The Resilience of Love Online – A Sequence of Three Workshops

The Resilience of Love Online is a sequence of three online workshops designed to guide people into appreciating crises as opportunities for deep emotional change.

Opportunities for:

  • Making love the ecology of one’s life
  • Becoming a source of positive energies
  • Co-creating more health and happiness on a global scale

This synergistic creation by Dr. SerenaGaia brings together a wide range of elements to offer tools that can manifest deep transformation in one’s ability to appreciate crises as opportunities for positive evolutionary change.

Workshop # 1, Your Ecosystem, Yourself focuses on supporting people in co-creating a positive energy field in one’s inner ecosystem. This workshop is based on wisdoms and practices from the Tao, as taught by Tao Master Mantak Chia at Tao Garden, including the Inner Smile and the Water Wheel. It helps people envision their own body/mind/spirit as a personal ecosystem made of symbiotic elements connected with Earthly elements and planetary forces. By knowing and loving their own personal ecosystem, people they are empowered to generate more health and happiness for themselves.

This workshop can be done on Zoom. Participants will need an open space around themselves, to stand up and move their arms and legs.

Time requirement: 90 minutes to 2 hours.

Workshop # 2, Deep Listening and Empathic Circles, initiates people to the practice of Deep Listening while holding and participating in Empathic Circles. This workshop is based on wisdom and practices from Native American cultures, and in particular, the Circle Way, by Native American elder and New Age philosopher Manitonquat. The practice of deep listening really helps people stay emotionally connected, and, when combined with the Circle Way, it helps people feel equally present and respected, so they practice trusting and becoming expressed as they connect with their own deeper emotions and those of others.

This workshop can be done on Zoom. Participants will need a private space from where to share with others in the circle. A very stable connection and a digital device that enables good facial visualization are also important.

Time requirement: 90 minutes to 2 hours.

Workshop # 3, Exploring Your Online Erotic Consent, initiates people in the arts of consent, including connecting with their own boundaries, preferences, pleasures, and communicating in clear and considerate ways. This workshop is based on wisdom and practices from the Wheel of Consent, by renown North-American sex-positive educator Betty Martin. It references the four quadrants, the roles of giver, receiver, allower, and taker, the arts of negotiating agreements within the human realm. The workshop places these tools in the wider context of listening to, and becoming aware of how to practice consent with all forms of life on the living Earth. Participants attend online from different stations. Exercises emphasize sensual touch with favorite objects and oneself. They focus on visual and auditory pleasures, on exchanging gazes and vocal expressions. Participants are invited to consider the force of Eros generated by these consensual exchanges and how it may impact life at large beyond the human realm.

This workshop is designed for Zoom. Participants need a private space from where to connect and practice in consensual ways. They need a very stable connection and a digital device that supports good facial and body visualizations.

Time requirements: 90 minutes to 2 hours.

Notes:

  • Each workshop is a self-standing element, as the sequence also builds on each of its elements.
  • Workshop # 3 is recommended for people with some experience in sex-positive education.
  • SerenaGaia feels that her own wisdom and experience as a sex-positive educator are manifest in this sequence.
  • Elements in this series are also based on wisdoms and practices from significant traditions world-wide, including the Tao, the Circle Way, and North-American Sex-Positive education.
  • Teachers and sources are honored and acknowledged in the most considerate and respectful ways.
