Calling all ecosexual educators! We are excited for you to share your teachings, practices, and tools of embodied earth-loving with participants of the EcoSex Convergence.
The EcoSex Convergence draws people who have a variety of backgrounds with ecosexuality, from those who recently have been introduced to the concept to those who have years of practice with permaculture, community-building, earth-based spiritualities, environmental-art, sacred sensuality and the many forms of earth-loving. True to its name, the EcoSex Convergence provides a space for these many aspects of ecosexuality to converge, evolve and inspire each other. The event is a closed container, starting with the opening ceremony and ending with the closing ceremony.
We ask that the workshops reflect the diversity of experiences and expressions of ecosexuality, that workshop facilitators offer teachings that stem from their own embodied life-experience and we encourage the development or deepening of original material specifically for this event.
What Kinds of Workshops We Are Looking For?
We are looking for experience-based workshops centered around the relationship between body, earth, community, sexuality, art or spirit. This may include ethnobotanical explorations, ecosexual storytelling or a song circle, earth/erotic sensory experiences, ecosomatics, earth-based skill building, ecosexual (performance) art , etc.
We are looking for workshops that will deepen participants’ understanding of themselves and their relationship to each other and the Earth, and workshops that will inspire and motivate participants to live and love passionately and courageously in the world. We would like participants to leave these workshops with visions and embodied knowledge of how to share the ecosexual experience with friends and loved-ones. Most of all, we want you to share your vision of the deeply grounded and life-affirming culture we are all birthing together.
In addition to the regular afternoon workshops, this year we are also accepting proposals for the evening programming (such as dance, cuddles and facilitated Temple activities), afternoon programming in Lilith's Forest, the consent workshop, and morning ecosomatic movement.
Workshop length: 2 hours (except for morning movement which is 45 minutes)
Due to the remote nature of the venue (we’ll be in the woods, yeah!), we cannot support PowerPoint presentations or other digital visuals. Audio can be available through portable music devices and speakers.
