Meets on the First Saturday of Every Month
The Gay-Centered Inner Work Club invites anyone interested to participate in helping cultivate depthful community that celebrates the divine nature and potential of same-sex love through psychological work, including how you don’t have to be gay to see and appreciate your own unique vision through this particular lens. The Club emphasizes development of a subjective attitude in self and with others through mutual exploration into relevant topics starting with the evening’s theme with its related theory and practice, as well as any pertinent dreams, fantasies, memories, and especially feelings that may range all the way from unpleasant or unacceptable, such as fear, shame and anger, on to the more positive side, including joy, desire, love and Uranian Eros. Gay liberation is here approached psychologically as a subjectively experienced freeing up of ego-Self relations and their healthy development the destructive clutches of unconscious complexes arising from heterosexist parental dynamics and other early childhood traumas.
A Uranian way of connecting with one another would be to start within the gay psyche, where the deeply gratifying work of fey psychological alchemy occurs, undertaken chiefly by productively engaging those complexes and other big feelings and issues so as to transform the lead of what internalized homophobia has ruinously wrought into the phoenix gold of better gay self-actualization, what is a challenging but deeply rewarding effort to be best undertaken at the Club meeting in supportive communion with like-minded others. We can in this way practice choosing to create a world of genuineness, beauty and creative possibilities.
Don’t forget to bring a notebook in which to write and draw! The experience will be facilitated by Chris Kilbourne, long-time activist, and is sponsored by the nonprofit educational corporation Treeroots.
