Workshop Details

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.
During this workshop for women of all ages and sexual and spiritual orientations, we create a safe, confidential environment where you can learn innovative ways to create heart-to-heart communication, expand your capacity for love, creativity, and compassion, transcend guilt, shame, and “good-girls-don’t” messages, and heal the wounds of violence, abuse, and compulsivity. We merge the latest research with women’s stories, shamanic journeying, and sacred ceremony in the Esalen hot springs. Our work together is based on the following three principles.
• The core power of sexual connection is its ability to transform our lives — at any age, with or without a partner
• Erotic satisfaction begins with self-esteem
• A supportive circle of women sharing information about sex can be life changing
Please bring two objects to our first session — one to represent an aspect of your sexual story you want to keep, the other to represent an aspect you want to move beyond. You’ll introduce yourself with these objects, and take them home with you.
Recommended reading: Ogden, The Heart and Soul of Sex, The Return of Desire, and Women Who Love Sex.
