Join us this Saturday, February 2nd, to celebrate this season of returning radiance; gathering as we once did, entering the temple of story and dance, of mythic retelling and oracular wisdom through experiencing the new book Infinite Permission by Wendy Mulhern and myself.
Exploring the confluence of the tender and revolutionary ideas in Wendy Mulhern’s poetry with the fierce and shape-shifting Painted Body ritualistic photography work of Mellissae Lucia, we shall craft a collaborative event embracing the spirit of instinctive freedom.
Portions of the program will be interactive performances speaking directly to your questions about self-authority and embodied knowing. This is a unique opportunity to explore the issues we are all grappling with in a sacred collective container. It is time for all of us to share our brilliance; we need each of our voices to guide us into the New Reality.
Along with Wendy Mulhern and Mellissae Lucia, the event will feature fellow artists and apprentices to the mystery Virginia Carhart Headt, Bruce Haedt, Maryann Schumacher, Edward Mulhern, Kiymbah Tytania, and Kenny Telesco as magicians of ceremonial delight.

Let the body rapture
lead you out
beyond the tentacles of words
beyond the weights and measures of the mind
the body knows it loves, it doesn’t care
about constraints of boxes and conditions
doesn’t need permission
doesn’t need directions
has its own affection
makes its own connection
precisely tuned to every move and glance
The body rapture knows
love is pure enough to move you
in the deep perfection
of the dance.
