"Slow down... notice this life, this body, this moment!"

Not every act of self-care has to be a deep dive. Join us for a light afternoon of mind-body awareness blending facial care with guided meditation and conversation. We’ll be making our own face masks and discussing the best natural ingredients to use on our skin. Afterwards we will take a break to center ourselves through a guided mediation to cultivate nourishment from the inside out as well!

Co-Facilitated by Nia Bauke + Kara Pierson

Nia Baucke is the founder of local skincare brand Cypress Skin & Beauty. A communications strategist by day, Nia's passion for skincare came from her personal journey of looking to find clean and natural solutions to her acneic and oily skin. Cypress offers group self-care experiences through its DIY Skincare Bar and will be launching its first product in the winter of 2017. Cypress' goal is to spread the joy of skin care as self-care and develop conscious and confident consumers.

Kara Pierson is the Director of Events and Hospitality at The Hive.
