This Month's Practice: Blind Contour Figure Drawing
Blind contour drawing is a practice of keeping your eyes on the object while your hand free flows on the page. An act of trust, allowing our hands to create on their own. Opening joyfully to the conversation that ensues. Feeling our way. There will be an invitation for participants to take turns modeling and drawing

Why Pleasure?
We honor Pleasure as resistance to apathy. Where trauma restricts, Pleasure opens. Attuning to the self healing power of pleasure as our birthright. A space to revitalize, listen to and attend to our own needs and desires; a place of self discovery. Pleasure as the source of sacred sweetness, we embrace the nectar of our own unfolding.

Why solo?
Our Pleasure is our own. Pleasure is an experience we cultivate from within.

Why together?
We practice in community to strengthen our sense of belonging, offer witness to each other and experience our interconnectedness in a brave, vulnerable and receptive space. We intend to create community that supports the unlearning of shame, dismantling of heteronorms and affirms queerness. We welcome all gender expressions.

The Practice:
Simple and profound. Each workshop offers a specific invitation to engage with pleasure and can be taken as a stand alone workshop while the series intends to build community. Each practice allows 15 minutes for arriving, 15 minutes for setting group agreements and intentions, an embodiment invitation and song leading into one hour of our special activity, and concluding with 30 minutes of savoring, mingling and imbibing something seasonal and delicious.
