Tucked inside what was once known as the Barbary Coast of San Francisco lies this little area that was once the most wicked, wanton and wild of that famous coast - “the Devils Acre” as some might say. It has been the chosen area for drink, dance and debauchery from the gold rush days through to the Beat Generation. Named for this area the enchanting bar and cocktail lounge, @thedevilsacre captures the spirit of those bygone days with warm and inviting decor, bartenders wrapped in leather aprons, and a great selection of gold rush era cocktails and other must try libations. The Devil’s Acre is a must stop when you are in North Beach!
“Only to the extent that we expose ourselves over and over to annihilation can that which is indestructible in us be found.” ~ Pema Chödrön
With so much destruction occuring here in Northern California, around the state and globe it is important to resource yourself- to feel into a sense of ground and support from your breath. As yoga teachers, we teach the importance of the breath and last week brought difficulty in breathing fully due to smoky air. Use this short meditation (link above) to help reduce feelings of anxiety in only a few minutes. I hope it helps- lemme know how it goes.

We live in a time of transformation. Many prophesies have been shared that in these next few years we as a human family will be challenged & asked to make new choices around our present paradigm. When times of great intensity arise is when we are called to create solutions based in reverence to the natural world. Mama Gaia is calling us to step out of our individualism & into more collective sharing.
Sharing of resource, song, dreams. My heart & prayers go out to all affected by the fires & sit daily in group meditation to bring cooling energy & abundance of generosity to those whom are in need the most. When you feel alone, hopeless or just numb....
Reach out, meditate, sing, dance, cry. In our most vulnerable states of this human experience we are potent conduits of love. #fire#california#northwest#socal#norcal#lightworkers#meditation#community
After shit got real. Apologies for the language, but Friday might have been the scariest day for us so far at #Estate8 . The fires had moved down into the canyon behind us, winds picked up and shifted east, the hillside disappeared, and the smoke and ash was intense. The sheriff flew over and sounded a siren at us as burnt leaves and charred pieces of debris started falling from the sky. We filled everything with water and hooked up the fire hose in preparation to start stomping out embers. Thankfully it never got to that point so when the winds changed back, we did what we do best at @onehope and had a glass of wine 🍷😂 // The fight still continues in the hills behind our vineyard, but we're feeling better with each passing day. Thanks again for the continued love and support. ❤️ #latergram#napafires#napastrong
