“Wonderful class…..I loved it, Sarah is a great instructor and I would definitely do this again.” Becky Irvin.
“There is something really…organic to taping into your intuition and meditating as a starting point. I often create with a purpose and then I need to make a thing and it was really enjoyable to let go of that…then you go from there and then work with it and develop.” EM
