About Melissa: Melissa O’Boyle is a Seattle artist and designer currently working in the textile medium of macrame with designs inspired by nature and geometry.  She moved to the Northwest in 2010 having spent most of her life in Georgia.  Receiving a BFA in 2005 from University of Georgia, her focus was in traditional film photography.  Her experience varies from alternative forms of photography, photographic experimentation on fabric, pinhole photography,printmaking, paper-making, book arts, jewelry-making and metalwork.  She studied in Cortona, Italy in the summer of 2004 and has taken continuing education courses at Pratt Fine Art Center in the Central District of Seattle.  

Melissa was first introduced to macrame as a jewelry-making technique in the late 90’s.  Fifteen years later, as styles and trends re-enter modern culture, she has picked it up again on a much larger scale.  Melissa's work was on display in West Elm in the summer of 2014 as a featured local artist and was commissioned to make large wall hangings for both residential spaces and commercial spaces.  For Melissa, the creative process is a way to awaken the spirit and offer therapy from our busy day to day lives.  Macrame especially can provide an easy outlet and is meditative by nature. She wants to give individuals without formal training access to the joy of not only creating something beautiful and unique, but also a skill they can expand upon.

Lunar Eclipse Yoga // Workshop with Caravan Age Yoga at Cairo

  • Cairo

On Sunday October 5th Cairo is hosting a yoga workshop from 4-6pm. This workshop is an opportunity to delve into the more cosmic and metaphysical aspects of yoga through a discussion of the upcoming total lunar eclipse--or blood moon--in relation to yoga philosophy and ayurveda. The session will also include a yoga practice designed to get you in touch with the lunar energy and allow you to work with it on the physical, energetic, and psycho-spiritual levels as you head into the eclipse period. Led by Rena Luelle of Caravan Age Yoga, the workshop will provide a chance to pause, reflect, and set a clear intention for the eclipse--which takes place on October 8th--and the changes it may usher in, individually and for the collective. The small group setting will provide a safe, supportive space to explore our shared connection to the cosmic event that is about to occur. Prior experience with yoga or meditation is helpful, however, the workshop will be accessible for all.

Rena Luelle is an artist and designer who works under the name Caravan Age. She also makes music and performs in the duo Ecstatic Cosmic Union. Rena began practicing yoga eight years ago and has found yoga to be integral to her development as an artist and human. She completed her 200 hr teacher training through Lotus Yoga in June and is now teaching yoga to kids and offering Caravan Age Yoga sessions and workshops at various venues around Capitol Hill and on the south end.

Please bring a yoga mat and wear clothing that allows you to move freely.

Workshop is $35 and includes a workbook with a yoga sequence, pranayama (breathing exercises), and meditation suggestions (including mantra and mudra repetition) for practicing at home. A limited number of sliding scale spaces are available. Please contact rena@renabussinger.com to request a sliding scale spot.

Preregistration is required and space is limited. The last day to register is Saturday October 4th. Please send $35 via paypal to rena@renabussinger.com or swing by Cairo to pay in cash only.

Thank you and we hope to see you there!
