What interests you about the topic and what do you hope to find out more about?
Sex is an integral part of life. Sharing and listening to other experiences with individuals provides greater perspective in various topics about sex, as it branches into other subjects in being human.
-What kind of erotic presence do you hold? -What is the range and depth of you sexual embodiment? -What can you call forth from your lover? -What are your edges and how do they hold you back from expressing and enjoying your full erotic potential?
SEX MAGIC is a monthly workshop series, in which we will share and play with some conceptual and technical tools designed to deepen awareness, and enhance pleasure & connection during a sexual encounter.
I will be co- facilitating each meeting with different speakers/ workshop leaders from related ares, such as tantra, sexual artistry, female ejaculation, multiple orgasms, orgasmic meditation and more..
We are excited to open our toolboxes, which we have created in many years of studying and practicing a variety of approaches to influencing, attuning and aligning mind and body. We are also curious what new tools will come to life through your participation. There is a Sex Magician in every one of us.
SEX MAGIC is a combination of external techniques and internal practices. Most of them are aimed at heightening our ability to feel into the intricacies of our experience, to influence it’s quality and to strengthen our presence.
We will also show some of its uses in uncovering, evoking and embodying erotic archetypes. They can be valuable and exciting allies for heightening sensitivity, strengthening awareness, sexual healing and for widening the range of erotic play.
This monthly event is a laboratory for diving deeper into the fabric of human experience and the energies of intention, bliss and presence. We experiment with different ways of using these energies as vehicles for consciousness exploration.
Through lecture, sharing and exploratory exercises, we will journey on a discovery process that will deepen our erotic self and strengthen our ability to use different aspects of our consciousness to bring more awareness, richness and pleasure in our life.
Come solo or with a partner, but come prepared to discover new ways to make your experience magical!
Admission is between $15- $25- the sooner you prepay, the cheaper it is. Price at the door is usually $25-35 sliding scale.

WHAT PARTICIPANTS ARE SAYING ABOUT SEX MAGIC: About the Meetup on 7.1.2010 with me and Alison Leigh MFT: “ Excellent! Ali and Meriana are experienced, skillful, delightful, and playful. They created and held a safe space for me to experience and explore. I felt safe. Many somatic processes are intentionally established. Big deal for me, since personally I don't value the teaching from the "head". David Song Telstimonials bout previous Meetups I co- facilitated with Shara Ogin: “ It was a lot of fun! I'm learning a lot from meeting people of different walks of life. Loved the game! ” Flo “ A fascinating look into sexual energy (and energy in general). Meriana's honesty about herself was not only touching but created a comfortable environment for listening and sharing. ” Steven Ross “ Oh listen, I keep unfolding wonderful thoughts about my experience of opening up, sharing, and encountering people willing to share confusions and fears about meeting the opposite sex , and exploring the energy between people and my own identity as a sexual being. The leaders were supportive, and gave interesting departure points from which to explore our sensitivity and archetypes and paradigms. They encouraged everyone and showed us how to begin. I feel a new world of self- understanding and self-questioning can be opened up by participating in this workshop. Lets continue! ” Emilie Kemlo
