LUCIDITY

Sensual Wizard Camp edition!

 

8-13 JULY 2024 - Earthdance

 

This a call to radical lovers,  magical creatures & imaginative dreamers! We invite you to join this journey of collectively awakening our sensuous awareness through intimate & emergent discoveries.

 

I want to join LUCIDITY

For why just make our dreams into a reality when we could make our reality into a dream?

We wake up into a Dream!

All senses come alive and the unlimited possibilities dance around in abundance. And suddenly there is the realisation… we are no longer at the whim of the Dream Dom dictating our every move (unless you want to be 😉 of course)…

There is Lucidity. There is autonomy in our power of awareness to choose, to be not just a part of the experience, but to be the enfolding itself. Before we take our next step to swim in the infinite possibilities, the Dream Dom whispers one last thing: Remember, everyone and everything in the dream is a thread in the dreamweb…

This year we weave our threads of  imagination & inspiration together to create the tapestry of our container, shaping the sensual summer camp of our dreams!

 

The bright guidance of Lucidity illuminates the sovereignty of our sensuous body and its artistic fire, both on an individual and collective scale. Lucidity calls for attunement with our authentic desires and with the sentience surrounding. In navigating and negotiating within a collective body of dreamers, what creative avenues could this reveal and realize?

  • de-CIDE Consent Workshop
  • Morning Intensives
  • Blank canvas of free time in the afternoons for rest and/or emergent revelry!!!
  • Guided evening events, dances & rituals
  • Contact Improv Class & UnderscORGY

YOU BELONG HERE

Touch&Play invites individuals to explore their authenticity and relational dynamics in safer and supportive spaces. It acknowledges that embracing life is not just about celebrating strengths and virtues, but also about acknowledging one’s limits, and shadows, fostering a holistic journey of self-discovery and growth.

Embodied Pillars:

CREATIVITY

Come as you are- in all the fullness of the offerings you embody. Creativity can present itself in infinite ways- subtle, striking, interactive, ruminative, etc. Rooted in the impulse to bring vision into reality,  it is both personal & relational. How does creativity move us to act and relate in the dreamweb?

AWARENESS

The defining essence of Lucidity is the cultivation  of awareness. And awareness is a conscious choice to tune into the present field through the senses of our own body, in consideration & collaboration with the collective body that is alive all around us. What awakens in us when we attune deeply with our surroundings?

SENSES

What a magical gift to be born with the capacities to feel & intuitive through our various senses. We bend time and space in this container by returning to the present moment of our somatic experience of shared synesthesia (from the Greek root of “synth” (which means “together”) and “ethesia” (which means “perception).

CONTRIBUTE TO THE FOUNDRISING

We are able to offer supported tickets because there are participants that are contributing extra with their economic contribution.

When register you can choose between different ticket types. We aim to both keep our prices accessible, while holding financial sustainability. Please help us meet this balance by paying, with intuition and integrity, the highest price point you are able to afford.

Also consider contributing to our Inclusivity Scholarship Fundraiser. There will be a place to make an adjustable donation at the checkout.

This will support offer extra spots for people with economic needs and marginalized identities who are unable to attend this event otherwise.

Join us for an evening of lucid storytelling, creative sound scaping, and interactive performance.
Come early for a Touch&Play Q+A with lead organizers.
We will close the evening with dancing and hangs.

INCLUSIVITY FOUND & DISCOUNTS

We are offering subsidized tickets for individuals in need of economic support. Various criteria are considered when distributing these tickets, which are outlined in the application.

To be considered, please fill out the application form.

There are also spots available to come as part of the Work-exchange assistant team, as a way to support the T&P from within and/or need a financial assistance. You become part of a team that meets regularly and you can add a practical hands on element to your journey.

Touch&Play is an international movement – a sexy, adventurous, embodied and deeply heart-centered family – that has rooted in western Mass.

Our retreats are filled with inspiring offers that form the bedrock of the Touch&Play work.

We’ll start by exploring the Touch&Play’s de-CIDE Consent Framework, empowering everyone to communicate our boundaries and desires in an effective and authentic way.

We’ll delve into Contact Improvisation as our way to connect, call the embodied listening into our dances.

We will have spaces to explore with kink and self-expressions.

We embrace our desires, creating awareness into our shadows and our interdependecy, and we will invite sensuality and sexuality into our dances when it feels right.

Everyone can step into leadership with an afternoon dedicated to community offers.

Evenings will be semi-structured exploration, with space for dance, eros, magic and sacredness.

With immense love for this project and the spirit of co-creation, we extend this invitation to newcomers and those approaching with a beginner’s mind. Welcome home to our diverse community of dancers, somatic explorers, and embodied humans.

ABOUT TOUCH&PLAY MOVEMENT

“Leave the relationships more beautiful than you found them.”

While Classical Contact Improvisation asks what happens when two physical bodies meet in space, Touch&Play asks what happens when two (or more) alchemical human beings meet in space.
