Sexual empowerment means making your own rules for your erotic life. Discover your truth of who you really are as an erotic being, and then live and inspire that truth with radical self-love and shameless intimacy, resulting in a life overflowing with magic and soul-shaking richness as you now radiate at your highest vibration.
This playful workshop will teach you how to get clear on who you are as an erotic being while giving zero fucks about what no longer serves you. Speak with empowered language from your heart and your intuition, walking the walk and talking the talk, but with complete unabashed authenticity. Embrace your inner Erotic Superstar by unleashing the wildly free sexual being within you.
This workshop is open people of all genders and orientations.

Friday, August 4th, 2017: FIRST FRIDAY! Artistic Nudes - Photography by Milan von Brunn and Pole Dancing Performance
6:00 - 8:30 pm
Milan is a Czech born photographer who grew up under the shadows of a medieval castle on the Czech-Austrian border. Haunted by the creative limits imposed on him by the culture he grew up in, her walked away from the smell of his home to wander a life-long path paved by curiosity, open minds, and taste for the unknown.
Milan’s body of work offers a unique glimpse into the way he sees the work around him. His photographs are provocative, dynamic, and tell stories. They are dominated by models, posed in a way that dare the viewer to look away. Milan reinforces his concepts with touch of eroticism to grab viewer’s attention, to evoke thought. His photographs are celebration of women’s bodies.
His photographs are part of many private collections around the works. Milan lives and works in Los Angeles. https://vimeo.com/user16655682
Also joining us is Jody Ryker of Pole Diversity with a show of acrobatics and strength. http://polediversity.com/
