OPTIONAL: Bring new children's athletic shoes (sizes 10-4) and help Spirit & Place support Samaritan's Feet.

Event Description: Transport yourself into a world of exotic traditions from the four corners of the world and discover how different cultures view beauty, adornment, and body modification.

Join individuals from places such as India, Kenya, Thailand, and Brazil, who will reveal the true meaning of many practices you may have seen, but not understood. Learn about scarring, henna, body paint, piercing, kohl, and tattooing, and explore controversial issues surrounding the practices of foot binding, corseting, and neck stretching as ritual initiations into adulthood. Purchase fair trade items, register for a trip to one of these far-flung locales, sample international wine and food, and enjoy music throughout the evening.
