The purpose of this 7-day journey is that you can be deeply at home and happy being the man or woman that you are, find real intimacy in your sexual relationship(s), and enjoy all the gifts of living life vibrantly present in your whole being. The workshop processes and meditations are intimate journeys that guide you into an ever-expanding Yes to yourself. Your relationship with your body, your feelings, your energy and your male/female nature is gradually freed of the rejecting judgements you may have grown up with. Step by step you are able to restore and deepen your connection with your nature, reclaiming your sex as a precious aspect of your whole being. You grow in appreciation for the intrinsic innocence of your sexual feelings, and for the dynamic relationship between your desires and your personal boundaries. Celebration and healing come together: in your shame you find excitement; in your fears you find pleasure; in your judgements you find appreciation; in your wounds you find resources. Learning to befriend all that you are, you find yourself able to be fully present in your body, heart and soul.
- You become more vital, more sensual and more connected with your feelings and your heart
- You learn to enjoy your desire for intimate contact, to honour your personal boundaries, and to communicate both
- You learn how to grow playfully out of whatever fears, guilt, shame and restrictive beliefs spoil the pleasures of sexual loving for you.
Towards the end, in a two-day initiation ceremony, your sexual awakening is honoured as it should have been when you grew up. You are celebrated as a man or woman in a way that is intimate, ecstatic and profoundly healing. The entire workshop is designed to bring nature and spirit together in your being, so that you can live and love with grace, beauty and presence.
