Creating Mindful Sexual Experiences

Feb 16 - 18, 2018 Begins in 2 months
with Chelom Leavitt

Do you feel that your sexual experiences are missing something or leave you longing for greater connection? Mindful sex explores the depths of sexual emotion and commitment. This retreat for couples provides an opportunity to deepen your sexual expressions of love. Negative or hurtful notions about sex from our culture, media, or our own distorted thoughts impact our body perceptions and sexual experiences. This workshop addresses unhealthy influences and opens a new practice of gentle, connecting sexual experience and vision.
