      EVENT DETAILS
      Deep Forest: Touch and Embodiment Ritual (Paired w/ any gender)

      This extended, deepened version of ‘The Forest’ is only for people that have already done ‘The Forest’ in its normal, introductory form.

      If you’ve done The Forest, you already know what a special and interesting ritual it can be. Deep Forest is for when you’re ready to go deeper into the forest.

      We will begin by greeting each other, and reviewing boundary-setting and communication protocols.

      Without a great deal of delay, we will then enter deeply into the forest, allowing ourselves more latitude for adventure and expression, since we’ve been here before, and have a certain amount of familiarity now.

      If a safe-word is used in The Forest, will it be heard? ...Yes - just like nature intended! Along with all of the other sounds one might hear amongst the old-growth.

      The workshop includes debriefing and discussion.

      As always, you set the limits of your experience according to what is right for you. Although venturing into the Deep Forest allows a wider range of experiences, there is no pressure or expectation on you to even participate at all.

      --- version for Paired with any gender ---
      INTENSITY: Since you have already done the standard version of ‘The Forest’, you already know you’re comfortable with the ritual, and you know how intense it is for you personally.
      WHO FOR: Those that have done the standard version of ‘The Forest’, and found themselves wanting to go deeper.
      WHO NOT FOR: Not for people that haven’t done ‘The Forest’ workshop, and not for people uncomfortable with touch from people of any gender.
      WHAT EXERCISES / ACTIVITIES?: Some ‘hello’ exercises, a theory review, the Undressing Ritual (which you can take to whatever level is right for you), and The Forest.
      WILL THERE BE PARTNER WORK?: A small amount, but most of the workshop is spent in the ritual described above.
      HOW WILL PARTNERING BE DONE?: By the facilitator, randomly, without regard to gender or anything else.
      CAN YOU WORK WITH AN EXISTING PARTNER / FRIEND?: Not relevant.
      NUDITY: Some people may choose to do the ritual semi- or fully-naked, however there is no expectation or requirement that you remove any clothing.
      SEXUAL CONTENT: The workshop is about sexual concepts, and touch in particular. Some people will have an aroused or sexual experience, but there is no expectation that you will.
      COMMITMENT: You may leave the workshop before the ritual begins, if you decide it’s not right for you. You may also set as many boundaries as is right for you, ensuring that touch only happens to the level that's right for you at the time.
      RATIO EXPERIENTIAL / THEORETICAL: Mostly experiential. Some theory / discussion relating to safety, boundaries, and conduct.
      BRING: A water bottle, and any snacks you might need.

      TICKETS, LOGISTICS, LATE POLICY
      Tickets are released in ‘rounds’, where ‘round one’ tickets are cheaper, to encourage you to book in early. There is no other difference between the ‘rounds’ of tickets.
      For this workshop, tickets range in price from $50 to $75.
      It is never possible to buy tickets on the door, nor by paying with cash. See our FAQ for more information on this: https://www.curiouscreatures.biz/faq.html

      Unless otherwise stated, workshops start at the advertised time, and doors will be locked ten minutes later. This is because late arrivals interrupt the dynamic of the group, and will miss crucial safety information.
