“The Medicine” Film Screening @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
Dec 14 @ 6:00 pm

Seattle Psychedelic Society presents a one night only screening of “The Medicine”, a Documentary film by Farzin Toussi.

The Medicine reveals the hidden mysteries of one of nature’s most powerful and controversial healing remedies- Ayahuasca. It is a documentary about Amazonian shamanism, introducing Taita Juanito Guillermo Chindoy. Chindoy, both a teacher and student of the sacred plant medicine. As Ayahuasca gains popularity in the West, the film explores the science as well as the lore behind the plant and why it is used to heal. It follows former NFL Safety, Kerry Rhodes, and actress, AnnaLynne McCord, as they drink with the Taita experiencing Ayahuasca for the first time- in its true tradition.

Humanity faces an unprecedented rise in addiction, insecurity and disease- perhaps the cure does lie within the arms of Mother Nature.

After the screening we will have a deep dive Q&A with the director of the film Farzin Toussi.

Tinkergarten Free Trial @ Lincoln Park
Jan 14 @ 10:00 am – 10:50 am

At Tinkergarten, families meet outdoors to connect and learn through play. In this free trial class, Tinkergarten Leader, Alison Arnote, will facilitate an expert-designed play scenario, allowing children of various ages and needs to explore, problem solve, communicate, collaborate, and create together. Parents and caregivers learn, too, as we share insight into your child’s development.

This trial class is:

  • Designed for children ages 18 months-8 years. Child/children are accompanied by an adult. Siblings of any other age are most welcome.
  • Limited to the first 15 families who register.

Kids may get a bit messy (Hurrah!), so please send them in clothing that can get dirty.

We start the class at the specified location but may end within a reasonable walk from that location.

This trial class is free.
