We’ll spend some time, in the beginning, connecting and grounding, work on a few projects, enjoy a variety of vegan dishes, and meet a few residents.

Each Workday we’ll have a list of possible projects depending on priorities and weathers. Tasks include things like painting, trimming bushes, mowing, scooping poop, and more.

You will need to reserve your spot, as we limit the size to 10 each month.

Once you’ve signed up you’ll receive a reminder email Thursday before the workday with weather/info updates too.

Fri
Fri, Jul 12, 2019 6:00 PM - Fri, Jul 12, 2019 8:00 PM @ 16 Park Community Center

This Afrofuture Friday, we will be exploring the instances of black people in animation good and bad through time. Looking at episodes from well know series and a few new ones coming down the line. The Boondocks, Afro Samurai and more.

We will discuss how anime has influenced black culture since its introduction to the US. We will also explore how black people in animation have been used as a narrative medium to examine many histories, issues, or speculate futures. We will debate, dissect and learn whether animation has any role to play on exploring the black experience in America and abroad and if yes, what other potential ways can it achieve that end.

Check out this short of an upcoming animated series directed by Black UK animator, Wesley Louis:

The 6th Annual Breathe Festival

Our Mission

Discover your purpose. Awaken our world.

We as the Breathe Community believe every individual has a higher purpose. Alongside Mother Nature we manifest an environment for each individual to discover that higher purpose, write their own story, and achieve their highest potential.

Community

We as the Breathe Community foster an environment filled with belonging, compassion and love. Through acceptance and respect for all cultural backgrounds, religions and associations, we dissolve the barriers between the seen and the un-seen revealing a community that is whole, inter-connected and free.

The Jelly

We as the Breathe Community are anchored by the balancing of mind, body, and human spirit.

Mind

Through the selfless service of sharing our passions as teachers we build confidence, initiative, and connection. As students we gain new perspectives, inspiration and sparks to take with us on our journey. As the butterfly effect takes hold, we as students and teachers alike join together illuminating a path towards greater purpose.


Body

Through physical practices we challenge our own belief system of what our bodies are capable of. These physical practices prime our bodies so we can more fully receive, absorb and integrate the intellectual & spiritual spectrums of Breathe.


Human Spirit

Through giving and receiving without expectation we understand all is connected and that the human spirit is the Jelly that forms a lasting meaningful connection between all of us here at Breathe. This spirit manifests itself in everything we see, feel, touch, taste and hear at Breathe.
