Pie Pedals is a collective of 15-20 kindred spirits who enjoy food, laughter, music, yoga, acro-yoga, and chilling. Primarily hailing from DC, we've been burning since 2012, and our mission is to serve delicious wood-fired pizza out of our two-oven setup at the most unexpected spacetimes. At the Big Burn (in BRC) our setup is portable, with the ovens usually on wheels and towed by bicycle. At regionals, the ovens remain stationary and are set up as an art installation in and of itself, even when not in use, and definitely a spectacle when pizza-making is in full swing.

Feeling Divine Energy that You Are

Each and every one of us is made up of divine energy. Divine energy is the energy that makes up all life, the earth is made up of divine energy, our bodies, our soul, and when we tune in to this - that we are, we tune into the energy that heals. I am here to help inform others on how to tune into the divine energy that they are; without any effort, simply with the art of allowing.

Scheduled by the Love X TalksLemuria

I am that I am. I choose to be called Lemuria, and I have always had a natural awareness of, what some people call reiki, I see it as divine energy that I actually am. I am able to feel energy with any part of my body, but I use my hands as direct points of giving and receiving energy. I am able to pinpoint origins of pain, clear that point, and pour divine healing energy into it. I have had many different short term teachers in the past, but my greatest teacher is my own intuition and my connection to spirit.

Bring themselves! Where clothes that are comfortable. Just be authentic as you are. 🙂
