More Love To Give And Recieve At Instar

There is so much to say, and we hope your saying it!  We want to let you know about some upcoming Instar Lodge happenings that we are happy are happening-happiness still exists in here despite our general malaise about the maliciousness running rampant in our current political climate and country.  We are grateful for all the good we can generate in small and large ways, and we are grateful for all the good you are doing too!

With so much disrupt and pain during this giving season, it's important to remember the art of gratitude, the power of creativity, and the gift of healing and self-care as being sources of regenerative courage and fortitude. Give more LOVE freely to yourself and others. 

Instar Lodge is giving space to healing artists in residence for the next few weeks.  Christina Bohnsack and Rebecca Squiers (local Germantown women artists) will be in residence from Dec. 1st through Dec. 22nd, both offering their healing arts practices in a community clinic on Thursday afternoons from 3:00-7:00pm, as well as private sessions throughout the week.  They may also invite other healing artists to join them as special guests throughout their residency.  Learn more about their massage and reiki practice here on the website and book your private appointments.  Clinics are walk in and priced at $30/$25 members for a 30 minute session.  The artists are contributing a portion of the clinic proceeds to Planned Parenthood.

As part of our emphasis on the healing arts this month, we are offering a special healing arts day of workshops Dec. 10th.  The day will include multiple artists, with the option to participate in an entire day of care including a vegan lunch, or the opportunity to take the workshops a la carte.  We will be announcing the line up this coming Friday and making it available to enroll on our website then!  Teaser: Sound, Chocolate, Herbs, Art, Free Radicals-Free Love

We have a new child & caregiver exploratory art workshop starting Wednesday mornings with the well loved and loving artist Alison Fox.  The workshop is called 'Little Big Art Explorer'--the name says it all--the biggness of a dive right into process based play with art materials, alongside cherished children ages 0-4--allowing paint and color to lead the way to new discovery!  Learn more here on the website.  Drop-In's Dec. 7th &14th $20 first child/$15 each after. The full series starts in January, enroll now on website (limited scholarship available).
 
WHATS MORE?! Come see us this weekend at the first ever Germantown Market hosted by our new neighbors Alder & Co.  We will be sharing products made by our future workshop facilitators (think raw chocolate by Not Your Sugar Mama's, made in america travel bags by Humane Imperfection and even more goodness) artworks from exhibiting artists, and we will also set up a creativity table--you make it happen!
