Fear is not the opposite of courage. In fact, very often the two go together. Rather than work to overcome fear, more modestly we will simply seek to feel the fear. Without being willing to feel the fear and dwell in it, there is no chance of overcoming it.
Deprivation. Removal. Refocus. You will find new and exciting mental states as your senses and agency are restricted, one piece at a time, until you find an inner stillness.
The Love Art Play Party is a space where you will have the opportunity to take part in a curated experience, where you will be able to say how you are feeling and who or what you are looking for. There will also be invitations to discover how you can play erotically with many more people and in more ways than you think.
The aim is to explore the codes of seduction according to different archetypes in order to produce an avatar that is irresistible.
In this embodied ritual we will explore 3 states of being: Stillness – the realm of being, holding space and witnessing; Awakening – the realm of waking up the body – shaking and stretching, laughing and screaming, self-massage and dancing, breathing and self-pleasure; Ecstasy – the realm of safe, consensual, communal erotic embodiment
We will explore what it is like to describe what we feel while we interact with someone in different ways. We can describe our feelings directly, but also poetically.
8 years in Paris, a city of philosophy, sensuality and seduction, created in me the desire to explore some of its famous, still irritating paintings, The Origin of the World by Gustave Courbet.
What happens if we see a picture? What are we "doing" while seeing something? What does this "seeing" create in us?
