Collapse People of Color Centered SAR at Woodhull Sexual Freedom Summit

THIS IS A TWO DAY COURSE: AUGUST 1 & 2, 2018. The course is being held at the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Summit in Alexandria, Virginia.

A Sexual Attitude Reassessment (SAR) is an intensive workshop experience to support participants in their growth and expansion regarding human sexual behavior, experiences, and activities. The People of Color centered SAR, created by Bianca I Laureano, MA, CSE foundress of WOCSHN, The LatiNegrxs Project, and ANTE UP! Professional Development, is interdisciplinary, complementary to a variety of learning styles, and centered on reflexive activities and discussions. SARs are useful for examining personal values and beliefs for the work we are doing in our communities and to become more comfortable discussing sexuality topics and experiences. This People of Color centered SAR (POCc SAR) is unlike any other because in this SAR it is recognized how racism, elitism, xenophobia, and other forms of oppression and power-over others impact our sexual lives and experiences. We recognize racism as the oppression, fetish, stimulant, violence, and curiosity that impacts us all and do not hide or erase that reality!

Embed in the POCc SAR is an intersectional praxis to focus on our most impacted populations of -isms, communities often excluded in SARs in North America. This POCc SAR will focus on the US with some aspects of international discussions. Attending and completing a SAR is a requirement for AASECT certification and 18 CEUs are offered. 

The POCc SAR is lead by Bianca I Laureano, MA, CSE and Aida Manduley, MSW

The POCc SAR is open to all who are interested in participating and enjoying a different SAR experience that does not erase or receive people and communities of color as afterthoughts, but as the guiding community to which this SAR is focused upon.

Outcome: This POCc SAR will offer participants an opportunity to examine a variety of topics which include but are not limited to: personal values and beliefs, body image, fantasy,  gender, STIs and HIV, aging bodies, impact of racism and elitism, myths and stereotypes of masculinity and femininity, kink, non-monogamy, sexual ritualistic practices, bodies of size, disability, and culture.

Objective

By the end of the POCc SAR participants will be able to:

  • Explain personal beliefs and values related to a variety of sexual experiences and behaviors

  • Evaluate cultural rituals and phenomena from a cultural relativist perspective

  • Expand personal and social understanding of systems of oppression and how they impact sexual experiences and behaviors

  • Analyze levels of comfort in discussing sexuality related topics

  • Integrate referrals when their personal limits are reached

  • Evaluate principles of pleasure, bliss, and body autonomy

  • Describe the ways bodies require touch and intimacy across the life span

  • Employ an understanding of consensual non-consent and power exchange

  • Demonstrate understanding of gender, gender identity, and gender expression

  • Review personal philosophy of inclusion

  • Use media literacy skills for various types of media (film, advertisements, music)

  • Write an assessment about their own sexual growth

  • Recall the various forms of language regarding sexual orientation and identities

  • Explain various types of relationships beyond heteronormative monogamy

  • List the ways misogyny and oppression impact sexual pleasure for all bodies

  • Create a practice in personal and professional settings that utilizes a strategic use of privilege

    Collapse SAR: Sexual Attitude Reassessment (Live, Northampton, MA)

    THIS IS A THREE DAY COURSE. August 31, Sept 1 & 2, 2018.  Friday, August 31:  9:00 AM - 5:30 PM,  Saturday, September 1: 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM, Sunday September 2: 9:00 AM - 5:30 PM

    Negative feelings about sex can interfere tremendously with relationships and personal happiness. This course has been developed and is based on a method first developed in the 1970’s. The idea of SAR is to introduce participants to a broad range of human sexual behavior through discussion and media to create greater comfort and ease when dealing with sexual issues.

    ISEE consistently receives feedback from participants that our SAR process is superior to others that they have attended, due to our interactivity, our integration of the body and mind, our philosophy, and our flow. Find out why the holistic approach makes such a big difference.

    SAR is a great tool for clinicians, educators, clergy and medical personnel, but it is also a wonderful experience for individuals or partners. It is a personalized event that takes participants through a journey of understanding the erotophobia in our society, the unnecessary angst that we have over sex, and next steps to comfort and wellness with our whole bodies. SAR is highly recommended as a precursor to any other ISEE course, as it prepares participants for a deeper level of discussion for subsequent classes.

    "What is Tantra, and can it help me?"

    Marathons, Multi-orgasmic Men, Ancient Eastern Sex Secrets, Sting and Trudie... at some point every sex educator will be asked the question "What is Tantra?" Tantra is a sacred tradition that is alive and well in the West, and sits at the heart of Hinduism and other Eastern religions. As the ideas and practices of Tantra have migrated Westward, it has been filtered through the attitudes, preoccupations, and spiritual biases of the Western mind, spawning divergent streams of thought that have gained a good deal of cultural traction.

    In this interactive class you will be introduced to Tantric Hatha Yoga and meditation, gain awareness of the therapeutic potential of the sacred sexuality movement, understand the development of neo-Tantra, and come away with an overview of the basic philosophies and practices of Hindu Tantra.

    What is intimacy? How does it affect our lives? Is it inviting or terrifying? In this full day class, we will have open discussions and embodied exercises to clarify what it means to have intimacy with ourselves and others. We will distinguish the differences between sexual expression and intimacy. We will explore the history that we hold in our minds and bodies about who we are and the obstacles of identity that block intimacy in our lives. By facilitating experiences that involve non sexual interaction, we will still get to a deeper understanding of what challenges us and what excites us about feeling connected to ourselves and others.

    We will practice presencing skills, and respecting people within their boundaries. This class will be an experience into being seen for the fullness of who we are and how intimacy is essential in moving forward through the complexities of sexual relationship.

    THIS IS A HALF DAY COURSE, 8:30 AM - 12:00 PM

    The debate about orientation and choice is not new, and it is still very active in the world today. What is also true is that behavior and orientation do not always fit into neat boxes. The principles of Tantra can be used to explore the phenomenon of orientation in new terms, creating a more holistic view of sexual orientation. Participants will obtain a new paradigm for discerning issues related to orientation, whether for themselves, for students, or for clients.
