Despite the pandemic and global lock downs, we humans find a myriad of ways to express ourselves and continue to ascend our energies. Artistically and culturally, we are rising forth with great diversity.
We at El Tule Institute know that things are challenging and difficult. We are committed to inspiring new ways to release stress and nourish your creative expressions in diverse ways because research published in the 2010 edition of the American Journal of Public Health shows that creative expressions help our immunity systems to stay strong and improves our mental health as well.
Take a moment to give yourself a pause from the stress by clicking on these video links that represent a diversity of cultures that remind us that no matter where we are in the world, we can unite to build hope, healing and love.

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.
