CHANT YOUR HEART OPEN!
"Chant Your Heart Open!" is a warmly embracing and participatory sound experience that offers healing songs and melodic mantras to open your heart and enliven your spirit. It's for everyone!
Led by Wendy DeMos on vocals and guitar, her songs are deeply spiritual, celebrate life, and support the body and heart to go within.
“By repeating the mantras and uplifting lyrics, we increase their power,” she says. "When we express our souls with these sounds, we tune into specific frequencies of consciousness — like a radio tuning into different stations — and we vibrate at the frequency of love."
Chant Your Heart Open gatherings support community, healing, compassion, and joy, dedicated not only to our own uplifting, but to healing Mother Earth and to our larger human family.
CHANT YOUR HEART OPEN! 3:50 pm & 8:45 pm
Vireo is here to inspire women (and their partners and families) to live a more turned on, orgasmic, blissful, and ecstatic life.
"I love when women feel and live more connected to their sacred sensual and sexual sovereign selves," she says. "This is how we will have peace and heaven on earth, one sovereign being and solo orgasm at a time.
Vireo teaches ancient Taoist Tantric secrets including sexual reflexology and why your sexual health is key to the health of your vital organs and your overall well being and longevity.
Plus, through Belief Re-patterning® she uncovers old beliefs that no longer serve you around your sexuality and that block your ability to experience deep pleasure, bliss and ecstasy.
The Dalai Lama said that Western women would change the world. Vireo adds, "Sexually satisfied multi orgasmic sovereign women will change the world."
Vireo is often called “The Shame Buster”.
SHAME BUSTING! 7:45 pm
Sheryl integrates massage, craniosacral, lymphatic breast massage, the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy, Holistic Pelvic Care (internal vaginal work), and shamanic practices and with these skills focuses on pelvic health and integrated sexuality.
Sheryl says that listening to the body’s subtle cues and weaving modalities together yields profound levels of relaxation and healing.
"Our physical state is profoundly affected by our emotions, mental overwhelm, our disconnect from ourselves, community, nature, and our purpose," she explains. "We rarely consider the impact of these imbalances, especially as it ripples out into our sexuality."
Integrated sexuality work is where Sheryl Watson has done her most profound personal healing and it is this aspect of her integrated work that gives her the most joy and professional fulfillment.
HOW IMPORTANT IS PELVIC FLOOR STRENGTH? 4:45 pm
M. JANE COLETTE
M. Jane writes tragedy for those who like to laugh, comedy for the melancholy, and erotica for lovers who like their fantasies real.
She believes rules and hearts were made to be broken—ditto the constraints of genres.
Her novels include Tell Me, Consequences (of defensive adultery), the award-winning rom-com Cherry Pie Cure, and Text Me, Cupid, a (slightly dirty) love story for 21st century adults who don’t believe in love... but want it anyway.
Don't miss Jane's dynamic workshop, "Seducing Your Inner Muse: How to use dirty writing exercise (and sexting) to find your way to true love and surrender."
Find her at mjanecolette.com.
SEDUCING YOUR INNER MUSE 2:50 pm
REV. YVONNE RACINE
Rev. Yvonne is an ordained Unity minister, a Holistic Coach, and a Grief Recovery Specialist.
She has been deeply involved in personal and spiritual development for 30 years and has explored relationship, sexuality, and spirituality extensively.
Yvonne’s focus as a Holistic Coach is in changing our relationship with ourselves so that we can be more fully engaged in life.
"I've come to realize the depth of connection between our sexuality and spirituality," she says, "and I've done a great deal of healing work to mend the rift."
SEXUALITY & SPIRITUALITY 12:40 pm
Jack's been a millionaire, a pauper, and through it all he's been a cheeky spiritual explorer.
Most importantly, however, he’s a man and he says that’s all we need to know to appreciate his perspectives on men and their penis.
You’ll understand men just a bit better than you did before his talk.
JOIN A MEN'S GROUP! 7:30 pm
