INTRODUCTION TO WESTERN SEX MAGICK

by Rev Bill Duvendack (he/him)

 

A taboo subject, to be sure, Western Sex Magick is sometimes seen as nebulous or daunting when first looked at, and this is looking at it beyond just the sexuality and ethics on the surface. However, it is worth considering as a magickal technique because its potency can almost not be matched. The surprising thing about this technique is that anyone can do it, and it can manifest physical results when developed. In this presentation, we will discuss different techniques, as well as what can be done and even how to do it!

 

Right Rev Bill Duvendack is a 35+ year practitioner and student of the western mysteries, as well as being an internationally known astrologer; specifically, an esoteric astrologer, author, presenter, psychic, tarot reader, and teacher.

POLYAMORY 101: LOVING WITHOUT LIMITS
by Hillary Berry (she/her)

 

This class will teach you the different types of non monogamy with a special focus on polyamory, a relationship style in which a person has or intends to have multiple romantic relationships at the same time. We will cover the different ways that people practice polyamory, what makes these relationships work (and what makes them fail), what questions to ask potential partners, how to set boundaries in these relationships, and more!

CREATIVE WELLNESS AND SEXUAL IDENTITY
by Monica Phinney, RDT (she/ her)

 

The arts- visual art, drama, music, dance, and writing- are powerful tools for learning, growth, and healing. In this workshop, we will invite you to participate in several types of creative activities to explore themes of sexual wellness and the various "roles" we play in our sexual and romantic journeys and relationships.

She's featured in Netflix's Procession, and in addition to consulting, offers pop-up creative wellness workshops.

THE HISTORY AND PRACTICE OF STRIPPING
by Molly Pocket “StarDust” (she/her)

 

Get in touch with your inner stripper! In this class I will be a brief discussion about dancers' importance throughout history. Then individual floor work exercises. After that I will be teaching bed dances so bring a partner or feel free to partner up with someone there.

NUDE YOGA

by Xander Jobe (he/him)

 

Find liberation in practicing yoga without clothes; you will have the opportunity to learn and practice yoga poses taught by a certified yoga instructor, to shed some self judgement and to practice self compassion and move toward enjoyment and self acceptance. This class is great for both beginners and intermediate students. This will be a slow, sensual, deep stretching Yin-Yasa Yoga class. Beginners welcome.

Although this will be hosted at a sex positive retreat center where sexual interaction does sometimes occur, no sexual interaction or even touch between other attendees will occur.

 

Xander Jobe has been actively involved in the Kink Scene for the last 3. He has been practicing yoga and meditation for 5 years. He is an enthusiastic learner, ever evolving his flows to be gentler, more accessible to all bodies and exactly what you need in the moment. He is tuned into the zeitgeist and intuitively senses what people need with their practice. Xander incorporates meditation, breathwork and some flow into each of his classes and will leave you feeling like you’re on cloud 9. Xander considers himself to be caring and compassionate. He believes we all are able to learn and grow from one another. We each have something special to share.

 

“I think of myself as a part time peacekeeper, warrior of light, diplomat and overall lightworker. I’m here to serve you and help you to feel better in your mind, body and soul. It’s through the yoking(yoga) of mind and body you’ll be able to feel the peace and inner freedom of the always accessible now.”

SEXUAL TRAUMA: FINDING A SAFE SPACE
by Jacob (he/him)

 

We will begin with a presentation on how trauma affects the brain and the body. Afterwards, we will do group activities with friends and partners, participate in discourse and processing if people feel like sharing.

INVOCATION/EVOCATION
by Rev Bill Duvendack (he/him)

 

These terms are used quite often in books on magick, yet I do not generally see any clarity on what they are, and what they’re not. Often times these terms are used interchangeably and thus mistakenly. In this class we’re going to discuss what each one is, what each one is not, and the purpose and usefulness of each one.

INANNA RITUAL

SELF PLEASURE SHAMANIC DRUM JOURNEY
by Samsara Temple

Samsara Temple is proud to offer a Self-Pleasure Shamanic Drum Journey. This is a solo journey and sexual energies will be exchanged in the sounds through out the experience. Prepare to be immersed in a live drum, crystal singing bowl guided journey into your own personal pleasure nest.

After setting up your “nest” we will start with a consent and privacy discussion and give a verbal description of what the journey entails. If you choose, we will ask you to blindfold yourself and allow the journey to begin. We will guide you through a somatic meditation experience to help you drop into your body and the present moment. Then, we will begin the drumming. Next, we will guide you through a traditional Shamanic Journey, through the forest of Gaea, deep into the Earth and into your own cozy other dimensional nest. You will then be asked to call forth your guides, guardians, messengers, and other beings. We will then guide you through a Shamanic energetic balancing of your entire body with the beings you have called forth assisting you as you need and desire. Once we have moved through balancing, you will continue the self-pleasure masturbation journey at your own pace. Allowing yourself to fully feel into your pleasure principle, your source energy - feeling, hearing, smelling, tasting the delicious energies of those around you. The shared energies of everyone amplifying your orgasmic potential.

Ideally you will experience an actual physical orgasmic release and hopefully some powerful energetic orgasms as well. Once you have completed your release, you will stay quietly resting in your nest until everyone has finished. We will then play a crystal bowl to integrate the energy. We will have a brief sharing and closing circle.


Please Bring:

  • a water bottle

  • any non plug in and not loud sex toys you want to use on yourself

  • your own lube, if you need it

  • any crystals or sacred objects you want to charge with the energy we create

  • a towel for clean up

  • pillows and blankets

  • a yoga mat for your “nest”
