Full Moon in Pisces (final NYC based ceremony)

For my final full moon gathering in New York, we'll be meeting under my moon's home sign of Pisces. This deep and dreamy sign rules my favorite tarot card, The Moon. What a perfect farewell ceremony, indeed. This time around, I have some guided meditations planned to help us release into the dark ether of the universe, finding depth and power to move through the final days of summer and prepare for the harvest season of the fall.

We Thrive 2018

I'll be slinging cards for donations for Red Dot Campaign from 4-6pm, but this event will be a full day of expression and power. Check out the details below!

------

Since Red Dot’s inception, creative expression has been our foundational approach to highlighting the social, cultural and political practices surrounding civil and reproductive rights. Our annual art show serves as a platform for artists within our community to display work geared towards our collective consciousness.


Last year‘s show included a combination of visual work, installations, and live paintings that highlighted sustainable menstrual practices. This year, we want to broaden the scope of work and take time to reflect. In light of increasing physical, mental, and emotional exhaustion within our community, we want to offer a body of work that not only reflects on how we survived, but also how we channel negativity into change.We aim to thrive. We encourage all project proposals to align with that message so that we establish a clear dialogue centered around positive action and affirmation.

SUGGESTED DONATION

As we mentioned before, our annual art show doubles as a donation drive and we kindly ask guests to contribute at least one (1) pack of menstrual products or the monetary equivalent ($5-10) in exchange for entry to our show. Past recipients of our collections include local DC/NYC homeless shelters, halfway homes, underfunded schools or disaster relief efforts, thanks to the continued support of the Red Dot community. 

If you can't make it to our show, ongoing donations are always welcome here!

Yoga Movement Dance

How connected are your to the way your body moves? Do you love to dance? Or feel like you can't? Dance is an expression as basic and primal as breathing. It's a part of us. Deeper than speech. As intimate as touch. Like our postures and breath, it helps the prana flow.

This workshop will move through a flow asana sequence like a choreography building a body connection from the feet through the legs into the hips, belly, back chest shoulders arms, neck and head. We will use the familiarity of the asana to build the foundation for dynamic movement and self-expression.

You will have the chance to sit in the places of stuckness, Move from your depths and into your limbs. Express yourself with everything you have.

No dance or yoga experience required, there will be modifications for all levels. The purpose of this workshop is to connect to the joy of movement.

What Is Sliding Scale?
We offer all of our community offerings and some private sessions by Sliding Scale. 
We believe everyone is entitled to heal their wounds so they can thrive; we also believe that the wellness and healing practitioners deserve to make a living wage.  In order to make this possible, we ask you to pay as much as you can, so those who might not be able to pay as much can still receive their healing session - this is the idea behind 'paying it forward'.  We are all in this together, and we choose to do our best to take care of one another.  Thank you in advance!

Tarot for Sexual Empowerment
Jul

3:00 PM15:00

Tarot for Sexual Empowerment

Sexuality. The beautiful disaster swaddled in the cloth of guilt, shame, repression, ownership, and societal expectations. We long for the freedom to feel and touch and know and express ourselves, each other but lack the tools to speak truthfully, to explore fearlessly. 

Enter the Tarot. 

This powerful tool for self inquiry, discovery, reflection, divine connection, this mirror to our deepest Selves, holds our deepest darkest longings and grants the permission to explore. 

Do you have fantasies that make you feel shame? Do you have difficulty letting go? Or taking control? Or giving instruction? Maybe you’re not sure what you like. Maybe it’s hard to articulate. Maybe you simply want to go deeper to a place of pleasure seeking ecstasy you can’t quite pinpoint. 

The archetypal images of the Tarot can be a powerful mirror for our shadows (which hold the seeds of our power) and a transformative visualization for feeling into the space of our deepest desires. 

Every sexual impulse you have is perfect (as long as no harm is done)

We will use the Tarot to explore radical and enthusiastic consent, betrayal, jealousy, pleasure, masturbation, BDSM and other kinks, monogamy and non-monogamy, childhood influences, societal paradigms, religious influence, gender and sexual fluidity, the duality of masculinity and femininity (and other ways of describing those constructs), and more. 

This workshop is open to folks of all gender identification and sexuality (even asexuality, your desires are divine, too.)

Trigger warning: sexual assault

As many of us can attest, sexual assault is unfortunately very common and may come up. This is a safe space to discuss any difficulty with open hearts and deep support. You are under no obligation to share under any circumstances, but please check in with yourself to see if you are ready to hear about this in a group setting.

Exchange: $40

Yoga for the Sacral Chakra @ Three Jewels

Yoga for the Sacral Chakra @ Three Jewels

This workshop explores the relationship between the movement, strength, and mobility around the pelvis and the energetic emotional connection to sensuality and creativity. Energetically, this relates in a big way to the shadow of the unconscious. In a society, that both obsesses over and ignores this sacred hub of emotional connection, creation and elimination, how can we reconnect and bring a sense of flow on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels? How much do you know about your pelvic floor?

Through asana, breathing exercises, and a guided meditation we’ll prep the body and mind for free writing and a space to share. You may be surprised by what comes up and all that you have to say.
