What a terrific turn-out we are having for these workshops. Really feeling blessed to have such interest in our offerings. For the Expanding the Erotic Imagination workshop, I have closed registration. I really want to make sure the experience is intimate, and the participants really get a chance to share their creative expressions. For Tonya’s workshop (“Talk Dirty in Bed”) there’s still a chance to sign-up. Tonya’s workshop can accommodate more participants, as there is no writing portion. So for those who’d like a taster of what we’re up to – there are a few slots left in Tonya’s workshop. Get ‘em while they’re hot!
I had the opportunity to do a short version of my workshop this past week up at Breitenbush hot springs. Fascinating! I had some great feedback. So helpful. Sometimes it’s hard for me to remember that even folks who are open and evolved and sex-positive still have anxiety when they don’t know what the requirements are going to be. Seems like some folks thought there would be a lot of intimacy exercises, and were concerned about doing such things with their co-workers (understandable!). What I’m trying to figure out how to make clear is that these workshops, unlike a tantric puja or sensual, touch-positive party – don’t involve intimate interactions. They might involve games and creating scenes, but it’s more of an exercise in channeling creative impulses, not dispelling sexual energy. I’m still learning to navigate describing the intent.
I’m so looking forward to Saturday and learning and playing with a whole new group of people. I’ll try and come back to the blog and give an update afterwards. Believe me, I’m just as curious as to how it’s all going to turn out!
