The rising Spring Sun in the East brings the warmth of a new season. A new tradition to welcome the abundance, fertility, creation, birth, life, and new beginnings. We invite you to join us for an evening of ceremony honoring our mother earth, the elements, cardinal directions, and our community. The Collective is a Naples Lifestyle Concept Center providing over 4,000sq ft of event space for this evening.

 

Carolina will lead us into meditation and sacred mandala creation as we set intentions for this new season. Alessandra will guide us into movement as we stretch our bodies, loosen our joints, and flow with grace. After we are warmed up, we invite in the tribal beats, conscious guided dance, and shaking to release anything that is no longer serving us. Songstress Emilia Garth will bring us back down to the earth and support us in integrating the experience with the frequency of the crystal bowls and her vocal activations. Musicians will share their medicine music to open our hearts and seal the evening with intention.

 

A percentage of our proceeds will be donated back to Participating Non-Profits:

GUADALUPE CENTER



Please Bring:
Yoga Mat & Reusable Water Bottle

FACILITATORS:
 
ALESSANDRA MILENA
Born in Peru to a strong willed mother and witchy grandmother, Alessandra carries her Peruvian medicine woman lineage proudly. Working with limpias, baños, and indigenous rituals since her youth, she has grown up with these traditions ordinarily interwoven into her life. Ale is a Ceremonialist, Moon Dancer from Abuela Ana's Costa Rica Danza and Chanupa carrier.
In 2013 Ale had her oldest son Ivan at home in Naples near the beach. When he was 6 months old, Ale and her partner Ford decided to challenge the mainstream and moved off-grid to Southern Colorado where they dove into their passions of organic vegetable and cannabis farming. This time, in their sweet little mountain home 3 miles from the Rio Nepesta, Ale home-birthed her youngest son Rafe on a cold early-Spring dawn.
Along with alignment, movement, and folk herbalism on her side, Alessandra became a certified Regenerative Detoxification Specialist and has taught workshops, hosted discussions, and community cleanses in Florida, Texas, and Colorado! Cannabis and Hemp educational events are also a passion of Alessandra's as she is able to help bridge the information gap and teach others about this sacred plant medicine that has been stigmatized through prohibition.
Alessandra received her Reiki Level I & II training from mentor Lenka Schulze & Dr. Brian Lee. Ale has organized & hosted Solstice & Equinox Celebrations for her community since 2018. She also hosts Women's Circles, Plant Medicine, New & Full Moon Ceremonies both virtually, at her homestead and now also in South Florida. Ale loves to share about her journey,  how much it has shifted & evolved in her life, and relate through stories of our strengths and struggles as humans.

PARTICIPATING NON-PROFITS

 

Pads 4 Refugees is a grassroots 501(c)(3) nonprofit that supports the dignity of refugee and migrant women and girls by providing feminine hygiene products in humanitarian environments. Currently, feminine hygiene products are not a part of the regular aid or assistance given to refugees by governments and international bodies. The absence of these crucial products present many problems for women such as having to use unsanitary items like leaves, moss, or old rags. Without proper hygiene items, girls are unable to attend school while they are on their periods. We work to support the dignity of women and girls by providing them with the products they need. Despite starting in April 2020 during the pandemic, we were able to raise enough to send 6 months of supplies each to two refugee camps in Greece. Please visit pads4refugees.org for more information or if you would be interested in donating to support refugee and migrant women and girls in need.

Naples Pride is a volunteer based grassroots 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to unite and empower the LGBTQ+ community of SWFL, and to educate and foster social change and equality for all. In 2017, Naples Pride started with a Pride with Purpose Pride Festival to raise funds for an LQBTQ+ Emergency Fund and to have a day to celebrate our achievements, make ourselves visible, and to honor those that fought for LQBTQ+ rights before us. Thanks to the support of the community, allies and businesses, sponsors and participants, volunteers and organizers, young and old alike, in 2020, we were able to open The Pride Center in Naples. It is a safe, supportive space for the inclusive LGBTQ+ community to gather, unite and create change, empower one another, and educate our larger community. The Pride Center provides support groups, health classes, clubs, youth events, and more. Naples Pride also has a Business Alliance Membership program for LGBTQ+-friendly businesses. Please visit naplespride.org for more information, utilize our resources, or donate to our cause.

We are a purpose driven non-profit organization that exists to create possibilities through education for the students of Immokalee fostering personal and academic success leading to economic independence.
We provide high quality educational programs that empower independent thinkers and life-long learners who positively influence their diverse communities and others.
We are a safe, nurturing, trusting, happy and fun environment for students, families, donors, volunteers, and employees, allowing everyone the freedom to find, fulfill, and live their purpose.
We honor and respect all relationships by operating with honesty, integrity, transparency and open communication. We appreciate and recognize the generosity of the people and partners with whom we collaborate and enable us to fulfill our mission.
Invested in what is possible for our Guadalupe Center students and families, we are fearlessly and humbly committed to leading by example, cultivating today’s and tomorrow’s leaders.
Guadalupe Center began as a small soup kitchen at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church. However, volunteers quickly realized there was a greater need. In 1984, a newly formed Board of Trustees registered Guadalupe Center as a 501(c)(3). That’s when volunteers began tutoring non-English-speaking elementary age children in the soup kitchen with the help of local high school students. Over the next two decades, Guadalupe Center formed its three educational programs and began expanding its facilities. Today, we’re reaching more than 1,400 students per year! However, there is still a great unmet need with over 500 students on the waiting list for Early Childhood Education services.
