I loved how each of the experts explained in their own
way that community does not have to be just where
you are, it’s as close as the telephone, or attending a
conference.  Also that community does not have to be an
energy/sex healers exchange. It can just be a circle or potluck.
The exchange is ongoing whenever “healers” are in close proximity. ~Monique, Utah

Feeling alone in your spirituality and practice? Perhaps you’re the only person you know in your town or city who’s diving deep into the waters of sacred sexuality work as teacher/educator and you’re fatigued by trailblazing solo? Maybe you’re a successful community leader who’s built a thriving network of students and seekers, but there’s no one that you feel safe turning to when you need to “not be on?”

On the path of Sacred Sexuality, much of our work is done in the “interior world.” But there does come a time when many of us reach a point where we’ve gone as far as we’re going to go alone, or even with a partner. This is the time when community support is most vital to deepen our practice and catapult us into the next phase of our growth.

However, for those of us who are community leaders, it can sometimes be tricky taking off the “mentor hat” and letting our community support our own growth, and, in some instances, it’s actually not appropriate. It can feel unsafe,  which makes diving in more difficult. And, then, not all students are in a place to hold space for us as we go through our shadow work as we peel off the next layer and dive deeper. And it is rare, a community that has gathered around a teacher that can give all of the kinds of witnessing needed to nourish and sustain ourselves.

When we grow malnourished as teachers and reach a state of depletion because we have needs that are not being met, the very source of our joy -giving of ourselves in service of helping people- becomes dangerously low and our ability to give unselfishly becomes compromised…

Sound familiar? If not you, perhaps you know a teacher or guru or educator who’s gone through this cycle or is in it now… Well, the good news is this: It doesn’t have to be this way!

Join world renowned sex and relationship educator Reid Mihalko along with Baba Dez Nichols, founder of the International School for the Temple Arts, and the Sacred Sexuality experts of this October’s East Coast Daka-Dakini Conference for “Community as a Spiritual Practice,” a teleconference discussion on the use of experiential and collaborative learning and peer community gathering to nourish and replenish ourselves as practitioners and healers!

In this quick but powerful 75-minute teleconference, you will discover…

  • The differences between community support and peer support
  • What is Peermanship and why we as teachers and seekers for our own growth need it
  • How experiential learning as a peer group and networking your peers can be more than just a “good business move” and how can it feed, nourish and sustain your wellbeing
  • Why “taking a vacation” isn’t all that you need to stay vibrant as a healer!
  • The personal stories from successful Sacred Sexuality Teachers and Communities Leaders on how they nourish themselves and their own practices
  • Resources, conferences, and websites you can access to source getting your own needs met!

Spread the word and invite your friends to join us on this call as we explore the value of experiential and collaborative learning, and discuss the importance of community and peermanship as two of the most overlooked and undervalued tools we can give ourselves as teachers, leaders, and practitioners in the digital age. Listen in and ask questions as we come together. Begin creating alliances, raising consciousness, and cultivating professionalism with us in this call.
