Workshop description: This workshop examines how cultural, familial, and religious understandings around sex, sexuality, and self can interrupt the life force connection to our sexual centers. Rooted in the wisdom of Tantra and neuroscience, this workshop will guide people on how to form a sacred relationship with their body, sexuality, and turn on, giving them the deep and sexy connection they’ve been yearning for. Combined with lecture, we will utilize sexual embodiment practices to demonstrate how to shed shame, guilt, fear, resistance, trauma and other blocks around our sexuality to fully awaken, reclaim, and embrace our sexual power and energy. When we are connected to our sexual selves, we are connected to ALL aspects of ourselves: heart, soul, body, mind, and spirit. This workshop will kick-off an 8 week class series on igniting our sexual awakening. All practices will be optional and practiced solo within a safe container, with consent and fully clothed.
