April 30 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Japhet Creek, 4646 Billy Street
Houston, TX 77020 United States

Want to learn to make homemade Kombucha? It's a fermented tea full of probiotics (healthy gut!), nonalcoholic (usually around .5%), and simple to make. Kombucha acts as an adaptogen, which helps the body maintain homeostasis. The main ingredients are simple; water, a SCOBY, tea and something sweet.

10% of the proceeds to this class current indigenous resistance projects and movements. In the past this money has gone to Two Rivers Camp, AIDA and Survival International. These groups champion tribal peoples and defend their land and culture. As we celebrate their wisdom in our class we will also be sending support for their way of living to continue.

Meet filmmaker Regis Tremblay 11:59:30-Thirty Seconds to Midnight

May 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

This has been a very long, three year project that began with my first feature documentary, The Ghosts of Jeju. It was then that I realized the U.S. plan for full spectrum dominance of the planet. My research and interest since then has focused on the trajectory of Manifest Destiny since the white, European explorers came to the Americas in the 15th Century.

And so it is, America’s destiny has all life on the planet on the very brink of extinction. As Dr. Caldicott wonders at the end of the film, “Are we an evolutionary aberration designed in an evolutionary sense not to survive? I wonder.”
