In Uses of the Erotic, Audre Lorde writes, “In order to perpetuate itself, every oppression must corrupt or distort those…sources of power within the culture of the oppressed that can provide energy for change.” She goes on to define the erotic as “an internal sense of satisfaction to which, once we have experienced it, we know we can aspire…require…from ourselves, from our lives, from our work.” In this experiential rest-shop, we will explore satisfaction as a source of power and resistance through meditation, visualization, gentle movement, poetry, music and more.
