A live, nude model is provided at each self-guided session.

Genea Morrow is a self-taught artist and creative entrepreneur residing in Seattle. Her interest in art began in 2012 but veered in the direction of modeling and photography; it came full circle in a figure drawing class in 2017. She then took the time to fall in love with creating shapes out of shadow work using charcoal as her medium. It wasn’t until 2021 that she started to play in paint. Genea began a fulfilling career co-owning a children’s educational toy store, J.I.L.L.’s Toyshop, and launching Black Omi Art Co. Though her journey wasn’t always easy, she often opens up about her struggles with imposter syndrome and how she continuously works on her insecurities surrounding her late start to paint. She now creates paintings that tell her story, a story heavily influenced by her history with religion and spirituality, overshadowed by her exploration of her sensuality. Her work is centered around creating the feeling of familiarity, power, and freedom. To highlight the internal battles of feminine and masculine energies women may feel.

May 11 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
SOLD OUT - Bondage for Beginners @ Gallery Erato
Interested in adding some bondage to your life but not sure where to start? This fun and accessible introductory class will introduce you to the basics of kink and rope bondage. By the time you’re done you’ll have all the skills you need to safely and confidently start exploring bondage on your own. This is a bondage class rather than a knots class, so our focus is on teaching a small number of versatile techniques that you can use in all kinds of ways. All the ties in the class are easy to learn and can be used for many different play styles. The point of bondage is to connect with your partner, so we’ll also cover fundamental kink concepts like consent, safewords, negotiation, and aftercare. To help you put it all together, we’ll have fun demos of the techniques in action, along with suggestions for how to figure out what kind of kink works best for you. Single students are welcome, but this class is most fun if you take it with a partner. We’ll provide practice rope if you don’t have your own. The 38 page color handout includes all the class material as well as additional ties to practice at home. Purchase tickets here!   COVID Protocols: Masks will be optional for this class. Important details: Scholarships are available for all Pan Eros Foundation workshops.

Hypnokink Enthusiast Group 1:00 pm
Hypnokink Enthusiast Group @ Gallery Erato
May 18 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Hypnokink Enthusiast Group @ Gallery Erato
Have you thought about including hypnosis in your kink or sex life? Hypnosis is infinitely adaptable. You can use it to enhance arousal and intimacy, do bondage without restraints, create ideal headspaces for all kinds of play, build mindf*ck scenes, strengthen Dom/sub training, increase relaxation for sensual scenes, and much more. You can use hypnotic storytelling to bridge the fantasy gap between what you are willing to do in real life and the hidden depths that lie in your internet browser history. Doors open for the Hypnokink Enthusiasts’ Group at 1pm, and we start our programming at 1:15pm with introductions and a very quick introductory review of the terms and principles of hypnosis before we head into meatier topics. For details on the theme of one of our meetings, you can visit the Seattle Hypnokink Enthusiasts FetLife group at https://fetlife.com/groups/53446 or email [email protected]

Sensual Yoga @ Gallery Erato
May 22 @ 7:00 pm – 8:15 pm
Sensual Yoga @ Gallery Erato
Sensual yoga is closest to gentle or yin yoga for our asanas/poses, but we’ll add a sensual layer on top in how we guide ourselves to connect to our body.  This class is welcome to those who have never done yoga before as our asanas/poses will either be beginner or have beginner-friendly variations and for experienced yogis who would like to explore your practice through this new lens. Please bring a water bottle, yoga mat, and pillow; blocks optional. A note on clothing: anything you feel good and confident moving in, whether that’s typical yoga/workout wear to lingerie). A note on yoga:  Yoga is an ancient spiritual practice originating in the Indian subcontinent and means ‘to yoke’ or to bring together the body, mind, and spirit.  When offering and practicing, we acknowledge we are interpreting and changing this practice from our Western perspective.  Out of respect of this origin, educator payment will be donated to Bharati Yogadhama, an Indian organization dedicated to preserving Indian culture, knowledge, and sciences.   Purchase tickets here!   Important Information: Pay-what-you-can scholarships are available for all Pan Eros Foundation workshops. If you need financial assistance, please email Leah at [email protected] No late entry will be allowed due to the intimate nature of this workshop.

A Casual Introduction to Erotic Hypnosis @ Gallery Erato
May 25 @ 11:30 am – 4:00 pm
A Casual Introduction to Erotic Hypnosis @ Gallery Erato
Erotic hypnosis is a marvelous engine for intimacy and erotic imagineering. Hypnotic trance state is a delicious altered state all by itself, but when we stir in suggestion and storytelling we uncover an internal universe that seems limitless. This class will serve as a guide through the first steps in your erotic hypnosis journey and will cover the myriad consent issues, safety, hypnotic induction and will begin to cover applications of hypnosis to our erotic lives. Daniel and Ben have crafted this class to be a blend of theory and practice. There will be a small bit of group work (so come prepared to take a little trip into a trance-y headspace), but mostly the practical exercises will be paired.  Optimally, you’ll bring a partner to this event.  If not, we will do our best to make sure everybody is paired with someone. Purchase tickets here! Important information: No late entry will be allowed due to the intimate nature of this workshop. Doors will be locked at 10 minutes after the start time. Water available. Please bring your own cup or bottle. Open to all 18+ Attendance is limited to 24 people. All sexes, genders, races, ethnicities, bodies, body types, sexual orientations, relationship orientations, abilities welcome and celebrated. Questions may be directed to: [email protected] Scholarships available. Please let us know by email if you have any access needs or things that would aid in your learning.

They are a kink performer, educator and enthusiast.  They have been facilitating Pan Eros Foundation’s Hypnokink Enthusiasts Group (HEG) for about a year now.  They have also taught hypnosis for Seattle Leather Service Corps., Hypnocon and Rope Burn.  They are working toward creating a 501(c)7 non-profit social club called Trance Pacific, which will be a queer erotic hypnosis group intended to give queer folks in the Pacific Northwest a safe, sexy space for their erotic hypnosis adventures – and, very importantly, to bring erotic hypnosis to underserved communities. Trance Pacific is currently seeking members for its board of directors. Daniel lives in Tacoma with their husband Craig – and is partnered to Ben, also of Tacoma, who contributes considerably to this class.
