“The CLN experience was and still is a multi-dimensional, soul-renewing journey that amplified awareness and relationship to my effervescent earth-body and my capacity to honor the gifts-given. The CLN crew are brimming with grounded authenticity and wonderful facilitators of recognizing the potential and authenticity of others.”
~ L.B., Player in THE FIRST MOVE 2019
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, and the archetypal Hero’s/Fools’ journey. 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.
The First Move Intensive will take place in Berkeley, CA and at Chapter510 Department of Make Believe in downtown Oakland, CA. On Friday evening we orient ourselves on the passage ahead, then the next two days we spend making fools of ourselves. Saturday the 29th will be our celebration and completion.

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!
