In the video we share what ACTUALLY happens at the meet up, and what sacred sexuality and this meetup means to each of us as co-organizers. As of now we have not decided when we will be meeting again, and we would love to hear your ideas on what to explore when we do meet again. PLEASE SHARE YOUR IDEAS for sacred sexuality related meetup topics on our Discussion Forum, and share the video link with others who are curious about this group. Thank you, and lots of love to you!
This meetup is an opportunity to explore and understand ourselves and others. We provide events, workshops and experiences that guide us in embodying our potential for ecstatic living.
We don't just talk - we want you to experience something new and learn something about yourself each time you join us. We stay fully clothed. For some practices, we might touch one another, only with full consent. You can always opt out of a practice if you choose. We get asked if people have sex in our meet ups - NO. This is not a sex party, not that there is anything wrong with those, it is a safe space to learn more about yourself with cool people.
Asking for what you want. There is no better way of getting exactly what we need than asking for it. We spend a lot of time in this group learning how to ask for what we want. One of the main elements of safety is developing the skill of making a direct request.
Setting your limits. In this group we are always exploring new and interesting things. Some things might make you uncomfortable. Being able to say no to things you don't want is just as important as asking for what you want. This is also a key element to safety. Keep in mind it is not unkind to tell somebody "no."
Do not touch other members without permission. If you do, we will ban you from future events.
Discretion. Some members may not want their friends, family or co-workers knowing they attend this meetup. Do not out them. When you are out and about and you see somebody who you have seen at our meetup, just say "hello, I saw you at the meetup" not "the Sacred Sexuality meetup." This gives the person a chance to reply "yes, the Sacred Sexuality meetup" which opens the door for you to discuss what may have happened during the meetup. Or they can choose to reply "yes, the meetup" indicating that they do not want to discuss details about the meetup in front of their current company.
Openness. This is a place of complete honesty and non judgment. Please express yourself and your views. With the foundations of safety and discretion, we create a space where we can be free to express and explore any issue without fear of reprisal.
Punctuality. The doors are locked until almost 7pm for every meetup because we are setting the space. Doors open at 7pm. We have 15 minutes of meet and greet time which is a buffer for anybody who is running late. After 7:15pm, we lock the doors and we do not admit anyone after 7:15. This helps set a solid container with minimal interruptions to the organizers, presenters and you, the attendees.
Community. Safety, discretion, openness, punctuality and community are all pillars of the community we are building. We encourage you to be kind and love one another. We love all of you. We look forward to having fun and exploring sacred sexuality with you.
We have met on the 2nd Friday evening of the month. After our 'Rona pause, we are considering re-opening for Winter Solstice 2021!
Please share the link to this group. Meetup hides this group so nobody can find us on this platforms search engine! Which means we have become the BEST KEPT SECRET IN AUSTIN! :D Please help us spread the word by sharing the link.
