Join me in the Breeezeway gardens for a celebration of the New Year . . .
I'm so excited to share the new Breeezeway space, a truly nurturing creative oasis in the middle of busy Oakland neighborhood. There will be food, music, and fresh air to celebrate making it through diverse situations in 2017 to this stage. OMG what a year!
And what is in store for 2018?
At sunset, we'll stop to honor the setting Sun and rising Full Moon, which symbolize setting of 2017 dreams and experiences . . . ushering in the fresh 2018 life cycle. Fire, water, music and Peruvian ceremony will set the space for wisdom and insights necessary for continuation on this good Red Road.
Mucho Munay, Nancy
