Good in Bed/Good in Birth: Science and Celebration of Oxytocin

Samantha ZipporahSunday, June 1st — 7:30 p.m. — $15

Did you know the act of giving birth naturally is the height of the human body’s ability to release ecstasy inducing levels of the “love hormone” oxytocin? Orgasm is a step below birth on the spectrum of human experiences that release this amazing hormone. The step below orgasm is nipple stimulation.

The environmental, emotional, and physical factors that create the circumstances in which a person can surrender their ego and intellectual identity to enjoy an ecstatic orgasm also facilitate ecstatic empowered natural birth. The release of intellectual and ego identity, feelings of safety, intimacy, and surrender are crucial to healthy and complete release of oxytocin. Relaxation, rhythm, and ritual all help stimulate it as well.

In this workshop, full spectrum doula and sensualist Samantha Zipporah will offer a lecture and experiential exercises exploring the human mind, body, and spirit during the release of oxytocin. Her intention is to empower not just birthing folks, but any person who is seeking to understand the physiology of intimacy, connection, and ecstatic embodiment. Participants will leave with practical tips to support oxytocin release throughout the human experience, including but not limited to birth and sexuality.

Samantha Zipporah supports people through a full spectrum of experiences with sexual health and fertility as a full spectrum doula, revel rouser, and ovulation awareness aficionado. She has been attending birth since 2006, and studied midwifery with luminary Elizabeth Davis who literally wrote the book on Orgasmic Birth. She spent years as a peer mediator, sex-educator, and patient advocate at Planned Parenthood, and in 2011 created The Happy Hysteria Health Collective. In her work she hopes to inspire reverence and respect for the sacred cycles of nature within the human body, and believes the practical is radical: we can empower ourselves through education, discovery, and manifesting our own unique experience as sexual creatures.

Erotic Breathwork

Mkali-HashikiSunday, March 30th — 7:30 p.m. — $20

Breath is an anchor, a vehicle, a springboard. Breath connects us deeply to those around us, and erotic breathwork is a way to raise and circulate sexual energy. In this workshop, you will learn fundamental breathing techniques that will not only increase your connection to your own erotic power, but allow you to more easily share erotic energy with others. Participants will be doing a series of guided breathing exercises, individually and with class partners. This will be a lively and interactive class; this work is fun and energizing.

Participants are asked to wear comfortable clothing and to bring water. Although erotic breathwork can be used during physical intimacy, this is not a sexual techniques class — there is no nudity or sexual interaction/touching involved.

Mkali-Hashiki has facilitated and co-facilitated numerous workshops and panels on sexuality and politics across the country: at clinics, festivals, conferences, and universities. Her essays on various aspects of sexuality have been published in ‘zines, feminist journals, and popular anthologies. Hashiki believes that we are all entitled to have passion in our lives, and to understand how being connected to our passion and creativity enhances our lives and the lives of those around us. She has personal experience with polyamory, nonmonogamy, BDSM, and achieving sexual mystical states. It is her fierce passion for a happy, healthy, world that compels her to do this work.

Partners in Passion: Becoming More Than Soul Mates

Mark A. Michaels and Patricia JohnsonWednesday, March 12th — 7:30 p.m. — $20

Great sex and lasting relationships are mutual undertakings that are nurtured by selflessness, the deliberate cultivation of what we call profound interest in one’s partner, a determination to be as kind as possible, even during difficult times, and a recognition that, while openness and honesty are important, discernment about when and how to be open and honest is equally important. Verbal communication plays a major role in developing the capacity to relate in this way; however, nonverbal skills are even more important.

In this workshop, Mark A. Michaels and Patricia Johnson will explore an approach to love and sex that differs dramatically from beliefs that are current both in popular culture and in much of the therapeutic community and provide you with both a theoretical perspective and practical tools for inventing or reinventing your relationship as a collaboration, a joint venture.

Authors Mark A. Michaels and Patricia Johnson have devoted their lives to studying and teaching the art of creating intimacy and to showing couples how to maintain and sustain exciting relationships. “Partners in Passion” themselves, they are critically acclaimed collaborators as well as respected and highly sought after teachers who have traveled the world sharing their insights, knowledge, and secrets — helping thousands of people to create enduring and satisfying relationships.
