Gender & Beyond: 2019 Dates TBA

Trans feminine? Trans masculine? Non-binary? Genderqueer? Gender non-conforming?

Take a break from the cis majority. Build a gender expansive community. Form lasting friendships. Feel like you belong.

For a week in the woods, we create a container to explore intimacy, compassion, transparency, radical honesty, sexual freedom, and the power of community.

At our own pace, we will

  • question cultural norms around gender and interpersonal relationships,
  • learn how to recognize our boundaries, communicate them to others, and know when we are stretching them,
  • take responsibility for our feelings and needs,
  • own our privileges,
  • challenge our assumptions,
  • forge new terrain in interpersonal relationships and in community—not just conceptually, but experientially.

From this place of openness and abundance we will

  • step into our own power,
  • create a life that works,
  • nurture a community of loving people who care about each other and the Earth.

When?: June 8-14

Where?: A private retreat in the beautiful mountains of West Virginia, 2.5 hours west of the D.C. area.
