Gina Ogden, PhD, LMFT,
is a sex therapist, researcher, and shamanic practitioner who leads workshops internationally. She conducted the only nationwide survey on sexuality and spirituality (ISIS). Her latest books are Women Who Love Sex, The Heart and Soul of Sex, and The Return of Desire.
How can we set the stage for relational magic? This is our central question as we step onto shamanic paths, which offer unique opportunities for healing the traumas and dramas that can distort all kinds of relationships — with lovers, friends, parents, children, and more. Using a multidimensional approach developed over four decades as a sexuality therapist, researcher, author, and shamanic practitioner, Gina Ogden invites you to connect expansively with yourself, others, and the planet.
Health, well-being, and intimate relationships are profoundly affected by sexual issues, yet most health professionals lack adequate training to help clients. This workshop brings emotional and spiritual consciousness to the practice of sex therapy. It offers an innovative model for exploring a wide range of situations and dynamics, and provides opportunities for case consultation about desire, pleasure, dysfunction, and more. Its structure encourages personal awareness along with clinical questions and networking opportunities.
The route to sexual pleasure and intimacy is like the route to any other of life’s mysteries. It means exploring new emotional landscapes. It means opening your wild, precious, vulnerable self to nature, divine presence, and the profound wisdom of your body. It means daring to know what you want.
