  • Why the SAD has so efficiently created a nation of epidemic obesity.
  • The different components of the SAD, and how each one perpetuates diseases & obesity.
  • How to eat a nutrient-dense, plant-RICH diet – aka The Nutritarian Diet.
  • How eating a Nutritarian diet-style can insure you attain and MAINTAIN a lean healthy weight, and it’s potential to prevent and reverse disease.
  • How the Standard American Diet has been INTENTIONALLY designed to create psychological and physiological food addiction
  • About the mind-altering drugs which have been put into processed foods to insure LIFETIME addiction.
  • Why it seems some people would rather DIE than stop eating their favorite junk food.

CHRYSALIS

Chrysalis is about how we create things that are private, that privately happen, but present it playfully in public-
what vulnerabilities we have as people but in this context, offering a space to bring these identities, feelings and experiences forth into a public sphere; not just in the sense of transformation as becoming someone or something else but looking at how we share these inbetween spaces together.

Space as defined by the meanings and perceptions that glow in the dark of human presence. Where the boundaries of who you are blur and change in subtle and mysterious ways among the people who are existing with you at that same particular place and time.
+ + + + + 
Please bring that prom dress you wore once, that wig only for Halloween, the silver blazer that's too loud for the symphony or those checkered platform shoes you want to wear everyday- to inhabit the night and become part of our changing room.
