We are a female-identifying collective of artists and healers based in the Eagle Rock / Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles.
The name November is derived from the Latin for ‘ninth month’, which is ‘Novembris mensis’. Being the year’s 11th month, November is endowed with extra metaphysical/spiritual meaning by this. Magically and metaphysically representing the earth wizard’s ancient powers, the extremely powerful number 11 ushers in social occasions and excited energy. On the 11th of this 11th month, a shift of energies ushers in influences coming from other worlds via the Taurids (or Halloween Fireballs), an annual meteor system or shower that is associated with the Encke comet.
Representing the spiritual warrior, this month acts like a mirror, reflecting the truth that the real battle invariably lies with your own self. Now is the time to remain mindful and concentrate on right actions and correct conduct. This month’s energies provide personal protection. Not permitting any escapism, the energies of the number 11 will not allow you to cover your eyes and deny happenings around you, but will instead call for awakening and action.

Feeding Your Hungry Ghosts: Meditation and Rituals For Honoring Your Unfulfilled Desires And Finding Inner Peace November 7th 6:30pm-8:30pm · $35
In Buddhist cosmology, a hungry ghost refers to an energetic entity that is eternally tormented by its insatiable desires, never experiencing a moment of peace and contentment. As human beings, we all carry our own versions of hungry ghosts that speak to our own personal hell of feeling like we are never enough no matter what we do or how much we accomplish. Left unchecked, our inner hungry ghosts can create a perpetual spiritual hole which we desperately try to fill through a never-ending cycle of unhealthy relationships, addictions, constant busyness, mind numbing behaviors, unhealthy validation seeking, and more.
Feeding Your Hungry Ghosts: Meditation and Rituals For Honoring Your Unfulfilled Desires And Finding Inner Peace invites participants to consciously meet their inner hungry ghosts with compassion and patience through guided meditation, writing exercises, and ritual in order to begin understanding the true soul needs hiding beneath the chase for ephemeral worldly desires. Only then can we start nourishing ourselves back to our inherent state of divine wholeness to truly feel at home within ourselves.
**Please bring a writing utensil and a journal
