A night of erotic ritual, conjuring an enchantingly brighter future. This month's Sacred Wounds explores: Dragoness.
Dragon Lady is usually a stereotype of Asian women as strong, deceitful, domineering, or mysterious. The term's origin and usage arose in America during the late 1800s with the passing of the Page Act of 1875 which radically lowered immigration of Chinese women and men as well.
Interestingly, the dragon is a symbol of evil, in both the chivalric and Christian traditions....
In the Orient, it symbolizes supernatural power, wisdom, strength, and hidden knowledge. <--- Let us reclaim THIS true meaning! The time is critical to be our authentic and powerful multi-faceted selves.
Come on this journey with us for the second Sacred Wounds event to see how these performers reclaim this history, stereotype and mythical notion, once bathed in negativity. Join us on Zoom for this virtual full moon event!
