Dance into Your Queer Lust

"Dance into your Queer Lust has changed my life. Li has created a safe space where one can be vulnerable and explore their sexuality. I feel more intimacy and connected with my partner and myself. I feel more embodied and sexy in my day to day life. This is so much more than just a dance workshop, it’s a journey of self discovery, self love, connection and authentic expression. " - Michael

Guest Teachers week 5: Henry Kaboe, Julieth Chuwa - East African traditions and s3xuality
Our pleasure is part of our human nature, we just need to befriend it and invite all of its different flavors. The word lust in Swedish and in Germanic languages includes the full spectra of feeling good and the desire to engage in what feels pleasurable. I believe we need to invite everything lustful in life, while at the same time accepting and be curious about the emotions that might be blocking us from reaching the pleasure that we desire. I dream of a world where we move outside gender norms and race but still honor what our ancestors brings forward to us.
This program is built on connection and interactive exercises. It is developed to move you through different themes all related to our capacity to stay present in our s3xual selves. Week one we build connection and safety so that we week two can deepen our undestanding of boundaries. That set's up for allowing our emotions in the space, to hold and to let go in week three and explore gender and polarities in week 4. The last two weeks is a deepening of love making rituals from Eastern Africa and truly stepping into our pleasure.
The tools come from dance & movement therapy, tantra, conscious s3xuality, the wheel of consent and lies on a foundation of traditional dances and philosophies from Southern and Eastern Africa.
I see myself as a human and as a cis-woman, but I also see myself as queer and gender fluid. Inside of me I feel masculine and feminine beings, a girl and a boy, a man and a woman and non binary creatures of all kinds. I was born in a white body, but with this said I owe non Western cultures and especially African traditions the embodiment that I have found today. Therefore I work my best to make my spaces more inclusive for everyone. Welcome if this resonates with you however you identify yourself.
If any of the below statements fits on you, this might be a course for you:
- You have certain connection with your body but you are longing to find a deeper pleasure and more freedom.
- You easily get stuck in your head or in negative thought patterns in relation to your body and intimacy.
- You have a difficulty to find your lust in the right moments.
- You love dance and wants to be reminded how fantastic your body can feel.
- You want to explore your sensual potential outside gender norms
- You have taken this course before and feel a need to reconnect with your body, maybe especially in these times.
Online - You don't really feel people that way, right?
Well come and try it out and you might experience what if feel like not wanting to leave the zoom room because you feel so connected 😄
The themes are built up as waves to build up for diving deeper each week. You can also see the themes as a smorgasbord opening up to what areas in your life you would like to expand more within after the end of the course.
Week 1 - See me, see you! Using each others as mirrors, we will get into our bodies, dance and remember our capacity to feel pleasure.
Week 2 - To say yes and no! Do you easily feel your boundaries? And when you do feel them, how easy is it to communicate them?
Week 3 - To hold and let go into pleasure! This week is an invitation to invite all emotions that might reveal themselves in our erotic lives.
Week 4 - Exploring polarity and gender expression! A friend once said: "To be oneself can be very limiting", so I'm asking you, who can you be?
Week 5 - East African S3xuality! Henry Kaboe and Julieth Chuwa from Tanzania will teach their traditional way of love making.
Week 6 - Express and show your pleasure! To dance into our lust is the reason we came, surprise yourself!
From previous participants: " If I had to choose one word for this course, it would be "MAGICAL"! I'm so grateful that I participated." /Veronika
"I think I had a naive thought that I could keep on living in my flat emotional dead life. Therefore it was very overwhelming when things I had pushed away came out, but at the same time so freeing! Even more so in a non judging room that felt safe. The community feeling you created is something I have missed throughout my life and it was very beautiful to experience that and meet my emotions together with others. So as a conclusion; it was amazing to feel belonging, to be in a safe space, with open non judging people where I could find a deeper contact with my body and my emotions. Every exercise awoke thoughts and reflections that still affect me and have changed my train of thoughts." /Louise
