Real Sex: Awaken your erotic intelligence
We have a deep yearning for love and aliveness in our body, yet our culture has hijacked sexuality with commercialism, pornography and performance pressure. So, how do we recapture the purity of our sexual self? How can we transform sex from something we do to a state of being? How can we have Real Sex?
On this deep, therapeutic journey you will be guided into the heart of your sexual self, a way of creating meaningful and fulfilling intimacy. You will discover the seven keys to awaken your erotic intelligence and teach you to love and accept your mind, body, feelings, desires and sexuality at a deeper level, leaving behind feelings of guilt, insecurity and shame.
Based on our book Real Sex: Why everything you learnt about sex is wrong (Hay House 2017) you will reconnect with the true meaning of sex and intimacy at a deep level. Through exercises and shared wisdom you will reawaken to your potential for love, joy and pleasure. You will begin to understand the power of embodied presence, of clean, not just clear, communication and a subtle sensitivity that will connect you with the potential of sex.
Please note this is a therapeutic workshop, aimed at personal development. There is no nudity or sexual activity in this workshop.
