Stuck in burnout? Transform fear into innovation.

Participants will have a hands-on opportunity to put flame to wood. Yakisugi developed in Japan as a solution to the destructive forces of Mother Nature.

You apply as much or as little flame to a wood object, demonstrating the protective nature of fire. Apply additional flame to experience a noetic transformation. Take home your personalized artistic expression. The flame does all the work!

Creative expression is a scientifically proven method to end burnout. Originally used for exterior siding and roofing to counteract the salty sea air destroying wooden houses. Burning wood creates a layer of carbon protecting the inner wood core.
