Introduction Somatic Sexology

Change your way of experiencing intimacy, radically.

  • Would you enjoy a safely held space to simply explore your sexuality?
  • Do you feel that we all deserve much more pleasure and joy?
  • Are you an erotic explorer who views sexuality as an ongoing learning and development opportunity?
  • Are you interested in the 8-day Somatic Sexology Training but want to get a taste of it first before committing to the full training?

Then this is for you!

This weekend workshop is based on the methods of Sexological Bodywork and other bodywork practices.

Sexological Bodywork supports people in discovering and expanding their sexual potential on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. In this weekend workshop, you get the opportunity to refine your body awareness, intensify your somatic sensations, and deepen your relationship to your sexual self. Through direct experiential and process-oriented learning methods, you are invited to cultivate your own authentic sexual self and give it unique and natural expression.

Focus of the weekend

  • Erotic embodiment: Develop a more body-connected sexuality and become more fully available and present to sensory and sensual experience.
  • Erotic empowerment: Expand your erotic horizons and confidence while compassionately including your current erotic realities, fears and insecurities.
  • Erotic exploration: Discover your own unique map to pleasure and feeling, while also deepening and expanding intimacy in relationship.

The basis of our journey together is intentional and consensual whole-body touch in both giving and receiving roles, breathwork, meditation, communication practices, as well as creative body expression.

Examples of content included in the weekend (with some descriptions below):

  • Authentic self-love practice
  • Self-empowerment massage
  • Genital mapping, massage & meditation techniques
  • Movement & body-based expression
  • Conscious touch & body awareness
  • Breathwork techniques

Authentic self-love practice
A series of consciously practised self-love exercises that cultivate erotic mindfulness and the ability to be present in the body, and also in contact with different states of arousal. We include an approach borrowed from Authentic Movement that assists in dissolving limiting habits and deepening the erotic experience.

Self-empowerment massage
A form of massage in which the touch is guided entirely by the person receiving it. This allows for a somatic experience of self-determined as well as self-affirming sexuality and intimacy.

Genital mapping, massage & meditation techniques
Techniques that help us become more familiar with our own bodies and their erotic potential (e.g. body mapping, vaginal-penile and anal mapping). Playful exploration spaces that support us to develop a language for the way we want to be touched. Meditative experiential spaces in which we work with intentional yet goalless genital touch to practice detaching from goal-oriented orgasmic experience.
