RIGHT / NOW POP-UP:
Transforming Poison into Medicine
Atlas Tea + Apothecary founder and curator PaizLee shares her journey through visual and performing arts, education, food, social justice, community building, offering insight and process through visualization, writing, intention-setting and sound.
Espasol de Japon is the featured small bite for this session; a peace mochi inspired by Filipino & Japanese flavors to honor her late Great-Uncle, Senen Asuan, MD, painter and former leader of a guerilla fighting unit (The Suicide Squad) during World War II, as a way to heal ancestral trauma brought on during the Japanese occupation in the Philippines. The twenty-four reconstructions of jewelry pieces from Imelda Marcos’ Hawaii Collection by Abad & Jones is also a topic for this session, as PaizLee recalls stories from her youth in Manila before the People Power Revolution. Stretch time through tea and experience the Soul Sync meditation to close.
This event is free but RSVP is required.
