The Body Electric School is hosting two sacred sex retreats for women and queers in May. The first is a residential workshop from May 13 to 15 in New York. This workshop is called "Power, Surrender & Intimacy" and is taught by Alex Jade. Here's a description of it.
This workshop explores techniques of BDSM practice, using the circle of women as a grounded, respectful container in which to discover and clarify edges of empowerment, liberation and embodiment. Learn to recognize aspects of yourself that are continually engaged in power dynamics, and hence become more choiceful about how you can share power with compassion and skill. Learn ways that power and sensation can be wielded for a healing intention, and experience the intense fire generated by a surrender to trust. Expect heightened awareness of your body’s capacity for sensation, a greater sense of personal empowerment, and appreciation for the connection between the divine energy of power and the human energy of surrender.
You can register online for this retreat.
The second retreat is called "Celebrating the Body Erotic for Women." It takes place in Oakland from May 20 to 22 and is taught by Lizz Randall.
In a safe, serious and playful space that respects boundaries, embrace pleasure and experience your body as powerful, expressive and sacred. The class expands awareness and sensation through a process of breath, movement and touch. Each woman's choices and rhythms are honored and celebrated. This workshop is for women of all sexual orientations and ages who are ready to learn about their own power to illuminate and enjoy sexuality and sensuality within a community of women.
