A workshop and street parade led by the transnational feminist collective Go! Push Pops. Based loosely on neo-shamanism and a belief in the sacredness of nature, the workshop will help participants learn to identify their spirit animal and strengthen their human connection to the earth through simple physical exercises and meditative crafts. Participants will have the opportunity to make their own costumes in the likeness of their spirit animal. To conclude the session, the group will take to the streets, parading with joy and ease through the wilderness of Roppongi.
