    Collapse  Joy of Intimacy: Communication & Relationship Skills (Live, Northampton, MA)

    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.

    Collapse Introduction to Tantra (Live, Northampton, MA)

    "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.

    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.
