Mystic Lyon and Emily Sloan are pleased to host “2020 Visions: Turn of the Decade Community Dream Nap” on Sunday, December 29 at 2pm. Pillows and blankets will be available on a first come first served basis. Doors will close at 2:10pm to avoid unsettling the nap time. Doors will reopen at 3pm. Participants are also encouraged to bring their own favorite pillows, blankets and journal or sketchbooks.
Mystic Lyon is located on the corner and Lyons Avenue and Mystic Street in Houston’s historic Fifth Ward neighborhood at 5017 Lyons Avenue, Houston, TX 77020.
From organizer, Southern Naptist Minister and Naptician, Emily Sloan: “This will be a time to tune in together and surprise ourselves. Surrealist artist Salvador Dali is an inspiration for the process we will experience.”
