Dianna is a writer and teacher. Recent years have offered some intense learning opportunities, including physical and emotional trials; every one has shown her how to give more to others. This is Dianna’s 12th Beltane festival, and she appreciates every opportunity to give back to the community that is her home. Meanwhile, she is enjoying living out her superhero name: “Orgasma Girl.”
Sexual Healing: Sex is a beautiful expression of love and connection, a physical celebration and honoring of the gods. Still, we pagans carry scars; we are not immune to trauma, and trauma can come anytime—from an accident, an illness, surgery, the death of a loved one, or abuse. No one expects great sex in the midst of trauma, but we do expect things to get back to normal. What if they don’t? Even when trauma is over, we may find our sexuality has changed. Instead of the joyful, pleasurable, fun activity we are used to, sex might feel like just another problem. It doesn’t have to be that way!
In this class, we’ll address a variety of questions connected to the post-trauma sexuality issue, including: What is considered normal? What are the typical effects of trauma? What negative factors are affecting me? How do I deal with emotional blocks? What if I have no sex drive? What if sex creates more stress than it heals? What if I physically cannot do what I am used to? How do I deal with sex being different? What is the role of spirituality? To sum up, how can I use touch and sexuality to help me recover?
This class will include both the presentation of information and opportunities for people to share. In the first half, we will focus on background and emotional issues, and in the second, we’ll concentrate on the physical. In addition, a workbook will be available for a small fee ($5); the workbook will include all class notes as well as providing space for thoughts and journaling. You’ll need a pen and paper for notes if you don’t want a workbook.
This class is designed for people in recovery from trauma and their partners, although any person is certainly welcome to attend alone and will benefit. Bring with you a pen. A notebook if attendee does not want to buy workbook.
Bringing the Festival Home: We’ve all experienced it: post-festival crash. Think about it. When you’re actually at Beltaine, you’re surrounded by sex-positive people in a safe and welcoming environment. Folks are having sex everywhere and everywhen, and ideally, you are having some happy sexual times yourself. You think, “This is wonderful. I want to take this feeling home with me” – and you resolve, this time, to really do it. But then you get back home, and you dive right back into the same old crazy rush of obligations: work, family, errands, chores. For a few days, you feel disjointed and out of place – and the next thing you know, festival is just a distant memory.
Now, here you are once more – or maybe this is your first Beltaine – and you’re enjoying the days, loving the way you feel here. Maybe you’ve promised yourself that this time, it’ll be different. But what will happen when you get home?
In this class, you can learn some specific ideas – activities, projects, writing “assignments,” short meditations, and three-breath refreshers – that you can use to bring Beltaine home with you. Join us to learn how to bring the magic of Beltaine into your every day.
This class is designed for individuals or partners. Any number of partners may attend together. Bring with you a pen and notebook.
Energy Orgasms – No Genital Touching Required: "Want to have powerful orgasms without even touching your genitals? Want to orgasm more often – say, thirty times a session? Your teacher, Dianna, can – and you can, too!
In this class, learn how to orgasm more often and more powerfully by focusing your breath and your energy. Even better, learn how to orgasm almost any time you want to – including fully clothed and without typical genital stimulation. How? By breathing, thinking, pressing, nipping, pulling hair, restricting movement … almost anything! You can find new erogenous zones, intensify sexual energy, and become more orgasmic.
This class will include the presentation of information and opportunities for people to share their own wisdom, as well as demonstrations of different techniques and opportunities to do the work itself.
