COM|PASSionate Events

Hello loves,

How goes your week? We’re still recovering from all the bouncing about that happened Halloween weekend but are (slowly but surely) focusing back in.

We’re taking in the change in the seasons in our bodies and in our hearts. We’re adjusting to the darker days.

We’re spending more time in sweats and are creating a “to read” stack next to our beds. We’re contemplating how many layers of pants we’d need and how many bottles of whiskey it would take to keep us warm through some music around a campfire in Ojai. We’re writing a love letter to our mild Southern California winter:

Dear Brisk Chill,

Bring it on. I found the perfect peacoat at a thrift store two years ago.

Love,

Union of Sweat Pants Wearers

Hey All! Happy Friday!

Hey, guess what?! You made it! One more week down. Whether it was a week that tried the buoyancy of your spirit or a week that spoiled your heart, be victorious. Sometimes it’s just about heading into the next week. Sometimes it’s just about how you decide to write it into your life story.

And, then, once we’ve taken a breath and patted ourselves on the back, we can take the weekend space to solidify our stories in ways that feel right to us. It’s all a hustle, but since we’re going to expend the energy anyways…

We can’t always control the ways our stories are set up or the adversity we encounter, but we can utilize the agency we have to walk through them. We can view the hustle as power, the hustle as a privilege.

Happy Friday everyone!

We hope you’ve had a lovely week. We hope that you’ve given and shared loved in your healing journeys. We hope that you’ve been supported and honored in your ongoing transitions.

It can be easy to get swept up in the speed of the week and the changes of day to day life to the point that it becomes difficult see where your feet touch the ground. Sometimes everything seems like a complication.

We ran into this piece traipsing about the under side of Pike’s Market in Seattle during our Gender Odyssey excursion and thought, that’s what we want. _J4N34BCAjn-gXTim8q1QJG4AuSSIxGWiZLDKE-Sj7gSo take a breath, slow down, simplify, the week is coming to a close. Have an extravagant weekend. Give and consume love with gluttonous hunger. See the complications as little hors d’oeuvres of lessons and gifts. Choose to take in beautiful moments of experience until your belly is so full you have to pause to take a nap and digest it all through the sweetest of dreams.

Happy Friday everyone!

As this scheduled post gets published we’re traipsing about on our last day in Seattle. We’re pretty sure we’re going to still be swirling from our time at Gender Odyssey and enjoying our little Pacific Northwest adventure.

Changes in locale got us thinking about the wisdom of the weather.

{Image Credit: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/512847476289004121/}

This got us thinking about how change and desire can sometimes be scary. It got us thinking about how we often turn away from the things that we can see as objectively powerful when they become personal.

We’re contemplating how to find beauty in all the different kinds of weather that grace our journey and, subsequently, not turning away from it for fear that it will pass. We want to turn our faces to the rain and the sun and the wind so that we can have momentous gratitude for all of it… even if just for a moment!

Take in every little bit of your weekend, REVOLUTIONARIES!

EVENTS

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

ANNOUNCEMENTS

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

  • Gender Odyssey is coming up at the end of August! Aunty Kate is doing the keynote and the programming looks rad! Even if you can’t go to the whole conference a lot of the community programming is FREE! Check it out!
  • Some music and art love!
    • Heart of Art Gallery : This gallery/event space just popped up into our awareness and we are loving everything we’ve seen! We haven’t made it out yet but hope to soon! Let us know if you go to anything! 80’s night coming up!!!
    • Annenburg Space for Photography just popped onto our radar (okay, full disclosure we weren’t doing anything artsy or cultured- we saw banners in Highland Park while we were getting vegan donuts at Donut Friend). We’re hoping to catch the Emerging exhibit soon. We’re also interested in this lecture on Radical Love. Lots of great free events!
  • OCFTM Annual Beach Party coming up on September 19th!

RECOMMENDATIONS

Making art if/when the inspiration hits is an amazing way that we are in practice of momentous gratitude! Making great art takes nothing less than full surrender to your desire to get it out of yourself and into the world!

A little queer folk to send the message home.

“I ain’t to proud to show my pain, to call out loud in the Northwest rain, and wash… my tears away…” 

Enjoying the show (all of it),

The COM|PASSionate REVOLT Community<3

How is everyone feeling? We’re a little low energy. It’s been a busy few weeks!

ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • You’ve done plenty of volunteering and advocacy this year! How about you do something for your queer kinky unicorn heart and run away to Amorous Revolt? Amorous Revolt is queer kinky camping, “To celebrate our bold love, our brilliant spirits, our playful (and sometimes serious) sex, our creative relationships, our radical interdependence, our perfect bodies, and our unstoppable power and agency.”
  • Hey younger COM|PASSionate REVOLUTIONARIES looking for something fun to do this summer?? How about Brave Trails— a leadership summer camp for LGBTQ Youth & Allies?! Folks that are our age or older– we know what you’re thinking– where was this camp when we were in high school?? Well, you can still go help out by being a camp counselor or leading a workshop! Go check them out!
  • All of these internet shenanigans too much? Need to digitally detox? How about checking out Camp Grounded: Summer Camp for Adults! CA camp is over but you can still take a road trip to hit the North Carolina camp in August!
  • Gender Odyssey is coming up at the end of August! Aunty Kate is doing the keynote and the programming looks rad! We’re still not sure if we’re going to make it up Seattle but we’re crossing our fingers! We’ve heard the community and events around the actual conference programming is also the jam! Check it out if you can or put it on your roadtrip wishlist!
  • Some music and art love!

RECOMMENDATIONS

Recommendation this week… don’t take yourselves or this healing process to seriously. Honor it because it’s fucking courageous work, but know that as long as you get the sentiment, the way you get there doesn’t matter.

Letting the bullshit float away,

Happy Friday everyone!

How are your, beautifully broken and thriving spirits doing as we close another week? We’ve been challenging ourselves to confront the balance between knowing when to stay still and when it’s time to lean into movement. We’ve been meditating on what is needed to wash away what is keeping us from clarity.

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/279575089342983255/

It’s not always clear or easy but we see it shimmering there beneath the surface. So we’re committing to take time and make space to see the whole picture.

RECOMMENDATIONS

Figure out what gets you clear and grounded. We’ve been spending some extra play time in Ojai recently. A little camping therapy and showering in a waterfall on a summer morning does seem to cure all wounds.
