Summer Solstice is a time to celebrate the energies of the sun, fire, fertility, beauty, and abundance. A time to listen, feel, and be held by the Earth. We are living in a time of tremendous change. This scale of transformation comes with fear and uncertainty. Gather with us to feel supported in sharing your fears, creating room for gratitude and celebration of life! Please bring small objects, materials, stones, fresh/dried flowers, fruits, and/or candles to put at the altar of abundance. Please also bring a notebook & pen. Light snacks and beverages will be provided.

About Kai Sunrise:
I am a genderfluid, non-binary leaning woman / creature of many interdisciplinary expressions. My supreme wish is for humanity to find its ability to love itself and the beautiful Earth from which it was birthed. The ways in which I express this wish is through movement, dance, voice, performance, poetry, philosophy, spirituality, visual art, ritual, meditation and all expressions of being and becoming around and between these mediums. I believe that what is being explored at the core of each medium is not intrinsic to the medium, and am interested in finding pathways of transverse communication. Currently, I am researching ancestral wounds of severance with body and Earth.
Just Naked’s Principles - PVC
Participation: We ask that you are fully engaged at our events. Yes, getting naked is an experience in and of itself, but please arrive with curiosity and the energy to participate in the theme of the event. Another facet of participation is arriving with a clear mind. While responsible BYOB is sometimes allowed, visible intoxication is not.
Vulnerability: This Principle arose from the need to clarify the subjectivity of being naked. A woman going topless publicly, however legal it might be, is likely to arouse a negative response from most crowds. For this reason, we accept that a woman’s edge of vulnerability might mean keeping their bottoms on at our events. For men, we invite you to discover your edge of vulnerability in other ways. Perhaps you cross your arms during conversation? Uncross your arms to feel what that’s like. Maybe you’re afraid of looking stupid when you dance? Attend our Movement and Connection event to explore that fear and move beyond it. If you do not identify with the male or female archetypes, or are transitioning gender, please do whatever suits your needs. Our Builders are knowledgeable about these experiences and eager to help you.
Cohesion: For Just Naked, Cohesion means connecting with others in the spirit of openness and respect. When we do this collectively, we create social unity. In this unity, we are most effective at normalizing naked within the local and global communities. Respect means treating others how they would like to be treated. This may be difficult to intuit, so we ask that you familiarize yourself with our full FAQ.
