Sampling of Workshops: 

 Hawaiian Shamanism,

with Tracy Matfin

Aloha means a lot more than “hello” and “goodbye”.  Aloha is the essence of maintaining love and light in your life. Following the adventurer style of shamanism this workshop explores several Hawaiian concepts which increase connection.  Part two will be a field trip to McKenzie Park where we will embody our connections to the elements.  These principles have been elemental to my own personal growth and I am excited to share them with you!  

What’s In the Field Between Us?

 Sarah Taub & Debby Sugarman

Over the years we’ve been building a culture that supports intimacy by teaching skills for healthy boundaries, handling painful emotions, holding space for others’ process, and so on. Now it’s time to take it to the next level. When the need arises to give difficult feedback or address something that’s getting in the way of getting close to another person, many times we still let it go, not wanting to ruin a happy moment or create a rift. But in reality, we’re keeping ourselves from intimacy when we could have it. When we’re willing to tell another person what’s keeping us from getting closer, we actually get closer.

Erecting Sacred Erotic Community

with Kelly Bryson

"We need community in which the latent war between the genders has ended, in which free sexuality is based on truth and trust, and in which our fellow beings are respected as cooperation partners within a sacred alliance.  We need intimate cooperation with nature and the universe because healing is the reconnection with the original power field of the divine world.  This applies to the individual organism, to the organism of a community, and to the organism of all humankind." By Dietre Duhm in the book "Terra Nova"  

Heinze Kohut the existential psychologist said, “What human beings most need is the mirroring presence of others." 

Why? So we can know and accept our needs, feelings, essential selves, personalities, hearts, spirituality, sexuality and souls. From this supportive, conscious and empowered community container, individuals can be fully expressed. I believe so many great organizations and communities do not have all the tools, or Tribal Technologies as I call them, to facilitate the development of what Martin Luther King Jr. called “The Beloved Community”.  90% experiential workshop
