The Flowjo

Founded by Julia Hartsell in 2011, The Flowjo is a renovated warehouse space in downtown Carrboro that has become a sanctuary for an inter-generational community to gather for a variety of embodied practices, ritual and healing. After nearly a decade of service, we are undergoing a massive restructuring in an attempt to preserve our practice space and deepen into sacred service. 

If our work, or our weekly services such as Ecstatic Dance, seasonal grief ceremonies, quarter/cross-quarter observances & ritual dances resonate with you, consider becoming a sustainer so we can keep our urban home. The Flowjo will also continue hosting youth programs, aerial arts, community gatherings & embodied practices such as Yoga, Contact Improv, TransYoga, Queer Ecstatic Dance & Hoop Dance. Your contributions make all these possible.
