Color Magic: Invoking the Power of the Rainbow to Manifest all of your Desires

The magic of color is real! Every color has meaning and energy that is constantly engaging with our subconscious. The visuals we surround ourselves with strongly affect our mood and state of mind everyday. In this experiential workshop, we will dive into the full spectrum of color's impact: the culture of color around the world, the magical properties of color and how different hues make us feel in our environments. We will learn how to intuitively choose specific personalized hues to invoke intentions within our surroundings. Consciously chosen colors can enhance your life and give you the power to evoke the spark of change you have been looking for to create your own reality. You deserve all you desire and it can start manifesting now through the power of the rainbow!
