I’m kidding! April Fools! Radical Pleasurist isn’t going anywhere…and now back to our regularly scheduled programming 🙂
In 2015, I created the first group for women called The Vagina Dialogues. After interviewing dozens of women, I learned that what women needed most was genuine community. Women longed for that group of women from whom they could learn about sexuality, relationships, womanhood, motherhood, cronehood, and their bodies. The quintessential sex ed class most of us never received. Instead, we received a big helping of secrecy, shame, doubt, and guilt about being sexual and curious. I set out to create that genuine group; meaning we could get together and say whatever the fuck we wanted about anything on our minds. We gathered in a yoga studio back then and talked about our lives vulnerably and witnessed each other with compassion, resonance, and empathy.
It’s time to gather again. I want to hang out with you. Would you like to hang out with me and get to know each other? If so…
Introducing RADICAL DIALOGUES
I’m called to offer a time and experience together ONLINE where we all (all humans inclusive of all bodies) get to have these conversations in joy and safety. Until we could meet in person again, let’s come out of secrecy and shame, and share curiosity with each other virtually. I can’t think of a better time to do this especially when some of us are spending a lot of time with 1 or 2 people only and communication is breaking down. Now is not the time to fight about petty shit. If you are someone who is holed up with others and you’re experiencing cabin fever (and frankly getting a little tired of being with the same 2-3 people 24-7), having a “hang out” with others to hear different perspectives and talk about fun (and real) things is what the doctor ordered.
Radical Dialogues will be a time we hang out and talk about what’s on your mind in a facilitated way. I’ll have topics on hand for us. It will be insightful and nurturing. It will be real and uplifting. And it’s an experiment. As long as you show up and it feels good, we’ll keep going. What it is:
- A time to explore juicy topics with each other and receive insight and differing perspectives on life. My favorite topics are sex, relationships, embodiment, communication, culture, and spiritual stuff.
- A learning experience where we are all the teachers
- A time to sharpen your listening and empathy skills
- A time to be courageous with what is really going on inside you amidst this sometimes crippling physical isolation.
- A time to hang out together!
What Radical Dialogues IS NOT:
- A bitch-fest. That’s what your therapist is for. It’s not a time to vent or recap the same story over and over again.
- A time to emotionally process something. Again, therapists are great for that.
- A time to criticize, blame, or be a victim. That doesn’t feel good anyway.
- Politics, intellectual masturbation, or proselytizing

I’ll also be sending emails out with free~by donation~low cost classes and events happening that are a God-send brought to you by yours truly and a circle of my most fabulous healer friends. I’m grateful for the circle I have of people who care about me and humanity. They’ve already given immense service to the world.
Speaking of…come to Yoga on Wednesday and get back a sense of calm in your body and mind. We meet at 5:30pm PST for about 60 minutes. Bring your journal, a few blankets, and a few pillows. Feel free to invite anyone you want.
If you are mega struggling and communication is majorly breaking down in your close relationships, PLEASE schedule a consultation with me asap. There is no reason for you to be on a hamster wheel of suffering and pain. I have ***specials*** for couples and individuals in April to help you get back on track to hearing and enjoying each other quickly. You don’t need to suffer. There are better options!
I love you fiercely,
