With infinite gratitude for the honor and blessing of this practice.
El Tule Institute was created in October 2012 by Dr. Martha Perez, with over 27 years experience as an educator and eco focused life coach via Haitian drumming and dance spiritual traditions.
This collaborative center has evolved from the vision of a brick and mortar physical space to a virtual space for workshops, collaborative projects, educational presentations and technical art that encompasses music, movement, mindfulness, visual art, and a combination of modalities creating synthesis in new ways of expression. This shift in focus is in line with global changes resulting from the Covid 19 pandemic and need for social distancing.
