Areas of Focus:
Physical Embodiment and Sexual Somatics
Embodiment means cultivating awareness of the felt inner sense of one’s own body. For a woman this means consciously experiencing her own breath, the tension and relaxation of her muscles and organs, and on the subtlest level, awareness of the pulsing energy that flows within her. Erotic embodiment includes all of this as well as cultivating awareness of and psychically inhabiting the inner space of her breasts, vulva, vagina, cervix, and—if she has one—her physical womb. By resting our awareness inside our physical body we come home to ourselves, developing a sense of security that can only be experienced through our own presence in the moment.
Exploring the Energy of Desire
When desire is unexamined, it can wreak havoc in our lives, leaving us either unconsciously manipulating others to get what we want or suppressing our real needs, leaving us always hungry for more. Yet as we bring conscious awareness to desire, we can get in touch with our innermost passion, the spark of spirit itself. We learn to nourish ourselves and attend to our real needs, while also cultivating detachment from what binds us.
Making Invitations & Setting Boundaries: Conscious Communication in Sex & Relationship
Learn to know what you like and practice warmly and clearly inviting another to touch you in ways that please and open you. Gain access to your authentic “yes’ by learning to clearly say “no” to undesired connection. Explore the four dynamics of touch exchanges–giving, receiving, taking, and allowing–and experience the particular joys of each element.
About Trauma & Abuse—Overt and Subtle
Some women that come to this work carry a history of trauma or abuse. Sometimes this is overt, such as in the case of rape or assault. More frequently, it is far subtler, the result of daily living in families or communities where the feminine is disrespected, threatened, misunderstood, and suppressed.
With this subtle form of trauma it is common for us as women to mistakenly believe that since we can’t pinpoint a specific traumatic event, then our fears, shame, anxiety, and depression are all our own doing, a sign pointing to some internal flaw we must surely possess. This is the lie we can undo together as women.
The way toward greater self-love and healing is each woman’s personal responsibility, but doesn’t need to be a solo venture. The first step is often to recognize the impact of the environments we’ve lived within, and to stop blaming ourselves for the state of affairs in which we find ourselves. It is only after we have done so that we can step out of being victims of our societies and step into actively participating in and creating relationships, families, workplaces, and organizations that nourish us at the deepest level.
