Rituals, Nichos and Ofrendas (Feb 2021)

Rituals, Nichos and Ofrendas with Maria – Say Hola

Over 20 people have attended this class

Description

New year, new intentions. Take part in this beautiful Latinx offering ritual to help you say adios to the old, and hola to the new. Set your intentions - personal, professional or spiritual - by creating a mood board, or  ‘nicho altar’.  This practice will help you succinctly place your thoughts, energy and intuition into a meaningful shrine that emits exactly what you want to get out of this precious life of yours.

Join Maria Flores from Say Hola in this happy tradition and visual meditation to help you set your 2021 intentions. All materials are provided, however bring along pictures or items that you would like to include in your nicho. Think about what your focus is for the year ahead. Where does your intention lie? Where will you hang your nicho to be a constant reminder of where you are wanting to head? Leave some space for magic…

Latin sweets and a refresco (refreshing beverage!) are of course provided as well as some sweet Latin tunes and maybe even a game of loteria to begin!  This is both a meaningful and fun workshop - make a day of it and invite your BFF’s x

It was such a wonderful treat getting into my creativity again through making Nichos. It was so relaxing and inviting. As simple as they may look it still required a creative process and that's what I was looking for -to think creatively again! Thank you Maria for making me think outside "my" box again! Now I want to try them for myself! 💀❤️🌹❤️💀 Sandra
