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...

    Hello Oregon!
    Like I said in my intro, I`m a traveler from Belgium in search of likeminded people to learn how you guys build community, educate eachother, and how you live and love! Next to this, I`m always looking for people who can host me on my hitchhiking journey along the westcoast! (take me to your events!)

    I look forward to the next time I am able to attend these lovely events. Unfortunately, I do not know when that will be at this time. I thought I was going to be able to attend last week (didn't happen), and now this week isn't happening either. :( So, I've decided to just remain still and when it happens, it will happen. Hopefully, I will see you all very soon.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
