Pleasure Portal: Conscious Creation & Nurturing Our Inner Fire @ Eaton Wellness
Tap into your inner pleasure, sacred expression, and what ignites you.
About this event
When we live from a state of pleasure, we become magnets for all we desire. In the session we’ll uncover the power of our deepest desires (inner fire), how to navigate & nurture them, and how they can serve as fuel for bringing our dreams and visions to life, in conscious co-creation with the universe.
We will expand on previous sessions Session 1 (Winter) An Exploration Into Sacred Sensuality and Session 2 (Spring) Energetic Awareness & Embodiment, and call upon the energy of Summer and what it represents: sunshine, solar plexus activation, stimulation, play, release, completion. With a grounded understanding of our sensual/sexual energy, and awareness of our energetic being, we’ll now explore how to channel these energies through aligned action, transmutation, and conscious creation.
Disclaimer: In this space we examine “pleasure” from a holistic lens that includes the physical, energetic/spiritual, intellectual/structural/political, and psychological aspects of pleasure, which each have their own set of sensations and blockages/barriers. We welcome you to bring the perspectives and questions that are authentic to your understanding and experience of pleasure.
What we'll engage in:
- Plant Medicine Ceremony (Cacao from Christina infused with herbs from Tatiana) - Join us in an embodiment practice to awaken our power centers with the aid of the energies from the Earth with herbal infused cacao and sound bowl healing. Followed by a brief sensual practice of self-massage using Calendula Oil.
- Guided Discussion - Explore ideas as a group about power, worthiness of pleasure, sacred expression (i.e. sacred anger), and manifesting our desires.
- Embodied Dance - Guided movement followed by freeform dancing to embody the lessons learned from our inner selves and move stagnant energy preventing us from receiving and incorporating the highest levels of pleasure.
- Please bring a journal for if you feel called to take notes during the discussion and an item for the community altar.
