Reiki & Crystal Healing with Kat Collins – Gentle but powerful Usui Reiki energy work with crystals. Practitioner Kat goes head to toe concentrating on main chakra points and meridians in order to clear and revitalize your auric field. They finish it off by sealing your field and passing on any intuitive messages that came through.

Kat Collins is a shamanic practitioner, intuitive channeler, and energy worker who loves all things mystical. Currently enrolled in a Masters Program for Counseling, Kat’s goal is to open a private practice where they can combine psychological and transpersonal techniques for ultimate healing. They believe in the inherent wholeness and magic of each person and think that the true core of healing is to come to an embodied awareness of that fact.

Ojibwe Medicine Wheel Tarot Readings with Shaan Souliere – Shaan is a member of Garden River First Nation Band of Ojibwes in Canada. She will give Tarot readings based on the wisdom of the Ojibwe Medicine Wheel.

Raised in a home where sociopolitical issues among First Peoples were emphasized just as much as faith, music, and the arts, at a young age Shaan developed deep spiritual roots alongside a passion for equity for her people. Shaan believes passionately that profound change within a society begins with healing the heart of its people, and incorporates the principles of Mino Bimaadiziwin into her work as a victim’s advocate to create holistic, culturally informed practices.

Saraswati Readings with Tibetan Bowl Sound Healing with Natalja Aicardi – Natalja Aicardi, devotee of the Hindu Goddess Saraswati and Certified Practitioner of Tibetan Bowls Massage, gives readings using Saraswati watercolor cards that were especially channeled and manifested for her by her friend, artist and collaborator, Francesca Ceccarelli, who handmade them while listening to Natalja’s chanting to Saraswati. During the reading, Natalja invokes Saraswati, the Goddess of knowledge, music, art, speech, wisdom and learning. With the healing sounds of the Tibetan bowls, Natalja creates a sacred space for a collaborative dialogue between you and your heart’s desire, to express something that’s been blocked or hidden. The sounds and the cards will help you access your flow, connect to your inspiration and receive the guidance you need on your creative path of healing, transformation and expression. The name Saraswati stems from the Sanskrit root “saras,” which means “that which is fluid.” Maa (mother) Saraswati is known to bring order out of chaos and has a calming and centering personality.  Her Festival happens on the first day of spring. What is ready to emerge for you when you allow yourself to open to the present moment and flow on the Saraswati river?

Natalja Aicardi is an international multi-disciplinary artist, theatre creator, energy practitioner, teacher, yoga witch from Italy via Croatia and Sweden, based in Chicago since 2005. Performing, collaborating and making others feel comfortable in their own skin is her passion and being a member of Life Force Arts Ensemble means doing all three. Natalja’s dream is to help people retrieve their unique gifts and build a safe and free world where all voices matter and respect each other, using all the artistic and healing tools in her toolbox.
