Events & Dinners

The Dames Club : Full Moon Gathering

February  19th | Highland Park, CA

The full moon represents the end of a cycle, rebirth, manifestation, and release. The desire we feel to gather with women around the moon cycle is embedded in our code. This time we will celebrate the Full Snow Moon , also known to many Northern American Tribes as the Hunger Moon due to its historical harsh season of scarcity and hard winter condition. This will be a beautiful opportunity to focus on abundance and how to remain in a world where warmth and tenderness are the foundation of our collective fire

Hosted by Gladys Nyoth and Facilitated by Elise Gardo

 What to bring: Snacks, blankets, item to form an alter (this time, we will create an alter right by the bonfire )

It is with uncontrollable excitement that the official Dames Club  2019 Calendar will debut in March 3rd, 2019  and we decided to set the year right by focusing on true solidarity. What does that mean? We are going to working on our solidarity languages to determine how the club can best support us based on our respective preferences when it comes to authentic support throughout the year.

Our Vision

Once Upon A Time We Were One

There was a center: a common space where we came from, at some point in time. We are not talking about Africa, and we are not going on some tangent about the Big Bang Theory… it was something deeper and older than that.

It was a space that combined stories, traditions, various forms of pain & happiness into beautiful cosmic unity.

That space is still present inside and around all of us.

Well…what if we were to physicalize that space into one room, leading ourselves back to this level of connection? Where sharing food and giving homage to our human traits would become part of a re-found tradition that would shatter the daily obstacles separating our world? One world..or I should say…one restaurant.
