Word of the Year for 2023 Learn & Playshop

Find Your Word and Personal Numbers for 2023 in this fun Word-Play and Numerology Discovery Session with Mill artist CJ Shelton!

DATE:  Saturday, January 7, 2023
TIME:  1 to 4:30 pm (3.5 hours)
LOCATION:  In-person @ Studio #206 on the upper level of The Alton Mill Arts Centre
FEE:  $140 + HST per person (includes all art materials)

Start your new year off right by using some “mystical” and creative tools to help determine the universal and personal energies that will be affecting your year ahead as you create a visual guiding “map” to reinforce them.

Join Mill artist CJ Shelton in using numerology, oracle cards, symbols, sigils and other tools to make connections between the greater energies influencing your life and which ones you want to focus on to help manifest your dreams and goals.

This workshop will provide a brief introduction to Numerology and how the Universal Year number for 2023 interacts with your own Personal Numbers. Next, a few exercises and short meditation will help you pick (or confirm) a strong and effective word or phrase as your mantra and touchstone for 2023. You will then write out your word or encode it as a sigil (a type of symbol used in magick) and embellish it using a fun and easy method called zentangling (similar to the sample shown). No artistic skills are needed. If you can doodle, you can do it!

Affirmations and vision boards will only get you so far but understanding the energetic vibrations of the year ahead and having your own energetic “map” to guide you will have you doing 2023 in a whole new way. You will leave this workshop full of positivity and armed with some very tangible navigation tools.

This is an in-person workshop and limited to 6 participants. Please note that masks may be requested to be worn if Covid protocols are put in place again.
