When I Was a Mermaid: A Sacred Water Ritual & Sensual Wonderland Playshop
~For Women & Queer-Identified People~
Oct 5, 2014
What do mermaids have to teach us in their siren call, their rife sensuality, their seductive nature & their connection to one another?
Come find out and recharge your batteries with a day of sensual water ritual, cuddling, dancing, clothing swapping, massage, and other surprises.
We attach the word ‘sacred’ to any practice, experience, or way-of-being that slows us down and deepens our experience of being alive. Our sensuality is a manifestation and expression-of our vital sexual life-force energy. It can play, move, and be shared and enjoyed in many ways.
Work/Life balance out of whack? How often have you missed your middle school days of sleep-overs, pillow fights, heart-to-heart talks? Here is your chance to reconnect with that inner child.
As women and queer people, we need time to be nurtured by one another, without the life pressures of caretaking others or the sexual demands and gatekeeping that can sap our erotic energy. This is a day for you to bring out your unabashed sexy, sensual self and be honored for the wholeness of who you are.
Join us for sacred exploration of this sexual life-force in a fun environment! This Ritual Playshop includes powerful boundary-setting practices, and exercises with others to help us bond, practice surrender, and play like children. Water is the element of the sexual chakra and transmutes ideas, visions and serenity. In that spirit, we will flow.
We will begin the day in a warm, pool, where we will take off our clothes and take off our "problems" to the level we are comfortable, taking turns being held, supported, and floated in the water, as we are encouraged to let go even further in a guided “insights bath”. After the sacred water ritual, we will feed one another, pamper each other with multi-handed massage, cuddle and make our asks clear as we practice being open to the receiving and giving what is right for each one of us. In this pressure-free environment, feast and flow in what feels right for you with supporters who can hold you where ever you are.
Bring finger foods, your favorite massage oil, even your own sheets and towel, and prepare to be pampered like you never have before with time for heart to heart connection and witnessing and some surprises we have up our sleeves—you will have to come to find out!
