Fools Day Weekend 2023

22 Teachings presents our annual holiday FOOLS DAY – A sublime celebration and gift from our teachers to our amazing students.

Fools Day began as a tradition in 2017 with the Arboretum Mysticum Lodge– celebrated not by pranking and practical jokes, in fact quite the opposite – by doing random acts of kindness.

This year, we are going grand – as we extend the festivities to a 3-day weekend and for the first time ever, host a hybrid event with the opportunity to watch online or come in-person to the school. We have gathered all of our faculty and some incredible special guests to offer you a full weekend of teachings, insights, training, ritual, art, sound, and movement. There will be giveaways and many other surprises as well.

There are 6 different ticket types, A-F, ranging from free RSVP tickets to the Key Pass 3-day all access ticket. Please make sure you register appropriately.

For those attending online Saturday, the ticket is free, just RSVP for the “D” ticket.


Time: Apr 1, 2023 10:00 AM Pacific Time (US and Canada)

2. “Pass it on” by then doing a random act of kindness for someone else.

Drew Linden, Intuitive tattooer 

Drew began tattooing in San Diego, then moved to New York in 2011. They have always loved being with people and connecting with them on a deeper level. Shortly after finishing their apprenticeship, Drew their spiritual remembering, and through working with a healing and spiritual community discovered through the Akashic records that this was not my first life time of being a sacred scribe. I was Reiki attuned by, fellow 22 teachings student, Shannon Leigh O’Neill-Loyola in 2018 and finally in 2022 found my way to the doors of the School. I have worked closely with clients during their tattooing journeys to heal, process trauma and celebrate joys in their lives. I have now brought my tarot practice into my career as a better way to connect and offer clarity to clients.  In 2018 i opened my own studio, The New Moon Studio, in Brooklyn with my best friend and business partner Zoë Bean.
