About the event
Please join our IndigeQueer and Two Spirit community for this online talking circle with Dr. Roger Kuhn. This is our time to circle up, reconnect, and focus on our individual and community wellness. Our circle's theme is Reclaiming Pleasure.
BAAITS presents this series of Talking Circles in response to community requests. These circles are created by and for Two Spirit, IndigeQueer, and Indigenous TG/GNC LGBQIA+ peoples, and we ask everyone who attends to be respectful of this focus.
There is no cost for our circles! We will host a monthly circle featuring different facilitators during the year. Please follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Eventbrite to receive notices of our upcoming programming.
FOR ONLINE PARTICIPATION: Here are a few points to consider for our time together in circle:
- Quiet Space: Try to find yourself a quiet comfortable location to join us from where you can focus and be fully present.
- Sacred Space: You may wish to prepare your space if you can, by burning medicine to clear it out, lighting a candle, or do other grounding practices.
- Self Care: It's always good to have water or tea ready for yourself. Sometimes circles can bring up emotions, so we often have tissue close at hand to help with our healing tears
