We are happy to bring back Naked Yoga after a long stretch, pun intended. The lovely Lorena will be leading our magical yoga class where you can free yourself from the weight of life all the way down to your clothes! Please see our schedule for details. This class will take place on the 1st Sunday of every month from 3-4:30pm starting February 5th.
Ditch your ego with your clothes and let’s meet on our mats for Naked Yoga! What better way to increase your body awareness, but feel fully aware of your bare skin through mindful movements? Lorena is a Curvy Yoga teacher who specializes in size-adapted postures and uses gender-neutral language in a gentle and non-competitive environment. This class is designed for individuals to follow their own pace and not the pace of the participant next to them. Read the rest of this entry

Sunday the 15th of May saw a lot of kink, from bondage to bringing kink out of you and not needing to feel any shame. We had a Bondage 101, Conscious Kink, then the Bondage Practice group!
Il est de tradition au sein des activités tantriques de diviser les groupes par genre. Les femmes représentent la divinité féminine (Shakti) et les hommes incarnent la divinité masculine (Shiva). Dans le Tantra, unir les énergies masculines et féminines lors d’une danse sacrée symbolique génère de l’extase et l’éveil spirituel. Aussi beau et puissant que ce concept l’est, je vous invite à séjourner au-delà de ce paradigme sexospécifique, car déterminer le sexe d’une divinité c’est aussi limiter cette divinité.

In the BDSM & The Law workshop, Maitre Corbeau covered a lot of important things for people to keep in mind when it comes to BDSM and dealing with law, and why there is still some progress to be made.

So much more still remains to be done to ensure we can play without worrying! Read the rest of this entry
The Alternative Lifestyles workshop gave a quick look into what we, the ALCC/CCVA are essentially about, and the various alternative lifestyles and marginalized identities and sexuality and what they are. It even brought in more membership!
Whip it, whip it real good (well… err… flog it!) / Whip It, fouettez il bien réel (bien … euh … flog it!)
A whole lotta of flogging going on! Then after that…. bondage!
First was the Flogging 101 Workshop, given by Contessa Alura. People learned the basics to get started and reducing the risk. Where to hit, where not to, and some techniques to get started. Sara Jay even demonstrated to a few how to start at florentine!
Afterwards, Vanessa (me!) Read the rest of this entry
We had the pleasure of attending a new workshop series lead by Shana, an amazingly talented Priestess. She wowed us all with her philosophical awakenings and very boisterous personality. She is full of energy, vibrant, and incredibly kind. I deeply enjoyed her presentation on awakening your authentic self. Shana used a great deal of scientific fact mixed with spiritual experiences to share her points of view and it had almost everyone in the room searching their own values and beliefs.
Many people are constantly questioning human existence, creation or evolution, and it`s important to remember that many people also KNOW in themselves their own truths. We have to be respectful of others beliefs and ideas even if we
