Curious Fox Social: Raising Children in Alternative Relationships

https://www.picatic.com/curiousfoxjune17

This month we will be looking at different examples of raising children while in ethically non-monogamous relationships. There are many questions to consider - do you come out to them? Do you introduce partner(s) to them? How do you make time? What is the good, the bad, and the ugly of raising children while in an alternative relationships structure? We will ask this month's panel all of that and more!

Intrigued? Come join us at the Curious Fox Social! Relationship expert Effy Blue will lead an enlightening dialogue about relationship by design. We will explore the world of ethical non-monogamy by sharing stories of experienced non-monogamists, having an open Q&A, and fostering a welcoming social space for you to talk to other Curious Foxes.

Are you a Curious Fox? 

Curious: An engaged interest, a desire for discovery, a dedication to growth. 

Fox: In Japanese culture foxes (kitsune) are believed to possess high intelligence, long life, and magical powers as well as being faithful guardians, friends, lovers, and partners. 

Combined, Curious Foxes will approach new situations with an open mind, wisdom, and humility. They will explore together while challenging themselves to look within. Curious Foxes know how to ask questions with purpose while being able to listen fully and authentically to their answers. Curious Foxes stay curious.

Join us on June 7th at 7pm in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The panel will begin at 7:30 with more socializing from 9:30-10:30pm.

Tantric Puja: The Art of Adoration with Monique Darling

Feel free to bring roses, chocolate, sacred elements for our altar and/or anything else you wish to adore and worship Goddesses with! 

---~~~---~~~---~~~---~~~---~~~---~~~---~~~---~~~---~~~--- 

Tantra Puja is a sacred ancient ritual that has been practiced for thousands of years. It is a beautiful ceremony of honoring and adoring the Divine that dwells within each of us, and brings us into a profound space of connection and universal Love. 

This evening’s Puja is dedicated to both men and women. In fact, participants will not know whether they will be in the giving or receiving role until they arrive. Men may end up in the giving role or the receiving role, and the same for the women. Though the presentation starts off with an introduction to some of the esoteric practices of Tantra to give us a context for the Puja, we will soon switch gears and actually engage in this heartening practice. We will use movement, sound and the five elements, all given to us with ample instruction, enriching each experience throughout the ceremony. You may find yourself turning inwards and becoming aware of abundant love and innate beauty that is part of your being.

Love Exchange for this one of a kind evening:

$40 per person

LIMITED To 30 PEOPLE!

Naked! Women's & Trans Full Moon Yoga & Pilates

YOU MUST PURCHASE A TICKET HERE TO RESERVE A SPOT and get the event address:
https://nakedwomensmar.eventbrite.com

Naked in Motion is so excited to announce our next monthly Pay What You Can Naked! Women's & Trans Yoga class! Come celebrate your body, just the way it is!

This class is specifically open to all women and trans folk, anyone identifying as female, female-bodied, and trans. We want to create a potentially more comfortable space for those who know, have known, or will know what it's like to walk the earth as a woman. Please make note of this distinction. We really want to make a safe space for women and trans folk specifically, so anyone who doesn't identify in this way, please come to our all-gender class, the details of which you can find at nakedinmotion.com/events.

In the spirit of accessibility and inclusivity, all tickets are reserved on a “pay what you can” basis. There are costs associated with producing this event, so if you have the means, please contribute what you can. We appreciate any financial assistance in helping us bring this event to life so that we can continue to hold more events like it in the future. Suggested donation is $25. Only 20 tickets available, and space is very limited, so reserve your tickets while they last!

You must reserve a ticket on Eventbrite to get the event address. Unfortunately, Eventbrite requires at least a $1 donation (plus a small fee of $1.05) to register, so the tickets aren't completely free, but that's still pretty cheap. If you must pay in cash as a walk-in, please email info@nakedinmotion.com to register. If you need to pay as a cash walk-in, you MUST email info@nakedinmotion.com to get the address and reserve your spot.

Doors open at 6:45pm.
Orientation/event starts at 7pm.
Doors close at 7:25pm.
No latecomers! If you show up after 7:25pm, you will not be allowed inside, no exceptions. Tickets are not refundable.

Willow will teach a Vinyasa yoga class followed by a relaxing meditation (about 75-80 minutes total). We will mingle and munch on some treats (vegan-friendly) afterwards.
Mat rentals are NOT AVAILABLE at this studio, so you must bring your own mat, and we recommend bringing a towel as well.

Nudity is mandatory, but women and trans folk have the option to wear bottoms for any reason. Please note that having your menstrual cycle doesn’t necessitate wearing bottoms, as we don’t want menstruation to limit your attendance. For transgender participants: please make use of anything you require to affirm and support your gender, as we’ll defer to whatever “Naked!” means to you. Everyone should be an active, willing participant and at least 18 years old.

YOU MUST PURCHASE A TICKET HERE TO RESERVE A SPOT and get the event address:
https://nakedwomensmar.eventbrite.com

Check out our other events at nakedinmotion.com!

If you have any questions about the class, such as questions about the overall experience, gender ratio, or number of people who attend, please see our FAQ page on our website.

Facebook event listing: https://www.facebook.com/events/279479152472111/

La Domaine Esemar is unique among contemporary BDSM training facilities. To begin with, La Domaine is far more than a simple professional dungeon. Esemar is a private home where people can explore their complex sexuality for periods of time ranging from basic, short training sessions, to a lifetime’s commitment, shared with our remarkable lineage of Mistresses, Masters, and slaves.  It is the only standing relic of the old guard system of BDSM training chateaux which existed around the world before fetish play became mainstream (think Story of O). In it's 24 years of existence, La Domaine has counseled over 500 couples and thousands of individuals on the complex aspects of BDSM power exchange dynamics and sexual fetishes.

Human expression is the essence of interconnectedness. We are a web of wonder-beings, and our only hope is to share what's inside. In a culture of shaming, we are often too quick to silence one another, when in fact it's a chance to learn what's real and evolve. In Volume 4 of EAI, Michelle Joni will lead us in meditative role playing to make a positive shift, discuss our feelings about unwanted attention from strangers, and strengthen our energetic boundaries so our sacred souls are left unscathed. Explore Expansive Love, the practice of Amourissss! Optional: dress up like a cat. We will also practice a few ::magic::massage techniques and rise up in song, letting our special touch be felt and our voices be heard!

Curious Fox: Metamours

This month our theme is metamours. What's a metamour? Poly talk for a partner's partner. Some of us have one or two metamours, while others have an expansive polycule network. Navigating these connections can be a foreign experience when we are breaking away from traditional relationships. How to connect with metamours is an important question all relationship explorers have faced. Are you friends with your metamours? Why or why not? What are some fun metamour stories? What kinds of troubleshooting have you done? What are your lessons learned about your preferred relationship structure? We will ask this month's panel all of that and more! Join us and bring along a date or two and your metamour(s)!

Intrigued? Come join us at the Curious Fox Social! Relationship expert Effy Blue will lead an enlightening dialogue about relationship by design. We will explore the world of ethical non-monogamy by sharing stories of experienced non-monogamists, having an open Q&A, and fostering a welcoming social space for you to talk to other Curious Foxes.

Tantra Taster with Ria

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/tantra-taster-tickets-30966058314

TANTRA TASTER is an introductory workshop for all people to experience a transmission of more freedom and love. The etymological meaning of Tantra is "an instrument (-tra) for expansion (Tan-)." We are bombarded with opinions, demands and are swimming in judgements about our own bodies and sexuality from society that we have internalized. Tantra is way to bring healing and connect our bodies to our divinity. It is about allowing and unveiling each unique person to be their most free, conscious, and loving selves.

All experience levels, sexual orientations, and gender identities are welcomed. Come partnered and or solo, this introductory workshop is to help everyone deepen individually and collectively. This is a safe, sacred, sex, and body positive space.
