Transcending the Boundaries of Intimacy
About the Workshop
||Consider these questions . . .
How can I extend the limits of intimacy with my
Does sex constrain or expand my relationships
How can I better integrate sexual play
and my desires
into my intimate relationships?
Does recreational sex diminish my
capacity for intimacy in a committed relationship?
How does the prevailing societys
prudishness dampen and undermine the intimacy in my relationships?
How does my sexuality and my spirituality
Are my sexual and my spiritual aspects
one in the same?
If any of these issues resonate with you, join us for
a concentrated exploration and testing of the waters of deeper intimacy,
Sex Magick, and spirit/sex integration. Based on the successful and provocative
workshops developed by Harry Hay, this 7-day retreat is designed to challenge
and take down the habits and patterns keeping us from achieving levels of intimacy
not previously found.
We face many barriers in working to realize our
vision. AIDS, sexual addiction, objectification, ageism, looks-ism,
internalized heterosexism, unrealistic expectations. These issues
look large as we begin this crucial next step in manifesting our
collective faerie vision the ritual realization of subject-Subject
consciousness that is the basis of Radical Faerie reality. We achieve
our vision by collectively creating as the core our Workshop,
(and for the duration only) a Ritual Space within which safe
and sacred precinct we freely empower ourselves, and each other,
to set aside our boundaries in order to experience the same total
loving sharing with another as we do in loving ourselves.

first call to Sex Magick
Keeping the Space Safe
In order to explore deeper levels of intimacy and sharing, its vital
we create a safe and trusting space for the participants. So, we start
with some boundaries we ask each participant to respect. These include:
- The workshop is open to those who want to challenge
themselves to expand their capacity for greater emotional and physical
intimacy. We especially encourage those
who have already begun the process of inner growth and self-exploration
regarding relationships to participate.
- We all agree that whatever we create with each other
at the Workshop does not create entitlements or expectations after the
Workshops has ended
- The workshop will be limited to the first 15 registrants.
- We ask you to leave drugs and alcohol behind so that
we may explore our depths together unimpeded.
- Experience sitting and participating in Heart Circles or the like is essential.
- We ask that you are comfortable or open with nudity.
- Previous experience and being comfortable with Faerie,
Queer Spirit, Polyamory or similar gatherings will help a lot.
- We value our precious Faerie vision by honoring
and respecting one another's boundaries around safer sex.
- We agree to work with one another towards mutually
chosen group horizons.
- We respect and endorse
affirmative consent and call for authenticity in all expressions
between people in the workshop.
The Workshops have traditionally been
"male-only" spaces, and we are excited to introduce a new workshop
inclusive of all genders and sexualities to what is offered. We warmly welcome and encourage all Gay
and Bi men - including trans men - to sign
up for any workshop.
The only restriction is for
workshops labeled 269 where
participants are expected to have attended a full 169 workshop within the
past 3 years. Our workshops may have a range of bodies including a
delicious variety of cocks, balls and chests. We ask participants to
expect the unexpected and be open and honest about their feelings.
