All of us work with clients who have experienced sexual trauma as a child, sexual assault as adults, with couples who grapple with sexual incompatibilities, or people who struggle with sexual identity, body image and just generally resist being in their bodies.
This workshop is designed to tackle just these issues, and aimed at helping practitioners acquire a variety of new and effective tools to best serve these clients—even the toughest ones. Introducing material not covered in the SE training.
The program is aimed at increasing awareness, aliveness and pleasure in our whole bodies. It looks at developmental imprints and other formative influences that interrupt a clear, stress-free relationship with ourselves as fully embodied sexual/sensual beings. It offers transformative experiential practices for all levels of interest—for self-exploration and personal enhancement, healing sexual abuse, as well as providing useful strategies for therapists working with sexuality and trauma. It is open to anyone desiring to learn more about sexuality from a somatic/social/cultural, psychological or physiological perspective.
This workshop will offer the latest in our new material on expanding erotic potential and pleasure. We step away from emphasizing trauma for now, and take a deeper and more playful look at exploring our healthy, erotic capacity. A full 5 day program. Bring your spouses and partners!
Join Ariel and Tom for our first 6-day residential retreat where we present our newest material on embodied sexuality. Next January, in the astonishing beauty of Costa Rica, we explore three powerful and effective avenues to deepen sexual pleasure and intimacy: sensuality, shadow and transcendence.
Join Ariel for three powerful, yet gentle days that will transform your relationship to your body and your sexuality.
This workshop is primarily experiential, and is aimed at healing the shame that both men and women carry from countless generations of negative messages about sex, the body and gender, whether they’re cultural, religious or intergenerational. Introducing the latest in somatic sex therapy and sexuality research, it is designed for anyone who desires a deep and lasting change. It supports therapists in working with sexuality trauma in their practices, however it is also appropriate for anyone interested in personal exploration. Clinicians, this is your chance to bring, or refer your friends, clients, colleagues and intimates.
