6:30 to 8:30 pm

  • Do you long for connection with other women?
  • Do you hunger for deep conversations on things that matter?
  • Do you yearn to be connected to the creative heart of yourself and others?

Then come to the Red Thread Circle!  An ancient Chinese story says that at birth, those who are meant to be together are connected by an invisible red thread.  It may be stretched or snarled, but never broken.  Come and explore with your Red Thread sisters!

Donna Papenhausen and Victoria Domenichello-Anderson will gather with you and do a simple centering ritual; enter into inquiry together to ponder and reflect on questions of importance to our lives and creativity, and engage in a brief art process to ground our conversation through creative expression.  There will be a hosting fee for Red Thread Circle of $20 per session.

You can register in advance here, or just drop in for Red Thread Circle!
