Transformation is a universal fate, no matter where you come from. The Ministry of Maåt in Kingston, an international group of men and women who teach educational and spiritual growth, will perform excerpts from their recently published book, Spell Breaking: Remembered Ways of Being (Deep Listening Institute), at the Rosendale Theatre on March 29. The multimedia performance includes dance, music, visuals, and rituals to tell the tales of 20 women and the transformative moments in their lives, from mourning loss to celebrating survival. From the harrowing to the revitalizing, these women's journeys have a common goal: a return to the fundamentals ways we interact with the world. World-renowned composer Pauline Oliveros, one of the novel's contributors, will lead the audience in meditations from her new album, Anthology of Text Scores. All proceeds go toward the construction of a permanent sanctuary for the Ministry and an international women's exchange program. (845) 339-5776; Ministryofmaat.org.
