New Moon Women's Ceremony

Tuesday January 16th, 8:15-10pm, Suggested donation $15, Sliding scale-$0-$20

The new moon is a time of reflection.. Of going inward and looking deep within at what it is you would like to create.  Truly feeling into it as if it is already happening.  It is an opportunity to sit with feelings of uncertainty, rather than rushing from one thing to the next.  I would love for you to join me and dive into this New Year by consciously creating your reality...for yourself..for all women...for the greater good of ALL.  

Lets come together in sacred circle to support one another as we dive deep into our subconscious minds. 

We will begin the evening with a guided chakra sound meditation, leading into a Shamanic Journey, and followed by intention setting/bath salt making. There will be sharing of your journey and intentions, if you feel compelled too, as we create our bath salts to immerse ourselves in on the next Full Moon. This is a safe place for the divine feminine to come and share with one another.  To be truly held and seen.  All that we share will remain in this sacred container.  

Step out of your shadow and step into the circle of women that will help you see your beauty and divine light.  We are all here for one another.  To share, to open ourselves to our deepest self, and to reflect and to listen to one another as we embark on this beautiful journey.

If you have never done a shamanic journey I will discuss with you before we start on what exactly that is.  I have posted a link at the bottom if you would like to have some insight on it before you come.  

Please bring a yoga mat or blanket, a journal, and your favorite essential oil.  

Dress in whatever you feel the most comfortable.  Please limit your use of perfumes or sprays to respect any allergies that some may be experiencing.

Blessings to you dear sisters.  Hope to see you all soon.

Yours Truly,  Kelly Rae

Shadow Work & Self Healing with Hunter Moore

In this Beginners class Hunter will be discussing Shadow Work & Emotional Healing. We will go through the process of transmutation and how to apply in practice for self healing, connection and energy work leading to self mastery. Through the understanding of Shadow Work we can begin the path to liberation and inner peace and apply it in our daily lives. This work can be painful, it can be terrifying, it is designed to bring past traumas up that are not comfortable to re-live or experience. But it is the path to True Freedom. The more we are aware of our Shadow the more conscious we are as a living being. The awakening process is simply remembering what you are and the true power you posses. You are not your story, you are so much more.....

West African Drum Lessons with Chris Helvey

Saturday December 16th 3-5pm, $25 sliding scale

We will start at the beginning and learn two traditional rhythms. These drum classes are somewhat self-leveling in terms of student experience level. Beginners will get to learn the basics and more experienced players will learn the nuances of the rhythm. A few djembes will be available for rent.  First come first server. What we will learn:

  • Tradition West African Beats
  • Playing tips
  • Woman friendly (No egos here)
  • Fun and supportive
  • Beginners welcome
  • Recorded for practicing

Chris has been a drummer since the age of eight. Around twenty years ago, he was intrigued by the Djembe as an instrument and upon discovering the music it supported, came an "Aha!" about rhythm. What followed became a deep learning experience of West African rhythm, along with following the influences it has had on western music. He has traveled to Guinea, West Africa to learn from the source, and has studied with many masters both African and American. His teachers have been Mamady Keita (Conakry,) Famadou Konate' (Conakry,) Fadouba Oulare (Faranah,) Ryan Edwards (Boston,) Michael Taylor (Chicago,) Michael Markus (New York,) and Bruce Langhorn (Los Angeles,) among others.

Chris also plays guitar, congas, and anything that makes a sound. African music runs in his blood even while playing slack-key guitar. He often says that the influence of African music in his his own life and music style is like the egg in a cake. You can't separate them anymore.
