Sometimes christmas comes a little early, and you get a magical treat dropped in the middle of your schedule. Dope Moments is always a great time, but this is a very unique practice and I am so excited to have Josephine share her knowledge with us!
Here is a little of what she shared with us as to what to expect..
"The breath is your biggest healing superpower. It is with you every moment of your life. Every time we experience traumas (big and small), they imprint on our muscles and nervous system. We try and forget about these emotions by pushing them underground and disassociating from them. This might work for a while, but eventually, these buried emotions result in discomfort, disorders and dis-ease in the body. And no matter how much we want to ignore these nodes of trauma, they are there, doing quite a number on our well-being.
Breathwork motivates this trapped energy to move out of you. Breathwork is a vehicle for working through and releasing stuck emotions that are blocking you from reaching your fullest expression of self. Pushing up against these emotions with the breath can be challenging, and that is why it is important engage in this work in a safe space with an experienced guide. If you are ready to regulate your emotions, become less reactive, reset your system (mind, body and soul), oh, and finally learn to RELAX, then breathwork is for you."
SEE YOU THERE!!
For 35 years this drop-in center for LGBTQ youth has been doing great work, just two blocks from the Dance Underground! Lambert House is a Capitol Hill landmark; an essential part of our community, but IT IS SO MUCH MORE than that. They have over 20 on-going programs and resources, everything from counseling and support groups to job skills training, community meals, field trips, and youth-led activities. They provide case management and mentorship, art and dance classes. Youth at Lambert House even give back, volunteering in the community, the list goes on and on and on. Their mission is to empower LGBTQ youth through the development of leadership, social, and life skills. They literally build and suistain community for LGBTQ youth who may not get that at home or school, and in an increasingly unsafe environment for LGBTQ people across the country. Lambert House has been in this location for TWENTY SIX YEARS, and last year they found out that their home may be in danger. They are currently raising money to either move to another location, or renovate their existing one depending on what shakes out with the developer. Either way, these young people deserve better than this crap country they have inherited, and they sure as hell deserve better than getting priced out of the neighborhood. We are so proud to raise money for them this month and double down on our commitment to support LGTBQ youth in our community. The future is brown and queer and we fucking like it that way. Namaste.
BLACK. LIVES. MATTER. July 03 2017
Benefit for the Family of Charleena Lyles
On June 18th, 30 year old Charleena Lyles, a Black woman, was shot and killed by a Seattle Police officer in her home, in front of her children. Despite attending multiple de-escalation trainings, the police officer was not wearing a taser, or pepper spray, which could have saved Ms. Lyles life. Ms. Lyles family reports that she struggled with mental illness. I think two things need to be said at this point A) black lives matter, and B) mental illness is incredibly common, nearly all of us will experience a bout of mental illness in our lives, but white Americans will most likely never get shot, by a police officer no less, because they are sick. Raising money for this family won’t bring her back to life, but it’s the least we can do as a community, to show our support and to stand with others in their struggle. This happened to one of our neighbors, because of unconscious and conscious racial bias and lack of mental health services. That is totally unacceptable, we can and should do better. #blacklivesmatter #sayhername
