Welcome to Carnival of the Spirit

with Yeye Luisah Teish & Kahuna Leilani

In the Carnival of the Spirit workshop, we will learn how to create seasonal celebrations, personal and communal rituals, and cultivate a relationship to land, spirit and community. It is designed to strengthen your relationship to primal Earth.  Kahuna Leilani Birely and Yeye Luisah Teish are blessed to be two women of color who have grown up in spiritual cultures that have survived centuries of oppression and kept regard for the Sacredness of Land intact.  These remarkable women have come together to share their wisdom gained thru years of rituals, ceremonies, and a life lived in spirit and respect for our Mother Earth.  We hope you enjoy the journey.

As the sessions proceed any information will be posted here about the class.  There will be 4 sessions in total, each of the links will be here also.  We will be sending the links via email the week before the class and sessions will not be active until the time appointed.  Links to the recordings for the session will be posted here within a few days of the session.
