Succurro Off-Site: Practical Tools for Health

Are you curious about your relationship to your health and creativity? Do you want to take more responsibility for your well being? Do you want to learn new tools for your creative healing practice? Are you in artist curious about the intersection of creativity and healing? Our friends at Succurro are visiting us to share their programs and practices for one night at Instar. This event is FREE and open to all.

Although mysterious and magical, alternative health care does not need to be confusing or impractical. Located in the Western Catskills, Succurro is a space for regenerating our humanity + reclaiming a right to health through education, creativity, and community. We offer opportunities and accessible tools for connecting with modalities that we have found to be most fundamental to taking responsibility for our health. In this mini-workshop, modalities with self-care elements will be presented, along with a guided meditation, joyful embodiment experience, Q+A and upcoming opportunities.

About Owyn and Damian:

Owyn Ruck Bio.jpg

Owyn studied both psychology and studio art, and then returned to her hometown of Brooklyn and co-founded the Textile Arts Center in NYC in 2009, acting as Director until fall 2015. Struck by the significance of community and creativity in individual (and thus collective) health and healing, she began to combine her own trans-personal and transformative experiences with specific training in order to create opportunities for others seeking to explore their potential within the collective. Owyn practices SourcePoint Therapy alongside astrology and other self-inquiry methods; she is a weaver and occasionally leads textile-oriented workshops that focus on the therapeutic aspect of working with our hands.


Damian discovered magic when he was 18. To battle chronic pain, vacillating depression, and distracting anxiety he embarked on an adventure gathering the tools that provide him and others the power to change. Since then he's studied over a dozen modalities, finally settling on a devotion to understanding energy medicine and bio-mechanics - how our minds work, how our bodies work, and how experiencing their use together awakens us to life. There is no such thing as the perfect device; it is the blending of these modalities that allow for evolution, whether through simplified everyday use or for specialized needs.
