About LLR
Living Love Revolution is a community of people who see embodying love as an essential value in their daily lives and who come together to spread love and joy.  LLR is a non-heirarchical, self-organizing, experience-based system of healing that focuses on expansion, liberation and sovereignty.

LLR is also the life work and spiritual calling of Reverend Teri D. Ciacchi, MSW. Her work & calling are a form of integrated social change activism which results in classes, workshops, events and personal healing sessions that ask individuals to love themselves, love each other and form sustainable communities based on a love ethic.

Join Us

As always the LLR is looking for consorts and playmates who want to enter into the paradigm we are generating or who find their own work is aligned with what we are creating.

What are we creating? A vibrant alternative culture based on Love, Sacred Activism, Sacred Economics/Gift Economy, EcoMagicks, Embodied Mediation, Permaculture, “Right Use of Trash” and Holistic Integration of the Self. We welcome people who are actively working on expanding the parts of themselves that are loving, spacious, and non aggressive.

Teri and the LLR Teaching Collective invent and teach workshops and events where people learn how to understand and love themselves, counsel each other, and treat each other with respect and reverence.

In addition to the classes and events given in this newsletter, the following services are available by appointment at individually negotiated rates; including gift economy barter and trades. Free15 min consultations.

Healing Sessions for Individuals, Couples, and Small Groups
I offer my healing services to individual adults, couples, poly groups of all configurations, and adults in chosen families. I provide loving witness, high quality attention, and clear effective communication skills to all of my clients.

Because I am committed to human liberation and empowerment I can provide healing to members of "alternative communities" including people who identify as queer, trans/gender-variant, poly, pagan, kinky, sex positive, or otherwise intentionally non-mainstream. I am a great counselor of people of all genders and sexual orientations who want nonjudgmental listening about sexually explicit or alternative sexuality issues. I am an ideal counselor for people who work in the sex industry. I am trained to work within sacred sexuality contexts.

Sacred Sexuality Shamanic Healing Sessions
I offer these individual or small group sessions to facilitate healing for people who have a history of specific traumatic or unsettling sexual experiences that they are now ready to resolve. Sacred space will be created, clear emotional presencing and spiritual witnessing will occur.

Expanding Sacred Vocabulary with Deities, Ancestors, & Archetypes
Wednesday February 21st
Dr. Daniel Foor, Ph.D

Class is free and donations are warmly welcome, appreciated.
Sekhet Maat Lodge
7950 SE Foster Portland, OR 97206 

Join us for an evening teaching and discussion on the importance of developing a rich vocabulary for the sacred. We’ll discuss ways this type of knowledge can make us more wise and kind rather than becoming annoying religious zealots, and how all this relates to the topic of personal destiny and calling. We’ll also explore the role our own ancestors can play in this cultural repair.

Sex, Gender & the Ancestors
Wednesday February 22nd
Dr. Daniel Foor, Ph.D
Song of Stardust House  
5234 SE 54th Portland OR 97206

Suggested donation $10-20, no one turned away. No need to confirm in advance.
Our ancestors are often undervalued allies in healing personal and cultural wounds of misogyny, patriarchy, homophobia, restrictive gender roles, and repressive shaming attitudes toward sex. And yet harmful ways of relating with sexuality and gender are often intergenerational inheritances from our cultures of origin and from our ancestors and families in particular.

In this evening teaching and discussion we’ll explore how our ancestors of lineage and of culture can help us access greater perspective, healing kindness, and life force energy for transforming all the internalized family and cultural funk around sex and gender. We’ll have time for dialogue and of course the approach to the material will be sex positive, gender inclusive, and welcoming to diverse perspectives and experiences.
Additional information and Personal Sessions with Daniel

The Zendo Project for Psychedelic Harm Reduction
Saturday April 29th 2017

Song of Stardust House
 5234 SE 54
th Portland, OR 97206
$50-$100  1pm-5pm


This year, millions of people will use psychedelics outside of supervised medical contexts, many of them for the first time. Difficult psychedelic experiences can be frightening, but also potentially among the most valuable experiences someone can have. What can you do to help someone having a difficult psychedelic experience? What techniques are available for helping transform a potentially traumatic situation into a positive or even therapeutic one? What role has the Zendo Project played at festivals, and what take-home messages are available for others interested in psychedelic harm reduction?  

About The Zendo Project

The Zendo Project provides a supportive environment and specialized care designed to transform difficult psychedelic experiences into valuable learning opportunities, and even potentially offer healing and growth. In turn, our work reduces the number of drug-related hospitalizations and arrests. Learn more at

Megan Pedone's Holiday Massage Specials

 I am Megan Pedone, a massage therapist with over ten years experience in  Swedish and deep-tissue massage. Since 2013, I have worked extensively  with clients suffering chronic and terminal illnesses, particularly ALS. Recently,  I have been trained in aromatherapy and use doTerra oils in my practice. To  also enhance what I do, I've taken CHPC (Cascadia Holistic Peer Counseling)  to better be present with my clients and if they are so inclined to need it, give  them positive feedback in our conversations; I've also had training in anchoring  and grounding a space to make it the most relaxing possible. I became a massage therapist because I wanted to have a career where I could give to others instead of take away, where I can heal and help. I am gentle, yet firm, can find places on you that need attention that you didn't even know about and give suggestions on ways for you to optimize your range-of-motion and more deeply relax.  It's time to take care of you! Give me a call today! 360-771-7192
