Join us for multi immersive peer-led therapeutic sessions on Zoom. Together we will explore self-care and wellness practices through sensory-based therapy and healing arts modalities, including:
Each week the healing arts modality will rotate from sound to writing to movement to visual arts. Over the course of the four month program, there will be 16 sessions, 4 in each modality.
Queerantine Healing, Wellness & Transformation Winter Program provides our LGBTQ+ community with a community-curated space to heal and nurture ourselves during the current global state of isolation.
We understand the severe lack of accessible and inclusive wellness resources within our vast community, as well as hesitations and restrictions that may exist for community members when seeking traditional talk therapy. Our aim in this program is to create truly accessible doorways to support our collective mental, emotional, social & physical health.
Our Queerantine is peer-led, meaning community members who are not all mental health professionals are invited to share their knowledge, experience, emotional, social or practical help fellow community members. We are invested in supporting and developing each of our facilitators as a core part of our Queerantine goals.
Queerantine is open to all LGBTQ+ individuals. Our sessions will strive to center our LGBTQ+ siblings who are often restricted from healing spaces due to economic, racial and/or psycho/physical barriers.
Each healer is rooted in a primary healing and/or arts discipline that simultaneously intersects with the other disciplines in the series to fulfill an immersive collective multi-sensory healing experience for participants.
Sessions work to rebuild networks and bridges between the mind, body and soul.
Through therapy, training, activism and the arts, Chicago Therapy Collective (CTC) strives to provide accessible and creative paths forward to advance LGBTQ+ mental health & wellbeing.
Queerantine reflects our goal and vision of tangible healing, growth, & development within our Trans and Queer community facilitated by our Trans and Queer community.
