Class Description:
A ritual is a purposeful sequence of meaningful actions that creates a spiritual journey. We start this evening with a (scentless) candle meditation to support you to find the most urgent consequential past moment locked inside you that you are ready to re-experience. Then, in a guided visualization, you will have an opportunity to wordlessly share the emotional content of this experience with someone else, affirming your deep-seated need to be seen and your willingness to affirm and support your partners deep-seated need to be seen. You will have an opportunity to talk about your experience if you wish. Come with someone that you feel safe connecting with. Come open to explore. While this evening will focus on personal experience, questions about form, process, and meaning will be welcomed.

If you don't have someone to come with, perhaps arrive a little early and find a partner that you have created a connection with through class.

Presenter Bio:
In the late 70's, Silver Gryphon (SG) discovered the San Francisco leather community and sought education the only way that was available then, by apprenticing to a gay leather couple. Since then, many others have contributed to his education, notably including several dozen who have served him over the years. He graduated from the Journeyman 3 Academy and has been the HeadMaster of LeatherQuest in San Francisco. He created and has been facilitating HumanAlive for over a decade, a twice-weekly program that supports authenticity in authority-exchange relationships. He has co-taught a weekend class on ritual to LQ for a number of years.
