Class Descriptions

Honoring Our Plant Teachers: Reciprocity through Communication

As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul… we are connected to all things and all things are connected to us. With that understanding, we are able to gain the wisdom of our ancestors and teachers embodied in plant spirits. In this interactive workshop, we will discuss the history of communication with plants as teachers, sustainable practices in harvesting, & deepening our relationship to these beings. Participate or listen, they are open to share their knowledge.

Community Empowerment Song Circle

This is a circle for all people to come together in song, celebration, and commUNITY. Bridging empowerment practices of integrating consent culture with the power of sharing the voice through song and vulnerable shares. Throughout this circle we will rise together in singing while also tracking our experiences to help us understand what we feel in each moment and what that means for us in how we’d like to navigate our lives in a way that most serves us! Join us in this fulfilling communal connection.

Activating Somatic Intelligence: Boundaries & Desires

In this consensual and experiential container, we embark on a somatic journey into our personal relationship with boundaries and desires. We have the opportunity to feel and speak boundaries, investigate our needs and wants, give and receive feedback and practice resiliency in the face of it all. We will create a safe yet affirming environment where we can understand, forgive and re-evaluate the parts of ourselves that may inhibit us from sharing our truth with authenticity and confidence.

Conscious Evolution: Biology, ancestry, and how to direct future change

How did humans evolve to have self-aware consciousness? How has human culture been evolving over time and why did spirituality appear? How can the blessings that we inherited from our ancestors constrain our current reality? And how can we move to the next level of our potential? In this workshop we will go back in time and uncover the biological and cultural processes that led to the current state of affairs and also develop the tools to aid in next major cultural shift, our Conscious Evolution

The Transparent Sexual Pursuit

A discussion on clear, concise communication that allows us to better verbalize our intentions, wants, needs and desires when choosing to pursue someone with whom we have an attraction towards, or sexual interest in. We will focus on the topics of consent, consistent consent, transparent communication, rejection, rewarding positive behavior and what the transparent sexual pursuit looks like. We will take the opinions, suggestions and examples of the group and use them in a role-playing activity.

Cryptoanarchy: Consensual Economics and Governance via Decentralized Technology

Festival culture provides a container in which we can transform into planetary citizens with the skills necessary to thrive in a voluntary society. Decentralized technologies are powerful tools in augmenting and solidifying this transformation within our culture. Not only do these technologies afford us a means of establishing currencies with more ideal properties, they also allow us to self-organize and co-create with consensual, voluntary, peer-to-peer governance and economic models.

Endocannabinoid System Realization

This workshop shall offer a comprehensive look at the endocannabinoid system – its purpose, importance, and how it functions as a homeostatic regulator. With an emphasis on pre-clinical and clinical medical science understanding, cannabis will be illustrated as the plant that opened up the knowledge of this system and how this plant can be used, with its myriad of therapeutic components, as a catalyst for toning the ECS.

Healthy Masculinity - A Dialogue

A guided group chat and safe space for people to gather and discuss masculinity. Nothing is off limits and no one will be judged for expressing their real challenges and questions as we begin to reexamine masculinity and the gender roles for men. This is about honest discourse and finding our truth as masculine humans.

Us Too: Healing Sexual Trauma, Releasing Sexual Guilt and Shame
