Basic Sensuality

Basic Sensuality describes the ways in which we all create our emotional and experiential lives, including wins and losses, joys and sorrows. With increased insight, you may find that you can live more deliberately and create a life that truly gratifies you.

This course provides information on how to experience maximum pleasure in your own body and how to produce maximum pleasure in your partner. It describes and explores the functioning of the human nervous system and addresses societal attitudes and self imposed limitations around pleasure and in all areas of life.

Included is lecture and discussion of responsible hedonism, apparent sexual dysfunctions, training your partner to pleasure you sensually, safer sex practices, handling resistances to pleasure, and the one no-vote, as well as many other topics.

Your goals are identified and addressed and you are encouraged to ask any questions you have. You will have homework to do in private on Saturday following the evening session.

Fundamentals of Sensuality

Fundamentals of Sensuality is a one-day course on the nature of pleasure and includes a live demonstration of a woman in orgasm for one hour. The morning session is a lecture, with time for questions, explaining some of the research that led up to the development of this demonstration, first presented to the public in 1976. Also described is the ongoing investigation of the concepts and techniques used to train people to experience pleasure at the level of intensity and duration displayed on the stage. The afternoon session is devoted entirely to the demonstration, which shows that the amount of sensual pleasure available to an individual far exceeds the expectations commonly held in our society. A Morehouse two-hand "do" is described and demonstrated. Students are welcome to ask questions of the woman while she is in orgasm as well as the person manually stimulating her. Students report that witnessing the demonstration expands their willingness to experience more pleasure in their own bodies. Following the demonstration there is a short closing session.

First time students receive a DVD of a coming demonstration: "How to Do a Woman"

More Socratic Dialogue (residential)

In the Socratic Dialogues of Plato, Socrates declared "that the unexamined life is not worth living." The More Socratic Dialogue (MSD) course was created to encourage students to extensively examine and communicate about all aspects of life. The course also applies the one no-vote system and the concept of perfection to everyday experiences, with the goal being fun.

This course provides residency in a Morehouse, where students participate in the social experiment of Morehouse. While living with others who embrace the concept of perfection, student participants practice the principles of the More Philosophy in their daily lives and have the opportunity to discuss and compare their findings with other students.

Prerequisite for longer-term residency: one course, an Evaluacy and consent of the Registrar.

Recommended: Basic Sensuality, Getting What You Want, and a Presentation

Third Mansion

During its 40 years of experience in pleasurable group living, Lafayette Morehouse has experimented with a variety of approaches to creating a lifestyle that actually suits the people who live it, including the ability to continue to explore and implement alternatives as times and desires change.

The Third Mansion course describes the results of these experiments so far. Among the topics addressed are: time, sex, money, child-raising in a community and how the group has evolved using the one no vote system.

You will have the opportunity to examine what worked for us (and what didn't) and select tools and options you may want to adopt or modify to create the group living situation of your dreams. This information applies to groups of two or more people.

Also included are some of the elements of life in the Morehouse community, including a party, boxing, tennis, swimming and an hour demonstration of a woman in orgasm. Concurrent enrollment in the More Socratic Dialogue residency course is available for those wishing to live at Lafayette.

This course is designed for a team of up to 4 people to take together. You will be introduced to all the ways we have found to pleasurably and successfully live communally.

Drawing on our more than 40 years of group living, we will answer your questions about the various ways, successful and not-so successful, that we have approached handling day to day life situations: from who is going to take out the garbage to pleasurably accomplishing communal goals to how best to gratify all the participants.

Advanced Courses



Man/Woman

From the moment of birth, the shape of your crotch determines your set of responsibilities, expectations, obligations, and your share of privileges -- our sexual prejudice has direct bearing, therefore on all our behaviors and expectations.

Man/Woman discusses male and female as socially created identities based upon a biological distinction. It examines the myths and realities underlying gender and describes the principles of a mutually rewarding male/female relationship. It also reveals the true status of the female, long obscured by sexual prejudice.

Hexing

Hexing is a conceptual game that people are playing unconsciously all the time to control and manipulate others' emotional responses. To the extent that you control hexing, you control your universe. The course shows you how to hex and bless deliberately in your communications to create desired effects. Through structured games you learn the power dynamics of social groups and how best to profit from any position. The history, technique, structure and application of hexing in various contexts are also examined. Even though its origins are in ancient ritual practices and it's commonly dismissed as obsolete mythology, hexing is widely practiced in modern society in such areas as advertising, politics, flirtation, medicine, religion, etc.

Love for Sale, Half-Price

Love has the highest emotional value in our culture, yet to most of us it is surrounded by mystery. Although we revere and desire it, most people feel out of control of it. Many hope their lives will be blessed with love.

At the same time, they fear that it may be elusive or too expensive to obtain, and too difficult to keep up. Many of us don't know how to have love be ever-expanding, without which it is likely to end in disappointment.

Love For Sale, Half-Price offers ways we have seen to bring the love you imagine into your life, at much less cost than you might have guessed, and to have it thrive and grow.

A Glimpse of Seeing

If you find yourself bumping into things in a dark room, you could... turn on the light! The Glimpse of Seeing is the light switch of life.

This 15-week course provides you with the tools to see more clearly and the opportunity to use them; to shine a bright light on your life and all that happens in it. Honing your ability to see life as it happens enables you to play your hand better and enjoy life more.

By analyzing common media forms like movies, television, advertising, and poetry, in addition to your own life and the lives of your buddies in the course, you will develop a more objective way of seeing yourself and the world around you.

There is homework for each session - done alone and collaboratively. Weekly writing assignments and a group project will serve to refine your ability to see.

The course sessions are held one evening a week, Thursdays, Feb. 23 to June 1, 7:30 pm.
The length of time for each session is determined by how long it takes - usually about three hours.

Students may anticipate spending approximately 10 hours/week on assignments outside the class.

Gift of Time: Looking with New Eyes

"Always remember to do everything you want to do. When death comes, you'll be relieved because you'll be so tired."

— Things I've Heard Vic Say, Volume V

It is a commonly held belief in our society that after a brief period of youth each of us is destined to a declining quality of life. The Gift of Time was originally written and presented by Dr. Victor Baranco in 1990 to consider life as an ever-expanding experience of good. Vic believed that this choice was available to anyone willing to hold alternative points of view.

Cindy Baranco has continued with the same keen observance of life so characteristic of Vic and has created an additional body of information on this subject. Cindy is particularly interested in the tendency of adults to act more and more genderless as they age and will present her ideas on having more of the sparkle of life by continuing to enjoy the fun of gender and maintaining sex as a possibility. She will describe how all the flavors of relationship and experiences you've dreamed of are available to you if you will look with new eyes at the people already in your life. This is a unique opportunity to hear Vic teach, along with Cindy's perspectives - both from years of living with him and from her personal and ongoing exploration of responsible hedonism.

In The Gift of Time, Vic said, "Everybody who's young is working and studying hard to get to be a good older." The prospect and subject of aging is pivotal to people of all ages.

The Gift of Time is a two-day video course. On Saturday we will present Vic in the original first sessions of the course. Sunday will be two sessions that were developed by Cindy & friends and recorded in March 2007.

The content and duration of the conversations are predicated by the interests of the students. Cindy answers questions and offers viewpoints on the practical application of the More Philosophy. With a deepened understanding of perfection, fresh perspectives are brought to the specific life situations of the participants.

A recording of the Audience sessions is provided so if they wish, students can review the info again and again at ever deeper levels of understanding.

Sunday with Cindy: the Crimp

"God did his last work on Saturday; it's been Cindy ever since...oops, I mean Sunday."

- Things I've Heard Vic Say, Volume V

Vic and Cindy actively continued their evolving research all the way to Vic's death. Since then, Cindy has gone on to illuminate Vic's insights by giving them the full balance of a feminine voice and adding her further observations.

Cindy has become increasingly aware that there are layers of understanding that continue to expand her experience of joy and fulfillment. In Sunday with Cindy she shares some of her conclusions to date. She describes those parts of her research that have resulted for her in personal breakthroughs in happiness, love, sexual pleasure and embracing change. Cindy shares the processes she has found effective in bringing about these increases so that anyone willing to do the work can reap this bounty as well.

A pivotal subject of the course is what Cindy has named "the crimp". She has found that this product of social prejudice affects and limits all aspects of the lives of both women and men. She has given this nearly invisible set of viewpoints a shape and will show that if a person is simply aware of the phenomenon a new level of liberation and light-heartedness becomes available.

Sunday with Cindy: the Crimp is a video presentation of the original course held in Oct. 2008.

Sunday with Cindy: Saying Yes to Pleasure

There is something in the air, the sense of a growing tide of energy and creativity. Years ago Vic predicted this, that there would come another wave similar to the one we caught and rode in the creation of Morehouse. This wave, used deliberately, offers even more opportunities for greater self expression - emotionally, sensually and spiritually. It's not a return to a former time but a new era of optimism and openings. There is a "yes" where there once was a "no."

We are coming out of a period when a primary social goal for women was to solidify their freedom and not be considered sex objects. In order to gratify women rather than offend them, men adjusted their behavior and denied their desires. This resulted in the dampening down of the urges and feelings of both men and women. It was an on-going process that we each manifested in our own unique and perfect way. This "no" limited fun, not only sexually, but in every way. There is a difference now. There is more freedom now for men and women to enjoy connecting with their own desires, more freedom to profoundly connect with others.

Sunday with Cindy: Saying Yes to Pleasure offers heightened awareness of the subtle shifts already taking place in your own perceptions and desires so that you can nourish them and have them grow, fully engaging you in the glorious adventure of your life. This is the true essence of "more", whatever your life choices are or have been. Cindy and friends will share the tools they have found for deepening intimacy and an ever increasing experience of pleasure.

Saying Yes to Pleasure with lab

Cindy Baranco's Saying Yes to Pleasure course, first presented live in March 2011, offers a description of how to have more love, fun and pleasure in all areas of life. Cindy identified a recent shift: there is now a "yes" where for a long time there had been a "no." This realization creates a renewed sense of optimism and the power to dramatically alter the perception of your whole life for the better. Cindy also described how to be interested and fully engaged in your relationships and in your life, making them more meaningful and fun.

The new five-week Saying Yes to Pleasure lab course is designed to be a transformative experience wherein you will gain more confidence and proficiency at using the tools and adopting the attitudes that guarantee ever-deepening intimacy in your life. With your partner and others interested in having the best life has to offer, you will watch the entire original information-dense course on video, spread out over four of the five weeks.

The homework assignments and subsequent classroom discussions are designed to open up lines of communication between you and your partner to strengthen and deepen your connection. Your thoughts and experiences have value and you will discover how to communicate them to bring about the intimacy that each of us craves. Seeing yourself and one another more clearly in an environment where you are each found right, will bring a new level of compassion to your relationship and make available unrecognized reserves of love.

In our experience of this process, if you are a couple who loves each other, the spark that you think may have diminished between you will rekindle (and maybe even burst into flames!) A significant friendship may become more meaningful than ever before.

Sharing the experiences of your journey in the classroom and on the confidential on-line student forum (limited to course participants) will create a support group with the same goals: having more fun and intimacy in life.

This course is open to couples who want a deeper sense of connection, or any two or three people who want to take this journey of self-realization together.

This course is available as a private couple's intensive where, with Cindy's direct guidance and personal attention, couples explore ways to more deeply connect with one another. This is a residential, immersive, tailor-made experience. To learn more, contact the Registrars.

Laboratory Courses



Advanced Sensuality

Advanced Sensuality is a hands-on laboratory course which gives you practical experience in applying information from Basic Sensuality. The course can be taken with or without a partner and provides you the opportunity to identify what pleases you sensually and to communicate that information in a winning way to another.

Advanced Fundamentals of Sensuality

Advanced Fundamentals of Sensuality explores sexual intercourse with the goal of heightening pleasure for both parties. Intercourse can be a profound, pleasurable and highly intimate experience when shared by equals, each going for their own pleasure with each stroke.

In order to deepen the enjoyment of this sexual act, students investigate winning attitudes, anatomy, engorgement, lubrication and communication. Lectures and in-class exercises combined with homework, encourage the students to explore their own sexual potential. The course reveals how participants are capable of feeling more themselves and of gratifying one another far beyond what they think possible.

Expansion of Sexual Potential

Explore pleasure in a clinical setting beyond your previous self-imposed limitations.

With time tested material and highly trained instructors, you will discover the expansive nature of your individual sexual potential. In private sessions tailored to you, concepts, techniques and approaches will be described and demonstrated. From either the cause or the effect position, you will experience hands-on training, doing a woman as discussed in the Basic Sensuality course.

Resistances to the expansion of your sexual potential are identified and appropriate methods for overcoming these barriers are demonstrated. This course provides you with viewpoints, skills and experiences that will lead to more fun in your sensual life, whether you are single or in a coupled relationship. You will be shown techniques for training partners. Safer sex practices are used. You will have sessions with members of the Sensuality Department, as well as homework assignments.

In the residential version, the course material is presented in a two-week, full time, live-in format at Lafayette Morehouse. The length of the non-residential version is agreed upon, according to your own situation, before the course begins.

This is a pass/fail course. To pass, you will demonstrate expansion of your sexual potential at a level accepted by members of the Sensuality Department.

Lafayette Morehouse has offered this course since 1987. Members of the Sensuality Department have participated in ongoing research and training in the presentation of this material.
