6/19/18 CRYSTALS 101: ROSE QUARTZ Hosted by Kara. 7-8:30pm, $10-$15 sliding scale. Do you find yourself drawn to crystals, gems, and minerals? Have you ever wondered if that attraction means more than visual appeal? In this workshop, we will discuss origins, history, and uses of the crystal Rose Quartz, and how to use it and other crystals to amplify or simplify the energy of your environment, your rituals, and your personal energy. Participants will walk away with an Rose Quartz specimen and enough information to begin incorporating the crystal into their daily lives as a companion, tool, and gift for others. No experience necessary, all are welcome.

6/21/18 SOLSTICE CHANT CIRCLE Hosted by Daun. $5-$10 sliding scale. Walk-ins welcome. Have you ever been scared to use your voice? Womxn especially are encouraged by society to fear their own voice, their own breath, and their own bodies in space. This circle strives to play with pushing against these obstacles by courageously utilizing voice in a group. In this circle, we will create a welcoming & comfortable space; then challenge you to open your voice and heart through chant, & trust those around you to suspend judgement and uphold you. We will focus on one simple chant-which we’ll learn as a group-to connect and flow with Solstice energy.
