The last time you heard from us, we were talking about how white silence creates violence, and that black lives matter in aromatherapy.
(We still stand by all of this 100% and hope that this is only the beginning of a long overdue conversation.)
But in a twist of irony, we made a big statement about how we won’t be silent and well—we’ve been silent ever since.
To put it colloquially, we posted and ghosted.
We didn’t mean to.
Shortly after posting our statement, my father, Sylla’s husband, O.V. Hanger, passed away unexpectedly on June 8th, 2020. Read more about the amazing man we’ve lost and want to remember.
In shock and devastation, we haven’t been able to do anything but be silent since.
Now that we’ve had a few weeks to recalibrate, we have clarity on what to continue and what to let go of, temporarily or totally.
Moving through the rest of this year, you won’t be hearing from us as much as we integrate this new reality into our lives.
We’ve paused the Inner Sanctum Membership for now, but we do plan to reopen it again, most likely in early 2021. Please join our email list if you want to know when doors to the membership will open back up again.
We also paused our Course Immersion, but we will restart it in August. If you’d like to join us for a Fall Immersion in the Aromatherapy Practitioner Course, this will be your last chance to study with us this year.
Registration is open, but only for a few students, as we only have a few of the essential oil kits that come with the course made right now. We can’t make any more at this time.
We’ll announce everything on our email list first. Subscribe here, and you’ll be the first to know about any updates.
I’ll be providing more updates in the next few days and weeks but wanted to write this first so you all know what’s going on with us.
We’ve received amazing support from our aromatherapy community during this time of deep grief and sadness. Thank you to everyone who has sent messages, packages, cards, and support via our meal train.
If you haven’t heard from us personally, you will. We’re taking our time to connect with everyone, as we need support throughout the coming months.
We’re trying to see each day as a new oppurtunity for growth and healing. I’m hoping that through my healing process, I’ll come out ready and able to help more of you as we all navigate the tough waters of this human experience.
