The Sacred Sexuality of Life’s Movement

Saturday, June 6, 2020  |  7:00 PM – 9:00 PM | 120 person capacity

The sacredness of sexuality encompasses all aspects of ourselves and our life cycles. Some of the ways that we express our sexuality are inherent in how we relate to self, partners, friends and loved ones. Birth, growth, dissolvement and death are all parts of the sacred. Sexuality, as the life force, can be mapped on top of these cycles as an overarching energy. We will come together to connect and explore tantric techniques, movement and other sacred sexuality practices. This interactive and fun workshop will offer participants the opportunity for general intimacy through breath work, drumming, body movement, energy practices, and more. This event includes offerings of non-sexual touch. All exercises are optional and can be modified for multiple ability levels.

Serina Payan Hazelwood is many things – but ordinary, she is not. With Indigenous Latina and Western European roots, Serina finds herself in the liminal – in terms of ethnicity, age, sexuality, and gender. She is a rainmaker and community builder. This Arizona native combines movement, breath, and meditation to harvest a somatic rush of our essential nature: Peace, happiness, and bliss. As a professional drum circle facilitator/leader, Serina uses vibration with breath, movement, and intention to bring about community in a way that is uncommon – attracting humans that would not otherwise find themselves in the same circle, let alone creating together. As a Master Yoga Teacher specializing in tantra and personal empowerment, she is able to bring us face to face with self, in an effort to understand ourselves and why we are here. Serina is a certified Holistic Sex Educator with the Institute for Sexuality Education and Enlightenment.
