Workshop Details

As women we have a unique power of creativity in our reproductive systems. That power is used not only to create new life, but also to bring personal projects into being. However, that energy can be blocked by physical, emotional or spiritual trauma to the pelvic floor and the female organs. This workshop for women uses guided imagery, movement and hands-on exercises (while clothed) to heal the pelvic floor, including the vagina and uterus, places that often hold our deepest wounds: sexual abuse, rape, abortions, surgeries, childbirth tearing and scars, self-esteem and negative images about our femininity. Because self-knowledge is important, scientific and anatomic information will be presented, as well as ongoing self-care using pelvic floor yoga and abdominal massage.

This workshop offers a rare opportunity for deep healing. During these seven days you can experience new possibilities for renewed feminine energy, greater health and a deeper sense of pleasure in being a woman. We will spend time exploring nature and how our connection to the earth can deepen our connection to ourselves. The workshop will culminate with an evening of nurturing at the Esalen natural hot spring baths. This course is valuable for anyone who wants to learn alternative approaches to women’s health. Note: This workshop is for women only. All self-identifying women are welcome.
