Join 1 Hotel South Beach & Moon and Jai for our second annual 11/11 at 1 event. In this beautiful, intimate and heart-opening sunset ritual, we will set our intentions to experience the divine energy of oneness. Oneness with yourself, with the Beloved, with Community, with the Earth, and with the Universe.

11:11 Is considered a Master number, and instantly connects us with the field of unlimited potential, which allows us to receive an abundance of inspiration, insight, creativity, and openness to divine love. The number 1 appears as a direct pillar to Spirit, and is known as the direct gateway to the Divine. When that number is quadrupled, it gives us instant access to Source. Creating intentional rituals on this day pays off in miraculous ways. As we come together in a group to set our intentions on the eve of Full Moon, overlooking the sunset and the ocean, we will amplify the power of the portal with our group energy.

Open up to the possibility of extraordinary new beginnings with the alchemy of a heart opening adaptogenic cacao ceremony, followed by crystal meditation, self-healing techniques and gentle movement. Deeply relax while you are bathed in healing and transformational sound currents. Set your intention with powerful writing prompts and self reflection practice. Walk away inspired and recharged with your heart fully open to magnificent possibilities.

Tickets are $33 in advance & $50 at the door

Limited availability, pre-register early!

White attire encouraged

Participants will receive:
• Your own fully charged crystal
• Piece of Palo Santo – Sacred wood for energetic clearing
• Adaptogenic cacao with take-home cup
• Gem & Bolt cacao mezcal cocktail following the ceremony

*This is a Phone-Free Ritual: In an effort to promote mindfulness and encourage you to fully open your heart to the vibrations of this powerful day, please note that this will be a technology-free event. We will have a photographer present to capture beautiful imagery that we will share with participants after the event, so that you can focus on living in the moment and connecting with yourself and each other.

Satellite Beach Blues takes place along the Space Coast of Florida in an unspecified moment in the very near future: a transgender woman living in a cheap hotel on Florida’s Space Coast observes life in the state from the very shores where rising seas are slowly inundating the state. For this appearance at MOCA, Erica Dawn Lyle will be performing an experimental lecture in which she will read from the novel while edited sequences and soundscapes from the film-in-progress play on the big screen behind, offering a dreamlike consideration of gender transition, Florida’s legacies of colonization and real estate speculation, and the magical realist possibilities of transcendence beyond capitalism through queer lived experience. In response to the slow motion environmental collapse of Lyle’s native Florida, collaborator, Midnight Piper Forman, and Lyle (working together collectively under the name, SOBBETH) have for the past three years undertaken an ongoing multi-part exploration of the ruins of the Sunshine State’s post-war 20th century mythology.

South Florida native, Erica Dawn Lyle, is a writer, musician, and curator who lives in New York City. She is the author of On The Lower Frequencies: A Secret History of The City (Soft Skull, 2008), and her writing has appeared in Art in America, Artforum, Frieze, and on NPR’s This American Life. Since 1991, she has edited and self-published the DIY art/crime/punk magazine, SCAM. Her most recent book is Streetopia (Brooklyn, 2015). Currently she plays guitar in the bands, Bikini Kill and AquaShade.

10 Days of Connection is a community-led initiative to promote kindness and inclusion in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. From May 1-10, participants are invited to attend connection experiences hosted by more than 100 local organizations, and are challenged to step outside of their comfort zone to forge new connections across lines of difference.

In recent years, people have become increasingly divided across lines of difference. Incidents of hate have increased, and tolerance for differing ideas has decreased. For ten days each year, we challenge the entire community to break down silos and engage in acts of connection, to build empathy, to increase understanding, and to refocus on our shared humanity.

Join in! Our community will be stronger when we all commit to focusing on what unites us instead of what divides us. A full calendar of events is available at http://bit.ly/ConnectionEvents2019.

Join the conversation by following @ConnectMiami on Facebook, @10dofc on Twitter and Instagram, and by using the hashtag #10DaysOfConnection to share your experience. Learn more at.

On Saturday April 7th, Ferial Youakim, a former refugee, published author, global entrepreneur and image consultant will discuss her newly released book “Beyond Beauty – A Refugee’s Journey in Pursuit of Happiness” and sign complimentary copies for attendees at the Arts Garage, a non-profit visual and performing arts organization located at 94 NE 2nd Ave, Delray Beach, Fl. The memoir is Ferial’s journey of self-discovery and empowerment, from a childhood in a refugee camp to a successful business woman and global figure. Tickets are $30 and include refreshments and a copy of the Ferial newly released book. Tickets are available: http://artsgarage.org/authorevents/

“I can educate you, show you, and tell you that you are beautiful, but you have to believe it, and keep that belief alive in everything that you do. You already are a masterpiece.” –Ferial Youakim

Many born into a refugee camp would forever label themselves as a failure, and deem their lack of adequate education a tragedy that is enormous. Only the extraordinary would overcome these challenges to rise tall, unbreakable and beautiful, destined to inspire the rest of us.

Ferial Youakim is an image consultant with a successful international business. Those who seek out her services do so with the intent that she will “make them beautiful” – indeed, like she is. However, Ferial is adamant that this isn’t at all what she does. She reminds them of their beauty.

Ferial wrote Beyond Beauty to tell the often-tragic details of her own story, of the occasions when she so badly wanted to just give up because the stress felt unbearable.

The problem was that Ferial was working as an image consultant, convincing others of their beauty and unique selves, when she in fact was suffering crippling self esteem issues.

“On the outside, I was a strong woman and a symbol of hope, perseverance and determination, but on the inside, I was broken. It was only when others could see the strength that I did not know I had that I was able to change my focus and to start looking at the opportunities that had presented themselves to me. Because a lot of people looked up to me, being strong was my only choice,” –Ferial Youakim

Ferial still considered herself “lost” when she became a mother to her three children – lost in Lebanon, searching for herself in Australia and eventually finding herself in South Florida, when her husband received a stupendous job opportunity.

However, partly because of her self-diagnosed remaining “thoughts of a refugee.” Ms Youakim regrets some of her behaviour and actions as a mother, and has even written a public apology to her children. However, as one reads Beyond Beauty they too may find her recollections and explanations as overly harsh, when they discover the opportunities and unrelenting love she has actually afforded to her children.

This is the perfect example of the shards of poor self-esteem that remain, even though most of them have been torn down by Ms Youakim so that she may live her life more fully and without reservation.

Ferial recalls a story when she and her siblings were children. Their father, a manual labourer, was always looking to save money whenever possible, on one family trip; her father could not afford the beautiful tiles in a shop. So by prior agreement, Ms Youakim’s father and all of his children were on their hands and knees searching for the various broken shards. They were all her father could afford, and upon gently placing them together, they would be beautiful and perfect in their own right.

“Those tiles were our flying carpet and also the reminder of the love he has for us, All these years later, I now discover that love and beauty are inseparable.” –Ferial Youakim

In Out of the Shadows III, Jumana Emil Abboud asks “What do places speak of?” This audio-visual performance includes Palestinian folk-tales and traditional oral histories. These stories that inspire the artist have always emphasized the importance of relationships with the landscape and with sources of water. Evoking her Palestinian roots and the places to which she is deeply connected—Jerusalem, Jericho, the Dead Sea, and the Galilee—the artist uses music, poems, and drawings to weave together past and present, contemporary reality and the unseen world with its jinns and ghoulehs. For this world premiere, Abboud collaborates with Issa Freij, and the artists reflect on their experiences during a four-year film project as they searched for the haunted sites of which the tales tell. Their interactive storytelling explores folk customs, sacred objects, and enchanted locations to underscore themes of memory, loss, and resilience.

Miami, Florida 33128

Cost: Free

In a program designated Triptych Miami, Eleonora Fabião will present three interrelated components. The action I Will Have a Conversation About Any Subject/Converso Sobre Cualquier Asunto finds the artist at various public locations over the course of three days, barefoot, sitting and facing an empty chair, and displaying a sign bearing the invitation of the work’s title. The artist will also present a lecture performance about her practice; a workshop with young artists titled Performance Art, Artistic Strategies, and Political Imagination (New World School of the Arts); and Light Cloud, an action that will be performed along with the workshop participants in downtown Miami. The unpredictable encounters that result from these open-ended situations constitute the works. Born in Brazil in1968, Eleonora Fabião is an artist and theorist who has performed actions in the streets since 2008. In 2011, she received the Arts in the Streets Award from the Brazilian National Foundation of the Arts and in 2014 the Rumos Itaú Cultural Grant that resulted in the publication of the book AÇÕES/ ACTIONS. Fabião is a professor at the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro in the Theater Directing Undergraduate Program and the Arts of the Scene Graduate Program, where she chairs the artistic experimentation wing. Fabião is interested in the poetics and ethics of the strange, of the encounter, of precariousness. She considers the street actions as forms of knowledge and thought, and understands concepts and theories as sources of energy to keep investigating and inventing city, art, university, and writing. Her performance work has taken place in several venues including as part of Performa15 in New York in 2015, and at the Centro Municipal de Arte Hélio Oiticica and the Museu Bispo do Rosário, both in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.

from her ocean-themed children’s book series Seaper Powers! Great for kids ages 5-9, the Seaper Powers series communicates positive messages about self-confidence, friendship, and the environment. The children will journey with Kim and Emma through the ocean, tumbling across waves to discover treasure with the help of new sea critter friends along the way. Guests will enjoy a puppet reading, short movie based on the book, and a meet-and-greet / Q&A session with the author.

Seaper Powers: In Search of Bleu Jay’s Treasure is a magical tale about a little girl, Emma, who discovers special seagrass off the island of St. Thomas. The magical grass gives her the power to talk to fish! Not only does she make new friends; she also sets off on a new adventure to find buried treasure!

Kim Cameron is a true believer in inspiring and nurturing kids. She is a vocal instructor/mentor with Guitars Over Guns and often takes her students to perform with her at local community events. While on tour in the Caribbean, she met a 12-year-old girl who had a fascination with octopi. This brief encounter inspired the creation of Mr. Octopus, a children’s tune featuring an 8-year-old whom Kim had signed to her record label. After completing the song, her co-writer and guitarist, John DePatie, encouraged her to take it to next level by writing a children’s book using the song as the basis of the story. They called the book Seaper Powers: In Search of Bleu Jay’s Treasure. Kim Cameron is also a 2-time Billboard Top 20 dance recording artist.

Twenty Five years ago the most damaging hurricane to hit the US in nearly a century slammed into Miami-Dade County. HURRICANE shows the drama and devastation wreaked by the Category 5 storm through spectacular bold images, most of which have never been seen before. The book focuses on the effect of the storm’s extreme forces at the Kendall-Tamiami airport, just blocks away from Country Walk, the residential community that was completely decimated at this pivotal moment in Florida history.
