This Month's Practice: Waking Up the Senses

Pleasure is well within our reach. With a sensate focus, we practice attuning to the pleasure receptors in each of our earthly senses. Mindfully staying in our present moment experience, we explore the spectrum of sensation with a series of somatic exercises and guided meditations punctuated by songs. Please bring a simple snack, like a piece of fruit or chocolate, and one small object that brings you pleasure.

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 a few minutes for arriving before setting group agreements and intentions, followed by an embodiment invitation, leading into an hour of our special activity, and concluding with 20-30 minutes of savoring, sharing and mingling.

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.
