• Oakland: Sacred Kink Immersion

    Iron Giant Loft

    This event weaves together modern Tantra and kink in a safe, structured environment. It begins as a guided experiential workshop incorporating sensuality, kink, and ritual, and transitions into a facilitated play party. This space welcomes all genders and orientations and is consent-focused. You always have the ability to set limits and negotiate the touch you give/receive. This event is appropriate for both new explorers and current practitioners. Experience exquisite surrender... the thrum of power and energy coursing through you as you take someone (or are taken!) right up to the edge... the dance of pleasure and sensation, dominance and submission, primal passion and divine union. Nudity, sensual, and sexual touch are optional at this event—but if you'd like to play in that playground, you can explore those options with one or more partners. (All touch is negotiated between participants.) We’ll demonstrate how BDSM can help you create powerful, connective experiences of sacred sexuality, and how NeoTantric principles and practices can take your kinky encounters to new heights. WHAT TO EXPECT We'll begin with powerful boundary-setting practices to create a safe container of conscious communication and sacred intent, so that you can truly surrender to your inner sense of play, reverence, and wonder. Then, you will go on a journey of power and sensuality, through the heart of connection culminating in a state of ecstatic bliss. Alex and Liam will be leading you through paired and triad exercises such as erotic feeding, sensation play, touching for YOUR pleasure, sound bath, tease and denial… and so much more. We'll explore: * Breathwork * Waking up the energetic body through the meridians and directed chakra touch * Using impact play and other rhythmic, intense forms of stimulation to achieve trance states * Energetic sex * Erotic ritual body worship * How aftercare changes when you combine kink and NeoTantra * Sensory deprivation ...and other forms of sensation and power play. Discover how empowering it can be to really ask (or beg!) for exactly the touch you would like. Experience the powerful, sacred gift of surrender—and of holding another’s complete trust. You'll have the opportunity to explore many configurations throughout the event. You can stay with the same partner(s) or mingle as you like. This event is open to all genders and orientations. If you prefer to be touched only by partners of a specific gender, you can bring a partner of that gender with you and stay with them for any or all of the exercises. * Wear clothes you can move in; fetish attire is welcome, as long as you're discreetly attired as you enter and exit * Please come fragrance free * Bring your favorite toys/gear to add to your experience during the free play time toward the end of the event * Non-alcoholic drinks only (kombucha ok). No substances, please; we want everyone to be fully present and capable of connection * We'll have safer sex supplies available, but feel free to bring your own Doors open at 12:00. Doors CLOSE at 12:30 PM to create a sacred container where we are all on the same page. There is no admittance after doors are locked. This event is a mind-, body-, and heart-blowing experience honoring the divinity within us by simply bringing our senses into action. All genders, bodies, races, and orientations welcome. 18+. Come as you are and have a great time! LOCATION BART accessible; free on-street parking. Spacious, private live/work loft in a residential building.

  • Oakland — Stop Falling for Unavailable People: Mindfulness & Attachment Styles

    Stop Falling for Unavailable People: Mindfulness and Attachment Styles Do you feel like * you always fall for unavailable people? * the people you’re attracted to never like you as much as you like them? * your needs for intimacy scare people away? * you freak out when your partner is with someone else? * you feel abandoned when your partner doesn’t text you back? * your partners don’t care as much about you as you care about them? Or, do you feel like * you freak out when someone gets too close to you? * you want relationships but always feel hemmed in? * your partners have radically different relationship expectations than you? * you prefer to keep your innermost feelings to yourself? * you can’t trust anybody? * your partners don’t meet your standards? * you value freedom and independence above all else? * when you get triggered, you isolate and have trouble reaching out for support? Perhaps you can relate to both. The good news is that there's nothing wrong with you, and you can change! Awareness is the first step. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to recognize your attachment patterns so that you'll know what you need to work on and take steps to get out of your own way. You'll also learn mindfulness skills that can help you reduce reactivity, question the limiting stories you tell yourself about your life and relationships, and feel more at ease in your relationships and in your sex life. This workshop is for everyone, but it’s also sex-positive, poly-positive, kink-positive, and inclusive of queer and trans perspectives. (Your facilitator, Liam Marcus, is queer and trans masculine.) If you’re tired of falling for unavailable people, register for this workshop.

ABOUT LIAM MARCUS I'm a relationship, sex, and intimacy coach, and I’ve explored the intersections of meditation, mindfulness, and relationships for over 20 years. I was drawn to meditation for the purpose of spiritual awakening, but over time, it has also helped me overcome a number of painful patterns in relationships. Since my training with IPSA in 1999, I’ve practiced surrogate partner therapy and helped hundreds of clients heal their attachment wounds and have more fulfilling relationships and sex lives. I’ve practiced and studied meditation in Buddhist Vipassana and Vajrayana traditions. In my other life, I have a Ph.D. in the humanities from U.C. Berkeley and have authored or coauthored five nonfiction books. I’m available for both individual and couples coaching sessions anywhere via phone or video call and face-to-face in the DC area.

Our biggest request is that you come with a fun-loving, warm, caring, open-minded, generous, thoughtful, compassionate, non-judgmental attitude and that you conduct yourself with the highest level of integrity possible. This will be a very chill, fun, playful event where sex and nudity will most likely occur. Come relax. Come sip a glass of something or a cup of tea. Come smooch. Come play. Come watch. (You know us: voyeurism is participation!) There is a small cat in the home we're holding this in.
