October 21st, 7pm – 9pm
Los Angeles, Pieter Performance Space
Queer Ancestors Rite is open to everyone and this time, will call forth to the altar Xochipilli and Xochiquetzal the Mexica goddex of medicines, flowers, lovers, sex workers, two spirits, art, music, dance and sex. The two goddex are twins and parallels. This is an exploration to strengthen and balance this side of us in a collective manner.
We will explore with ritual insight through the ancient practice of spontaneous divination facilitated by Edgar Fabián Frías, MA and the integrative Huarache Constellation developed by Yunuen Rhi, MA. Spontaneous Divination is an ancient practice shared by many cultures worldwide and allows the individual to access other realms and contact guides and ancestors. The Huarache Constellation process has been developed by Yunuen Rhi and is inspired by the Zulu side of Family Constellations and the Poetics of Maria Sabina, Mazateca priestess of the mushrooms.
This workshop is presented in collaboration with The Golden Dome, an autonomous educational and curatorial platform dedicated to studying intersections of art, metaphysics, and ecology.
