Event Details

So little space is gifted to sadness and grief; frequently, these emotions are bypassed and sidelined. Caritia believes honoring, acknowledging, and releasing grief can be liberating for all aspects of your body and life. How can the practices of kink intentionally support opening up of self? Supported by the ritual container of collective gathering.

Caritia invites participants into this collective space to speak to grief as a companion through the body, acknowledging the challenges and choosing to sit together in compassion.

Participants may practice solo or in a room with others. Choosing 1 or 2 kink practices that would allow for this special moment. Caritia will guide you with exercises, writing prompts, and moments of pause and silence.

It is advised that each participant select a kink practice that they have done previously so that no one’s focus is drawn away from the grief tending we are sitting with. Participants are welcome to write to Caritia with any additional questions they may have.

Who is this event for?

LGBTQIA+ describes the full spectrum of non-mainstream sexual orientation and/or gender identity, meaning: lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, transgender, non-binary, genderqueer/fluid,

Friends describes people of any and all kinds of gender and sexual identities who are aware and respectful of the necessity, needs, and boundaries of a queer safe(r) space and its marginalized community.

When you consider yourself a friend you show acknowledgement to and are respectful of everyone’s self-expression and do not assume, presume or project non-consensual ideas onto others. You actively request and use people’s chosen pronouns. You remain mindful of the fact that Karada House is first and foremost a space for queer people that you are also invited to attend. You have a genuine concern for the well-being of LGBTQIA+ people and remain in awareness of heterosexual and gender straight privileges.

Friends don’t have to be perfect. None of us are. We request that we all pro-actively work and strive to be good friends and allies to marginalized people.

Facilitator

Caritia

About Caritia: lives as an LGBTQAI+, gender-fluid, BiPoC (assigned female at birth) individual. Walking a path with invisible disabilities and the living challenges which accompany that life. Educator, creative and ongoing work in process, whose advocacy for establishing boundaries is as strong as the desire to love with truth and honesty. On a quiet mission to destigmatise difference and return power to each individual. Using the language of kink to the point of geeky excitement. Caritia’s fascination with the root/the body stems from a longing too deeply ‘listen’ to (her) body holistically, from the inside out.
