Consent is EcoSexy! Embodying Consent at Surrender and Beyond

Consent is EcoSexy! Embodying Consent at Surrender and Beyond
with Tai Fenix Kulystin, Sar Surmick, Carey French

Embodying consent empowers us to be present with our bodies, know our true boundaries, communicate authentically, and navigate disappointment with grace. We will practice noticing our internal sensations of ‘yes’ and ‘no’ and apply that knowledge to the practice of consent. Together we will explore the personal experience of consent and learn how to do it better. Some of the topics we will be exploring include: How do our bodies communicate our boundaries to us? How does power interact with consent? How can we celebrate our desires and experiences more through embodying consent?

TRANSformational: Sacred Queer Gender Magic

Tai KulystinTRANSformational: Sacred Queer Gender Magic
with Tai Fenix Kulystin

This gathering is dedicated to all those of trans experience, which could include identities such as: transgender, transsexual, genderqueer, non-binary, agender, multigender, gender fluid, and so many more it is impossible to have an exhaustive list. In the effort of holding a safer sacred space we request that you only attend if you are of these identities. I will be using trans as a catch-all term for the multitude of genders within the description below.

Our bodies exist at the intersection of earth and sky. All bodies are sacred; all beings are sacred; all genders are sacred. As trans people, we experience that sacred gender in a way that is unique and often not celebrated in the world. Although there are sacred representations of transness throughout mythology, human history, and spirituality, we have not been celebrated or often even recognized within the (declining) Western paradigm.

Trans genders are sacred and there is a sacred place in the world for us. As a culture, we are on the precipice of transformation and we as trans people have a role to play. As we shift into a new paradigm, new mythology, and new consciousness, we are assisting the shift by being in this world and working to bust open restrictive notions of gender, no matter where on or off the binary we fit.

Our time together will be spent connecting and communing with ourselves, each other, and nature. We will co-create together the experience that we want to have, which could include discussion, movement, cuddling, or something else entirely.

Note: Tai Fenix Kulystin is a queer fat fem trans genderqueer person of European descent.

Self Pleasuring Sex Magic with Sarabell Eisenfeld

Self Pleasuring Sex Magic Ritual 

with Sarabell Eisenfeld

Embody your own flesh and skin & bones. Bring your focus in to the center of your own touch, your breath, your pleasure, your magic.

In a circle we gather, as one and many; we generate and declare personal intentions…
We then begin our personal journeys, using breath, movement, sound and awareness as our personal pleasure power tools.
In the presence of community, feel your permission to focus on yourself, your body’s own sensation, inspiration, and delight… generating for ourselves the arousal and embodiment we desire in the moment.

And with our passion and our will, we guide that arousal to charge our declared intentions. Magic.
We use “soft eyes” to keep our focus self-centered. We each explicitly tend our own erotic home.
And we do it in a circle, together.

Location: Aphrodite Pandemos Temple
Please note: This will be a closed container. Arrive early or on time. Limited by space to 22 people.
Bring: Material to make your personal nest (i.e. towels, cloth, etc.), altar item, journal/sketchpad and pen.

Optional: hand-held mirror, sex toys

Sarabell is a Certified Sexological Bodyworker, a Living Love Revolution Aphrodite Temple Priestess, a lifelong Jew*Witch, and a self-pleasuring enthusiast.

Eco-Erotic Polarity with Gaia Surya

FB_IMG_1483344228218Eco-Erotic Polarity
with Gaia Surya

In this playshop, we will claim ourselves as dance floors for the erotic meeting of gods and goddesses. Through movement play, sacred theater, and authentic relating, we will tune into the connected sensuality of the feminine and the joyful reverence of the masculine. This is a dynamic polarity that weaves through all beings, and we will play with both sides of it without letting it define us.

When the river and the riverbank dance in a nourishing, empowered, and loving way…what does it feel like in our bodies? As a group, we will deepen our participation in this erotic partnership, in service of supporting and enjoying ourselves, each other, and all of life more. We will practice grounding our vulnerability, feeling our power as channels of sensuality, and actively receiving the nourishment of our relationships.

This work is intended to widen our access to kinky reverence, compassionate communion, attuned discernment, and sensual flow.

Taste of Erotic Alchemy with Tai Fenix Kulystin

Tai KulystinTaste of Erotic Alchemy
with Tai Fenix Kulystin

Erotic Alchemy utilizes the processes of transformation found in nature to understand and encourage the unification of matter (the body), consciousness (spirit), and shadow (soul) within an explicit and intentional erotic context. Alchemy is based upon nature and the natural processes of transformation that are found within it. More than that, though, it is an intentional practice designed to understand and encourage the unification of matter and consciousness. In this evening playshop we will be focusing on the particular alchemical formula of the three conjunctios, or the (re)union of the three principles: sulfur, salt, and mercury, or soul, body, and spirit.

Each movement, each breath, and each connection is alchemy. A chance to experience a reunion of the separated, a reunion of Self. Our time together will be spent nurturing our own sense of self first before connecting with others and tips for integrating our new experiences with the rest of our lives. What in you has been ignored? What in you has been disconnected? What in you yearns to be recognized? How can we support you and your growth in community?

Ecstatic Awakening Yoga

kriyannaMahkahLEcstatic Awakening Yoga
with Kriyanna Feyalove & Mahkah Das

This an alignment based Hatha Yoga asana class that encourages radical self expression. You will be allowed to express the sensations and feelings in your body thorough movement and sound including shaking, animal noises and much more! This promotes ultimate healing and spiritual awakening in a playful and powerful way.

In this 2 hour Ecstatic Awakening Yoga (EAY) experience we will begin with sharing the basic tools for Ecstatic Awakening Meditation: The 3 Golden Keys and The Golden Tool Belt. The group will have an opportunity to practice these techniques before the asana practice begins. The intention is to bring back some aspects of yoga which have been lost in the West through an overemphasis on physical practice. Yoga is meant to assist in a deep spiritual awakening of kundalini energy (being in the vortex). This is exactly what EAY assists us with. During the physical practice, we will be holding traditional Hatha yoga poses for a minute or more. By holding yoga poses for a length of time, we will build up tapas (internal heat) which aids in healing and expansion of our mental, physical, and emotional body. After each pose you will be given time and space to express the sensations of the energy you are feeling moving through your body. You will be greatly encouraged to express what you are feeling through shaking, making sounds, animal noises, dancing, crying, screaming, laughing, tapping, sweeping, or any other form of expression that feels good to you. This is an ultimate way of healing your entire energy body to make room for all that you desire in your life. It is playful, empowering, and deeply healing.

Return to the Forest

Return to the Forest
with Greg Hill

Enter the forest to unite with community to embark on a journey of healing and pleasure. Together, we bring light to our relationship with our sexuality and our lover Earth. This journey introduces us to an experiential movement practice and examination focused on heightening our awareness of impact of our unconscious on creating pain and isolation in our lives. Through healing, we feel safely held, balanced, and connected to our source of creative energy: our sexuality. We begin this path of healing by connecting to the positive feminine and masculine qualities that exist within each of us. We will stimulate our awareness of others by getting in touch with the positive feminine energy of connecting. We re-awaken the positive masculine energies of supporting and containing within each of us to lovingly hold ourselves and others. We will learn to examine our Interactions with our lover Earth and experience open, respectful, and joyful connection with our human lovers. We emerge feeling more alive, connected, and filled with pleasure for life and union with others.

Wild Writing with Silky

image2(1)Wilding Writing
with Silky

Create a new relationship with writing. Writing born from sensuousness. Writing that comes through you, a part of all that is around you. Writing that is the bridge between you and all things. This workshop will allow you to dance with your inner wild writer and is ideal for anyone at any place in their writing journey. Come and offer your experience and learn from others. We will start with a discussion about the power of writing, stories of when nature has written “through” you, and will share some inspirational texts to spark your creativity. We will also invoke a spell that invites you to connect your sexuality, erotic energy, sensuousness, creativity, and wildness. Following group discussion, you will be alone in the forest to surrender to your wild writer. Windward is a unique place to bridge the silence between your wildness and sacred land. To close the workshop, we will create a supportive container for sharing. Listeners will be encouraged to share the physical sensations experienced while the writer shared their work.
