Botanical aromas in the form of essential oils have a direct and intimate relationship with our spirit. When we breathe during meditation, we connect our mind, body and spirit with every inhalation.

In the Christian Tradition the season of Advent anticipates new insights as it remembers ancient tales, via rituals, stories and symbols, of the human birth of a child named Jesus of Nazareth some 2000 years ago.

The Advent season is a special time for Christians. As we prepare for the celebration of Christmas, we remind ourselves of the promise of our loving God, and how divine wisdom dwells within each of us. We only need to recognize the many ways God is present in our lives each day and how we can be a reflection of his love to those around us.

The labyrinth is an ancient symbol used around the world as a metaphor for life's journey.

For centuries, labyrinths have been used for centering reflection, self-discovery, and mindful movement for all who take the time to walk or wheel the path.
