The real point of relationship is not what folks usually think it is. The ultimate purpose of an intimate relationship is not romance, or pleasure, or baby-making. The ultimate purpose of relationship is transformation - healing, evolution, and growth. Shedding shame, freeing ourselves from fear. Learning to really Love.

And this is the great work that intimate relationships are uniquely and powerfully qualified to help us accomplish.  Especially when super-charged with the multiple megawatt life force of sexuality, the energy of Eros.

So, yes, relationships can feel hard and difficult. That's no mistake. The mistake is thinking that they are supposed to make us happy, and that they should be easy. Sometimes they bring us pleasure; sometimes they bring us pain. But when we use them to learn to really love, then they bring us joy.

Welcome to Saturday and the R/evolutionary R/elating practice. Join us and learn more about HOW to use relationships and sexuality as a path of transformation, to practice the art of creating connection and not just any connection, but deep, soulful connection. To yourself, to others, to All That Is.
 

SUNDAY | TRANSFORMATIONAL EROS & SOULFUL SEX
10:00 - 18:00H [Arrive by 9:45H, door closes at 10:00H]

Sexuality, Eros, the Life Force has the power to SUPERCHARGE everything it touches. It can just deepen our stuckness, loneliness, or shame OR it can become a POWER-FULL FORCE for TRANSFORMATION.

Learn how to engage this soulful, sexy power, the magic of Eros, and use it as ROCKET FUEL for your journey of healing, and growth, and realization. Learn to harness not only the incredible Love & Light that Eros can evoke, but also its edgier, darker aspects. Use it for evolutionary Shadow Work.

Embrace the full spectrum of your sexuality - Your playfulness and power; beauty and tenderness; lustiness and aggression; sweet, gentle love and hot, sweaty desire. All are welcome. All are vital. All are Holy. Shed your shame. Open your mind, your heart, and your hips. Do the Dance of transformational intimacy. Luscious love and conscious kink.

Of course, you will be supported in taking care of yourself IMPECCABLY. Not doing ANYTHING that doesn't feel DELICIOUS to you, asking for EXACTLY what you want, co-creating comfort, kindness and support. You will not be expected to engage in any particular activity, and will be supported in having only that which NOURISHES YOUR SOUL. 

Join us for this Soulful, Sexy Journey of Discovery!
