DeColonizing Eros: Reclaiming Sexuality and Relationship in Settler Colonial Culture

January 10 @ 6:00 pm 7:30 pm PST

$15 – $25
Vcitor Warring

This class will be held LIVE online via Zoom — Zoom links are sent out 3 days prior and then again 1 hour prior to start time. The class will be recorded and available for a limited time shortly following the class. Registration deadline: 1 hour prior to class Pacific. No day-of cancellations.

This class is designed for anyone interested in somatics, the body, and the impact of cultural systems on sexuality.

Often when we attempt to re-write the script on how we would like to inhabit our erotic and relational lives, we end up re-creating the obstacles present in mainstream society into the experiments that we hoped would liberate us. Sometimes we are left wondering why we still feel unfree and unsafe or why we still feel so challenged in our sexuality. We fail to recognize the depth to which colonization lives in our bodies and the degree to which it impacts our sexuality and what we even see as possible in our relationships. We may end up having playful romps in the woods or cathartic experiences in workshop retreats, yet never make the shift towards the verdant, empowered, and sustained erotic lives we yearn for.

In this class with Victor Warring, you will get an understanding of how colonization impacts your body, sexuality and relationships. You will leave with concrete ideas and strategies for how to weave decolonization into your life to create more sustainable, empowered, and non-extractive eroticism.

Victor Warring, MA is a Somatic (body-centered) Sexuality Educator, Mentor and Coach. He is passionate about supporting people in discovering the truth of their erotic sovereignty and helping to remove any internalized or socially imposed blocks that interfere with the expression of their erotic brilliance. Victor is also a diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) educator and works with people in understanding the intersections where the body, sexuality, inclusion, oppression, and decolonization are interwoven. To learn more, follow Victor on Instagram or on his website.
