What we're about
The Exploring Eros meetup is for individuals (and couples!) interested in sharing and learning about love, sexuality, men and women, relationships and the ecstatic.....creating more connection and capacity for enjoyment. This group will be exploring a wide range of topics both in the personal and the broader social and cultural contexts. All denominations, orientations and lifestyles are welcome.
This meetup is one of the local pathways groups of The Ollin Institute (http://www.ollininstitute.com) that offers training, events and collective ventures that cultivate connection, expression, purpose and growth. See a list of our groups HERE. (http://www.ollininstitute.com/meetups)
