PARKE RITUALS :: HEALING THROUGH THE ART OF RITUAL
Parke Rituals was birthed during my magical journey with the Gaia School of Healing and out of my deep, dark, intense healing journey with late stage Lyme Disease. After being submerged in treatments + protocols for 20+ years, my healing took a new + revitalized course when I reunited with the process of creating rituals in my self care.
Re.introducing myself to the exquisite beauty of SELF LOVE.
And so Spirit Soak was born. Bathing in petals + leaves. Hydrotherapy + plant medicine wrapped in one.
My first blend Deep Earth was created to soothe the severe pain that can accompany Lyme. And so I bathed and bathed. And continued to come back to life. As I was re.birthing + re.awakening, soaking in the healing waters, and drinking my daily infusions of my beloved allies of Nettle, Schizandra, Comfrey, Hibiscus, Rose, Oatstraw and so many more, I began to also reunite with my artist self :: a part of me that had been extinguished.
And this time, as my internal waters began to flow again, as I was being nourished in so many profound ways that my depleted body was needing, my paintings began to also flow out of me :: in a lightness, a fluidity, a vitality, a serenity that had not been there before. There are now three blends of Spirit Soak, along with Petals+Greens, an illuminating skin salve, that I use for daily self massage.
May we all find deep healing through the art of ritual.
