EXISTENTIAL ACTION TEMPLE
Water, Earth, Air, Fire you are the vessel. Let us open our hearts. Surrender to the inner exploration, the watery depths of our souls evolution. Releasing our fears & expressing our innermost truths. Together, infinite reflections, compassion flows. We are here to witness to integrate release & renew. Death & resurrection in a moment of full bloom, with true strength we soften within the temple. A warm cup of tea in hand, a smile to melt away the chill of deep isolation. Healing hands invite us to come home to our bodies, these celestial vessels that allow us to experience a dynamic spectrum of pleasure & pain. Let us celebrate with reverence through connection the Divine Comedy that we call Life.
As long as one possesses the great health, (pain, suffering & tragedy) are to be not only welcomed but worshipped as the great stimulator of life. We will only grow stronger through the accidents that threaten to destroy us.The heights one scales when one is able to look into the dreadful abyss of life, to experiment with the most painful thoughts and the most extreme form of nihilism, and still be able to emerge from such depths and affirm life saying yes to it in its totality is arguably the highest state a human being can attain.

THE EXISTENTIAL ACTION HOSTS ARE:
Existential Action Tea
Artist, Performer, Experience Creator
The journey of life can break you open, push you to your edge so you can see what lies ahead or beneath the surface layers, going deeper, breathing into the shadow and with the will you may emerge stronger, lighter, illuminated with more tolerance, allowance, love & acceptance. Other times the journey teaches us through serving others, foregoing our own astral metaphysical scuba expedition & creating an opportunity to hold someone in need when they’re ready to come up for air. A warm cup of tea in hand, a smile to melt away the chill of deep isolation. I love creating environments that balance both the Feminine and Masculine energies while honoring the elements. I am a creator a hunter & gatherer I hunt & gather knowledge, love & experience, materials & wisdom to sustain to thrive & to inspire. As a human, artist and co-creator of the Existential Action Team, I strive to create spaces that are personal, that acknowledge all senses and that can transport any being into an altered state of consciousness one that reminds us of our interconnectedness, while feeling safe and supported. My aim is always set to inspire and bewitch!
