April 13 & 14, 2018
I am thrilled to be a guest artist at the Transgender Voices Festival in St. Paul, MN, teaching an open workshop, an invited “master”class on working with non-binary voices, and some lessons that can be observed for anyone wanting to learn more about how to do this work.
What is especially wonderful about this space is that it is mostly organized by, and centers presenters that are transgender and/or non-binary. They are also are making it very accessible to anyone who is interested in coming. Please visit their page for registration!

Location: the Vortex Butterfly Bar – the Pony Shed.
The Psychopomp* is IN.
Ask a question. Roll the dice. The answer may arrive in the form of a song, a shift, a letter from the otherworlds, or some other form entirely.
There are many possible outcomes.
Even the Psychopomp cannot predict which will happen.
The outcome depends on you, your question,
and of course, the dice.
Stay for 5 minutes, or for as long as you want. Come and go as you wish.
