Air/Briah: Breathing a Bellow of Beauty

Take a deep breath into the beauty of autumn. As the leaves’ fancy colors leap through the air we will bellow out our songs of gratitude, build community, express ourselves and explore ancient traditions. 

There is a teaching in Judaism that an angel whispers over each blade of grass, “Grow, Grow.” In this workshop we’ll learn to listen to the whispers of ancients encouraging us to be our full selves. We’ll sing (and learn) songs, we’ll blow the shofar (ram’s horn), we’ll do breath work, a sound mikveh (metaphoric ritual bath), make art about the element of air and receive loving encouragement to set free our voices. 

No Hebrew or Singing Experience required. Beginners Welcome. 

Led by Kohanot (Hebrew Priestesses) Nomy Lamm and Rebekah Erev.

Mystical Jewish Healing Arts: An introduction to Jewish Feminist Earth-based Practices & Elemental Systems

 

The roots of Jewish lineage and practice lie in an elemental connection to the earth, song, life cycles and community - elements often associated with the divine feminine or G!ddess energy. Come learn about the ancient roots of G!ddess consciousness in Judaism through exploring the basic elements that make up our lives: earth, wind, fire and water. We will use song, embodied practices and mystical teachings of the Hebrew letters, the Tree of Life, plants and angels, weaving together our histories and creating a lineage we want to claim and build our lives around. Taught by Kohanot (Hebrew Priestesses) Nomy Lamm and Rebekah Erev.

All are welcome regardless of Jewish background.

$25-45 sliding scale

2 scholarship tickets are available to each, please inquire. Priority given to POC and folks with disabilities.

Manifesting the Intuitive Body

U R INTUITIVE! You are. You may have been told in more than words that you were not, that only certain people had that skill. Or, if you expressed your intuition probably someone told you it was in your head or worse, that you were crazy. But that was a lie. Being intuitive is for everyone.

In this workshop you will learn basics about setting boundaries and trusting your bodies. You will understand how trauma from living in a capitalist society blocks your intuition and you’ll learn exercises to unblock yourself. You will learn how using your intuition can assist in manifesting your dreams.

Everything will be taught in a fun, safe environment. You will learn how to use divination tools and how your body is your best tool for divining your future.

Please bring a journal and something to write with.

Unleashing Your Creative Animal

Unleashing Your Creative Animal

Remember when you were a kid and you wrote, drew, danced and sang for the pure joy of it?

You were free of the talons of capitalism. You had an inescapable desire to create and this part of you never died! Believe it or not, it's still here. It’s your animalistic nature, the ache and longing to express yourself. The stories of your life reveal this creativity. There aren't just certain people who have an interesting story to tell, everyone does. Everyone has access to the creative energy moving in the universe. It's in you, there's no escaping it.

Through learning to tap into the stories of our lives, this workshop will teach a process that allows you to access that state of flow, some call the 'zone,' that existed in you as a child. We will use meditation and journaling exercises based on Ira Progoff's, At a Journal Workshop and teachings from Lynda Barry and Marilyn Frasca. The Moon Angels will also be our helpers. And we'll learn from each other's stories.

You will leave this class with concrete skills and exercises to tap into your creative flow at any time. I'm not kidding.

Please note: This class is for anyone: people unidentified as artists, established working artists of all mediums (writers, dancers, musicians) and hobby artists. It is a low pressure, accepting environment.

$40 workshop fee.

Moon Angel Oracle Card Readings:

Rebekah Erev is the creator of the Moon Angels Oracle Deck, an intuitive, creative tool they use to support you in being your most fully realized self. As an artist intuitive, their framework is seeing: seeing creative energy and potential. Rebekah guides you to feel into what’s most present in the moment, supporting you to release what’s no longer needed and cheering on the liberation of your authentic self that’s aching to be shown to the world.

Ultimately what’s most important is what resonates in your bones, what gives you a sense of self-determination. Readings simply respond to what is present. There is a recognition in your body when something feels “right.” It’s not an emotional response, although emotions may attach themselves to it as it integrates. Rebekah listens, coaches and helps you discover this for yourself- your own wisdom.

Come receive an intuitive reading to give you insight and courage for the manifestation of a small or large project, a budding or big dream!

Manifesting the Creative Body

Remember when you were a kid and you wrote, drew, danced and sang for the pure joy of it?

You had an inescapable desire to create and this part of you never died! Believe it or not, it's still here. It's the ache and longing to express yourself. There aren't just certain people who have an interesting story to tell, everyone does. Everyone has access to the creative energy moving in the universe. The moon serves as a constant support in our creative unfolding.

In this workshop we will learn skills to unblock our creative flow and tap into the creative well  inside each of us. We will support each other by identifying what holds us back. We will use meditation, breathing and learning about the moon cycle to awaken a kindness for our precious creativity. We will make collages to serve as a reminder to bring home.

You will leave this class with concrete skills and exercises to tap into your creative flow at any time. Not kidding.

Please bring a journal and any art supplies including magazines you might want to use for collaging.

Manifesting the Sexual Body

7:30 PM19:30

Manifesting the Sexual Body

Our bodies are capable of immense pleasure. Sexual energy runs through the current of our world. However, because we live in a capitalist society our sexuality is often manipulated and abused. But we are taking it back.

In this workshop we will claim the precious, tender, raucous bud of our sex: our whole bodies. We will learn how our sexual lives are integrated in every aspect of our waking and dreaming. We will learn how to use the moon to heal and guide our expression of sexuality, no matter our gender. You will leave this workshop feeling more empowered in your sexual expression, able to use your body in a subtle manifestation of both your sexual dreams and every other aspect of your life.  

All the exercises in this workshop will be individual, clothed, confidential and completely optional. We will have some group discussion but most of the workshop is focused on an internal process of meditation, journaling and subtle body movement.

Please bring a journal and something to write with.

DIY Art School at WCCW

The DIYPhD and DIY Art School programs are interested in a radical shift from contemporary education that currently exists, one that funnels creators, activists, educators, thinkers and/or artists through higher education programs leaving them in debt and with little resources to feel supported in creatively expressing themselves. Our programs seek to provide support and understanding of a creative process that comes from within and is generative in its approach. To us, this is a radical shift. We believe radical education and creative process is aligned with intuitive process and community love. This program will explore the mission, goals, and teachings of the DIYPhD and DIY Art School programs. Participants will also find what their own DIYPhD and DIY Art School path is.

Click here to register. $25 members/$30 non-members.

DIY Education is Sarita Dougherty, David Whitaker of DIY PhD and Rebekah Erev of DIY Art School Bay Area.

Hex Work Exhibition

Hex Work Exhibition

The group formerly known as DIY MFA Bay Area invites you to a visual art show exploring THE HEX as autonomous feminist magic.

Featuring:

Celeste Chan
Inés Ixierda
Lacey Johnson
Rebekah Erev
Rachel Stallings
Rob Thoms

We are re-imagining grassroots feminist responses to violence. Through self and community education, we are using an imagined lens: A hex as a spell for feminist autonomy and collective self defense. Each artist has explored what this means to them, presenting multiple interpretations of hexes as a vehicle for self determination, self defense, protection of self and community, transformative justice, time and place, cultural transformation, creative ways to respond to violence without using the prison system, and as a vehicle for self determination.

Please join us for the Opening: October 19, 6-9pm.

Artist Talk: October 29 2-4pm

The exhibition is at Qulture Collective October 10- Nov 1.

About Us:

{We are currently under threat of legal action by a New York based for-profit DIY MFA LLC for our DIYness. Come witness the last exhibition DIY MFA will hold under it’s current name!} 

From here forth we will be known as DIY Art School. We are a self-directed, collectively conceived Masters program in the San
Francisco Bay Area that aims to achieve higher education without life-altering debt. We find and create the resources needed for effective creative practices. Using public libraries as our classrooms, we rotate roles as facilitator and students, investigating topics such as loss, desire, identity, and ancestry through writing, artmaking, discussion, and visioning.

Soul Candles: Days of Awe
Oct
1
to Oct 2

Soul Candles: Days of Awe

Please join Rebekah Erev and Jonah Aline Daniel at the home of Narrow Bridge Candles for a magical day of connection with ancestors, queer and trans lifting up of women's traditions in Judaism, and ritual beeswax candlemaking. Participants will take the candles they have crafted home with them. Snacks and tea provided. 

Workshop 2-6pm, Dinner and Havdallah 6-9 pm (Participants are invited to stay for dinner and Havdallah, the observance of the transition from Shabbat to the rest of the week)
Address will be provided with RSVP


ABOUT THE WORKSHOP: There are vast and diverse teachings and uses of candles in Judaism. Everywhere that candles have been used, they have also been made. In this workshop we will draw from Russian and other Eastern European traditions of making "Soul Candles" during the Days of Awe (the Jewish High Holy Days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.) 


Soul candles are made to both honor ancestors and protect the living. Burned during Yom Kippur and throughout the year, their lighting awakens the souls of ancestors and calls on them to pray for the wellbeing of the living.  This candlemaking tradition has been passed down through "tkhines," Yiddish collections of prayers by and for women. Obscured historically by Patriarchy and Christian Dominance, we bring the tkhines of Jewish women into our lives and hold them up to shine brightly. The cost of workshop includes all candle making materials and refreshments. Each participant will go home with a set of Shabbat candles, a Havdallah candle, a Soul Candle and a Yahrzeit Candle. 

COST: $150-$250. Any amount you are able to pay above the base amount will support our ability to fund scholarships. Please inquire about partial scholarships if cost is prohibitive to attendance. 

TO REGISTER: Email: narrowbridgecandles@gmail.com or call 707.669.4866. Space is limited.

ACCESS INFORMATION: The workshop space can be wheelchair accessible but has no bathroom, the mobile home has three stairs up. Both spaces are fragrance free except for beeswax. Participants are asked to attend fragrance free. Click here for more information about how to be fragrance free and contactnarrowbridgecandles@gmail.com with access questions.

Do you feel creatively blocked? Are you a person who is creative, but struggles to identify as an artist? Do you want to make art but feel like something’s holding you back? Do you think there are a lot of rules about who gets to be an artist? Are you an artist but feel blocked, or want to feel more free to express yourself?

Then this workshop is for you!

Leif J. Lee and Rebekah Erev, inspired by their own creative rituals and practices will guide you through identifying your creative blocks with exercises to unlock your creative animal. (It’s wild.) They will share their personal journeys, and continued challenges with being a creative person.

Once we identify our blocks we’ll encourage each other in our creative expression with group exercises. We will transform our struggles, and use our vulnerability as a source of strength and inspiration! In the workshop we will do a low pressure collaborative art project to really let our freak flags fly, and bring together a community of artists through group collaboration.

All are welcome! Please contact Lee or Erev directly for scholarship information.

We will use meditation and journaling exercises based on Ira Progoff's, At a Journal Workshop and teachings from Lynda Barry and Marilyn Frasca. The Moon Angels will also be our helpers. And we'll learn from each other's stories. 

You will leave this class with concrete skills and exercises to tap into your creative flow at any time. I'm not kidding. 

When: Sundays in June 5pm - 7pm 

Where: West Berkeley location, I will let you know location upon registration. 

Cost: $80-$120 sliding scale. (Please inquire about scholarships if financial assistance is needed to attend.)

SIGN UP HERE!

Please note: This class is for anyone: people unidentified as artists, established working artists of all mediums (writers, dancers, musicians) and hobby artists. It is a low pressure, accepting environment.

DIYMFA at Open Engagement

Come join DIYMFA at the Omni Commons as part of the Open Engagement conference. We will have interactive demos, a gallery of our work and information about our program. 

From our mission statement:

DIY-MFA is a self-directed collectively conceived Masters program in the San Francisco Bay Area that aims to achieve higher art education without life-altering debt. We are not an MFA program or an alternative to an MFA. We reference MFA in order to draw into question the systems of capitalism that have created cultural homogenization, exclusionary institutions, debt and social privilege in higher education surrounding modern artists in the United States. 

We believe an interdependent system of education can further our individual self-actualization and the collective liberation of all. We find and create the resources needed for effective creative practices in the personal and public spheres we inhabit. We strive for a curriculum that incorporates multidisciplinary art with politics and personal growth. Academia as it currently exists is out of alignment with our needs; we seek an education that is dimensional, accessible, and dynamic.

HÄXÄN FESTIVAL

HÄXÄN FESTIVAL

Ryan Rebekah Erev will be performing "Mountain Oracle," live during closing night of the HÄXÄN Festival.

HÄXÄN Festival is a Bay Area film festival focusing on local filmmakers exploring psychic and mystic connections through experiments in video and film. HÄXÄN presents the kitsch of New Age pop culture alongside ancient sacred and mythological practice, as both serve as interesting avenues into this distinct cultural expression. We propose that ancient spiritual practice sifted through modern everyday interpretation has blossomed into what we have named the “Personal Occult.” We are looking for works that take this premise and make it personal and real. Our festival will celebrate witchcraft and this Personal Occult.

The HÄXÄN Festival also seeks to make a more effective context for artist made films in our community by broadening the audience for experimental film while working within the cultural microcosm of the occult. In addition to films we will be exhibiting segments of music, performance, and sculpture to bring HÄXÄN to life as a full festival. HÄXÄN will also publish a program zine with original art and writing. By being open to interdisciplinary modes of exhibition, HÄXÄN Festival remodels the idea of the traditional Film Festival into a more contemporary, adaptive cinematic experience.

We focus on short experimental works which explores magic, gender subversion, mysticism, ritual, and connections to the earth and nature.
