-♥-  JOY – A Queer Heart Tradition -♥-
Sweet Juicy Heart at the Awaken Studio Toronto

How is it possible to find JOY in anything?

Today as I prepared food for the gathering of the Queer Heart Talking Circle I found myself in a totally joyous state. A state similar to what I might find myself in as I prepare to go on a vacation, prepare my home for a special guest, or drive to the airport in anticipation of bringing home a family member. This JOY seemed strange to me and I pondered for a few moments and realized the profound and grounding effect of preparing food for the group of men who will gather, share their stories, lives and loves.

The Queer Heart Talking Circle has become a tradition within my realm, my life. Just as some celebrate the tradition of Christmas, get excited, feel joy and thrill at the preparation involved. Once a month I prepare for for this gathering of men, I get excited, feel joy and I get totally thrilled as I prepare food, prepare the space, polish the talismans that we will hold as we speak, place the candles and open the door.

This thrill and total state of JOY is something that I hold dear to my heart. I feel myself becoming powerful, free and clear as I enter this state of JOY. I know that this state is possible as it comes out of the tradition that we hold in the Queer Heart Talking Circle. This tradition of being KIND, GRACIOUS and CONSIDERATE of others, this tradition of feeding one another and holding space for each other as we each take our space, this tradition of gathering and holding each other in loving light. These traditions create a unique and distinct atmosphere, an atmosphere and place where we can truly be ourselves as we create expressions and extensions into the world, of our unique and individual LOVE and JOY. Writing this thrills me. Posting this thrills me. Feeling the JOY of anticipation thrills me.

I am so totally looking forward to gathering and being held within the next Queer Heart Talking Circle.

The Queer Heart Talking Circle monthly at the Awaken Studio in Toronto. Share the JOY.

JOY!
The pleasure and power of gathering with a group of men.
We talk, we laugh, we feel any range of emotions. We share our lives, our struggles, our triumphs, our sadness and our joy. We all have an opportunity to open ourselves and our hearts to the men who are gathered.
-♥- -♥- -♥- -♥- -♥- -♥- -♥- -♥-
As the time passes, and we have gathered now for years, there is a greater sense of wellbeing within the group.
As the time passes, and we have used this talking circle for countless rounds of sharing, there is a greater sense of community within the group.
As the time passes, and we have seen life pass through this gathering, there is a greater sense of power and strength in numbers.
-♥- -♥- -♥- -♥- -♥- -♥- -♥- -♥- -♥-
The Queer Heart Talking Circle has become this place where we can share freely, deliver both the good news and the bad news, smile with one another, put a helping hand forward, offer ourselves to one another or simply take a little step back and witness.
-♥- -♥- -♥- -♥- -♥- -♥- -♥- -♥- -♥- -♥-
The Queer Heart Talking Circle meets on the Second Sunday of the month through the year. We gather at the Awaken Studio in Toronto. We share time by speaking and sharing in the ritual of the Circle. We spend time winding in and then after a time silence begins and we wind back down talking into ourselves the fruits that have shared our witnessing. The Circle disperses and we carry each other to share a dinner to which we all contribute. The offerings are rich and full of the loving kindness, compassion, respect and honour that we all have grown to have for one another.

All men are welcome to share in this event. The next gathering is: Sunday March 13.

“It is reported that Kundalini awakening results in 
deep meditation, enlightenment and bliss. 
This awakening involves the Kundalini physically
moving up the central channel to reside within
the Sahasrara (7th) Chakra above the head. 
… Many systems of yoga focus on the awakening
of Kundalini through meditation
pranayama breathing, the practice of asana 
and chanting of mantras. In physical terms, 
one commonly reported Kundalini experience 
is a feeling like electric current 
running along the spine.”
