About the event
Over the past centuries, much of our human societies have come under a system of domination, developed and controlled by uninitiated men. Men who have not been guided through a rite of passage into proper adulthood, where they recognize their place in the great dance of life.
Within this trance, what are considered “masculine qualities” (rationality, competition, power) have come to be the most highly prized, and rewarded. “Feminine qualities”such as collaboration, emotional intelligence (EQ) and compassion have been diminished as less worthy, and have denied the expression of different kinds of power and beauty that are potent medicine needed for these times.
This July, we will weave storytellers, musicians and poets in response to the question: what power lies within the heart of the feminine?9am Opening / Pulxaneeks & Tonye 9:30am | Klasom Satlt'xw Losah (Rose Henry) 10am Leah Lamb (Storyteller) 11:30am Niema Lightseed (Spoken Word) 12:00am Yaima (Musician) 12:30pm Ash Arising (Movement) 12:45pm Lyla June (Spoken Word) 1:15pm Break 1:45pm Maya Luna (Spoken Word) 2:15pm Zhenevere Sophia Dao (Storyteller) 3:30pm Safiya Labelle 4:15pm Hannah (Spoken Word) 4:30pm Shay Au Lait (Movement) 5pm Closing Harvest / Pulxaneeks & Tonye
