The Wisdom of Our Wanting with Kai Cheng Thom [Free Workshop]

What is the secret and miraculous power of desire? What if your wanting could change the world?

Join Somatic Sex Educator Kai Cheng Thom for an embodied deep dive into the embodiment of desire. Together, we will explore the queer and BIPOC traditions of resistance and resilience that find their roots in the erotic web of relationship that binds us all to life. We will experiment with practices that can help us to light the inner flame of desire, and to undo the bonds of stigma and shame spun by the dominant colonial culture.

At the core of this workshop are the principles of pleasure activism, including the core belief that desire is an essential key to unlocking our collective freedom.

Participants are invited to bring materials for soul collage making: Paper, glue, and disposable magazines and newspapers.

If you would like to explore further - KAI CHENG THOM is in residency inside Rooted - and you can also join us for a 3 month stand alone course in EDGE PLAY - right here: [We Begin Feb 11th!]
