Cabaret 88
The MN LGBT Therapists Network's 25th anniversary event at Patrick's Cabaret was hands down Pop Rocks awesome!!  There was much schmoozing, along with delish food, belly laughs, prizes, and scads of community goodwill.  Madonna was EVERYwhere, and the music, slideshow, archival display and member stories all took us back.  Our fabulous volunteers helped make it all come off smoothly.  Jim Robinson and Table Salt Productions tickled our funny bones till they hurt.  And did you notice how Cyndi Lauper and Richard Simmons were the perfect guides on our trip?  Thanks to all who came out to celebrate!

Relive the evening by listening to White Ash's (mostly) Late 80's Mix Tape.

The Foundations of Mindful Therapy 2014

5 sessions on 2nd Fridays in 2014 - 9am - 12pm
Hiawatha Oaks Station Apartments - Mpls - .pdf flyer

Co-facilitated by member Tom Glaser (aka Richard Simmons) & Patty Hlava

This series of five sessions will assist the practitioner in being able to identify a personal mindfulness practice, understand the meaning of presence, build mindfulness skills, and become more at ease with the integration of mindfulness in the psychotherapy process.  Learning will be accomplished through didactic teaching, interactive and experiential learning, and personal practice. Specific exercises and recommended readings will be shared. An outline of the five sessions is:
  • 1/10 Overview (co-facilitator panel; exercises)
  • 2/14 Personal and spiritual practice (Jil Leverone)
  • 3/14 Developing presence (Tom Glaser)
  • 4/11 Skill building (Patty Hlava)
  • 5/9 Integration (co-facilitator panel; discussion)


BOP Chic Chat
Chic Chat 
is for anyone who identifies as female or as within the scope of femininity, as well as those who identify as genderqueer. This includes all who identify as women -- cis and trans -- as well as those people who may not identify using the word "woman," but who still may feel identity-based connections to female or feminine genders.
