Undomesticated: An Erotic Experiential Journey
I asked myself the question what is the thing that would most feed me right now that aligns with an offering for others? I received an image of myself and other women in a very primal--wild and messy--state. Primal as in erotically expressed. Wild as in an active surrender that allows for free-fall into new frontier. Messy as opposed to anything poised or perfected. This is that experiment.
Embark on an EXPERIENTIAL exploration of what is possible when we create a conscious group field to bring ALL of ourselves--soul, spirit, emotional intelligence and fluency, energetic attunement, mindful awareness, animal instinct, intuition and both agape and erotic love. We will powerfully cultivate and participate with eros as a guiding force. We will leave the theory and concepts, roll up our sleeves and get into it--fully offering ourselves to a live, unfolding process.
To weave a strong, safe, sacred and transformative container that will:
-Evoke you at your personal edge of challenge and potential
-Support the transmutation and integration necessary to embody and live this potential
-Be in utter devotion to the world we dream and choose to create
This will be an emergent process--meaning we will have just enough structure to feel supported and we will be largely on the journey together. We will live the questions without looking toward the answers. This container will be explicitly erotic--this includes various levels of nudity and group erotic practices (I will talk to each individual specifically about this prior to registering).
This is open to people with vulvas that are well resourced and have a strong foundation for this work through a steady path of personal development that includes sexuality. A pre-requisite is to have worked with Lara intensively over time as a private client or student. There may be a couple of exceptions for women that haven't worked as intensively with Lara but have been on a parallel path and can be available for some additional mentorship sessions beforehand. (Application follows).
