Saturday Feb 18: 10-3 Our House of Sacred Stories: Body and Soul $49.00
"When did you last dance? When did you last sing? When did you last tell your story?" Indigenous elder. The Sacred shows up in many forms. Sometimes we can articulate what we know, sometimes not. Are you ready to honor the holy as it is revealed in body, mind, heart, and spirit? To see Spirit in others? To make an offering of your part of the story? In this Spirithouse there is room for faith and no faith, the simple and extraordinary, the recognizable and mysterious, the contemplative and flamboyant, the funny and sad. Spend a few hours playing with spirit and listening in on the sacred messages among us..

Saturday Night 6:30-8:30 Ancestor Ritual: Pine Branch Labyrinth to Honor Ancestors, known and unknown $20.00.
The Tree of Life is seen world wide as a symbol of life and generational connection. The human body mirrors its roots, limbs, trunk and leaves. In a ceremony of music, drumming, song and movement and candle light you are invited to bring branches from the tree, an ancestral object for the altar, as you take time to write ancestral names on leaves provided at the ceremony and move them to the heart of the Tree. Tea and conversation to follow. .

Sunday Feb 19, 10 - 1pm A Ceremony of Wings: Light hearted initiation "hoopla" ritual to affirm anything that has become easier. 25.00
You crossed the desert, danced backwards, snuck by the alligators, dived to the bottom for treasure. You played and survived. You surrendered. You fought. You lost and won. You may have a certificate. But, have you received your wings? Wings are granted by Spirit and loving community when you advance from one season to another. Wings are creative power multiplied by collective witness. Wings offer flight, freedom, and new views. Many have no wings for lack of community witness, the choice to remain discreet, or the fact that as you age social ceremonies grow fewer. Is there something you need to ceremonialize? Or are you called to be a witness to others? Come, Play, and Celebrate.

***Doors will open 30 minutes before each event. Please show up 15 – 30 minutes in advance. You will need to enter thru the Stage Door at 3rd Ave and 25th street. An InterPlay guide will take you to the space we will meet (this is a security building).

Cost: $110 advanced discounted registration for all events (by Feb. 15), or per event pricing
