This is a post by Zia from Austin —– identifying myself using this composite name in order to more safely speak with the collective voice that includes myself and others who are living endeavoring at similar violent intersections.

In private Intuitive work groups we are talking here lately about CC – – – cultural competency, cultivating creativity, and consciousness of consent (!!) it has started raining very hard here. I am lucky to be inside. Lots of others aren’t.

Max M. E. Morris and myself as well as others have worked compiling resources for others surviving intersections of human trafficking in compassionate, creative communities that often have no idea trafficking is happening in their vicinity.

Friends of ours are in Austin, New York, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, Boston, and lots more places we should go on keep naming. Cc — consent, culture, communication, compassion – has important things to do with vulnerable friends being safe to create and collaborate. We are glad to be sustaining this Intuitive Public Flame. We wish for more Burners In Service to join us to make communities safe for trauma survivors.

We’re alive kicking and many wonderful things are just beginning.

Keep gentle powerful heart light candle flame burning.
