Monday Oct 28th, 7-9pm Join Katy Pavlis and Vanessa Ainslie for an opportunity to connect deeply with the moon and its cycles during this ceremony on or around the new moon each month. Discover how to access the gifts of transformation available to you through aligning your life and intention with the movements of the lunar cycles and seasons. Each season will build thematically with a larger ritual and healing held on each Equinox and Solstice. While self care is a vital act for holistic health and wellness, it's not enough to do it alone. This intentional space for community is held within a loving container of sovereignty, body positivity, compassion and inclusivity. All are welcome.
Each circle will include:
Connection with the moon and its energy
Sound journey and healing
Clarify and symbolically set your intentions of transformation and growth for the upcoming lunar month
Participation in an inclusive community of like minded individuals

What this means is that I can perceive information about people, places, and situations through a deeply felt sense of knowing, and through images and words that appear in my mind’s eyes and ears. It is very similar to recalling a scene from a movie, or waking up with a song stuck in your head, only the images and sounds I am perceiving accurately relate to the outer world and its events. "

"Learning to name and acknowledge my own lineages has been an important part of my healing process. My practice is rooted in exploring the traditional land based practices of my ancestors so that I may access my own spirituality in right relationship to Spirit and Land. I am a 4th generation immigrant from Greece, both Sephardic Jew (from the Middle East and Mediterranean areas ) and Ashkenazi Jew (from Poland, Russia, Hungary, and Lithuania), German, Blackfoot Indian, and Cherokee Indian.
