I receive emails all through the year from people telling me how this event has opened up and impacted positively on their whole life.
Today (with their permission of course) I am sharing with you what Anne, 2015 and 2016 attendee, sent me about what they experienced attending Celebrating Sexuality.
See you in November, Jo xx
Excited for this, my 3rd Celebrating Sexuality Festival, later this year. I'm making the trip to Melbourne especially for this — wouldn't miss it!
Basically it is 3 days of diving deep into the core of all you are made from (because after all, our sexual energy is one of the most powerful energies we have and it drives everything we do - it makes sense to want to learn more about this stuff). It is filled with over 30 workshops on differing topics around sexuality from rope play to bondage, to how to talk to children about sex, to communicating boundaries with lovers, to how to negotiate threesomes+, and so much more.
The site where it is held is lush, serene and as extravagant as you decide for it to be. The food is delicious, varied and healthy, with great coffee on hand. It is so incredibly well organised with each detail meticulously considered (thank you Jo Balmforth for your tireless energy and efforts in making Celebrating Sexuality the exemplary experience that it is).
I can't even begin to express how much personal growth I've had from the experiences I've had at 'Sex Camp'. Not only was it fun and informative, but the feeling of connection and open heartedness I felt by the end was unbelievable.
Truth be known, the first one confronted the crap out of me. It was so uncomfortable, yet I am forever grateful for the experience. Most of the workshops I attended were Tantra based (my first introduction to it and I haven't looked back since, with Celebrating Sexuality opening me up to a continued exploration of Tantra).
Those first workshops challenged my comfortability with my own sexuality and why I am the way I am around sexuality and nudity; why and who I am in relation to the masculine; that being witnessed scared the crap out of me and that I didn't have the capacity to allow for it in my life and relationships (what a huge block to uncover and later work on removing).
However it brought these things about me into the light and allowed me the opportunity to face myself head on and work on the stuff I wanted to change about myself over the next year and a half, until the next retreat came around.
The second one blew my mind on a whole other level. It allowed me to see how much I had grown through all the work I'd done and just how much my level of self love had evolved; that I had the capacity for attraction to the type of men I would like to attract in my life and not what I had previously been attracting & attracted to; that I wanted to have a full body Tantric orgasm (so I've sought that out since too & wow :o ); that there is so much more to Anal play than I had ever imagined; and, that I could be witnessed, own it & be totally comfortable in it (thanks to closing night's Dancing Eros event where 150+ of us witnessed one another in all our hot luciousness!)...
And I didn't have to take my clothes off and I didn't have to have sex with anyone ... although I absolutely could have if I'd wanted to as well. Celebrating Sexuality Festival is what you make of it and want it to be. And what I love about it, is that there's this uncanny energy surrounding the festival that gives you exactly what you need at that time — that pushes you to be or see what you need to at any given moment, and despite how comfortable or uncomfortable it may feel, I know that I'm being safely held in the presence of the organisers, facilitators, participants and whatever else it is that's bonding us and it all together.
If you've never been, I seriously recommend you check it out! It's a festival like no other - it'll push you to your edges, but it's the edges that give us our edge, right?
