What we're about

Hello,

Welcome to the Austin OM Community meetup page! We are very excited that you have found your way into an exhilarating new way to experience sexuality, relationship dynamics, and communication!

First, let me say that if you have any questions about this amazing practice or our events, please don’t hesitate to contact me, the group organizer. I also want to quickly mention that this group is no longer run by OneTaste. We are a privately run group of Orgasmic Meditation (OM for short) Practitioners in the Austin area and we are grateful to OneTaste for bringing the experience of OM to the world on a larger scale.

The Austin OM Community Meetup page offers many events for both practitioners who have already been formally trained and for those who are simply curious or intrigued about OM and would like to know more. If you are one of the curious, we hope you will use us as a resource to answer any questions you may have. If you have already been formally OM trained, we welcome and encourage you to come out and meet the gang!

Austin OM Community is a community of people who know the importance of practice, who gather together to have honest conversations and add the element of practice to relationship, orgasm, and intimacy.

Our MeetUp events are designed to enable others who do this amazing practice a way to connect and OM and learn from each other about our experiences within the practice and how it affects our lives in all areas as we grow and transform together.

You can participate at whatever level feels good to you within the container of the practice.

What is OM?

Orgasmic Meditation (OM) is a practice that combines the power and attention of meditation with the deeply human, deeply felt, and connected experience of orgasm.

What is OMing?

A 15-minute partnered, consciousness practice, where one partner strokes the other one's clitoris for 15 minutes with no goal other than to feel and be present.

There’s an important distinction that’s worth making between climax and the orgasm state. Climax is a few seconds of physical experience, whereas the state of orgasm is continuous—allowing OMers to access optimal state of consciousness brought about by the activation of the sex impulse.

When harnessed consciously, orgasm can enhance us as human beings. Science and experience agree - orgasm can incline people towards empathy, connection, and generosity. Orgasm magnifies, intensifies, and vivifies everyday experience, not by altering it, but by revealing it in its true nature and has astounding implications for our health, happiness, and relationships.

To learn more, watch the founder of OM, Nicole Daedone’s TED talk ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9QVq0EM6g4 )

Currently, we meet every Saturday at 6:30 pm for Community Dinner. This event is attended mostly by people who are interested in learning more about OM. This event is attended mostly by people who are interested in learning more about OM. Steve and Magda (and her son James) and often myself are available to answer any questions about the practice or how to get trained. Sometimes other community members join us as well, but it is really more of an introduction point for newcomers who would like to meet someone face to face before they set up a time to go through the training. If you don't feel you need to meet with us and would like to just jump right ahead to being a part of our community or to start an Orgasmic Meditation practice, You are welcome to send me a message and I would be happy to answer any questions you may have or schedule a time for a training with either myself or another qualified trainer.
If you already have a partner and/or would like to learn to OM privately outside of our community events, please message me about some free resources I can offer to get you started on your practice. We meet upstairs at Central Market 4001 North Lamar Blvd. Please be sure to RSVP so we know to look for you!

We hold a weekly OM Practice Group for practitioners that have been formally OM trained every Sunday at 6 pm. The locations are on a rotating schedule, please contact us for this information, if you are formally trained and would like to attend. If you are unsure of what constitutes “formally trained”, please contact me for more information. We often have additional OM practice groups or workshops and will be updating the meetup as they occur.

Every Sunday at 7 pm, we hold Gender Groups, where both men and women can discuss the intricacies of this revolutionary practice with other men or other women. This is a great place to get support or have questions answered or just be seen and heard in your human experience. This event is open to all who are 18 and older and interested in OM. This location also rotates, please contact me for ways we can get you connected on threads or in person, so you don’t miss a thing!

All of our events are drug and alcohol free, but full of connection!

Our events are currently donation based only and there is no set fee or charge to attend our events.

---We use a Whatsapp thread that's exclusive to formally trained OM practitioners within our community to stay connected, discuss OM related topics, and post the details of our events. The meetup is for community outreach purposes and those who are curious to learn more about the practice.

***The RSVP's on Meetup are not indicative of the number of attendees for each Meetup.***Please do not let this deter you from RSVP'ing, however, if you plan to attend, so that we can look for you to arrive and make sure you get to the right place!

We look forward to Meeting Up with YOU!

In case you’ve forgotten the potency of this practice and why we love it; I’ve included a few of my favorite Nicole Daedone quotes that speak to the heart of what OM is really all about.

Enjoy! :)

“I learned some key things in that time that I am bringing to you. The first is that female orgasm is vital for every single woman on the planet. The second is that it is not so bad for the guys either. The third, and on a much more serious note, is that it roots our fundamental capacity for connection. “

“For the first time in my life I felt like I had access to that hunger that was underneath all of my other hungers, which is a fundamental hunger to connect with another human being.”

“The only difference is that you get to be absorbed there with your partner.You get to have this most profound and deep experience with another human being.”

“There is no way you ever, ever, ever could have convinced me to try this thing. What happened was I tried it, and that convinced me.”

“The best thing you have to lose is that sense of hopelessness that you will ever be reached deep inside. I set about this journey, and I can tell you that there was a moment when I received a stroke that could never be taken back. It was a stroke where I knew I had been returned to my birthright of my capacity to perceive and receive pleasure.”

“It's going to be a very different definition of orgasm than we know. It is not going to be that fleeting moment of climax that seems to take the whole rest of the act hostage; it's going to be a definition of orgasm that actually works with the woman's body.”

“The status quo is there to douse potential fires. You are here to start them.” - The Turned On Women’s Manifesto

" There is an underlying intelligence that runs through all of us that we have either plugged into or not."

"Those that are plugged in recognize each other in a way that feels ancient and familiar."

"The one who gets vulnerable first wins."

"Your desire wants great things for you."

"Orgasm is the best teacher I know for how to be human."

"What I've discovered is that in every single world the most taboo thing is vulnerability."

" I don't imagine that there's anything more interesting than total absolute immersion into orgasm and all of the beautiful animation that arises from that."

“No pants are the best pants.”

Ha! Just kidding! That last one isn’t Nicole, We just liked it :)

Slow Sex Book Club-OPEN Event

Contact me for venue info

Hello, I am very excited to have the Slow Sex book club happening weekly at 3 pm with a circle beforehand at 2 pm for those of us who have already been formally trained. Slow Sex is a wonderful book written by Nicole Daedone who is the founder of the Orgasmic Meditation practice that our community is formed around. This practice has brought so much awareness , transformation, and connection to our lives! This book is a fun and easy and discussion provoking book that talks about common challenges people face in relating to the opposite sex and why our conditioning can create a crossed wire in our relationships that keep us from the connections we desire. It also talks about the practice in great detail and discusses the relevance of how the practice allows us to uncross these wires and have the real connections we desire in al of our relationships! If you can’t make it each week, that is ok. It is going to be held with a more flexible format. We will also have a discussion thread on WhatsApp for those of us who would like to participate but cannot make it to the group at that time. I do ask that you purchase the book as soon as possible, so that you can start reading and follow along. Here is a link on amazon to purchase the book Although it doesn’t appear to be working. Slow Sex: The Art and Craft of the Female Orgasm https://www.amazon.com/dp/0446567183/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_c_api_i_DhbKCb7V7Y10K I also suggest checking out a site called abebooks.com they often have used books for cheaper, even with the shipping. Here is a pink for that one, but be warned that some people have had issues with getting the book quickly, so pay close attention to the arrival date before purchase if possible. If it will take quite a while to receive the book, downloading a kindle version or ordering on amazon may be a better route. If it says this book is no longer available, scroll down to the other listings for this book and choose another one for this selection. https://www.abebooks.com/servlet/BookDetailsPL?bi=7576197680&searchurl=isbn%3D0446567183%26sortby%3D17

Mama Gena's once a month Women's group led by Karen Baker, open to all women

Join us once a month as we explore the power of pleasure! One of the tenets of OM is transformation through discovering our desires. Similarly, we will be traversing the world that Mama Gena's School of Womanly Arts opens up for us and the richness is that it is entirely based on our pleasure! Mama Gena is a feminist icon and founder of the School of Womanly Arts in New York City. Women from all 50 states and more than 50 countries join her to learn how to get their way in life…THROUGH PLEASURE! This event is free and for women only. Karen Baker will be leading us through this series while we join along in reading the book by Regena Thomashauer "Mama Gena's School of Womanly Arts". Karen completed the Mastery program through the School in 2006 and is happy to share her knowledge with us as we all embark into joining the global community of "sister goddesses" who cheer each other to new heights of happiness, joy, self-expression, and play! We'll get to know each other with a few introductory rounds of light sharing. Then we'll dive into Regena Thomashauer's 1st book, Mama Gena's School of Womanly Arts. As we go, we'll sharpen our perception with "exercises" in the each chapter as we go along. Please contact the organizer with any questions, including location information or any information about the OM community, how to get trained, or the practice of OM.
