COM|PASSionate Events

Hello, friends.

We were wondering around Ojai looking for tarot cards when we found this store and these signs.

Doors

The chalkboard sign in front of the “For Sale” signs reads:

“This is a period of divine accomplishment for me. Closed doors are now opening before me. Everything I undertake leads to success in accordance with the highest possibilities of my destiny. I celebrate the abundance and kindness of the Universe.”

We know that this world doesn’t hold all of us in the same way but we maintain hope that the universe does. In these times when we’re remembering and honoring the closed doors and the darkness, we want to also see the light. We want to see “the abundance and kindness of the Universe” reflected in our gathered communities and chosen families.

Love each other this weekend, offer silence to the hearts quieted too soon, and take great care with the ones still beating.

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

Morning, dear community!

Is everyone enjoying the brisk Fall chill? We’re still reveling in it… and by reveling we mean hibernating. Have we mentioned how much we’re in support of the occasional seasonal hibernation?

Sure, it’s important to get out and run and play and breathe deep but never underestimate the healing power of a thick comforter, a hot cup of tea, and a good book. Know, that whether or not you get out of bed and move through a super productive day that you’re always in a new moment of transformation. Have faith that whether or not you mark off a giant to do list you’re already winning at moving through a season change.

Let the Fall renew you. Open your eyes. Full steam ahead.

Crashing

Check out what’s going on if you need a break from your well deserved hibernation!

Dear Community,

Hello loved ones…

You beautiful majestic creatures! Some of us are heading out of town and off to Oahu, HI. It’s less of a vacation and more of a pilgrimage back home. Still, we certainly can’t complain.

We plan to breathe in as deeply as the humidity will allow us, send gratitude to every mosquito that makes it known we’re impeding upon their turf, and generally slow the fuck down… at least for a few days.

We’ve been rushing around getting ready for our trip and trying to ready this space for some upcoming changes when we realized what we really needed was to slow down and clear space… that all this was enough.

After we stumbled upon this little twitter truth bomb we took some deep inhales and exhales. We heated up a yoga room and used this as mantra while we sweated, stretched, strengthened, and played with our local yoga community. We opened our hearts and let our skin weep. We twisted and collapsed into heaps of flesh, grounded to earth. We marinated in the healing sacred scent of Palo Santo and rhythmic resonation of each other’s breath.

So, that was our long winded way of saying, we’re taking a short break and will return to regularly scheduled programming soon. In the mean time, if you’re local, here’s a list of who’s holding down the fort…

Oh, hello friends!

We’re back from our travels and the summer is starting to cool down. It’s not here quite yet but we can feel the change in the seasons hovering just around the corner. We’re still  sweating around midday but there are these moments in the morning while we’re drinking our coffee (and moments in the evening when we’re drinking our whiskey) where you get this little crisp whisper beckoning in the Fall.

Take a lesson from the Fall breeze, friends. Take a moment in the mornings to look out on the horizon, take a moment in the evenings to look up at the stars, take a moment when the world feels like it’s rushing by to take a long deep breath.

Sure, it’s hot, but it’s summer! Don’t rush through it. Change is coming. Don’t be scared of it. Everything is cycle. Seasons change, identities transform, day turns to night. Sink into it with peace and contentment. Breathe it in and let it fill your lungs with stars.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

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

  • Long Beach First Fridays! Art Walk, Shop, and Dine! Spend some time outdoors enjoying the summer nights. Tonight’s the night!
  • Downtown Santa Ana Artwalk! Already have plans for tonight? How about Santa Ana’s September Art Walk tomorrow night 9.5.15 or September Artwalk After Party Sunday night 9.6.15???
  • OCFTM Annual Beach Party coming up on September 19th!

RECOMMENDATIONS

Is all this feeling like too much? Do you feel weighted down, discontent, lacking in access to light? We would love for you to sit in the abundance and potential of the changing seasons with us but want to validate that there are multiple things that bedevil our potential and agency which in turn instigate our scarcity anxiety.

If you’re feeling the weight of other oppressive forces getting in the way of enjoying the night as much as you enjoy the stars or breathing in the fall breeze as deeply as you soak up the summer sun, meditate on how to expunge oppression from your life while you listen to this playlist from The Collective Tarot’s interpretation of The Devil/Oppression.

Heyo ADVENTURERS!

Is everyone ready for the weekend?

We’ve been thinking a lot about change and journey- all the ways that we plan for the worst and hope for the best. We’ve been contemplating the positive potential of intentions versus the negative potential of expectations. We’ve been doing our damn best to travel with the spirit of The Fool and the wisdom of The World.

{Image Credit: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/77616793554654339/}

We’ve been thinking about what it means to traverse the road of life in this way. We’ve been asking ourselves how to sink into trust that this is the best way to live. We’re taking road trips and paths less traveled. We’re stopping to smell roses (and fennel and sage and lavender) that we find on the side of the road. We’re uncovering wonders in each other and treasures in ourselves.

  • 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!
    • 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

We are going to make it up to Seattle for Gender Odyssey next week so we’re going to leave you with some travel music.

We’ll miss you SoCal but all the good coffee will help ease the pain! ❤

Missing you,

Happy Friday COM|PASSionate REVOLUTIONARIES!

Slowdown

We’re continuing to sink into summer– the heat, the slow down, the rush to get outside, the retreat back into the a/c, all of it… but we’re trying to get stuck in the slow down.

We’re soaking in the sun, whether dry or muggy, we’re not rushing to wipe away the sweat– the cleanse, the renewal, the epic journey of our internal body systems manifesting on our skin.

We’ve been pausing to slow our rituals, take time to honor our explorations, and lay our bodies and our hearts down on the hot concrete.

How are you celebrating summer?
