In January we’ll be talking about Winter Self-Care for Weary Queers: Seasonal Affective Disorder, short days, too much cold, and existential angst.
Winter is hard. Even after we get through the holiday season, it’s hard! It’s cold. It’s dark. If we’ve got mental health issues or chronic illness, these months exacerbate that.
Join us for a discussion about winter self-care. What sucks, and what helps.
This discussion will become the foundation of a downloadable resource on the topic of queerness and holiday self-care (with the consent of discussion participants – no names or identifying information will be shared without your consent, and you can choose to have your stories kept out of the document).
You can see the first of these collective documents here, extending our November discussion about queerness and physical self-care – http://tiffanysostar.com/queerness-and-physical-self-care-resource/
And the second, about queerness and holiday self-care, here – tiffanysostar.com/holiday-self-care-resource/
Our January meeting will be on January 16, from 6:30-8:30 PM at Loft 112. There will be snacks (thanks to the generous donation of one of our community members!), conversation, and, most importantly, community.
We also have a set time, date, and location for our next six months of Possibilities events – you’ll find us on the third Tuesday of each month, from 6:30-8:30, at Loft 112. There is a small fee associated with renting this space, and you can support the event by either donating at the event or becoming a Patreon supporter.
We have a new focus on self-care and self-storying for the b+ community (bisexual, pansexual, and asexual, with an intentional focus on trans inclusion), and a new framework for sustainability (you can now support this work by backing the Patreon at http://www.patreon.com/sostarselfcare).
There is no cost to attend.
This is an intentionally queer, feminist, anti-oppressive space. The discussion will be open, as they always were, to all genders and orientations, as well as all abilities, educational levels, classes, body types, ethnicities – basically, if you’re a person, you’re welcome!
It is important to note that Possibilities Calgary is a community discussion group and not a dating group.
