Our bodies and their instincts are constantly being manipulated for marketing purposes and control tactics. Many of us have suffered extremely for, and in, our sexual desires and identities. Still more of us carry heavy burdens of shame and fear in our bodies that have simply been inherited from religious and cultural norms which seek to divorce our humanness from our “goodness.” Patriarchy and oppression function in large part by controlling our desires and repressing our empowerment.
Intentional and conscious sexual empowerment goes beyond “sex,” in fact, this kind of work has more to do with how we each carry ourselves as powerful individuals in the world. This is about our vital energy and life force, our ability to assert and advocate for our needs and desires, and our sense of safety and belonging in a world that is largely fearful and asleep to this energy in general. In this session we'll focus on somatic practice and meditation that heals, builds, sustains and balances sexual energy (kundalini.) Throughout the session will be opportunities to write and draw. At the end of the session will be an opportunity for group discussion and co-authoring of a collective statement of intent and/or manifesto for sexual healing.
The space we hold together for this workshop is a safe space that honors all orientations and identities. All the work we do will be focus on the internal and personal experience. Any opportunities for sharing or discussion are optional. I encourage participants to contact me beforehand if I should be aware of any personal biography or trauma that needs special special attention or increased sensitivity.
