Stressing the body is often done to indelibly print the significance of a ritual. From Kavadi to the Sundance to firewalking, these practices show sacrifice and can be used to achieve transcendence. Discover a bit of the history of body stress rituals and explore how various body modifications and stresses can be used to recreate useful rituals in our lives. We'll even demonstrate a Kavadi style flesh hook ritual and a modern blood ritual in this class. All workshop participants will play an integral and often emotional part in the ceremonies, if desired, although only two people will undergo the actual blood rituals. To honor the sanctity of the rituals please do not enter or leave the room while the ceremonies are being performed NOTE: The rooms include ONE (1) Full Event Ticket if you are a couple you will need to purchase a additional event ticket for the 2nd person.
