Stefan Pildes: The Hoop is a Powerful Tool

The hoop is a tool, a very powerful tool. One that can show and make us into our ideal, most radiant version of ourselves.

By offering a means of personal transformation, meditation and physical practice the hoop transformed Stefan Spins into a performer, a teacher, a maker, a community leader.

How has the hoop changed you? Lets have a discussion about the transformative power of this very simple tool and how we can continue to develop into our highest self.


Since 2000, Stefan has been the nexus for all hooping activity in New York City. He has taken the hoop to new heights with his creation: GrooveHoopsâ„¢. Stefan’s unique hoop style and clown training, creates a pleasure for audiences of any age. For the past 15 years, Stefan has taught the GrooveHoops curriculum at events, parties, festivals and gatherings all over the world




Richard Hartnell: Flow Philosophy & Spirituality

Flow Philosophy & Spirituality

Many artists, whether movement artists or not, describe the depths of their practice as “”meditative”” or “”mystical.”” Some days it’s easy to fall into 15-30 minutes of blessed practice in a row, then look at the clock to find that two hours has gone by. What’s going on here? Why does this feel so significant? Why do so many hoopers say things like “”hooping saved my life?””

In this class we’ll look at the literature from ancient spirituality and modern psychology to ask deep questions. How do we find our purpose in movement arts? How and why do we define technique? How do we manage ego in a business that requires us to get on stage and show off how fabulous we are? What is the cosmic significance of the circle… and the circus? No props necessary; egos welcome.”


Richard Hartnell is among the most distinguished American contact jugglers. In 2008, Richard was a co-founder of the Bellingham Circus Guild in northwest Washington State; in 2009, he relocated to the Vulcan, the collective of circus artists in Oakland, California, to perform full-time. A generalist in the style and direct lineage of Michael Moschen, Richard spends most of his time offering classes and performances across the west coast and many pieces of Europe. In the cold season he returns to Santa Cruz to study science, choreograph new material, and teach circus arts at Aerial Arts Santa Cruz.

SoulWash Breathwork is a Spa for your Soul! Developed by Jennifer Sugarwoman, it merges body movement, meditation and breathwork. Be a part of this empowering and powerful circle and release blocked energies .. unlock the doors to inner dimensions .. rejuvenate your tissues .. refresh your Spirit! In our breath flows the stream of possibility for healing, personal growth, spiritual development, creativity, connection to our embryotic intelligence and wisdom that lies deep beyond our rational minds and into our ancient wisdom and healer that lives deep inside our heart and Soul. Through simple diaphragm breathing techniques, breathers dive into non-ordinary states of consciousness to explore and access their inner landscapes. Working with the elements of fire, water, Earth, air and space — we swim into the waters of our deep unconscious to bring back our magical selves and reconnect with our Souls. Through breath, sound, movement, evocative music and resistance work, we move our energy. SoulWash Breathwork allows one to follow and track sensation, emotion, vision and thought. We release the subtle energies of old patterns and beliefs held in our unconscious that prevent us from living into our full potential. The issues in the tissues respond-and release! Transformation happens! It can realign the body and subtle energies and we flow with imagery, grace and embodiment that open doorways to new fields of perception. It brings joy. It brings conscious awareness to the natural flow of energy that we are made from. It restores balance and we thrive. It is inspiraling and empowering and leaves one feeling a deeper connection to Self, to Spirit, to others. It grows a deeper awareness of body, mind and emotions. It is a Spa for your Soul. SoulWash Breathwork is held in a Shamanic container that allows us to be held by Spirit. Bring your flow toys to play and explore!

Chef Mazi: The Circle of Nutrition

From Life to Death, how foods in process help keep us healthy and whole.

Living foods get a lots of attention, but what are they?  In essence, a living food is something that has an active culture.  Many of the places around the world that we think of as “Cultured” are also in the practice of culturing foods: Japan cultures soy products: miso, tamari, tempeh, etc.; the French have an extensive cheese and wine history; Germany, cheese, krauts, and beer.  There is a magic in these livings foods that gives us a biota so complex it is almost worthless to explain the inner workings.  In addition more and more research is pouring in about the end of life, as plant material is broken down by fungus, producing a vast suite of complex chemistry, and amazing health properties of mushrooms.  There is also a magic in these end processes, and if one looks closely, it is hard to distinguish the process of creation from the process of destruction:  It is here that we find super foods, super nutrients and super health!  Join Health Coach and Medicinal Chef Zachary Mazi on this wondrous adventure into the cultures of life and death in food, and get intimate with the circles of super nutrition!
