Recently, our thriving counter-culture communities have been rocked by allegations of sexual assault and other forms of boundary violations. In light of these allegations, we are called to the table to explore why and how this has happened within communities that value openness, freedom of expression, personal sovereignty, and connection. And--what we can do, as individuals and communities, to uplift and heal each other and our world? This series is designed as an offering to provide the building blocks for greater awareness and an empowered community response. In partnership with local non-profits and community educators, we will explore these issues with compassion, understanding, and a commitment to building safer containers for our shared growth and evolution. This is an opportunity for us to grow as a community. We gather to learn, to challenge, and to consider: How do we ask for the kind of healthy intimacy we yearn for, and define our boundaries with others? How do we become the guardians of our spaces, so we can lovingly and swiftly respond when boundary violations happen? How can we better hold our sisters and brothers who have been violated, and call transgressors back into integrity? Let’s come together to find positive ways of addressing these challenges from the root! Together, we will be the change we wish to see, and step into a new era of connectivity, freedom, accountability, and support. ~*~ This event will continually be updated with more information so please stay tuned ~*~ $10 suggested donation, no one turned away for lack of funds.

"Singing together to nourish the soul, and re-enchant the world with song." Singing in a circle brings us home. Songs of heart, life, earth, spirit, e.g. traditional Africa, words from Rumi, evocative of Native American roots. $5 - $10 at the door. No one turned away due to lack of funds, if there's space available. PLEASE forward this invite to your friends! An evening of easily-learned songs that are almost like chants - with meaningful words (e.g. Rumi poetry), provocative rhythms and delicious harmonies. Laurence says: "Part of my mission is to re-acquaint people with their birthright and natural ability to make beautiful and meaningful sound together. Group singing is one of the most ancient and primal “technologies of belonging” that we humans have been using since our earliest times. When we make joyous and passionate song together, it nourishes our souls and offers an enlivening gift back to the natural world. When such an exchange is genuinely made, and the song finds its natural ending, often there is a sweet, lively silence in which we simply stand and hold the “enchantment,” the sense of deep and genuine communion." Laurence Cole and Aimee Ringle, two members of the dynamic vocal trio "Songweavers" share a passion for music that connects, honors and heals the relationship between the human and the Divine. With vast and varied collective backgrounds in music, rhythm, anthropology, poetry, history, and deep ecology, Aimee and Laurence gather people to sing and be still together. The collective soul is a food for the Divine. It'll be an evening of tag-team performance, song leading, storytelling, and vibe raising! Come co-create beauty that feeds us all.
