How can EcoSexuality help one become an abundant resource of love?  This summer program brings together activists, scholars, students, professionals, educators, and practitioners of the arts of loving and living ecologically who are interested in co-creating a culture of Gaian-centered, life-positive, sex-positive living.  Avatar of EcoSexual theory Serena Anderlini-D’Onofrio, Reverend Teri D. Ciacchi and Bruce Bartlett of Living Love Revolution come together as co-facilitators, anchors, and hosts to bring this unique experience to you.  We understand EcoSexual Love as the art of loving beyond conventional limitations to embrace love as the ecology of life.  We are passionate about empowering fellow humans to become resources of love who generate together all the love we, and our elective families and communities can use.  As resources of love, we can turn scarcity into abundance, fear into hope, hatred into love.  

The location of the course is the White Oak Retreat Center nested in the forested hills of North West Portland, OR.  An eco-centric design community home with high green metrics, it hosts up to 25 participants.  It features multiple wings, floors, multiuse day rooms and bedrooms, private and shared spaces, bathrooms, and lavatories.  The outdoor amenities available for EcoSensual and EcoSexual experiences include meadows, forests, trees, bushes, marshes, and liminal spaces like multiple balconies, a lanai, fire circle, and Jacuzzi.  Indoor facilities include a wide cooking, food preparation, and dining area, multiple workshop spaces, lounges, and massage areas.  We will cater healthy meals with vegetarian options.  The center offers various combinations of shared and semi-private overnight arrangements in accordance with the versatility of its interior spaces.  We invite participants to express their preferences so we can match them with available resources.

In the course, we will explore EcoSomatics, Embodiment, and EcoPsychology as tools to transform into resources of love.  As we understand the inherent connection between our bodies and the planetary body of Gaia as ecosystems, we will explore the dynamic relationship between our inner landscapes and the forces of nature that map the outer landscapes we’re part of.   Exercises will facilitate the body’s energy centers resonance with waters, lands, mountains, forests, bacteria, the animal world, air, winds, astral, aural, and energetic bodies.  We understand erotic energy and love as immanent life forces that can be sourced when reverence for the forces of nature is activated.  This reverence transforms into the source of one’s power to generate love.  

Mina Bast
Transformative tools will be used in a wide range of effective small group experiences designed as community sustainability practices. Participants will gain a better understanding of the complex social, emotional, cognitive, behavioral and experiential dynamics inherent to becoming a resource of love for themselves and their communities.  They will become aware of EcoSexual practices designed to sustain communities as we all learn to become resources of love for ourselves, for each other, and for third planet Gaia or the Earth.

The course includes small group learning, individual mentoring, real-world case studies and field experiences.  Skills we will engage with include workable definitions of love, solo ecosexual stewarding of natural places, peer counseling practices for working holistically with emotions and self care practices that include, meditation, yoga and ecstatic dance.  There is a specific focus on developing the ability to be a present and grounded resource of love.  You will learn to generate oxytocin, the hormone of love and connectedness, through aural, visual and vibrational energy exchanges in a safe and consensual container.

Teri Ciacchi
Our daily EcoSensual practices will include solo, small and large group processes from many spiritual lineages.  The initial focus is enhancing your capacity for intimacy, creating unity consciousness and embodying love.  The next step is an initiation ritual with sacred sexuality practices culminating on Saturday evening.  Participants will practice various consensual degrees of sexual fluidity and amorous inclusiveness that open the inner landscape and chakra system to the planetary embrace of EcoSexual Love.  The art of EcoSexual Love will expand the range of sensations participants experience as pleasure and the range of emotions they experience as love.

Who we are and why we bring this to you

Serena Anderlini-D'Onofrio, PhD, heralded the EcoSexuality movement with her book Gaia and the New Politics of Love.  She was invited to keynote at EcoSexuality Symposia in San Francisco and Portland.  She believes that "a world where it is safe to live is a world where it is safe to love," and that "love is the ecology of life."  She interprets love as an art and teaches practices of love that honor amorous inclusiveness and sexual fluidity.  Her first course in EcoSexuality was taught with Robert Silber in Italy. 

Reverend Teri D. Ciacchi MSW is the founder of Living Love Revolution and has created a system of EcoMagicks and EcoSexual practices called the LLR Aphrodite Priestess Training.  She is a holistic healer and sex educator who merges specific lineages of Wicca, Tibetan Buddhism, Ceremonial Magick and psychiatric social work to create accessible daily practices grounded in love. She specializes in rituals that honor the Divine Feminine and manifest the presence of love in the practice of EcoSomatics, Embodiment and EcoPsychology.

Bruce Bartlett is the creator and caretaker of the White Oak Retreat Center in Portland, OR.  He advocates an EcoSexual approach to life, including holistic living, inclusive hospitality, land stewardship, permaculture, ritual music, ecstatic movement, and green metrics.  He is a food system activist and an all-around dedicated practitioner of the arts of living and loving in Portland.

SUSTAINABLE LOVE ~~ Retreat in Community ~~ What Is Ecosexuality? ~~ PostaHouse July 14-21, 2012


What is Ecosexuality?
"A World where it is safe to love is a World
where it is safe to live..." Serena Anderlini

Posta, Rieti

In the middle of the Apennine Mountains, approximately
2 hours North-East of Rome, there is a small town called Posta
at the junction of several roads.
This is a place with history. A place where one could change horses
and get a well-earned rest for the night.
A place of tradition, with knowledge of the old ways
as well as the new.

# The daily Yoga/prayer/meditation session is intended to be led by
Community Members.
* Retreat Participants are welcome to arrive on the evening of Friday 13th and/or stay over until Sunday 22nd for an agreed small extra fee.

A primary intention of this Retreat is to lay an energetic foundation-stone for the PostaHouse Community. The Retreat participants will live, work and play community for 8 days.
This retreat gives us all a chance to explore our own and one another's gifts. Those who come together here will find what it is that joins us in fellowship, and where we have the work to do. Participation in the Retreat does not bring with it any obligation at all to "join anything."

However it is our desire at PostaHouse that this exploration will lead to some people making an intention to spend part of their year here. This period may be as little as a week or as much as many months. Our PostaHouse Community will be these active members, the land on which we live and our relationship to one another. It will also be our supporters from further away.
This is not a "passive retreat"; we will be forming it and clothing it together. Most of us have only met before via Facebook or on Conference calls - this is our opportunity in "Earth-time & space" now, together, to make real community in ways which enrich each other in respect and love.
Accommodation and Food
Accommodation for this summer retreat will be in shared rooms and/or in tents in the garden. There are showers and toilet facilities in the house. A prepared Daily Dinner is included as are the Lunches on the first and last Saturday; other lunches during the week are the participants' own responsibility. Breakfast foods will be available for self-catering every morning.

The cost for the retreat per person is as follows
385  - registration before 1st May 2012
€425  - registration after 1st May 2012

We require a deposit of €100 at the time of booking.
The remainder is payable within 4 weeks, or before 1st July, whichever is the sooner.
These costs include food and accommodation as outlined above; travel is at participants' own expense.

Please email us at the address below for more information.
We look forward to meeting you in July in Italy
