Sacred Saturdays
Monthly Community Gathering & Sacred Ritual
Hosted by Michael Pooley and co-created by an amazing team of guest presenters and volunteers, Sacred Saturdays are monthly community gatherings devoted to sacred rituals, practices, and meditation.

Each Sacred Saturday is unique, drawing from traditions such as Tantra, meditation, yoga, Sufism, Buddhism, Native American, dance, chant, and other paths. Often, you will participate in a "Tantric Puja" (sacred ritual) that may involve movement, music, breath practice, energy work, dance, chant, guided visualization, communication practices, and other ways to honor and celebrate our hearts, our bodies, and spirit. Practices and rituals may be done alone, with a partner, or as part of the whole group. We strive to create an environment that is safe, respectful, and comfortable for those coming alone or as a couple, those coming for the first time, and those who want to build an ongoing community of people devoted to cultivating sacredness and joy in life.
