RR – REFUGE RECOVERY – Addiction Support Group Meetings – Daily @ Online Via ZOOM
Dec 4 all-day

 

Refuge Recovery is a practice, a process, a set of tools, a treatment, and a path to healing addiction and the suffering caused by addiction. The main inspiration and guiding philosophy for the Refuge Recovery program are the teachings of Siddhartha (Sid) Gautama, a man who lived in India twenty-five hundred years ago. Sid was a radical psychologist and a spiritual revolutionary. Through his own efforts and practices he came to understand why human beings experience and cause so much suffering. He referred to the root cause of suffering as “uncontrollable thirst or repetitive craving.” This “thirst” tends to arise in relation to pleasure, but it may also arise as a craving for unpleasant experiences to go away, or as an addiction to people, places, things, or experiences. This is the same thirst of the alcoholic, the same craving as the addict, and the same attachment as the codependent.

Eventually, Sid came to understand and experience a way of living that ended all forms of suffering. He did this through a practice and process that includes meditation, wise actions, and compassion. After freeing himself from the suffering caused by craving, he spent the rest of his life teaching others how to live a life of well-being and freedom, a life free from suffering.

Sid became known as the Buddha, and his teachings became known as Buddhism. The Refuge Recovery program has adapted the core teachings of the Buddha as a treatment of addiction.

Since our launch on April 14, 2021, we’ve had over 1,700 conversations, and we now offer service 12 hours per day, 7 days per week from 3pm to 3am PT.

Fireside Project’s Psychedelic Peer Support Line offers free, confidential peer support by phone and text message to people in the midst of psychedelic experiences, people holding space for others who are in the midst of psychedelic experiences, and people integrating past psychedelic experiences. We do not provide medical care, medical assessment, or psychotherapy. People who think they may be having a medical emergency should call 911.

The Psychedelic Peer Support Line is staffed by compassionate, supportive volunteers from diverse backgrounds who are trained to listen deeply and from a place of non-judgment. All volunteers have completed our rigorous training program, which included components such as active listening, providing support during psychedelic experiences, integration, and providing support by text message.

If you are looking for free, confidential peer support during or after a psychedelic experience, please contact Fireside Project by calling or texting 6-2FIRESIDE (623-473-4733).

FAQs

Who is the Psychedelic Peer Support Line for?
  • People tripping now

  • People providing support to others tripping now

  • People wanting to talk about past trips – whether those trips two days or 20 years ago

  • People who provided psychedelic support to others in the past

What does peer support mean?

It means emotional support by people who understand what you’re going through because they’ve been there themselves.

Peer support does not include medical care, medical assessments, psychotherapy, or professional care of any kind. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 911. If you need medical care or treatment, please call a doctor or other professional. If you need mental health care, please contact a mental health professional.

Do I have to be having a “bad trip”?

No. Sometimes it’s just nice to connect with another human being, even if your trip is going just beautifully.

Is it really confidential?

Yes! You don’t have to provide us with any personal information, including your full name, and even if you do, we don’t save it. We don’t even save phone numbers. Please see our Privacy Policy.

Do I have to provide my name? Do I have to tell you what I’ve taken?

Nope! It’s all up to you. You can give us your real name, a made-up name, or no name at all.

Who are the people on the other end of the line?

We’re people who get it. We’ve been there ourselves.

But, we’re here for emotional support only. We’re not doctors or therapists, and we don’t provide medical advice or medical assessment. If you think that you or the people you’re with may be having a medical emergency, you should call 911.

What is the nature of the relationship between a caller and a person working on the Psychedelic Peer Support Line?

People working on the Psychedelic Peer Support Line are volunteers who are providing non-professional, peer-to-peer emotional support only. We want to be explicit about what the relationship is not. The relationship between support line volunteers and callers is not a doctor-patient relationship, a therapist-client relationship, a therapist-patient relationship, an attorney-client relationship, or any other type of professional relationship. This is true even if, for example, a volunteer happens to be a lawyer or a doctor or a therapist in their life outside of the context of the support line. We train our volunteers never to disclose their profession to any person with whom they communicate on the support line. No matter what the volunteer does outside of the support line, when volunteers are on the support line, they provide non-professional emotional support only.

Do you provide medical care, medical screenings, or medical assessments?

No. We provide peer support only. If you are seeking medical care, medical screenings, or medical assessments, please contact a doctor or other medical professional.

Is the Psychedelic Peer Support Line a substitute for 911, the Suicide Hotline, or other emergency services?

No.

If you believe you or someone you are with may be experiencing a medical emergency or you believe you or someone you are with are in danger, you should immediately call 911.

Fireside Project is not a suicide hotline. Callers who are intending to die by suicide, or who have a plan or the means to die by suicide are beyond the scope of the support line. Such calls are promptly transitioned to other resources, including emergency services or the National Suicide Hotline, depending on the specific circumstances. If you or someone you know is considering suicide, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

If you are experiencing a clinical or long-term health issue, you should consult a medical or mental health professional. The support line is not a substitute for professional health care, mental-health treatment, psychiatric care, or therapy of any kind. We provide no professional services of any kind, including but not limited to medical care, medical assessments, medical treatment, and psychotherapy.

Is the Psychedelic Peer Support Line a substitute for going to a doctor, therapist, or other professional?

No. We provide peer support only.  We do not provide medical care, psychotherapy, psychiatric care, or any other professional service.

If you are experiencing a clinical or long-term issue, you should consult a medical or mental health professional. The support line is not a substitute for professional health care, mental health treatment, psychiatric care, or therapy of any kind. We provide no professional services of any kind, including but not limited to medical care, medical assessments, medical treatment, and psychotherapy.

Do you provide recommendations?

No. We do not recommend or endorse any particular product, person, or service. We may refer you to sources of information. But it’s up to you to decide whether to rely on that information. We haven’t independently vetted or verified that information.

Is this service available to anyone in the world?

We currently only offer service to people in the United States. But we hope to expand internationally soon, starting with Canada.

Will you eventually offer service 24/7?

We hope so! It all depends on demand and fundraising. To make a tax-deductible donation, please click here.

What happens at the end of the conversation? Can we stay connected?

Yes, please! It can take time to process a psychedelic experience. You can call us back as many times as you’d like. We hope to support you during your journey of integration, whether that takes weeks, months, or even years. In the coming months, we hope to offer everyone weekly follow-up calls.

Can callers communicate with Psychedelic Peer Support Line volunteers outside the context of the support line?

No. To protect everyone’s privacy and safety, volunteers are instructed not to communicate with callers outside the context of the support line.

Are there restrictions on how callers can use the Psychedelic Peer Support Line?

Yes, please see our Terms of Use.

SACRED CIRCLE DANCE COMMUNITY – SUNDAY MORNINGS

photo

 

We are in the midst of a much needed movement for justice and equality. We must all speak out, join the movement, vote, give & sacrifice to bring lasting change. This dance is a call to listen to voices of color that speak of their oppression – and to act in solidarity to bring true equality. It can seem not enough to dance, but when we move with intention and consciousness, our collective awakening shifts our world and our actions beyond the dance.

DJ Blender spins tunes this Sunday, inspired by artists of color delivering their message of awakening & change.

Ecstatic Dance Online: Life, Death, Rebirth

Spring is upon us and so much new life abounds. We are separated by a global virus and death also abounds. Let’s dance, that the end can also come to parts of our lives and society that no longer serve us. May we be reborn to new ways of work, of play, of gathering, and taking care of the most vulnerable among us.

There is much that will be reborn, so let us dance, together, to bring that rebirth.

DJ Blender will re-birth the sweet tunes to take us on the journey.

“No previous experience required, just a desire to dance”

– Anonymous Dancer in 2008

""

Sacred Circle Dance is an Ecstatic Dance Community that has been meeting to dance together in Portland, Oregon every Sunday — for over a decade.

We are a warm and welcoming group of dancers who love to create something really special together. Every Sunday morning, a group of 200+ people gather and create an beautiful interactive space where music and movement happen, and while each person comes into the space with their own story, their own needs, their own reasons to be there — there is one thing we all share — and that is the love of the dance!

What makes ecstatic dance so amazing? In our opinion it is the talent and voice of the DJ in making a coherent story that allows the dancers to be transported out of their heads and into their bodies – for 2 hours. We have a half hour of warm-up music, followed by a circle where we gather to invite the dancers into an intention, then an hour and 15 minutes of dance music, after which there is a closing circle to share and integrate our experience. You can expect the music to start slowly, build in intensity and then move you back to a point of stillness at the end. Our music is great but the community is just as wonderful and filled with so many creative folks offering unique and interesting things. We hope you join us at our Sunday morning dance ~or~ our Thursday night Dance Temple, and discover why ecstatic dance is something everyone can do.

We encourage people of all ages and abilities to sink into their body in the safe, beautiful and sacred community-created space at the Tiffany Ballroom on Sunday mornings, and at our evening dance on Thursday evenings at SomaSpace in NE

{NOTE, DUE TO COVID PANDEMIC, ONLINE AT THIS TIME}

We look forward to greeting you on the dance floor!

Sunday morning 10:30am – 12:30pm PST

Thursday evenings 7:30pm – 9:30pm PST

We’ll be hosting a live online dance on Zoom teleconferencing at the regular time

It’s about helping each other understand how we’ve come to know what we know, and moving toward what we want, instead of just getting away from what we don’t want.

C – TEC Youth Services – Clackamas Achievement Program – Assisting Youth with Education and Employment Goals – Accepting Referrals @ Online event regester for details
Dec 4 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

 

 

C-TEC Youth Services’ Clackamas Achievement Program supports youth ages 14-21 in and around Clackamas County who have not obtained a high school diploma or GED and have become disengaged from education during the COVID pandemic.

Services we offer include:

  • case management,
  • financial assistance,
  • support services,
  • system navigation,
  • and community referrals.

Initial contacts with youth focus on the safety, health, and well-being of the youth and family, with an emphasis on a caring interaction to support the student holistically.

Students will work with a  Youth Re engagement Advisor (YRA) who will stay in regular contact, providing appropriate referrals to community agencies, and helping to support the student with navigating school enrollment with their individual district, alternative, or GED program. The YRA will continue to support the youth by encouraging attendance, progress, and addressing any needs or barriers.

  • Support services such as tutors, transportation assistance, school supplies, equipment, etc. will be provided as appropriate.
  • Youth will be offered dual enrollment into other programs such as C-TEC’s Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) services to leverage additional funds and services. WIOA participants are eligible for ongoing services that include transition to college, opportunities for career exploration and hands-on career exposure, work readiness training, certifications and credentials, and paid work experience.
  • Clackamas Community College is partnering to provide education services such as high school credit recovery and GED preparation and testing, however, this can be arranged with Mt Hood Community College or Portland Community College for students that are closer to these institutions.
  • Their Workforce Development Department will provide opportunities for youth over 18 that are interested in job training programs or increasing their skills. Assistance with financial aid will be offered, as well as one-on-one support with navigating processes and systems at CCC.
  • Clackamas Workforce Partnership is partnering to provide workforce development activities such as career exploration opportunities and paid work experience, as well as coordination between school districts and workforce development entities.

The YRA will continue to follow up with students and families to offer resources and support to help ensure continued school participation and progress. This program will provide trauma informed services.

__________________________
Tora! Tora! Tora! is a 1970 epic war film that dramatizes the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. The film was produced by Elmo Williams and directed by Richard Fleischer, Toshio Masuda and Kinji Fukasaku, and stars an ensemble cast including Martin Balsam, Joseph Cotten, So Yamamura, E.G. Marshall, James Whitmore, Tatsuya Mihashi, Takahiro Tamura, Wesley Addy, and Jason Robards. It was Masuda and Fukasaku’s first English-language film, and first non-Japanese film. The tora of the title is the two-syllable Japanese codeword used to indicate that complete surprise had been achieved. Japanese being a language with many homophones, it is a coincidence that tora also means “tiger”. The film had its world premiere on September 23, 1970.
The attack on Pearl Harbor was a surprise military strike by the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service upon the United States (a neutral country at the time) against the naval base at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Territory of Hawaii, just before 08:00, on Sunday morning, December 7, 1941. The attack led to the United States’ formal entry into World War II the next day. Japan intended the attack as a proactive action to prevent the United States Pacific Fleet from interfering with its planned military actions in Southeast Asia against overseas territories of the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and those of the United States. Over the course of seven hours there were coordinated Japanese attacks on the U.S.-held Philippines, Guam, and Wake Island and on the British Empire in Malaya, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

RR – REFUGE RECOVERY – Addiction Support Group Meetings – Daily @ Online Via ZOOM
Dec 5 all-day

 

Refuge Recovery is a practice, a process, a set of tools, a treatment, and a path to healing addiction and the suffering caused by addiction. The main inspiration and guiding philosophy for the Refuge Recovery program are the teachings of Siddhartha (Sid) Gautama, a man who lived in India twenty-five hundred years ago. Sid was a radical psychologist and a spiritual revolutionary. Through his own efforts and practices he came to understand why human beings experience and cause so much suffering. He referred to the root cause of suffering as “uncontrollable thirst or repetitive craving.” This “thirst” tends to arise in relation to pleasure, but it may also arise as a craving for unpleasant experiences to go away, or as an addiction to people, places, things, or experiences. This is the same thirst of the alcoholic, the same craving as the addict, and the same attachment as the codependent.

Eventually, Sid came to understand and experience a way of living that ended all forms of suffering. He did this through a practice and process that includes meditation, wise actions, and compassion. After freeing himself from the suffering caused by craving, he spent the rest of his life teaching others how to live a life of well-being and freedom, a life free from suffering.

Sid became known as the Buddha, and his teachings became known as Buddhism. The Refuge Recovery program has adapted the core teachings of the Buddha as a treatment of addiction.

Dec 5 @ 3:00 am – 3:00 pm

Psychedelic Peer Support Line – 623-473-7433

Every Day 3:00 PM to 3:00 AM PST

Fireside Project is a nonprofit that operates the first national Psychedelic Peer Support Line. We provide free, confidential support by phone, text message, and mobile app to people during and after their psychedelic experiences. Since our launch on April 14, 2021, we’ve had over 1,700 conversations, and we now offer service 12 hours per day, 7 days per week from 3pm to 3am PT.

Fireside Project’s Psychedelic Peer Support Line offers free, confidential peer support by phone and text message to people in the midst of psychedelic experiences, people holding space for others who are in the midst of psychedelic experiences, and people integrating past psychedelic experiences. We do not provide medical care, medical assessment, or psychotherapy. People who think they may be having a medical emergency should call 911.

The Psychedelic Peer Support Line is staffed by compassionate, supportive volunteers from diverse backgrounds who are trained to listen deeply and from a place of non-judgment. All volunteers have completed our rigorous training program, which included components such as active listening, providing support during psychedelic experiences, integration, and providing support by text message.

If you are looking for free, confidential peer support during or after a psychedelic experience, please contact Fireside Project by calling or texting 6-2FIRESIDE (623-473-4733).

The Fireside Project’s Psychedelic Peer Support Line offers free, confidential peer support by phone and text message to people during and after their psychedelic experiences.

 

FAQs

Who is the Psychedelic Peer Support Line for?
  • People tripping now

  • People providing support to others tripping now

  • People wanting to talk about past trips – whether those trips two days or 20 years ago

  • People who provided psychedelic support to others in the past

What does peer support mean?

It means emotional support by people who understand what you’re going through because they’ve been there themselves.

Peer support does not include medical care, medical assessments, psychotherapy, or professional care of any kind. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 911. If you need medical care or treatment, please call a doctor or other professional. If you need mental health care, please contact a mental health professional.

Do I have to be having a “bad trip”?

No. Sometimes it’s just nice to connect with another human being, even if your trip is going just beautifully.

Is it really confidential?

Yes! You don’t have to provide us with any personal information, including your full name, and even if you do, we don’t save it. We don’t even save phone numbers. Please see our Privacy Policy.

Do I have to provide my name? Do I have to tell you what I’ve taken?

Nope! It’s all up to you. You can give us your real name, a made-up name, or no name at all.

Who are the people on the other end of the line?

We’re people who get it. We’ve been there ourselves.

But, we’re here for emotional support only. We’re not doctors or therapists, and we don’t provide medical advice or medical assessment. If you think that you or the people you’re with may be having a medical emergency, you should call 911.

What is the nature of the relationship between a caller and a person working on the Psychedelic Peer Support Line?

People working on the Psychedelic Peer Support Line are volunteers who are providing non-professional, peer-to-peer emotional support only. We want to be explicit about what the relationship is not. The relationship between support line volunteers and callers is not a doctor-patient relationship, a therapist-client relationship, a therapist-patient relationship, an attorney-client relationship, or any other type of professional relationship. This is true even if, for example, a volunteer happens to be a lawyer or a doctor or a therapist in their life outside of the context of the support line. We train our volunteers never to disclose their profession to any person with whom they communicate on the support line. No matter what the volunteer does outside of the support line, when volunteers are on the support line, they provide non-professional emotional support only.

Do you provide medical care, medical screenings, or medical assessments?

No. We provide peer support only. If you are seeking medical care, medical screenings, or medical assessments, please contact a doctor or other medical professional.

Is the Psychedelic Peer Support Line a substitute for 911, the Suicide Hotline, or other emergency services?

No.

If you believe you or someone you are with may be experiencing a medical emergency or you believe you or someone you are with are in danger, you should immediately call 911.

Fireside Project is not a suicide hotline. Callers who are intending to die by suicide, or who have a plan or the means to die by suicide are beyond the scope of the support line. Such calls are promptly transitioned to other resources, including emergency services or the National Suicide Hotline, depending on the specific circumstances. If you or someone you know is considering suicide, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

If you are experiencing a clinical or long-term health issue, you should consult a medical or mental health professional. The support line is not a substitute for professional health care, mental-health treatment, psychiatric care, or therapy of any kind. We provide no professional services of any kind, including but not limited to medical care, medical assessments, medical treatment, and psychotherapy.

Is the Psychedelic Peer Support Line a substitute for going to a doctor, therapist, or other professional?

No. We provide peer support only.  We do not provide medical care, psychotherapy, psychiatric care, or any other professional service.

If you are experiencing a clinical or long-term issue, you should consult a medical or mental health professional.

Do you provide recommendations?

No. We do not recommend or endorse any particular product, person, or service. We may refer you to sources of information. But it’s up to you to decide whether to rely on that information. We haven’t independently vetted or verified that information.

Is this service available to anyone in the world?

We currently only offer service to people in the United States. But we hope to expand internationally soon, starting with Canada.

Will you eventually offer service 24/7?

We hope so! It all depends on demand and fundraising. To make a tax-deductible donation, please click here.

What happens at the end of the conversation? Can we stay connected?

Yes, please! It can take time to process a psychedelic experience. You can call us back as many times as you’d like. We hope to support you during your journey of integration, whether that takes weeks, months, or even years. In the coming months, we hope to offer everyone weekly follow-up calls.

Can callers communicate with Psychedelic Peer Support Line volunteers outside the context of the support line?

No. To protect everyone’s privacy and safety, volunteers are instructed not to communicate with callers outside the context of the support line.

Are there restrictions on how callers can use the Psychedelic Peer Support Line?
