Please join us to celebrate the release of Kypris Aster Drake's new book, Shamanic Stress Relief: Six Gateways to a Happier Life.

The party will start with tea and cookies, plus time to socialize with likeminded people. You may also browse the delightfully handcrafted and beautiful items in the store, including crystals, jewelry, pagan-centered decorative items, and store owner Diana’s famous handmade bath salts.

After some time to settle in, Kypris will read from her book and lead a shamanic meditation designed to help you relax and rejuvenate. She will also speak about resiliency as a key to dealing with the increasing pressures of our everyday world.

The evening will end with time to ask questions and a good old fashioned book signing.

This is a very practical book, created to help you keep stress and anxiety from destroying your physical health and peace of mind.
