Health, well-being, and intimate relationships are profoundly affected by sexual concerns. Yet too many health professionals lack specific training to help their clients overcome feelings of sexual inadequacy and move beyond blocks to desire and pleasure. This course looks beyond physical performance goals to explore underlying emotional and spiritual dynamics of sexual experience. Our interactive model incorporates ritual, movement, concrete structure, and the importance of boundaries.
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.
