Inner Child Playshop
Maria Montessori once said “play is the work of the child”. In our formative years, we greet life with curiosity and exploration.
We construct our environment, only to deconstruct, reconstruct and reinvent the world around us with beaming imaginations and willing hearts.
Human beings innately desire exactness, order, orientation, repetition, self-perfection… yet the child approaches these desires through play.
Somewhere along the way, we lose this sense of play. Let’s tap into it once more, and remember how to prioritize and utilize play as a way of being.

Nutritional Support for Women on Birth Control
Birth control affects a woman's nutritional balance, which in turn affects her mental and emotional balance. Nutritional implications are rarely even considered or discussed when women get on birth control, much less the sociological implications of so many women acquiring nutrient deficiencies because of the birth control they are on.
The purpose of this course is to examine the impacts that birth control has on a woman's nutritional status and the nutrient dynamics that need to be kept in mind in order to make a more informed decision about which birth control to use, as well as how to maintain nutritional balance while on birth control. With more in-depth knowledge of the impacts birth control has on our bodies, we as fertile women can be empowered to make choices that truly support our whole being.

Reclaiming our images: techniques for a better relationship with cameras
In this hand-on workshop, we’ll discuss our relationship with being photographed, and learn techniques for capturing eachother and ourselves in our most authentic, beautiful form. In our daily lives, we are fed a steady stream of instruction around how we are supposed to look in photos and video. This can have very real ramifications on how we think about physical bodies, and the way that we carry ourselves in a world that is obsessed with documenting. The internet is full of hacks - from filters to poses - for looking the way we think people want us to. We're going to throw that all out the window. In my decades behind and in front of the camera, I’ve found that the best photos happen when we truly see a person, with loving kindness and curiosity - and likewise, the best way to look amazing in your photos is to show up as your most honest, relaxed, authentic self. I’ll share an intentional, ritualized approach to documenting that will change the way that you and your subjects/self/friends relate to your cameras. We’ll then pair up to photograph each other, and I will check in with each group to offer 1-1 advice.All skill levels welcome, please bring your own camera (a cell phone is fine!)

Shakti and the power of Desire: Reclaiming Your Divine Creative Spirit
This is an interactive experience weaving together mythic story, guided meditation and bija mantra vocalization, supported by the entrancing drone of live tamboura. We will explore the "demonization" of Desire by the existing hegemony and lean in to the positive, creative impulses that Desire incites. Then we will drop into a storytelling/guided meditation with vocalizations of bija (seed) mantras and matrikas (the Sanskrit vowel sounds that are said to have been the germinal vibrations of creation) to embed the felt knowing of the archetypal truths transmitted. Finally, we will receive, in our deepened state of conscious awareness, the blessing of the raaga Bhairavi (the raaga of the Goddess) and an invocation to Maa Sharadaa, who is the mysterious, dark aspect of Saraswati.
Healing the Mother Wound Drum Ceremony
Within each and everyone of us, lies inherited patterns, belief systems and energies that have been subconsciously passed down to us from our maternal line. Unhealed mother wounding can often look like carrying out behaviors of self-sabotage, sacrificing needs of self, jealousy and comparison, depression, distrusting the sacred feminine, and so much more. Because of our mother wounding, building and maintaining sisterhood connections can often be challenging. In this ceremony, we will gather to explore both individually and collectively how and where we have inherited wounds from our maternal lines that have prevented us from open-heartedly trusting and relating with the sacred feminine, both within ourselves and each other.

The Art of Boundaries
To live a life of fully activated authenticity that is sustainable and regenerative to our own systems and the webs that we are a part of, we need to know how to contain our energy and navigate the dynamic field of interpersonal (and inner-personal!) relationships with grace, clarity, skill, and confidence.

Luminoso - Movement Cleanse , and Morning Yoga
Luminoso translates to light & luminous in spanish, and lightness is exact what this movement practice is geared to evoke. We use an infusion of guided somatic mindfulness practices, parts work, yoga, ecstatic dance, and breath set to a wave of rhythms and music. Through these waves we evoke, mobilize, and cleanse the energy of the elements - earth, water, fire & air - and the somatic or emotional experiences that we may encounter with each one. This practice is designed to connect us with our inner knowing and power, which allows us to tap into deeper states or "sticky" places - moving that which may be held and no longer needed. This practice is lightly guided, with periods of free movement and dance that is expressed through your unique individual journey (i.e - not partnered). Move, Dance, Cleanse, Connect.
