GIFT GUIDE: TAKE FLIGHT
OFFERINGS THAT LEAD ONE TO THEIR HIGHEST SELF
We present our gift guide series, each focused on a different area of life to nurture and celebrate— whether it be tending to home, discovering ways to “play dirty,” or focusing on self-exploration. Allow these gifts to shift and unlock something new for the recipients: adventure, joy, empowerment, energy, freedom.
We invite you to come back each week, explore, and find your flavor of love to share.

On the platform, Dr. Mariel Buque offers sound healing meditations, somatic work, and at-your-own-pace accountability measures.
So, you know you’re a Gemini rising and a Pisces moon, but what does that mean, really? Allow Eric B Healed to take you on a esoteric and mind-bending journey, as he channels spirit and guides to understand the meaning behind your birth chart.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the meridian points along the physical form —where acupuncturists needle— have poetic names that denote something deeper about what they are serving to heal. Spleen 1 also known as “hidden brightness,” for example. Riffing on that concept, Nature of the Points illustrated these points and their monikers through beautiful works of art that feel inspired by Hilma af Klint and other mystical conduits. Perfect for the person who has all of their healers on speed dial.
Combining her background as a reiki master, sound healer, herbalist, and coach, Nicole creates personalized and group programming to help you tap into your heart, release old patterns, and embody your most radiant self.
Maybe you know someone who wants to dip their toe in the mystical but is overprotective with their time.
