SF Bay Area Holistic Calendar

3 Workshops in 2016, you May Need to Book Now!

This blog is almost 1 year old, and based on my experience, the biggest exposure earn the posts dedicated to the closest weekend, no more than a week from the posting date. People are uncertain what will they do two weeks from now. And last-minute booking is justifiable in most cases: tickets are plenty, pricing is the same, or the change is insignificant. No obligations, no commitments, the highest degree of flexibility.

However, in some case, the strategy does not work for one simple reason – event may be booked full early due to the highest popularity. Therefore, booking early has its own advantages:
1. You get tickets to the popular event.
2. You get ticket spending significantly less (sometimes, the early bird discount can be as much as 50%).
3. Your calendar is set early for the nice event, so you play your schedule around, and will not lose it to the competitive arrangements.
4. You have something to look forward!

Today, I am offering a snick preview on the 3 workshops in 2016, which I would recommend to book now due to the high probability they will be full in the near future. Furthermore, these are the workshops, I have booked myself, so I do expect them to be really good!

Start 2016 off with an erotic charge and join us for Sensuali-TEA.  This is so much more than just your average tea party.  Sensuali-TEA combines two of my favorite things TEA and Sex. 

In the Mystic tea lounge you will find aphrodisiac herbal tea infusions being poured by beautiful scantly clad gods and goddesses, tarot card readers giving insight to your erotic past, present, and future, and masseurs with oiled up hands ready to rub you down.

Tranquil music will fill the play space creating an environment ripe and ready for sensual play.  Perhaps you want to put on a blind fold and let others lightly touch your body, pleasure yourself like no one is watching (even though many probably will be), or maybe you found a connection in the tea lounge and are interested in getting to know them a little more intimately.  The sky is the limit to possible pleasures you might find in the play space.

This event is open to all genders, orientations, and body shapes/sizes.  We have a zero tolerance policy for anyone being disrespectful of the boundaries of others.  No thank you means NO THANK YOU and a yes only pertains to the specific question asked and does not mean a person cannot change their mind. 

Cost: $27 - $54 (depending on the time of purchase)
