Henna is a magical plant that, when ground into a paste and applied to the skin, binds to the keratin and leaves behind a reddish brown stain. Receiving Henna from a well practiced artist is a rite of passage and an intimate bonding experience. Some would call it sacred. Nam Joti will be available for Henna adornment services in between class times. This is an opportunity to slow down and allow yourself to be honored.
