CAPTION FOR THE VIDEO ABOVE:
Hello friends, welcome to my vlog. Today I’m going to talk about how I facilitate nude events in groups, and how I make sure that the space is safe and… or as safe as it can be, nothing is ever truly safe. But how I start them and how it impacts the rest of the event and why I start them in this specific way.
So I always like to set intentions for the space and always start out in a circle of everyone that’s there so we can introduce ourselves, so that we can set our intentions for the day, for the space, for the photoshoot, for whatever the event is, and also so that we can communicate our boundaries and our needs and our desires. I think that’s super important that we all start off on the same page. That way there’s no question of like, “is this person okay with this?” “Is this person not okay with that?” That way we all know going into the experience, what the expectations are and how we can move forward from there.
So I usually like… I think circles are great. That way everyone can see everyone else and we’re all even and no one’s above someone else and telling everyone else what to do. I do facilitate these events and have a structure to them, at least somewhat of a structure, but I don’t want to be like the overseer and the overlord and tell everyone what to do. That’s not my style. I like it to be collaborative.
So we start off in a circle and we introduce ourselves with our name and our pronouns, and then we go into what we’re excited about for the day, what we’d like to do, things that we know that we don’t want to do, what we’re comfortable with and what we’re not. Everyone goes in a circle and shares their perspective on what they’re wanting to do and what their boundaries are. And that way when we come together as a group to create self-portraits or whatever art we’re doing, everyone knows how to behave and what is expected and what needs to happen in order for everyone to have a good experience.
Self-portraits are the best and group self-portraits are even better, so if you would like to join in on one of these experiences me and Lior Allay and Roarie Yum are hosting Conscious Creativity in person in Ypsilanti, Michigan on August 27th and 28th, and we are super excited! I have a lot of information about it in a bunch of places, but I’m going to link the Eventbrite below because it has all of the information you’ll need, but if you would like to join us, we will be taking self-portraits and we’ll be taking group self-portraits together. So, if you want to participate in that, please join us! We would love to have you! I’ll link everything below. Please come!!!
