Additional Details


This Waking the Oracle event is presented in conversation with the Weisman’s exhibition, The Experience of Expression

Co-produced by the Earl E. Bakken Center for Spirituality & Healing, WAKING THE ORACLE COMMUNITY CIRCLES invite participants into a warm-hearted, facilitated space where meaningful connection and dialogue can be had through empathetic listening. With the help of a bit of music, storytelling, and an adaptable gathering space (in the form of a centering well) people are invited to lean-in with the heart-lifting support of the Oracles—surprising and uplifting characters that help us find our way through challenging times, reminding us that we are all Oracles and together we can transform our challenges into fuel for healing and growth.  

What to Expect

Join members of WAKING THE ORACLE in exploring the importance of connection, curiosity and creative expression during distressing times. Participants will have the opportunity to relax in a musical immersion, have food, participate in a community wisdom circle and, if they choose, help to create elements for a WAKING THE ORACLE COMMUNITY ACTIVATION on April 27th. Everyone is welcome. Come as you are.

If you are able to, we encourage you to join us for light refreshments provided by Afro Deli, or bring your own lunch to enjoy, in the WAM Riverview Gallery at 11:30 a.m., prior to the program beginning at noon.
