Embodied Consent Workshop at the Wicked Women Conference

I am pleased to announce that I will once again be giving a class at Bound in Boston’s Wicked Women event this year, over the Columbus Day weekend in October. This will be a revival and revision of the class I did last year with Sam at Safety Beyond Safewords, but I’ll be doing itContinue reading “Embodied Consent Workshop at the Wicked Women Conference”

More awesome body-mind connection techniques at the Mind Your Body Expo

Yesterday I had the opportunity to go to an exhibition of dozens of workshop presenters and vendors on more holistic approaches to health at the Natural Awakenings Mind-Body Event. Amid some things that admittedly felt quite woo-woo, I found some really great practitioners and doctors doing work in ways that align with what I’m seeingContinue reading “More awesome body-mind connection techniques at the Mind Your Body Expo”

Giving talks is fun, and meeting new people is awesome!

I gave my talk, along with Sam of the fabulous Beyond Safewords. (Her post about the event is here.) Samantha and I are hoping to give this talk again in the near future, at other kink events, and I am looking to develop other talks as well on the topics of self-care, consent, safe andContinue reading “Giving talks is fun, and meeting new people is awesome!”

Thanksgiving week: How gratitude can change your life

It’s Thanksgiving this week. The holiday has always been a favorite for me, and not just because I love to eat. I also love the thoroughly secular opportunity that it gives Americans to express gratitude. Gratitude is an emotion that we’re not in contact with a lot of the time. Life is hard, and evenContinue reading “Thanksgiving week: How gratitude can change your life”

Cuddling FTW

The research on touch continues to mount.  Fact is, the more loving touch you get, the healthier you are. I’m going out of town tomorrow for a week with a couple of loved ones, to visit one of my favorite cities in the world and then to attend a conference about magic, pagan spirituality, andContinue reading “Cuddling FTW”

On the Solstice, contemplating the concept of faith

Today is the Winter Solstice – the shortest day, and the longest night, of the year.  Mayan Calendar nonsense notwithstanding, pagans tend to celebrate this night as Yule, the time when the old sun dies and is reborn anew.  We stay up all night, tending candles and fires, carrying the light through the long dark. Continue reading “On the Solstice, contemplating the concept of faith”
