Some of my friends have asked, "What's the real story behind the punchline?"
It's a worthy question. Women's sexuality all on its own is a familiar taboo- but women, sex, and our relationship to entheogens is truly an unspoken story.
Let's break the ice!
This June, I'm going to a one-of-a-kind weekend gathering called SheShamans, and I want all my girlfriends on this blog to come too.
For my part, I'm doing a workshop on sexuality and the erotic from our first-hand altered experiences. How have menarche, motherhood, or menopause affected our relationship to "drugs and sex"?
I'm using all the quotation marks because the topic is so loaded. One person's perfect crystal psychedelic moment is another person's bottomless pit. But there's everything in between, too.
This isn't going to be a rah-rah session— I have more to learn than I have to say. I'll lead a workshop and discussion about the female side of the altered erotic experience, and what I'm looking forward to is the candor, insight, and generousity that I've seen already with so many women I met at the Sacred Elixirs conference a few months ago.
The SheShamans weekend is bringing together some incredible women, and I hope you'll be sorely tempted to be part of it!
We have April to "sell tickets." and see if we can pull it off. It's happening in Mendocino County, in Northern California, and your admission pays for lodging at a beautiful retreat center, meals, and all the workshops and fun we're planning.
If you wanna go, register now on the web page, don't sit around. We have until the end of April to make the down payment on the retreat center, and it would be good to breathe a sigh of relief-- and pleasure, that we can look forward to such a sweet occasion.
