Self Helping for Broken Humans TONIGHT!

December 10th – Monday – “Self-helping for broken humans” Doors 7:30 p.m. Event 8 p.m., this event is FREE

A powerpoint and video guide to total actualization.  Our team of experts is here to guide your clammy leper hands in the direction of the hidden keys to your salvation.  We will navigate the broken and blind masses through the catacombs of the self, only to direct you to achieve what you’ve been denying yourself all these 87 years or whatever that you’ve been banished to this realm we call life on Earth.  Because the hero lies in you, just like Mariah Carey or someone like that has been telling you this whole time.  We are instruments to the personification of your true potential, and our powerpoints are the instruments of our library of simple knowledge that you just can’t find on the internet and other crap.

Featuring: Michael Gerkovich, Billy Fatzinger, Scott Gelber, Abbey Sarver, John Sinclair, Izaak Schlossman, Sean Hamilton, Tom Cory, Andrew Jeffrey Wright, Malwina Andruczyk, Joanna Quigley, Emilia Brintnall, Rose Luardo, Wendy Hyatt, and maybe more. This event is FREE. Facebook Event


If you can’t make it tonight, preview the work up for auction on our Flickr Album!
