“Study the Art of Science. Study the Science of Art. Develop your Senses.”

Leonardo da Vinci

One of the greatest scientists/artists of all time inspired the creation of this beautiful sensory experience. The night begins with a brief introduction from Amanda on the science behind our sniffers and how aroma may be used to deepen our intentions. This followed by a guided meditation, setting the intention to unlock your own creativity to paint a watercolor with instruction by Dawn.

“Let go…it is time to play!”
