Come meet the authors of the newly published book Ecosexuality: When Nature Inspires the Arts of Love and learn about how sexuality, ecology, artistic expression, permaculture and community-living are all connected.
Lindsay Hagamen and Emily Boyer will discuss what it’s like to live in the first ecosexual community – Windward – the relationship between ecosex theory, art and practice, and the making of the world’s first anthology about ecosexuality. Lindsay will also share about the innovative approach to social change that Windward is developing and their experimental model that grounds creativity, sexual sovereignty and community values within the context of ecological stewardship. Emily will offer how ecosexuality provides a unique opportunity to create meaningful cultural change while also having fun and exploring self-expression.
Lindsay Hagamen is the President of Windward, an intentional community dedicated to creating a working model of a sustainable, love-based culture. She is the co-editor of Ecosexuality: When Nature Inspires the Arts of Love, the co-creator of the annual EcoSex Convergence, and offers workshops on ecosexuality, community and permaculture. Lindsay enjoys immersing her hands in rich garden soil and being a lover of the Wild. To learn more visit myloverearth.org
