Sex Magick:
Exploring the Boundaries of Intimacy

 

 

About the facilitators.

 

These Sex Magick veterans have committed to continuing the work started by Harry Hay in 1990.
     
 

The workshop will be, in large part, driven by the participants. It will follow the long Faerie Circle tradition with each member having equal rights and responsibilities of participation. The facilitators will provide guidelines and a roadmap to “ritual space" and a foundation of emotional and spiritual support for the workshop.  All facilitators are trained and skilled veterans of the workshop and offer unique perspectives and gifts. 

 

Trixie is passionate about building faerie community throughout the globe, and is honored to help hold the container for this amazing work.

He claims the power of the Big Fat Sissy and is a devotee of Radical Beauty and Conscious Desire. Ze has been lurking around the edges, and occasionally stepping into the center, of various progressive communities for several decades as a priestess, performer, teacher, and grass roots activist. Pansy currently resides in Spokane, Washington, USA.

Rosie Delicious first attended Sex Magick in 1996, a workshop that changed his life AND his faerie name (he used to be called Rosebud - but, as he reports, "Rosebud bloomed!").  Rosie is an artist, sex shaman and writer.  Rosie has been active in the faerie community since 1990 creating sex/heart circles, writing and editing for RFD, as well as co-facilitating these workshops since 2000.

Currently, Rosie is developing a new lifestyle as an itinerant fey, as well as a new website www.houseofdelicious.com to track his work in the world.  You can also see his work on eggshells @ www.paulwirhun.com.

Chas is one of those long time Faeries, workshop leaders & participants. A personal comrade of Harry's, he's been intimately involved with the workshops since their founding.  He continues to find joy in helping to facilitate the workshops and the relationships that sprout.  Based mostly in San Francisco, he also enjoys puns.

Keystone was, in 1997, "a faerie waiting to happen."  His time as a faerie has been a non-stop journey of brotherhood, sexual discovery and healing, and ridiculous amounts of fun and drama.  He first participated in Sex Magick in 2005, returning as often as possible, as a participant, cook and, more often, a facilitator.  

Keystone used the fortitude and fierceness that he uncovered as a faerie to stage an impromptu nude protest of the TSA at Portland International Airport. Learn more at Naked American Hero.  He's also a long-distance backpacker and drag clown.

~robin hood (pronouns he/him) lives as a settler on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, the unceded ancestral lands of the Coast Salish Nations, with CrowDog, his partner of over 20 years. ~robin is a devotee of faggot magic and is moved to participate in the evolution of Faerie Sex Magick into an all-gender spell of ecstatic justice and erotic wellness. ~robin works in counsel with individuals and groups to re-activate imagination and motivation through our mutual practices of emotional intimacy, body sovereignty and cultural liberation, the collective restoration of dignity from soul-damaging Supremacies.

 

Boyscout is a radical faerie living in Berlin who’s been around (some parts of) the world a few times, with longer stops in Hungary, Austria, France, Canada, and the US. Sex Magick turned his world upside down and helped him rediscover all the colors of honest intimacy and lovesex as he was first recovering from some dark times of addiction. It still does, and that’s why he wants to share the magick and tend the community. He’s also done some work on queer history and feels connected to the legacy of the faeries and the rituals of our communities, since that’s also where we make our future.

Morgain Lessloss, was discovered by the Radical Faeries in 1995 (when he thought he was training for ordination in a Canadian Christian tradition).  The Faeries gave words to what Morgain always knew in his soul--that sexuality and spirituality can not be separated and that attempting to do so is violence to the human psyche.     Meeting the Faeries led Morgain to: leave the Christian tradition; live into pre-Christian Celtic spirituality and the Wiccan tradition; become a high-priestess of the Goddess Ravenna Ravine; become an ethical slut; and spend 14 years studying with a First Nation’s Elder (leading sweat lodge and pipe ceremonies for 10 of those years).  In 2009/2010, Morgain once again acknowledged his calling to ordered life, but this time in a queer context, and took vows to become a Sister of Perpetual Indulgence and founded the Vancouver Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence (where he is known as Sr. Merry Q. Contrary).  Keystone
 Keystone Mushroom (preferred pronouns: they/ them/ theirs)   A Radical Albion/Eurofaerie in an open relationship with a lovely long term partner in Brighton England, who is working at fitting this together with the complexities arising while opening up to an exciting variety of loving, consensual, non-monogamous intimacies.   Mushroom was blown away by the personally transformative power of the first Euro-Faerie Sex Magick workshop held at Folleterre in 2013 and instantly wanted to help the culture of 'Loving Companionship' to take root in Europe by engaging with numerous workshops- taking on the role as co-facilitator/participant since 2015  
"After each workshop I have become more nuanced, confident and informed in my approach to intimacy. I can now be much clearer about how best to nourish and sustain my (and others') appetite for intimacy. I'm able to see ever more clearly what might be reasonable for me to expect from myself and others... I love the fact that, by engaging with the workshops and, by developing the discourse around how we, as queers, might be capable of 'differently BEING' with each other, both physically and emotionally, I am engaged in this amazing communal venture of 'queering consciousness together'. "  
Mushroom is particularly excited to be a co-facilitating participant for the piloting of a  'Full Spectrum' gender and sexuality inclusive workshop, offering the transformative magick of the traditional cis/trans* men's workshops to the whole of our Faerie community.   Having spent the totality of a working life in a caring role, Mushroom has learnt to talk less and to listen with attention to the unsaid. As a Faerie they are continuing to learn...  
-how best to trust in the simplicity of disclosing their own authentic truth and  
-how intimacy with others flows naturally when this is happening all at once in community.
Yellowstone National Treasure is part of the Portland Radical Faerie community and is active in cultivating community culture both personally and professionally. Bringing a sense of humor and a willingness to speak directly and honestly, he isn’t afraid to follow the process as it unfolds with deep witness.   Sharing with a strong heart and open mind he invites participation that stirs the core of being.

David Skybluewaters (our fabulous long-time administrator), after attending three Faerie Sex Magick workshops,  decided that his inveterate list making and OCD leanings could be better used to support FSM rather than creatively rearranging his sock drawer. That’s why, when he’s not watering his roses in Sonoma County, CA, he loves adding all the registration data to its individual boxes in our shared docs.
