Core Values

Clear Agreements

curiosity, care, contribution, consent, consciousness, celebration

visit our container agreements

blog post for more of our core values and beliefs.

We are a  community based on consent,

love and connection.

We believe that when we are in relationships with others, It is not a matter of if trust is broken, it is a matter of when. We are all human beings and we understand that we all make mistakes.

We believe in giving people the opportunity to make amends and participate in restorative justice.

EVERYONE HARMS, AND IS HARMED, sometimes. We are all victims, sometimes.

We are all perpetrators, sometimes.

We release the belief in Perfection and

choose to practice love.

At SPR our goal is to return to a space of love and compassion, sooner than later,

to allow repair. By letting go of perfectionism, practicing compassion and acceptance,

we acknowledge impact and move through the process of repair into restored relationships and community. 

We aim to be non-idealized leaders,

who can acknowledge harm and restore

wholeness to our communities and ourselves.

We believe in order to  fully experience pleasure, connection, intimacy and fulfillment we need to be present and conscious.

We do this by creating an environment for self exploration, acceptance and celebration. Secondly by creating community and being of service to others.

We believe orgasmic energy is our life force energy. It connects us to the divine as well as makes us human. 

We know and believe that pleasure is our divine birthright. Our bodies are wired for pleasure. Sexual satisfaction and fulfillment is required for overall optimal life satisfaction.

Vision:

Our hope is that through SPR we can contribute to a world where

  •  there is no stigma of sexuality, spirituality and our lifestyle choices

  • . Where we can all speak into our needs, desires and boundaries with confidence, grace and ease

  • . We can make amends for wrongs done and restore wholeness to community and self.
