FLIRTING... Is it a skill? Is it manipulation? Is it play? An art form? A tool to turn on the fires with someone new, or to keep them burning after years of being together... or a skill of igniting and growing the spark between 2 (or more;) people and making it into a bonfire... for a night or for a life time..
This meetup with psychotherapist Meriana Dinkova and Love Coach Maya Diamond , will be a joint event hosted by Sex Magic Sf, Women's Coaching Group, and Cupid Talks meetup groups. ... so you’re guaranteed to meet a brand new cast of participants on what promises to be an extra special evening with “zing”!
Price - $20 on Meetup until July 27th; $25 after; $25-35 sliding scale at the door
If you ever...
-Find yourself in 'friendly', platonic discussions instead of spicy, exciting interactions...
-Struggle to fully and unapologetically express your desire... especially towards the one's you are most drawn to..
-Shy away from turning a connection from platonic to romantic or sexual...
- Find that you are loosing the erotic spark in a long term relationship and want to learn ways to bring it back...
Then you’ll be excited to delve deeper into the topic of Flirting!
In this evening, we’ll explore:
-YOUR relationship to FLIRTING: Scared? Distrustful? Excited, but not sure how to do it? .. or, on the other end of the spectrum, not knowing how to 'turn it off'? Good at one way of seducing, but curious to broaden your skill set?
-The most common “Flirting Types” -- you’ll find out which one YOU tend to be... and which one's you can learn from...
-“Flirting Yoga” -- NEW Ways of interacting to s-t-r-e-t-c-h your edges on this edgy topic...

What participants are saying about previous Sex Magic Meetups:
“ Excellent! Ali and Meriana are experienced, skillful, delightful, and playful. They created and held a safe space for me to experience and explore. I felt safe. Many somatic processes are intentionally established. Big deal for me, since personally I don't value the teaching from the "head".
“ It was a lot of fun! I'm learning a lot from meeting people of different walks of life. Loved the game! ”
“ A fascinating look into sexual energy (and energy in general). Meriana's honesty about herself was not only touching but created a comfortable environment for listening and sharing. ”
“ Oh listen, I keep unfolding wonderful thoughts about my experience of opening up, sharing, and encountering people willing to share confusions and fears about meeting the opposite sex , and exploring the energy between people and my own identity as a sexual being. The leaders were supportive, and gave interesting departure points from which to explore our sensitivity and archetypes and paradigms. They encouraged everyone and showed us how to begin. I feel a new world of self- understanding and self-questioning can be opened up by participating in this workshop. Lets continue! ”
"Great workshop with enthusiastic hosts and positive energy. Meriana is excellent at helping people quickly see their "edge" or where they are engaging in behavior that is limiting themselves from the relationships that they might otherwise enjoy. I hope to attend additional workshops organized by Meriana and/or her co-facilitators!"
