MOONWORK: somatic practice for queers

MOONWORK: somatic practice for queers


MOONWORK is a practice of making home in self, others, and the present moment, as perfect-for-now experiences that include past & future. MOONWORK is a celebration & exploration of cyclical time. it is a practice of transformation. it's a practice of change as generative & reliable, a practice of power as a vector of impact. it's a way to feel more, without overwhelm. it's a negotiation of community as care & nurturance, a constellation of communication grounded in capacity & clarity. it's a practice of commitment & desire that is tangibly backed up by your way of being & doing in this world. it's an engagement with shadow & shame that is accountable & liberatory, that supports sustainable action instead of collapse & denial. it is shedding. it is, above all, an emergent/emerging practice of the body as brilliant, wise, and worthy tool to cultivate loving resilience.

in more practical terms, MOONWORK is an ongoing online somatic practice group for queers. through weekly(ish) group somatic practice sessions, we will orbit the moon’s phases through a loose thematic pattern of the body’s 3 dimensions––length, width, depth. each season, participants will have the opportunity to reflect on & redefine their commitments to their work within this space: each participant's work will be their own, in service of the transformation & healing they seek. though participants may leave the group at any time, new participants will only be added at the start of a season, and my intention is to work intimately & deeply, in months & years rather than weeks.

as a new 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. there will be more to this offering than our 3 group practice sessions per month, but i am waiting for you to show me what you need before deciding what “more” will be. MOONWORK is a space where all of my skillsets and toolkits over the last 12+ years of study & practice are available to you. the breadth of my learning & teaching spans trauma healing, somatic & movement practices of many types, nervous system health & resilience, tarot, birth work, yoga, writing & writing workshops, queer & femme & leather lineage & ancestry, mad pride/liberatory approaches to mental health, boundaries & consent, shadow/shame work, chosen family & polyamory & non-monogamy, and an ongoing question: “how do we embody and act from our power with integrity?”
