What we're about

Come share and create energy for our dreams in community -We provide safe, wonderful expansive events for your growth and happiness.

We so look forward to the unfolding mystery and magic of our upcoming community healing events

Building Community one vibration, one heart, one mind, one spirit, one body, and one event at a time!

Kim "Alder" McDonald provides an intimate circle to expand, ground, explore, jam, center, let go, relax, play, and dream big! Participate in healing circles, draw freestyle, meditate and journey, chant and sing heart songs, dream, play percussion and acoustic instruments, enjoy blissful vibrations, dance, and merge into oneness.

You have found a fun loving up-beat community in SW Portland that meets at least once every month! We offer gatherings and events including potlucks, sound healing, meditation, reflection, shamanic guided journeys, free play, dreaming, merging, drawing freestyle, muscle testing, vibrational healing circles, etc.

Being willing, reflective, and authentic is encouraged at our conscious community events in SW Portland. We join together in intimate gatherings with like minded folks empowering transformation and healing.

In Collective Dreaming With sacred ritual and honor we will call in and interact with power animals, spirit guides, trees, plants, earth, wind, fire, water, and star beings that choose to guide, assist, and empower us. In this ceremony we will dream with each other until our dreams are one powerful dream. In this united dream we will awaken innate dormant powers and receive sacred ancient gifts offered to us by spirit. This heart opening dream will most likely increase, accelerate, and enhance your life and purpose.

Our Community Music Jams encourage everyone to try new things, items, and instruments- free flow! ~A wonderful way to explore and express your thoughts, feelings, and creativity in a safe community! Musicians and non-musicians together create amazing sounds that awaken and expand our minds and hearts, bringing laughter and healing. ~ All skills and abilities, from beginners to professional musicians are welcome! You can bring drums/percussion/acoustic instruments or just yourself... Some drums, rattles, and small instruments will be provided. Be prepared to move energy, reflect, and bring joyful and healing vibrations to your body, mind, spirit, communities, neighborhoods and our world! Supervised children are welcome too :)

Freestyle drawing is a reflective intuitive experience where everyone co-creates community drawings by entering their hearts and allowing their bodies to move and draw with others! Beginners and artists are encouraged to join. This is so amazing and exciting to see what unfolds! Materials are supplied

Merging In Oneness is where you will merge with animals, plants, elements, trees, and other beings. With ritual and permission, as you either enter a loving being or allow a benevolent being to enter you, your life will change as gifts are bestowed upon you and your heart opens and deepens in trust with others and self.

Muscle Testing provides a valuable tool to guide you as you make decisions big and small in your daily life. This is a small group experience for those who wish to build self confidence in this complex world. You will develop the ability to discern what is best in any situation and feel more confident in making decisions.

Our twice a year Potlucks are overflowing with healthy gluten free and sugar free foods where we gather together to share a meal with fun activities!

During Shamanic Guided Drum Meditation Journeys, Alder guide you as you sit back or lie down, relax and allow the sounds and rhythms to take you to inner and outer worlds following spirit guides and allowing bliss to hold you on your journey. Teens and adults, friends and family are invited!

When participating in the Sound Vibrational Healing events you are guided and invited to co-create sounds, chanting, and rhythms using your intuition and following your heart while each participant takes turn in the middle receiving healing and bliss ~

Last but not least, I Accept Waves events empower and expands all participants on all levels including body, mind, spirit, emotions, cellularly, and lineage. All skill levels are invited to attend this radical life changing empowering co-creating workshop where you learn a new way of feeling, being, thinking and living.
