Solstice Fire Ritual, 7PM
Ritual is a way of coming together in celebration, immersing into the sacred, and unifying the consciousness of the community. The solstice is a high energy time to visualize and manifest our dreams. In this fire ritual we will have time to organize our own intention, call in what we most love and yearn for and let go of what hinders us.

Tandemonium Performance, 7:30PM
Tandemonium Yoga Dance and Music Collective creates and performs athletically powerful and artistically inspiring yoga dance to beautiful live music, often collaborating with visual artists and poets. Our choreographic concoctions combine challenging yoga asanas with lyrical dance and a multitude of musical instruments and genres. Performances are fun, playful, and mesmerizing! The group, based in Ithaca, NY, features Alison Simione, Karen Purcell, Joe Smellow, and Elizabeth Simkin.
