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 savouring, mingling and imbibing something seasonal and delicious.

May 27: Parasympathetic Pathways 
Our nervous systems are a complex symphony of sensors, in conversation with internal and external stimuli. In this practice, we will gain a greater understanding of how our body, mind and spirit react to stressors and how we can proactively respond to create new pathways of behavior. In a series of multisensory exercises, we will practice awareness without judgement and choosing pleasure, for healing.


No late entry will be allowed due to the intimate nature of this workshop. Doors will be locked at 10 minutes after the start time.
Water available. Please bring your own cup or bottle.
Open to all 18+
Attendance is limited to 30 people.
