loveandlust2.jpg

Love & Lust For Queer Men | Nov 14 | 7-10PM | $35

As gay and queer men, we have so many places that we can go in order to connect over our love of sex. We have sex parties, hookup apps, sex-centered formal events, clubs, bathhouses, and more. In the Bay Area, we are fortunate to have the freedom to explore our personal limits. Even though sex is central to our culture and connections with other men, we can often feel like something is missing. We don’t have as many places to connect with each other about our journeys and about what we are really going through on the inside. We can feel so torn between our desire to have really hot sex and our desire to be close to someone special, as if it’s a tradeoff. There are very specific reasons why sex and love are often split for us in our communities, and the awesome thing is, we can bring it back together!

Sound Immersion Experience with Danny Goldberg- The Center SF | Dec 9 | 7-9PM | $30

The sound vibrations of singing bowls, gongs & chimes guide us into a deep meditation. The healing vibrations pass through our bodies, opening blockages, allowing our minds to quiet. A wide range of ancient world traditions from Confucianism to the Pythagoreans’ claimed that sound could not only "tune the soul" but affect our cosmological & social worlds as well. The physiological impact of sound on the body, emotions & cognition is apparent. Through the vibrations of these instruments we experience an inner calm & deep relaxation that enables us to journey within & center. The Sound Immersion Experience presents for Stanford University’s Health Improvement Program as well as at many yoga studios, wellness centers throughout the Bay Area & Santa Cruz. www.DannyGoldberg.org
