Full Moon Swim Series @ Willard Beach
Aug 11 @ 6:45 pm – 7:45 pm
Full Moon Swim Series @ Willard Beach | South Portland | Maine | United States

Monthly Full Moon Celebration + Ocean Dip in South Portland, ME

Welcome to the Two Maine Mermaids Full Moon Swim Series!

Every month we go for a dip on the full moon. Come rain or snow, high tide, low tide, warm days, weekdays or weekends, we gather as a community to bear witness to self, others, and the cyclical rhythms of the earth and her seasons. These dips are a way to meet and celebrate ourselves just as we are in the moment- powerful, wonderful, and wild! They connect us to our bodies, attune us to nature, bring us into community, and spread a whole lotta joy in the process! Come join us for a swim, meet a community of like-minded folk, and laugh a ton. We can’t wait to see you there!

Thursday, August 11th

Willard Beach, South Portland, Maine

Gather at 6:45pm

Ocean Dip at 7:00pm

In the event that we need to cancel due to dangerous weather we will use Instagram to notify attendees so please consider following us @twomainemermaids! If there is rain in the forecast we will still be out there (meet under the overhang of the lifeguard shack/bathhouse near the playground at Willard Beach)!

Two Maine Mermaids will continue to host a range of events that create community, spread joy, and encourage connection with nature. Be sure to sign-up for our e-newsletter, follow us on Eventbrite, or follow us on Instagram to stay up to date!

Silent Sunrise Meditations at East End Beach @ East End Beach, Portland ME
Aug 13 @ 5:00 am – 7:00 am
Silent Sunrise Meditations at East End Beach @ East End Beach, Portland ME | Portland | Maine | United States

Start your summer mornings with a silent mindfulness practice at East End Beach. Find balance as you align yourself with nature’s rhythms.

Upcoming Dates

June 18 / July 2 / July 16 / July 30 / August 13 / August 27

Most mornings, we drag ourselves out of bed only to be thrown into hectic and anxiety-filled routines. Join Kaneel every other week for a soothing morning practice where we’ll experience the gradual shift from dark to light and bathe in the first moments of the summer sun.

During each practice, we’ll come together in silence, just before the sun arrives, using the walk along the beach to slowly awaken the senses and notice our relationship to the land and elements. We’ll then branch off, finding a unique spot that calls to each of us, where we’ll sit and observe the movement and stillness of the land as we take in the panorama of the sun rising over Casco Bay. As the sun illuminates the beach, Davinica will lead a group sharing circle, where our first words of the day will be full of gratitude, acceptance, and community. Being present for our sharing circle is totally optional, and if you’d prefer to stay in silence, we welcome and encourage your presence.

Sign up to receive details about where to meet, what to bring, and news about your session.


IMPORTANT EVENT INFO

  • This event will be held rain or shine.

  • You’re more than welcome to join us between 5 and 6:20 AM, but please arrive in silence.

  • Even though East End Beach does allow dogs, we ask that you leave your pets at home unless you have a service animal.

  • We ask that everyone remains at least 6 ft. apart during our self-guided meditation. During our reflection circle, we ask that everyone wear a mask (regardless of vaccination status) for the physical and psychological safety of everyone in the group.

T’ai Chi at Congress Square Park @ Congress Square Park
Aug 16 @ 9:15 am – 10:15 am
T’ai Chi at Congress Square Park @ Congress Square Park | Portland | Maine | United States

Free Tai Chi Chih/Qigong classes will be taught in Congress Square Park May through September. All classes will occur twice weekly — on Tuesdays from 9:15 until 10:15 am and Wednesdays from 10 until 11 am, led by Sara Leonard.

Old pros and those who have just started practice, as well as curious bystanders of all ages welcome!
Always FREE to the public.
*What’s Tai Chi?*
Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese tradition that, today, is practiced as a graceful form of exercise. It involves a series of movements performed in a slow, focused manner and accompanied by deep breathing.
A noncompetitive, self-paced system of gentle physical exercise and stretching, each posture flows into the next without pause, ensuring that your body is in constant motion.
Tai Chi is low impact and puts minimal stress on muscles and joints, making it generally safe for all ages and fitness levels. In fact, because Tai Chi is a low-impact exercise, it may be especially suitable if you’re an older adult who otherwise may not exercise.health

Movement Mornings Beach Bootcamp & Dip @ Willard Beach
Aug 17 @ 6:00 am – 7:00 am
Movement Mornings Beach Bootcamp & Dip @ Willard Beach | South Portland | Maine | United States

Tomorrow!! MOVEMENT MORNINGS
Beach Bootcamps & Dip
Starting Wednesdays for the next two months Kelsy (Ebb) is going to be hosting free Movement Mornings in the form of beach bootcamps (and a dip!).

Every Wednesday (July 6-Aug 31)
Willard Beach, South Portland, ME
6am-7am

These are for all levels and tailored to individual needs. Kelsy believes that mental health originates in the body, strength supports empowerment, and that movement in community is a radically healing act. Just like our dips you’re encouraged to show up just as you are for these Movement Mornings. Kelsy will introduce exercise options and partner moves ranging from low-impact bodyweight moves to the occasional stations with props (battle ropes, trx, or medicine balls). These mornings will begin with a dynamic stretch and warm-up and end with a cool-down and DIP, of course! Kelsy will also be offering one on one, partner, and small group session spots at Dynamics Fitness for anyone in our Two Maine Mermaids community that wants to continue to build their own movement practice and train together in a supportive group setting. If you are interested in a 1:1, partner, or small group session with a couple of folks from this community (up to 4 people) email –
[email protected] with the subject: MOVEMENT.
