“Cellular Splendor” | Ianne Rivera

Saturday 11:45 - 12:45pm

“Cellular Splendor” - a sensual reclamation of pleasure as your ancestral wisdom and Divine birthright. Splendor is defined as a great brightness. In this modern world of distraction, grief, and exhaustion, our light can be easily dimmed. In this immersive Sonic Ritual, sound will be your guide as you journey into the memory of splendor, both inherited and experienced, held within the fundamental essence of your body - your cells, DNA, and energy. This ceremony will encourage you to relieve yourself of the confines of time and claim the ancestral, Divine wisdom alive within you as your infinite source of brilliance.

The Body's Erotic Knowledge: a sensual dance workshop | Che Che Luna

Saturday 2:30 - 3:45pm

This workshop is a space of experiential unfolding, relational interdependence and presencing. The intention of this container is to discover what the body can teach us about our innate erotic energy when we are given permission to listen and be witnessed with compassion. In this container, we are not asking the mind to lead, we are asking the body. Working within the disciplines of eco-eroticism, authentic movement and inherited ancestral knowledge, we will practice building safety in being seen and dive into the liberatory praxis of sensual movement.

We will conclude with our Dalangpan prayers of the four elements which is also represented in the four directions.

Exploring Craftivism | Katie Ruiz

Sunday 4:15-5:15pm

Katie Ruiz's Pompom Project engages the community in a collaborative creative process. Participants are invited to create yarn pompoms that will be installed together in a collaborative artwork. The experience of coming together to create with ones hands and working toward a shared goal promotes investment and pride in the community and shared space.

Already Here: An Ancestral Imagination Activation | Kelsey O. Daniels

Sunday 5:30-6:30pm

How often when we speak of ancestors do we deify them as if they’re larger than life or look at what they went through in pity? Do you ever sit with the power that the same magic that sustained them through hellish experiences is available to you in the here and now? In this space we will use collective music making, meditative writing, and daydreaming to get in touch with the messages of love that are already here for us.
