Poly 101 @ online via Zoom
As recently as 10 or 15 years ago, the idea of Polyamory was still unfamiliar to a lot of people. Today, thanks to TV shows, movies and podcasts, practically everyone knows what Polyamory is now — or do they? In this interactive class, Gloria Jackson-Nefertiti will cover everything you always wanted to know about Polyamory (but were afraid to ask), through personal examples from her own life, as well as lives of her partners and friends. She’ll define terminology and acronyms. (What the heck is a “throuple,” anyway? And what does NRE stand for?) She’ll work with you to clear up misconceptions about Polyamory. (“Do all of you have to live together?” “Where does everyone sleep?” “Where do you find other Poly folks?”) She’ll provide you with helpful resources (lists of books, events, articles, podcasts). Most importantly, there will be plenty of opportunities for questions. (“What’s the difference between Polyamory and Open Relationships?” “How do you find partners?” “Your boyfriend is married? Does his wife know about you?”) Purchase Tickets Here! This is an online class via Zoom. You must purchase your ticket in advance. Ticket sales end at TIME on the day of the workshop.

She is also a breast cancer survivor. In fact, it was the cancer diagnosis in 2013 that caused her to realize how short life is; this served as the catalyst that caused her to come out, LOUD AND PROUD, as sex-positive, bisexual and polyamorous. She has practiced polyamory/non-monogamy since the late 1980s. She has spoken on bisexuality and polyamory in panels at high schools/colleges, and has sat in on polyamory/non-monogamy panels and panels of sexperts at the Center for Sex Positive Culture in Seattle. You can learn more about Gloria from the following article: “Life with Two Boyfriends: Inside a Polyamorous Relationship”, and you can find Gloria on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

We quickly found a bond in our shared view that men have gone missing, at least if they are naked, when it comes to mainstream art channels. I will trace my own journey and fascination with this new art form: women-identified photographers turning their gaze on the male body and some of my experiences in the field, on photo shoots and in the live gallery experience.” Stillion said. Artist Ann-Marie Stillion has worked as a journalist, writer, filmmaker and photographer. She taught design in San Francisco and built a contemporary gallery in Arizona in the nineties. In 2013, she began to concentrate on the nude, sexuality and is especially interested in male ideals of beauty, eroticism and meaning.

She lives in Seattle and maintains a studio in Building 30 in Magnuson Park. Currently, she is working on new film and print projects. Since 2013 she has concentrated on themes of sexuality and particularly the male figure through large scale photographic installation, film and print. She is interested in the imaginal body outside the confines of historical gender and social expectations. Sex in Space, The Female Gaze, Camera as a Lover and other Transformation of Love are portfolios she has created out of this exploration.

The Pleasure Practice @ online via Zoom
This Month’s Practice: Bottom Breathing Bottom Breathing offers practical skills for personal and collective pleasure in the pandemic and revolution. In this 2 hour workshop, we will connect to the grounding power and pleasure located in the anus/root chakra. Utilizing guided meditation, visualization, anal breathing techniques, humor and song, Bottom Breathing invites you to tune into your asshole, our shared Earthbody and each other. We begin with introductions and agreements creating a container where you are free to participate at your own pace. The guided part of our journey will last about one hour and leave 30 minutes at the end for savouring your experience and sharing with the group if you feel called to do so.

Questions may be directed to: [email protected] Why Pleasure? We honor Pleasure as resistance to apathy. Where trauma restricts, Pleasure opens. Attuning to the self healing power of pleasure as our birthright. A space to revitalize, listen to and attend to our own needs and desires; a place of self discovery. Pleasure as the source of sacred sweetness, we embrace the nectar of our own unfolding. Why solo? Our Pleasure is our own. Pleasure is an experience we cultivate from within. Why together? We practice in community to strengthen our sense of belonging, offer witness to each other and experience our interconnectedness in a brave, vulnerable and receptive space. We intend to create community that supports the unlearning of shame, dismantling of heteronorms and affirms queerness. We welcome all gender expressions. The Practice: Simple and profound. Each workshop offers a specific invitation to engage with pleasure and can be taken as a stand alone workshop while the series intends to build community. Each practice allows 15 minutes for arriving, 15 minutes for setting group agreements and intentions, an embodiment invitation and song leading into one hour of our special activity, and concluding with 30 minutes of savoring, mingling and imbibing something seasonal and delicious.
