Celebrating the Body Erotic for Women

In a safe, serious and playful space that respects boundaries, embrace pleasure and experience your body as powerful, expressive and sacred. The class expands awareness and sensation through a process of breath, movement and touch. Each woman’s choices and rhythms are honored and celebrated.

This workshop is for women of all sexual orientations and ages who are ready to learn about their own power to illuminate and enjoy sexuality and sensuality within a community of women.

During the program of carefully designed embodiment practices women will:

  • explore the innate wisdom of the body
  • expand awareness, sensation and pleasure through conscious breath, movement, touch, and communication, where each woman’s choices and rhythms are honored
  • learn how to more deeply tune in to your body, mind, heart and spirit: to receive more fully from yourself and others, and to give without losing yourself
  • learn to give and receive full-body massage and to focus on the healing potential of sensual/spiritual energy
  • learn from your own and others’ unfolding, and feel awed witnessing and supporting our uniqueness and commonalities

Celebrating the Body Erotic runs Friday evening from 6:30-10 PM and runs all day Saturday and Sunday (9 AM-7 PM).

Hey there! What does the Body Electric School do to include people with low-income. I'm curious because your mandate really stresses accessibility, but the workshop fee is about two months rent for me.

Asked by: Fi7777
Sadly, we wish we could provide this work for everyone, but we can't because we, like any other organization, have costs and bills to pay. For 31 years, we have operated on a shoestring and, aside from faculty, have no paid staff - mostly volunteers passionate about what we do. At the same, through the generosity of donors, we have set up a scholarship fund which is managed by an autonomous group to review applications and provide scholarship awards. Go to our website to apply: http://www.thebodyelectricschool.com/scholarships/ Next, Coordinators have a limited amount of funds for each of their workshops to distribute on a need basis. Contact your local Coordinator for more information. Finally, PayPal allows six months of interest-free financing for US citizens. Apply for credit online at PayPal.com, then sign up for a workshop and select the financing alternative. Hopefully these options will be of value. If you have any further questions, please contact our Registrar at info@b-e-school.com or (510) 653-1594.

Considering the May NYC workshop. How large will the class be? Is it limited to women only? Or will there be couples? Thanks, Michele

Asked by: michele
Thank you, Michele, for your question. We won't know until we are much closer to the date how many women will register. Yes, this is a women-only workshop. A mixed gender residential workshop entitled "Celebrating Sacred Eros" will be held in September (see http://www.thebodyelectricschool.com/all-gender-introductory/celebrate-sacred-eros/). We hope to see you soon.

Is this a residential workshop? If so, where in New York City is it located? If so, then the price is all inclusive and reflects housing and meals? Thank you

Asked by: rascal
The May's workshop is not residential and it is going to be located on west 28th st between 6th and 7th ave in NYC. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me @ nycwomen@b-e-school.com

In a separate question, the answer indicated that the NYC program is not residential - what about the Victoria program? Thanks

Asked by: Marie
Neither are residential programs. However, accommodations are available onsite for the Victoria workshop. Please contact the coordinator (victoria@b-e-school.com) for more information. As a rule of thumb, if a program is residential, it will be stated that in the workshop description.

It is not clear - is the workshop residential? Where does it take place? Meals and lodging are included in the price? Thank you.

Asked by: rascal
No, the New York program is not a residential program and therefore meals and lodging are not included. The location is in midtown Manhattan and will be advised upon registration The coordinator can recommend possible housing options.

When/Where is this next happening? Can I be part of the coordinating crew that brings this to the SF Bay Area.

Asked by: Francesca
The new schedule will be up soon but the next women's workshop will be in Victoria BC March 27-29, 2015. Contact the coordinator, Sher, at victoria@b-e-school.com for more information. We would love to have your support in the Bay Area! We ask that coordinators have the experience of at least two Body Electric workshops so that they have a clear understanding of this work. There may be some flexibility given one's background. Write me at tberry@b-e-school.com and let's discuss.

on your website, I see that you offer a lot of workshops for men.  How often do you have workshops for women.  

Asked by: regina
Hi, Regina! Thank you for your question and your interest in our programming for women. The honest truth is: Not enough! We currently have women coordinators in Victoria (BC), San Antonio (TX) and New York City. We would love to see more women who have experienced and support our programming to take on this role in their cities. Women's workshops will take place in all three cities in 2015. It also takes a lot for women to get the nerve to come to a workshop. So often, attendance is limited. We are hoping with testimonials on the website, questions like yours, and general comments and star ratings, we will see greater interest and enrollment. Come support us and have an experience that could change your life!

Hi - My spouse and I are really interested in attending one of your workshops for women. When is the next one going to be held? I can't find a date in the near future and hope you have something coming up soon.  Thanks. Stephanie 

Asked by: Steph
Thank you for your interest in our women's programming! The new schedule will be up very shortly. But I can give you the heads up that the Women's Spring workshops are planned for Victoria BC March 27-29 and in New York City May 15-17. We look forward to welcoming you and your spouse!
