Jan 5: Classic Women’s Week

with Aura Aura Photography & Laura Swan 

AURA AURA is an experiential portrait practice of Detroit-based creative, Eileen Lee. This practice serves as a vessel for exploring the “human atmosphere” by utilizing analog technology and instant peel-apart film that is no longer being produced. Through a non-traditional long exposure, emulating a double exposure process of capturing your bio-magnetic, vibrational energy, we make the metaphysical visible, resulting in awe-inspiring, one-of-a-kind portraits. Available at Golden Door this week. Learn More: https://www.auraaura.co/


Ignite Your Intuition with Laura Swan 

All women have an inherent, powerful ability to connect to intuitive and spiritual guidance within. But so often our wise inner voice gets drowned out by the noise of our busy everyday lives. Enjoy a week of gentle guidance through mind, body, and spirit rituals and practices to ignite your intuition and “6th sense,” allowing you to strengthen your own magical connection to the sacred and tap into your own inner voice. When we take the time to slow down and listen, all of the answers and creative solutions we could ever need for healing, manifesting, and navigating life’s challenges are right there within us… just waiting to be embraced. Enjoy this full week at the start of the new year to slow down and get crystal clear so you can call forth the deepest desires of your Soul for 2020. Together we will draw upon ancient feminine healing practices to ignite your intuition and empower the Wise Woman, Priestess, and Intuitive Healer within you.
