Neuromancer28 and linworth are back doing more cool stuff!
In this workshop they consider intentional subtle touch interactions from the perspectives of energy work and neuroscience. By discussing subjective experiences and measuring their links with physiological and neural reactions, we’ll work out what it means for people to “lean in” to a partner (or the Universe, depending), and what sort of altered states or mystical occurrences can develop. This combined lecture/demo/hands-on session will look at all of these elements, and combine them with the concepts of vulnerability and intentionality to facilitate the creating of something bigger than the sum of its parts.
Neuromancer28 is a neuroscientist who’s spent the past few years measuring kinksters, monks, athletes, and depressed people in activities from the sublime to depraved. For science (really). Countless orgasms, bruises, asanas, mood inductions, and more orgasms later he’s here to give back. And, um, measure some more.
linworth remembers being tapped into something strange and wonderful during her childhood years, though as she got older for one reason or another she lost touch with it. About five years ago she started a gradual re-awakening, and is continuing to get in better touch with her spiritual Self. Through introspection and a great deal of help from those around her, she has developed an awareness surrounding energy exchange that she is passionate to share with those willing to listen.
