Adventure OUT programs to continue over winter break

Submitted by Brandon Haddock

The K-State LGBT Resource Center, in conjunction with the K-State drama therapy program, will continue to offer the Adventure OUT program virtually through the Winter break for students, faculty, staff and community members. 

Open Call: Virtual Open Call will take place from 1-2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 12, and 3-4 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 17, via Zoom — Zoom code: 7073946062. This meeting is an opportunity to discuss topics relevant to you with an informed facilitator. Bryant Mehay, certified therapeutic recreation specialist, and Benjamin Goldman will host Open Call. This is not a replacement for mental health services. If you are experiencing mental and emotional strain due to a stressful environment, please reach out to Counseling Services at 785-532-9627 or the K-State Family Center at 785-532-6984. We want to ensure your privacy and safety, that's why the Zoom lobby will be used so that people interested in participating need to be let in rather than being able to just join in the middle of a conversation. You may experience a wait time to get in if there is a lot of interest that day.

Storytelling: AdventureOUT welcomes Goldman, a first-year drama therapy master's student, as the host of AdventureOUT with Storytelling from 1-2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 12, via Zoom — Zoom code: 7073946062. This series of sessions will focus on helping you learn the art of the story through exercises and games. Topics covered will include relaxation, growing creativity, visualizing your story, therapeutic storytelling vs. performance storytelling and presentational styles.

Progressive Muscular Relaxation, or PMR, will take place 2-3:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 13, via Zoom — Zoom Code: 7073946062. PMR is a full-body guided meditation, focused on mindfully relaxing the muscles of your body. This session of PMR will be facilitated with a prerecorded tape of the activity with a warmup and closing conducted by Mehay. All you need to participate is something to write with, a piece of paper, and a space that you can lie or sit down where you will not be disturbed.
