About the event
At the intersections of vulnerability and intimacy, host Nancy Hunter, LSW, will have a candid discussion with our panel of sexperts and psychonauts about our journeys to finding a profound, sensual devotion to ourselves and our partners through psychedelic exploration. This intimate examination of one’s sexuality explores tapping into the divine feminine and how we, as a sisterhood, can create a compassionate community of acceptance and allowance. We will address these subjects and more as we navigate the exhilarating world of sex, sensuality, and psychedelics.
We will gather at Flolo Holistic - 39 West 56th Street in Manhattan on November 5th from 1-4 PM for an afternoon of community and open conversation. A Q&A will follow this talk, and possibly stories from the audience.
