O ♥ M, Season 5 is here! Let's get cozy at Awakenings Wellness Center Studio every First Friday! We've added ONE MORE MIC to the line up! # 6 will happen on April 6th.

♥ We never know what folks will share at Open Heart Mic! Performances can range from deeply moving to side-splittingly hilarious. Being offered in an intimate setting generates a powerful relationship between the performers and the audience.

♥To get ON THE LIST to perform, requests must be sent by email to: openheartmic@gmail.com. Feel free to request ahead for any month that you desire! Remember that the list is usually filled by the night of the event.

♥ Bring your Friends! Snuggle seating available!

Your Happy Host,

  • Bring It. Something I learned at Burning Man over the years is the spirit of Bring It. What that means is that you come to events and life with a sense of bringing things and yourself in a way that will enhance the place/event you're going to. That will make it special. This could be bringing some delicious food or treats - or, it could mean practicing whatever you're doing that one extra time to make sure it's mighty fine. I've been trying to practice this for years, and I want to bring it :) To you. See you soon. Love, Albert Kaufman PS - if you haven't seen DANCE NAKED PRODUCTIONS! latest at Clinton Street Theater. There is one luscious show left on Valentine's - Go! To put you in the spirit.
  • It was a lovely night on Friday. I would love to see some of your beautiful faces at Tea & Tales next Sunday, February 11. The stories I'm telling will be Scheherazade of the Arabian Nights, Shakti Peeths or how the most sacred Shakti temples in India came from Shakti's body parts - as told to me by my Tantra teacher, Rashmi, who comes from a long Tantric family lineage, and an excerpt out of Ella Bandita. So come join us! I'm excited for this night! https://www.facebook.com/events/587923934873016/

  • There were some requests for these 2 quotes from my offering tonight: “We fall mindlessly into the delusion that we can live a life of sincerity without vulnerability." “Love is fostering an exquisite sensitivity and benevolent concern for the needs and feelings of self and others, which blends the duality between heart and theory, soul and intellect.” Thank you for listening.
  • Anyone from the east side willing to give a ride? I am at 63/Glisan.
  • Here's Hoping that Everyone's <3 M on Friday, Jan. 5th - there are spots left on the list, so send your email request to : openheartmic@gmail.com!
