STORYTELLING & HAIKU WORKSHOPS: SAT, APR 7, 1-4:30 PM, FREE A lively afternoon of storytelling about the sun and moon from different cultures and traditions followed by a haiku workshop to create our own stories through poetry. Participants' poems will be installed as part of the exhibit. Space is limited to 30 participants and available on a first come first served basis.
NEW MOON INTENTION-SETTING RITUAL: SUN, APR 15, 2-4 PM, FREE This exhibit closes on the day of the April New Moon, which happens in the sign of Aries. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and known for fiery, potent, action oriented energy! New Moons happen when the moon is darkened by the shadow of the sun, and in the darkness of this lunar phase, we find the rich soil of initiation and new beginnings. This is a WONDERFUL day to make our wishes known to the universe! Please join us as we come together to mark this time by making wishes for the coming month, half-year, and full year. We will gather, express and share gratitude for the blessings in our lives, have a brief silent meditation, and write down our wishes (intentions)! You will have the chance to share them with the group or keep them private. These activities are intended for adults. There will be the opportunity for some movement in the space.
