Come join us Wednesday for TurnON Portland!

How often do we get an opportunity to be real with each other?

It can feel unsafe, inappropriate, or unwelcome by those around you.

Instead, imagine meeting new people in an environment where people felt comfortable to be themselves. That's what we've created!

It's a refreshing change from the typical networking or sports bar conversation.

You get the opportunity to examine yourself. Through other people putting quality attention on you, asking questions with genuine curiosity, and then listening - really listening – to your responses.

What comes up might surprise you!

We play three communication games that will challenge you to consider questions like 'What are your relationships like?' 'What does Orgasm mean to you?' and 'What's one secret desire you have?'

Questions like these encourage vulnerability. And, what happens when you get vulnerable? It creates intimacy... which is what we're all searching for!

It's amazing how connected we can end up feeling - even in a room full of strangers - when we are willing to say what's real.

OneTaste as an organization teaches a practice called Orgasmic Meditation, otherwise known as OM. The games we play at TurnON are designed to create the visceral sensation of Orgasm/OM in your body, without having to actually do the practice (or remove any clothing!) - sort of like having the feeling of an incredible dessert without having consumed any of the calories. 

You can play at whatever level feels comfortable to you. You don't have to do anything you don't want to, or answer any questions you don't want to answer.

It's a friendly invitation to play and push your edges in a way that feels good. This allows you to stretch yourself and inspires self-discovery!

We start on time so please arrive fifteen minutes early.


For questions feel free to contact...

    Getting to experience what I identified as my heart chakra opening was indeed a gift--a gift that everyone contributed to last night, so thank you all very much! I experienced a vulnerability w/in my heart that I was not quite prepared for--something that crept into me later in the night after I had processed the evening. I can only describe it as foreign at this point; a communication within me being voiced in language that I haven't taken the time to listen to in an attempt to understand it. It has left me a little shaky, but warmly comforted that I am able to walk through new doorways--one of my motivations for showing up and attending TurnOn events. If I am not challenging myself to better understand my intimacies within, then I begin to walk around with blinders on. I need this vulnerability to further embrace my true nature into the human experience. This group is showing me the benefits of the kind of transparency I seek to understand--it's uncomfortable. Thank you.

      Wonderful! Thank you for sharing how this played out for you, Elo. This work does bring out things we generally don't take the time to listen to. Wanting to understand yourself is a noble goal and we are here to help facilitate that. :)
