True Serenity Tuesdays

Words from Facebook:

Tuesday June 9th Come by any time between 9pm and 1am for Collective Community Tuesdays.

Tuesdays are Guided and Organized by Sophia Seeramlal owner of Sophia’s Soul Care and Tara Chiavetta owner of True Serenity

Tuesdays have blossomed into something so wonderful. The one word I can use to describe Tuesdays is LOVE. Its a Free night open to the community to come be yourself, connect with others, meet someone new, share, let go, and feel safe, like being at home with close family and friends.

We ask you to come as you are and bring with you who you want to share time with. Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls are available to play as well as tuning forks. Please bring instruments to play and share, we always like to get things started by a nice circle of sound, tuning into ourselves and each other knocking out any static still blocking us from the day.

This is held every other Tuesday at True Serenity.If you want to bring and share any food or snacks with the group that is appreciated and welcomed.

Also, don’t forget your Love Jug so you can refill it with your favorite Kombucha by LivingKombucha.

Thank You!

See You Tuesday 🙂
