DREAMING QUEERLY IS CURRENTLY ON HOLD.
Dreaming Queerly is a no-cost, virtual dream circle for LGBTQIA2+ folks and our loved ones.
Together we explore the personal symbolism and mysterious guidance offered through our nightly journeys.
I offer this circle as community care and solidarity with my queer, trans, two-spirit, and intersex kin. Our dreaming is vital to the future. Dreaming together is a radical act.
We meet on Zoom every 3rd Wednesday from 5-7 pm MT. Zoom room opens at 4:45 pm and closes at 5:05 pm. Please plan accordingly.
No dream experience is necessary.
Who is this for exactly? For anyone who identifies under the LGBTQIA2+ umbrella and our loved ones. Ages 16 to 120. Minors are welcome with an accompanying adult. For dreamers or people who want to dream. Lucid dreamers, active dreamers, spiritual dreamers, creative dreamers, daydreamers, and future dreamers.
What should I bring to circle? You may or may not bring a dream. You might like to have pen & paper and art supplies handy. A candle, incense, and tea may also set a dreamy mood. Please make yourself comfortable and cozy. Yummy snacks are always a good idea.
How do I prepare for this dream circle? Read through your dream journals if you have them. If you don’t have a dream journal, you can start recording your dreams today. Write your dreams down in a simple, first-person narrative using general language rather than specifics (such as “my son” instead of “Jamie”). I suggest you bring a 'mild' dream to start. One that is meaningful but not too vulnerable. All dreams are worthy of being shared and also not all dreams are appropriate for an open group. Be sensitive to others in our group.
Creative Care Circle
CREATIVE CARE CIRCLE IS CURRENTLY ON HOLD.
The Creative Care Circle is a virtual art hive for healers, caregivers, and public servants with marginalized identities and our loved ones.
In this space, we gather to unwind, restore, and support one another through mindfulness and creative wandering.
I offer this circle as community care and solidarity with my fellow healers and servants who are marginalized by systems of oppression. Our work is devotional. We deserve communal rest and renewal. Come as you are.
We meet on Zoom on the 1st Wednesday of each month from 5-6:30 pm MT. Zoom room opens at 4:45 pm and can be joined at any time after.
No art, craft, or mindfulness experience is necessary.
Who is this for exactly? Therapists, bodyworkers, nurses, paramedics, teachers, herbalists, diviners, peer support workers, sex workers, emergency workers, doctors, public health workers, tutors, outreach specialists, special educators, food service workers, astrologers, home aides, hospitality workers, doulas & midwives, sex educators, life coaches, clergy, hospice workers, family caregivers, homeschooling parents, social workers, medical assistants, classroom aides, etc. LGBTQIA2+ folks, black, indigenous, and non-white people, the neurodivergent and disabled communities, fat folks and poor folks. Ages 16 to 120. Minors welcome with an accompanying adult.
What should I bring to circle? You might like to have pen & paper and your favorite art materials or craft supplies handy. A candle, incense, and tea may also set a relaxing mood. Please make yourself comfortable and cozy. Yummy snacks are always a good idea.
What happens during a creativity circle? We gather, ground ourselves with a gentle mindfulness exercise, and set an intention for our practice. I offer a prompt for gentle guidance or share a simple technique to inspire and then we practice, creatively for 45 minutes. Towards the end we share briefly followed by a small closing ritual.

A NOTE ABOUT FREE OFFERINGS... Dear community, These gifts are experiments in anti-capitalist community building. Through these offerings, I challenge the belief that what is freely given isn't valuable. I invite you into a practice of radical reciprocity through your participation. These circles and this e-zine are sacred offerings of my time, attention, and care given from a place of devotion to my communities. My hope is that they are received as gifts of value and that they nourish your well-being. In kindness, Jess
