Friends of Fractal Praxis,

It is my deep honor and joy to invite you into a one-of-a-kind ritual space, dedicated to surfacing and shedding all the stuck shit in our nervous systems from unprocessed rage, grief, frustration, and anger.

An original ceremony curated, designed, and priestessed by me and an incredible team (Phannie/RLM and Piper Rose/Shadowplay)... YES, IT'S:

Origins of this offering

Purge Church grew out of my own solo practice. πŸ¦‡

As a person suffering from C-PTSD, as an educated person, as a woman, as a decolonizing white person... I have SO MUCH RAGE that I feel for the way things are in the world, felt in both micro-interactions and macro-behaviors, and everything in between. But despite these real and rather common feelings, there are TOO FEW places to validate and express them.

  • Actual "church"/sangha/peers couldn't hold this.
  • Western models of therapy couldn't hold this.
  • My family couldn't hold this.
  • Society denies, invalidates and marginalizes experiences that go against the grain of its narratives, and so definitely cannot hold this.
  • Radical close-to-the-earth community may have gotten closest, but also didn't do the trick.

So... who else but me must hold this? πŸ₯Ή

Thus since childhood I have developed a strong tendency to bottle up and "pent up" my anger. This was necessary for survival in various situations as I was coming of age and in my young female adulthood.

The problem is, these internalized negative emotions can swirl and create toxicity and volatility in my body, mind, and also they can get misplaced/displaced into present-day relationships in the form of inappropriate eruptions. 🍾

For as long as that charge lives in me, improperly digested, unchannelled, it lives in my shadow, where it is liable to stalk my dreams and disrupt and disorder my healthy growth and relationships. πŸ‘»

Containers of "therapy" are too small. I needed something bigger.

I need NATURE, inner and outer, to hold me. 🌲🌲🌲

I need WITNESS, inner and outer, to honor me. πŸ‘οΈπŸ‘οΈπŸ‘οΈ

I need an intricate SOUNDSCAPE to engulf me... πŸ”ŠπŸ”ŠπŸ”Š and spontaneous strange MOVEMENTS to unleash me. πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ

I needed unbridled PERMISSION for these feelings, and my body as channel, to simply BE!!!! βœ”οΈβœ”οΈβœ”οΈ

Thus PURGE CHURCH was conceived. πŸ¦‡

Purge Church started as a solo practice. When nobody else was home... 🏠

and when I was feeling an ineluctable mysterious restless buzzing feeling inside of myself (that indicated I was compressed to the max πŸ—œοΈ and it was time to BUST LOOSE), ⚑

I would clear the floor, prep the stereo, wear loose or little clothing, and ready the playlist. πŸ“»

Then: I would just EXPLODE with intense primal movement until I was physically spent. πŸ’₯

In such an altered stateβ€”a cauldron!β€”like that, communion and liberation of SPIRIT is the most powerful result/medicine. πŸ•―οΈ

You know how a deer will literally shake its skin after a frightening encounter with a predator? Trauma theory says this kind of shaking helps reduce the impacts of trauma by flushing out the adrenaline and related chemicals from the system. By contrast, if we freeze up 🧊 that "charge" can remain stuck inside of us, only to emerge in distorted ways later.

To survive and get by in 2024, I trust that all of us bottle up & freeze up, to some extent. Purge Church is offered as a remedy to help flush these stuck micro-traumas out of your system. All you gotta do is shake, wiggle, rattle, roll, rock, knock, bounce, bump, stomp, pulse, shiver, quiver, grunt, grumble, tremble, crumble, flop, bop, dance, thrash, gnash, wail, flail... or whatever else feels right to YOUR body to do!.... it aaaaaaalllllllllllllll out.

Here's your official invitation to join PURGE CHURCH on June 22nd!

As subscribers to Fractal Praxis, you're hearing about these tickets FIRST! πŸ…Because there are limited number of tickets available at every price tier, we encourage you to get your tickets early so the price you want will be locked in. πŸ”’

I hope you can join us for Purge Church! It will be a ceremony to remember for a long time to come, and one that I hope will feel exquisitely supportive to your journey of feeling/emotional/somatic awareness, self-acceptance, and embodiment. πŸ€—

Because I believe:

What you feel BELONGS, and has something to teach us.

Your body is INTELLIGENT and it is ALREADY WHOLE.

May you face unwitnessed feelings to embrace them, to then release them from clogging up your shadows, for an even freer life.

In closing...

Purge Church is just 14 days away!?! 😱 So don't wait to get your tickets!

Do you have a background in space holding, therapy, or being trauma-informed? We're looking for a couple more "guardians" who will get to attend to space at no cost but who will be playing a key volunteer role during the ceremony. Message me if you're interested in this part!
