Tribal Mirrors is an initiation into the world beyond self-importance, into the art of truly seeing the self in order to answer these fundamental questions: Who am I now? Who don’t I want to be? Who do I want to become? This workshop is an invitation to explore the fantastic, otherworldly, and the ancestral through trance-dance, 5Rhythms® movement practice, live music, and ritual theater.
Tribal Mirrors is rooted in exposing everything that gets in the way of being real. It is the foundation for becoming a free-spirited, rebellious, holy actor on the living stage of everyday life. We willingly enter the crowd of characters that dominate our stage, whether servant or star, doormat or dreamer, realist or rebel, mystic or manipulator, and begin to watch how they sabotage our funky, fiery, free spirit. This is our gift to each other, this recognition that we are authentic, spontaneous, creative, vulnerable, wild, amazing human beings.
This is a time to sweat, pray, and remember the source of our magic and mystery. You are encouraged to bring masks, makeup, and costumes to personify and portray the energies you want to let go of and those you want to bring into your life.
