FLOWER & FARM

with Chef Jeffrey Ozawa of TENZO & Stephen Smith of ONDA

SUNDAY MARCH 24 | TOPANGA

Please join us in Topanga Canyon for an evening of gastronomy, community and conversation.

We’ll gather outdoors for a farm-to-table, sunset dinner overlooking the Pacific Ocean with guest chef Jeffrey Ozawa. Taking inspiration from his Japanese heritage, he’ll create the following array of delicacies infused with organically grown ONDA CBD --

CRUDITÉS WITH MISO DIP

SCOTT RIVER TRI-TIP SALAD WITH OJAI PONZU DRESSING

SMOKED TASMANIAN OCEAN TROUT, SPROUTS, KELP DRESSING

YUZU CARROT SALAD

SESAME KALE SALAD

MIXED RICE BALLS

FRESH FRUIT AND PRESERVES

We believe food is medicine and that it’s important to encourage community dialogue about how we can more consciously approach food production and consumption. With the expansion and revitalization of cannabis culture and plant medicine, their inclusion in the conversation is imperative. Around the table we’ll discuss the politics, ethics, sustainability and vitality of a variety of farm and land practices including how certain ecosystems can truly benefit from the stewardship of holistic ranchers. We’ll also learn about the healing properties of different cannabis products and why it matters where plants are grown, how the soil is treated and how processed.

Locational Astrology for Modern Travel

MERCADO SAGRADO PRESENTS:

Locational Astrology for Modern Travel

with Alexandra Clark of Astrocarto

1 - 5:30pm SATURDAY MARCH 30 | TOPANGA

AstrocartoMAP.jpeg

Join us for an afternoon in the canyon with Alexandra Clark to learn all about Locational Astrology. She’ll discuss its history, why it’s relevant in our digital world and why we feel called to certain cities or cultures even if we have never visited. Learn how to build the life you love, create community, and balance purpose with wanderlust.  

Archaeologists and dowswers have demonstrated the presence of Earth’s ley lines, or meridians. Where they lie and also where they intersect are believed to have higher concentrations of energetic power. One such vortex is in southern England where Stonehenge was built and crop circles often emerge. Although visiting these sites can indeed be potent, it can be more powerful to discover and connect to our own evolutionary portals. We were each born with an astrological map that displays a unique grid which transverses our personal places of power.

Each attendee will receive a personal AstroCartoGraphy Map locating the best regions for personal growth, career expansion and community. Alexandra will share practical tools and guidance on how we can start applying this knowledge within our lives to find and create our most supportive environments.

As the Earth has meridians, so do our bodies. It’s imperative we keep our energy flowing as blockages can lead to dis-ease. One way we can do this is by working with certain sounds or frequencies such ancient tones used by Qi Gong practitioners. Another way is to make sure we’re nourishing ourselves with high vibrational foods such as fresh organic vegetables and fruits. Thus, in support of our afternoon of self discovery, we’ll enjoy light bites by Sakara and close with a custom, sound healing journey by Kassia Meador.

Alexandra Clark

grew up with a love of travel, always seeking to learn more about language, culture, and the unseen forces that tie us all together. While in school for Chinese Medicine, she discovered locational astrology by chance, fascinated by its playful outlook on self-discovery. She now practices with the intent to help people understand there is always a path, reason, and unique timing to life. She uses this modality to help others find a greater sense of where they are, and where they are going. Alexandra deeply believes that you don't need to travel far distances to see all the benefits of Astro/Carto, many of the findings on your map can be applied to everyday life at home.

Let's do it together!

Spirit Speak: Intuitive Development & the Tarot

MERCADO SAGRADO PRESENTS

Spirit Speak:

INTUITIVE DEVELOPMENT & THE TAROT

6–9PM Sunday August 27  |  Topanga CA

This workshop is designed for beginner to intermediate tarot readers. We will start with a quick introduction to tarot, familiarizing ourselves with the major and minor arcana suits. Then we will explore how to develop our intuition by making and interpreting abstract images. We will learn and practice tarot spreads with an emphasis on custom and intuitive spread making. We will also touch upon reversed readings, grounding, protection, and altar making. Other subjects we’ll explore include; how to choose a tarot deck, interviewing a new deck, using oracle decks and how they are different, and using multiple decks in one reading.

The goal is to learn to use our intuition and creative thinking to become better acquainted with tarot. The ancient system of archetypes that is the tarot can be overwhelming. Our approach in this class will be to become empowered in our own authority of what the cards mean to us. We will work together in comparative studies of different decks and partner readings.


The event will be held at a private outdoor location in Topanga Canyon. We’ll enjoy nourishing light bites from chef, Greg Arnold of Santa Barbara's Mesa Verde

Space is limited. Tickets are non-refundable. All are welcome. RSVP below.

Primarily self-taught, Mary’s approach to teaching and reading tarot focuses on creativity and self empowerment. Her workshops explore ways in which we can build trust in our intuition. She believes that everyone has the natural ability to use tarot as a tool for helping themselves and others.
