Plant Salon: A Monthly Meet Up
A Once Monthly Gathering Facilitated by
@ The Cunning Crow Teaching Temple
This monthly meet up seeks to aid those interested in gaining deeper relationship with plants. We will be hosting 1-3 individual plants each evening (depending on how time unfolds), and exploring how we might connect with these unique beings in various ways - including observation of their physical forms, such as through sight, touch, taste, but also through less readily tangible means, such as through trance and ritual.
Though this is a monthly meet up, folx are welcome to join at any point throughout the year! Additionally, folx need not have any specific cultivated skill-set--magical, witchcraft, herbalism or otherwise--to participate. Please do RSVP via email if you plan to attend a class to ensure we have supplies ready for you. You can RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Culture Shift: A Monthly Empowerment of Community Resilience | 4.22.19 | 6:30pm-9:30pm
Join Jazz GoldmAn with occasional guest facilitators in an experimental playground of unlearning and relearning, building resilience, and relating to each other in a liberated way.

Expect relationship building and skill sharing around anti-oppression and resilience. Expect mindfulness and light embodied movement.

Community Queerituality - "Rooting Together in Community" | 5.1.19 | 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. This May session will focus on community. Community both enriches and challenges us on the spiritual path. Many of us struggle to practice being in community, both due to painful experiences and the disruptive influences of contemporary capitalism. Socioeconomic pressures keeps us from being firmly rooted to one place or one community, encouraging us to pursue individual autonomy at the cost of belonging and interdependence. Yet we are creatures who deeply need belonging with our autonomy. Together we will explore personal and spiritual practices to help cultivate a practice of community, giving and receiving connection and support, and building the resilient future that will outgrow the crumbling structures of the past. Community Queerituality is a space available to all of our open-hearted, magically-minded LGBTQ+ community. We 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: Donations of $5-$20 are gladly accepted and encouraged to cover the cost of space rental. No one turned away for lack of funds. Check out the Facebook event page for more information.
New Moon Community Esbat | 5.4.19 | 7pm-9pm
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.
