For April’s Luna Ride, “Full Pink Moon”, we will be honoring spring and renewal. April’s full moon name “Full Pink Moon” comes from the “appearance of the moss pink or wild ground phlox – one of the first spring flowers”. Come ride with us! Then share how the year has treated you so far and your plans for spring.
Please also note that the night of April 14-15 there will be a total eclipse of the moon. And then there’s that whole “Blood Moon” thing… So this should be an extra fun ride! Make sure you bring your helmet! And lights! And check your bike!
Meet up at the Florence Blue Line Station in South LA at 7pm and roll out at 7:30pm. End location will be at the MOCA Geffen (Central Ave & First ST). Ride will be around 6/7 miles.

We will be showing ourselves some love by connecting with our spirits, our bodies and the earth in a Radical Uterus Health workshop by Mama Maiz Doula & Herbal Services!!
Meet up Location: Coyolxauhqui Stone ( Miller & City Terrace Dr. Los Angeles 90032)

This workshop presents a sacred moment for you to connect with your body and to Coatlicue (our mother earth). The earth gives us life, in the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink, and the medicine we take. It is essential when taking from the earth we do it only with respect and always give something back. That could be in the seeds we plant or the water we give to nourish the earth, also creating a relationship with the plants they will soon enough begin to communicate what they need. We come from the earth and keeping a connection is essential in creating a healthy way of living, physically and spiritually.
I will inform you on 3 herbs that can nourish your body. My intention is to inspire the idea of bringing herbs back into our daily routine while taking a moment to connect with our bodies using herbal medicine as our ancestors did. These 3 herbs focus on our center energy as womyn and we will take this moment to share our stories in a safe & sacred space. We will discuss any concerns or ask any questions we might have regarding our wombs along with other healing exercises. I hope with sharing my knowledge you will then feel empowered and create a better relationship with yourself and the earth.
