Her source is within.
Awakening is not a thing. It is not a goal, not a concept. It is not something to be attained. It is a metamorphosis. If the caterpillar thinks about the butterfly it is to become, saying ‘And then I shall have wings and antennae,’ there will never be a butterfly. The caterpillar must accept its own disappearance in its transformation. When the marvelous butterfly takes wing, nothing of the caterpillar remains. ~ Alejandro Jodorowsky 🐆 I WELCOME THIS YEAR!!! #vandanamusic #vandamner #antivenus #noxanima #vandanajain

It’s been 14 days now since I broke my right fibula and damaged a bunch of ligaments. The first week felt like a month, time didn’t make the slightest movement. After a few days of getting past the anger and the seeming needlessness of my injury, came true appreciation for the message to slow down and pay attention to what’s most important. I know why this was brought to me. Beautiful, deep, intense lesson, and a long recovery ahead. I’ve been writing, drawing and painting, making melodies on my dad’s Casio VL Tone, reading and meditating. It’s a liberation of sorts from the prison of the rational, constantly needing to prove and do something important construct. I’m thankful for it. Our bodies are magic machines that we take for granted. Never has walking seemed like a gift. This is my current reality dance. In which no literal dancing is involved but all sorts of other mysteries are waiting for me to go find them and perhaps I’ll invent some of my own too.
Not vexed, just in a zone. Stay tuned for a video of our performance @threesbrewing ~ with @vandamner @aroojaftabmusic @cha.greve

You have no idea how hard I’ve looked for a gift to bring You. Nothing seemed right. What’s the point of brining gold to the gold mine, or water to the ocean. Everything I came up with was like taking spices to the Orient. It’s no good giving my heart and my soul because you already have these. So I’ve brought you a mirror. Look at yourself and remember me. ~ Rumi @vandamner

Anti Venus Party Dec. 6th 2013
We are so excited for the ANTI VENUS PARTY this December 6th at La Sala, Cantina Royal in Williamsburg.
Starting off the night at 10 P.M. with an incredible hour long DJ set by Kodomo, then to our own live act with Yusuke Yamamoto, Ryan Casey, myself and a very special appearance by Federico Aubele on guitar. A serious dance party follows with my favourite Modest P.
We have created beautiful video projections spanning across three high ceiling walls in collaboration with the fantastic Andres Burgos . Andres and I created this short promo video for the song Ecstatic from Anti Venus and are working on a video for Mask for which we had a test shoot day yesterday, here are a couple of out-takes from the shoot.
This is a strictly RSVP only party, send us an email at email@example.com
