Astrology meet ups at Inner Sense Healing Arts build community while serving as a space for astrologers of all levels to learn, practice, and network. Anyone with an interest in astrology is encouraged to attend!

 

Meet ups begin with a short feature from a guest astrologer on a specific topic or current transits. There is built in time for mingling, snacking, tea, and drinks followed by small group breakouts that provide time for connecting with one other, diving deeper into the topic of discussion, and opportunities for learning & chart reading. Meet ups will always end with a closing circle and some unstructured time to connect with community.

 

Meet Up Agenda:

7:30 - 8:15 | Mini lecture and group discussion led by rotating featured astrologer

8:15 - 9:00 | Small Groups

9:00 - 9:15 | Closing circle

Thursdays, 7:30p-9:15p CST

Astrology Meetup

How are the elements Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space, expressed in you and your world? Are you grounded and steady, but sometimes a stick in the mud? Are you laser-focused and bright while perhaps a bit of a hothead? Are you a breath of fresh air though occasionally spaced out?

The ancient holistic healing tradition of Ayurveda is based on these five elements.

In this course, you'll unpack the ayurvedic concepts of dosha, subtle dosha, vayu, and gunas as frameworks for understanding yourself and the world. Class each month will cover practices, mindsets and lifestyle habits to find balance for your constitution physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

Come for Elements of Ayurveda at 6:30 pm and stay for Marcelyn's yoga class at 8:00pm to put them into practice!

First Tuesdays, 6:30p-7:30p CST

Elements of Ayurveda

A monthly offering to help people discover, develop, and trust their psychic abilities. Each gathering features a new exercise, process, or meditation, guided by Kevin and Jessica Oberhausen, professional energy healers and channelers. Kevin and Jessica assist each participant in learning to recognize the psychic abilities they already have, and develop their trust and awareness by helping them through common mental and emotional roadblocks. 

Some of what participants will learn:
-How psychic senses are experienced, both in general and specific to them
-How to develop their own psychic practices to further develop their abilities
-How to deal with self-doubt
-How to distinguish their ego from their own psychic awareness
-Insight to what the journey of psychic development can look like

Open to all levels of experience. Join us every 3rd Tuesday and keep exploring with us!

Psychic Development: Tap Into Your Psychic Abilties

This Reiki Meditation is open to all, regardless of prior experience with Reiki. Come with an open mind and a desire to receive and share energetic support.

We will begin with a guided meditation in which Reiki energy will be initiated to flow in and through all participants. After a period of deep rest and receiving, participants will be invited to return from their experience and join in the sharing of Reiki. Our closing meditation will guide all to send Reiki, prayers, healing, and intentions to our Selves, our loved ones, our larger communities, front line workers, those suffering with illness or loss, and the planet as a whole.

Thursdays, 7:30p-8:15p CST

Reiki Meditation

For centuries, humans have been gathering in community for full moon rituals. The presence of a full moon carries the potent energy of creation, manifestation, death, + rebirth. The light of a full moon offers illumination to realize our desires, receive clarity, + celebrate our growth. Once we become enlightened to ways that are blocking us, we can begin to let them go. 

Full Moon abunDANCE is a guided journey + dynamic laboratory to traverse your inner cosmos. Each month we will explore the energies of that unique full moon through various dance/movement experiences. We will immerse ourselves in authentic expression to cultivate prosperity from the dance inside. Drop the labels + inhibitions in this sacred space to sooth your soul. We will come back to Earth with a sweet nite cap sound journey. No prior experience with dance or structured movement necessary, only open minds + willingness to embrace your inner-child that loves to dance! Please dress in loose comfortable clothes that allow for movement. 

Around each full moon, 7:00p-8:30p CST

Full Moon abunDANCE

Join us in creating a safe space to seek refuge and slow down from the daily hustle. Tune in with meditation and breathwork to ease into and bathe in sound, accompanied by crystal singing bowls, koshi chimes, tuning forks, drumming, and other healing instruments. These are played with the intention of re-harmonizing the body and releasing stress. This harmony and release occurs through a phenomenon known as entrainment through which our cells are brought into resonance with the precise and powerful vibrations of each instrument.

In order to receive the benefits from the sound you are not required to apply any techniques or hold any specific beliefs. Participants simply sit near the instruments and allow the produced vibrations to bring their body/mind back into a state of harmony. In addition, participants will be offered individual energy healing and vibrational alignment in the form of Reiki and tuning forks on specific areas of the body.

Dress comfortably!

Thursdays, 7:30p-9:00p CST

Elemental Herbalism

This gathering is open to all self-identifying men, non-binary, and masc-identifying folx.

Brother, the weight of secrets, shame, fear, addictions, pain, doubt... these weights are not meant to be carried alone. Together, we have the opportunity to unearth a new paradigm of healthy masculinity and truthful brotherly relating. Join us in Sacred Brotherhood for an evening of breathwork, sharing, and authentic relating practices. Council is a way for us to gather, from all our unique backgrounds and stories, to lay our burdens down. To be held and witnessed by fellow men; to experience the relief that comes with realizing we are all wounded, that we are all imperfect and afraid sometimes, and that we are not only WORTHY, but CAPABLE of rising together in unconditional Love. 

Fridays, 6:30p-9:00p CST

Sacred Brotherhood: Men's Council

This circle is inspired by and connected to the Wild Woman Project community, and open to all self-identifying womxn, non-binary, and femme-identifying folx.


We gather to reconnect with breath, feel what's on our hearts, and remember the wisdom within.

We gather to share and receive, to celebrate and grieve, to rage and rest, and to simply be as we are.

We gather to speak our truths, name our desires, release our fears, and witness courage with compassion.

We gather, because being together is medicine.

Each month we will meet in circle, for the ritual of slowing down, honoring ourselves, and reconnecting as a community. Each circle is a unique experience shaped by the womxn who show up and the energies we all bring with us, with guidance from mother earth and her seasons, the moon and her phases, and the collective experience we co-exist within.

Within each circle, you can expect:

A space of emotional safety and unconditional acceptance
A chance to share what’s alive and real for you
For every voice to be heard, no matter how soft
To have the opportunity to connect to your whole self (mind + body, heart + soul)
To escape the “normal” pace of modern life and demands of the outside world
To meet new inspiring and beautiful womxn

In addition to a soulful sharing circle, our time together might also include:
Guided meditations and visualizations
Practices for deepening self-love and self-compassion
Paired exercises for tapping into more authentic connections
Self-expression via journaling, art-making, dancing, and song
The facilitation style is inclusive, guided by love, and deeply honoring of feminine wisdom, collective intelligence, and the organic, unfolding process of the universe

We are here to co-create a new way of being together as womxn, in celebration of all that we are - tender and fierce, unique and connected.

Please bring:

Your journal + favorite pen
Anything you'd like to add to our shared space (tarot/oracle decks, crystals, essential oils, flowers, poetry, etc)
Your full self - exactly as you are <3
I look forward to welcoming you in circle soon!

Fridays, 7:00p-9:00p CST
