If you weren’t able to order The Healer: Sensory Offerings, we wanted to share a simple DIY version with this watch guide. Take a brief moment to gather any of these items to set the stage at home for our virtual premiere. Enjoy the tastes, smells, and sensations throughout the performance whenever you are moved to do so.
Boil some water and steep yourself a mug of hot tea. Herbal teas like ginger, mint, and ginseng can be a relaxing and effective way to treat a variety of ailments. Sip your tea and sooth your soul throughout the performance.
Surround yourself in gentle scents of aromatherapy. Light a scented candle or incense, burn some sage, or switch on your essential oil diffuser to fill your room with smells that can reduce anxiety, ease tension, or energize your spirits depending on the scent. Lavender can help with insomnia or depression, sweet orange can lift your mood, and eucalyptus can soothe the respiratory system to name a few.
Notepaper and pen
Create your own wishing tree note. Close your eyes. Think of a person, place, or thing towards which you’d like to direct some healing intentions. Write it down on a note and keep it someplace safe after the performance.
The Healer explores a variety of ways to circulate air in space through breath, fans, and physical movement. Find a hand-held or electric fan (or fold up a piece of paper to create one). Inhale, exhale, and use this fan to feel the wind in your hair.
Grab a ginger candy which can stimulate digestion, reduce inflammation, and soothe headaches, nausea, colds, coughs, and more. Or find any other sweet, sour, or savory bite-sized treat that brings you satisfaction. Unwrap and enjoy its benefits.
