Men, have you ever wanted to be privy to the most heartfelt conversations women have amongst themselves when they talk about men--when they're not negative, but compassionate and probing? Do you want to hear what women say to each other when they feel comfortable to truly disclose their longings, describe how they want to be made love to, what turns them on, and off, and how it is to grow up female in our world?
Women, have you ever wanted to witness a group of men who feel safe enough to talk amongst their brothers about what's it like to be a man, how it is to grow up with male genitalia, what they seek in intimate partnerships, what are their sexual turn ons, and offs, what attracts and repels them in relationship?
Meaningful, transparent same-sex conversations where the opposite sex is invited to eavesdrop are rare, and make a lively, meaty, surprising, scary, and worthwhile evening. And, you, my friends, are "it" for the next Tantra in Texas Meetup, The Fishbowl Experience. Your presence is encouraged; you are the show.
Fishbowls are facilitated inner-outer circles where each gender takes a turn being on the hot seat (inner circle), responsible for sharing their innermost truths about being male or female, sexuality and intimacy. And each gender takes a turn at being the 'fly on the wall' (outer circle), silently 'witnessing' the experience of the other sex. Fishbowls are not about judgment or comparison as much as awareness and respect. Facilitated group shares will follow each same-sex circle.
Fishbowl facilitator for the women is Charla Hathaway, and for the men, Daniel Maldonado.
Charla Hathaway shows people new ways to touch, talk, and play that feel sensual and safe. She founded the BodyJoy Intimacy School in Austin, is a Tantra educator and author of 8 Erotic Nights: Passionate Encounters and Erotic Massage, available in nine languages.
