I want to invite you INTO community.

To gather, pause, bend, fold (and unfold), meander, linger, wander, bumble, flail... be curious, be creative... together, IN community.

Into this space where we can get to know each other, share stories and experiences.
Where we can have conversations about ALL of the things.
And where we can support those conversations …reflections, insights, challenges… with creative care practices …like art!

This is a space for us to show up as we are - to get curious about building (and maintaining) creative care practices, and community.

This community space is for folks identifying as women, and/or queer, non-binary, genderqueer.

I don't make this decision lightly, or without a lot of thought. AND... in this moment, in this world, with all that is whirling around and IN us ...we need pockets of reprieve. This is a wee pocket of reprieve, from SOME of the (often invisible) patriarchal care-taking.

This is also something that we can collectively discuss, and choose to shift in the future. For now, this is our starting place.

Thanks for showing up. I'm glad you're here!

And, WELCOME to our brilliantly warm, generous, curious, playful, and creative gaggle of delightful folks.

About Shauna

Art therapist and artist... neurodivergent, queer, post-menopausal, swearing, laughing, bumbling, creative curiosity advocate.

I'm VERY invested in building and being a part of creative community care... and finding DIFFERENT ways to understand (and support ourselves in) our lived experiences. I work with folks in a few different ways... private therapy (art therapy & Brainspotting), ongoing workshops & support groups... and now with this new community platform!

I am located in Victoria BC, on the glorious ancestral lands of the Lekwungen/Songhees & Esquimalt peoples.
