Peregrine Bermas

Peregrine Bermas is a queer islander, survivor and folk artist creating in occupied Chicago. Their creative practice interweaves curiosity for physiology, natural medicine, meditation and liminal space. They are a certified yoga instructor and reiki master in the usui shiki ryoho lineage. Their transdisciplinary work centers youth, folks living outside of the binary, people of color and survivors of sexual violence.

They are currently a teaching artist with Young Cultural Stewards and ProjectArt, Healer-in-Residence with Axis Lab Chicago and 1/4 of I Live in a House with a Door.
