An Event Hosted by Tam Integration:
Join Arielle Brown for a conversation about the intersection between psychedelics and sexuality. She'll offer insight into the psychology of intimacy and the longing for increasingly deep and meaningful connections. We’ll talk about what arises when we begin to own and take responsibility for aspects of ourselves that often stay hidden in the shadows of our psyche.
Many of us are seeking modalities for accessing deeper levels of consciousness within ourselves. As we move forward on our paths of awakening, we naturally feel the pull to find like-minded people to travel with. We seek out teachers and communities who can not only guide us, but can also become part of the greater sandbox in which we play.
These communities, like all communities, are not perfect. Power gets misused, boundaries get crossed, and people get hurt. Even when people act with intention and care, mistakes can be made.
As we gain increasing levels of mastery with our own power and energy, we realize that consent and boundaries penetrate deeper than just the verbal and physical level. How we engage with people on subtle, energetic levels, can cause just as much, if not more, harm than more obvious actions.
Two areas we can see this important awareness arising is in the field of conscious sexuality, and in the field of psychedelics.
Psychedelic communities across the globe all have their own stories of sexual misconduct, of people being manipulated and violated by shamans, teachers, mentors, people that were supposed to be trustworthy. More and more, we are realizing that simply because someone has had an ‘enlightening’ experience, does not mean they possess empathy, or even good moral character. We’re called to find a deeper inner with Self, to trust our own boundaries, and our own intuition.
Some of our questions are:
What are the ethics around teachers and students at different stages in their psychedelic and sexual evolution engaging in sexual intimacy with each other?
What responsibility is held on the part of a teacher teaching these forms of consciousness work?
What underlying power dynamics between men and women that need to be addressed in order to create genuine connection in these communities?
