Kristine Keegan

200 Hour Certified Yoga Teacher | Yin Yoga & Restorative Yoga Teacher  | Reiki III Practitioner | Arcana Reiki Teacher

Kristine started practicing yoga looking to provide balance to an over active, busy life. Time on the mat allowed her to take her focus inward. Embracing as much of the teachings she could get her hands on, she knew she found her passion ~ a true seeker on a path. Eleven years later, she still is deeply driven by the many aspects of the practice and to embrace the next steps as they come.As a teacher, Kristine loves to share yoga and its teachings to all the other seekers out there. Some of many teachers that influence her are: Jacqui Bonwell, Shiva Rea, Roberto Lim, Heidi MacVane, Danielle Toolan, and Sagel Urlacher.

Kristine is a graduate of the Sacred Seeds Yoga School and is also Yin Yoga and Restorative certified. As a Reiki healer, she offers energy work that can be often found woven into her classes. Kristine’s classes are energetic, fun and informative. All levels are welcomed.

Gwen is a practicing witch, sex educator and reader of multiple methods of divination. As a Virgo Sun, Taurus Moon and Gemini Rising, Gwen aims to provide clients with holistic, heartfelt and dialogue-oriented tarot readings. She emphasizes the interconnection of the cards with correspondences of associated spiritual systems, such as astrology, numerology and crystal healing.

After significant transformation of her spirituality, her degree, her location and herself, Gwen graduated from the University of Southern Maine with a B.A. in Women and Gender Studies and a minor in Holistic and Integrative Health.

Gwen’s intention for each reading is to provide a safe and supportive space in which clients can feel empowered by a deeper knowledge of themselves and their lives within the framework of the tarot.

"Love this store!! They carry such a unique variety of items .. I spent at least 45 minutes just walking around to look at everything!

The vibe in here is wonderful .. I could feel that the woman working there was there, not as an employee, but as a genuine ‘worker of the light’; I felt that in creating this wonderful little shop, and those working there have been working so hard, putting all their hearts and souls into this space, and it truly shows/ is felt! You can feel the ‘magic’ in the shop (I can still feel it coming off of the items I bought, which tells me that it’s certainly one of the true ones!) Such a cozy little place, but it’s filled with truly magical and powerful healing items, in such a wide variety - whatever you need, you can find it here!

I’ve only visited the shop once after hearing about it, but I’ll most definitely be back! So, here’s to Arcana - keep up the great work in being one of the brave ones working to make this world what it CAN, SHOULD, & WILL BE! YOUR LIGHT IS SO VERY NEEDED!

Sending much love and light your way!"
