COM|PASSionate Events

Ahoy REVOLUTIONARIES!

We’re back from our Austin adventure and have so much to tell you! We’ll give you more details on Monday’s Mental Health Mash-Up!

Until then, here’s some revolutionary activity to engage in over the next week and also some words of wisdom from Alabama Shakes:

EVENTS

Get out, take care of yourself and heal in community!

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Don’t forget there’s lots of upcoming ways to get involved!

  • California Women of Color Herbal Symposium is coming up on 5/22/15-5/24/15. It’s  a little out of our budget but, oh, how our dirty hippie social justice inspired little hearts did a pitter patter when they noticed this event pop up! Check it out for us if you can!
  • All of these internet shenanigans too much? Need to digitally detox? How about checking out Camp Grounded: Summer Camp for Adults!
  • Gender Spectrum is coming up in July! “Gender Spectrum provides education, training and support to help create a gender sensitive and inclusive environment for all children and teens.” They run an annual conference in Berkeley, CA for youth, families and professionals! Go check them out! Registration is now open! They are also looking for volunteers!

RECOMMENDATIONS

Some thoughts on feelings…

This Feeling {Alabama Shakes}

“I just kept hoping, I just kept hoping
The way would become clear
I spent all this time tryna play nice and
Fight my way hereSee, I’ve been having me a real hard time
But it feels so nice to know I’m gonna be alright

So I just kept dreaming, yeah, I just kept dreaming
It wasn’t very hard
I spent all this time tryna figure out why
Nobody on my side

See, I’ve been having me a real god time
And it feels so nice to know I’m gonna be alright

So please don’t take my feelings
I have found at last
So please don’t take my feelings
I have found at last
Yeah, if I wanted to… I’d be alright

So I just kept going, I just kept going
And hoping I’m growing near
Well this good and fine, I spent all this time
Tryna find my way here

And I’ve been having me a real fun time
And it feels so nice to know I’m gonna be alright

Please don’t take this feeling
I have found at last
Please don’t take my feeling
I have found at last
If I wanted to, I’d be alright
Yeah, if I wanted to, I’d be alright”

In feelings,

COM|PASSionate REVOLT

(Currently, sitting in being “alright.”)
