Building Our Sexual Empowerment as People of Color

*this seminar is for people of color/BIPOC, mixed-race folks, who also self-identify as either cis-women, trans people, Two-Spirit, non-binary, and gender-diverse people.

As People of Color (POC), we understand the many ways we have to survive in colonial culture. Racism creates impacts on our sexual bodies and our sexual self-esteem.  What would it feel like to imagine coming home to our bodies? How could this be safe-enough? How can we further our sexual empowerment?

In this workshop, we will explore tools for building/enhancing our sexual empowerment, through centering our experiences as we share in collective wisdom and resiliency. Suggestions on various tools, including through the power of our own erotic self-pleasuring sessions, will be provided. We will be introduced to what erotic self-pleasuring sessions could look like in a safe-enough container. And the myriad ways it may allow us to build more understanding and healing of our individual bodies. We will explore impacts of racism on our sexual bodies and unpacking racialized sexual shame.

Somatic-based activities (mindfulness, meditation, visualization and grounding exercises) will be woven throughout the seminar. Take-away resources will be provided to continue our individual journeys.

Please arrive on time as doors will be locked at 7:35pm

*We require a minimum of 6 guests to proceed with this seminar. If we do not reach that attendance level your payment will be refunded & you will be notified of the seminars cancellation.
