The Body Tribal
Embracing the Tribal, Back to the Primitive
Friday Aug 6th - Sun Aug 8th, 2010
Our Perception of
Our Bodies and Each Other as Temple and Tool for the Exploration of
Spirit in Ritual.
Ironically, as people walking a spiritual path, it becomes easy to begin to regard our miraculous living bodies and their transformations as symbolic: even though many of us may make an effort to be more aware of our physical rhythms, to eat better food, to take better care of ourselves, our efforts amount to little more than ritualistic barriers between ourselves and the realization that we are growing oldthat we are, in fact, dying.
The Body Tribal is a synthesis of individual bodies, beating hearts, dancing feet--all joined together to celebrate life as it is. With no expectation or goal greater than joining with our brothers and sisters, our elders, our youngers, we, The Body Tribal, will be able to experience epiphanies of the flesh.
So, come join with us as we meet our bodies, celebrate their processes, and join together to support and sustain each other as we meet, celebrate, mourn, and experience life in living flesh and bone. Stand on your own two feet, be moved by your own pulsing heart. Become The Body Tribal.
In Between the Drums and the Darkness
lies The Body Tribal.
