Taking Back Black Friday, Ace&Jig swap

More than 15 million tons of textile waste are generated yearly in the USA alone.  When it comes to sustainable fashion, the #1 most impactful thing we can do is increase the lifespan of our garments, one way of doing this is swapping!  Trading specifically Ace&Jig pieces is what this event is about.  Bring along those gently loved pieces you find yourself passing over in the closet and trade for something, new-to-you.

Constellation on Racism - (HUB & Service Kitchen)

With Nikki MacKay and Chris Halas Wood

Family and ancestral constellation allows an individual or collective to uncover the hidden historical narrative that they are unconsciously holding in order to bear witness and give place to the trauma before fully and freely move forward with their own life.   Our goal is to truly bear witness to the collective past trauma as well as see our own place in relation to it.

Tuning in to Community (HUB)

In a time where so many of us may be struggling to listen to one another, we invite you to join us in the practice of compassionate listening. Listening is our intention, music is our means! 

Singing together can be rejuvenating and encourages us to express our human experience through our voices. With no previous experience or talent required, join Samantha Sinai, cellist and community music-making facilitator, for a series of monthly gatherings that are grounded, lively, fun and meaningful. 

At each gathering, expect an inward listening experience such as a meditation with live music or simply a music listening experience, a group music making experience such as group singing or group drumming, and a conversational experience centered around the theme for the gathering. 

Tickets online at https://www.picatic.com/ tuningintocommunity cost $18 for one event and $40 for all three. Pay at the door for $20 per event!

Dates for Winter Series: Sundays  December 10th, January 7th & February 4th from 6:15-8:45 p.m. Feel free to arrive at 6:00 for tea!

Take this time to ground and create space for the more yin and inner work of the season.

 Appropriate for all levels, all are welcome. Please bring a yoga mat.

PLEASE RSVP TO INFO@ATTHRESHOLD.COM
