Pleasure Principle (3 of 3)

PLEASURE: In class 1, we discussed DD’s Principles of Pleasure, one of the core ideas is love or self-love. In class 2, we learned about the ways we are wired for pleasure.  In this class, we will combine the power of both of these concepts to develop our own 21 Day Pleasure Plan.  If you want to amp up the pleasure, joy and juice in your life, join us for an intimate and practical discussion. 

Passes will be sold individually. Need not attend all three to benefit.  Great for couples and singles. ♥

Red Roots

Red roots will be a Ceremony of connection and rebirth.
we will be moving through a sequence of playful exercises, extending our roots of creation deep into the wet soil of Pacha Mama.🌹
The first two fundamental emotional needs of a baby are connection and attunement.
We get our connection needs met when we are held, lovingly touched, and nurtured. We get our attunement needs met when the caregiver tunes into our subtle emotional and physical needs.
If we do not get sufficient connection and attunement , We inevitably develop a sense of emotional abandonment.
When this happens, the infant is reluctant to allow their soul to come all the way into their body, and grow roots into the earth.
If truth be told, we find this dimension harsh, violent, overstimulating, dense and painful. On some level we seem to remember lighter planes of existence, and we really don’t want to be here! As a result we hover halfway out of our body, trying to achieve a degree of safety by not coming all the way in.
The fundamental challenge of the root chakra is fear. We are afraid for our survival and how we are going to get our needs met. In order to know courage you have to know fear. We will notice fears that come up and break through them through movement and meditation.

Do you have trouble really feeling that you belong in a city or community?

Do you ever feel shame about existing?

What would it feel like to be safely connected to the earth in your community?

How would it feel to be stable in a strong wind, like a tree with a great root system.

What to expect:
We will begin with opening circle including introduction and body awareness exercises.
From there we will open into some authentic relating and movement.
Once we have broken up stagnation we ground down into silence in the mind, body, and spirit. We will cozy up and take a journey with a guided imagery meditation to close. 

Tickets are $25.


Dress comfortable and wear red.♥️❤️♥️🌹
Rose tea will be provided.
