We are excited to host

GoGo

(she/her)

Profile Details

Gogo or Go Go (she/her) started exploring the BDSM and Kink community in her early twenties in Los Angeles. However, after her return to her southern roots she has spent many years as a “bedroom only” kinky Black biqueerfemme (and cis woman.) After almost a decade in the (conservative) K-12 education environment—she is finally free to participate in community spaces. What better way to build roots then to make yourself highly vulnerable to a mass of strangers doing what you do best??? Geaux (or Go) is also a life long personal and professional development enthusiast. Her interest for psychosocial development; her passion for building inclusive spaces; and her love for restive expression has led her to developing classes and workshops that empower others to dig deep and connect with their innermost. This has looked like:

- teaching a creative memoir and feminist theory classes for young people;
- mentoring and coaching teachers, especially around creating inclusive spaces for all brains;
- Workshops on Intimacy and relationship building for neurodiverse folks;
- And using creative expression as self-exploration.

When she is not leading workshops (or breaking out of her bedroom-only bubble) Go Go is a photographer, puzzle addict, a music appreciator, lover of queer tv “dramas” from around the world, an ethically non-monogamous slut, and a student of metaphysics.
You've probably picked up by now that she goes by multiple iterations of her name: Gogo, Go Go, Go, and Geaux all work in conversation and communication.

Manifesting Healthier Living Thru Art-Making

Class Description

Manifesting Healthier Living Through Art Making
Focal Topics for this session:
"Processing internalized kink-shaming"

Manifestation is a process that can be learned. Often, we think of manifestation work as creating mantras and affirmations. That form of manifestation is powerful. However, there are powerful ways of manifesting our wants and needs that do not need to be translated to and through written language.

Manifestation Artmaking is a process. It has four basic steps:

  1. Activating and connecting to our unconscious and/or metaphysical self.
  2. Portraying our unconscious echoes of wants/needs through art
  3. Analyzing the results of our intuitive process
  4. Creating tangible meaning from the entire experience


In this class, you will have the opportunity to be taken through the entire process with the outcome being art objects to take with you.


 Art supplies list:

  • Comfortable clothes (if you intend to paint as an art of your process then dress accordingly.)
  • Comfortable seating and table/floor space for art-making. (a significant part of your in-session time will be away from the keyboard)
  • Blank white paper (2-3 sheets)
  • Writing utensil (pen or pencil)
  • Visual art materials of choice (crayons, color pencils, watercolors, markers, etc.)
  • OPTIONAL: magazines, scissors, glue  (for collage making)
  • OPTIONAL: materials of choice for a three-dimensional art object (clay, paper clips, a representative object that can be written on, texture material (egg powder), paint, canvas, etc.)
  • Making egg powder:
    • Boil 3-4 eggs (whole or just the shells)
    • Dry out the shells (leave out in the sun or bake in the oven at a low setting)
    • Grind shells into powder
