In spite of bad weather forecast, we had a very nice day at Marion Street Park Association Block Party.
We were very pleased to set our accommodations inside the beautiful Marion Street Park.Our guest artists, a Capoeira group, Ile De Palmares, held a demonstration and a workshop there.
Ile De Palmares’s demonstration on the street.
Their music and performance attracted people.
Some girl wanted to learn capoeira right away.
They held instruction workshop to kids individually at glorious lawn space of the park too.
Some kids were very enthusiastic for learning capoeira techniques.
Our collaborator, Yuki of Home Cooking of the World, cooked Curry Noodle Soup.
She explained to people about why it is important for her project, and ingredients of the soup of the day during her cooking.
Enjoy the food!
We set a new parasol for a play yard and priority seats area.
We set a new small private place for potty training.
A new setting with an electric pumping tool, and a fan.

Classes are held in Long Island City, Queens; Williamsburg, Brooklyn; Lower East Side, Manhattan; and Flushing, Queens.
We are a community of like-minded individuals who support each other and strive towards understanding our true potential. Together, we are committed to a lifetime journey of mental, physical and spiritual growth.
