We’re continuing the theme of THRESHOLDS this month, recognizing this time of transition and transformation: racial, environmental, economic, cultural, spiritual. How to leave behind old ways and enter into new ones? How to be with the uncomfortable space of not-yet, the messy middle? Together we’ll engage imagination, spirit, and real-life skills for threshold times.
Writing, Reflection, and
Really Good Beverages
Sunday, March 7, 2:00 – 4:00 pm
Join us for 2 hours of writing from imagination-tickling prompts on thresholds & transitions with Hannah Merrill, Curator of Writing.
Crafting: build a nest/prepare for flight
Sunday, March 14, 7:00pm – 9pm Pacific
Nests are places of transition—where creatures emerge from their embryos into the world, where they launch out from a place of safety into their next chapter of life’s adventure. Join us to craft a “nest” from simple items found around your home. As we craft, we’ll reflect on the thresholds we are leaving behind and taking flight into. Our leader Molly Ebert says, “Nests of all sorts are built for the sole purpose of being left. The old world is worn away. Conditions have reached the threshold where we know we must go out.”
Seasons of Earth:
Spring seeds and Autumn seeds
Sunday, March 21, 7:00pm – 9pm Pacific
In this equinox season, as the northern hemisphere tilts toward the sun, we will consider seeds: both the annuals that sprout every spring and the ones that take years to grow. As is true in the earth, it’s true in our lives. Let’s talk together about what’s germinating in ourselves and in the world.
