We host our first edition upon the arrival of the Autumn Equinox; through the lens of the Metal Element, blending bespoke facial oils using organic and natural ingredients, before an indulgent facial massage.
Autumn corresponds with the Metal element; known as the “the alchemist”; symbolising renewal and transformation, honouring reverence and the art of letting go. Like the trees begin to shed their leaves to prepare for deep rest throughout winter, it is time to gently gravitate inwards away from the Yang of summer, into more Yin rituals and practices.
We will begin with a scented breath sequence, guided body scan, herbal tea tasting & card pull, before we dive into the alchemy and aromatics of the season and element.
In this workshop, you will blend a personalised facial prescription and experience a guided facial massage & Gua Sha sequence to release tension and stress, clear stagnation and blockages, renew circulation and blood flow.
Leave with your skin, spirit & state of mind feeling relaxed and refreshed.
