Talking to Kids About Sexual Ethics with Natasha Singh
Jan 21 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Talking to Kids About Sexual Ethics with Natasha Singh

Want to learn how to open the lines of communication to talking to your kids about sexual ethics and consent?

In a time where the national conversation is dominated by stories about sexual harassment and sexual assault, it’s critical for parents and educators to be preemptive and proactive with their kids, which means starting–and continuing–conversations about sexual ethics with both children and teens.

Join Sexual Literacy and Consent Educator, Natasha Singh (www.sexlited.com), for an evening packed with information and strategies about how to talk to kids about sex and sexual ethics and why it’s important to start sooner than later.

In this 2 hour workshop, you will learn:
– The most common myths that prevent parents from talking to their kids about sex
– Why teaching sexual ethics matters even if you think your child isn’t ready
– What to do if your child is intentionally or unintentionally exposed to porn
– Strategies for talking to kids about resilience, consent, sexting, gender, and media consumption
– Strategies for moving past your own discomfort when talking about sex
– That you’re more capable of having these conversations than you think!

Natasha will share invaluable frameworks, tools, and language that parents can use at home.

This workshop is perfect for any parents of young children and adolescents, as well as new and upcoming parents wishing to gain more knowledge in the areas of taking to kids about sex.

* Bring the sacred and deep presence into your relationship and lovemaking

* Practices for calling in the divine to flow through you and your partner

* Move beyond genital-centered climaxes into full-body bliss!!

* Beyond all the learning and tools, you’ll also get to drop into radical
BEING with your partner.

We will guide you into breath-work, connection exercises and ceremony to drop in deeply with your partner and ignite all your passion!

And you will have the invitation to experience:
* Letting go of expectations and limiting beliefs around desires

* Inhabiting the spontaneous present moment through connection

* Opening up to more intimacy

* Channeling your body’s energy and sharing it with a partner

* How to create an epic Valentine’s ritual together!

What is Tantra?
Tantra approaches lovemaking as an intentional practice where we harness our energy for spiritual growth. Learn how intimate connection can be a path to experiencing the true nature of self and universe. Tantric lovemaking has no goal beyond realization and its only aim is the practice of radical presence. In fact, the practice involves removing all pre-conceptions and expectations. Instead, we follow the spontaneous unfolding of the present moment into divine bliss. Moving beyond the stories and beliefs about what lovemaking means, we become truly alive and deeply connected through this powerful spiritual practice.

Is this workshop for me?
Appropriate for all levels of experience. While we will be talking about lovemaking and guiding some simple exercises to connect with your partner, this fully-clothed event offers a safe space where you can explore at exactly the level the feels right for you both. We support our whole community – low income application form: https://goo.gl/15aWoA

Desire…eros…longing…those tantalizing cravings that well up from deep inside you. Erotic desire comes in many forms. Perhaps you feel your desire most when it’s expressed in its primal, raw, animal form? Maybe you crave for your desire to be deliciously lavished upon your lover like warm honey? Or does your desire shine tenderly from your heart space?

In this sensual playshop you’ll discover the different flavors of desire and erotic energy through the framework of the chakras.

Enhance your experience of each erotic expression through delicious, organic, herbal aphrodisiac treats!

This is truly a journey of delight for the senses!

Learn which erotic energy might be your default, which might be edgy or challenging for you to express, and how to meet others in the full range and expression of your authentic eroticism and desire. You’ll learn tools to enhance your capacity to feel and express these energies in a broader range, allowing you to become a more dynamic and conscious lover.

You’ll be immersed into the direct experience of these erotic expressions through a safe and supported environment. You’ll be invited to practice sharing these energies with our group through movement, breathwork and partnered exercises.

Here’s What We’ll Cover
* Deepen your understanding of the different flavors of desire and the erotic

* Delight in discovering new flavors and just how good the erotic can taste through our herbal aphrodisiacs treats!

* Understand what a chakra is in traditional and modern practice

* Learn which chakra is your dominant for erotic expression

* Explore different expressions of eros that may be more edgy or challenging for you

* Enhance your capacity to feel and express all these energies and broaden your range between them, becoming a more dynamic and conscious lover!

* Plus learn how you can work with herbal aphrodisiacs in your everyday to enhance your sensual and erotic experiences of yourself and with others

Part discovery and experiential learning, part playshop and connection games, part erotic discovery, and part divine tasting journey – this event makes for an amazing date night, an juicy space to connect with others, and a divine space to discover your true erotic flavors!

Come explore and delight through the sense with us!

Is this for me?
No prior experience necessary – just an open mind and an excitement to explore with us! We create a strong container where you are safe, resourced, and secure so you can express yourself. We’ll give you the opportunity to go deep into your experience while following what feels just right for you.

Radiant Heart Ceremony - A Valentine's Day Ritual

Radiant Heart Ceremony
A Valentine’s Day Ritual

$45 Tickets: https://tinyurl.com/y8dsbvlh

Love’s energy flows through your body, toward a body, and into eternity again.
Surrender to this current of devotion and become one with the Body of Love.
~Radiance Sutras

Description
Looking for a conscious, embodied community to celebrate your Eros on Valentine’s Day?

Join us for a sacred ceremony of worship where we gather to open our hearts and celebrate the divine dance of sensation and awareness through our bodies. At the Radiant Heart Ceremony, we will be creating a safe space to call in the sacred, intimately connect, and expand our capacity for sensuality and presence. It’s a celebration of love the pulses through us all with a series of heart-opening partnered experiences. You’ll be guided into your senses through sacred poetry – connecting with your own body through movement and breath and to others through eye-gazing and consensual touch.

This Ceremony is based on the poetry of the Radiance Sutras, a modern interpretation of the Vijñāna Bhairava Tantra, an ancient Tantric text. Through a series of meditations, Bhairava offers his consort, Devi, practices that lead into “joyous union with the life of the universe.”

After the Ceremony, we’ll be transitioning into a Snuggle Party. We’ll co-create an intentional connection space where you can enjoy cuddles and practice consent conversations. By sharing playful snuggles and heart-opening cuddles we will co-create a yummy space where you can feel safe, respected, connected, and loved.

Is this for me?
This event is perfect for anyone who thinks that sharing nourishing touch with presence and consent is an awesome way to celebrate V-Day. We welcome you to participate at exactly the level that feels right for you. We support our full community – apply here for a low income ticket: https://goo.gl/15aWoA
