A Conversation and Reading with David Fenton

Sunday, November 27th 2pm-3pm

A visionary activist, Fenton has been the driving force behind some of the most important and history-making campaigns of the last 50 years.

Part rollercoaster memoir, part practical guide, The Activist's Media Handbook provides an essential toolkit for today’s activists for organizing to win: how to tell your story, captivate audiences, and inspire them to join the cause.

Complimentary Rune Readings with Jessica Superball

Every Sunday from 12 pm - 3 pm

The word “rune” means mystery, whisper, or secret. Rune reading, also called rune casting, is a form of divination: an oracle-reading system in which the reader consults stones or chips marked with symbols, to offer or gain perspective regarding situations or questions. Trained in the methods of dreaming expert Robert Moss, she can also help with dream interpretation. 

Jessica performs readings with her own handmade set of runes of the Futhark runic alphabet, which dates back to ancient Germanic and Nordic tribes.

To learn more about runes and rune reading:
