AWESOME BOUNDARIES: for Empowerment, Safety, and Really Good Sex!
This fun, informative and interactive class is required for participants to be able to attend touch events.
Okay, let's admit it, at one time or another we've all said yes when we wanted to say no, no when we wanted to say yes, and maybe when we really didn't mean it. Also, at one time or another we've pushed someone's boundaries, invaded their personal space, went in for the hug without waiting, or accepted a lukewarm yes when we knew they didn't mean it. Right?!?
It’s time for a change: the sexual revolution 4.0 is here! And we are armed with the tools we need, to do it right this time.
In this session you will learn and practice the following:
- How to make an inventory of your yeses, your nos, and your maybes (things you kind of want to do, but only with the right person under the right circumstances
- Where your line in the sand it, and where you want to test your own boundaries (maybe you don't know how you feel about something until it happens.) Learn how to explore safely using safe words, changing your yes to a no, and giving and getting feedback. How to say no, gently and with care yet with authority and finality. Also, tone of voice and screaming when your no is not being respected.
- How to deal with someone who doesn't respect your boundaries (dealing with it as it happens, reporting it, and finding support after the fact)
- How to get proper consent to protect against claims of violation later (examples: get it in writing, voice recording, witnesses). Although false accusations are extremely rare, misunderstandings and faulty memories are not. Physical maneuvers to evade the unwanted hug, a stray hand in a snuggle, or the person who has you cornered.
- What to do it you freeze (fight, flight, or freeze response) and how to recognize that someone you are interacting with has frozen (usually caused by past trauma.)
This is a practical hands-on class where we will discuss actual and theoretical situations, and give useful information for how to deal with them. We are very specifically not going to be trying to place blame, as we strongly believe that this is a larger cultural and systemic problem, and like all problems, it can best be handled compassionately, elegantly, and with a view to problem solving and best practices.
We believe that people of every gender are longing for more love, connection, touch, and pleasure in their lives. We know that sex-negativity has systematically robbed people of safe and healthy ways to get these needs met, and we know that there is much work to be done to reclaim sexuality as something natural, healthy, and beautiful. Helping people feel safe and empowered is key, and good boundaries are vital.
The Sexy Truth
An opportunity to witness, divulge, and share from heart centered awareness, while creating a safe, sexy, sensual, sharing, revealing, and deep listening opportunity.
9 Minute Dates
For this playshop, each participant has the opportunity to connect for nine minutes with six different people (assuming 90 to 105 min). On each nine-minute date, the first two minutes are used to find agreement about what the participants would like to do on their date. They then have five minutes to dive in and explore what they have agreed to, followed by two minutes to wrap up and share about the experience.
Participants can just show up and see who might be available or watch for one or more rounds. All are encouraged to find dates with campers of all genders. And dates can be with more than one person. These dates can run a wide gamut from quite wild and sensual to tame and sedate, as long as they are fully consensual. The final minutes of the playshop are for the sharing highlights of the experience with the whole group.
Keynote: Discover the Keys to Energy Orgasms
with Leah Alchin Piper
Some people seem to have all the luck when it comes to understanding, feeling, and seeing energy…. But what about the rest of us? Are we doomed to only imagine it, never being certain that the “energy” we put out is, in fact, moving? In this event we will unpack the brilliant concept of the chakra system and why it is the #1Tantra Tool that takes you from being a dabbler in Tantra to a Tantras Master.
Leah will teach you how to “Track your Tantra Touch”; when you need to put more energy out, or pull your energy in, how to direct your energy, and the most potent chakra to send energy from. This is the "Love Map" of how to arouse and heal your lover(s) that will serve you (and them) a lifetime, super sizing your confidence, and raising lovemaking to an art form.
The EASTERN Approach - Discover the powerful esoteric practices (mantra and yantra) of the chakras and how they’ll get you ahead on your spiritual path and how to use them in healing sessions to wake up the consciousness of the "receiver.”
The WESTERN Approach - Discover the continuously fascinating pyschology of the chakras and how to use them in Tantra practices.
The Chakra Map - One of the best kept “sex secrets” of the masters is understanding erogenous potential of each chakra. Additionally, we will discuss which chakras are the most effective for energy transmission and which chakras can be manipulated/stimulated from the inside!!
Learn the foolproof method of transforming your touch from feeling clinical to super sensual. Easy to use strategies that will get you out of your head and into the body.
Plus an Advanced Tantra Technique - Learn Nyasa - The ritual charging of the chakras through hand, body, and mudras
We live in a world full of preferences...and consequently limit the fullness of our life experiences and potential for connectivity and bliss by consciously and unconsciously allowing our preferences as well as our internal unrecognized prejudices to guide our interactions with other humans everyday.
We will be utilizing blindfolds and a series of safe, non-invasive touch and movement exercises to illuminate these blockages and create a container of unconditional touch, where people of all colors, sizes, genders, levels of "attractiveness" and other differences/distinctions that divide us can learn to touch and SEE each other with unconditional love and true acceptance.
The Forum is a group process developed at the German community ZEGG to provide a stage for whatever is happening inside the person: one's true motivations, deep feelings, ideas and emotions. The Forum helps facilitate transparency, sharing and clarifying unsolved situations of daily life, and it can be a catalyst for one's own personal growth.
Earth Archetypes for the Masculine
Invoke and step into the deeply rooted, deeply present Earth archetypes for the Masculine. Drawing on mythic representations, astrology, patterns of the natural world, and our own inner knowing, we will develop our relationship with this source of inner strength and stillness. Learn to draw on Earth as an effective balance to the fears, fire, and excitability of our own natures and as a foundation for entering into the wildness of sacred relationship.
Within ourselves, we experience a range of tensions and excitements that can bring us off track. Some are as wonderful as falling in love, others as terrible as grieving a sudden death. Practice dropping into the arms of the inner Father, who can hold us through the tempest, bringing comfort and peace without any need to deny or suppress our thoughts or feelings.
Where this becomes really powerful is as a platform for deeper sexual connection! By making love from a steady, grounded center, we can weave our way through the excitement of sensation, remaining conscious and intentional with our desire. Serve awakening, serve passion, and serve the divine connection with your partner by embodying these archetypes.
Through a presentation, group journeys, and individual exercises, this session will support the inner masculine in people of all genders, as well as help us to understand and invite this quality of the masculine in our relationships and our work as healers. We will also take time to ceremonially invoke this archetype for the global Masculine, who needs help and support right now in remembering who he is, and awakening to who he can become.
Tantric Shamanic Breathwork
Tantric Shamanic Breathwork will encompass 2 sessions and we ask that you commit to attending both. In one session, you will be breathing and your co-journeyer will hold space for you, and in the other, you will become the co-journeyer.
· Access natural altered states of consciousness for ecstatic expansion
· Journey into multi-dimensional realms for advanced knowledge & healing
· Access powerful inner guidance and spiritual-sexual awakening
· Clear what no longer serves you from your body and energy field
Tantric Shamanic Breathwork uses the healing power of circular breathing and chakra-attuned music in sacred ceremonial space to facilitate an altered state of consciousness for deep healing and transformation. It’s a powerfully ecstatic process that inspires you to remember and reconnect with your own inner shaman. As old patterns are released and transformed, you have an opportunity to regain lost soul parts and remember the magic of who you truly are. Empowerment brings wholeness to your life, to the lives of those you love, to and the world at large.
This process is highly experiential and the wisdom and healing gained comes from YOUR inner experience. Tantric Shamanic Breathwork honors and blends the timeless wisdom of ancient traditions with the emerging new-paradigm methods of tantric alchemy. It functions as the rainbow bridge between these two worlds honoring the best of both worlds while creating wholeness for your body, mind, heart, and spirit.
You will be guided through the process and offered the opportunity embrace a whole new level of your tantric shamanic self. After the breathwork process, you will be given access to art supplies to create a mandala of your experience.

Sacred Sexual Awakening & Healing® - The AH Practice
- Reignite your innate sensuality
- Heal personal, lineage, & cultural trauma
- Reclaim your juicy vitality and passionate aliveness
- Activate your next level of power and presence
- Gain a potent tool to support others
- Deepen your connection to inner guidance
Join Amrita Grace to learn and practice the unique and potent body of work globally celebrated as AH-Sacred Sexual Awakening & Healing®. Developed by the world-renowned Tantra Yoga Teacher Caroline Muir, AH is an incredible healing modality for clearing trauma, shame, and blocks to orgasm and sexual enjoyment. It involves a distinct giver and receiver (and often includes a witness); conscious, loving touch and connection; eye contact; breath, sound, and movement; and a powerful energetic container in which healing and magic happens.
What’s unique about AH practice is the fact that everyone stays fully clothed during a session. This does not in any way detract from its potency and power. Much like other forms of energy healing, it addresses the energy centers of the body with the giver either laying their hands on the receiver’s body or holding them just above it. What makes it different from other forms of energy work is that the lower chakras are directly addressed so that the approach is one of wholeness and inclusion of the entire body and energy field.
As you learn and practice AH in partners, you will be guided step by step with love, compassion, graceful mastery, and the highest of integrity.
CREATING KICK-ASS INTIMACY
How to make Authentic and Beneficial Connections Competently and Conscientiously

TAOIST SEXUAL PRACTICES

Tim will be sharing concrete practices to enliven and reinvigorate your personal sexual energy and expand your pleasure potential with a partner, and stoke your Creative Sexual Fire.

Heart to Heart Puja
Enjoy a playful and deeply fulfilling experience of sharing connection and joyous ritual with familiar and new partners.

Nurturing and often energizing, these exchanges allow you to receive the blessings of deep presence and of having a sacred container in which to practice intimate erotic and romantic arts within a sacred container.
We'll share undulatory breath practices and soul gazing, sacred touch of your choice, possibly erotic dance or movement, chakra merging breaths, and other erotic practices. The exercises can be sensual, intimate and deeply moving though not sexual, and are designed to see the divine in each other. The shared pleasures heal and people get a lot of intimacy needs met through these Pujas.
