New Moon Community Esbat | 11.4.18 | 7pm-9pm (CANCELLED)
The cycles of the moon provide a model for the cyclical and dynamic energy of life. The energy of the Dark Moon, powerful and mysterious, is a reminder that space should always be created for maturation and growth. In this monthly offering, we will hold each other in community as we take this time of introspection to gather the energy of new beginnings and sow the seeds of change. Registration: $10-$30 sliding scale (no one turned away for lack of funds), payment is due at the door.
Community Meditation | 11.5.18 & 11.21.18 | 7pm-9pm
Lead by Zen Buddhist Andrew Simonetti, this silent group meditation is an opportunity to encourage growth and insight into your own practice and connect intimately with the present moment with the support of community. Open to everyone of all spiritual faiths, meditation backgrounds, and experience. First-time or beginner meditators strongly encouraged! This will be a biweekly class held at the Cunning Crow Teaching Temple. Registration: Suggested donation of $5 to help with cost of space. No one turned away for lack of funds.
Community Queerituality - "Accessing Our Intuition" | 11.7.18 | 7pm-9pm
Join the Fellowship of the Phoenix - Seattle and The Cunning Crow Apothecary for a once-monthly meeting focused on supporting our unique spiritual and community needs. In this gathering we'll discuss how queer people often encounter tension between what we intuitively sense about ourselves and who we're told we are. Depending on how we experience and navigate these tensions, we may become highly attuned to our intuition, or we may experience blocks and doubts that undermine intuition. For the first hour, we'll talk about psychic skills and intuition. Please bring a deck of playing cards, tarot cards, runes, ogham sticks or other divination supplies for the second hour. We will engage in a practice of seeking divination for the upcoming year, using the energies of this time in which it is said the veil between worlds is thin. This space is available to all of our open-hearted, magically-minded LGBTQ+ community and explicitly invite members of marginalized populations to join the work and contribute to a diversity of thought: this includes, but is not limited to queer, trans, non-binary, neurodivergent, disabled, & BIPOC folx. Registration: Free to attend. Donations are gladly accepted and encouraged to cover the cost of space rental.
A Witch's Herbal, Part 3 | 11.9.18 | 7pm-9pm (CANCELLED)
Part of walking the path of the witch involves forming relationships with plants as both healers and poisoners, bringers of blessing and bane. The poison plants of old have always been powerful allies and guides in the work of the witch, seer, mystic and healer, offering wisdom about honoring boundaries and fear, the birth-death-rebirth cycle of life, the ways of the spirit world, and more. Time in class will be spent in discussion and lecture. Direct interaction with the spirits of the plants is one of the best ways to build relationship with poisonous plants in particular, and this will be our focus or the evening. Please bring a journal and an offering for the altar. Registration: $30 per class, although no one turned away for lack of funds. RSVP via firstname.lastname@example.org and register here.
Herbal Anti-Virals: Staying in Healthy Relationship | 11.16.18 | 7pm-9pm
Our technological culture holds serious misconceptions about the nature of viruses. Becoming informed and clearing up these misconceptions will empower us in the face of an increasing threat of global viral epidemics. The goal of this discussion and lecture with Emma Day is not to incite fear, but instead face reality with a steady gaze with the aim of finding ways to stay healthy. We will be focusing on herbal medicines for their elegance and effectiveness as potent anti-viral remedies. Please bring a journal for notes. Registration: Cost is $30, although no one turned away for lack of funds. RSVP to Emma via email@example.com and register here.
