Chi Gung - with Damian

Chi Gung (or Qigong) is a holistic system of coordinated body posture and movement, breathing, and meditation used for the purposes of health, spirituality, and martial arts training.

When practiced, chi gung can help us to connect deeper to the life force energy of the Earth and the Universe around us. It brings peace, awareness, and a greater sense of balance in our minds, bodies & emotional state.

Floored! Beginner Rigging

Floored! - Two part class - Beginner (riggers must be able to tie a single column tie and have some experience of rope)

The aim of the class is that by the end you should have some idea of the range of sexy, beautiful and torturous possibilities that floorwork brings and have the tools and approaches to explore this with partners. Through this I want to teach a little bit around body mechanics in ties.

This class will look at a selection patterns for floor ties, including some more interesting and challenging variations on well known classics. We will also look at how we can combine some of these shapes for aesthetically pleasing results as well as how we can approach the tie in a way which makes the experience of tying/being tied fun and exciting.

Candid Collective: Pussy Magnets

In this educational, creative and possibly very silly workshop you will create a either a penis or vulva fridge magnet using easy-to-use and colourful modelling clay.

Throughout the workshop we will give clear instructions of how to make the models, using correct language for these body parts as well as talking about all of the ways that genitals are pretty amazing! They’ll be plenty of our favourite facts about penises and vulvas as we encourage guests to think of their genitals as just another part of their body to be accepted and loved, just as they are!

Be Your Own Beard - with Mr Wesley Dykes

Join Mr Wesley Dykes, your friendly neighbourhood fxckboi, for beard crafting and storytelling, as we celebrate and hold space for the weird, wonderful, and not-so-wonderful things we have gone through to be the people we are today.

Please be cognizant that this space is primarily for LGBTQI folks. Allies are more than welcome but please be aware of the space you may be taking up at any time.

Emotional Intimacy with Joy & Will

In this workshop we will introduce some of the foundational principles of how to work with, engage and become intimate with the emotional body

We will explore the main emotions, their energy and their corresponding sensations; the triggers that bring them to the surface and the tools techniques that allow for more conscious awareness within the emotional system.

This is a key factor in emotional intimacy with others, which is required for relating in a way that can feel both vulnerable and safe at the same time. 

We will underpin all these ideas with a grounding in embodiment and meditation practice. This will keep the ideas alive and will give space for people to feel their way through the workshop, rather that it being all about an intellectual understanding.

We will engage in partner work, in a safe and held space for people to explore their emotions, the triggers and the reactions, and explore healthy communication around this.
