Now the longest currently running Asian American mic series in the country, TNC highlights new work in visual and performing arts from the Los Angeles and Asian American artistic community in Los Angeles’ Little Tokyo. Join us for our landmark 20th season at one of the longest running free public arts series' in downtown Los Angeles.
I'm directing a theater skit with Long Beach residents that will be performed at LB People's State of the City 2018. It's an incredibly inspiring event put on by community organizers addressing current issues such as environmental justice, housing displacement, immigration, education, hotel workers' rights, and so much more!!! As quoted by Audre Lorde, "There is no thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives." I've been involved in this event for the past several years as an artist/speaker, though it brings me joy to see others get on stage for their first time to tell their stories. Every year, at least 500 people show up ready to be heard and take action. This year's theme is around "Denial," which is what I'll be shaping this script around.

Did you know that the choices you make now will manifest in your uterus as you grow older? This goes way beyond diet, but the thoughts you consume and the environment you're in. Especially since I've transitioned out of my 20s, I've noticed so much trauma from my childhood surface that I thought had already been dealt with. No matter how many hospital visits I had, it still was not addressing the root cause. That's why I'm super excited to bring my sister Monisha Colon Hydrotherapist of Moya Body-Care (a badass elder who looks BOMB) to share her work around uterine health, especially through healing the gut. I've also been overwhelmed by the number of detox programs available, but Monisha gets straight to the point and caters to each body type.
$25 for 3 hours worth of information that could save your life vs a $10,000 hospital bill. We'll just be scratching the surface, but it's a start. :)
Yoni = Sanskrit word for "sacred place", a flower to bloom, the beginning of consciousness, portal into the cosmos, or more commonly known to westerners as "Vulva".
Join Monisha Colon Hydrotherapist (Owner of Moya Body-Care) andJune Kaewsith (aka Jumakae) for a deep dive into womb wellness. This workshop is about prevention as well as alternative remedies to soothe common symptoms. We will dive into root causes of our imbalances and share our personal journeys of healing.
Topics to be explored include:
-Identifying spiritual + physical imbalances
-Cysts, fibroids, endometriosis, hysterectomies
-What your discharge is trying to tell you
-Energy transference: Is this my trauma?
-Connection between the Colon and the Uterus
-Self care tips: Meditation/Movement, Journaling, Cleansing Herbs
This workshop is open to all bodies with a uterus. Bring your notebooks and an openness to ask questions!

"While still a teenager, a young woman with a dream of becoming a midwife begins a journey in search of traditional midwives. Her journey takes her through northeastern Brazil, indigenous villages, rural communities, quilombo settlements, and fishing villages. After meeting with these women, she transforms what she has learned into a film about ancestral wisdom and birth." http://mulheresdaterra.com.br/wp_en/#projeto
Mayara Boaretto Rocha is a midwife’s apprentice based in San Paolo, Brazil. Her journey was inspired by her own birth experience, after questioning why it is she was born via caesarean section in a city hospital while her parents were both birthed at home by traditional midwives. Brazil has one of the highest c-section rates in the world, and Mayara’s journey took her to rural villages in her country to interview traditional midwives and their challenges of upholding these practices as more people travel to hospitals in nearby cities for birth. After screening her personal documentary in various indigenous communities within Brazil, she will be embarking on a US and European tour to further have conversations around birth stories and the reclamation of traditional healing.
Following the screening will be a Q&A panel consisting of Mayara and local birthworkers of color in the Long Beach/Los Angeles area. The panel will be moderated by organizer June Kaewsith (Jumakae).
