When she was young, Pearl was sexually abused/molested in a Hasidic religious school she attended in Jerusalem. This has strongly encouraged her to discover the world of nude modeling, body painting, to help her heal while spreading the healing energy to all those around her.

There are many reasons why people want to connect with nature, with their fundamental human origins and the value of this event is far more than the body painting but- rather is is about healing through vulnerability trust magic and beauty and human connection.

When models are open to the elements, sometimes people even start ‘feeling faint’ while they are being painted. It’s pure joy from the beginning, it’s such an intimate thing, to paint somebody’s body, and so the connection goes very deep.

Artist and models  do talk about more personal matters and things come out, so the actual process itself can be very healing. We’re also physically connecting with the earth under our feet, as well as with the sun, with the wind and whatever else the weather has for us that day. And the photographers who are scattered like daisies portray respect and beauty through their portraits making sure to ask consent prior to photographing them model. It’s just magical.

Then comes the magnificent parade around  NYC Tompkins Square Park where pedestrians are greeted with love and respect, and many even join the parade as they exclaim their astonishment and overwhelming excitement to be included with so much love.

“Human don’t hate humans they don’t know.”

-Shauli Grossman

Yet in the past 150 years, hundreds of millions of men, women and children have lost their lives in genocide or war.
http://endgenocide.org/learn/past-genocides/

Why do we do this?
Do you hate people living in Iran? Farmers and villagers living in Afghanistan? Nurses and businessmen in Iraq?
Do you hate the people in Vietnam enough to kill 282,000 of your brothers and sisters in our army just to kill 444,000 of them?

The millions marching in the nazi army were pawns. The 250,000 child soldiers in 20+ countries are pawns. We kill and die for wars we never waged with people we never knew. In the latest war WE bombed Iraq at the cost of 4500+ soldiers lives and 30,000+ wounded, to kill over a million of them, for what? For you? For peace https://www.iraqbodycount.org?

Don’t be a pawn.
Don’t let them scare you.
Don’t believe the news.
Don’t go along with it.
Don’t be a pawn in someone else’s game

Sexual objectification is the act of treating a person as an instrument of sexual pleasure. Objectification more broadly means treating a person as a commodity or an object without regard to their personality or dignity. Objectification is most commonly examined at the level of a society, but can also refer to the behavior of individuals.

The concept of sexual objectification and, in particular, the objectification of women, is an important idea in feminist theory and psychological theories derived from feminism. Many feminists regard sexual objectification as deplorable and as playing an important role in gender inequality. However, some social commentators argue that some modern women objectify themselves as an expression of their empowerment.

We’re familiar with the societal pressure that goes along with “ideal body image,” particularly among females. While skinny models may populate most of today’s magazines and media, emphasizing an unhealthy obsession with thinness, women have always been under some form of pressure to look a certain way — even if that meant being more thickset in the 1940s and 50s.

Though it’s not talked about as often, male body image has also changed throughout the years from a lean, stylish look to a fixation on nearly impossible muscles and masculinity. Due to years of objectification and sexualization, female bodies tend to be more exposed to the scrutinizing public eye, but men are also subject to similar pressures, albeit perhaps more subtly. Here’s a brief and broad history of body image in the U.S., from the days of pale, buxom ladies to the 1980s passion for women with lean, tan bodies, and finally, to the modern day body-positive movement.
