A little about Moondays:

For many of us, we experience the transitions of womanhood in a less than positive light.  Western women seldom have a place to go where they can exclusively be with other women to relax, nurture themselves and each other, be reflective and get pampered and fed.  Women have been discouraged to allow time to honor their feminine cycles. For example, we don’t even have a rite of passage when our daughters experience their first moons, which is a significant and pivotal time in her life.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a place to hold a small celebration honoring this enormous life transition? I believe reversing this negative perception around the menstrual cycle and stages of womanhood will be extremely empowering.  Moondays will be an agent for social change – transforming the norm.

Proceeds from this event will help to establish a permanent, brick and mortar Moondays Red Tent.

Date: Saturday, July 29, 2017

Time: 12:00pm – 4:00pm

Cost: Pre-registration $10, day-of $15

An incubator for exploring deeper connection through co-created movement

Join us for monthly nights of movement education, dancing, and exceptional music in this nurturing connective space. While the common language shares the framework of traditional social dance, creative expression, authentic connection and play take precedence over form! We believe stronger communities form where life is celebrated in music and dance with one another and see dance as a language with the power to bridge interpersonal and cultural divisions.

Our intention is to provide:
*A welcoming, inclusive environment that feels safe and judgment-free
*A gateway into the partner dance world and creative expression
*A nexus for community and authentic connection

Each event includes an ALL LEVELS class that supports up-leveling dance connection and skills, and three hours of dancing, with occasional cutting-edge LIVE musical acts.

We have. Come join us.

Red Tents are for all women. We honor our monthly cycles as well as the cycles and stages of women’s lives — maiden, matron and crone.

Sri Lakshmi: Live Your Dharma with Abundance & Integrity

with Chameli Ardagh

Friday, October 06 @ 6:00pm - 8:30pm

Three-Day Workshop:

Friday, October 6, 2017 ~ 6:00pm – 8:30pm
Saturday, October 7, 2017 ~ 9:30am – 6:00pm
Sunday, October 8, 2017 ~ 9:30am – 4:00pm


Sri Lakshmi is the Goddess of abundance, beauty and wealth. She is the one who removes any idea of separation between our spirituality and our so-called ordinary life. She illuminates and liberates us from our limiting beliefs and unconscious loyalty to lack, and shows us how we can live the infinite abundance of our spiritual awakening in an embodied and practical way; how we can put our unique mark of beauty onto the world.

Lakshmi’s four arms are:
Dharma (right living)
Artha (genuine wealth)
Kama (sensuality, desire, love)
Moksha (ultimate liberation)

These arms give us a powerful blueprint of how our material life, relationships and our longing to contribute are not in any way separate from our enlightenment. In Lakshmi’s realm, you connect with a more spacious and abundant dimension of yourself — your own luminous presence — and your source of motivation for everything you do in life changes from one of lack to one of overflow.

Lakshmi radically expands our vision of how abundantly we can live, give and receive. As a serious spiritual practitioner you may sometimes feel that beauty, pleasure and sensuality are somehow optional and even frivolous luxuries, “if there is time.” In our practice with Lakshmi, we use pleasure as a pathway to Presence. Our senses open us, tickle us, nourish us. Music, colors, tastes, art, poetry and beauty bring us into alignment with the essential nature of who we are. Lakshmi mirrors to us a radically inclusive and embodied spirituality, the freedom of our luminous presence, always right here, in the moment, fresh and impossible to grasp and explain with the mind.

You can only be it in moment-to-moment, open surrender.

About the Practice
*First of all, we go deep. We don’t sit around and only “talk about it”; we’re all about direct experience. This is a highly experiential path; a lot of the practices are interactive and include movement, expression and also respectful touch. There will be talks and Q&A with Chameli, as well as Women’s Temple practices.
*The basis for all spiritual exploration in the Shakti tradition is the insight that that which we are longing for is who we already are. Thus our practice is not toward a goal of attainment in the future; it is a process of melting, of unraveling the wisdom and beauty already inherent in each woman.

Who is this retreat for?
*In order to benefit from this retreat, you need to come prepared to dive fully into the practices, and it is best if you have a basic understanding of feminine/embodied spiritual practice.
*Although there are plenty of breaks to rest and integrate, the Shakti-based embodiment practices can open stronger currents of energy in the body than we are used to.
*We do not spend much time discussing awakening in theoretical matters; we go deep into direct experience through practice.
*These are not therapeutic programs. If you are in any way feeling unstable psychologically or are going through a severe crisis, we ask you to not join this event.
*One of our core practices involves respectful touch. Your boundaries will of course always be respected, but if you feel a strong resistance to touch, this retreat is probably not for you. We practice respectful touch a lot in our circle to bring presence into our bodies and cultivate the capacity to allow more life energy to flow through us.

Date & Times:
Friday, October 6, 2017 ~ 6:00pm – 8:30pm
Saturday, October 7, 2017 ~ 9:30am – 6:00pm
Sunday, October 8, 2017 ~ 9:30am – 4:00pm

Cost:
Early bird price if paid by August 1st: $297
Full price: $397
If you need to cancel for any reason, we retain $75 as an administrative fee.
There will be no refunds starting 21 days before the retreat.
