Women's Visioning Circle
Saturday, 10:00AM-9:30PM
Inspiring, delightful, and empowering, our first day of ritual creates a safe and sacred space in which we:
Dive deep to discover what blocks treasured goals from coming true.  Drum and chant as each woman releases her blocks to the fire.  Explore life purpose.  Share the pleasures of creating colorful Treasure Maps as you develop goals in nine areas of your life.  Experience the depth and awe of a circle in which peers and colleagues witness each woman breathing life and power into her fondest visions.  Co-create magic for ourselves and for the planet in sacred celebration.
Women report dreams coming true all year from this empowerment ritual!  Many return year after year, telling us the miracles of goals being realized in their lives. Some laminate their goals and post them to bring the visions into every day.

Moving Visions Into Reality
Sunday, 10:30AM-5:30PM
Building on Saturday's goals, Sunday focuses on:
Utilizing practical strategies and planning tools to move treasured goals toward effective action plans and time lines.  Translating goals into accomplishments through the use of mind maps and flow charts.  Releasing old patterns and fears of success.  Discovering tools to ground your plans in time and space so they truly support achievement of your fondest visions.  Energizing new ways of being as you enjoy the compassionate support of this powerful circle of women affirming your new steps with you.

This day deepens our commitment to letting our goals guide our actions.”

The 14th Annual Edwardian Ball, Saturday, 8:00PM-2:00AM
The Regency Ballroom, 1300 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco

“What, pray tell, is The Edwardian Ball?

The Edwardian Ball is an elegant and whimsical celebration of art, music, theatre, fashion, technology, circus, and the beloved creations of the late, great author Edward Gorey. Set in our own version of ‘Edwardian’ times, this multi-media extravaganza has grown over the past decade from a small underground club night into an internationally recognized event, now operating with the blessing of The Edward Gorey Charitable Trust.

Costumed and enthusiastic attendees, traveling from as far as Australia, Japan, and the UK, flock to this San Francisco tradition for a delightful blend of ballroom dancing, live music, riveting stage shows, DJs, fine art galleries, a vending marketplace, absinthe cocktails, steam machinery, parlour games, sideshows, and more. All ages are welcome and appropriate in this darkly humorous and elegant setting, where literary aficionados rub elbows with insect-like creatures parading on stilts… where historically-accurate Edwardian recreationists waltz by a steam-powered tea garden… where the only guiding rule is that you join in on the fun!”

Healing the Divide: A Reconciliation Ritual for Men and Women
with The Sacred Future Collective
Friday-Sunday, January 24-26
Sonoma County  location given upon registration

“Dominant culture has promoted an agenda for thousands of years of dividing men from the feminine energies, in women, in the Earth, and in themselves. Currently, human consciousness is taking a powerful turn towards the reclamation of the feminine. Women are stepping more into empowerment and men are stepping more into their hearts. Men and women are recognizing once again that we're more powerful together than apart. It's time to heal the divide. There are wounds on both sides, as the patriarchal paradigm has distorted and insulted both sexes through toxic shaming, promoting blame and feeding the realms of narcissism and victim consciousness.

The Sacred Future Collective is devoted to the uniting of the feminine and masculine energies on the planet on all levels. That is why we're hosting this three-day retreat focused on this crucial work, which is also deeply liberating and joyful!

At this retreat we will focus on:
Union between the inner male and female archetypes.
Men holding men through forgiveness and elevation.
Women holding women through forgiveness and elevation.
Daily Sacred Council circles.
A day-long ritual of reconciliation between women and men.
Visioning the potentials for planetary awakening and healing together! How can we help our communities heal through inviting men and women into reunion?

We Are Two Halves Of One Whole.
We Are Here To Be Each Other's Greatest Allies! Not Enemies.
Let's Lift Each Other Up And Elevate Consciousness Together.”

Baba Yaga’s House
crafting workshop with Ulla Milbrath and John B. McRae
Saturday-Sunday, February 1-2, 11:00AM-5:00PM
Castle in the Air 1805 Fourth Street, Berkeley, 510-204-9801
$300 includes materials
register in advance - this class will sell out!

“Charmed by a classic Slavic folktale, John and Ulla bring you this unique class. Baba Yaga is sometimes a wise woman; at other times she is a frightful hag. She flies around in a giant mortar and lives in a hut that stands on chicken legs surrounded by a skull fence. She kidnaps children on occasion (like the witch in the Hansel and Gretel tale) but is also sometimes sought out for wisdom and guidance by heroes.

Here is an opportunity for you to learn from two masters of fairy-tale art, as Ulla and John jointly teach the construction and decoration of Baba Yaga’s woodland home. On the first day of class, you’ll learn how to construct her hut out of chipboard, thatch the roof, and how to wind and attach the magical chicken legs which support the structure. The next day you’ll make tiny furniture from found objects for the cabin. To complete your folktale, you can choose to dress a mouse Baba Yaga, fabricated from re-claimed vintage mink fur over an anthropomorphic manikin by John and Ulla for you, with fabric scraps provided in class.”
