Lazy Sunday Afternoons...Reading, Writing & Art in the Park

Needs a location

Every other Sunday this summer, bring a book, journal, sketchbook or easel and enjoy a lazy sunny afternoon in the park. Arrive when you want, stay as long as you want...

Bring a yoga mat, blanket or lawn chair to sit on. Sunhat & sunblock suggested.

We will visit different parks throughout the summer.

If it rains, we'll move under a gazebo (or to a coffee shop if weather is formidable). Always check Meetup the day of for updates.

All are welcome. 💙

UPDATE: Our first location will be a “hidden” little known park and Magnolia garden in Springfield. Text[masked] if you can’t find us.

Authentic Relating: Be Here Now in a Circle, Drop-in with Dahlia & Laureli

Needs a location

$10.00

On Monday May 23 @1-3pm PT (4-6pm ET), join Laureli & Dahlia for Authentic Relating: Be Here Now in a Circle. Practice being mindfully in the present moment with others. Arrive on time as we close the circle and lock the zoom room ~15 min after we begin.

This event is posted in many places, so signups here don't indicate likely attendance.

In Be Here Now in a Circle, people are guided to be authentic and embodied, including with strangers. We are supported to feel our feelings, experience our and others' impact, and more deeply connect.

Be Here Now in a Circle is a group experience with little structure. There is space for emotional expression, reflection, and sharing. We aim to follow our impulses, speak our truths with compassion, and relate authentically in the moment. We do our best to own our experiences, reveal transparently, and connect from a place of genuine curiosity and wonder. We celebrate and honor who we and others are. Some considering a social or interpersonal meditation.
