From here

Come and experience an evening of oxytocin-fulled connection as we explore David Cates's Tribal Belly to Belly Relational Meditation practices.

Through relaxed breathing, sounding, eye contact, and touch, we let the animal body know that it is not only safe here, but it is welcome, celebrated and honored.

We let the heart know that it is safe to love here, safe to sense and feel, safe to expand and contract, safe to have and trust its own intelligence.

Together, we gently welcome the shadow. 
No need to put on a spiritual face. 
No need to be anything other than what you already are Nothing to fix, nothing to heal; simply a series of opportunities to be intimate with the ever-changing present moment.

Meditation Structure:
The primary practice is done in pairs, laying down side by side, breathing with the body in a curious, compassionate inquiry of all that arises in real time within each person and between each pair.

While we intend for the practices to be profoundly intimate, they are done with clothing on and are not explicitly sexual.

Generally, we each get the opportunity to partner with 3-4 different people over the course of the afternoon. Partnering can happen in any combination of gender and orientation.

We request that participants do not wear any fragrances or perfumes for the evening in respect to other participants. Thanks!
