~ {{ INTUITIVE READINGS }} ~

Drake Nyx, Conscious Growth’s Board Vice-President and Co-Executive Director, will be offering clarity as to what seeds are currently planted in your subconscious and what is taking root, what we might weed out, and what you might plant instead to get the results you are looking for.

Amanda Carey, Wellness Professional and Licensed Massage Therapist, will offer intuitive Tarot Card Readings. Amanda is passionate about spirituality, astrology, and holistic health services. Follow her on Instagram at @thewellnessprofessional.

~ {{ MEDITATIONS & REFLECTIONS }} ~

Morgan Bradshaw, Master of Social Work Intern and Qualified Mental Health Associate, will lead us into a guided breath work meditation that will reset our energy centers. Then, she will facilitate a reflection using the Moon Cycle Model as a way to manifest our goals and aspirations for the Spring Equinox. Follow her on Instagram at @soul.sovereignty.

Ashley Bonn will facilitate a Spring Equinox writing reflection. Based on Lauren Aletta’s book, “The Seasonal Soul,” this workshop will help us analyze our inner landscapes, manifest our soul intentions, and illuminate our personal growth cycles through poems and journaling exercises.

Drake Nyx will lead us into a deep dive into the soil, tapping in the quality of our own personal gardens and the ways we are directly intertwined with the natural world around us. The work we do internally has long-lasting effects on the healing of our planet. Allow your consciousness to expand into the bursting of Spring’s potential!

Love For Australia: A Bushfire Relief Benefit

Love For Australia: A Bushfire Relief Benefit is being held to unite our community in Portland and offer support for bushfire relief in Australia. We are hosting this event to promote awareness and healing for this beautiful planet we call home.

This event will feature local artisan vendors, live painters, musical performances, and unique art installations. In addition, speakers from Australia will offer educational presentations that explain what is happening with the bushfires, how we can help, and other ways we can co-create a resilient world through permaculture and restoration.

Proceeds from this event will go to WIRES (Wildlife Information Rescue and Education Service), Australia’s largest nonprofit organization rescuing and caring for wildlife for over 30 years. The mission of WIRES is to actively rehabilitate and preserve Australian wildlife and inspire others to do the same.

~ {{ AUSTRALIAN BUSHFIRES }} ~

Australia is being ravaged by the worst wildfires seen in decades, with large swaths of the country devastated by persistent heat and drought due to climate change. In total, more than 10 million hectares have burned across Australia’s six states. The worst-affected are New South Wales and Victoria, located in southeastern Australia.

So far, over 1 billion animals have been killed in the Australian bushfires. Due to unprecedented amounts of destroyed habitat, surviving wildlife have been forced to relocate, creating severe food shortages and other significant long-term challenges. We must show support for helpless animals who lost their homes due to human-made climate change. Regardless of distance, we are ALL connected to this intricate web of life.
