See how fun and easy it is to create a zodiac chart with Kathryn Costa’s new stencils. In this first project, you’ll pick two colors that you love to “tap” and “pounce” paint onto the stencil to form the wheel. Then we’ll walk through the progression of 12 zodiac signs from Aries to Pisces adding their symbols to the zodiac chart.
The characteristics of each zodiac sign relates to one of the classical elements of fire, earth, air, and water. We’ll make connections with the chakras, the energy centers within your body. If you have Kathryn Costa’s chakra stencils, you can pull those out for more play time in your journal.
Not all signs of the same element are exactly alike. Learn which signs are the instigators, which ones are the finishers, which ones are slow to change, and which ones are the most flexible. We’ll take a look at these qualities in your personal birth chart.

Yesterday was opening day at The Oasis and for many participants who joined one of the three sessions throughout the day said:
“I’ve needed to get my creativity back.”
There are four ingredients to each Oasis session that will activate your creativity.
1. An Inspiring Theme 2. Soul Journey Meditation 3. Time set aside to show up for your creativity 4. Connection with other kindred spirits (The insights, inspiration, and cool project ideas will fire you up!)
Here’s what Mandy had to say,
“I can’t tell you how the meditation frees me up to really create from a blank slate so to speak. I love it and the weekly theme!!!”
If you are looking to awaken your creativity, stoke the creative fires, or open up your intuition, join me at The Oasis.
Topic: Beltane Fire Date: May 1, 2020 Time Options: 10 am, 2 pm, 7 pm, EST/Boston (check your time zone)
It’s time for Spring cleaning! What limiting beliefs, old habits, karmic patterns, physical or emotional pains are you ready to release? This heavy energy blocks creativity. Let’s clear it!
This week’s theme is inspired by Beltane, a May Day festival held on May 1st about halfway between the spring equinox and the summer solstice. We’ll work with the powerful element of fire in the Soul Journey meditation where you’ll transform heavy energy into light and love during a fire ceremony.
The Oasis gives you the time and space to quiet the noise outside yourself, so you’ll find the answers & wisdom within you. The session includes 40 minutes of free time to nourish your soul and creative spirit. You’ll be inspired to create art infused with healing intentions and energy.
We’ll wrap up our Oasis session with a Sharing Circle that celebrates the inspirations and insights of each participant.
Kathryn, do you have a friend who you would love to share this experience with? Invite them to swing by here to sign up too! A journey is best when shared.
