The Playground At The Edge Of Pleasure And Possibility

April 13, 2024

An embodied workshop centering the exploration of radical-self love and freedom dreaming. Our bodies are central to our freedom, pleasure, and possibility. The playground is an invitation to create the world we want to experience by claiming our embodied truths out loud. We do this through liberatory practices such as movement-based explorations, games, dance, talk-back practices, whole-body listening, consent, getting comfortable with uncertainty, and mindfulness practices. This is an opportunity to share our truths out loud in a safer space, a chance for our bodies and beliefs to be fully expressed, despite those that would silence us. This active claiming of one's voice is the key and core to our collective freedom and the manifesting power of our pleasure.
