About the Summit:
At Evolve Beings we like to create events which seek to raise awareness and nurture mindfulness in people, especially around issues that are under-represented in society or perhaps taboo, even issues that are dealt with under an umbrella of shame.
In very few places in the world, traditional education systems exist to support sexual health and learning. Oftentimes, a curious and impressionable youth will have to resort to outdated anatomy books, exaggerated or misinformed tales of peers and most destructively, porn.
This has resulted in generations of humans, across the globe that lack awareness around their own sexuality and what it means to be a sexual being. When we educate, we empower.
Awareness around sexual abuse and how to recognise it is vital, but absent in most places. Ultimately, we have an obligation to provide a healthy sexual foundation for our children, as this will make for healthy adults.
In the 2020 Summit we want to address the following:
- Can sexual education help to reduce sexual abuse ?
- What kind of sexual education should be given to children/teens ?
- Is it ok to talk about sex with your child and from what age ?
- What ensures a healthy sexual foundation for children when growing up ?
- How does Tantra support the liberation of sexual energy and freedom from sexual manipulations ?
Who is this Summit for?
Parents looking for sexual guidance and practical tips on how to answer your children’s questions.
Man and Women looking to heal and to embark on their personal journey of growth
Anyone who wants to learn how to approach sexuality in a more conscious and mindful way
For everyone who has repressed or oppressed sexual behaviour patterns. Anyone addicted to sex or ignorant about something related to sex. Something guided you here, trust that voice.
