In Zen Buddhism, meditation provokes vigilance, spirituality, and self-discovery. This workshop will introduce concepts of Buddhism as it relates to martial arts and guide people through a meditation session.
This series presents martial arts and self-defense from the perspective of prioritizing self-care and autonomy for bodies that are under attack – specifically black & brown, queer & trans bodies – and investigating the systems of power and violence that are in place. We present a series of performance art pieces, installations, and workshops that are inclusive, body-positive, and trauma-informed as a way to process these themes and strive toward empowerment.
High Concept Labs Fall Sponsored Artist, Marcela Torres with Stormé Legacy presents this series facilitated by Stormé Legacy collective members Alex Chen, Leila Elaqad, Diana Balitaan, and Myoko Leon. Stormé Legacy is a QTPOC (queer & trans people of color) martial arts collective that fosters an intersectional, trauma-informed, and anti-fascist culture of training.
