THE Beltane • May 2-6, 2018 • Maryland
Beth and Preston are a dynamic team, teaching from their passion and doing their best to model what they teach. Beth’s passion is guiding people to make a positive difference in their own lives. Her focus is on helping people achieve the life and relationship of their dreams through coaching, workshops, writing, and individual mentoring, especially in areas of spiritual, sexual and relationship growth and healing. Preston brings his own unique humor and story-telling style to liven up their presentations and keep even the most serious topics, from relationship dynamics or quantum physics, fun and accessible. Together they present from a wealth of life, scene and professional experience that keeps their relationship vital and exciting and allows them to create workshops that encourage others to navigate the twists and turns of building a dynamic life.
Cupping Without Fire
Cupping is hot, but that doesn’t mean it always needs fire. Sometimes fire just isn’t optimal. The space you’re in may not allow for fire. Or you may not have all the supplies fire cupping requires. Or you may just prefer something a little less involved. And there are things you can do without fire that don’t work as well with fire cupping.
In this hands-on workshop we will play with cupping without fire. We’ll have plenty of cups, both silicone and pump-vacuum cups. We’ll demonstrate various ways cups can be used, for sensation, for marking, and for massage, relaxation and pleasure. Then there’ll be plenty of opportunity for you to try them, either giving or receiving, under our guidance. While less flashy than fire cupping, the results can be just as much fun, not to mention extremely beneficial.
Live Your Fantasy
What are your fantasies? Are they just too far “out there” for you to ever experience them? But what if you could? What if you could design a scene that would actually give you a sense of living your fantasy? We have years of experience creating fantasy realities for ourselves and for others. We’ll share how we take a fantasy concept and develop it into a reality experience.
This class can take either (or maybe both) of two directions: 1) we can share our process through examples of scenes we have actually developed, 2) we can work with participants to develop scenes around their fantasies.
For participants who want to work with their own fantasies, we will create a safe space for you to share your fantasies, whether wild or mundane. Together we will brainstorm ideas and create scenarios for a plan to bring them into reality here in this sacred space or later in your own time and place.
What we ask is that you bring an open mind: open to what we can do with your fantasies, and open to what fantasies others in the class may have. No one is required to share, but the more we are willing to share, the more fantasies we can fulfill.
WARNING: This class is intended to work with fantasies of all types and is very likely to deal with material that could be a trigger for some people.
The Science of Magic
What kinds of magic do we practice? Divination? Hands-on healing? Remote healing? Energetic healing? And what ancient healing therapies do we engage in? Reiki? Acupuncture? Homeopathy? Aromatherapy? Yoga? Thai chi? Feng Shui?
From neuroscience to quantum physics, technology is looking more and more like magic. And as the studies go deeper, the distinctions between science and magic get more and more blurred.
Over the decades since science stumbled into the arena of quantum physics, some scientists have been willing to take a really serious look at many of the areas that have been labeled everything from magic to fraud. They have done well-designed scientific studies. At the least, they have demonstrated that whatever it is, it actually works. In many cases they have been able to come up with good scientific theory as to how and why it works. And with more reliable ways to image the body and energy, they have been able to pinpoint where and how many of these things happen.
Join us for an exploration of these points where science and magic intersect. Not to worry, you don’t need to be a science wiz to understand our lay-level discussion. Bring your own examples, studies, and questions. But be warned: we are likely to engage your anterior cingulate cortex, i.e., present concepts that raise more questions than they answer.
G-Spot & Female Ejaculation
Everyone talks about the G-spot and female ejaculation, but do they really exist? More importantly, can they exist for me? If so, will they add to my sexual pleasure?
In this hands-on class we will briefly talk about these topics from both a scientific and experiential viewpoint. Then we will give you the opportunity to actually see a woman’s G-spot and ejaculation. As a bonus, we’ll also show you some of our special “Playing with Pussy” techniques, including external g-spot stimulation and ways to get her aroused to make her g-spot more accessible. Finally, we’ll concentrate on helping you to find that spot on yourself and/or a partner.
For best results, bring a vagina to play with, but singles will not be turned away. You may also want to bring pillows, towels, blankets or other items to help make yourself and your partner comfortable during practice. Lube is also helpful for some exercises.
