A month-long support and learning about the health and well being of our sexual energy, our sexual health, how it relates to the pelvic floor, hips, and our need for touch and connection. This month is specifically geared to where we all are in relation to this end of Summer-step into Fall, re-connecting to life that is not quite normal from this extended difficult period of Quarantine and Pandemic that has left many of us traumatized and re-traumatized in multiple ways and how that relates to our sexual energy, sexual health, and our relationships of all levels that include touch, affection, and sexual connection. We will learn tools and discuss how to care for ourselves as we re-emerge slowly and carefully from this period of various levels of isolation—for each of us it has been and continues to be different. Many of us have been living what we might call--touch-deprived lives, not only sexually but all levels of touch. -- And on top of that the future --politics and economics are still in question and all of this is affecting our pelvic, and sexual health and well being.
This coaching month is a support system and container for what arises in this state and how we can love ourselves and be as juicy as we would aspire in this time of great change and uncertainty and as we step back into connection from this period of disconnection that is still lingering around us.
This coaching and support program is open to all genders, cis, binary and non-binary, singles, and partnered individuals.
The program consists of four once a week two-hour sessions where we learn and practice sexual health care, breath, yoga, movement, and imagery to care for our sexual organs, our pelvic floor, and our sexual energy as it relates to our whole being. Our sexual organs and energy are intricately connected to all of ourselves, our creativity, our joy and pleasure, and our need and desire for connection. Human touch is a need, as real and as important to our health as water, food, and air. In these sessions, we will journal and dialogue with our bodies and one another about how to best cope with the residual effects of the absence of touch from our extended quarantine. We will talk about ourselves as our best and first lovers of our own bodies and sexuality. Topics will include--spicing up self-loving, self-loving as a meditation, self-loving as an act of self-love and self-care, self-loving for lubrication and pelvic health, vaginal steaming (and steaming for male genital bodies!!), self-massage, breathing into the pelvic bowl, and sharing touch virtually and through movement.
The sessions will be two hours on Tuesdays 2-4. There will be a 30-minute coaching call Friday mornings at 10AM (time may change to accommodate the group) that will consist of a meditation and a paired sharing on the topics of the week.
At this point in the lingering of the Pandemic, all of us are living in a communal trauma, so for many of us, our old traumas are surfacing to be faced again. It is a time when we need more self-care than ever. As part of this program, each individual will also schedule and receive a private session with Marisa of Counseling and Intuitive Reiki on the pelvic organs, sexual energy, and all related topics.
The price for the program includes the four two hour sessions, the four check-in meditation calls and the private session. All sessions will be recorded and can be watched at a later day.
Bring a pen and notebook. Have yoga blocks, and yoga blankets, or pillows of various sizes available.
