“We have been raised to fear the yes within ourselves, our deepest cravings.” ― Audre Lorde

Women of color can spend a lifetime saying yes to others, giving of ourselves, to our community, to our families and loved ones. Especially in these times, a great deal of our emotional labor is spent enduring the pain of sexist, racist, homophobic and other arrows of oppression thrown our way. We need a place that allows our bodies to rest, to work it out, to move our bodies and spirit toward healing.

The Spirit Gathering is a space to say yes to ourselves and be in community with other women of color. This is a non-structured movement space. There will be no choreography to follow and no instruction on dance technique. It’s just music, movement and you. Just move something!
