Sound Intentions Circle: Un-Eclipsing the Collective Heart

FACILITATED BY: Isabel Mareş
INVESTMENT: $10 - $20 Sliding Scale

Sound Intentions Circle is a radically affirming space where seekers of community - artists, activists, advocates, storytellers - come together. 

February 15th is a New Moon, a Partial Solar Eclipse, and the day after the most commercially romanticized day of the year - Valentine's Day. The night after the Moon renews Herself, we look inward  to our hearts to awaken & un-eclipse the COLLECTIVE heart. What wants and needs are hidden from our view? What do we both individually and collectively need? What does sustainable love look like? 

Together we will plant seeds - our intentions - for a love that goes through and beyond ourselves, into collective love and sustainability. The seeds we plant on a New Moon/Solar Eclipse in February will rise to greet us just in time for the coming of Spring. Love is powerful investment just as much as it is the great gift. 

Around rose petals and candles' flames, we will embark on a ritual sound journey, combining mindfulness meditation and chanting, collective storytelling, improvisational poetry and song. All for the un-eclipsing of love.
