Unleash Your Voice for Beginners with Briget Boyle [Telegraph Room]

Are you just starting out with singing? Have you been told (either by someone in your life or that little voice in your head) that you can’t sing? Do you think you are tone-deaf? Have you resigned yourself to just keeping your mouth shut? If any of these questions ring true to you, Unleash Your Voice for Beginners is designed for you!

Briget’s teaching philosophy is centered on the power that is found through discovering your voice, feeling safe, and having fun while doing it. Briget will cover the basics of vocal production; and will help you develop confidence in your voice. By the end of the course, you will be able to sing on your own and in harmony. Students will have the opportunity to audition for the brand new Unleash Your Voice choir after this series. Through unleashing our voices together, we build confidence and freedom of expression while connecting with other human beings.

Bay Area Selfistry Experience
Oct 22 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Bay Area Selfistry Experience

It’s time.

As a scattered and busy woman, chronically overextended in work, family and service, how often do you dismiss the need for self care oriented towards feeding and growing you to the depths of who you are — which is different than getting a massage or a pedicure?

If you’re like most of the women I talk to, you neglect your self all the time.

But at what cost?

Recently, Shana reached out to me and shared this same longing — to find a way to meet this call in the context of the times we live in. So, together we began to dream into manifesting a local sisterhood suited to the reality of our schedules and the depth of our need.

We imagine…

A sacred space to check in with one’s self and be held and gently guided in a container that has depth and wisdom without dogma or rules.

A consistent experience that can easily fit into our schedules so we can settle into a long view of our personal development while building a purposeful community.

A no pressure sisterhood experience where we can each relax into a rhythm of self & other that isn’t forced.

A meeting with self that is spiritual in nature, in that it provides the conditions for tapping into our deepest core, but also provides the freedom to source that connection our unique way.

A powerful encounter that will leave us centered in our inner knowing with reliability and strength.

A way to engage with the global situation without needing to know exactly how or when we will show up — supported in the truth that our wise personal care and development is integral to being of service in the world in good and impactful ways.

Feeling like this might be your dream, too?

Watch this video to hear me and Shana talk about how important it is for women who already lead and serve to continue to grow, and how hard it is for us to find places to do this:

Core Erotic Theme: Discover Your Personal Erotic Makeup
Nov 2 @ 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm
Core Erotic Theme: Discover Your Personal Erotic Makeup

Ever wonder why some sexual encounters or fantasies are so much hotter or more satisfying than others?

According to Jack Morin, Ph.D., author of “The Erotic Mind”, we all have a Core Erotic Theme (CET) that is unique to our life experiences and preferences. When we can tap into the feelings and emotions that underlie our CET during sexual encounters, we have more fulfilling sex.

This workshop will outline the building blocks of Core Erotic Theme and lay the foundation for you to discover your own.

You will:
–Experience an easy somatic exercise that you can do at home to connect you more easily with your own erotic energy.
–Learn the basic building blocks of Core Erotic Theme and how to start connecting them with your personal experiences.
–Participate in a sexy guided meditation to inspire you in your process.
–Gain a framework to aid your continued exploration outside of class.

This class is for adults of any gender, sexuality, or relationship structure. Sliding scale: $20-$40.

The East Bay Community Space is wheelchair accessible and the Telegraph Room has an all gender ADA accessible bathroom stall.

Tickets Available Here: https://tinyurl.com/y6bg3sne

Refunds, minus the Eventbrite fee, are available until 24 hours before the workshop time.

Please email [email protected] with any questions regarding this workshop.

Intro to Sexual Ecstasy: Tantra Workshop for Singles & Couples
Nov 2 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Intro to Sexual Ecstasy: Tantra Workshop for Singles & Couples

What are our bodies truly capable of? What are our beings truly capable of? What is the secret to breathtaking pleasure and intimacy?

The human body is vast and deep, capable of unprecedented, exquisite, even transformative pleasure. Yet so few of us get to scratch more than the surface of this unlimited potential.

Until now.

In this clothes-on workshop with two experienced and knowledgeable experts, you will discover all the secrets you were never taught in school. Topics may include:

  • The G-Spot. Science keeps changing it’s mind: it’s real, it’s not real, it’s real, it’s not real. You’ll learn the truth about the G-spot, and many other spots, including the powerful Sacred Spot, and the difference between each one.
  • Female Erotic Anatomy: The latest revelations, such as the much talked-about clitoris, and how it’s not what we once thought it was.
  • The Magical Power of Arousal: How it affects energy and desire, and how it actually changes–yes, changes!–your physical anatomy, which is what causes so much confusion.
  • Ejaculatory Control for Men: Practices to delay ejaculation, prolong pleasure, and enhance potency so you can be more vital.
  • Women, do you get close to orgasm but can’t quite seem to get there? You’ll learn the main reason why this happens and what to do to get over the edge.
  • You’ll also learn some secrets on how to lengthen and intensify your orgasm.
  • Energetic Aspects of Lovemaking – What are the laws of energy and attraction? How can I learn to feel what is going on in my partner’s body, and experience a feeling of oneness?
  • Lovemaking for Health – How you can cultivate your sexual energy to heal or stay healthy and vital.
  • What is Full Body Orgasm? And how you can reach this ecstatic state.
  • For Men (and Women): The key to becoming multi-orgasmic!
  • The Science of Pleasure: What are neural pathways and why do I need to know about them?
  • Secrets of Sensual Touch – Did you know you can touch someone with your energy before you make contact physically? We’ll discuss both energy and physical modalities of touch.

And, you can ask our sexperts all your burning questions. They have a tremendous well of training and experience, which you can read about below!

It’s 2019. Not the stone age. It’s time for deeply satisfying, soul-connecting sex. Come gain the knowledge and tools you need to take your sex life (including solo sex!) to the next level.

Instant Band Night
Nov 14 @ 8:00 pm – 11:30 pm
Instant Band Night

* * Play in a band or just watch & enjoy * *

Instant Band Night is a party where musicians who’ve just met form bands on the spot. Come play or come watch: either way, it’ll be the best night of your week.

(1)
The first rule of Instant Band Night is: * YOU * DON’T * HAVE * TO * PLAY * AN * INSTRUMENT * TO * ATTEND *

(2)
The second rule of Instant Band Night is: We guarantee you (the audience) an astonishingly excellent time.

(3)
The third rule of Instant Band Night is: Bring a friend or three!

In case you’ve never been to Instant Band Night, here’s the deal:

1. The stage has a drum kit, guitar, bass, keyboard, and mics.
2. We draw names out of hats to make instant bands that get 7 minutes in the green room to plan a 5-minute set.*
3. A hat-drawn artist will also take the stage alongside each band to draw their gig poster on a meeting room easel pad.

HOWEVER! No show is complete without an audience: if you don’t play an instrument or sing, COME ANYWAY and just watch — don’t forget the second rule of Instant Band Night!!

* If you’ve brought a friend (or friends) you want to play with and you’ve already worked something out, just put your whole group into the DUETS/GROUPS hat and we’ll slot you into the order.

Bring your people, crack a beverage: it’s time.

$5/person
BYOB

Some of us have made an unofficial tradition out of bringing desserts to Instant Band Night, too, and we’re not stopping now.

We’re never stopping.

(Bring a few donuts this time!)

* * * w e ‘ l l * s e e * y o u * t h e r e * * *

Updated F.A.Q.

Q: Do I need to be a musician to show up?
A: No. Absolutely not. Hell no. Come see the show and have a good time; you don’t have to get onstage.

Q: I’m a musician; am I guaranteed a slot in a band?
A: We literally draw names written on slips of paper out of coffee cans, so there’s a chance you may not be called; in a purely mathematical sense, it’s a function of how many musicians of each type show up that night (there are five musician cans (DRUMS, GUITAR, BASS, VOX, MISC) and one can for artists who’ll be picked to draw the bands’ gig posters, plus the DUETS/GROUPS can for people who showed up with at least one friend and already have something in mind). We say: surrender to the spirit of random chance, or maybe slip the MC a bribe of some sort.

Q: Do I have to be an amazing musician to throw my name in a can?
A: Probably not. Your band’s only gonna be onstage for 5 minutes, anyway; how bad can you possibly be?

Q: I play an instrument other than what’ll be onstage, like the sax or trumpet. Can I bring it?
A: Hhhheeeeeelll yyyeeeessssss you can bring it. PLEASE DO. We had a guy bring a bassoon once, and he rocked the living shit out of it — and, by extension, us. Woodwinds and brass, which tend not to need extra amplification for a space of this size beyond being pointed vaguely at a mic, are most welcome. If your instrument requires an amp, that’s cool, but you should get in touch with Jon about showing up early for setup.

Q: Do I have to pick my cover tunes beforehand?
A: Listen. You and your band (who you’ve JUST MET) have 5 minutes onstage to do whatever the hell you can think of in the 7 minutes prior to walking up there. You wanna try to pick covers everyone can agree on? Great. You wanna try writing something new? Fantastic; it can definitely be done. You wanna pick a key and tell each other to just fuckin’ wing it up there? You are a RAGING PSYCHOPATH and we love it. We’ll see you in 7; get in the green room!!!!

Q: I showed up with a friend (or two or three or four) and we already have something in mind. Can we play together?
A: We made a whole other coffee can just for you: it’s the one labeled DUETS/GROUPS! Put all your names (plus your band name) on one of the big paper entry slips and throw it right in there!

Q: What does BYOB stand for?
A: We don’t sell drinks at Instant Band Night, so you gotta bring your own. Get a cheap sixpack of something. Maybe a bottle and some cups. We’re not here to godmod how you get down.

Q: Is this in the East Bay?
A: It is. Do not be alarmed: it’s within walking distance of MacArthur BART, and as a bonus, you get to tour the delightful, scenic Temescal district on your way over. Or you could just take a Lyft from SF (or the BART station if you fancy). Got a car? Drive on over; parking around the East Bay Community Space is pretty simple. You can do this. We believe in you.

Q: I can’t make it, and I feel a little bad about it. Am I good?
A: The only cure is to think of a few friends of yours who live in the Bay and enjoy fun, then invite them to this.

Q: You got any other rules?
A: For some reason, almost every Instant Band Night sees a group do a rendition of “Creep” by Radiohead, so this song is now outlawed until at least Instant Band Night 16.

Intro to Sexual Ecstasy: Tantra Workshop for Singles & Couples
Dec 2 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Intro to Sexual Ecstasy: Tantra Workshop for Singles & Couples

What are our bodies truly capable of? What are our beings truly capable of? What is the secret to breathtaking pleasure and intimacy?

The human body is vast and deep, capable of unprecedented, exquisite, even transformative pleasure. Yet so few of us get to scratch more than the surface of this unlimited potential.

Until now.

In this clothes-on workshop with two experienced and knowledgeable experts, you will discover all the secrets you were never taught in school. Topics may include:

  • The G-Spot. Science keeps changing it’s mind: it’s real, it’s not real, it’s real, it’s not real. You’ll learn the truth about the G-spot, and many other spots, including the powerful Sacred Spot, and the difference between each one.
  • Female Erotic Anatomy: The latest revelations, such as the much talked-about clitoris, and how it’s not what we once thought it was.
  • The Magical Power of Arousal: How it affects energy and desire, and how it actually changes–yes, changes!–your physical anatomy, which is what causes so much confusion.
  • Ejaculatory Control for Men: Practices to delay ejaculation, prolong pleasure, and enhance potency so you can be more vital.
  • Women, do you get close to orgasm but can’t quite seem to get there? You’ll learn the main reason why this happens and what to do to get over the edge.
  • You’ll also learn some secrets on how to lengthen and intensify your orgasm.
  • Energetic Aspects of Lovemaking – What are the laws of energy and attraction? How can I learn to feel what is going on in my partner’s body, and experience a feeling of oneness?
  • Lovemaking for Health – How you can cultivate your sexual energy to heal or stay healthy and vital.
  • What is Full Body Orgasm? And how you can reach this ecstatic state.
  • For Men (and Women): The key to becoming multi-orgasmic!
  • The Science of Pleasure: What are neural pathways and why do I need to know about them?
  • Secrets of Sensual Touch – Did you know you can touch someone with your energy before you make contact physically? We’ll discuss both energy and physical modalities of touch.

And, you can ask our sexperts all your burning questions. They have a tremendous well of training and experience, which you can read about below!

It’s 2019. Not the stone age. It’s time for deeply satisfying, soul-connecting sex. Come gain the knowledge and tools you need to take your sex life (including solo sex!) to the next level.
