ARDOR

is a wellness center, gathering space, and a thoughtfully curated boutique featuring western herbs, tinctures, potions, clothes, and pretty curiosities, most all of which we source from our talented, creative friends.

We produce events that explore ritual, myth and consciousness.

We believe in kindness and compassion. We trust in the power of plants. We bow down to the mineral kingdom. The animal kingdom too. We love ceremony. Explorations. Pataphysics. LEDs. Contemplations. Sharing. Resonance. And yoga.
