Astro-Energy Tune-Up for the New Moon

Sunday, September 29th | 3-5 pm | $40

Do you ever get the sense that you’re affected by the moon and the movements of the planets and want to learn more about what’s going on? Or do you already follow astrology and want to learn more about how to work with the energy? Learning astrology can have a profound impact on a person’s self-knowledge, sense of direction and overall health. By learning how to work with its energy, we have the opportunity raise our consciousness and experience a distinct sense of personal freedom and broader collective awareness.


In this monthly tune-up series, participants will be supported in aligning with the astrological energies of the upcoming lunar month. We will meet in a sharing circle, explore the astrological weather report, and learn energy and movement** tools tuned into the specific energies of the upcoming cycle. We will close our time by setting new moon intentions in a sacred container.


This workshop is led by astrologer, tarot reader, and certified yoga instructor Andrea Grace  and astrologer, oral historian, and energy healer Erica Shoshana Rivers.


**All movement will be gentle and accessible to all body types and abilities.

Uploading the New Earth

Uploading the New Earth: Body as Channel w/ Portia Richardson

Saturday, October 12th | 6-9 pm | $35-Full Exchange or $20 -Pay it Forward Exchange

What does this title suggest? A lot of spiritual seekers nowadays want to learn how to hone the ability to channel healing energy into this earthly plane and bring balance to our collective system. This is wonderful! And needed! However in order to do this we must each become embodied.


Our bodies are containers that transmit energetic data. We must heal our colonialist bypass of the body – because it is only through the body that we are able to access the subtle realms of our collective consciousness and upload new patterns into our physical reality and reprogram our biology. When we heal our relationship with our bodies we heal our relationship with the earth. The earth speaks to us through the body, because the body is of the earth. And we must listen – now more than ever!


Are you in your body? Can you feel your body? Do you listen to your body speak? What does your body want and need?


In this offering we will learn to harness our individual embodied experience as a portal – through which we are able to transmit multidimensional data and upload the emergent patterns needed to support harmony within our collective system. We will engage in dynamic group discussions to dive into the topics below and explore embodiment rituals to hone our somatic awareness. You will gain practical skills to heal your relationship with your body and feel supported within the larger web of life.


We will explore the intersections among:

*body-centered healing and somatic practices
*healing trauma – personal, communal, and ancestral
*consciousness and parapsychology research
*quantum physics and mysticism
*ritual work and magic practice
*sacred activism as it relates to the decolonization of body and earth justice


Wear comfortable clothes. You may want to bring an extra blanket or pillow – or anything that will support your body to relax. This class is open to humans – all identities and presentations.


*Please select which exchange level feels best to you. We suggest if you are financially stable and/or walk with privilege that you consider our Full Exchange ($35) level, which helps facilitate making this offering accessible to our wider community. If you are a BIPOC, non binary person, and/or someone who needs financial support, please feel free to enroll at our Pay It Forward ($17) exchange level. You are welcome to self-identify. No questions asked. All humans welcome.

Yoga + Acupuncture with Constellation Acupuncture

Sunday, October 13th | 2-4pm | $35 in advance or $40 at door

Yoga + Acupuncture is a 2-hour workshop that includes an introduction to one of the Five Elements of Chinese Medicine through:


  • gentle movement

  • a simple and powerful acupuncture treatment

  • meditation

  • acupressure and food therapies that you can take home and use when you need to call in the healing powers of the element in your daily life


The upcoming workshop will focus on the Metal Element – the element associated with autumn. In the Chinese medicine Five Element system, each element corresponds with a different season, taste, emotion, energy meridian and more. This first session will be nestled in the midst of its associated season, when the air gets crisp and Metal takes center stage. Metal represents a sword that cuts away that which is no longer necessary, leaving a refined essence in its place.  Metal also corresponds to the Lung and Large Intestine energy meridians, which, when working properly, help you set energetic boundaries and let go of what is no longer serving you.


Tatum Fjerstad will lead a gentle flow with an emphasis on twists and exhales. During your savasana/extended rest, Kim Christensen L.Ac. and Amy Kuresty L.Ac. will support your energetic and physical immune systems in a short, but powerful needle-assisted nap on your mat.


The exchange for this offering is $35 in advance and $40 at the door. No yoga or acupuncture experience is necessary and all levels are welcome. Bring your own mat and water bottle.

Deep Psoas Release w/ Marnie Bounds

Thursday, October 24th | 6-7:15 pm | $20 or FREE for members

Did you know that your psoas muscle is the “Muscle of the Soul”? It is a muscle deep within our abdominal cavity connected to the hips, low back, and core. It also has a important connection to our central nervous system, spine and our fight or flight response. That is why when we experience trauma or even everyday tension we often store that energy deep within the psoas. The result can lead to tightness all over the body, chronic pain and stored anxiety.   Taoist philosophy believes that a healthy psoas can awaken the spine and allow energy to flow freely through the bones, tissues, muscles and joints.  This free energy then grounds into the earth and rebounds through the body up to the cosmos. Therefore a healthy psoas is crucial not only for physical, but mental, emotional and spiritual health as well.  Deep Psoas Tension Release is a set of exercises created to fatigue the Posas and induce involuntary shaking and tremor of the muscle.  As a result, this practice can create a reset for the entire body.  The following are just some of the benefits reported from this practice.


– reduction of anxiety, anger, stress, tension and post trauma symptoms
– better, deeper sleep
– reduction of muscle and back pain
– increases mobility, energy levels and autonomy
– resolves bodies trauma patterns neurologically
– reduced anger and rage
– release of emotions from mild upset to severe anxiety
– balancing of the nervous system
– aid to healing of past injuries
– relief from chronic medical conditions
– helps recovery from addictions
– complements speech and other therapies
– improving of relationships, less conflicts
– increase of self-esteem and confidence
