Erotic energy is far more than sexual energy. It is a resource available to us at all times. It is about living – grounded in an authentic and fully embodied vibrant expression and intimate relating. As our culture has engendered splits between mind and body, heart and pelvis and sexuality and spirituality, we have forgotten what it means to be fully alive. As we have become disconnected from our bodies, we have lost touch with many pleasures and experiences possible in being human.
In this training, we will explore the essence of what it means to be a woman, beautiful and sensual, and the myths, stories and rules that influence how we presence ourselves in the world. We will honor our natural feminine rhythm, as we soften our hearts and bellies. We will wake up our bodies through sensory awareness, breath, touch, movement and dance, deepening into erotic sensuality. We will look at our curiosities, hang-ups and relationship with pleasure, self worth and desirability. We will transform our shame, guilt and fear into possibility.
As women we are trained to be givers, often struggling with receiving. We will cultivate practices for developing receptors, meeting the aliveness of the other and being fully present with our clients. We awaken our passion, pleasure and enough-ness, thus allowing the erotic field to breathe more life into everything we do.
