Make Love the Ecology of Your Life

Workshop Description

This workshop is designed to support participants experience one another as “metamours,” people who share a partner they love: the Earth.  It helps people evolve a consciousness about the inclusive and fluid aspects of ecosexuality, and make love the ecology of their lives.

Roles include giver (lover), receiver (beloved), and witness (also dubbed “moon,” or panderer, or hosting ecosystem).  Agreed-upon body areas for touch are limited to the head, face, shoulders, and upper torso areas.

The giver’s intent is offering pleasure and loving touch.  The receiver’s intent is absorbing the loving energy and enjoying the pleasure.  The witness’s intent is providing the safe space hospitable to, and conducive of love.  Each participant embodies each role at least once.  People are encouraged to imagine the witness as a beautiful ecosystem, a natural host/ess whose energy is conducive of love.  At the end of each round, participants share about their experience.

Some of the questions addressed include:  How does it feel to be the compersive planet that hosts all of our loves?  As we witness the lovers, can we find it in our heart to experience their pleasure as our own?

Participants come away with an enhanced awareness of the connections between loving fluidly and inclusively and appreciating the spaces that host this love.  Many report they enjoy the role of witness more than anticipated.  As people envision the Earth as a generous and compersive lover, many realize they can make love the ecology of their lives.

Requirements and timeline:

We suggest a 90-minute time slot so that all participants get to experience the three roles and sharing.  The workshop can be held in a garden or other nearby natural site, if available. It can also be help in a nice conference room.  The space will need chairs that can be freely arranged, and/or backjacks.  A carpeted or wooden-floor room can be an advantage.  It can be good to use tokens for the witness, including foliage, stones, shells, and symbols of forces of nature, like the moon or the sun.

The Facilitator:

Dr. SerenaGaia is the sacred name of Serena Anderlini-D’Onofrio, PhD.  She is an experienced teacher, facilitator, and public speaker.  As a cultural theorist, she studies the ecology of love and is the founder of 3WayKiss.  Her prophetic books have inspired readers around the world, including Eros (2006), Gaia (2009), and Ecosexuality (2015), the first collection on this topic.

Please Note:  My fiend and collaborator Amanda Rose (Furnish) is a sex-positive educator based in Portland, OR, is also considering attending the conference.  If she does, she can co-facilitate with me.  In that case, I suggest we consider adding her name to the program.  The submission is complete as it is.  This is a decision for later.  Thanks for your patience.
