Erotic Insights: Exploring the relationship with the erotic (Women Only) March 4, 2018, 2:30 - 5 pm
Workshops aim to provide a welcoming space where personal awareness, clarity, and authenticity can develop**.
This half-day workshop is for women* of any age over 19; any sexual orientation; un-partnered or partnered; sexually active or not; playful or reticent about this topic.
- Have you ever wished you could experience your self more fully as a sensual being?
- Do you long for more spark and renewal in your intimate relationships?
- Would you like to be less influenced by judgments, fears or limiting expectations?
Using gentle curiosity, we will engage in discussion and experiential exercises to explore our connection with sensuality and eroticism in a small gathering of women. There will be "time-in" for reflection on your own, as well as pairs and group activities (no sexual touch).
Linked with creativity, vitality and emotional closeness, ‘the erotic’ is multifaceted, complex, sometimes paradoxical, and entwined with unique meanings for each one of us. It is much more than sex. Yet we seldom delve into its mysteries or investigate its role in our health and in our life journeys. Wherever you are in your lifespan, this is an opportunity to deepen your understanding and to befriend your “erotic self”.
*This workshop is for people who presently live as women and who have had the experience of being socialized as a "girl" or "woman". It is not meant to exclude men or trans - rather, to create a particular space to engage with those experiences. If this designation does not fit for you, please ask Alina about "Dialogues with 'The Erotic' - Seen and Unseen".
**These services are not psychotherapy. Consider having resources for emotional support i.e. counselor, psychotherapy, empathetic friends with good listening skills - to reach out to after workshops. Also consider journaling or other methods that work for you, to help companion you in your growth journeys.
