“Aphrodite’s Body is the archetype of the human body and also the body of the world” Thomas Moore in The Soul Of Sex
We Bee EcoSexy! One way to participate in the radical activism of EcoSexuality is to joyfully immerse yourself in Nature and the unseen but palpable worlds of non-humans.
Taste the golden ambrosias of The Melissae: Aphrodities’ working priestesses. Create your own waggle bee dance and hum together in a hive pile of other humans. Adventure into the forest around us and co-create a courtship altar with what you discover there. Make time to sense the multitude of non-human consciousness that surround us and lovingly connect with them. Trance to experience your blood ancestors and learn ways of honoring and elevating them. Teri & Benjamin share a fierce commitment to the living world; embracing erotic life force as an act of resistance to Empire. Join us in a three day pathwork experiment that moves us toward creating a culture worth living into.
EcoSexuality imagines the opportunity to design a human culture that can take care of, tend and dwell within the Cascadia Bioregion in a manner that confers respect to the deity Aphrodite, the land itself and the complex ecological web of human and non-human persons coexisting there.
Ecomagicks are a variety of ritual techniques and somatic “ways of being” that include poetry, song, trance, movement, and invocation. These techniques expand our capacity to experience phenomena that occur both outside our physical bodies in the real and palpable worlds of Nature (the bodies of Gaia) and inside our consciousness, altering our inner worlds of perception and imagination.
