When: Wednesday September 20th 7-8:30pm ET / 4-5:30pm PT

Where: Register to receive the zoom link

What: 

Sensuality is experiencing the world through your senses. It can be confusing trying to learn how to connect with your sensuality. It’s easy to get caught up in the rush of the day and forget to slow down and actually notice our senses mindfully. Feeling our sensuality can bring a lot of pleasure & joy to our lives.

In this WE Circle we are going talk about the difference between sexuality and sensuality, explore ways to ignite sensuality in you, and belly dance.

 


Don't miss this opportunity for nourishment. WE are stronger together.

The upcoming WE Circle will be ONLINE VIA ZOOM

When: Wednesday August 23rd 7-8:30pm ET / 4-5:30pm PT

Where: Register to receive the zoom link

What: In this WE Circle we are going to practice setting boundaries. In life we have at least 2 boundaries we need to set: with ourselves and with others. As women, it is imperative that we learn to set boundaries with our families, friends, co-workers, lovers, and the system for self-care. We will utilize conversation, journaling, and belly dancing as tools to identify what boundaries we are called to set and practice them.
THIS IS A CALL FOR ACTION, SISTERS!
Don't miss this opportunity for nourishment. WE are stronger together.

What: Pleasure is not only a sexual experience. Pleasure can be embodied spiritually, mentally, and physically. In this patriarchal society, often times pleasure is associated with shame and guilt. When was the last time you allowed yourself to indulge in pleasure? Sister, you do not need anyone else to experience pleasure. This is something that comes from within you!

LET'S DECOLONIZE PLEASURE TOGETHER IN COMMUNITY

 

In this WE Circle, we will explore the topic of PLEASURE through the senses and belly dancing. This is a safe space for women to self-express freely and to unite in sisterhood. Please wear comfortable clothes to move in.
