Meditation & Candle Making Workshop
Date & Time:Sunday, 22th Nov, 14:00PM Location: The Lab, Tussen de Bogen 51 Amsterdam Approx class time: 4 Hours
Nienke and Isil both have the passion for living a conscious life. Their shared interest for mindful living and eco-friendly luxury products brought forward the idea to combine a meditation practice with a creative candle making workshop. Within this workshop Isil and Nienke will bring meditation and inspiration together in an extraordinary way.
The workshop is designed for you to tap in to your creativity and express yourself in making a little piece of art. Why are meditation and candles the best match ever? Both bring us joy, relaxation and a feeling of coming home.
2:00pm: Moving in Meditation We start the workshop with an empowering Visualization Meditation practice to let the creative juices flow throughout your whole body. During this practice you will be encouraged to tap into your imagination and you will meet your inner-artist. This practice is for you to feel refreshed and inspired, so you can create your very own unique candle! 3:00pm: Break Drinks and snacks. 3:30pm: Candle Making This is a beginner level candle making workshop where you'll learn all the basics and hints about blending essential/fragrance oils and making your own candle. During the class, you'll be taken step-by-step through the candle making process. First, we’ll start with a discovery of yourself, getting to know what type of scents work for you. You’ll have the opportunity to smell our selection of essential oils, and to blend them to make your very own, unique scents. Alternatively, you can choose one of our signature blends to craft. At the end of the course, you'll pour your own 170ml rapeseed candle (and name it!). Ingredients: 100% natural rapeseed wax, essential oils, paraben free-botanical fragrances and cotton wick. Burn time: 45-50 Hours Size: 170ml
5:30pm: Candle Light Yoga Flow The workshop ends with a very soothing Candle Light Meditation. This practice promotes a calm and mellow meditational journey and the twinkling of the candles are helping you to relax and unwind after opening up your creative senses. Find yourself in a cosy environment to release the mind and let go. About Isil: Isil is the founder and maker of The Very Good Candle Company.

The scents are inspired by various music festivals and their unique locations all over the world; Coachella in the Californian desert, Glastonbury in the British rolling hills and Fuji Rock, an incredible festival held in the mountains of Japan. The products Isil creates are made by hand with plant-based and cruelty-free ingredients in The Lab, located in Amsterdam.
