"In my heart and mind, Alchemy of Avalon has always been more than just a tea and herbs company: I have always seen it as a place where I could be all my "selves", and encourage others to do the same. I imagine the Avalonian Arts to include many ways to heal: Music and Song, Dance, Divination, and more."
Below are some current offerings in music and dance from classically trained singer and accomplished Fusion Bellydancer, Suzanne O'Gara:
