114 W. 4th St., Los Angeles, CA 90013
Join us for an interactive workshop that pulls from indigenous practices. Artists and educators Olivia Chumacero and Sarita Doughterty will lead participants through exercises in breath, sound, meditation and plant-work to stimulate a connection with the self, the planet, and the beings we cohabitate with.
This workshop is open to all and is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Rigo 23: Ripples Become Waves. The exhibition will be open during the program. All Beta Main exhibitions and programs are FREE.
I’m walking through sage-filled paths and obsidian-cut winds. My life’s energies have taken me to the four corners of our home planet. My muses feed me a diet sustained in awe and gratitude. I’m open to dialogue and actions that hold human beings responsible for the state of our mother Earth. Respect, reciprocity and responsibility is the blood memory coursing through me, a two-legged being, member of the human tribe. Olivia Chumacero is the founder of Everything is Medicine.
