TRANSCENDANCE: All day Hook Suspension event with CoRE!
Hook Suspension means the act of rigging a human body to hang from implements that have been placed through temporary perforations in the skin. Throughout history, spiritual practitioners of suspension have reported reaching altered states of consciousness through this intense experience.
CoRE, a group of professional piercers that has successfully rigged and suspended thousands of people, is offering a unique opportunity for first-timers, as well as experienced people, to go up on the hooks at our premier Hook Suspension event, TRANSCENDANCE!
Each person will get at least 20 to 30 minutes to suspend. CoRE will be in attendance at all times so no one is left alone at any time during their suspension. Participants are welcome to bring up to 4 friends and loved ones to witness their ascension.
There are only 13 time slots available for this carefully coordinated event and space is limited. If you are going to get suspended, be on time to the event and make sure to reserve a time slot to be pierced/suspended. Couples are welcome!
Per person available time slots are listed below. Each one hour time slot includes prep/piercing time, suspension time, and post/after care time:
12:00 - 1:00, 12:20 - 1:20, 1:00 - 2:00, 1:20 - 2:20, 3:00 - 4:00, 3:20 - 4:20, 4:00 - 5:00, 4:20 - 5:20, 5:00 - 6:00, 5:20 - 6:20, 6:00 - 7:00, 6:20 - 7:20, 7:00 - 8:00

Important things to note:
Due to time constraints, the suspension positions available will be those that require between 2 and 4 hooks only.
Due to the ceiling height in Sacred Muse, it is recommend that only people 5ft 10" and under sign up for this event.
If you'd like to listen to your own music, bring wireless headphones and a paired blue tooth music playing device. Otherwise, well provide a selection of ambient music for you to enjoy.
There will be spectacular photo opportunities at this event but remember you must have the express PERMISSION from the person you are photographing and anyone else that might be in the background of the picture.
From Dave Navarro, also a member of CoRE, on his hook suspension experience:
"All I can say is that I got something out of the experience that transcends words. I had asked many artists in the past, whats that feel like? I now understand the look I'd get as they searched for the right words to explain, sometimes even a subtle look of annoyance, as they knew they really couldn't. For me, it was the following: calm, spiritual, still, trust, love, passion, ecstasy, clarity, adrenaline, God, invigoration, vision, light and dark, just to scratch the surface. Nothing bad ass, nothing daring, nothing experimental, nothing of what I expected, it is so much more than what I could have imagined."
About CoRE - Constructs of Ritual Evolution:
We in CoRE have suspended our own concept of physical limitation, pierced the heart of our fears, and transcended the boundaries of social convention in order to further the understanding of the corporeal and spiritual being. Ritualistic acts combined with traditional performance art and theater provide us with a new outlet for artistic expression that enables the audience to join us on our emotional journey. By pushing our own boundaries in life and art, we inspire others to explore their own.
