From Roots to Shoots: The Sex-Positive foundations of EcoSexuality in Cascadia

Allena SmileFrom Roots to Shoots: The Sex-Positive foundations of EcoSexuality in Cascadia
with Allena Gabosch & Teri Ciacchi

Sex Positivity, Kink, Polyamory, BDSM, LGBTQIA2S, Goddess spirituality, witchcraft, and now, EcoSexuality. It is pretty weird out here on the West coast of America. How do “Identity politics” and the history of these movements and underground subcultures create social evolution? Allena and Teri will talk about their personal experiences as members of these subcultures and social matrixes of some of the underground movements that nurtured and set the foundations for EcoSexuality, allowing it to become an identity and embodied culture in Cascadia. We will place special emphasis on the importance of intergenerational work, how to both interweave skills and share power vertically from the 50-60 year old roots of the tree to the budding shoots in their 20’s and 30’s. Allena Gabosch was the founding Teridirector of the Center for Sex Positive Culture from 1999 until 2016. Teri Ciacchi was mentored by Allena from from 2000-2012 and given a venue and coaching for her own teachings. Teri Ciacchi has mentored Lindsay Hagamen and a majority of the organizing team members of Surrender. The existence of the Center for Sex Positive Culture and the support of this generous pay it forward leadership style have made Surrender The EcoSex Convergence possible.
