In many cultures, Fall is a time to recall the ones who came before us, the ancestors.
At my Color of Woman Graduation, Carmen Baraka (Apache) bespoke how proud and excited our ancestors were that we had come to this point, and asked 'Won't YOU be proud when your grandchildren do the work they came to do?"
We will spend time honoring our ancestors, and healing old family stories. Bring a photo of someone you'd like to remember. Using prompts from Jenafer Joy, well explore messages and insights our ancestors have for us.

You're invited to Join us for creativity and a Red Thread Circle**

We provide Tea and snacks, a simple project & sisterhood.

**In Red Thread Circles, we come together and interweave the common threads of our stories. Circles are held around the world, and are for women who wish to gather with others and do a simple creative project, which holds the energy of our visions for ourselves and the future.

From teachers to social workers, new moms to retirees, lawyers to elder support, doctors to therapists, victim advocates to bank tellers ... We all know this is a time for coming together. The Red Thread helps weave our circle, won't you join us?

($20-10 suggested, to cover room rental & supplies)

New - you (or your loved one) can order a gift card to pay for Circles and Classes via Square.

* Would you like to arrange a paint party for your friends with a Red Thread Twist? Paint With Pals parties feature a theme painting of your choice, and a fun way to celebrate friendships, milestone events, or just get together. These are a lovely alternative to the popular "cookie cutter" parties! I'm happy to work with you to choose a theme for your gathering. * Hostess attends free when you have 5 or more guests!

* If you live in another area, and are interested in hosting a Red Thread Circle, Paint with Pals party, or Intentional Creativity playshop in your home or center, please let me know!!
