Togetherness Festival: Do You See Me? (Workshop)

Don’t miss Kimwei’s workshop at Togetherness London on June 17th 2018!

We all have the desire to be fully accepted, yet being truly understood is rare. Why is this? When have we been asked to decide between inclusion and self-realization? When has it seemed necessary to go against our true nature in order to be loved?

This workshop explores the barriers that make aspects of ourselves, and others, hard to perceive, acknowledge and bring compassion to. These barriers might include societal expectations, manners, stereotyping or assumptions. The aim is to present simple but powerful tools to bring healing to our unseen qualities, encouraging connection.

You can’t be what you can’t see and you can’t be what can’t be seen. As a result, this workshop invites you to open your perception and discover exciting new realms in yourself and beautiful new ways of being with others.

Facilitator: Kimwei McCarthy

Kimwei is a singer-songwriter, university lecturer, intuitive therapist, digital nomad, blogger and lifestyle experimenter. He developed workshops which address unseen qualities as a result of his Nothing’s Binary project, which drew his attention to how aspects of us can go unseen if they don’t fit within the stereotypical frame of our physical gender. Like all our workshops, this space is inclusive to all and is LGBT+ aware.

New Music Video : Slugs & Spice

Billie and I are proud to present the 2nd in our series of Nothing’s Binary music videos. We released this to co-incide with Exeter Pride 2018. Slugs & Spice is for when you’re evil but that it has nothing to do with your gender.

Celebrating 1 Year of Nothing’s Binary

My goodness! It’s 1 year since the first Nothing’s Binary video went live, literally the day I wrote it! What a journey it’s been since then, from making the later video with Billie, to gigs where everyone already knew the words, gender workshops, events, Dartington LGBTQ+ festival (Outing) and more! Thanks to everyone who’s been involved in this journey. xxx

My next workshop will be at The Togetherness Festival, London, under the title of “Do You See Me?” https://www.togethernesslondon.com/…/6/…/togetherness-london

In the meantime, Billie has just completed the soundtrack for Edward/Edalia Day’s live show “Too Pretty To Punch”, touring in London and the South West.

Billie and I are cooking up something new for you to co-incide with upcoming Exeter Pride (May 12th)

Here’s to 1 year! Stay tuned for more.

Dartington Arts & London Workshop

Sept 27th (first posted on kimwei.com )

Delighted to be invited to an “Outing” by Dartington Arts, Totnes, Billie and I cooked up something special. Credit goes to Billie for finding this ideal song Masculine Women & Feminine Men, which we suitably romped through to contribute to Dartington’s first week-long LGBTQ+ festival. We hope to record the track soon.

We were also fortunate enough to be involved in the photoshoot to promote the event. Photography by Aubrey Simpson

I was also lucky enough this month to host a gender workshop at Ziferblat Co-working space. Thanks to all who attended and stay tuned for more workshops in the future.

Billy and I had a wonderful time at Queer Spirit Festival doing a workshop on “The Healing Power Of Being Seen As We Truly Are”. It was a huge success and already we’re being asked to do more, so watch this space!
