Mix and Mingle: Celebrating Women
A celebration was held Saturday, March 1 0 at Color of Life Yoga Studio, in Dover-Foxcroft, Maine. The event was a rousing success, as women from around the area connected and shared information, insights and laughter.This event was put together by Color of Life Yoga, Don't Worry Bee Happy Healing and Dutch Hex Sign.
Jj Starwalker of DutchHexSign.com presented a array of hex signs for the occasion. The prayers manifest in the signs to empower women through community connection and by finding their own personal power.
The signs that are still available are now for sale on this special page.

in which I was taught and the directions in
which I have taken it.
