Erotic Insights

Your relationship with the erotic in you

Have you ever wished you could experience yourself more fully as a sensual, sexual being? Do you long for more spark and renewal in your intimate relationships — with yourself or others?

Linked with creativity, vitality and emotional closeness, the erotic is both complex and paradoxical. It is much more than sex, yet we seldom investigate its role in our health or lives. Using gentle curiosity, we will engage in discussion and exercises to explore our relationship with sensuality and the erotic. There will be time for reflection — privately and in groups.

This workshop is for you if you are a woman aged 19 to 99 of any sexual orientation, partnered or un-partnered, playful or reticent about this topic. The session does not include sexual touching or explicit material. Your emotional safety is paramount. Although the topic is relevant to men as well, this particular workshop is for women only.

The Skinny: 3 things you will get from this session

  • Explore the role of the erotic in personal healing and growth
  • Understand limiting judgments, fears or expectations that may operate in the realm of the erotic
  • Connect with what is important to you in your relationship with the erotic
