Embracing the Radical Way to Self Love
This transmission is about the radical way to self-love and acceptance — looking at your shadow. Shadow work is a huge gateway to self-love in the teachings of the divine feminine. Here, we will look at what it means to look at the parts of yourself that you think are shameful, unworthy, unattractive, and find the gift there. In a lot of modern day spirituality, the “light” is often celebrated while the darkness is ignored. The divine feminine says that the darkness in you and in life is the place of rebirth, the womb-space of healing. Are you ready?

Women’s Clothing Swapwith Jacqueline Rubinstein
Saturday, September 21 @ 7:30pm - 9:00pm
Join us at SomaSpace for an evening of fun at our women’s clothing swap! Release what is not serving you anymore and bring in new energy with the upcoming season and with a renewed wardrobe! Bring a bag of clothes that you’re ready to retire for someone to reuse with new life and find a new wardrobe in return!
Doors will open at 7:15pm, and there will be an opening circle at 7:30pm. Ground rules will be shared and intentions will be set.
Swapping will begin after the opening circle. If you arrive after 7:30pm, you will be held in the front entranceway for a second circle where ground rules will be shared, and then you will be able to enter the swap. And so on until everyone knows the new expectations around not hoarding and jumping on top of every single thing around you.
Open our hearts and share in the fun! We gather in the spirit of generosity and abundance. To this end, here are our house rules for the swap:
1. Once you have picked up a dozen things at most, try them on and put back what you don’t want.
2. Do not hoard clothes. Be selective and take only what you truly want.
3. Pass along things that you think will fit better on other women.
4. Interact with the other swappers. Be mindful that your comments are not derogatory, dismissive, or put-downs in any way or could be misconstrued as hurtful or harmful in any way.
5. Relax, take a deep breath, and have fun!
This event is So. Much. Goodness! We will be trading clothes, accessories, shoes and jewelry, hanging out, and building community around grown-up dress-up time!
Women of all sizes, all ages, all backgrounds welcome. Trans-women welcome. Maternity, kids, and baby clothes welcome.
Please bring your own bags to carry your new threads home in.
All leftover clothes will be donated to Dress for Success Oregon, an awesome non-profit that offers professional attire and coaching for job interviews for women. They use non-dressy clothes for a tag sale fundraiser, too!

A Re-introduction to Sensualitywith Audrey Steele
Saturday, October 12 @ 12:00pm - 5:00pm
Sunday, October 13 @ 11:00am – 4:00pm
A Sensual Movement Workshop
If we wish to find more freedom in our sensuality, it is imperative that we define it on our own terms, rather than the limiting ways we have likely adopted.
Join us in an immersive, movement based journey, exploring our sensuality.
Using movement as the primary vehicle of exploration, as well as; experiential exercises, journaling, discussion and more, we will begin to relate to our sensuality in a new way. We will develop a more empowered understanding of it, and develop more freedom in our unique expression of it.
This class is an introductory level class. It is perfect for any woman interested in exploring:
~ Authentic sensual movement
~ Relationship with the body
~ Relationship with the self and others
~ The implications of the cultural constructs around our sexuality in general
Space is limited register today!
Dates and Times:
Saturday, October 12, 2019 ~ 12:00pm – 5:00pm
Sunday, October 13, 2019 ~ 11:00am – 4:00pm

Consent Workshop and Cuddle Partywith Maryam Brown
Sunday, October 20 @ 2:30pm - 6:00pm
Though touch is natural, the skills that make it welcome and enjoyable have to be learned: skills of communication, boundaries, asking for what you want, and saying ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ with clarity and kindness. Consent Workshop & Cuddle Party™ is a 3.5-hour communication workshop that focuses on personal boundaries and touch, in which participants have an opportunity to practice these skills through platonic touch and cuddling (or not). It’s a great opportunity to practice asking for what you want, saying no to what you don’t want and meeting new people. The skills you learn at Cuddle Party translate into every day life, right from the start. When boundaries and consent are clear, every relationship is easier.
Cuddle Party is a strictly non-sexual event. Cuddle Parties – as distinct from non-affiliated group cuddles – are led by trained and certified Facilitators. (Maryam is a facilitator-in-training.) The Facilitator’s job is to guide you into those skills gently and easily, in a fun, safe and light hearted way. We welcome you and create an atmosphere of respect, and remain available for questions and support.
At a Cuddle Party you can gain:
~ Clarity and confidence
~ Boundary and communication skills
~ Comfort, support and encouragement
~ The secrets to welcome, relaxed, non-sexual touch
What to bring:
~ Please wear comfy clothes (PJs are just fine!)
~ You are invited to bring snacks or non-alcoholic beverages to share with the group (optional).
What to expect:
~ Doors open at 2:30pm and close at 3:00pm. There is no admittance after 3:00pm.
~ At 3:00pm there will be a welcome circle which orients guests to the rules of cuddle party and has exercises to help practice the rules.
~ Following the welcome circle are a few hours for free-style cuddling, eating snacks, or just hanging out.
~ The event ends with a short closing circle.
