Dinner & Dialogue
Unraveling Colonialism - A Conversation with "The Painted Turtle Woman
Tuesday April 11th
6:30 - 8:30 p.m.
This month we have the honor of welcoming guest speaker Danika Alexis McCarthy whose Ojibwe name is "The Painted Turtle Woman." Our time together begins with a casual interview-style conversation between DEI council board member, Diane Otsuka and Danika Alexis McCarthy. Topics will be inclusive of our previous months of exploration on the subject of Unraveling Colonialism: A Study of the Native American Experience and move into topics we may not have covered previously (i.e., missing Native American and Indigenous women, a better understanding of the reference to Turtle Island, and more). This is a completely interactive discussion and audience participants are encouraged to interact with Danika throughout the program.
Danika brings a depth of knowledge, education, and lived experience in Native American studies, culture, and counseling and is herself a part of the Turtle Clan of White Earth Reservation in Minnesota. She has agreed to come into our space to offer wisdom and responses to questions that may have come up for us while on this journey together. This is our opportunity to reflect on the humanity of those peoples who have been caretakers of this land we now refer to as the United States of America. Danika invites us all to come into this space with authenticity, willing to potentially sit in discomfort and open to explore from a place of curiosity.
The evening includes a potluck for those joining in person. Please bring your favorite dish to share. We will also have time for debriefing and discussion.
Red Tent Event:
Playfully Rewiring Fear Through (gasp!) Improvisation
Saturday, April 15th
9:30 a.m - 1:00 p.m.
Our nervous systems are wired to keep us safe.
The thought of improvising is terrifying, so why even consider doing it?
You're improvising every day and might not know it.
Our inner child engages with ease and can show the way.
Playfully approaching the present moment rewires the nervous system and invites more ease into daily life.
Join us as we reconnect to the wisdom of our inner child through:
- interactive games
- reflective conversations
The Singers Craft - Soloist Workshop
Mondays 7:00 - 9:00 pm
April 24th - June 12th
This 7-week course is a safe sanctuary for anyone interested in studying the art of singing as a soloist.
Each participant selects a song to study in depth, and together we learn how to connect with and prepare a song, while at the same time breaking through misconceptions and healing limiting beliefs about what it means to “take the mic”. You’ll learn to sing from a place of authenticity and authority while fully engaging the voice. If you’ve always wanted to sing out, but never have taken the leap, here is a safe place to develop your skills. Total fee for this 7-week class is $299. Limited to 5 people, this class requires a deposit of $100.00 to hold your space. The remaining balance can be paid in any installments you like until the last class. Facilitated by Kath Robinson, 831-588-3840.
Space is limited and registration is on a first come first serve basis.

Singing as a Spiritual Practice Spring Choir Class
With Kath Robinson

This choir experience is for singers who wish to experience the joy of spiritually grounded community music this spring. We will learn songs to share with our congregation on Sunday, June 18th and together we reclaim the magic of music and experience singing as a process of blessing and being blessed rather than performance. We meet Thursday evenings from 7:00pm - 9:00pm April 27th - June 18th. No previous choir experience is necessary. Through singing, transformative conversations, musical study and personal inquiry we’ll increase our capacity for musical excellence and being an instrument of the Divine Joy of the season. Registration fee is $150. Partial scholarships are available. Contact Kath Robinson at Kath@yoursoulvoice.com for more information and to register. The best way to register is to see Kath right after service and pay via check. You can also register online at the link below with an added service charge.
