::Players will be notified of participation status by Sunday, February 16th, 11:59pm PST::

In THE FIRST MOVE Intensive we support you in claiming your rite(right) to passage while clarifying and honing your SuperHumanPowers so you can win at the game of your life.

Together we use the CLN Deck (A QPOC, global Social/Eco Justice, Tarot-inspired, Oracle deck) to guide the creation of your “player card” — your own HeroFool card in dignity with the Fools of the Tarot. Using visioning practices, creative expression, and intuitive collaboration, we discover how the energies of the BuilderOrganizer, FeelerHealer, AlchemistArtivist, and VisionaryDreamer express themselves within each of us and inform the creation of our FoolHero. Each Player will make a full card description and have their Fool card printed at the end of THE FIRST MOVE.

::Oakland, CA::
Friday, April 23, 7pm - 9pm
Saturday, April 24, 9am - 9pm
Sunday, April 25, 9am - 6pm

D.J.E.D.I. Commitment
We are D.J.E.D.I, ever students and practitioners of Deep-listening, Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion. We are committed to the possibility that our collective and individual Creative Liberation Now has the potential to transform us out of the white supremacist, patriarchal, extractive capitalist society, where toxic masculinty, "whiteness", and extractive practices are no longer systemically prioritized and used in harmful ways against us all. We invite you to consider how your resources (of all kinds) come from these systems or despite them, and how they can be used to disrupt and offset them and create new ones. We invite you to reflect on your current and historical (familial/ancestral/societal) privileges and access to resources (especially land, housing, money, institutional education, self care, health care, safety, citizenship, belonging, etc...) when selecting your financial contribution. Payment at the highest end of the sliding scale helps make it possible for CLN to offer redistributive & equitable “Pay What Will Get You There” participation. We invite you to ask for what you need and to offer what you can with dignity, power, and celebration!
