Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle

Sep 27 - 29, 2019 Begins in 1 month
with Emily Nagoski & Amelia Nagoski

This is a workshop for women who have felt overwhelmed and exhausted by everything they had to do, yet still worried they were not doing “enough.” We’ll explore not only the daily practices that expand our capacity to cope, but also the larger-scale social pressures that make those daily practices feel “selfish” or “indulgent,” when in fact they are basic human needs.


Come As You Are: The Surprising New Science that Will Transform Your Sex Life

Oct 04 - 06, 2019 Begins in 1 month
with Emily Nagoski

During this workshop, which is designed for participants of all gender and sexual orientations, we’ll begin with the science of sexual response like you’ve never heard it before, and then blow away five myths about women’s sexuality. When does a woman’s desire for sex start? (Way sooner than you think.) What happens to her body when she’s turned on? (Nothing in particular.) What kinds of sensations are erotic? (In the right context, ALL OF THEM.) What’s the single best predictor of a woman’s sexual satisfaction? And how can you have great orgasms reliably?
