ASK THE OPPOSITE SEX ANYTHING with Roma Norriss & Adam Wilder

We are often baffled by the opposite sex, men trying to understand women and women trying to understand men. In society we can often see the invisible war of the sexes. We are inviting you all to this space, where we can explore and enquire into our opposite sex. Maybe there has always been something that has confused you about this other mysterious sex, or maybe you have always have some sort of curiosity reagarding a taboo sexual topic. This is a guided space for transparency and some real honest truth to reveal itself.

Men, What is actually going through your head when women cry?

Women, how often do you masturbate?

In this playful and informative session, you'll get a chance to safely ask questions and open up discussions about all the juicy topics you never before dared to ask about.

This session will be guided by Roma Norriss and Adam Wilder.

Active since 2003 as a birthworker, mother of two, ritualkeeper, facilitator and Hand in Hand Parenting consultant: Roma is lit up by listening, connection, intimacy and community. Her perspective is influenced by Binnie Dansby, who fostered an appreciation of the original intimacy; our earliest imprint, from where all our patterns stem. Roma is a refreshingly human, forgiving and warm facilitator.

As well as running courses and workshops online and in the UK, Roma holds retreats on parenting, birth, listening, intimacy and creativity. She is a consultant for the acclaimed Arrigo Programme. With colleague Alice Irving, Roma brings her unique approach to corporate wellness, for organisations that want to integrate connection-based practice into business with Think Well at Work.

Roma blogs and writes for publications like JUNO Magazine, The Practicing Midwife, Elephant Journal, Rebelle Society and Huffington Post. She consults internationally with individuals on parenting issues, birth preparation or resolution, and the impact of early trauma.

Adam Wilder is one of the leading intimacy experts in the UK. He has spent the last 15 years divising new ways for people to have richer and more meaningful contact with each other. He’s known for founding Shhh Dating, a dating event that uses flirting games and eye gazing instead of talking and Togetherness the festival of human connection.

Power Up Woman with Alice Irving and Roma Norriss

Hack your womanness for power, productivity and pleasure.

 

Create the kind of relationships with other women that fill you up, power you up and hold you up. Ditch your Pseudo-Man act in favour of uniquely feminine habits that will help you soar.

 

No more pushing through when it’s time to be still. No more playing small to avoid conflict. No more apologising. No more keeping quiet about what you desire and need.  

 

You are not a competitor in a race, you’re a point on a web of connection. Learn to take care of yourself and be taken care of to inject maximum intimacy, vulnerability, playfulness, trust and JOY with female colleagues, friends and family.

 

Using touch, listening, presence and play you’ll go deep into your wildness with yourself and other women. You’ll access the foundations of deep confidence to speak up, stand up and bliss out.  You’ll touch the profound magic of feminine nature and plug into a web of support, love, appreciation and shared endeavour.

 

So you don’t have to be all things to all people. So you can receive. So you can be celebrated for the beautiful gifts only YOU can bring to the world, GORGEOUS woman.

Alice Irving is a coach working on the link between embodiment, wellbeing and success. She explores how can we recover collectively from the industrialisation of learning and labour and emerge into a new phase of playful sophistication. She believe we can unleash ourselves by harmonising who we must be externally with who we know ourselves to be internallly. Emerging neuroscience gives us a doorway into uncharted levels of human excellence, while also bringing us home to the old wisdom of the body.  It is her mission to help us connect: with ourselves, with each other, with the land we call home, to build existence - commerce, polity, community and home - on the joy of being human.

Embodied Intimacy: Belly to Belly with Buster Radvic and Rachel Rickards

Reawaken your primal need for human connection without the stress or uncertainty of sex or romantic entanglement.

In Part 1, we reclaim our original innocence... and remember we are safe to open to explore the beauty of true intimacy by first deepening trust and respect in connection to the same gender. If we want to heal the split between the genders, we must come together and strengthen the bond within the gender first. We are setting the foundation in Part 1 for the possibility of experiencing even deeper levels of intimacy in Part 2. 

Firmly rooted in sisterhood and brotherhood we come back together and re-integrate from a space of solidarity. We will continue to deepen with a focus on generating intimacy, emotional openness, and physical bonding in a safe, slow, deceptively simple way. We are slowing way down to explore with clarity what is keeping us from fully sharing and receiving interpersonal love. A new universe of possibility opens up when we create trust in our community by speaking the truth and when we slow down enough to safely move at the speed of love. 

Buster and Rachel founded Embodied Intimacy to provide something that is missing in this world, which is a pragmatic, experiential education in intimacy and relating. They are powerful community leaders who publiclity wear their hearts on their sleeves, embodying authentically vulnerable leadership. Together, they have a esteemed reputation for creating safe spaces for participants to open up to explore the depths of intimate connection. Buster and Rachel are business and life partners, co-facilitators, and playmates who are passionate about bringing intimacy into the forefront and creating peace on earth by freeing love and eros from fear, lies and violence.

‘Beyond Restraints’ Ropes for Touch, Sensation and Contact byAnatomie Studio

Discover the tactility of rope and possibilities of our bodies with Sophia and Anna Bones of Anatomie Studio

 

For many, rope becomes an extension of your own hands and body – using it as a restraint, but also as a tactile tool to create many different exciting sensations for our partners. Learning to combine tying with a varying touch, pressure and movement can heighten the intensity and pleasure of the experience for both. During this workshop we will explore various different types of touch and sensations to infuse your rope play with new wonderful flavours and intentions.

 

With a mix of practical exercises and discussion/feedback sessions we will explore the following:

 

- Fundamental consent practices/negotiating for play

- Reading your partner/body language and micro movements

- Awakening our senses/possibilities of touch

- Rope as a sensory tool

- Pleasure and pain on a sliding scale

- Invigorating touch – raising intensity

- Reassuring touch – calming/comforting

- The psychology of body positioning – compression and expansion

 

Anna and Sophia are close friends and close tying partners. They also teach and perform together.

Anna Bones is the founder and owner of Anatomie Studio - the UK’s first and only Shibari studio. She discovered shibari in 2013 and fell in love with it at first experience. She has since left her academic day job to become a full-time shibari teacher and practitioner. She loves being on both the inside and the outside of rope with the right partners and is passionate about teaching shibari to beginners. In her shibari work, she enjoys challenging the perceptions of what Japanese Rope Bondage (Shibari) can be and the people who practice it. Empowerment, feminism, consent, diversity, partnership, artistic expression and aspects of body representation are common themes in her work and that of her studio.

www.bonesandrope.com

 

Sophia is a shibari performer/model, nude lady, cat lover and switchy masochist based in London. She has been enthralled by rope since 2014 and has been an integral part of Anatomie Studio’s blossoming and diverse community since it opened. Sophia’s passion for sexual exploration, freedom of expression, and kink/BDSM education have led her to travel to present and perform across Europe and the USA. She is quickly establishing herself as a leading presenter on topics relating to shibari and sexuality, kink, intimacy and power exchange.

 

Expressing and connecting deeply with her inner desires/ fears and ‘self’  through rope has been one of the most transformational experiences in her life so far, and she is very grateful to continue this journey! She hopes to share and learn more about her passion for sexual empowerment, freedom of expression and love of exploring the different uses of rope with others.

Awakening Life Force - Soma Breath with the Renegade Pharmacist

Niraj Naik presents 'The Awakening', a breathwork ritual he developed, based on Pranayama techniques and combined with some serious sound.


The Awakening is designed to clear negative imprints and help you break free from the past, so you can be more present, in the flow, liberated with the power to create your own reality. A series of ancient breathing techniques put into a sequence that combines rhythmical breathing to beat driven music, vocal toning/humming, breath retention, meditation/visualization techniques and the activation and transmutation of sexual energy.

Niraj is a qualified pharmacist from the UK turned a holistic wellness expert. After healing himself from a chronic illness using Ayurvedic practices and dietary adjustments, he felt motivated to share his knowledge with suffering patients and started therenegadepharmacist.com blog where he now shares with thousands of people about natural ways to get healthy, get off medications, overcome auto-immune and digestive issues.

The name "Renegade Pharmacist" came from the time Niraj was heading a project for Walmart pharmacy division in the UK. The project was meant to suggest healthy shopping lists to patients with diabetes and other health limitations. It was meant to educate people about healthy eating habits and, ultimately, help them get off medication. The project was going well until Walmart pharmacy division heads realized that it would have a direct impact on medication sales. The project was labeled "Too Renegade" and shut down but Niraj continues the mission on his own so no corporate interests could stop him.

Intimacy with the Next Generation with Roma Norriss

Parents and those who work with children are on the front line when it comes to intimacy because our children rely on it for their fundamental emotional and intellectual development. Being with children offers a real opportunity to experience levels of joy, intimacy, connection and play that we may not have known existed in our own childhoods.

 

In a world that is facing stark challenges, how can we foster a new generation equipped with the resilience to meet them? The way we raise children holds the potential for a widescale shift towards Togetherness and is a fast track for a more sustainable and equitable global community.

 

The key to driving this outward movement is with our internal movement towards deep intimacy with ourselves and our children. Discover connection based strategies to increase your patience and their co-operation. Find more joy in being with children through understanding how they work.

Active since 2003 as a birthworker, mother of two, ritualkeeper, facilitator and Hand in Hand Parenting consultant: Roma is lit up by listening, connection, intimacy and community. Her perspective is influenced by Binnie Dansby, who fostered an appreciation of the original intimacy; our earliest imprint, from where all our patterns stem. Roma is a refreshingly human, forgiving and warm facilitator. As well as running courses and workshops online and in the UK, Roma holds retreats on parenting, birth, listening, intimacy and creativity. She is a consultant for the acclaimed Arrigo Programme.
