Workshops

The Pleasure Project, Reclaiming Female Pleasure, will explore what pleasure means; what brings participants pleasure through meditation and journaling; our ability and comfort with accessing pleasure; how being disconnected from joy and pleasure leads to a less embodied, less holistic life; and the social justice/feminist issue of pleasure.

Over 3 sessions, 2 hours each, we will utilize accessible tools to examine pleasure, including yoga, herbalism, and wild edible plants.

 

The sessions are open only to those that identify as women, as women and pleasure can be a taboo subject and we would like to create a safe space for discussion. Pre-walking infants are welcome to attend.

 

Each session is $40. Please wear comfortable clothing, dress in layers, and bring a yoga mat, cushion, and journal. Pre-registration is required here:  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pleasure-project-reclaiming-female-pleasure-tickets-63034072608

 

The Pleasure Project Session 1: Yoga+Creativity

8/18/19

9am-11am

In the yogic model of the body, creativity and pleasure are intimately connected in the second chakra. Using outdoor yoga, meditation, and the creation of a pleasure journal, we will inquire into areas of creativity and pleasure within the body and set intentions around the manifestation of a more embodied and joyful life. We will also learn about the second chakra and yoni health, including yoga exercises to connect with your pelvic floor and energetic womb space.

 

The Pleasure Project Session 2: Herbalism + Self-Care

10/6 /19

9am-11am

Herbalism is the medicinal use of plants, and we will explore how plant allies can be used for substantive self-care, wellness, and stress management, all of which are necessary to access joy and pleasure in life. We will utilize whole body sensing of 3-5 herbs to connect with their energetics and enter a relationship with the plants. We will create massage oils and salves for participants to bring home.

 

The Pleasure Project Session 3: Wild Edibles + Body Image

11/10/19

9am-11am

Comfort with your body is necessary for receiving and accessing pleasure and joy. We will discuss utilizing plant allies for pleasurable eating and nurturance as well as body neutrality and positivity; Health at Every SizeTM; and mindful and intuitive eating, movement, and meditation techniques. We will explore plant preparation and storage for fall and winter, such as the making of jams, ferments, and foraging for edible roots.
