Mapping the Landscape of Consent: 2-Day Wheel of Consent Class
Dec
1
to Dec 2

Mapping the Landscape of Consent: 2-Day Wheel of Consent Class

We are at a time of collective unraveling of ancestral, cultural and personal trauma in our bodies. 

At the heart of this unraveling lies a tremendous amount of confusion around the nature of consent— what it actually is — and how we consciously or unconsciously traverse in or out of the boundaries of it with our own bodies and in our relationships with others.

This class is grounded in the foundational work of Betty Martin’s Wheel of Consent. Using the Wheel as a framework, we will map the landscape of consent through Giving and Receiving touch with the intention of mindful awareness, honoring, trust and communication.

Give and Take - Consent for Your Kinky Play with Katie Spataro

Give and Take - Consent for Your Kinky Play with Katie Spataro

Within the context of BDSM, consent offers us the ability to explore and play in the realms of the shadow. But how does our individual understanding of what consent is, how it is played out or how it may shift or change within the context of a scene, enable or limit our access to exploring those realms within a safe-enough container?

 Intro to Erotic Alchemy: Sacred Sexuality Series

Intro to Erotic Alchemy: Sacred Sexuality Series

Erotic Alchemy utilizes the processes of transformation found in nature to understand and encourage the unification of matter (the body) and consciousness (soul/spirit) within an explicit and intentional erotic context. In this workshop we will be focusing on the particular alchemical formula of the three conjunctios, or the (re)union of the three principles: sulfur, salt, and mercury, or soul, body, and spirit. Drawing deeply on the work of practical, psychological, and spiritual alchemy, we will investigate these conjunctios and the transformation that can be found within.

We will explore:
• What is Erotic Alchemy and how can we engage with it
• Alchemy as a process of personal transformation
• The alchemical formula of the three conjunctios and how that relates to the erotic and relationships
• An embodied experience of soul, body, and spirit and the unions thereof

This is part of a regular series of drop-in sacred sexuality classes that will be exploring the realms of bringing the sacred into sexuality, relationships, and intimacy with Tai Fenix Kulystin. Each class will be a combination of theory, embodied praxis, and discussion with a slightly different focus heald one Thursday night each month through the summer.

These are all stand-alone classes that can be taken individually or as a series. There is no requirement to attend all classes in the series, though you are certainly welcome to do so.

Sacred Gender Magic: Sacred Sexuality Series

Our bodies exist at the intersection of earth and sky. All bodies are sacred; all beings are sacred; all genders are sacred. As a culture, we are on the precipice of transformation and all genders have a role to play. As we shift into a new paradigm, new mythology, and new consciousness, we are assisting the shift by being in this world and working to bust open restrictive notions of gender, no matter where on or off the binary we fit.

This is part of a regular series of drop-in sacred sexuality classes that will be exploring the realms of bringing the sacred into sexuality, relationships, and intimacy with Tai Fenix Kulystin.

Garland will be presenting a new three part talk series @

The Amor Spiritual Center
231 1st Ave S., Kent, Washington 98032

Talk 1: Aug. 17th @ 7-9pm

Topic: SHAME – In this talk we will tackle one of the major resistances to living a full and mindful life, the fear that we are not good enough. This talk will touch on erroneous shame beliefs, systems that support them, and how to begin to work with our own shame messages.

Talk 2: Aug. 24 @ 7-9pm

Topic: SOMATIC AWARENESS – This talk is all about your body and how you feel and sense within it. How aware are you of your body and how much permission do you allow yourself to feel and sense the world around you?

Talk 3: Aug. 31 @ 7-9pm

Topic: SEXO-SPIRITUALITY – This talk will tackle the dual worlds of Sex and Spirit, Sexuality and Spirituality. What definitions and beliefs have we constructed that have kept these two worlds mutually exclusive? And how can we begin to hone, heal, and nurture these two realities within us - and the world?

Embodying the Sacred Whore: Sacred Sexuality Series

From at least the beginning of written human history, as far back as we know, there have been sacred whores, also often called sexual priest/ess, temple prostitute, and other names. The sacred whore is an erotic priestex who embodies sexual sovereignty, knows all parts of the body to be sacred, and celebrates the erotic in all of its forms. The work of sacred whoredom begins with the body: recognizing all bodies as holy and working to embrace and inhabit all parts of the body.

The final weekend is an overnight sacred erotic ritual retreat designed to give you the opportunity to use those tools, or others in your toolbox, to assist your own erotic healing and transformation.
