HEALING THROUGH THE ART OF RITUAL
PARKE RITUALS was birthed during my deep, dark, intense, but profoundly magical + transformative healing journey with Lyme Disease. After being submerged in treatments + protocols for 20+ years, my healing took a new + revitalized course when I reunited with the process of creating rituals in my self care.
Re.introducing myself to the exquisite beauty of SELF LOVE.
And so SPIRIT SOAK was born. Bathing in petals + leaves. Hydrotherapy + plant medicine wrapped in one.
My first blend DEEP EARTH was created to soothe the severe pain that can accompany Lyme. And so I bathed and bathed. And continued to come back to life. As I was re.birthing + re.awakening, soaking in the healing waters, and drinking daily infusions of my beloved allies of Nettle, Schisandra, Comfrey, Hibiscus, Chickweed, Rose, Chaga, Oatstraw and so many more, I began to also reunite with my artist self :: a part of me that had been extinguished.
And this time, as my internal waters began to flow again, as I was being nourished in so many profound ways that my depleted body was needing, my paintings began to also flow out of me :: in a lightness, a fluidity, a vitality, a serenity that had not been there before. There are now three blends of SPIRIT SOAK, along with PETALS+GREENS, an illuminating skin salve, that I use for daily self massage.
May we all find DEEP HEALING THROUGH THE ART OF RITUAL.
