Women And Gender Non-Conforming Folks interested in personal growth, awakening. empowerment, and healthy culture.
We are trans-gender and non-transgender women and other gender non-conforming folks of any and all orientations (lesbian, bisexual, pansexual, straight, queer, etc) learning about and sharing in Personal growth and holistic culture and community. We are engaged in healing, growing and creating our right life, healthy culture, friends and family of choice.
In our culture, we are conditioned and programmed from birth with the script of the dominators of our culture. In this community we bond, grow, learn, unlearn, celebrate life. As a result of our conditioning from our society and our biological families, we act in ways and create a life that is counter to our own and our collective benefit. Through presentations, instruction, practices, video, creative expression, group exercises, healing practices, love, play, and emotion in safe created space, we will allow our spirit, our soul, our minds and our physical body to return to our essential state (to our essence) in connection to all (rather than in isolation). When we speak of personal growth we are creating a life that is
- More and more Conscious
-Living a life toward Meaning
- being Considerate of the effects our thoughts, emotions, choices and actions have on ourselves, others, the world
-Acknowledging the connection between ourselves and everything everyone and everything that appears not us

Decorum and agreements: Respect for oneself and others. Consideration of others. Do what is true and right for oneself and do right by others. Camaraderie, support, love, growth and connection and community are our goals. We look to build someone up not tear them down. We will discuss shadow (or unhealthy patterns), but in a loving supportive manner, and we will practice healthy patterns. Personal antagonistic attack will not be tolerated. Each one teach one. Humility allows growth, defensiveness prevents it. Change is life and life is change. Embrace change and the ride may be more enjoyable. Flexibility allows more peace. A grateful heart may allow peace and happiness. Awareness of feelings allows choice instead of reaction.
