Let's gather together on the July full moon to explore “ordinary magic.” The experience of magic is not necessarily esoteric, sparkly, and ethereal. Quite often, magic is earthy and practical and right in front of us. It is always present as long as we are open to it. We can directly relate to the magic of each moment in very ordinary, simple, and grounded ways.
During this special full moon gathering, participants will engage in an opening purification ritual, receive meditative practices to tap into the experience of ordinary magic, and engage in discussions around how this applies to our everyday lives.
Following the conclusion of the gathering, everyone is welcome to venture outside together for a walk to experience the beauty of the moon (weather permitting).
This event will take place at Tara Rook Studios, 142 High Street, Suite #534, Portland, Maine (in the State Theatre Building)
$30-40 sliding scale via cash or Venmo @tararookstudios. If you plan to pay full price and prefer to pay by card, you can purchase tickets through PortsmouthNH Tickets. Otherwise, please email [email protected] or [email protected] to sign up!
