Stella Harris Visits Seattle in July!

Now that we are getting settled into Gallery Erato, we can turn our attention to getting more fabulous educators to come to Seattle! The weekend of July 6th boasts three incredibly diverse workshops by the very talented Stella Harris, an intimacy educator from Portland, Oregon.

Stella Harris is an author, educator, and coach who focuses on intimacy and connection. As a certified Intimacy Educator, she uses a variety of tools to guide and empower her clients and she teaches everything from pleasure anatomy, to communication skills, to kink and BDSM. She has presented classes for a variety of organizations including the Portland Leather Alliance, the Portland Academy of Sex Ed, Sex Positive Portland, and more, and has spoken at Portland State University, Reed College, and Pacific University. Stella is widely published in print and online, from erotic fiction to educational and lifestyle pieces on sex and kink.

For Date Night

Friday, July 6 — 7:00pm-11:00pm
Rope Bondage for Intimacy: A Date Night event with Educator Stella Harris
Cost: $80 (Duo) Advance: $65 (Duo) Includes dessert and refreshments.

This isn’t a rope class, first and foremost. No knots or ties will be taught. Rope is simply the tool we happen to be using to connect with our partners, and for this class you’ll use whatever rope skills you already have to maximize pleasure and connection. What you’ll learn are ways to negotiate a scene that take into account not just what you are going to do, but how you both want to feel. We’ll work through a series of exercises that help us hone in on our partner and our shared experience. We’ll also talk about ways to focus on your partner and drown out background distractions, even at parties.

Please bring rope and a partner, and maybe a blanket or yoga mat, as this class relies heavily on exercises.  After the workshop, there will be extra time to practice your new skills, or socialize, while enjoying refreshments and desserts.

For Educators & Activists

Saturday, July 7 — 11:00am-1:00pm
Battling Impostor Syndrome for Sexuality Professionals ~Educator: Stella Harris
Cost: $35. Advance: $25 (Solo) $48 (Duo) and $70 (Trio)

Have you ever had a moment of panic before a class or client session when you’re sure that you have nothing to offer? That everyone already knows everything you know? There’s a name for that: Impostor Syndrome. The insidious belief that we’re not good enough can prevent us from offering our talents to the world, and it’s more than a simple confidence problem. But there’s good news: “Researchers find that impostorism is most often found among extremely talented and capable individuals, not people who are true impostors.”

In this session we’ll discuss Impostor Syndrome and how it manifests, we’ll figure out how to identify when that’s what we’re experiencing, and we’ll talk about ways to get around it so we can be fiercely and authentically ourselves, and get our passion and message out into the world.

For Explorers

Saturday, July 7 — 2:00pm-4:00pm
Foolin’ Around: Introducing Toys in the Bedroom ~Educator: Stella Harris
Cost: $35. Advance: $25 (Solo) $48 (Duo) $70 (Trio) and $50 (Exploration Kit)

Have you ever wondered how to introduce sex toys to your own bedroom play? Are you curious but don’t know where to start? Or maybe you’ve been using some toys for years, and want to expand beyond the basics— this class is for you.

We’ll talk about the best toys to use with partners from vibrators and dildos and butt plugs to kinky items like paddles and blindfolds and rope. We’ll also show you the benefits of wedges and supports to create more satisfying sex positions. This class has something for everyone and in addition to everything you’ll learn, the class itself is a perfect date night. Try something novel and naughty with your sweetie!

Stella hopes to build a world where everyone has the tools and confidence to explore their sexuality safely and free of shame. Come be part of this world! Learn more about Stella and her new book, Tongue Tied, at www.stellaharris.net.

Date Night & Mixer Events

The Pan Eros Foundation’s mission is to celebrate and cultivate sexuality. One of the main ways we embody this mission is through our Education Program. Learning and exploring is a great way to cultivate and refine your pleasure. Attending a workshop or lecture is a powerful way to honor yourself by investing in an integral part of what makes you a human. We are pleased to expand our Education Program offerings to include more socially oriented events; Date Nights and Mixers.

Date Nights

Date Night events will be a balance of time spent learning a skill and having timing to practice. The first half of the evening will be structured learning with an expert in sexuality, kink, or BDSM. The second half of the event will be a more relaxed atmosphere where you can practice what you just learned. The educator and our staff will be available to answer questions or facilitate your experiments.  Your admission to Date Night events will include dessert and refreshments. We encourage everyone to bring a water bottle.

Mixers

Mixer events will create a learning atmosphere that encourages social interaction and meeting new people. Based on the “social dance” model of learning to dance; attendees will be shown a skill, and then have a change to practice with multiple people. After the structured portion of the workshop, there will be time and space to chat with other attendees.  Your admission to Mixer events will include light snacks and refreshments. We encourage everyone to bring a water bottle.

Keep an eye on our Education page and our calendar to find out when Mixer and Date Night events are scheduled. Joining our mailing list is another great way to hear about these events.
