The Pleasure Practice

An Embodied Exploration
An Invitation to Open to the Healing Power of Pleasure.
Cultivating a solo practice in a community container.
Choosing Pleasure as a radical act.

Play at your own pace.

Why Pleasure?
We honor Pleasure as resistance to apathy. Where trauma restricts, Pleasure opens. Attuning to the self healing power of pleasure as our birthright. A space to revitalize, listen to and attend to our own needs and desires; a place of self discovery. Pleasure as the source of sacred sweetness, we embrace the nectar of our own unfolding.

Why solo?
Our Pleasure is our own. Pleasure is an experience we cultivate from within.

Why together?
We practice in community to strengthen our sense of belonging, offer witness to each other and experience our interconnectedness in a brave, vulnerable and receptive space. We intend to create community that supports the unlearning of shame, dismantling of heteronorms and affirms queerness.

The Practice
Simple and profound. We gather together around the full moon. The practice will be held within a time structure that allows 15 minutes for arriving, 15 minutes for setting group agreements and intentions, one hour of our special activity, and concluding with 30 minutes of savouring, mingling and imbibing something seasonal and delicious.

We welcome all gender expressions

WAKING UP OUR HANDS
Pleasure is well within our reach. After the mouth and genitals the most nerve endings are in our hands. With a sensate focus, we practice turning on the direct route of pleasure.
