About the Series
This is a sacred, safer container in which non-binary and trans folx can explore spiritual themes that help us to heal and reconcile the cultural-social-political impact of living as non-binary and trans persons in this world. This is an opportunity to reclaim our sacred space.

We will be creating ritual to explore our individual and communal magic together. Each month we will open circle by calling in sacred space, building an altar, and feeding our spirits and transcestors together.

Rune Lore: A Journey Thru The Runes | Two Fridays/Month | 7pm-9pm
The runes are ancient teachers who stand with perennial power and wisdom. As symbols of fate-power and magic, we can enter into them as a journey toward opening and expanding our hearts, minds, and spirits; as well as engage with them to draw practical wisdom and power through day-to-day life.  2019 Dates: 8/16, 8/23, 9/6, 9/27, 10/11, 10/25, 11/8, 11/22, 12/13, 12/27; (continues into 2020-) 1/10/20, 1/24/20 and 2/7/20.  In this series with Espen of Tending The Mystery, we will learn about the runes in an intuitive and relational way, knowing that everyone will have a different and equally potent way to engage with each rune. Together, we will cultivate curiosity and comfort around these symbols, as well a deep and healing relationship with these beings whose true meanings have been obfuscated by lack of engagement, misuse, and trauma. Registration:  $10-$40 sliding scale per class as you are able to afford.  You can find a full class description on our Facebook event page.  While the work is best taken as a series because the runes build on one another in a cohesive story, drop-ins are also always welcome!  Send any inquires to espen@tendingthemystery.com.
