Sacred Sex Companionship Pod

$425.00

Come along for an erotic journey in a Sacred Sex Companionship Pod! Take a step out of routines and patterns. Consider new language and conversations. Take a chance and go deeper into your authentic erotic self.  Explore a more mindful and contemplative approach to the erotic body and life. Discern ways to listen to and watch erotica and porn in reflective ways. Create your own erotic content (if you choose). And consider a mission as a pleasure activist, sacred activist and/or contemplative listener, to help heal and transform ourselves and our world. All bodies, genders, and identities at least 18 years of age are welcome.

      • Pick your topics, focuses, meditations and practices
      • Meet with Bryan in FOUR (60 minute) 1-2-1 sessions anytime from August – December
      • Optional open pod meetings with others whom are currently participating in companionship
      • Access to erotic homework and Bryan’s library of guided meditations

With the word “sacred”, we are considering ideas like “special”, “full of intention and/or consciousness” “careful”, “mindful” and “contemplative”. The heart of this is an opportunity to slow down, to get to know our erotic body in a more conscious way and to see how this can inspire our daily lives and the lives around us. There are some spiritual and/or religious-based options for those that desire that space. This is a choose-your-own journey, where you decide what we are exploring. Together we will slow down, listen, and notice.

Fall 2021 Pod Membership Cost: $425/person
