Course Description:
Sexual energy is life force energy. It’s been bastardized, marginalized, and commodified in pop culture. Sex is used to sell everything from kitchen gadgets to hamburgers to office equipment. Then why are we quieted from expressing our own primitive nature? Why are we still hushed from speaking desire?

“To believe in joy and love in the face of a dominating reality of fear and violence is a powerfully subversive act. And the more voices that affirm their own vision of what is sacred and beautiful, the more defiantly authentic a culture we can create.” —alphachanneling  

Candor about taboo subjects is revolutionary. 

At this table, we’ll dedicate time, energy, and effort to the joy, pleasure, funk, weirdness and stickiness of bare bodies. Join our small revolution as we write to restore the ownership of pleasure and sensuality to the rightful owners: us! 

About the Faciltator:
Jeannette Snyder has written about her “romantic” life (read: bemoaning the lack thereof and pining over crushes) since middle school. She learned a thing or two about the power of subversion when she participated in an underground poetry society at BYU-Idaho.

 ee cummings’ the way to hump a cow is not shocked her and rocked her at the tender age of 20.  She somehow managed to slip her 'scandalous' poem about a romance with Beowulf past the review board as a thinly disguised graduation speech. She’s been a dedicated River Writer since April of 2016, never missing a season. 

A Learning and Development Specialist by trade, she designs and facilitates learning material daily, and has learned some important lessons along the way: Facilitating is not the same as teaching. Adults are autonomous and self-directed discoverers, who thrive in community. As a facilitator, Jeannette hopes to create the space, hold the boundaries of the container, and encourage joyful adventure.
