Aristophanes feels like the embodiment of modernity. The 25 year-old Taiwanese MC, real name Pan Wei Ju, spits in Mandarin, was turned on to rap not directly by American hip-hop but its diaspora, and came to prominence after being discovered on Soundcloud by Grimes. After appearing on the Art Angels track “Scream” last year, Grimes called her “terrifying and beautiful,” referring to her music as, “the new shit.”

TAROT 101

We're looking forward to Cairo's very first TAROT 101 workshop, taught by professional Tarot reader Meagan Angus on Sunday, August 9th from 2-5pm. 

In this Tarot 101 class, we will be covering the basics of Tarot, including:

- An overview of the many types of decks available 
- How to choose a deck
- Superstitions and misunderstandings surrounding the Tarot
- Elements that can assist in readings (Crystals, plant helpers, colors etc)
- A brief discussion on the nature of symbolism
- An overview of common symbol sets used in most decks
- A focused look at The Minor Arcana suits
- The Major Arcana - The Good, The Bad, The Enlightened
- The Tarot in comparison to other popular magickal systems
- Common tarot spreads / and a simple cleansing and blessing  

An original workbook for students to take home that will facilitate creating a personal connection with your cards. If possible, please bring your own deck.
 

The modern Tarot is a highly refined set of symbols used by Witches, Magicians, Shamans, Seers, Mediums and Psychotherapists. Proving itself to countless generations as a valuable tool for insight and meditation, the Tarot is seeing a resurgence of interest in people who want an easy way to open a dialogue with their own subconscious, people looking for alternate methods of evoking powerful archetypes for change, and people wanting to open a door into their variant futures.
 

Meagan Angus has been reading Tarot professionally and privately for over 25 years. Self taught, she is influenced by Hermetic Magic, Kabbalah, and Jungian archetypal psychology. She is learning from the Tarot every day, and grateful for the conversation with The Universe. V.I.T.R.I.O.L.

SOLAR POWER // A Summer Yoga Workshop with CARAVAN AGE

Solar energies will be at their peak during this time surrounding the summer solstice, giving us a perfect opportunity to align with and harness that solar power through our yoga practice. As the halfway point during the year, it is also a time to check in with our intentions we may have set around the new year, evaluate what has manifested in our lives, and refine those intentions as we continue on our annual journey around the sun.

This mini yoga workshop and asana practice hosted by Cairo and Caravan Age will incorporate discussion, time for journaling and self-reflection, meditation and breathwork. We will learn and practice several variations on the classic sun salutation during the last hour of the workshop. The workshop is accessible to all levels of practitioner. No prior yoga experience is required.

Rena Luelle is a multi-faceted artist who creates under the name Caravan Age and is one half of the electronic duo Ecstatic Cosmic Union. She has been practicing yoga for eight years and recently completed a 200 hr teacher training program through Lotus Yoga in Columbia City. She currently teaches at Tiger Lily Yoga in Rainier Valley.

Bring a mat, water bottle, and a cushion or blanket to sit on. A workbook will be provided for journaling as well as a crystal and essential oil pairing to aid in your home practice. 

This workshop is $35. Space is limited- please register early to secure a spot. To register, sign up HERE.

Sandal Making Workshop with Rachel Corry

  • Cairo

On Sunday May 3rd learn to make your very own leather sandals with sandal making goddess Rachel Corry of Rachel Sees Snail Shoes (Portland, OR)! 

You’ll explore every step of the sandal-making process, starting off by customizing trusted patterns to suit your own feet and design preferences. Then you will cut and assemble natural vegetable tanned leather, paying close attention to fit. Next you will use shoe cement and brass nails to attach the layers to a foam-rubber sole that will mold beautifully to the curves of your feet over time. You'll leave the final class with your ready-to-wear sandals and they'll develop a darker patina as you wear them!

Simple sandal-making is a great way to get into DIY shoemaking of all kinds. After this workshop, you’ll be able to replicate the process at home, with only a few simple tools.

Workshop is $220, includes all materials on Sunday May 3rd from 12:30-6:30pm. 

You must register by April 19th to gain entry to this workshop. REGISTER HERE. Space is super limited so do not delay! :)

Rachel Corry has been hand-making leather sandals for her brand Rachel Sees Snail Shoes since 2010. She studied with two English shoemakers, Jeremy Atkinson and Sarah Juniper, and used their old world knowledge as a starting off point to developed her own techniques for sandal-crafting. She’s been teaching small groups to make their own footwear for 4 years now at inspiring spaces including Wildcraft Studio School and Gravel & Gold. Rachel’s sandals are designed to be modern and wearable. She loves to share the craft of simple shoemaking! www.rachelseessnailshoes.com
