INVESTMENT: $10 - $20 Sliding Scale
Sound Intentions Circle is a radically affirming space where seekers of community - artists, activists, advocates, storytellers - come together.
There can be no revolution without evolution.
The second Full Blue Moon of this year resides in Libra - the sign of Balance and Justice. It will be another 19 years before we get two Blue Moons in a single year. Now is our moment. This March moon is all about shifting the paradigm, and doing so through what we find most familiar. We gather to update our collective notions of Justice and Balance under this moon of Renewal and Growth. We begin to make a shift, as the seasons do, through accepting what was, what is, and from there we play with the possibilities of what’s next. Through poetry and song, we hone in on our power, as individuals and members of larger communities.
Together we will embark on a ritual sound journey harmonizing mindfulness meditation, chanting, storytelling, improvisational poetry and song.
discover the power of collective & creative storytelling.
discover new ways to tell your story.
discover the sounds of our story.

What Is Sliding Scale?
We offer all of our community offerings and some private sessions by Sliding Scale.
We believe everyone is entitled to heal their wounds so they can thrive; we also believe that the wellness and healing practitioners deserve to make a living wage. In order to make this possible, we ask you to pay as much as you can, so those who might not be able to pay as much can still receive their healing session - this is the idea behind 'paying it forward'. We are all in this together, and we choose to do our best to take care of one another.
Thank you in advance!
