Invitation to Ritual

Molina Speaks and Sheree "lovemestiza" Brown extend an Invitation to Ritual on Saturday, March 31st. The creative duo takes over the McNichols Civic Center building for an evening of dance, muse, and creativity. Join them in celebration of the lovemestiza book launch, and the world premiere of the film, ROOT

Sheree is a writer, herbalist, and Afrofuturist, who is independently publishing her first book of poetic prose. The book’s title, lovemestiza, is an ode to her mixed ancestry, and to the intersection of her identities as a woman, human, cultural, and spiritual being. 

Molina Speaks is an all-around artist, poet, musician and human bridge. The 2017 Westword Mastermind is set to premiere his first full-length feature film, ROOT. The dreamscape film was inspired by the creation of an album by the same name. Additional details for both projects are forthcoming. 

Mark your calendars with your symbols of culture and inspiration. Tickets are on sale now.

Ancestral Herbalism: Wildcrafting//Harvesting & The Anatomy of Self-Care

In our first class of July, we will be studying parts of the anatomy, as well as learning about wildcrafting & harvesting techniques and best practices. We will also be breaking down self-care practices for the summer, and ways to cope with the heat of sun and elemental fire in our society.

***Please note: there will be two classes this month (and every month from here on out). 

July dates: Wednesday, July 13th
& Sunday, July 31st from 9am-1pm

The first class will be just that, a class, an overview of topics, etc. The second class of the month will be more of a hands-on practicum that will involve us actually harvesting and making medicinas. Please attend both to receive the maximum learning experience :)

We are asking for a $15 donation for each class. (A $30 investment per month). Thank you for investing in your communidad!
