    JOY – A Queer Heart Tradition -♥-
    Sweet Juicy Heart at the Awaken Studio Toronto

    How is it possible to find JOY in anything?

    Today as I prepared food for the gathering of the Queer Heart Talking Circle I found myself in a totally joyous state. A state similar to what I might find myself in as I prepare to go on a vacation, prepare my home for a special guest, or drive to the airport in anticipation of bringing home a family member. This JOY seemed strange to me and I pondered for a few moments and realized the profound and grounding effect of preparing food for the group of men who will gather, share their stories, lives and loves.

    The Queer Heart Talking Circle has become a tradition within my realm, my life. Just as some celebrate the tradition of Christmas, get excited, feel joy and thrill at the preparation involved. Once a month I prepare for for this gathering of men, I get excited, feel joy and I get totally thrilled as I prepare food, prepare the space, polish the talismans that we will hold as we speak, place the candles and open the door.

    This thrill and total state of JOY is something that I hold dear to my heart. I feel myself becoming powerful, free and clear as I enter this state of JOY. I know that this state is possible as it comes out of the tradition that we hold in the Queer Heart Talking Circle. This tradition of being KIND, GRACIOUS and CONSIDERATE of others, this tradition of feeding one another and holding space for each other as we each take our space, this tradition of gathering and holding each other in loving light. These traditions create a unique and distinct atmosphere, an atmosphere and place where we can truly be ourselves as we create expressions and extensions into the world, of our unique and individual LOVE and JOY. Writing this thrills me. Posting this thrills me. Feeling the JOY of anticipation thrills me.

    I am so totally looking forward to gathering and being held within the Queer Heart Talking Circle.

    The Queer Heart Talking Circle monthly at the Awaken Studio in Toronto. Share the JOY.

    Awaken Studio
    Looking to the future

    June 1, 2016 – As I begin the cycle and prepare the foundations for the practices and explorations that will be created at the Awaken Studio over the the next months and indeed into and through the remainder of 2016 and the first half of 2017. The focus of this next journey at the Awaken Studio and within my practice with clients and my own personal practice is the exploration and embodiment of Masculine Energy.

    The JOURNEY to the Divine Masculine – Sacred Male Energy

    “Male Shakti is one of the most potent powers on the planet. What are you using it for? What are you living for? Are you fighting against love or for love? Are you fighting from your wounds? From your anger, your fear, your disappointment, and disempowerment? Are you lashing out to hurt others because you have been hurt yourself? Are you programmed to defend because you have felt attacked so many times? Is there a cold place in your heart that no longer cares?”

    From: True Masculine Essence
