Erotic Breathwork for Black Resilience & Black Joy With M’kali-Hashiki

In this workshop, we will take some time separating the sexual, the sensual, and the erotic so that we can understand the infinite possibilities and potential that lie in the realm of the erotic. You’ll learn breathing techniques that will allow you to access your erotic energy & circulate it, deepening your relationship to Self, and to The Divine. We’ll discuss how these deepened relationships shore us up providing fuel for & rest from the struggle for justice we are engaged in by our very existence. You’ll learn how to expand your energetic container to inhabit all of the space that is yours by your Divine Birthright that we are often prevented from occupying in order to survive White Supremacy & the kyriarchy.
