Explore More Summit 2018

April 23 - May 2, 2018

The 2018 conference is over, but if you sign-up to get notified of the next event (of course, there WILL be another one), you'll also get a free workbook from the 2018 conference to enjoy.

This is for the ones who are:

searching for a spark, 
some relief, 
a little ease, 
a new way forward... 

This is for those of us who crave:

deeper meaning,
closer relationships,
body trust,
healing and acknowledgement of our traumas,
joy, compassion, pleasure, & growth.

Whether it's more desire, more passion, more love, savoring life with a little more intention might be as easy as asking new questions and not having to do it alone.


At Explore More Summit, we break open all of the stuck thoughts and feelings, so that we all have a toolbox full of new skills and ideas, plus a community to share it all with. 

How do we do it?

Play. Curiosity. Creativity.

It is through play, curiosity, and creativity that we shed shame. It is how we reconnect with ourselves and each other. It is where we reignite our joy, passion, and desire. 

This is where we'll go, together.

 

What is Explore More?

Ten days of intimate conversations with thought leaders in love, pleasure, desire, creativity, wellness, & body acceptance. Workbooks included. Entirely online.

A permission slip. An invitation. An exploration designed to help you discover & practice new skills that will give you greater access to joy, healing, & connection.

Tending. Nourishing. Honoring. We will gain practical insights about  what no longer serves us and do it all from a place of play & delight.

What We'll Learn

Practical and fun ways to introduce more play and creativity into our lives as the antidote to boredom, disconnection, and frustration.

How to set healthy boundaries and use our voice as a way to foster stronger connections and self-confidence.

Powerful communication techniques that will invite more empathy, support, and nurturing into our relationships.

Why so much of our suffering and shame is based on cultural myths and external ideals and what happens when we start rewriting our stories on our own terms.

What a nourishing relationship with our body, with our pleasure, and with the people we love looks like... and how to get there.

How the Summit Unfolds

Ten days featuring two to three hour-long interviews per day. Talks are available for 24 hours beginning at 9am Pacific each day.

Free daily workbooks that are extraordinarily comprehensive with self-reflective journal prompts, questions, and activities for integrating the lessons offered in each of the talks.

Join the Explore More Facebook group after registering and gain access to year-long discussions about life, love, desire, connection, and how we feel about it all.

All of the talks are available for purchase as a way to offer more time with them, plus there are some yummy bonuses (like one-on-one coaching & closed group calls) for more support.

Who is your host?

Sex educator, sex coach, and Explore More Summit creator Dawn Serra

Hi. I'm Dawn Serra.

What if everything we've been taught about relationships, about our body, about sex is wrong? 

Welcome to the Explore More Summit. My name is Dawn Serra and I created this free online conference because I was hungry for a place where people like us could ask questions, practice using our voices, and learn together in ways that actually created meaningful connection. 

Because I believe that we all deserve joy. I believe we all deserve pleasure. I believe we all grew up in a world that gave us a lot of lies and myths and now far too many of us are suffering or tolerating things that don't really work for us. But we don't know where to turn or where it all went wrong.

I want this to be the place where we can find those missing pieces, imagine new stories, and venture out into the world knowing we have a community of like-minded people at our back.

Let's explore. Let's play. Let's do it together.

Worried about fitting it all in?

We've got it covered. Free is awesome, but if more time, more depth, more support is needed?  These bonus packages might be just the thing to serve that need.

- MP3 audio files for every interview.
- Access to all 10 free daily workbooks just in case any are missed.

Gold

- MP3 audio files for every interview.
- Video access for every interview.
- Written transcripts for all the talks.
- Access to special expanded workbooks with double the prompts & questions.
- PLUS...six weeks of group community calls to process, learn, & grow together.

Platinum

- MP3 audio files for every interview.
- Video access for every interview.

- AND...U.S. or Canada residents get a free book of choice from a select list of best sellers & culture makers. 

Need access to the transcripts for accessibility reasons? Let me know & I'm happy to include them with the Silver package. All talks during the conference will have closed captions. Sliding scale spots & scholarships are also available - details coming soon.

Have questions? Good!

Curiosity and creativity invite new possibilities.
Here are a few answers.

Is this really free?
Yes. It is. Cool, right? Each day's talks are available for 24 hours. You can watch one, two, or three - as many times as feels good during that window. Registered participants also receive free workbooks, and of course, the Facebook community is a terrific free resource, too.

What if I only have time for one talk?
Fear of missing out happens every year. And it makes sense - there are some AWESOME folks sharing their wisdom and stories. The good news is whether there's time for all the talks or just a part of one, it's all just right. Plus, the workbooks are ours forever, so circle back to them again and again. Eager for more? Bring the talks home for less than $1 per talk.

Are the talks accessible?
Every year we do our best to increase accessibility. This year, all of the talks will have closed captions. Lorena Olvera-Moreno's talk will also have Spanish subtitles available. The videos can be slowed down, as well, if that helps with comprehension. Finally, transcripts are available in the Gold level bonus package, but if a transcript is needed for accessibility reasons, just let us know!

How do I access the conference?
After registering, a welcome email will zoom over. Be sure to mark that email as a favorite/safe because access to each day's talks will be delivered via a daily email. Each day,  just click the links for the talks & workbook, and that's it. Easy peasy.

Are the speakers paid?
YES! One of the reasons telesummits got such a bad rap a few years ago was that most summits only offered their speakers "exposure". But paying people for their time is super important to the ethos of Explore More. The bonus packages are how we pay the speakers, so it's a win-win. More access to their wisdom for all of us while they get compensated for their labor.


We deserve this. Join us.

The 2018 conference is over, but if you sign-up to get notified of the next event (of course, there WILL be another one), you'll also get a free workbook from the 2018 conference to enjoy.

Accessibility note: Talks will have closed captions during the conference. Transcripts are also available with the Gold & Platinum bonus packages. There are also sliding scale & scholarship spots available for the Gold package, too.
