For those unfamiliar with medi- tation classes, Prima Elements explains, "A New Moon meditation class is a specific type of meditation session that typically occurs around the time of the New Moon. e New Moon is associated with new begin- nings and a clean slate in astrology and many spiritual practices. During these classes, participants often focus on setting intentions, releasing what no longer serves them, and connect- ing with the energy of new possibili- ties…We provide a structured and supportive environment for individu- als to tap into the energies of the New Moon and align their intentions with it." Phases of the moon and how they affect the world are not a foreign concept for many, especially here in the South, where full moons are credited for full birthing centers and jails. According to Prima Elements, each moon phase carries a different energy to be tapped into. "e moon phases have been a source of fascination and belief for many cultures throughout history. While the scientific evidence for direct, profound effects on individu- als is limited, some believe the moon can influence human behavior and emotions. "Here's a general overview of how moon phases are thought to affect us: 1. New Moon: It's associated with new beginnings and setting inten- tions. Many people use this phase for goal setting and planning. "2. Waxing Crescent : As the moon grows, it's believed to bring energy and momentum. People often feel more motivated during this phase. "3. First Quarter: is phase is often seen as a time for taking action, making decisions, and overcoming challenges. e moon's gravitational pull influences Earth's tides, a scien- tifically established phenomenon. If you find that moon phases positively impact your mindset and well-being, it can be a valuable tool for personal growth and self-reflection." Owner and military veteran, Hilda Burgos, founded Prima Elements Holistic Wellness Center in 2012, and runs the business with her son, Adri- an Burgos, and his wife, Audriaunna Burgos, managing the day-to-day operations of the Center.
