We’ll take any excuse to spend a few hours out in Malibu – especially when a seaside sound bath and chakra-balancing dinner are part of the plan. We recently attended a gorgeous gathering hosted by the lovely wellness lifestyle pros, Vanessa Fitzgerald and Fern Langham, and the night left us feeling as uniquely well as you’d expect.
The evening brought together a community of inspiring wellness lovers, including ‘life stylist’ Luke Storey, our friends at Energy Muse (who provided stunning, chakra-coordinated crystals for each course) and various yogis and mind-body gurus from all around L.A. (scroll through the images above for a taste or the magic.)
Before floating off with a sound bath provided by songstress Larisa Rose, we sat down for a delicious and utterly unique chakra-themed dinner: a seven course family style experience by wellness chef, Aimee-Jean Greenacre. Each meticulously crafted dish was created to correspond with and benefit one of the chakras – which Chef Aimee achieved by artfully matching colors and ingredients that nourish each energy center. Peek below for a breakdown of the menu, and let it inspire your own version of this fun concept…
