Brought the Existential Action Temple to help celebrate Sunset Sound Systems 10yr anniversary in Belden Town.
I put this video together to share some of the feels! Take a look at what was created. Hope to see you in the next Temple
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.

Wanna dive a little deeper, follow the threads below!
Upon visiting the site five months earlier to survey the land and envision the possibilities, I was inspired to create a Tea Tree House in these trees. Here it was manifested! I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to have so many cool humans collaborating with me to make this dream a reality. I watched the sunrise 6 out of 7 mornings in there. Keeping the tea hot & flowing getting everyone tea drunk or offering a goodnight tea kiss. I learned here in this little house that every tea sit will be different, I can only surrender to the moment and not be attached to everyone having the experience I want them to have. That each sit will be unique and I must not fight the flow. I can be present, authentic, equanamis.
The Existential Action Team’s Founders and Artists Damon Soule and Sparkles Positron designed and led a team of talented artists and crafts workers to create a village centered on a week long live collaboration with Artists Mars 1, Damon Soule, Oliver Vernon, Nome Edonna and David Choong Lee. Its been over a decade since these artists first began collaborating, over the years these five artists have had the opportunity to create and collaborate in front of a generation hungry for inspiration.
Going beyond the boundaries of the studio into the open air under the sun the stars the rain and now their second eclipse. The environment created for the Oregon Eclipse was inspired by love! By remembering a time of innocence when we dared to dream and those dreams carried us to the tree tops, to a mystical village of interwoven forts and swings, a tea house with potions & elixirs, the hearth, music, a jam room, creation unfolding before you, laughter and tears, play and creating all under a total Solar Eclipse what better medicine!
We believe in creating environments that balance both the Feminine and Masculine energies while honoring the elements. We strive to create spaces that are personal, that acknowledge all senses and that can transport you into an altered state of consciousness while feeling safe and supported. We want to inspire and bewitch!
I worked all summer on this project, I assembled a team of women to collaborate with me, I got to lead them as we worked all summer to create this womb space that was situated underneath the Furtherrr Amphitheater at the Symbiosis 2015 gathering. The Wizard dudes were on stage inspiring a generation by alchemizing their pigments into interdimensional portals bewitching & inspiring. We ladies were down in the womb holding “Space” ;} Spinning our own magic!
Simon and I were collaborating on this piece. She and I had met on 420 that year while at an intimate gathering with Alex & Allison Grey. Allison had suggested I might experiment with creating totems from the roadkill I’d been working with. I kept that in mind.
A few days later I had a vision of Simone and I collaborating at Symbiosis. I knew I wanted to contribute to the gathering and now I had the vision of an offering. I met with her and after an afternoon, we’d come as far as committing to fleshing a frozen deer hide, stretching it on this frame I would make, she would paint on the rawhide and I would weave around the edges.
As things progressed and the Furtherrr stage came together an opportunity arose for me to take over the underside of the amphitheater. Calling upon and assembling old friends and new, we worked all summer to create this space. We didn’t have any exact measurements so we created elements to flesh out whatever space we were given.
We created an Herb alter with hanmade herbal & medicinal remedies, offered Tea sevice, and a live collaboration, weaving & painting. Disco Primitive as Simone suggested. I loved that interpretation!
This project could not have manifested with out the Devine Feminine and Masculine energies working together symbiotically dancing and weaving the magical threads that cultivated these dreams into reality. So grateful to witness and co-create with such an awesome family!
Surrealist Tea Party! This was an experiment on the feather river, a week before we loaded up our home and drove it to Oregon to live on site for a month to build the eclipse installation. We parTeaed with the Sunset Family. The structures were a collaboration between myself Damon Soule, Snowbroth and Miss moth.
