Community Workshops

We know the healing power of community firsthand.

It's often through group experiences that we learn the depths of compassion (for SELF and others) and we discover our core commonality.  We find support and encouragement in the mirror of others.

Come down to the round table at Porta Alchemica and join us for laughter, learning, and love! 

Ecstatic Dance at Kester Homestead


We are thrilled to be offering monthly ecstatic dances at the Kester Homestead - a gorgeous barn venue that typically hosts weddings run by the most lovely family from our Skaneateles community who own The Local Branch.

Eliza has brought her Dancing Freedom medicine to Buffalo, NY where she founded a weekly dance community in 2016 that is still thriving today.  Now it's time to land this powerful, fun, community healing modality in the Syracuse area!

Join us on the second Tuesday of each month this summer from 7 - 9 pm at the Kester Homestead for an evening of live DJed beats, movement, and explore the magic of your own body.

There are no steps and your cannot do it wrong.

DJ Elixza is a Jedi of the Juice. She is on planet earth to savor the lushness of NOW through the vehicle of her voluptuous spacesuit. You’re invited on a lightspeed journey of tantilizing textures & bouncing beats. Follow her down the rabbit hole into the next dimension of your own awesomeness.

The Kester Homestead is a gorgeous barn venue that typically hosts weddings run by the Vossler family from our Skaneateles community who own The Local Branch.

GET WILD with the full moon on second Tuesdays of each month this summer from 6:30 - 10 pm. There are no steps and your cannot do it wrong. Just show up and get down.

You can bring art supplies or flow toys if you wanna get creative in your own way.
