What do you wish for?

Do you base our choices on what you want, or what you think you're supposed to want? Let yourself feel what you feel and want what you want, THEN engage your mind in the process. The best wishes are born from your heart.

“Join us this summer for a series of concerts in our beautiful Redwood Grove!

60’s R&B tinged folk rock and alternative country

Will Sprott
Will Sprott, also known by his band name The Mumlers, has a penchant for conjuring the specters of haunting ‘60s folk. He wears his influences on his sleeve, borrowing from heyday rock ‘n’ roll just enough to leave room for his own embellishments, of which his soulful voice stands as a distinct highlight. In Sprott’s solo work you’ll find that even more exposed, his talents are given wiggle-room to burst and bloom.

Paula Frazer
Paula Frazer music is frequently described as melancholic alternative country, but with an eclectic mix of folk, blues and pop, among other genres, and always emphasizing her extraordinary voice.  She first came to notice by fronting the band Tarnation in the 1990s, which became a cornerstone of the nascent Americana music scene (the album I'll Give You Something To Cry About was touted by Rolling Stone as one of the 25 best Americana records ever).  Frazer has appeared on recordings and in concert with many bands and solo artists including Sean Lennon, Handsome Boy Modeling School, and Nick Cave.

Ticket includes admission to the Garden before 5:00PM. BYO picnic and drinks welcome.”

Fencing, Fighting, True Love, Miracles, Swell Escapes, Death, Lies, Truth and a little Sex abound in The Princess Bride: Live!, Dark Room Productions' tribute to the hottest fairy tale ever written. All we need is a Miracle!

The impossibly lovely Buttercup (Khamara Pettus) falls in love with Westley (James Galileo), a poor, perfect farm boy who dies at the hands of the Dread Pirate Roberts. The fabled hunter, Prince Humperdinck (Dan Foley), convinces Buttercup to marry him, but not before the land's most notorious criminal ensemble, Vizzini the Sicillian (Alexia Staniotes), Fezzik the giant (Jim Fourniadis) and Inigo the fencer (Cameron Eng), kidnap her - with the mysterious Man in Black hot on their trail. They face the Cliffs of Insanity, traverse the Fire Swamp, rage against the Machine and go to the Chapel of Love; but they'll need a Miracle before this inconceivable epic ends happily ever after. The Princess Bride: Live! is a tribute to the classic tale of high adventure and true romance from William Goldman. Buy the book, and read it to someone you love.

This show benefits Dark Room Productions, the in-house production team at the Dark Room Theater. They donate space rental, tech skills, equipment and manpower to local theater groups, keeping community theatre affordable and prolific, and within reach of artists just starting out.”

Capitola Begonia Festival
Friday-Monday, August 31-September 3
the beautiful seaside Village of Capitola, near Santa Cruz

"The homespun Capitola Begonia Festival has its roots in the moist, cool coastal climate of Santa Cruz County, California, which is eminently hospitable to the tuberous begonia. Major begonia growers were located in Capitola and Santa Cruz in the mid-20th Century, and a festival in late summer--when the begonias are in spectacular bloom--was a natural way to extend the late-summer coastal tourist season.

The 'Pacific Begonia', as it is known, was hybridized in Capitola. At the turn of the Century, the Brown family immigrated to Capitola. They tried for years to develop some sort of sustainable agriculture to assure their survival in this sparsely populated, primarily tourist area called 'Camp Capitol'. Obtaining Begonia bulbs from Germany, who bragged of 'the best flowers', and Begonia tubers from Belgium, who claimed 'the strongest tubers', the Browns cross-bred the 2 varieties, and developed the Pacific Begonia. From the 1930's to the 1970's, approx 90% of the worlds Begonias came from the Brown Bulb Ranch in Capitola.

Peggy Matthews was a local resident who taught swimming. She staged the Capitola Water Follies every fall, to showcase her swimmers. Peggy couldn't help but notice all the Begonia flowers going to waste on the Brown Bulb Ranch (where the Capitola Mall is today). Of course, she was not aware that the growers had no interest whatsoever in the flowers; they were propagating bulbs. The death of the flowers signified that it was time to dig up the bulbs and send them to market. Begonias are not a 'cut flower'.

So, in 1951, Peggy was given permission to pick as many flowers as she wanted. That year the Capitola Water Follies featured paddleboards decorated with Begonias, and that is basically how the Begonia Festival got its start. The next year was the first year of actual 'floats', and even though the real "Capitola Begonia Festival' was not official until 1954, we have always used 1952 as the starting date. Today, the Begonia fields are in Marina, which is Monterey County, and the Golden State Bulb Growers Association maintains a very large area of many types of bulbs. There are 43 acres dedicated to Begonias, over 3 million blooms, come late summer. A spectacular sight!!!"

Northern California Women's Herbal Symposium
Session 2: Friday - Monday, August 31-September 3
Black Oak Ranch, 50350 Highway 101, Laytonville
see website for detailed schedule and registration details

“PlantWomen gather! The Tribe comes together!

Now, two times a year, women from many backgrounds of life gather together in great celebration for four full days of inspiring Herbal and Sustainability classes, gourmet vegetarian meals, talented campfire capers, amazing handcrafted marketplace items, Rites-of-Passage Ceremonies, powerful campfire drumming and dancing, refreshing swimming hole dips, and conversations with remarkable and inspiring women!

We meet together under the ancient oaks, douglas firs, and bay trees of Northern California. Our main gathering area is encircled by sixteen tipis with a large firepit in the center. All classes are held sitting on the ground under these majestic trees, or under shade tarps that we have set-up. At night we camp together, either in the tipis or in tents that we each bring.

During the days we are a gathering of women and children studying, teaching, learning, networking, and talking about plants, healing, and healthy lifestyles. When the sun goes down we become a playful and celebratory group, chatting, chanting, singing, showing off our talents, drumming and dancing into the night around the campfire.

We are a group of 350-400 women and children and we gather to learn from each other, to nurture and nourish each other, to take a break from our daily lives, to regenerate, refresh, dance, frolic, talk plants, and most of all, to have a REALLY GOOD THYME together!

Each session is a separate event. Do join us for one or both sessions!”

Begins: 8:00PM
Masonic Lodge of San Mateo, 100 N Ellsworth Avenue, San Mateo

“Join Robin Hood, Lady Marian, and the Merry Men at the Blue Boar Inn for a rousing English Country Dance.

Dance to the glorious music of Renaissance rock band Avalon Rising, who will play Medieval and Renaissance music, Celtic fusion rock, and some highly anachronistic English country dances and waltzes from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries.

There will be a pre-ball dance class for those desiring to brush up on the evening's country dances, and all country and set dances will be briefly taught or called at the ball.

Remember that, like most adaptations of the Robin Hood legend, this is a purely fantasy event. While this particular version of the legend is set in the 12th century, during the absence of King Richard the Lion-hearted, costumes from the later Middle Ages, the Renaissance, or any fantasy version of either are very welcome. As usual, costumes are admired but not required.

The Blue Boar Inn boasts, of course, our famous no-host bar and a light Olde English snack buffet (Potluck contributions to the Kitchen are most welcome, especially if lifted from the Sheriff of Nottingham's table).”

For this class we will examine how to conjure the power found in herbs.

We will approach this work according to the Doctrine of Signatures and shamanic exploration of the spirits within herbs. We will also examine various other methods traditionally used for money drawing.

Chas Bogan is an artist and mystic, having studied and practiced many diverse forms of metaphysics for the past 25 years. That experience is reflected in his art, which ranges from the design of unique divination tools to various other forms of sacred expression. His shamanic talents have lead him to create various collections of spiritual supplies crafted for Modern Conjure Brand, such as baths; oils; powders; waters; and more. He is available for consultations and spiritual work by appointment Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays; during which he may be serving my clients in my capacity as a Reiki Master Teacher; Rootworker; Tarot Reader; Conjure Doctor.

“Started from a single, yet powerful women's event, this new monthly women's gathering will fill your heart and soul. Understanding that women want and need a deep level of healing and support that will take them through the evening and into the next event, the Medicine Song Healers (Medicine Men, Medicine Women, and Shamans) that Karen Glenn channels have lovingly chosen to honor the requests of the women who attended the first women's Medicine Song event and to create a monthly gathering where the women can come connect, experience, and heal.

These monthly gatherings will focus on the needs of the women who attend the event. The Medicine Song Healers will choose songs and tones that will settle and prepare everyone for the healings, connect them to their higher selves, and help to release the pain, trauma, and other blocks held by the individual women, as well as, the women as a group.  Since each song is specifically designed to work for the individual it will be sung for, and for the energy and needs of the group as well, no two events will be alike.

Come sit with the spirits of the ancient Medicine Men, Medicine Women, and Shamans as they sing their divine healing songs for you.”
