Formerly know as Queer Touch Rituals, your organizer, TTBaum (http://www.integral-eros.com) recently changed the name and focus of this group to Intimacy Academy. Under the umbrella of Intimacy Academy you will still find Queer Touch Rituals as well as more and expanded events and playshops.
Intimacy Academy is an adults only, primarily queer, nude event space! The intention of this space is to explore our bodies, investigate the relationship between sex and spirit, and play with new tools for expanding our embodied experiences.
Unless otherwise specified, all bodies are welcome at Intimacy Academy events: old bodies, young bodies, fat bodies, thin bodies, trans bodies, cis bodies, differently abled bodies; bodies of any class, race, ethnicity, spiritual tradition, sexual preference and orientation. While there is no way to guarantee that all bodies will be represented at every event, this is certainly the intention. If you are uncomfortable with other types of bodies, this may not be the right space for you.
We live in a racially diverse world, and it is important that space dedicated to erotic pleasure and liberation reflect the ethnic and racial diversity of the world around us. Intimacy Academy aims for a community of attendees that is at least 50% Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color.
All events are grounded in consent and choice. We get to know one another, create a sacred container, build and strengthen intimacy together, and identify our boundaries so that we can relax, receive and give. When you choose to attend events, bring an open mind, curiosity, and playfulness.
A note about our F.E.E. structure (Fair Energy Exchange)...
Payment is a form of energy exchange: Money is a tangible symbol of the energy that you expend acquiring it. You in turn exchange money for the energy I give you during our work together. I want all workshops and playshops to be accessible to everybody, regardless of cost, BUT I must cover my expenses to keep this work sustainable.
Instead of a sliding scale model, you will always see 3-4 different payment tiers for Intimacy Academy events. I will not ask for any kind of proof of your financial situation, BUT I do ask that you do some honest reflection about your financial reality from the mindset of abundance and prosperity, and then choose the tier that meets your reality!
Payment tiers are named to reflect the amount of "green" you have access to. You will see detailed descriptions and amounts for each tier in event announcements.
