Lab Intent
We will be sourcing ancestral currents in the body and their expression through movement, sound, and ritual. Each of us will also work with a simple song (with or w/o lyrics), a short prayer or poem chosen from our ancestral heritage to combine with our source work. In addition, we will build personal ancestry altars to help focus our intention. The day after our fifth Sunday night indoor session, we bring our work outdoors -- into the woods and near the river -- for three days and two nights.
NOTE: There's also mandatory 90 minute pre-Lab meet-up Sunday July 2nd at 2pm, Antero & Sylvi's house to go over more details and the specific orientation of this Ancestors' Lab (which differs from any previous Lab presented in Portland).


Our campsite includes a flat ritual dance area (with a fire pit!) surrounded by a forest
