Copper’s Intent from previous years for the bower at WWC:
The Bower “All acts of Joy and Pleasure are my ritual”
The Bower is a place to, with awareness, offer up sexual energy to the Goddess as an act of ecstatic joy and devotion. When we enter into ecstasy, everything around us changes, transforms, heals. There was a time when we knew the sacred arts of healing, celebration and devotion through sex. The ancients knew that sex, love and spirit are sacred aspects of all human beings. They knew that sexuality is part of our divine birthright. In our times, a primary challenge is to reclaim our sexuality, transforming and restoring it to a place of honor and sanctity.
As Witches and priestesses, we know that sex is about more than the ability to procreate (miraculous though it be). It is also about our wondrous abilities to merge and separate again, to experience pleasure by ourselves, with one another, with the Mysterious Ones, with the green world and with others through out all the realms.
The Bower is a place in where we can reclaim our sexual selves. This camp is a place where people can express their sexuality and feel free in it. And sex is a place where people carry deep wounds and pain. This camp is a place where people are also free to say “no” as well as “yes”, and where we respect each others’ boundaries, spoken and unspoken.
Feel free to go to the bower alone and with others. Feel free to have a sacred discussion, do a sexual healing ritual, a massage or any of many permutations of making love. Please be clear in communicating what you are agreeing to when you enter and while you are here.
