Collecting Art on a Budget

Interested to collect art but not sure where to start? Intimidated about inquiring about prices? 

So many people think that art collecting takes a life time of savings and expertise in the field of art history. Not true! Art collecting requires understanding your budget, narrowing down what kind of art you like, and figuring out how you're going to find it. 

We have designed a workshop that will help you:

~ Identify where you currently stand with your art collecting process. Are you just starting? Looking to grow your collection? Do you have a few pieces but not sure where to hang them or how they display together?

~ Learn how to talk about art and talk with artists to find the art you like. This includes breaking through the "intimidation barrier"

~ Define your style and needs (& wants!)

~ Review of types of artists and types of artwork to look for

~ Identify themes in your (new or growing) art collection

~ Make a budget to intentionally grow your collection. This includes costs you may not have considered and buying etiquette. 

Join us for a discussion on art & art collecting. Light refreshments provided.

At the end of the workshop, two artists will join us for the last 20 minutes to discuss their art to provide you with some practice speaking to artists!

Full Moon Circle
Apr

7:00 PM19:00

Full Moon Circle

The Full Moon on April 19th falls directly between Libra and Scorpio: two signs that very much complement one another. The air of Libra pulls out our need for balance, but also indecisiveness and fear of being alone. Funnily she’s not alone., but sharing space tonight with Scorpio. The water element channeling energy around Scorpio promotes passion and bravery. Talk about opposites colliding… but this is a night of harmony: a main craving for both signs.

Also important is the need to focus on air and water elements during the period between Spring & Summer Equinox, periods which channel rooting down into the earth more than other elements. Therefore, tonight is also very much about balance. Seeking the balance you need internally to prepare for the change of seasons from Spring into Summer.

If you’re a Summer baby, use this moon to release energies you hibernated through the winter and seek harmony for your intentions moving forward to be fully prepared and cleansed by the time Summer Equinox rolls around.

If you’re a Winter baby, you’re probably feeling that your season passed you too quickly. Take this time to marinate on what this time has been for you. Look back at March, how were you affected during Mercury’s Retrograde? If you were thrown off course, use this time to jump back on & reclaim your time.

Fall baes: This is your dormant period – but are you still doing the work? We’re hitting your half year point – take the time to curate the balance you need. Moon manifestations are strongest 6-months later: how can this practice prepare you for October? This is especially important if you are a Libra or Scorpio!

Spring loves: this is your time to shine! Use this moment to shed a layer of skin and become reborn during your season. Curating the balance of harmony between Libra & Scorpio into your daily life is a beautiful way to start…

This gathering of water and air elements provides us an important reminder to move like water and float in the air simultaneously. Grounding may not be what you need right now, can you challenge yourself to shift to be more adaptable and flexible, rather than still & firm? Such exercises are necessary for confidence and leadership.

Join local Reiki Practitioner Cierra Ross at Eaton Wellness in the beautiful Eaton Hotel in downtown Washington DC. Eaton Wellness + Latela Curatorial is a mindfulness & healing community in the heart of Washington DC that makes space for the community-at-large to gather and manifest every New & Full Moon. Healing dialogue + practices will be shared and come to life via a meditation podcast Summer 2019.

$33 PER PERSON, $59 IF YOU BOOK IN A PAIR. 

This workshop includes the following:

1 - A discussion on the astrology, chakra, and the energetic elements associated with this moon phase. 

2 - A group-led meditation to align the chakras while the room & our bodies are Reiki'ed with a collection of Healing Crystals, Sound Bath, and/or Aromatherapy.

3 - A writing exercise related to seeking harmony and balance that will rejuvenate energy for your own personal confidence and leadership.

4 – A group-led Reiki relaxation session focusing on the flexibility of water and air in relation to our physical Selves.

Consider this Full Moon an opportunity to align and clear all that does not balance.

FAQs

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

Please bring a journal and pen, and an object related to you that is a representation of your PASSION (this could be a photograph, a vision board, a paper with writing of goals, a creative craft tool like a paintbrush, etc).

WHAT IS REIKI?

Reiki, meaning ‘Universal Energy’ is an ancient and natural energy healing technique where the practitioner serves as a vessel to balance the subtle energies within our bodies. During a Reiki session, the practitioner uses a light touch to channel universal energy to a patient’s body. 

The purpose of Reiki Healing is to promote relaxation and stress reduction as well as restore balance and eliminate blockages. This process addresses physical, emotional, mental and spiritual imbalances as well as aligns the chakras. 

Benefits of Reiki include:
- Stress reduction
- Chakra (energy center) alignment
- Restores energy level balance throughout the body
- Improves concentration and perception/intuition
- Eliminates energy blockages
- Provides relaxation
- Assists with healing injuries
- Enhances immune system

IS IT OKAY TO BE A MEDITATION/REIKI NEWBIE?

YES! We will walk you through the basics and make sure we're focusing on the areas that best serve you during this workshop and its greater themes. This is why we keep circles small and have two leaders to be able to individually assist as well.
