I am sitting on an out of town bus that’s barrelling towards my future. Pleasure Activism by @adriennemareebrown
is my companion and I am thinking of you. You my community, my fellow tender brave hearted humans wanting to love this life fully, to create transformation, to bring and experience healing, to fully become, to belong.
I’m on my way to Prince Edward County where I will spend most of the next month. In many ways, I have set this time aside as a writing retreat to work on my book. Other than a small handful of clients, I am giving myself over to the work of writing. Right now, the book begins with a quote from amb that says “I write what I need to read.” It’s an invocation to spirit and to amb’s spirit that my work may give me what I need and what I want, and from that overflow to you.
What I need right now is to live into a future I have never seen, to live into an alignment of who I am and the shape of my life, to courageously build the model as I go. Yesterday I did two very brave things. I spoke to the CBC about fostering queer sacred space (the article was in response to my old church voting against gay marriage) I also went on @beccapiastrelli
‘s podcast to speak about how patriarchy is inherent in christianity and my own journey deconstructing both of those belief systems.
I need a world that is shaped by feminism. I need a world in which we recognize that all living beings are the sacred.
I need a world in which it is safe to claim my power, speak my truth and ask for what I need.
To live this kind of world into being, I am first fostering this kind of world within myself, and my life.
It is messy, deeply satisfying work. I am living with more integrity than ever before and much of that is coming from being willing to speak up during conflict. Shit, even create conflict in the first place.
I have so much to tell you. It is only a matter of time, and I am so grateful to be taking that time now.
Deep gratitude to my skilled editor @aemlewis
for being gracious with my deadlines, @tara_mcmullen
for inviting me into your home and @tanyaneumeyer
for always being my number one fan😘
