welcome strvngers

what does strvnge encounters mean to you?

strvnge encounters is a community oriented fluid platform that weaves itself around the ebb and flow of the people that occupy the space. 

why is this space needed in communities? 

existing in a society that demands so much from every person on a daily basis, a space for healing, love, and radical self care is crucial. strvnge encounters strives to be that space, where you can be unapologetic in your existence.

what do you hope you can achieve through strvnge encounters? 

a purpose. for everyone who doesn't quite fit into other organizations or spaces, and can't seem to find a purpose in their way of healing, i would hope that strvnge encounters is the place for them. i want to look back in 10 years and see community based initiatives that were cultivated at a workshop or a healing circle. 

How can we participate in StrVnge Encounters?

it would be an honor to hear from you about your interest, please email me at strange.x.encounters@gmail.com

Declutter Your Mind & Space Campaign

How many of us have unnecessary baggage in our lives? Whether it be clothes, shoes, or mental weight. Like my younger brother so wisely said to me on my birthday “Declutter yourself”. This could be applied in every aspect of our lives. Clean out the closet, or that drawer that has been accumulating random junk over the years. Clear out your mental space by clarifying intentions, or asking for forgiveness. The art of letting go is truly valuable and we’re here to help you revive it!! It’s overwhelming to begin this process of clearing out by yourself so we’re here to guide and support you as we also clear out our baggage. Also! As an incentive, we will be hosting “The Corner Bazaar” on Sunday, August 13th 2017 where you can sell all the things you no longer need! Invite anyone that you think will find this campaign helpful. We will also be posting advice and progress pictures on this page, feel free to post yours on Facebook, or Instagram using the hashtag #declutter

"sorry"

You wonder why I say sorry too much. I’ve wondered the same.

Maybe because I was raised in a home where I had to be. I had to be sorry all the time because I was wrong all the time. I’d get yelled at all the time for anything and everything.

You wonder why I say sorry too much. I’ve wondered the same.

Maybe because I’m a perfectionist. And I’m constantly setting a bar for myself to fail. It takes a lot out of me to be okay to fail, to be me, to be imperfect.

You wonder why I say sorry too much. I’ve wondered the same.

Maybe it’s because I had to walk on eggshells my whole life. I would beat myself up if I hadn’t thought things all the way through. “I should have known better.”

You wonder why I say sorry too much. I’ve wondered the same.

Maybe it’s because I got tired of walking on eggshells, thinking everything all the way through. Now I forget. So, I’m bound to be wrong.

You wonder why I say sorry too much. I’ve wondered the same.

Maybe because I’m a girl. One who was scared to speak and praised for her silence. Every time I wanted to speak I’d plan what I want to say over and over again. Repeat it once, twice, a third time until I felt okay to say that one statement, to ask that one question. You understand I never talked this much before.

You wonder why I say sorry too much. I’ve wondered the same.

Maybe because you didn’t know me before… how much I would say sorry. Maybe because I forgot how much I said sorry, forgot how I would slip it after ever sentence… how much that would comfort me, made me feel like I could fix things if they weren’t okay.

You wonder why I say sorry too much.
