Since time immemorial, altars have been a way to invite the sacred into our lives. Altars are designed as sacred spaces, where you can ask for grace to infuse your life, and for your intentions to manifest. Altars can contain items from any religious or spiritual practice, and will beautify your surroundings, while at the same time enable you to transform your lives.
The full moon is very significant in many ancient cultures. It holds the promise of fruition and fulfillment. Whatever good intention is initiated as the moon grows into fullness, has the potential to provide beneficial results. In this workshop, on the evening preceding the full moon in August, we will use the five elements to create full moon altars, based on the principles of Vastu Shasta. Once created, we will activate our altars, release our request into the Universe, with the intention of bringing forth positive and life enhancing change into our lives.
