COM|PASSionate EVENTS

Happy Friday COM|PASSionate REVOLUTIONARIES!

How goes the start of summer for everyone?? Here in Southern California we’ve been oscillating between the summer sun, June gloom, and the much needed breaks for drizzle that aren’t nearly enough to quench our ever present drought.

It’s been sweltering and sweaty and altogether lovely.

We’re committing to enjoy ALL of it.

There are so many fun things happening this summer we fear we might float away into adventure dreamland so we’re doing our best to stay rooted, grounded, and centered in gratitude and presence. Here are some things we’re excited about this week and in the upcoming months!

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 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!
  • 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!

RECOMMENDATIONS

 

We want to give an extra shout out to Brave Trails this week! An LGBTQ Youth and Allies Leadership Summer Camp so close to our own neck of the woods?! We can’t help but be a little smitten!

Folks that would like to support by leading a workshop- the due date for proposals is Monday 6/15/15! They’re also still in need of cabin counselors!

Happy Friday COM|PASSionate REVOLUTIONARIES!

We hope you had a fabulous week! We’ve been contemplating being unicorns in a pony world and how we might make the world a more unicorn affirming place. We’re not sure exactly what the sparkling glittery path will be just yet but we wanted you to go into your week knowing that it’s being planted, dreamed and watered.

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!

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.”)

Good Morning, REVOLUTIONARIES! Guess where we are???

As you read this, we’re bumbling about our AirBnB straightening bow ties, latching suspenders and doing our last pre-conference run throughs in Austin, TX! We’re so excited to be sharing and plotting a little COM|PASSionate REVOLUTION with the lovely individuals, couples and providers at the  Contemporary Relationships Conference!

We hope you all are well… and wanted to send you a little reminder…

ANNOUNCEMENTS

RECOMMENDATIONS

A few words in favor of getting lost…

http://more-than-ideas.tumblr.com/post/116545001201/narcotic-feeling-lost-is-an-awful-feeling
http://more-than-ideas.tumblr.com/post/116545001201/narcotic-feeling-lost-is-an-awful-feeling

Sometimes when you’re not sure where to go, when no path looks familiar, when you’re not really sure which path is the road worth taking or the road less taken, it’s not a bad idea to get lost.

Take a breath, get your bearings, see adventure rather than mishap. Meet your day with The Fool as your guide.

Lost and very lost are not such bad things.

Who knows who you’ll meet there and what you’ll find.

In solidarity,

COM|PASSionate REVOLT

(Currently getting lost in Austin, TX, but thinking about you)

Happy Friday REVOLUTIONARIES! We’re posting events early this week to remind you that registration for the Contemporary Relationships Conference closes at midnight!

We’ve been on an upswing back into a normal schedule of productivity. Hustling and bustling about. Dreams of community gatherings dancing in our heads. We want this space to feel stable, consistent, present but we also want to be present in ourselves so we can share those experiences here.

{Image Credit: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/3307399703067466/}
{Image Credit: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/3307399703067466/}

With that in mind we’re meditating on how to create balance in our schedules. We want to pause and simmer and lie still.

We want to take time to waste time.

We want to commit, not only to take a road less traveled, but to wander off the road all together.

We want to let our hair fall down, let our heads rest still, feel warm concrete beneath us, and throw concerns of pristine cleanliness to the wind. An adventurers garb should be covered in dirt when the dust settles from a good story waiting to be re-told.

Pause, simmer, repeat, REVOLUTIONARIES.

RECOMMENDATIONS

Feeling like some quiet time at home is what you need? How about a little Radical Self-Care and Body Love???

  • Check out Mara Glatzel’s internet space where she offers meditations on Brave Love, Sacred Celebration and Daily Permission for Women.
  • Need a little movement? Check out Anna Guest-Jelley’s Curvy Yoga website. Find tips, videos, words and classes for YOUR yoga body rather than “the yoga body” we’re often inundated with in internet media.
  • Need some quiet time at home? Need some radical self-care and body love? We highly recommend settling in for some quiet time at home, radical self-care and body love. You know what to do.

Happy Friday REVOLUTIONARIES!

Life has been busy. Master plans have been made, re-made and tossed aside. We’ve been meditating on the importance of staying grounded and the magic healing power of getting swept away.

Temperance and deep breaths, friends. Temperance and deep breaths seems to be the ticket.

We hope you take time to get lost in dreamland and scrawl some love notes to yourself. Whether your love notes are a yoga class when your to do list is growing, a pause to switch on a lamp and journal when your day is dark or childlike chalk doodles where there could be neat clean sidewalk we encourage you to write with abandon! Place your love notes out in front of you, breathe them in, scatter them carelessly around your heart space and check in with which ones make you soar the highest… when you find them… write those love notes three more times…. scatter again…. repeat.

Happy Friday REVOLUTIONARIES!

We know that posts have been a bit off kilter (and off schedule) here in our tiny little loving space on the inter webs. There’s has been travel, conferences, exams and general life that has been taking up a lot of our brain, body and heart spaces recently. We’re ready for some slow cooked, cell phones turned off, shoes left at the door, sleeping bags thrown on the couch for unexpected sleepovers, alarms snoozed, 2pm brunches, super low pressure hangout/chill time this way. We hope that along with all the wonderful revolution everyone is stirring that you’re also making a little space for the all important deep slow breath this weekend. If you’re looking for a little COM|PASSionate trouble, as always, here is our event round-up and announcements for upcoming fun community loving!!! 🙂
