My personal practice is…….

My personal practice is my work…is prayformance.

How did you discover your practice?

I discovered my practice in the Angel Tunnel in Central Park. The sacred architecture taught me.

Why do you practice?

I practice because it is my being duty and the most neutral loving act I can do. When I am not practicing, I rest to practice.

What’s something that gets in the way of your practice and how do you move through it?

The police, parks enforcement, greedy musicians and performers, weddings, haters — judgmental people . . . I continue in spite of them. I am ruthlessly devoted.

What supports you in staying committed to your practice?

My partner Lila’Angelique and my eventual death inspire and support me in staying committed and devoted to my practice.

What role does your practice play in your work and life?

My practice, my prayformance is my work, my life, and my death.
