The first BRAVE SPACE of the new year will take place on Sunday, March 24th. Before regularly scheduled Sunday matinee, for The Island in Winter or, La Isla en Invierno from 10am-11:30am. Our invited guests will be welcomed to The Vault, and offered the chance to tell us their stories, to lift their voices, and give us all the benefit of their lives, and experiences. Our attendees are asked to give these voices their full attention, to be present, and to listen with love, respect, and kindness. We do not expect, there will be discussions or an opportunity to engage in questions and answers. Instead, the intention is to give our space over 100% to hearing and listening; what we do with what we hear is up to us.
