-Tuesday, April 25th, 6pm: Out Of The Broom Closet opens to Lunar Intentions!
We will gather to practice the setting a personal intention under the new moon! Witches and others have worked closely with the moon and its cycles for ages. At this gathering we will read and discuss current astrologers' takes on Wednesday's New Moon in Taurus, we will share our experience with working lunar intentions and connecting with the new moon, and we will delve into magical space to find our own lunar intentions!
This space is for everyone, seasoned magic makers and woo curious alike. Aligning with the lunar cycle and intentionally focusing on aspects of ourselves that are called forward under the moon's influence can be incredible enlightening and there is really no wrong way to do it!
The two main astrologers that are influencing our approach are Teri Starnes of Starsdance Astrology, http://www.starsdanceastrology.com/2017/04/follow-moon-april-11-2017-april-25.html and Chani Nicholas, http://chaninicholas.com/2017/04/new-moon-taurus-affirmation-horoscopes-week-april-24th/. Chani has a post with thoughts and insights for the new moon, which is not required but recommended reading!
Bring yourself, your friend, your journal and your willingness to let mystery mix with your path! In the darkness of the new moon we will find insight and connection! https://www.facebook.com/events/211661019323605/

Street Medic Training! (please read description // space limited & rsvp to reserve spot)
-Friday April 28th 6-8:30pm @ Louden Nelson Center, rm. #1 (1st evening not at SubRosa // other 2 days are at SubRosa)
-Saturday April 29th 9am-5pm @ SubRosa (703 Pacific Ave)
-Sunday April 30th 9am-5pm @ SubRosa (703 Pacific Ave)
This three day weekend training will help prepare you to act as a street medic, an increasingly necessary skill to offer to communities engaged in political resistance and struggle. We believe this work is crucial in conjunction with efforts towards collectivizing health and care resources. The training will be covering personal environmental safety and awareness, self and small group procedures for physical and mental trauma, and mass casualty situations. Please bring a lunch on weekend days, whatever personal medical or first aid kit you have, and some money ($15-35, NOTAFLOF) if possible to put towards supplies and use of space. The first evening at Louden Nelson will offer more of an orientation to the training, so please be sure to attend all three days! Once you RSVP, we will send a list of medic supplies you may want to purchase for your personal kit. Some supplies may also be able to be purchased from the facilitator at the training. Due to space constraints, we must limit the capacity of this event to 30 people, so please be aware that event attendance is first-come-first-served. To RSVP, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org ! // https://www.facebook.com/events/624617964412112/
