      Hierbas que nos Apoyan

      En el tiempo que estaremos juntos habrá oportunidad de compartir nuestras conexiones con hierbas. El enfoque será alrededor de hierbas que ayudan a reducir la ansiedad, estrés, depresión, insomnio, y que apoyan el sistema nervioso. También hablaremos acerca de las diferentes formas de consumir hierbas y recursos que existen en obtener hierbas. El uso de hierbas es una forma ancestral de apoyar nuestro bienestar y eso es parte de la inspiración de este compartimiento con la comunidad.

      The lecture/workshop reveals to individuals a clarity and truth about the arts that has remained unknown for decades. He reveals all of the important easily applicable benefits of the arts that will be a requirement in the new economy. Things like enhanced communication skills, improvisation, being introspective, developing better questions and understanding that mistakes are capable of producing new and exciting opportunities. Silva says, “we were all born with genius level capacities to draw, think, learn and to question.” He believes that society has imposed a discrimination against our children simply because they are children and we stop developing what’s already naturally there. He believes the arts are an important component of everyone’s education but they need to be  taught correctly. By doing so, we can develop and nurture what’s organically already there . This will give everyone a greater degree of success in the 21st century job market

      SR Intercultural Center, Pioneer 380.

      Virtual viewing via Instagram Live.

      Join us as we welcome renown poet, Alejandro Jimenez. Alejandro will share with us an hour of poetry reading from his unique work (10:30 -11:30am), followed by an hour poetry workshop (11:30-12:30). You can attend one or the other or both. Workshop: "Two tongues, two languages". In this workshop, we will explore the languages we carry in our tongues. It will ask the participants to think beyond the immediate benefits and repercussions of being bilingual. We will explore the power, the resistance created when we hold on to our language(s); when we give new meaning to words, when we create new words, when we write in a way that our family understand us, when we do not conform. What does it mean to be bilingual in an era of anti-latinx rhetoric and sentiments? The crux of this workshop is on how our tongues are not a burden but a necessary tool to reclaim ourselves.


      ALEJANDRO JIMENEZ is a formerly-undocumented immigrant, poet, writer, and educator from Colima, Mexico, living in New Mexico. He is the 2021 Mexican National Poetry Slam Champion, he is a two-time National Poetry Slam Semi-Finalist (US), multiple time TEDx Speaker/Performer, and regional Emmy-nominated poet. He was featured in TIME Magazine as one of 80 Mexican artists shaping contemporary Mexican culture. His work centers and touches on cultural identity, immigrant narratives, masculinity, memory, and the intersections of them all.
