Ethics and Practices of Poly-Playfulness
Facilitated by Katrina Vaillancourt
This playshop is designed to set the stage for safe and playful exploration of all forms of intimate connection during your time at the festival.
The Hawaii Tantra Festival is a unique opportunity to explore deeper levels of emotional, physical, and erotic intimacy with multiple people in shared community. As with all new experiences, it is both enlivening to experience new ways of connecting, and it is easy to make mistakes along the way.
Conscious poly-relating is a high art form. Anyone who ventures in this world quickly discovers that it has unforeseen complexities and requires a deep level of personal maturity, excellent communication skills, and an unshakeable commitment to caring for every member in the web of lovers that naturally grows when the culture is supportive of liberated loving.
This playshop is designed to set the stage for safe and playful exploration of all forms of intimate connection during your time at the festival. In two hours, through interactive discussion you will learn the wisdom and best practices taught by experts in the field of conscious non-monogamy. If you are monogamous, you will learn how to skillfully navigate a poly-friendly environment and share in forms of intimacy that feel nurturing to you while honoring your personal choice for erotic exclusivity.
Learn questions you can engage others in to find your best mutually delicious form of connection, ways to discover and honor pre-existing relationships while enjoying new connections, how to shift from feeling rejected to feeling self-respect, self-love and self-care, and what four questions will save you from a world of heart-ache if you ask them BEFORE sharing in deep erotic exchange with someone new.
The skills you learn in this workshop will save you years of unnecessary heartache and fast-track your path to joyful and easeful poly-negotiations.
End Arguments Forever
Create ease, grace and flow in relating.
Imagine feeling heard, seen, acknowledged and understood.
Imagine confidently expressing your feelings and needs.
Please join us for 120 magical minutes of emotional growth and personal discovery, where you will gain amazing tools, and powerful skills to radically transform all your relationships!
All of our relationship skills are stimulated and tested by challenges when they arise. It is a great growth opportunity and can be deeply fulfilling, when we know what to do. These are the tools that we need to create ease and flow in relationships of all types as we navigate difficult situations, upsets or conflicts.
This is not a lecture style presentation, instead it will be an experiential ‘playshop’ using Love Smart Cards™ and a simple 7-step process for creating a win-win in conflict resolution. So bring a real life relationship challenge and use this workshop as a way to gain deeper insight, clarity, and direction through empathy for yourself and the other, and return to a place of gratitude and empowerment in your connection.
This event is for anyone who is looking to find, create, heal or energize any of their relationships!
Celebrating our Divine Passion
A Radiant Puja with Evalena Rose
Enjoy a playful and deeply fulfilling experience of sharing connection and joyous ritual with familiar and new partners, triads welcome.
Gently guided heart-centered interactions allow connections sacred enough to safely share ecstasy, energetically orgasmic exchanges, and appreciation of diversity in erotic signatures. Nurturing and often energizing, these exchanges allow you to receive the blessings of deep presence and of having a sacred container in which to practice intimate erotic and romantic arts within a sacred container. We'll share undulatory breath practices and soul gazing, sacred touch of your choice, possibly erotic dance or movement, chakra merging breaths, and other erotic practices. The exercises can be sensual, intimate and deeply moving though not sexual, and are designed to see the divine in each other. The shared pleasures heal and people get a lot of intimacy needs met through these Pujas.

AWESOME BOUNDARIES: for Empowerment, Safety, and Really Good Sex!
Facilitated by Gabriella Cordova
This fun, informative and interactive class is required for SexPositive World members to be able to attend touch events.
Okay, let's admit it, at one time or another we've all said yes when we wanted to say no, no when we wanted to say yes, and maybe when we really didn't mean it. Also, at one time or another we've pushed someone's boundaries, invaded their personal space, went in for the hug without waiting, or accepted a lukewarm yes when we knew they didn't mean it. Right?!?
I know I have. How did it leave me feeling? Angry at myself and the other, guilt ridden, pissed off, remorseful.
Why did I do it? Because neither culture nor family of origin taught me any better. As a matter of fact, they taught be how to go against my own boundaries, (if they taught me about boundaries at all!) to push for what I wanted (a "real man" would go for it, wouldn't they?), how to be nice and not make waves (a "good girl" would not raise her voice or cause a scene). Also, I would have been taught that if a man really wanted someone he would pursue them past their objections, and if the woman didn't feign disinterest she was likely a slut.
It’s time for a change: the sexual revolution 4.0 is here! And we are armed with the tools we need, to do it right this time.
In this session you will learn and practice the following:
How to make an inventory of your yeses, your nos, and your maybes (things you kind of want to do, but only with the right person under the right circumstances
Where your line in the sand it, and where you want to test your own boundaries (maybe you don't know how you feel about something until it happens.) Learn how to explore safely using safe words, changing your yes to a no, and giving and getting feedback
How to say no, gently and caringly yet with authority and finality. Also, tone of voice and screaming when your no is not being respected
How to deal with someone who doesn't respect your boundaries (dealing with it as it happens, reporting it, and finding support after the fact
How to get proper consent to protect against claims of violation later (examples: get it in writing, voice recording, witnesses). Although false accusations are extremely rare, misunderstandings and faulty memories are not Physical maneuvers to evade the unwanted hug, a stray hand in a snuggle, or the person who has you cornered
What to do it you freeze (fight, flight, or freeze response) and how to recognize that someone you are interacting with has frozen (usually caused by past trauma.)
This is a practical hands-on class where we will discuss actual and theoretical situations, and give useful information for how to deal with them. We are very specifically not going to be trying to place blame, as we strongly believe that this is a larger cultural and systemic problem, and like all problems, it can best be handled compassionately, elegantly, and with a view to problem solving and best practices.
SexPositive World believes that people of every gender are longing for more love, connection, touch, and pleasure in their lives. We know that sex-negativity has systematically robbed people of safe and healthy ways to get these needs met, and we know that there is much work to be done to reclaim sexuality as something natural, healthy, and beautiful. Helping people feel safe and empowered is key, and good boundaries are vital.
Gabriella Cordova has been leading workshops and classes for more than a decade and has heard from hundreds of people about problems they have with stating and upholding their boundaries, having their boundaries respected, as well respecting other's boundaries. She has worked with individuals suffering from, guilt, shame, fear, anxiety, and depression because of violations by others or because of having violated other's boundaries. Together with a team of therapists and sex-educators Gabriella has developed a class whose aim is to empower, teach strategy, find solutions, and make possible more love in the world.

White Tantra-The path of the immortals
Facilitated by Kirin Khalsa
This experience leads the participants directly into an activation of the god/goddess within so that you may know and experience your true essence as the light of your soul.
This approach releases subconscious blocks and opens up the intuition which creates the experience of direct soul communion with oneself and others.
The format is sitting in lines facing a partner. (often male/female but not necessary)
The students will be guided in a series of exercises which include eye gazing and chanting. The power of the group is used to uplift everyone into a direct experience of Soul Activation to be able to see and know yourself and your partners as their true god/goddess self.
“The oriental world took five thousand years of practical human experience and five hundred thousand years of human experiment to come to produce the science of Kundalini tantra Yoga. I may not be the greatest man on earth, but I am the greatest student, because I loved it, I experimented with it, and I understand it. Today I am going to deal with you, because today I definitely can do it,, today the Heavens are crossing.“–Yogi Bhajan
As we enter the New Year we set our intention and vibration for our expanded self. As we move forward on our path with ourselves and others we clear our karmas and awaken anew for this exciting year of personal mastery. As we integrate the light and shadow aspects within ourselves and others and find the dance between them, we fine tune and harmonize our polarities.
At this workshop you will:
Open your 3rd eye to activate your intuition giving you the ability to experience your own soul and the god/goddess essence within yourself and others.
Clear karmic blocks and subconscious patterns
Move from instinctual (unconscious, includes fears and fear of death) to intuition (listening to your Soul, your true self)
Healing Circle for divine bliss
The Dance of the Kundalini for full chakra activation
Deep Sound Healing

Facilitated by Brad Leaf Amberheart
An exploration into whole-body orgasmic potential...
This exciting, sensually-awakening, deliciously-experimental workshop is an excellent space for releasing limitations which no longer serve and opening the body and heart as an ecstatic instrument of creativity, vision, and magic.
If you plan on attending the “Sex as Prayer” ritual (bradamberheart.com/sex-as-prayer) with Brad and Monique later on, this playful workshop is a great way to re-charge your batteries, rev up your engines, let loose of some of your unneeded baggage, and get ready for full sail!
ˈekstəsē/(from Greek ekstasis ‘standing outside oneself,’ based on ek- ‘out’ + histanai ‘to place.’)
In the Tantra world—at least in the West—when we hear the word “ecstasy,” we’ve learned to conjure up images of a couple in eu-phoric sexual ecstasy, shaking and screaming wildly—or sitting in a yah-yum embrace, with spirals of light encircling their bodies…
YEAH! Sounds like FUN!
But what does it actually take to go into a state of ecstasy
Is it available to everyone?
Can we have it anytime?
We go to “ecstatic” dance. Does that count?
Do we need a “special” partner?
How is this related to “Tantra”?
Join Tantrica and Sex Coach Brad Amberheart for an explora-tion of ecstatic full-body pleasure as an experiment in re-claiming the healing power of pleasure, our access to altered states of reality, and the relationship between our own sensual-erotic body and the world beyond. Join us in an atmosphere of safety, play, discovery, and reverence! All exercises today are adaptable and can be done on your own, with a partner of choice, with the people you’ll meet here, or as a group! Rest assured that you’ll have complete freedom of choice to proceed at your own pace, alone or in good company, naked or adorned with your favorite sensually-exciting clothing. The primary request is to come with a desire to learn, grow, and explore your relationship to your own heart-and-soul-integrated bodily pleasure.
OK! So with that much said, here’s what’s on tap for this ecstatic Tantric experiment:
EXPLORE the DELIGHT of your OWN BODY.
Brad Amberheart will guide us in some basic principles he’s been using to generate whole-body ecstasy since he was 14! These principles include (but are not limited to):
face-down whole-body self-stimulation on a mattress
exploration of prolonged excitement states
(including ejaculation control for men)
noise-making, vocal release, and sound
attention to breathing and opening of full-body energy cir-cuits
ecstatic body movement
vocal expression of AFFIRMATIONS during high states of arousal
This final principle—the expression of affirmations in WORDS, combined with a state of high sensual-erotic arousal—is one which will allow us to delve into the realms of sexual magic and ecstatic body-prayer—a perfect preparation for the ecstatic Sex as Prayer Ritual (see bradamberheart.com/sex-as-prayer)!
You’ll probably be surprised just how excited you can make yourself! You’ll have the option of being witnessed—or being alone; of having others touch your body to contribute to your excitement and fun—or touching only yourself or your chosen partner(s). Together, we’re here to support YOU and each other in blazing new trails into our own body awareness and accessing higher states of ecstatic pleasure and FREEDOM! We’ll also have blind-folds on hand which can be worn by YOU, those touching you, or BOTh to help you go even more deeply into your own body with maximum support and complete freedom from distractions.
This is a clothing-optional space! That means you CAN wear some form of body adornment for the exercises—or none at all! If you wear anything, it’s suggested you bring something that feels stimulating against your skin, such as silks, soft cottons, or other clothing that excites you and allows you to move your body around freely on soft sheets. (Underwear and lingerie are be FUNN!)
See you there!
Erecting Sacred Erotic Community - Truth, Trust, Touch and Transparency
Facilitated by Kelly Bryson
Join the LovEvolution for a New Earth as we speak truth about sex money and power.
Imagine community without coercion based on Trust.
Imagine love without possession based on Freedom.
Imagine communication without violence based on vulnerability
Image everyone Evoloving each other.
(Based on a New Word: Evolove -that is love forwards and backwards. It is a transpersonal
love that we can express to each other that helps evolve one another.)
Love Free of fear. Because "It takes a village to raise a consciousness, or a relationship" we will dive deep into "What does it take to create a Transparent, Trusting, Touching. Tantric. Tolerant Tribe." We will be creating a "Field" of "We’ness" or connection thru experiencing Kelly's different "Tribal Technologies" like "Humanizing Hugs", the "Aloha Kiss", , "Empower Shower", "Dance I am"etc. And then from that Connection flows the Direction of the group.
We will use the SD/Zegg Forum as needed to explore the great community issues like the wounded relationship between the masculine and feminine, mankind and nature, and the breakdown of deep community. We can also explore the great individual issues like Jealousy, (jealousy is a part of love in the same way asthma is a part of breathing) neediness, expectation, infidelity and the lust for fully lived lives. We will learn tools for bringing out the "Shadow" of the individuals and the group with compassion and humor.
"The next Buddha will be a community" says Thich Nhat Han. And “community is a state of consciousness”, says Sabine Lichtenfels co-founder of the Tamera Community in Portugal. We will experience how to enter this state and learn principals and tools for deepening this state. Because we are Social Spiritual beings we can only evolve thru truthful intimate encounters in service to a Sacred Matrix of Life. We will go spiritually spelunking into the four great love caverns of consciousness - The self, erotic, spiritual, and community loves.
We will be drawing from "Terra Nova, Global Revolution and The Healing of Love" the new book by Dietre Duhm cofounder of the Tamera Community. (see Tamera.org & zegg.de ) We will also draw on Kelly's 30 years of experience as a certified NVC trainer, his personal work w/Abraham Hicks, Eckhart Tolle, Virginia Satir and Marshall Rosenberg, Sabine Lichtenfels and his own Higher Elf.
"We need community in which the latent war between the genders has ended, in which free sexuality is based on truth and trust, and in which our fellow beings are respected as cooperation partners within a sacred alliance. We need intimate cooperation with nature and the universe because healing is the reconnection with the original power field of the divine world. This applies to the individual organism, to the organism of a community, and to the organism of all humankind." By Dietre Duhm in the book "Terra Nova"
"Communities are developing now that collectively understand how fear does not need to be a part of life, how jealousy does not need to be a part of love and how duty, obligation and sacrifice is not a part of right livelihood, punishment and praise no longer a part of parenting, and the love of power will be replace by the power of Love. One day it will be part of the collective and the cultural norm to be conscious of our individual needs. Only then can we have true grass roots democracy. We can only be self determined if we have self awareness of our needs in the context of a community that supports individual autonomy.
Heinze Kohut the existential psychologist said, “What human beings most need is the mirroring presence of others."
Why? So we can know and accept our needs, feelings, essential selves, personalities, hearts, spirituality, sexuality and souls. From this supportive, conscious and empowered community container, individuals can be fully expressed. I believe so many great organizations and communities do not have all the tools, or Tribal Technologies as I call them, to facilitate the development of what Martin Luther King Jr. called “The Beloved Community” .
White Tantra Puja
Facilitated by Scott Catamas and Emily Orum
OPENING NIGHT CONNECTION CEREMONY
Imagine community without coercion based on Trust. We are starting our time at the HTF with a series of connection experiences. First off, sacred sound healing to raise the vibration. Then, Kirtan with Call & Response to open our bodies (especially our hearts and throats). We will then drop into a deep meditation to reflect on our personal goals for our time together at the HTF. Diving deeper, we connect to the land and Mother Nature. We connect to our own Divinity. We fill ourselves with Divine Inspiration.
NOW, we are ready to connect to others. We do so in a very sweet, safe White Tantra Puja. We share our soul essence with others, and see the Divinity in all. This is a very loving and safe way to start meeting new friends!
This event is being led by Scott Catamas and Emily Orum, co-founders of the Love Coach Academy. They have led similar experiences all over the world, from Australia to Canada. Scott and Emily are masterful at creating a safe container of love, that helps people to remember their own Divinity.
Facilitated by Leapin’ Lygress
Deliciously tease the booty...
In this playful workshop you will learn how to co-create consent culture, communicate clearly, read body language, and use safe words to create a secure and sensual container. You will also learn how to somatically feel your yes or no, practice asking others, and changing your mind, all the while using your voice and empowering others to do the same! Then we’ll learn to warm up and deliciously tease the booty, some specific styles of swatting, spanking positions, the difference between thud and sting, and how to find out where your playmate’s sweet spot is. This is a very hands-on and interactive class, in which purrrticipants are encouraged to try out both spanker and spankee roles.
I love helping people inhabit edgy places with greater ease and joy!
7 Gates to Bliss - For People with Pussies
Facilitated by Ellie Wilde
A journey of reclaiming the potent energy of the womb.
Take the path of descension, travel down into the Earth Womb as we link our bodies to the
shamanic energies in the Earth and re-connect to an ancient map, a super highway to a more
embodied and awakened sexuality.
The 7 gates to bliss is a journey of reclaiming the potent energy of the womb. Chinese medicine
refer to this powerful energetic centre in the body as the Dan-tien or Japanese the Hara.
Most of us are aware of this powerful vortex within the body. Everyone has this connection whether
they have a physical womb or not, whether you are in a male or female body, (this particular
journey is intended for those with a female body.)
The 7 Gates to Bliss is a dynamic process it is a journey through the emotional body into the bliss
Each gate has a physical location on the yoni or inside the womb ( except the last gate which is
beyond the physical dimension). Each gate also has a particular vibrational/emotional frequency to
it and when the body vibrates at that emotional state it acts as a key and opens the portal held
there a gateway to deepening the potency of the womb.
Opening and connecting to each gate and portal changes how we are in the world, it is the super
highway to deeper and more fulfilling relationships and sex, and embodying our power as women.
We cannot access the full power and potency of the womb if we are not clear in our sexuality, it is
through our genitals and sexuality that we enter up into the womb space, what ever we are holding
in this part of our body which is keeping us dis-empowered needs to be felt and moved all the way
The only way through is through in this exquisite and ecstatic pathway to embodied feminine
Radical Intimacy through Radical Vulnerability: ZEGG Forum as a Tool for Community Connection
Facilitated by Sarah Taub
Transcend community conflict, drop your stories of who you think you are, and embrace personal and collective transformation.
This edgy event is an exploration of the power of group synergy. We will be using one of the most potent tribal technologies in the field of personal growth, ZEGG Forum, along with other skill building practices, to bond with each other and reveal whatever needs to be addressed. ZEGG Forum is a compassionate and transformative space for revealing whatever is hidden but influencing the common “field.” Forum can bring out issues of sex, power, money, competition, love, or any other aspect of consciousness – individuals’ process and perspectives come forth and are held in compassion as part of the shared story of being human.
Our intention is to empower you with a hands-on experience of the transparency, vulnerability, and intimate potential of ZEGG Forum, so that you may see aspects of yourself that have been hidden. You'll also learn to hold space for others to see their own blind spots, and learn the secret ingredients to building secure community bonds that allow individuals to emerge and shine.
One of the gifts of ZEGG Forum is that it allows us a space to appreciate every perspective without taking it on as “truth.” Every voice has its own poignancy, its own wisdom, its own truth, that does not negate the wisdom and truth of other perspectives. Allowing all voices to surface and be known can lead to a profound and unexpected integration within a community. We tend to think that events leading to painful experiences and conflicts are bad, because they feel bad in the moment. However, when we open ourselves and compassionately witness what is happening for everyone, these experiences can be gateways to greater closeness, understanding, and love. When conflict emerges, whether or not we are in a formal Forum space, we can choose to listen in this way. This deep listening sustains and nurtures community life and relationships.
Come to this event if you:
- Are tired of how personality conflicts can destroy groups, and want to turn them into growth opportunities.
- Want to provide a space to develop empathy and compassion.
- Want to create a space where all sides of a conflict are witnessed with compassion and curiosity, leading to clarity about peaceful resolution.
- Want methods for supporting your group to share visions, common goals and values.
- Are practicing leadership at the organizational or professional level and want to make it more personal.
- Are a part of a spiritual community, personal growth group or interested in social change on a local or global scale.
- Are interested in sustainable community living.

Tantra: Pathway for the Evolution of Consciousness
Facilitated by Brad-Leaf Amberheart
A panel discussion of tantra teachers and practitioners from various traditions collectively discussing what tantra is.
Tantra--it's a word we're using left and right these days. But what exactly IS it? Red Tantra? White Tantra? The word ""Tantra"" comes from a Sanskrit word which means ""to weave"".
