At the end of 2019 a series of events occurred that have left the future of Celebrating Eros undecided.
While there are other substantial factors involved, the major effecting one is that Susan has had to withdraw from Celebrating Eros as a business. Susan will still be (happily) collaborating with the Foundational Workshops and Play Parties but this has left the business side of our venture to me, Danniel.
I have several directional options to take Celebrating Eros and my intention is to decide on which one by the end of January. The directions available are:
The major factor influencing the continuation of Celebrating Eros as a solo operation is that the intention of this 'business' was/is to create community. In my observation, single people trying to create community is somewhat of a practical oxymoron and tends to creates a figurehead paradigm rather than individually equal, horizontal community. Community is about 'group' and I don't know if continuing solo is the best thing. Depending on other influences which also may cause the closing of Celebrating Eros, there will be a decision by the end of the month.
I would like to thank all of you for your participation and support, and I wanted to write something so that you are at least informed.
The intention of Celebrating Eros is to create a consensual erotic community and nurture embodied sexual expression and exploration. It is a safe and facilitated space for curious souls passionate to connect, express, inspire and educate themselves and others in the richness of living in, and supporting a sex positive world. Gatherings range from beginners workshops to community experiences for those who have some experience in embodiment practices.
