Finding Your Power in Chaos: Maneuvering in the Cultural Soup of Power In Which We Find Ourselves
Wed., Oct. 3., via Zoom.us, 60 mins
9 pm ET / 8 pm CT / 7 pm MT / 6 pm PT
We are living in unique times. Institutions are transforming, people are rising up in both words and actions, and the uncertainty of change is in the air.
Please join Austin Coordinator Andrés Cordero and Body Electric faculty member Dave Allen for a conversation about how you can stay true to your essence and weather the chaos around us. Bring all your emotions, observations, and curiosity, and hopefully you can take away some ideas about you can find and live in a place of power, with so much happening to make us fearful and shrink from our power.
Dave Allen, Life Coach, Embodiment Coach, and Body Electric School Facilitator will speak to the value of embodiment, the exploration of power, and the embracing of eros to find your way through and forward.
In addition to what we hope will be thought-provoking (and actionable) discussion, we will also share information about the upcoming residential workshop, Power, Surrender, and Intimacy for Men, scheduled for November 2-4, in Central Texas.
We especially welcome past participants of Power, Surrender, and Intimacy, to reconnect, re-energize, and reflect upon where you are in your journey.
Come join us for an evening in community as we begin the journey together into Power, Surrender, and Intimacy!

Power, Surrender, and Intimacy for Men: A Residential
Fri., Oct 2 to Sun., Oct. 4 (All Day)
Residential Retreat 50 mins from Austin, Texas
Fee: $845, includes workshop, meals, lodging for 2 nights
Spend an extended weekend in community with conscious, big-hearted men on a journey using the lens of S/M play to explore personal power, surrender, trust, and expanded self-awareness.
Join the Body Electric School at a retreat center in the Texas Hill Country for a weekend establishing connection, exploring intense body sensation and expressing intentional physicality. Exploring the dynamics of consciously surrendering power or holding that power for another man invites men to know how they can connect easily with their power as well as trust other men. Along with power exchange and erotic play, emphasis is placed on creating conscious intentions, learning how to know and ask for what you want, and practicing exquisite attention.
Included in the workshop fee are two nights lodging in shared accommodations, meals, and access to a 10-man hot tub and meditative grounds. Join us as we explore the connection between the divine energy of power and the human energy of surrender.

When it comes to sacred sexual expression:
- What health care options are available to help you establish and maintain your sexual health?
- How do you decide whether to disclose your sexual health, orientation, identity, and kink/preferences?
- How do you co-create safe and satisfying sexual interactions while “keeping it sexy?”
Join us for an evening of dialogue, small group discussions, and role play as we learn more about integrating healthy and affirming sexual behaviors in a sacred, self-honoring way.
Learn about options to help you remain HIV-, or to thrive if you happen to be living with HIV.
Ask those questions you’ve never had answered about sexually-transmitted infections,
and how to access services offered by providers at low or no-cost to you.
Explore considerations in deciding whether or not to disclose your gender identity, sexual orientation, sexual history, and even your kinks or fetishes, in a way that is respectful to you and your potential partners.
Explore different ways that people can co-create intimate and sexual interactions that can be fun, sexy, and honoring for everyone involved.
Our presenters for the evening are patient advocates and sexual health and sexuality educators at the Kind Clinic (www.kindclinic.org), one of the fastest growing sexual health and wellness clinics in Central Texas. The Kind Clinic offers free or low-cost services including access to Pre- and Post-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP and PEP), STI testing and treatment, Gender Care for the trans community, and HIV care for loved ones living with HIV.

Anal touch remains a taboo pleasure for many people. As the body’s elimination zone, we can view the anal sphincter as unclean, untouchable…and unlovable. Many of us have been surprised to discover the exquisite sensations anal stimulation can bring if we treat our bodies with sensitivity and care. In fact, anal sensuality is a key to unlocking erotic energy in new ways. Can we truly love our whole selves if we don’t love our holes?
Join us for an audio-only FREE teleconference as we hold a heart-centered conversation about the benefits and possibilities of exploring “the valley of delight” as a way to access erotic energy for healing and expansion. This is a program of the New Body Electric School.

Although AASECT Certified members do not practice hands-on touch in their work, many others do, and it's important for members to know about them! The 2019 AASECT Institute will feature multiple leaders in the fields of bodywork who will offer detailed information about their work, demonstrations of certain aspects of their work, benefits for clients and the ethical codes by which they live and practice.
If you have never been to an AASECT Institute, you're in for a treat! The venue is more intimate, the sessions are all plenary, and you have the opportunity to connect with presenters, network with colleagues and meet new friends.
The Institute will take place in New Orleans on November 1-3, 2019 in the French Quarter. For those who can travel a bit early, New Orleans is a great place to be on Halloween, and on the Day of the Dead! The Institute is open to 50 people, so register early! It is almost sure to sell out.
