THRIVING IN BEAUTY:
A 5-Part Resiliency Series
with Holly Calica
Session 1: Prevailing over Fear, Anxiety & DepressionLet’s gain insight into our perception of fear and courage. We will receive guidance from Angel Card readings, consider how to build courage, learn about plant allies to overcome fear, anxiety and depression. Holly will share ideas for using teas, essential oils and flower essences during this session.
Session 2: Drawing, Painting & Crafting Our EmotionsLet’s focus on examining our emotions. We will move through breath work, explore herbal allies to support our respiratory system and our breath. Holly will share helpful flower essences for increasing creativity and processing emotions. Let’s experiment with line, shape, color and form as we create artwork to express ourselves visually with our own materials from home.
Session 3: Creating Balance through Music & MovementLet’s focus on dance and music to enliven ourselves. The session will include stretching, aerobic activity and a cool down, with emphasis on rhythm and range of motion. Holly will share herbal allies to support our cardiovascular and our musculoskeletal systems. Dress comfortably, have a mat or towel for your floors and water to drink to stay hydrated!
Session 4: Invigorating Our Five SensesLet’s journey through all our senses to explore our surroundings while stimulating each sense. Can we find scents, spices, foods, interesting textures or visual delights in our homes? Let’s explore what it means to be in the moment by engaging and celebrating our ability to live with these senses.
Session 5: Visioning, Dreaming and Living in Our HeartsLet’s reflect on our experiences of 2020 and then envision what needs to fall away from our lives. With this letting go, we will dream and create a vision for how we see ourselves in the future by exploring our new roles or responsibilities while opening ourselves up for new possibilities in our lives. For those of us that garden, we will harvest our roots, plant bulbs for the future or plant ourselves firmly to be rooted in the now so we can endure the winter and spring back up with elegance and grace next spring.
