Where:  at the Juice Truck’s beautiful new store front on 5th (near Ontario)

“The body is our forest, our jungle, the “outlandish” expanse in which we are invited to let go of everything we think, allow ourselves to be stripped down to our most irreducible person, to die in every experiential sense possible and see what, if anything, remains.”
