Trickster and Shadow – Keys to Transformation

Lotus Yoga Centre

91 Ruapehu Street

View map

Using shamanic journeying, the day explores trickster archetypes, and unearths shadow at play – those blind spots bumped into time and again while continually denying they even exist. Connect with power animals to assist and bring guidance.

Listen in to what hides out in your shadowlands, to bring insight and awareness to your path. Exploring via dreams and stories the trickster animals and shadow creatures that speak to us from deep and patient inner recesses. A surprise package of personal hidden gems to integrate and bring to life.

Boundary Tap & Kitchen

3 Raumati Rd,

View map

Mistress Viv is hitting the Kapiti Coast!

Bitchin' Bingo is bingo, but not as your Nana knows it. Hailing from West Auckland Viv will have you laughing, dancing and desperate to pick from the Bogan Prize Wall. You can expect throw-back jams, mass sing alongs, old skool bingo with some new skool raunchy bingo calls and probably an air guitar competition.
