From 7-8:30pm Davey Faye will be hosting Pack Night - Primal Resilience. Fetlife Facebook Meetup PACK NIGHT has served as a unique container for San Francisco Bay Area primals for years, and in this age where we as a species must fight a rise in valid fears, public panic, and raw human pain, facilitator Mx Davey Faye seeks to make primal material available to the local AND international communities. PRIMAL RESILIENCY is focused on delivering hands-on remote education that can manifest empowerment, grounding, release, healing, and the joy of letting go of everything you should feel to make room for whatever wants to come out. All creatures, critters, and shape-shifting homo sapiens are invited to join. All humans seeking a space to be raw together come out and HOWL with us!
Class content will shift weekly but may include: somatic exercises in breath and posture, sound therapy, guided meditation, reflections on the current world reality, special features on survival skills and relevant science from Bridger Fox, physical exercises, shared screaming experiences, fun animal facts, and techniques for accessing your primal power throughout the new daily dystopian existence. This is a sex-positive and arousal-aware space that is committed to non-erotic exploration; please wear whatever makes you feel cozy or seen but keep it PG-13. Be aware that this could get LOUD please consciously manage your personal space, public safety, and the consent of those around you <3
