Women’s Leadership Lab
Oct 18 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Women's Leadership Lab

Behind every successful woman, there is a tribe of successful women who have her back.

For the past 20 years, I have been living and breathing this truism.

My mother taught me, as her mother taught her, that women need women. So, I am creating a small, intimate group for women who are wanting support in taking on the leadership roles in their life. I’m calling it the Women’s Leadership Lab. Whatever you have going on in your life, bring it to the lab and we’ll work it out together.

I use an inclusive definition of “woman” where trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people who are female-identified are welcome in the Lab.

Leadership looks like different things to different women, just as no two women are alike. What we all do need, I have found, is support, compassion, empathy, accurate information and useful strategies available to us consistently.

The group will meet twice a month for three months. Once the group begins, no new people will be added. Each meeting will be 2 hours and here is the format:

The first hour, I will facilitate a group discussion based on material I have found to be super useful to me as a leader in many different communities and capacities. The materials may be an article, a podcast, a book. Everything I bring to the Lab will be intersectional, anti-racist and anti-misogynist. There will be exercises for sharing and learning about the other women in the group.

The second hour, I will work with individual women in front of the group on a current leadership challenge or opportunity they are experiencing in their lives. We will use the group’s intelligence to workshop it together along with my leadership exprience being in support of the process. I am planning on doing two of these each night, so that each participant will have a chance to get this type of focussed attention. We will support each woman though experiences of misogny, internalized sexism, agism, racism, homophobia, sexual harrassment, classism and social conditioning that expects women to always put other people’s needs, opinions and desires before her own.

Want more details, keep reading…

In between meetings, there will be optional homework and readings, as well as a private facebook group moderated by me for mutual support. You will also choose an accountability/check in person to form a dynamic duo. My goal is to not replicate any of the other trainings I’ve seen that are geared toward women where it’s grossly sexist, overtly tied to capitalist exploitation and unconscious of both privilege and racism.

I want to keep the groups small, max 12 women. We will practice both receiving and being the kind of support we want to see in the world.

***Here’s where you get to choose which track you’ll be in***

Track A will meet every other Wednesday starting October 11

Track B will meet every other Wednesday starting on October 18

Each group will meet 6 times, going though December.

The cost for participating in the Women’s Leadership Lab is sliding scale donation between $250 and $450.

Again, seats will be limited. Register here:

The Tantric Path to Intimacy
Oct 19 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm
The Tantric Path to Intimacy

The key to having nourishing relationships is less about sexual technique and more about the quality of presence and depth of intimacy you create together. Tantra offers a wide range of powerful, experiential tools that are remarkably effective in helping you build a strong foundation and reach new heights of passion.

Join sexual empowerment coach and educator Dr. Alison Ash ofTurnON.Love and learn how to:

* Create grounded connection and loving presence through tantric meditation and pranayama breathwork

* Take control over creating chemistry with others by using the chakras as a framework for exploring different types of erotic energy

* Deepen intimacy by delving into new ways to experience pleasure and form sexual connections

* Craft powerful rituals that are uniquely designed for you and your lover/partner(s) so you can break out of routine and create fresh and fulfilling ways of relating

* Understand the ways tantric philosophy relate to the topics of self-love, consensual non-monogamy, and spiritual relationships

Discover how these profound ideas and potent skills can help you create more presence, sustain sweet connection, and continually deepen intimacy in your relationships.

Check out www.turnon.love for more details.

*Doors open at 15 minutes before, please arrive early so we can begin on time.

**Tickets are not refundable. They may be transferred to another individual, but not a future event.

***I offer one volunteer ticket. If you are interested, please email me at [email protected] and make sure to indicate the name and date of the event.

****I welcome folks of all genders, sexual orientations, relationship structures, ages, body types, abilities, races and ethnicities.

Soul Song Paralytic: a musical/visual exploration of grief, death, and other favorites
Oct 21 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Soul Song Paralytic: a musical/visual exploration of grief, death, and other favorites

See FB website group here:   https://www.facebook.com/saintsolitude/

See trailer here:  https://youtu.be/wD9N_xCNDqY

Inspired by the loss of very close friends, Soul Song Paralytic is an audio-visual collaboration exploring grief that brings together the musician Dup Crosson (Saint Solitude) and the visual artist Dara Lorenzo for a unique evening of art and catharsis.

Drawing from and sublimating our personal losses into a complete musical album and visual exhibit, we hope to create a shared public space where mourning and all its facets can be on display with pride. We intend for these pieces to stand in stark contrast to a culture that shuns discussions about death, often fails to provide adequate tools for healing, and rewards individuals who rush through mourning or neglect it altogether. In the process, we hope to connect with those in mourning and encourage similar creative means of expressing the brutal emotional experiences found in loss.

Alongside the debut of Dara’s exhibit, Saint Solitude will be performing as a band for the first time in 5 years (!!) and will play the titular album in its entirety.

We’re presenting this project with the support of several amazing groups doing bereavement-related work in the Bay Area, including Circle of Care, The Dinner Party, and You’re Going to Die.

At long last, we are really excited to share this labor of love with you – please spread the word!

Doors at 8pm
Music at 9pm
FREE (donations very welcome)
ALL AGES

Tender Stories: Sharing About the Complexities of Intimacy
Oct 22 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Tender Stories: Sharing About the Complexities of Intimacy

Stories are powerful.
Sharing creates change.
Listening is healing.

Do you have a story where you were confused, totally floored, or had a realization after the fact about an intimate situation that went really well or was a total fail?

We are creating a space to tell stories about experiences around consent in real life situations.

We want to hear your stories…
Sad. Funny. Horrifying. Real.
All of it.
