Divine Feminine with Erin Sickler

$10 (gallery admission included)

PURPOSE: There has been a ton of talk lately about the Divine Feminine. Even if we feel the affinity to those words, however, we need to first clarify: What is this Divine Feminine? How do we relate to something that has been suppressed and so infrequently discussed or represented? In this talk and discussion, art curator and writer Erin Sickler, will take us on a tour of three figures of the feminine divine--Isis, the High Priestess; Haumea, the Mother Goddess of Hawaii; and Lilith, the spirit of vengeance and the shadow--and how we can harness the lessons of these archetypes for our own individual and collective transformation.

PROCESS: The event will consist of an overview of the stories of Isis, Haumea, and Lilith and how we might use these archetypes for our own physical, emotional, and psychological healing as well as some somatic exercises.

Connecting to Dreams with Healing Plants lead by
Liz Neves of Gathering Ground

Whether you have a dreaming practice or don’t ever remember your dreams…

Let us gather in circle to share our experiences in the Dreamtime – a vital part of life with great potential for healing that often goes unnoticed, untapped, or misunderstood.

It’s time to wake up to the medicine of your dreams and follow the threads of meaning and magic they hold.

Join us for a couple of hours of fun, experiential learning and deepening of psyche awareness, where we’ll:

• Touch on techniques and sample herbs that improve dream recall and stimulate lucid dreaming

• Create dream sachets to support our practice

• Share our dreams and unpack them with group exercises

• Journey to elements of our dreams that draw us in or offer healing messages

Please bring a journal, a small crystal or stone, and a dream to share!

*Dreams can include: what we remember from our sleeping dreams, daydreams, strong hunches or feelings that lead to serendipitous occurrences, or visions/feelings/sounds from journeys or guided meditations.

Adults Soul Painting Ceremony with Bianca Dominguez

$10 (gallery admission included)

PURPOSE: Soul Paintings mirror the True Essence within each individual. Each soul has layers upon layers that rest within, mirroring multiple timelines of existence, and reflecting past lives. During the ceremony the karmic cords and the shadows of the self, are illuminated to be acknowledged and healed through the power of breathe, meditation, and creative expression.

PROCESS: We will begin in a circle sitting down in lotus position. Palo Santo will be passed around to cleanse and bless our bodies. In the center of the circle will an altar which will enable us to hold space for one another, and as we journey within. I will be facilitating the ceremony from the center. We will begin with a guided meditation focusing on our breathe and dropping within our bodies. I will open the space with a prayer of guidance, protection and love calling upon the ancestors, light beings, spirit guides, angels, spirit animals and the Great Spirit. We will rest in meditation for 10-15 minutes, at which point they begin the soul paintings on themselves. A mirror will be placed in front of each person. They will do only half of their face. After they complete half of their face they will get with a partner. First they will meditate with their backs supporting one another focusing on the breathe. The purpose is to tune into the interconnected energy that resides within them both. Being mindful of their internal space as well as their partner’s internal space. After 5 min they will turn to face one another and soul gaze. After 5 min partner A will complete the other half of partner B’s face. After partner B’s face is complete they will do the same for partner A. To close the space a guided meditation will begin and a closing gratitude prayer.
