Gather with BLUE JAGUAR: Dark Moon Community Circle

  • Blue Jaguar East Hollywood, Los Angeles United States (map)

This meetup is hosted by Los Angeles QUEER Healers, and open to all QUEER and QUEER friendly folks. 

Temple Los Angeles is pairing with Magick Makers in the community to bring other focuses to come around in circle. We GATHER around in Wisdom, this Dark Moon Community Circle. 


There is a lot going on in the political and social spheres these days and I have been in conversation with many folks recently about what we can do / what we can contribute as a spiritual community. I definitely don't have the answers, but we may be able to come up with some collective possibilities -- so we will be hosting a monthly gathering (on the new moon each month -- to honor new beginnings and possibilities) between now and november, to discuss the intersections and practical implications of spirituality and politics. LA Queer Healers will be partnering with the Temple-LA meet-up group on this gathering as well. We are building queer spiritual community!

Our first Dark Moon Gather will be on Monday, June 6 at 7:30pm at my space in East Hollywood (RSVP for address). What can we do as a spiritual community in the face of current politics?

How can we offer up collective healing to our social and political spaces? How are we caring for ourselves and others during this time? This is Free space and in the spirit of our Meditation + A Potluck meet ups, this will also be a potluck. Bring yourself, a friend, a question (or a hope) and some food to share. Whatever you bring will be enough. Note: This is an open space and all are welcome to participate -- and do not have to be queer or trans* identified to attend.

About Stephanie Syd Yang:

Stephanie Syd Yang / Blue Jaguar is Love: I am a mixed race (Taiwanese, European-American), queer healer who believes that community transformation begins by first accepting where we are, who we have been and then dreaming into what can be. The medicine I offer the world is deeply rooted in my relationship to the earth, the 4 elements and the magic we co-create with them. As a healer, I weave together shamanic and earth-based practices that are grounded in Buddhist principles of interdependence, impermanence and karma. My work focuses on the lived and inherited experiences of women of color and queer/genderqueer/trans people. My work also offers spiritual support for eating disorders, relationships + sexuality, and moving through grief + loss. Through my practice, I make Bird Essences (vibrational elixirs), Bird Medicine Candles and will be releasing my next book: Bird Wisdom: Accessing Powerful Messages for Emotional + Spiritual Growth in Summer 2016.
