For the Culture: Truth, Trial, and Transformation @ Various Locations in Durham, NC
Oct 24 @ 7:00 pm – Oct 27 @ 10:00 pm
For the Culture: Truth, Trial, and Transformation @ Various Locations in Durham, NC

Culture is the catalyst for our social, spiritual and political transformation. It is the roadmap to the liberation already living in our bones. Since 1999 SpiritHouse has used Culture, Practice, and Ritual (C.P.R.) to amplify the truths, trials, and transformations of our communities. For the past 20 years, this C.P.R. has saved our lives.

As we look towards our bright future, we want to share our insights, celebrate our accomplishments, and begin manifesting our visions with you, at our first annual For The Culture Weekend. Please join us in our hometown of Durham North Carolina. We can’t wait to see you!

Friday, October 25th – 6pm – Community Sing

“We need practices that uplift the spirit and grows our sense of our collective power to participate in collective struggle.” – Wendi Moore-O’Neal

Join us as we practice joy and liberation through song. No experience is necessary in order to be a participant in this cultural practice. Just come with a willingness to join in the chorus.

Join us for the very first community roda held at Northstar Church of the Arts led by the Durham Capoeira Angoleirx Group! Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, acrobatics, and music. It was developed by enslaved Africans in Brazil at the beginning of the 16th century. A roda is an important part of capoeira culture. It is an energizing spirit-lifting community gathering where folks come to play capoeira, sing, connect, share food and learn more about this important Black movement tradition.

Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and Mexican Modernism from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection @ North Carolina Museum of Art - East Building, Meymandi Exhibition Gallery
Oct 26 2019 – Jan 19 2020 all-day
Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and Mexican Modernism from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection @ North Carolina Museum of Art - East Building, Meymandi Exhibition Gallery

Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and Mexican Modernism from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection presents the paintings of two icons of the 20th century. Few artists have captured the public’s imagination with the force of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo (1907–54) and her husband, the Mexican painter and muralist Diego Rivera (1886–1957). The myths that surrounded them in their lifetime arose not only from their significant bodies of work, but also from their friendships (and conflicts) with leading political figures and their passionate, tempestuous personal relationships.

Kahlo and Rivera’s works are varied in scope and inspiration: she is best-known for her self-portraits, while he worked as a large-scale muralist in Mexico and the United States. Kahlo’s work is deeply personal, often depicting her own dreams, painful personal experiences, and affinity with Mexican culture, while Rivera’s pursues larger looks at history and cultural revolution. Both artists forged the way for Mexican art as a significant element of the 20th century and beyond.

Similarly important is the legacy of two of Kahlo and Rivera’s patrons, Jacques and Natasha Gelman. The Gelmans became Mexican citizens in 1942 and began amassing Mexican art, sustaining a growing collection of Mexican modernists, like Kahlo and Rivera (with whom they became close friends), as well as their compatriots Rufino Tamayo, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and others. Their unparalleled collection shows the richness of Mexican art through painting, drawing, photography, and film.

A Brief Glimpse of History: The last 10 surahs of the Qur’an @ ICM Banquet Hall
Oct 26 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Go back in time with some of the most recited verses of the Quran! Learn to connect and apply the lessons from ‘A Glimpse of History’!

Starting with Adam ﷺ and the Ka’bah, then Ibrahim ﷺ and the Ka’bah, then Abraha (surah Fil). Then the blessings of the Quraish (surah Quraish), then how the Arabs weren’t upholding their end of the deal (surah Ma’oon), so Allah ﷻ sends His Messenger ﷺ (surah Kawthar), the response is mixed between believers vs. disbelievers (surah Kaafiroon), this division leads to conflict and victory for the believers (surah Nasr) and loss for the disbelievers (surah Lahab), and the Quran finishes by returning to the central theme: Tawheed (surah Ikhlas) and the two ways to protect it (surah Falaq & Nas)

About Paradiso and Rasamayi:

Paradiso and Rasamayi are internationally renowned sound healers with five New Age Radio chart-topping CDs and awards for the year’s best Meditation/Relaxation, World, and New Age albums.

Although their mystical and celestial music earns them frequent praise as consummate musicians by the most prestigious critics, award foundations and DJs of both the world of mainstream music and the New Age community, Carnegie Hall didjeridoo artist Paradiso and singing bowl master alchemist Rasamayi are fully self-trained. Beyond their function as musicians, they are ambassadors of the Sacred Sound Current and channels of their audiences’ unique frequency prescription for optimal healing and soul evolution.

The twin flames’ collaborative debut CD 3rd Eye Rising won the Independent Music Award for Best New Age Album of the Year, was featured in Dr. Masaru Emoto’s MyHado application, won the Independent Music Award for the Best New Age Album of the Year, was voted in the top 3 of 2011’s World Music CDs by the Coalition of Visionary Resources, the top 5 of the year’s meditation and relaxation CDs by the Zone Music Reporter, and was in the top 5 of 2011’s international airplay of world, ambient and New Age music. Their live events are uniquely powerful and beautiful spiritual soundscapes in which those in attendance frequently report experiences of unprecedented and profound meditation; visions of their guides, life purpose, and past lives; and profound healing of acute and chronic emotional, physical and spiritual dis-ease. Their new CD, “Attuning to Oneness: The Harmonic Ascension” features the song “All is Love,” which was originally recorded by request of Humanity’s Team, founded by Neale Donald Walsch.

Rasamayi is a chanteuse and Singing Bowl Master Alchemist and a full-body channel for the many manifestations of Divine Mother.

Paradiso is a master didjeridoo artist and founder of the “5th Element Music” label, with 5 bestselling, award-winning, and international New Age Radio chart-topping healing CDs: “Healing Vibes,” “Shaman’s Trance,” “Middle Path,” “Himalayan Chakra Healing” and “3rd Eye Rising.”
