MOONWORK: somatic practice for queers

MOONWORK: somatic practice for queers


MOONWORK is a somatic practice group for queers that has been running since september 2018. we gather most tuesdays for group practice, orbiting the moon’s phases through a loose thematic pattern of radical desire, consent, and lineages, exploring our embodied relationships with ourselves, each other, and our lineages of blood, choice, community, experience, and impact. our practice aims to reweave threads of queer kinship to create a resilient somatic culture of nurturance & reciprocity that resists the white supremacist & colonial culture that underpins queerphobia.

each week we meet, participants receive a creative prompt to carry into their personal practices. each seasonal cycle includes one guest workshop, facilitated by a queer somatic/artistic practitioner of colour. our intention is to work intimately & deeply, in months & years rather than weeks. our engagement with each other & this space is guided by a collective protocol.

as a still-young offering grounded in emergence & resilient change, it is likely that the structure of MOONWORK will expand &/or shift over time. the core is strong & clear; the rest is adaptable, responsive cocreation with the current group. rooted in queer ancestral lineages, we circle the question, “how do we embody & act from our power with integrity?”


MOONWORK is a closed group of maximum 13 participants (in its current shape). fees are charged as a monthly subscription at $137 CAD, with an invitation for BIPOC participants to request a lower rate, in recognition of structural wealth inequality created by white supremacy. as always, 10% of what is collected is redistributed as settlement reparations to Indigenous & Black individuals & liberation efforts.

we currently have space for 3 new participants to join us in september 2019! if you’d like this to be you, please send your application by friday, 20 september at noon. you will hear back within 24 hours & if joining this month, your first MOONWORK group practice will be tuesday 24 september 👯
