12 Days of Mindfulness / FREE Workshops

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. Revlt.

The holidays can be a stressful time, and sometimes we lose sight of the need to practice self-care. At Rebellion Rising, you have a place to allow the noise of the outside world to fall away as you quiet your mind and allow your heart to lead the way! During this time of year, we open our doors and offer our community the chance to sample the kinds of art and mindfulness classes that are the hallmarks of our studio.

We know that not everyone can afford to access these workshops. To that end, the teachers at Rebellion Rising have come together to offer an intentional, purposeful contribution toward making this art and mindfulness accessible to everyone by offering this series of free workshops.
