Warrior Goddess Wisdom: Reclaiming the Authentic Impact of Your Deepest Self

Sunday April 8th, 2018


In last month’s Straight Pin Session, Andi Scarbrough of Crownworks led a conversation designed to create awareness and empower stylists with sacred tools and rituals to serve salon guests way beyond cut and color. This month we will continue the threads of this conversation by exploring and expanding who is serving your salon guests and how you can strengthen the impact of your service by aligning with your deepest and most authentic self.


The purpose of this workshop is to create awareness and empower stylists to reclaim or strengthen their connection to the wisdom and energies of their deepest and most authentic selves. The Warrior Goddess trainings of shamanic teacher HeatherAsh Amara will be the foundation for our experiential and dialogical work together. The Warrior Goddess trainings will be tailored and augmented to address the most impactful theories, tools, and practices to align and allow your deepest, most authentic selves to be in service to your salon guests.
