Come celebrate the full moon like never before! Your body will be tantalized by sacred African rhythms and activated through playful movement. Your soul will be nourished by the healing sounds and channeled wisdom, and you will claim what is next in your life through a manifestation exercise. These events will raise your vibration, and point of attraction in your life! They are a place to let go, have fun and connect with community in a heart space.  Grab your tickets while they last!

Full moons are a time when emotions surface to clear. This moon exerts a stronger pull on the waters of the Earth, and raises the tides. We are mostly water, and in many Native American traditions the water is associated with the emotional body. So the full moon is exerting a stronger pull on our emotional body, bringing what needs to clear to surface.

So come heal with us! Read more about "How the moon effects you + what you can do about it" here.



The Harvest Moon was named by many Native American tribes because it is the moon that falls closest to the Fall Equinox: a day of equal sun and dark. The harvest moon provides plenty of light needed to harvest the crops! It marks the transition into the fall season.

Friday Night Drummers
