SUMMER SAINT CAMP

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

SUMMER SAINT CAMP:THE 21ST CENTURY



In 1984, for 7 years, I designed a way for people to come and live with me for a week and called it SUMMER SAINT CAMP. It was during my performance 14 YEARS OF LIVING ART and we all dressed in the color that I was wearing that year and performed actions relevant to the Chakra that I was practicing the year that they attended the Saint Camp.(see www.lindamontano.com) It was based on simple living ,the "art povera" principles of less is more and the practice of making art to bring closure to the past and homeopathically prepare for the future by acting strong in advance of the unknown.

Annie Sprinkle, Veronica Vera, Barbara Carrellas, Sylvia Nakkach, Helene Aylon and many others joined me in Kingston, NY at THE ART/LIFE INSTITUTE, each for a week and they received PERFORMANCE ART/SAINT DEGREES at the conclusion of their residency.

They practiced conservation of water,cold showers, used only 4 sheets of toilet paper, ate vegetarian meals, practiced silence, performed blindfolded and found ways to make an art of their everyday life as outlined in my book ART IN EVERYDAY LIFE, 1980.The days were structured in a convent format and as an ex-novice having lived in a convent for 2 years, I brought to the experience a good memory of that time and gifts from sacred and artful living.

SUMMER SAINT CAMP IS BACK!!! some 20 years later. This time I am inviting performers to come for 3 HOURS , and I suggest you take a vow to endure without using cell phones, laptops or any outside communication device for the time we are together. You have the option to participate individually or with a friend or as a group.

Come to Kingston NY, for THIS 3 HOUR hour ART/LIFE experience . Bring your own toilet paper, water and food. Choose beforehand the GLAND or SACRAMENT that you would like to explore, the life issues you wish to perform, the color you want to wear. I now focus on GLANDS and SACRAMENTS and as a certified Laughter Leader, we will also be using that sound-making device in our time together as well as have a chance to work on any art/life issue discovered during the residency. Everything is practiced in a careful, compassionate and yet energetic manner with respect for everyone's boundaries. You have the option to cite: "Collaborated with Linda Mary Montano", on your resume after this residency if you wish.

TESTIMONIALS:

"SUMMER SAINT CAMP transformed my life for good and forever. I left Camp knowing I was truly the artist I had never allowed myself to be. Linda's encouragement and guidance still infuses all my work. SUMMER SAINT CAMP may be the most important commitment you make to your artist self." BARBARA CARRELLAS, Life/Artist and Author of URBAN TANTRA SACRED SEX FOR THE 21ST CENTURY


"SUMMER SAINT CAMP was simply the most brilliant, profound, life enhancing workshop I've ever done. I found my calling, quadrupled my income, got spiritually satisfied, fell in love, enriched my sex life and my art career really took off. Sign up today."
ANNIE SPRINKLE, Artist/Author/Lecturer/Ecosexual


"My first night at Linda Montano's SUMMER SAINT CAMP I had what Linda described as a "seven chakra dream". It encompassed the most pressing issues in my life at that time. By the end of my stay, I created an art piece that reflected that dream and improved my life. Her philosophy that life is art is the cornerstone of my Academy. Linda Montano will help you to be a saint and miracle worker." VERONICA VERA, Author and Founder, MISS VERA'S TRANSGENDER ACADEMY
