DEAR MEMBERS OF BETH STEPHENS CLASS:
My name is Linda Mary Montano. I am a performance artist and I would like to do a collaboration with you....It includes a letter that you will READ AND PERFORM in your class on WED Jan 19th.
I would like you to consider your body..it is filled with glands and with life. I used to call these parts of my body the chakras. I now call my practice working with the glands......And I find this very rich and wonderfull... It is about thanking the "insideness" of ourselves.....our machinery, our body.....I am a returned Roman Catholic and I can also call these 7 sites the sites of the seven sacraments......Carolyn Myss makes a beautifull map of this comparativeness....
I wrote a book in 2002 or so called Letters From Linda Mary Montano. Why? Because I was a selective mute as a child and didnt talk....I wrote DEAR MOM AND DAD, IM SORRY I FOUGHT WITH BILL LAST NIGHT .I SAID A ROSARY FOR YOU LOVE LINDA. Stuff like that....
So here is what we can do together..I would like you to
1. AT HOME: BE SILENT AND ASK YOUR BODY, WHAT GLAND WANTS ME TO BE GRATEFULL TO IT NOW?
OVARIES/TESTES? RED....BEGINNING ENERGY
PANCREAS ? ORANGE.....MONEY SECURITY
ADRENALS? YELLOW....COURAGE/ FIGHT FLIGHT
THYMUS? GREEN.... COMPASSION
THYROID? BLUE COMMUNICATION
I would like you to find your spot and then
1. AT HOME:DRESS IN THE COLOR OF THE GLAND YOU ARE ATTRACTED TO ...MAKE SURE U DONT SPEND MONEY FOR THE CLOTHES...TRADE, BORROW, THRIFT STORE BARTER ETC
2. AT HOME:WRITE A 10 MINUTE LETTER TO THIS GLAND AND TO YOU AND TO THE HEALING.....
3. THEN COME TO CLASS....ON WEDNESDAY THE 19TH.
4. DRESS IN THE SAME COLOR CLOTHES......
5. PICK BY CHANCE A PARTNER...TAKE ONE MINUTE SILENCE AND LOOK AT EACH OTHER...NOW THAT YOU ARE CONNECTED CHOOSE WHO IS TO READ FIRST(BETH WILL TIME THIS)
6. THEN BETH WILL TIME YOU SO THAT SIDE ONE WILL READ YOUR LETTER FOR 10 MINUTES..EVEN IF YOU FINISH , JUST BE IN THE SILENCE....SIDE TWO WILL THEN READ...
7. BOTH OF YOU TAKE 5 MINUTES EACH TO DESIGN AN ACTION OF GRATITUDE TO YOUR CHOSEN GLAND....IT WILL BE DONE ALL TOGETHER....
