3 Year Anniversary! Full Moon in Gemini Ceremony | Nov 20 | 8-10PM | $33.30

We gather each month at The Center SF to honor our Full Moon in Ceremony. Join us Tuesday, November 20th, 8-10pm. Gathering in Ceremony is an ancient ritual that helps us synchronize our human experience with the cycles of nature.

The Full Moon is a time to seek healing through balance. It is a time to contemplate what has been supporting our highest path of consciousness, manifest the intentions we set at the New Moon, realize what patterns or beliefs no longer serve us, and let them go! Full Moon energy has its strongest effect on us three days before and up to three days after it is full.

Introduction to Energetic Lovemaking with Bibi Brzozka | Dec 7 | 7:30-10PM | $40

Energetic Lovemaking, also described as Sacred Sexuality or Conscious Sex, allows human beings to use sexuality not only for pleasure and procreation but also for reaching higher states of consciousness.

Sound Immersion Experience with Danny Goldberg- The Center SF | Dec 9 | 7-9PM | $30

The sound vibrations of singing bowls, gongs & chimes guide us into a deep meditation. The healing vibrations pass through our bodies, opening blockages, allowing our minds to quiet. A wide range of ancient world traditions from Confucianism to the Pythagoreans’ claimed that sound could not only "tune the soul" but affect our cosmological & social worlds as well. The physiological impact of sound on the body, emotions & cognition is apparent. Through the vibrations of these instruments we experience an inner calm & deep relaxation that enables us to journey within & center. The Sound Immersion Experience presents for Stanford University’s Health Improvement Program as well as at many yoga studios, wellness centers throughout the Bay Area & Santa Cruz. www.DannyGoldberg.org

Plant Allies for Shadow work | Dec 17 | 7-9PM | $30

This class will take you on a journey within your soul. The shadow represents the darker aspects within, the parts of us that the conscious mind often chooses to ignore. The shadow within us holds trauma, fear, and self doubt. So why address it? Because when we go into the darkness, feel, process, and move through it we can experience more light than ever imaginable. Yule also known as Winter Solstice is near and this is a great time of year to do this inner work. This Solstice represents a time of reflection, looking within and processing so we can prepare to plant our seeds of intention in the coming months. Doing Shadow Work can help bring awareness into who we are, resulting in inspirations, soul purpose, growing edges, and excitement! This work can challenge our limits and having plant allies during this process to can be incredibly supportive. Please bring a journal, pen, and 7 dollars for amulet making supplies.
