INVESTMENT: $10 - $20 Sliding Scale
Sound Intentions Circle is a radically affirming space where seekers of community - artists, activists, advocates, storytellers - come together.
The eve of the Full Flower Moon in Sagittarius, we grant ourselves permission to b l o o m . How might we unlock the power within us to allow growth for our individual selves and our communities? Where in our lives must we say “no” or create firm boundaries in order to say “YES!” and untie ourselves and release our dreams?
Sometimes we need others’ voices to help us realize our own empowerment.
Join the circle for a ritual experience of b l o o m i n g under the Full Blossom Moon, combining mindfulness meditation, rhythms, chant, song, poetry, movement*, and communal storytelling.
Please bring your favorite journal and clothing that you will feel free to move in!

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!
