Performance: Tattfoo Tan, New Earth Ceremony
Studio A2, Upper Level
Artist Tattfoo Tan invites you to join him in a ceremony to ground and engage yourself within the universe. This workshop has limited capacity and RSVP is required. Click here to RSVP.
Heal the man in order to heal the land. When we know who we are and why we are here, we will be grounded and able to engage in the play of the universe. We will be able to see the invisible thread which links all our internal decisions (thinking, action, feeling) and our external decisions (food, job, health, housing, human right, ecology). In the process, we will transform the egocentric “I” to the love supreme “I AM.” Although participants will not be transformed in a single ceremony, a seed is planted. Please bring a memento to introduce yourself.
