August 6, 2:00 p.m. - Working with Energy – Jessica Klockau
Everything in existence contains energy with its own unique signature and feel. From the cars parked in the street, the bees in a field of flowers, and the ants living underneath the sidewalk to our house plants, the rocks lining the banks of the Mississippi, and a forest of trees, everything has energy. In this class we will learn how to recognize the energy around us, read it, and work with it. We will discuss energy vampires, empaths, etiquette, and how to shield yourself from becoming overwhelmed. We will also work as a class to practice reading other energies and manipulating our own. Come to class open and ready to experiment.

August 13, 2:00 p.m. - Beyond the Year Wheel: Cycles as the Heart of the Paganisms – Christopher Moore
Wheels within wheels! Chris Moore presents the fruits of his spiritual work over the last few years regarding personal, seasonal, and social cycles. Birth, life, love, decay, and death crest and fall, overlapping and interacting at all levels, from the cosmic to the quantum. Come listen and participate in a guided meditation that will hopefully take us beyond the idea of "Sacred Space vs. Mundania" and give us a witch's eye that sees all the wheels turn.
