Dance, Paint, Write!
End your day with a body/mind/spirit unifying experience. Join us every Tuesday for Dance, Paint, Write! We start each session gently walking, claiming the space for our own as the music plays. Each participant is encouraged to listen deeply to impulses in the body that call out to be moved or find a place of stillness. Within moments we are all following signals from our bodies that lead us into a self directed personal dance. After 20 minutes we shift our expressive modality to painting. Encouraged not to plan or think about what we will create on the paper, we listen to the impulses and inspirations that come from within and allow the colors on our paintbrushes to dance. The process then continues with 20 minutes of free writing followed by a simple writing prompt that pulls the whole experience together. Each session concludes in a safe, supportive circle where we share our reflections. Some want to share their writing, and talk about their painting, others prefer to be silent. It’s entirely up to you what you choose to share. Please join us for one or all sessions of this deeply satisfying practice. Appropriate for complete beginners and movers, artists and writers of all skill levels. Open to adults and teens.

Women and Girls Wisdom/Moon Circle
Where in our culture is there a safe space for women and girls to circle together, speaking their hearts and experiencing the magic and support of Sisterhood? In a society that revels in ‘mean girl’ culture, and in light of the blatant misogyny that has been recently expressed in the political arena, we must find ways to model women surrounding each other with positivity and support. Join us for this free quarterly gathering of girls (aged mature 7+) and women as we honor ourselves and each other in a safe and confidential sharing circle.
Join us in celebration of ourselves as daughters, mothers and sisters. We will create sacred space, pull oracle cards, take a guided drum visualization to visit Root Woman, draw the images we bring back and share what is in our hearts and minds. There will be song and dance, laughter and a deep knowing that we are united in community no matter where we are. This circle in no way conforms to the rules or standards of any official religion or spiritual practice. All who identify as women and girls, who are able to listen quietly and respectfully until it is their turn to speak are welcome. Young girls, under 14 must be accompanied by an adult. We welcome mothers, daughters and grandmothers, college students, retired women, and working women. All who identified as a women are welcome and encouraged to attend.
