Lotus Fire Empowerment Circle

The Lotus Fire Empowerment Circle discussion and craft groups, hosted by DESC, will meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month! The discussion days (2nd Wednesday each month) will consist of a round table discussion on different topics for personal growth, empowerment, and development, as well as learning ways to connect with our Selves through energy work and meditation.
Our craft days (4th Wednesday each month) will be themed crafts based on the previous discussion, as a way of exploring our Divine Selves through creative expression!

The Lotus Fire Empowerment Circle is from 6-8 p.m. As a reminder, 6:00 - 6:30 p.m. is our 'meet and greet' time, to get to know each other and de-stress a little from our days. The gatherings are from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. Please see the individual descriptions below for locations for the gatherings.
Upcoming classes:

May 9, 2018 - "Reflections of Self" This month's topic will focus on recognizing our mirrors in others, as well as how we 'reflect' to others. We will be gathering at 1718 RockHill Road in Manhattan (please note the updated address). 

May 23, 2018 - "Reflections of Self" craft night - we are planning to do some mirror etching or drawing for our craft this week - if you have a small mirror you would like to bring, please feel free! If not, supplies will be provided. We Will be gathering at 1718 RockHill Rd in Manhattan. 

June 13, 2018 - "Personal Responsibility" This month's topic will focus on learning how all of our decisions affect our lives, and how co-creating our realities can help determine / change our future paths.

June 27, 2018 - "Personal Responsibility" craft night - this will be a 'finishing a craft night', where we bring something we've started and work on finishing it. Our goal is to finish the project before we leave, to represent following through on our responsibilities. :)
