Philosophy and Comments
Many people, today, often call henna body art a "henna tattoo". I encourage everyone to discover the wonderful history of henna body art and find that it is a rich tradition and artform all its own that has been around as long as ink tattoo, possibly longer. Henna has been an integral part of many a tradition and ritual in the cultures of the middle East, India and North Africa, over the centuries. Now it is taking root in the West as a means of self expression, in addition to retaining its healing energy in the context of baby blessings (maternity henna), wedding henna, birthday celebrations and much, much more.
Most notable is hennas role in the wedding ceremony in the form of bridal henna and the application of henna on the guests as means of blessing the marriage. But henna is also part of performance tradition, as in the display of henna in belly dance. Used in healing rituals in some cultures, henna is a wonderful way to bless your body during challenging times or celebrate the triumph over a challenge, after the fact. Henna is not only about beauty, it is also about connecting to something more vital and deep within ourselves. Henna is for ceremony and for everday. Henna is for everyone. :)
Aside from private and group henna session, I also offer group and private instruction in this wonderful artform. Please write me an email, or call, and let me know what you have in mind.
