Mindful Self Touch – Sydney – June 16th 2020
16 June @ 19:00 - 22:00$55
Mindful Self Touch
Most of us are not aware of the true capacity of or bodies, especially when it comes to our erotic selves.
A lot of our ways of self-pleasuring have been discovered amid secrecy and shame as teenagers. We have then evolved to use porn and fantasy to ‘get off’.
During this workshop we will be learning how to ‘get in’ to our bodies and use the five pillars of erotic work; awareness, breath, sound, movement and touch to enrich our own pleasure. We will learn how to play our own bodies like a musical instrument, discovering our high and low notes.
Gathering together as a group of men to explore our own bodies can create a powerful space of learning, acceptance and community. Practicing together as a group of men can create a rare and powerful erotic charge. This is a personal development course (not a circle jerk). This will be a non-clothed space.
In this workshop you will be working with your own body.
We will be adhering to social distancing and applying strict hygiene practices throughout this workshop.
