OTW July Gatherings

by | Jul 3, 2018

Summer is officially here, and we have so many exciting events coming up!

July 9 and 23

“Moon Mondays” is a special, recurring Reiki circle Whitney (of Canyon and the Moon) and Co-wolf Micha Thomas have lovingly created, happening twice a month, including: a lunar calendar information and intention setting opening, Reiki discussion, guided meditation, brief healing sessions (Reiki, crystals, oils, sounds) from Micha and Whitney, group practice of giving and receiving Reiki, and closing group shares.

Reiki is an ancient healing technique and transfer of Universal Life Force Energy. No prior Reiki experience or training is necessary. This is an inclusive and non-discriminating group, set in a beautiful indoor/outdoor, nature-laden setting nestled in the foothills of the mountains in Altadena. It’s a chance to connect with others and Self should you be on a path towards becoming a healer, or simply an opportunity to heal in the company of others. Come enjoy the ancient art of Reiki, the power of communal circles, and the joy of a group you can look forward to twice a month.
TIME: 7-8:30pm
COST: Suggested donations of $10-20
DATES: July 9, July 23, August 13, August 27
LOCATION: Altadena, CA (address will be sent following sign-up)

July 15

The third dinner in our overall series is rapidly approaching, and we’re thrilled about this one! Come spend your Sunday (July 15) with us! We will be joining forces with our friend Sanae Barber of Sanae Intoxicants who will be helping us lead this evening, as we engage in an interactive experience of scents and how they affect us somatically and emotionally. We’ll discuss how certain herbs and botanicals benefit our nervous systems and overall health and how easy it is to forage for them and add into our diets. This evening is extra special because it marks the beginning of out “Scent-sational Talks and Aromatic Eating” dinners within our overall Of The Wolves Dinner Series.

We will be serving an extensive farm to table meal, hors d’oeuvres, Bonterra organic wine, and aromatic non-alcoholic drinks and kombucha, all incorporating rose, lavender, rosemary and orange essence, with the help of our partners Lassens. If you do not consume alcoholic beverages, this evening and the workshop will still be enjoyable. Each attendee will be gifted a small customized bottled scent by Sanae for the evening! This group will be kept intentionally small, so please register early! Click here to purchase tickets!


August 12

For all of you LA Westsiders, our fourth dinner in our series will be quite convenient! On Sunday, August 12, comrades and contributors, Goldthread Herbs, and Meredith Klein, ayurvedic chef of Pranaful, will be curating this night of herb-filled, tonic-laden ayurvedic eating and education. More details coming shortly, so keep an eye out!
