Help Your Self Closing Ceremony

We invite the Help Your Self community to join us Sunday for a sacred closing ritual and ceremony for our storefront on Java Street. Help us release our physical space with love and welcome our new directions with the spirit of abundance and joy.

Ceremony 4-5pm
Final Shopping Event 5-6pm

Tea and water will be provided.

We ask that you bring an offering for the altar – fruit, flowers, stones, tree branches, plants, candles (unscented), representations of the elements, talismans, etc. The items will stay with the altar, so it should be something you can part with.

Wear comfortable, non-restrictive clothing – we’ll be sitting on the ground and taking a shamanic journey together (no experience necessary; chairs can be provided if needed).

Thank you for your support!


Catherine Foley had a vision of Help Your Self during an acupuncture session in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, in 2014. She saw that she would open a “general store for the spirit,” and she received the name right then and there. From that moment, she made the changes in her life to allow the business to come to life. Help Your Self – originally a holistic wellness store and healing center on Java Street in Greenpoint –  is now the showcase for Catherine’s healing practice, teaching, events, writing, consulting, and product formulation. Catherine is especially passionate about creating strategic alliances, partnerships and collaborations to advocate and elevate nutritional, botanical and spiritual healing, personal care and well-being. Catherine believes we can forge new global health paradigms through conscious leadership, intergenerational healing and environmental stewardship.
