Katie Loncke (they/them) is a lover of warm mischief, unlikely alliances, and exploring the paradoxes and possibilities of spiritual-political combinations.
Having served for nearly a decade as a Co-Director of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship, Katie’s movement education merges many streams — from cybermedia to old-school Luddite bibliophiles, shop-floor organizers, politicized healers, and oral historians. Their learning and training owe a great and still-accruing debt to multiple, sometimes overlapping communities — including the revolutionary theory and action of sick and disabled, queer and trans feminists of color; Black nationalism and post-nationalism; indigenous protectors of land, life, and culture; as well as working-class socialists, ecosocialists and anarchists inside and outside the U.S.
In recent years, Katie’s social justice journey has included helping to win a million dollar lawsuit against a police department; fighting wage theft, jail expansion, and gentrification; assisting climbers in physically blockading a Shell Oil ship to increase the costs of Arctic drilling; pushing to drop racist charges against the Black Friday 14; sending care packages in feminist solidarity; supporting indigenous-led decolonization efforts from Standing Rock to Sogorea Te’; and continuously asking how to lead a life of joyful freedom that can lovingly overturn the status quo.
Katie currently works as a somatic sex and relationship coach, helping people of all genders to love well, shed shame, and connect authentically in intimacy. Trained by the Somatica Institute, they use principles of attachment theory, sexological bodywork, and experiential learning to guide people through real-time practice in empowered, pleasure-oriented relating — finding inner freedom even with all the trauma that life throws at us. With a focus on mindfulness, vulnerability, and empathy, this work is designed to aid in the discovery of more joy and aliveness.
