2020 queer men's full moon circles17 Feb 2020
“Challenge yourself to be a healer and activist for justice. Don’t feel you have to choose one or the other. Be both. See activism as a form of social healing and interpersonal healing as a form of social justice. Transform and heal yourself as you transform and heal the world.”
feb 2019 circle altar
who: anyone socialized as a boy/man. circle is anchored by me (lawrence barriner ii). there may be other co-facilitators as desired/needed.
what: a series of healing-oriented gatherings where we will explore ways to connect with the emotional, physical, and spiritual parts of ourselves and each other.

- friday 8 may
- sunday 7 june
fall - grief
- wednesday 30 sept
- friday 30 october
- saturday 28 november
where: all of the spring circles will be at the old oak dojo. the first fall circle location is TBD. the other two fall circles will be at the old oak dojo.
why: to support healing and growth on the journey of unlearning toxic masculinity.
how: due to the depth of the work, attendance is required at two of the three circles for each season.
RSVPing is required. to do so, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, and confirm:
- which season(s) you are RSVPing for
- which dates during that/those season(s) you can and can’t attend

thanks to brandon sloan, for the conversation that lead to the spring circles being about touch. thanks to eroc arroyo-montano & gibrán rivera for the fall circles being about grief. thanks to eroc and jordan mudd for conversation about the desire to go deeper with these circles.
