"Amorous Visions": Dreams Come True - Happy Earth-Day News for an Ecosexy 2012


Happy Earth Day!

video



Dear Earthlings:


It is with much joy that yours truly brings the good news.  

Ecosexuality is on the rise with tidings of sexual fluidity and amorous inclusiveness.  The noosphere massages Gaia with effervescence from the social media.  Will love prevail?  Violence  feeds on fear.  But schools of love do educate in courage and unity.  Our most compersive partner, planet earth, is moved and reciprocates with glee.

Research on how to practice love inclusively has received a major recognition.  The University of Connecticut Humanities Institute selected for funding a project by yours truly: "Amorous Visions: Fluid Sexual Moments in Italian Cinema."  She will be one among several Fellows in residence at the Storrs campus for the 2012-13 academic year.  What a joy to be part of such effervescent, trailblazing group!  Not to speak of the gift of spinning the energies to the social fabric, the region, its diverse communities that practice love sustainably, fluidly, and inclusively.  Oh my!  A spell is broken.  It's a dream come true.  Learn all about the project from the Press Release.  

Anna and Giulia in The Conformist, 1970
Funding humanities research on "amorous inclusiveness" and "sexual fluidity" would have been unthinkable a few years ago.  The radiant aura these code words wrap around bi and poly styles of love offsets many taboos and prohibitions.  So academe finally realizes they're not a sickness fit to study in medical school.  But rather, the mettle of what makes us human: imaginative, artistic, productive, generous, ingenious, beautiful.  What captured the imagination of major filmmakers in Italian cinema, and what yours truly promises to unravel in her Fellowship year.  It was persistence, team work, and faith in the vision.  Thanks to all who made it possible, and much, much love to you!  

A special thanks to Imani Mamalution and her family who welcome yours truly in their raw food, tantric home for the period. We anticipate much joy, sharing, enthusiasm, and outreach to local communities.

BTQ, 2011
Also in line with fluidity is a literary recognition.  The volume Bisexuality and Queer Theory is a finalist with the Lambda Awards this year.  Bisexual nonfiction.  The first year the bi category existed yours truly was there with Eros, a book of personal history.  BTQ is a labor of love in a much wider sense: a collaborative effort of many contributors, including co-writer and editor Jonathan Alexander.  Yours truly is graced with the Ceremony and Gala on June 4 at CUNY, and a BiLines reading on June 3 Nuyorican Poets Cafe.  Join us in NYC as we celebrate the beauty of bisexuality.  Encourage loved ones and social circles to come!  Lammy tickets are for sale as we speak.  Bi Lines is $ 8 at the door.  All details in the Press Release.  Yours truly spends the whole month of June on a study residency in Brooklyn.


Oh yes, and as an added treat, a May 11th book reading for Lambda finalists in the New York area is planned for 7PM at the Bluestockings Bookstore, 172 Allen St.  Good company and a favorite neighborhood full of old and new reminiscences.  How exciting for yours truly!  Come one, come all, and learn all about what's new in LGBTQ literature.  Yours truly's reading is at about 7:15-30. 


Events, events are also coming up very quickly.  May 4-6 is the ISTA Conference in Sedona, named Phoenix Rising as a way to recognize the resurrection of Temple Arts from past incursions of Swat Teams.  Annie Sprinkle is keynoting and a panel will discuss the legal issues.  Why criminalize love?  What's the gain of controlling people by fear?  Ecosexuality has answers, and yours truly will teach a class on the theme: "Ecosexuality: The New Orgasmic Revolution on Planet Earth."  Yes!  Life can be orgasmic when we connect with the metabolism of our source, Gaia, the most compersive lover there is.  Death? A "smooth landing" that recycles us to another state of being, a pause in the grand scheme of things.  Join us in Sedona.  A gathering of inspiring artists of love and ecosexual beings.

Allen McPhee Teaching Tantra
May 13 is the "Tantra Goddess Empowerment Workshop" in Western Puerto Rico with Allen McPhee.  A pure joy of this season is bringing an expert tantra teacher and metaphysician to Playa Azul.  In this Introduction to Tantra, Women of all tongues and colors will be empowered to discover the goddess within.  We will translate, practice, and complete the evening with raw foods.  Se habla espanol y el en dia de las madres considera lleval tu mama tambien!  A unique opportunity Allen offers at no charge to activate our region.  Join us in Playa Azul!  All details in the Description.


"Saving the Earth is Sexy," and the Ecosex Symposium III in Portland Oregon, has invited some fabulous speakers, including Deborah Anapol, Christopher Ryan, and yours truly.  It is planned for June 29-July 1st.  Let's build the funding base for this event to come true.

What other ecosexual tidings does love bring?  The biosphere teems with life and radiates energy to the noosphere.  Cyberspace opens up to host the creative effervescence of our era.  Horizontal, participatory, collaborative: it occupies planetary consciousness with new styles of fame, interactive, intimate, inclusive.  On Facebook and other social media, attraction brings together cyber communities that land on Gaia and adopt a piece.  IT workers have laid the terrain in the past thirty years.  Now new life comes to the third planet from the mind-field created by this interactivity.  Yours truly feels blessed to share about Ecosex Sexecology and Sustainable Love, an inspiring group whose extensive, open-heart conversations are especially nurturing.  Join us!  It will be a pleasure to converse with you!

Posta: A Collage
Updates come in this wake too.  For those interested in the PostaHouse project, we have news.  John Overton is a thoughtful resident-in-charge with resilience and enthusiasm.  He is bringing his care to the place, exploring potentials and getting to know people and region.  We are focusing on the intentional community.  No events are planned for 2012.  PostaHouse is open for residencies.  All ecosexuals and others interested are encouraged to join John for the upcoming summer period.  Read the blog news and "like" the Facebook Community.  Email postahouseitalia@gmail.com with your timeline and ideas.  We will respond promptly.  We hope to be open as holistic vacation center in the summer of 2013.


Another update is about Playa Azul, the enchanted beach where yours truly is blessed to live.  It's a Gateway to Gaia, a place of retreat where this compersive lover kisses you when the moon wake caresses the beach.  Completely furnished and equipped, a three and one half hour flight from NYC.  The apartment is available August through June.  You can rent it on AirBnb.  Pictures and info on the listing.  Make an offer soon. 


Dr Lynn Margulis in her Laboratory
As a way to complete, yours truly wishes to remember those who've accompanied us for a stretch of the journey and are back in Gaia's womb.  The loss of a dear one is always a reminder of one's own mortality, of the passage, the journey, the precarious gift from nature that life is.  Many are remembered this year: from Rome, Puerto Rico, New Jersey, Massachusetts. Lynn, scientist extraordinaire, is one of them.   We mourn the violence of this.  We miss the loved ones and invite their energies to reside within us as the cycle of life absorbs them into another form of being.  We vibrate with the loss and grief of others and salute the divine in them with a namaste.


Yours Truly wishes you a wonderful summer.  The best things in life are free.  You are loved.  Violence can poison, torture, maim, humiliate, divide, kill.  The challenge is to hold ourselves to a high inner discipline. Occupy the Eheart with courage.  Hold the space of love within.  Your most compersive partner Gaia is always with you.  Enjoy every moment and imagine a life enchanted with Earth as your lover.  


At 3WayKiss we love you! 
Your questions and comments are a gift to us.  Please do not hesitate to ask.

Namaste,  

Serena

3WayKisses from Gaia - Opening the Aquarain Age with Sacred Gifts and Free Valentines



February, 2012
Hi lovely Earthlings!  

    

The age of Aquarius is here to bring sacred gifts and free Valentines.  Love is the ecology of life.  The water bearer weds the essence of Amrita, Eros, and Gaia into a virtual three-way kiss that's magic, open, and complete. Three, not two, is the perfect number--Dante said--because it spins the energy of love to wider and wider circles until it floods the cosmos and enshrines the planet.  Expanding love is the essence of ecosexuality.  Earth, sovereign source of life, is also a compersive partner: so patient, forbearing with us.  Drops of the sacred liquid wet the cosmos that enshrines her to keep her vibrant and alive.  


Join Our Mailing List

 Our sacred gift to Gaia is PostaHouse, a school of love in Italy's central mountains, the Apennines.  Its vision is to educate the whole person and include our hostess, planet

earth, as a partner with equal rights.  Amrita was called Ambrosia in the ancient Mediterranean.  One drop of this sacred nectar was known to confer immortality.  At PostaHouse we tap on the fount of this liquid of pure pleasure to prove that love is an art.  Our doors are open for residencies and events, including workshops, trainings, courses, retreats.   



The water bearer who brings new life is John Overton, musician, shaman, and new resident-in-charge.  His devotion is key, his perspectives inspiring.  Click on image to find out what he's all about.  We believe that cosmic, planetary, spiritual, affectional, romantic, and erotic manifestations of love are life-giving when properly sustained and channeled.  





PostaHouse offers a unique bouquet of fragrant opportunities to co-evolve and contribute.  An intentional community and a holistic vacation center, this sacred space is devoted to transformative education in the arts of healing, loving, and living sustainably.  "A world  where it's safe to love is a world where it's safe to live" is its mantra.  The sustainable love we teach is for land, people, resources, arts.  Click on image for mission, values, spaces, locale, descriptions, seasons, rules, bookings. We're open--for residencies only--October to May included.  We gladly host events June to September included.  Requests are pouring in.  Send us yours.  Book PostaHouse now!  We'll pencil in the calendar and send you a free Valentine.  We express gratitude to Jeffrey Andreoni for activating the project, to Kalikalos, Greece, and to Ecosex . . . Sustainable Love, Facebook, for inspiration and sustenance. Click to Google Earth for PostaHouse.

 Love and knowledge are twins at heart.  How can we really appreciate something we know nothing about?  Self-knowledge is self love.  And it comes when we know and accept others for who they really are.  That's why relationships are so complicated. Bonobo Coaching is the answer.  Click on image to find out how.  As a free Valentine, Yours Truly offers a full coaching session to everyone who signs up for a workshop, books PostaHouse, or buys two of her books online.  Scroll up and down for available opportunities.  

 Expanding love in wider and wider circles is always a gift to us.  That's what the March 10-12 workshop in San Juan is designed for.  Sign up now for Ecosexuality: A Weekend wih the Arts of Loving Inclusively and benefit form gifts and discounts.  Learn to practice ecosexual love in Puerto Rico's caressing climate.  Space is limited.  Click on image to save your seats now!  And tune in to your potential as an artist and resource of love.  As a free Valentine, we offer a Bonobo Coaching session to everyone who signs up!  Never been to San Juan, Puerto Rico?  Need hospitality, travel tips?  Let us know how we can assist you. 

Expanding knowledge that comes from love is another.  As the age of Aquarius opens, Yours Truly's books are being recognized.   Gaia, Eros, The "Weak" Subject, BiTopia, Bisexuality and Queer Theory, Plural Loves, Women and Bisexuality : labors of love that charted new fields, memorialized experience, envisioned new paradigms, and helped launch new authors' careers.  When this begins to register all around, you know you've done something right.  To express her gratitude, Yours Truly offers a free Valentine to everyone who buys TWO titles titles online.  Your free Bonobo Coaching session awaits you.  Please send in proof of purchase plus the Coupon below by February 20th.  
 
"Education is the heart of democracy," Yours Truly claims as she supports the Occupy Movement and the way it redefines democracy as the horizontal practice of participation that includes all life.  Her UPR course Huma-Love is about the infinite ways that love has been practiced across ages and cultures.  Its videos are now available online.  For those well versed in Spanish, they are another free Valentine.  They are a prelude to her new projects: What Is Love? and Dialogs with Gaia, simple books that explain the basic questions of life, and an open-ended collection on Ecosexuality.  Would you like to contribute?  Check the call for papers here!  Thanks to collaborators and inspirers, including Kamala Devi, Annie Sprinkle, Beth Stephens, and Deborah Anapol.  Also, of course, thanks to UPR students at the Mayaguez campus for the new awareness created by action to save our institution from corporate greed.  We are the university and participation in the design of its future is invited!  Click on image to find out how.

For those based in Rome and vicinities Yours Truly offers another free Valentine.  Her late father, Luigi Anderlini,
 was a political figure who modeled integrity, passion, and love for humankind.  His career is now memorialized in a Il Ponte volume to be presented in the Italian Senate on February 21, at 4:30.  She is moved and invites you to celebrate this moment with her.  Click on image to see full invitation for protocols and etiquette.

Yours Truly wishes you a wonderful Valentine.  The best things in life are free.  Sacred gifts and free Valentines abound.  Pick your favorite and let us know how you share it!  Activate an Amrita fount and put each drop to good use.  Save a life, a plant, a species.  Enjoy every moment and imagine a life enchanted with the Earth as your partner.  

At 3WayKiss we love you!

Namaste,

Serena

3WayKisses from Gaia - Summer & Fall Calendar in the Arts of Loving

Hi lovely Earthlings!

Gaia sends 3WayKisses and warm wishes to all of you!  Happy spring, summer, and fall seasons!

In the midst of planetary transformation, we have been navigating the shift on multiple helms.  The ecosexual movement is picking up steam, and we are honored to be part of it.  Let's treat Gaia like a lover, hostess, mother, we respect and revere!

Teaching students about the arts of loving as practiced in the early modern and modern period has been a joy rewarded with the good fortune to complete the academic year.  Veronica Franco and Giacomo Casanova are always big hits.  This year we also got in Ntozake Shange and bell hooks!  Remembering BiReCon and orchestrating BiTopia, the volume that collects its proceedings, has been another reward for yours truly.  Bi is "kewl"!  Bi Social Network interviews.  Listen here, click April 20.  We wish many more bi conferences in the future and were asked to celebrate 10 years of bisexuality with an occasional piece.  What recognition! 

Gaia's Shore, Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico
Defending human rights and and shoring the assault on the public sector in Puerto Rico has been a priority as our university bleeds some of its best and most qualified people. Aprum and its allies have been helpful in supporting this.  With our livelihoods under assault, we've been keenly aware of how ugly greed looks when it's desperate with fear.  Meanwhile Gaia tends its shores with the sweet waves of the Caribbean.  The oceans have not inundated beach communities, and the dry season has been unusually cool.  Gaia's patience is admirable in the context of human ingratitude.  Fukushima's radiation sears complex organisms with the Petkau effect that stores toxicity in our tissues.  Perhaps Gaia is waiting for ecosexuals to soar and teach the arts of loving that can shift planetary consciousness to manifest an energy field that can heal nature from human abuse.  

Annie and Beth
The summer and fall calendars have now firmed up with a series of events devoted to the arts of loving consciously and inclusively as an ecosexual path to world peace, joy, health, and well being.  Are we going to succeed?  Time will tell, and in the meanwhile, let's bet on our own duly acquired, time-tested wisdom.  Read what Modern Love Muse thinks!
Join Our Mailing List 
Gilf Gaia Extraordinaire
The first event is approaching soon.  Ecosexual Unite for an Ecosex Symposium & Art Exhibit, says the press release Coming up on June 17-19!  Ecosex artists extraordinaire Annie Sprinkle and Beth Stephens produce at the new Center for Sex and Culture in San Francisco.  What an honor to be invited to speak! Ecosex Symposium II & Art Exhibit is where art meets theory meets practice meets activism.  What synergy could be more complete?  Yours truly with her new persona, Gaia Gilf will be reading from the preamble of her new book, What's Ecosexual Love? (G is for grandma--or nonna, as they say in Italy--because Gaia, the third planet, is old enough to be a wise and seasoned teacher in the arts of love too.)  Interpreting love as an art is key to a culture's ability to generate inventiveness, joy, creativity, and wisdom.  Ecosexual love is what cures nature from human abuse.  The ecosexual movement is the tidal force of that cure.  Time to join in! Don't miss a beat: The symposium is up and seats are limited.  Get yours for only $ 35!  For ecoliscious lunch add $ 15. Find out more and sign up immediately when you click this link

Fakistra beach, Greece
Next in line is yours truly's trip to Kalikalos, Greece, the holistic community that hosted her seminars on "Gaia and Amorous Resources: What's Holistic about Poly?" last year, with Bonobo Coaching sessions to follow up on the epiphanies that ensued.  I sure don't know what it is, but when a culture is replete with such ancient wisdom, the dualisms of modernity don't seem to make a big difference.  Things are all so integrated, so symbiotic it's not even worth mentioning that we're all part of the same living ecosystem.  If sharing resources is what creates abundance, why not go the poly way and figure out how to share resources of love too?  Kalikalos is an inclusive international community held together by host extraordinaire Jock Millenson, an admirer of Zegg and scholar of intentional communities.  Kalikalos hosts great facilitators, including Brad Branton of Radical Honesty Rag.  Check it out here.  This summer the trip includes yours truly's beautiful daughter Paola and her two wonderful children, Alessio and Leonardo.  We will be there June 25th to July 8th.  Sign up for a holistic vacation during that period and you'll find out how to make your love life more holistic, with the added bonus of Bonobo Coaching open to you.

Ecosexuality
Five days of Ecosexuality in Italy with yours truly and Robert Silber comes up right next, July 16-21.  This is the first multilingual course on this theme, with an experiential and theoretical curriculum.  When Conscious Sensuality meets 3WayKiss things can become quite interesting.  The ecosexual arts of conscious loving become real.  Translator extraordinaire Veronika Reizner, also a holistic healer, joins the team from Austria too.  Participants come from as far as Turkey and New Zealand and everywhere in between.  We will be in the heart of the Alps, mountains of pristine beauty.  Enjoying the taste of Italian cuisine.  What could be a better setting for an ecosexual consciousness about to break lose?  A few slots are left for those with a strong interest.  Check it out here and grab one immediately!  The cost goes up to full price on May 31st.

Zegg
Zegg is next with its Summercamp week, July 22-29.  In the heart of Germany's eastern region, this intentional community models open relationships and shared living in ways that are exemplar and unique.  Summercamp is their holistic-organization week.  The core groups opens up to visitors.  "Eros and Community" is this year's theme. Yours truly signs up to peak in.  Her chance to learn how to organize expanded families based on sexual fluidity and amorous inclusiveness. 

Toronto, Canada
Last and by all means not least is a trip to Toronto, for the fall Canadian edition of the ISTA Conference, the International School of Temple Arts.  The arts of loving are sacred to Gaia: they are the source of all life, creativity, consciousness, healing.  Accordingly, the Toronto team has secured the Bathurst Center, an educational space in culture, arts, and media.  The team is gang-ho about ecosexual love too.  Yours truly will be leading workshops and keynoting on her favorite theme.  What an honor to be invited to speak!  Toronto is vibrant with intellectual energy applied to the arts of loving and healing.  Yours truly has mobilized all her friends, acquaintances, and co-leaders to participate in this.  It will be a path-breaking experience, an epiphany for healers and artists of love to synergize the planetary consciousness that allows ecosexual love to heal nature from human abuse.  Join us and be part of the paradigm shift to the world we need.  Love of love is sacred and the art of teaching it is revered.  More on this as things evolve.  Stay tuned.  Follow our blog for updates, join our list, and "like" the Gaia page" on Facebook.  It all pays off when you get to hear what intriguing things we've been up to!

On this note, we wish a joyful summer to the entire planet and all of you.  The masses are in an uproar in the Mid West and the Middle East.  Meanwhile, the new rich of the digital era hide their billions in secret vaults based in Treasure Islands where tax is moot.  What kind of politics is this?  We at 3WayKiss have solutions.  The new politics of love we propose is ecological and sexy too.  Vive ecosexuality!  Stop third planet abuse!  As a summertime resolution, can we pledge to practice love and respect for our lovely hostess?  Let's hope Gaia finds more patience within.  Meanwhile, thanks to Annie and Beth for their lovely pictures.  Get more here! 

Namaste,
