Past Events

Winter Solstice Celebration – Dec 2021

This virtual event, held on the evening of the winter solstice provided a brief history of solstice and yule-inspired mid-winter festivals. In keeping with this tradition, we used Qigong practices to move our bodies while facing the 4 compass points, then we meditated upon the elements of earth, fire, water and air.

We also shared art with each other and ended by constructing yule logs, which held our respective paper notes describing behaviors and activities that no longer serve us, making space for new aspirations for the coming year.

Mindfulness Arts Festival – Fall 2021

This virtual event, held on August 26, 2021 brought together 10 artists who explored mindfulness in very different ways.

More than 40 people registered for this Pay What You Can event. Audience participation yielded several amazing poems, which will be showcased on our site in the near future.
