Always seeking and seeking always…
A little news
I have to say that I never thought that I would find myself running off to do another workshop!
I am very excited to say that I am running off to do another workshop! A great way of CELEBRATING my BODY of EMANCIPATION!
This time in the workshop is taking place in the foothills of the coastal mountains just outside of Vancouver. A place called Loon Lake, not the Loon Lake that is 1/2 way between Cache Creek and Clinton, but the Loon Lake that is near Maple Ridge. The workshop fits perfectly into my schedule on November 8 to 15. I think I will stay the weekend in Vancouver and perhaps fly up to Williams Lake to visit my family. 😉
Funny enough one of the things that sticks in my mind, and totally opens my heart to the work, is that this event is billed as a way to explore boundaries around intimacy and actually uses the word SEX in it’s title! YUM!
I am very excited that this event is in CANADA and is being run in a way that make sense financially. The inclusive nature is welcoming of all participants. The event is open to anyone and the fee is $650.00 for a week including food and accommodation (NOT in a tent!). Also! This was of particular interest to me.
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 road-map to “sacred space” and a foundation of emotional and spiritual support for the workshop.

Sex Magick: Exploring the Boundaries of Intimacy
About the Workshop
Consider these questions . . .
How can I extend the limits of intimacy with my Faerie/Billy brothers?
Does sex constrain or expand my relationships with men?
How can I integrate sexual play into my intimate relationships?
Does recreational sex diminish my capacity for intimacy in a committed relationship?
How does the prevailing society’s prudishness dampen and undermine the intimacy in my relationships?
How does my sexuality and my spirituality inter-relate?
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 fences 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.
