Lost & Found …A highly interactive 9-week workshop that begins Monday, March 18, 6—8 pm
Sometimes in life, something falls apart and we lose our way, leaving us empty and without direction. This is usually the catalyst to walking away from what is no longer serving us and moving towards rebuilding our lives with new meaning. These are the stories that come alive in Lost and Found, a highly interactive 9-week workshop that begins Monday, March 18. Through personal and collective exploration, improvisation and writing, participants will co-create an interweaving of stories and movements about getting lost and finding their way back. At the end of 9 weeks, participants will present a collectively-designed community performance on Sunday, May 19, 2019. To register go to www. eventbrite.com/e/story-choreography-projects-lost-and-found-tickets-54627183376?aff=ebdssbdestsearch. The cost is $189; however, participants may attend a sample first session for $15. All experience levels and body types welcome.

Community Grief Circle
…Sunday, March 24, 6—10 pm
Unexpressed grief can be the source of stress, illness and disease while the process of grieving can bring balance to the body and create space for joy to re- colonize the heart. We will create a safe and powerful container together to share in sacred witnessing, body awareness, heart-opening music and emotional release. Please bring a water bottle, cushions for sitting, pictures of people/things you have lost and anything you wish to add to an ancestor altar. Please arrive on time as we will close the doors when we begin. The Circle will be facilitated by Josh Fox who is a grief-tender in his private practice and who has offered community healing circles for over eight years. The admission donation is on a sliding scale of $30 to $60 at the door, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Vespers with Jay Joslin is moving to a new time for the Spring…2nd and 4th Wednesdays from 5:30 to 6:15 pm starting March 27th.
