Team Bernie: How to Win The Holidays Potluck - Hosted by the Democratic Socialists of America

From the jovial socialists who brought you “How to Win Thanksgiving,” here’s the December edition: How to Win the Holidays!

Don’t settle for being the sulky socialist in the corner this holiday season. Be the sulky socialist in the corner who gets their relatives to fight for political revolution—or at least watch a Bernie interview after dinner.

Join us for a cozy potluck of convivial persuasion!

We’ll eat wintry treats and practice

* Talking Green New Deal with Grandma
* Getting Uncle Bruce to vote Bernie
* And canvassing your family and social circle

Please bring some favorite holiday foods to share and label whatever you bring with its contents (Vegan? Meaty? Has almonds?) so people can know what they’re getting into.

Invite all your union friends and the socialism curious!

The venue is fully accessible and has no stairs, with a street-level entrance on Telegraph.

Wake Up Singing! Open Session with Briget Boyle *EVERY Monday through Friday at 7:30am*

I am trying on something new. I have long felt that I need to start my day off with “sounding” in the morning, and I would like to share this with the community // During these early morning open sessions, I will have a drone playing in the room so that we can wake up singing // It will be a free time to improvise, harmonize, meditate, move, or whatever you need to do to wake up in this way // This time would not be “led” by me // I will be there to tune into my voice and my artist self and invite you to do the same // No charge! – Briget Boyle

Intimacy Games – The Yoga of Connection & Sexual Polarity
Dec 16 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Intimacy Games - The Yoga of Connection & Sexual Polarity

Do you want to transmit more love and authentic emotional expression through your body while in deep connection with a partner?

Do you want to play with masculine/feminine energies in your romantic relationships to create more electricity through sexual polarity?

Come uncover your true desires for relationship and find how to access your sexual essence to create more love in any moment.

When we play with the sexual essences of masculine (consciousness) and feminine (energy), we can learn to create love and beauty in any moment. As we learn to fully embody one pole, we can draw out the other pole in our lover and create moments full of depth and spark. As we deepen in this practice of sexual polarity we learn to bring our desires, fears, complaints, hurts, and longings to the world with an artfulness that opens ourselves as well as those we love.

**This Month’s Theme: Sensuality and Seduction**
******************************************************************
This month we will explore opening to sensuality in the body and how to embody seduction through your feminine or masculine essence. As a feminine being, can you feel your breath as though it was your most sacred lover even as you reveal your tender, aching, or seething heart to your partner? As a masculine being, can you feel so deeply into HER, allowing the most impeccable consciousness to flow through your body so that with just your eyes you pin her very soul in love? Come explore these flavors with me and uncover what we can create when we let go and allow ourselves to be bodies seeing bodies, love seeing love.
******************************************************************

Whether you are in a relationship, single, poly, hetero or LGBTQ+ this workshop will lead you through embodiment and breath practices that open your heart, drop you into desire and consciousness, and express your heart’s deepest yearnings through the tool of your body.

Using practices drawn from authentic relating, sacred masculine/feminine embodiment, inner child work, and therapeutic techniques, this mini-workshop is sure to leave you feeling more open-hearted and in touch with your deepest feelings about what you wish to create in your relationship life and more bodily capacity to create that.

Doors open at 7:15pm.

Hard start at 7:30pm.

Doors will lock at 7:31pm to create a secure and safe container so we can go deep.

PLEASE ARRIVE BETWEEN 7:15-7:30PM

Embodied Erotic: Radiant Heart Puja – Neo-Tantric Ritual of Connection & Intimacy
Dec 18 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Embodied Erotic: Radiant Heart Puja - Neo-Tantric Ritual of Connection & Intimacy

Join our community celebration of worship through presence and touch. The Radiant Heart Puja is a safe and sacred space to share in connection, tap into our own divine sexual energy, and to deeply open into the Heart. This ceremony takes us through a series of Neo-Tantric meditations, breathwork, authentic movement, and guided heart-opening partnered experiences. You will open the senses, feel into the sensuality of the body, create radical presence and boldly and authentically share your Heart. Join us to cultivate deep intimacy with yourself and others and to celebrate the love that is open and available to all.

Come and enter the bowl of vastness that is the Heart, and listen to the song that is always resonating…

~The Radiance Sutra, Sutra 26

The Radiant Heart Ceremony is based on the poetry of The Radiance Sutras, by Lorin Roche. The Radiance Sutras is a modern interpretation of the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, a core ancient Tantric text, filled with practices that lead into “the joyous union with the life of the universe”.

Our Approach

In this workshop, we’ll focus most on your embodied experience. That means less talk and more DOING. We’ll call you into your body and presence. Our approach is highly somatic, because we believe that when you learn by feeling directly in your body, you gain a deep understanding that leads to lasting transformation. The foundation of our container is a sense of safety and respect within the group, and an openness to feel into whatever is true for you in the moment. This creates space for your authentic expression and a blossoming of your full radiant being.

Is this for me?

If you believe that conscious, authentic connection is the greatest aphrodisiac, if you love growing together in your relationship, and if you’re excited to try something new, then this is the right place for you!

This ceremony is open to singles, couples, etc! This is a fully clothed event and you are welcome to participate at the level that feels right for you. No prior experience with Tantra needed! We support our whole community, low-income application: https://goo.gl/15aWoA

Facilitated by:

Caity Flanagan – Co-Founder of Embodied Erotic. Caity bridges the worlds of love and alchemy together through her practices as a modern day medicine woman. Her combination of somatic and shamanic practices allows her to move seamlessly between the physical and mystic worlds in service of body, mind, heart and spirit. She deeply believes that everyone can live a fully embodied and purpose-driven life. Caity has studied The Radiance Sutras and with Lorin Roche for the past 6 years, this text and Tantric meditation are at the core of all of her work as a healer and educator.

Matt Sturm – Founder of Embodied Erotic, yoga teacher, somatic therapist, and relationship coach. I am following a calling to share the gift of sacred relating with the world. My work integrates meditation, yoga, and ritual into the path of spiritual growth. I teach hands-on methods for inhabiting our bodies, connecting with the breath, cultivating deep intimacy, and tuning in to the universal love within us all.

Instant Band Night XIV: Starting 2020 Off Right
Jan 9 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Instant Band Night XIV: Starting 2020 Off Right
Instant Band Night is a party where musicians who’ve just met form bands on the spot. Come play or come watch!

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

*~~{{2020}}~~*

A new year! A new beginning! There’s no better way to kick it off than taking the stage with a band you just formed and rocking a song you just wrote, dammit!!!

(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.

* 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.

HOWEVER! No show is complete without an audience: if you don’t play an instrument or sing, COME ANYWAY and just watch; you’ve never seen anything like it.

Let’s start the year off right! Creativity!! Courage!! Music!!

$10/person / BYOB

Intentional Activism – What if we could – wait for it – have fun AND create the world we want to live in at the same time?
Jan 18 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm
Intentional Activism - What if we could - wait for it - have fun AND create the world we want to live in at the same time?

Do you feel passionate about social justice, but don’t know where to get started?

Are you a seasoned activist experiencing burnout?

What if activism didn’t have to feel like you’re preparing for battle? What if we could – wait for it – have fun AND create the world we want to live in at the same time?

In activist circles it can often feel like a competition of who is the most “woke,” which prevents folks from getting involved in fear getting publicly shamed or rejected for not knowing enough right off the bat. For those who have been around the block, the competitive environment can be emotionally taxing, leading to burnout.

As activists our intention is to create positive change, but it’s important to acknowledge that intent does not always equal impact.

While it can be sexy to march in the streets and protest, protesting is only one small facet of activist work. Sustainable momentum towards social justice starts with planting seeds of change, which requires creating space for folks to learn and grow. This includes both, allies looking to get more involved, and folks whose beliefs are motivated by fear.

Come join the intentional activist community in a 4 hour workshop where you will:

  • Get started in activism in a safe space

  • Learn what subconscious beliefs are stagnating your activist efforts

  • Move past that sneaky little ego to create meaningful impact

  • Reduce burnout by practicing boundaries

You don’t have to be perfect or know all of the answers to start creating ripples in the pond. There is no “right” way to be an activist. We’re all learning as we go along. Why not learn together? Why not start now? If not now, when?

Accessibility:

Entrance and all gender bathrooms located on the 1st floor – no stairs or steps. Please arrive scent free to create an inclusive space for folks with chemical sensitivities. Learn more about why and how here.

RSVP online today for sliding scale

Pay more at the door.

Facilitator: 

Quinn Williams (he / him) is a queer, polyamorous, genderless liberation coach. He’s passionate about the collective liberation of the human race. As a compassion activist he awakens consciousness through living with boundless, unconditional love and radical authenticity. As a certified ACCC ontological coach, he works 1:1 with folks to liberate themselves from internalized systems of oppression so they experience the world with uninhibited joy and wonder. He also hosts LGBTQIA inclusivity trainings and workshops that move folks past the ego and social conditioning so they can heal.

SF*EB BiCon is a conference and party dedicated to celebrating and connecting the underserved bi+ community. We use “bi+” to refer to the variety of labels people use to describe themselves which don’t fit into the mainstream straight/gay binary; Such as, pansexual, fluid, non-monosexual, demisexual, asexual, aromantic. We all come together and connect in a space defined by the beauty and challenges of being attracted to more than – or fewer than – one gender.

BiCon features two days of community presentations, panels, discussions and performances on topics related to identity, gender, race, mental health, sexuality, relationships, history, disability and more! It’s space to build community and celebrate our similarities and differences while throwing a great party.

Lunch, swag, fun and community connections included.

We’re especially interested in obtaining more speaker presentations and attendees who are marginalized community members, such as: PoC, Trans and NB people. Scholarship tickets will be available soon. Submit talks here: https://www.sfbicon.com/present

If you are able to help, please buy one Fundraising Ticket at $200 so we can cover our costs.

Wake Up Singing! Open Session with Briget Boyle *EVERY Monday through Friday at 7:30am*

I am trying on something new. I have long felt that I need to start my day off with “sounding” in the morning, and I would like to share this with the community // During these early morning open sessions, I will have a drone playing in the room so that we can wake up singing // It will be a free time to improvise, harmonize, meditate, move, or whatever you need to do to wake up in this way // This time would not be “led” by me // I will be there to tune into my voice and my artist self and invite you to do the same // No charge! – Briget Boyle
