Organizations Woven Psyche Has Worked With:
With a background in dance, Alison Waldman is a yoga facilitator who provides workplace and community wellness through yoga, mindfulness and movement, and focuses on bringing these services to nontraditional students and spaces. Alison is RYT-200 certified, has over a decade of experience as a body practitioner, and has been collaborating with other organizations in the DC area since 2011.
CASS is an amazing DC area non-profit that combats street harassment and assault. CASS is behind the prolific “You Deserve to be Respected” campaign you have likely seen while traveling in the Metro. It also provides anti-harassment training at bars and restaurants, increases public awareness, and advocates for policy changes.
Common Room Studio is an airy, light filled venue in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria that is available for photo shoots, private events and classes and workshops. It is woman-owned and super cute.
Colony Club is a Petworth neighborhood coffee house slash curated bar with a clean, contemporary vibe. It’s great for events and is host to a number of cool workshops and programs.
Located in Shaw, Dacha is one of the hippest beer gardens in the DC area. In addition to its beer garden area, it boasts a gorgeous, rustic loft and event space that is amazing for hosting events and workshops of all kinds.
Distill Creative was started in D.C. by two sisters who liked sipping cocktails and making crafts together at home. They now bring craft workshops and other creative experiences to the masses in three cities.
Kim Pendleton is a women’s studies professor, women’s empowerment coach, vision boarding guru, entrepreneur extraordinaire, and dear friend. I would never have started Woven Psyche without Kim’s encouragement and business savvy, and I love co-hosting activities and events with her.
Priscilla of the Lavender Junkie promotes the art of sensuous living through embodiment practices. Her mission is to help women overcome feelings of disconnectendess and disembodiment and to lead them into a place of sensuousness and a feeling of being totally in their bodies.
The Lemon Collective is a small, woman-run art and workshop space in the Petworth neighborhood of D.C.
Little Salon is one of the coolest events you can possibly attend in D.C. It brings old school salon performances by different artists to a different home in a different D.C. neighborhood every month. If you’re hoping to catch burlesque belly dancing, a reading by a local science writer, stand-up comedy, amazing visual art, free samples from local breweries, and Bulgarian choir singing all in one evening, Little Salon is the place for you.
Shop Made in DC is a retail+cafe operation featuring a diverse selection of DC artisans and chefs. While the shop features lots of DC themed swag, it’s also a go-to destination for handcrafted jewelry, pottery, accessories, candles, cocktail supplies, greeting cards and kid stuff. Shop made in DC also hosts a variety of workshops and events designed to foster a sense of local community.
