3WayKisses from Gaia – Summer & Fall Calendar in the Arts of Loving
Hi lovely Earthlings!
Gaia sends 3WayKisses and warm wishes to all of you! Happy spring, summer, and fall seasons!
In the midst of planetary transformation, we have been navigating the shift on multiple helms. The ecosexual movement is picking up steam, and we are honored to be part of it. Let’s treat Gaia like a lover, hostess, mother, we respect and revere!
Teaching students about the arts of loving as practiced in the early modern and modern period has been a joy rewarded with the good fortune to complete the academic year. Veronica Franco and Giacomo Casanova are always big hits. This year we also got in Ntozake Shange and bell hooks! Remembering BiReCon and orchestrating BiTopia, the volume that collects its proceedings, has been another reward for yours truly. Bi is “kewl”! Bi Social Network interviews. Listen here, click April 20. We wish many more bi conferences in the future and were asked to celebrate 10 years of bisexuality with an occasional piece. What recognition!
Gaia’s Shore, Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico
Defending human rights and and shoring the assault on the public sector in Puerto Rico has been a priority as our university bleeds some of its best and most qualified people. Aprum and its allies have been helpful in supporting this. With our livelihoods under assault, we’ve been keenly aware of how ugly greed looks when it’s desperate with fear. Meanwhile Gaia tends its shores with the sweet waves of the Caribbean. The oceans have not inundated beach communities, and the dry season has been unusually cool. Gaia’s patience is admirable in the context of human ingratitude. Fukushima’s radiation sears complex organisms with the Petkau effect that stores toxicity in our tissues. Perhaps Gaia is waiting for ecosexuals to soar and teach the arts of loving that can shift planetary consciousness to manifest an energy field that can heal nature from human abuse.
Annie and Beth
The summer and fall calendars have now firmed up with a series of events devoted to the arts of loving consciously and inclusively as an ecosexual path to world peace, joy, health, and well being. Are we going to succeed? Time will tell, and in the meanwhile, let’s bet on our own duly acquired, time-tested wisdom. Read what Modern Love Muse thinks!
Gilf Gaia Extraordinaire
The first event is approaching soon. Ecosexual Unite for an Ecosex Symposium & Art Exhibit, says the press release. Coming up on June 17-19! Ecosex artists extraordinaire Annie Sprinkle and Beth Stephens produce at the new Center for Sex and Culture in San Francisco. What an honor to be invited to speak! Ecosex Symposium II & Art Exhibit is where art meets theory meets practice meets activism. What synergy could be more complete? Yours truly with her new persona, Gaia Gilf will be reading from the preamble of her new book, What’s Ecosexual Love? (G is for grandma–or nonna, as they say in Italy–because Gaia, the third planet, is old enough to be a wise and seasoned teacher in the arts of love too.) Interpreting love as an art is key to a culture’s ability to generate inventiveness, joy, creativity, and wisdom. Ecosexual love is what cures nature from human abuse. The ecosexual movement is the tidal force of that cure. Time to join in! Don’t miss a beat: The symposium is up and seats are limited. Get yours for only $ 35! For ecoliscious lunch add $ 15.

Fakistra beach, Greece
Next in line is yours truly’s trip to Kalikalos, Greece, the holistic community that hosted her seminars on “Gaia and Amorous Resources: What’s Holistic about Poly?” last year, with Bonobo Coaching sessions to follow up on the epiphanies that ensued. I sure don’t know what it is, but when a culture is replete with such ancient wisdom, the dualisms of modernity don’t seem to make a big difference. Things are all so integrated, so symbiotic it’s not even worth mentioning that we’re all part of the same living ecosystem. If sharing resources is what creates abundance, why not go the poly way and figure out how to share resources of love too? Kalikalos is an inclusive international community held together by host extraordinaire Jock Millenson, an admirer of Zegg and scholar of intentional communities. Kalikalos hosts great facilitators, including Brad Branton of Radical Honesty Rag. Check it out here. This summer the trip includes yours truly’s beautiful daughter Paola and her two wonderful children, Alessio and Leonardo. We will be there June 25th to July 8th. Sign up for a holistic vacation during that period and you’ll find out how to make your love life more holistic, with the added bonus of Bonobo Coaching open to you.
Five days of Ecosexuality in Italywith yours truly and Robert Silber comes up right next, July 16-21. This is the first multilingual course on this theme, with an experiential and theoretical curriculum. When Conscious Sensuality meets 3WayKiss things can become quite interesting. The ecosexual arts of conscious loving become real. Translator extraordinaire Veronika Reizner, also a holistic healer, joins the team from Austria too. Participants come from as far as Turkey and New Zealand and everywhere in between. We will be in the heart of the Alps, mountains of pristine beauty. Enjoying the taste of Italian cuisine. What could be a better setting for an ecosexual consciousness about to break lose? A few slots are left for those with a strong interest. Check it out here and grab one immediately! The cost goes up to full price on May 31st.
Zegg is next with its Summercamp week, July 22-29. In the heart of Germany’s eastern region, this intentional community models open relationships and shared living in ways that are exemplar and unique. Summercamp is their holistic-organization week. The core groups opens up to visitors. “Eros and Community” is this year’s theme. Yours truly signs up to peak in. Her chance to learn how to organize expanded families based on sexual fluidity and amorous inclusiveness.
Last and by all means not least is a trip to Toronto, for the fall Canadian edition of the ISTA Conference, the International School of Temple Arts. The arts of loving are sacred to Gaia: they are the source of all life, creativity, consciousness, healing. Accordingly, the Toronto team has secured the Bathurst Center, an educational space in culture, arts, and media. The team is gang-ho about ecosexual love too. Yours truly will be leading workshops and keynoting on her favorite theme. What an honor to be invited to speak! Toronto is vibrant with intellectual energy applied to the arts of loving and healing. Yours truly has mobilized all her friends, acquaintances, and co-leaders to participate in this. It will be a path-breaking experience, an epiphany for healers and artists of love to synergize the planetary consciousness that allows ecosexual love to heal nature from human abuse. Join us and be part of the paradigm shift to the world we need. Love of love is sacred and the art of teaching it is revered. More on this as things evolve. Stay tuned. Follow our blog for updates, join our list, and “like” the Gaia page” on Facebook. It all pays off when you get to hear what intriguing things we’ve been up to!
On this note, we wish a joyful summer to the entire planet and all of you. The masses are in an uproar in the Mid West and the Middle East. Meanwhile, the new rich of the digital era hide their billions in secret vaults based in Treasure Islandswhere tax is moot. What kind of politics is this? We at 3WayKiss have solutions. The new politics of love we propose is ecological and sexy too. Vive ecosexuality! Stop third planet abuse! As a summertime resolution, can we pledge to practice love and respect for our lovely hostess? Let’s hope Gaia finds more patience within. Meanwhile, thanks to Annie and Beth for their lovely pictures. Get more here!
