Root & Rise
1224 W Loyola Ave, Chicago IL
May 4, 2019

Root & Rise creates space for healing and celebration as we move into the new moon in Taurus. The moon in the fixed earth sign of Taurus will help us get rooted, harness the energy of the spring equinox, and transform it into new artistic, spiritual, and creative pursuits. Drawing on spiritual and ancestral narratives, artist Zuri Washington will transform Roman Susan into an ephemeral sanctuary in which our physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies can coalesce. Jamila Kinney, of Moving Soul Wellness, will guide us on a new moon meditation, and the program will culminate in a euphoric dance party.

All bodies and identities are welcome.
