This two part workshop is designed for any woman interested in developing an intimate relationship with herself and her body as a base from which all other relationships can grow. This intimacy includes: understanding your sexual anatomy and how it works, addressing body shame, learning to touch yourself with the grace and love with which you would touch a new lover, orgasm techniques for optimum pleasure, self awareness and being vulnerable in a trusted space. This learning is based on my own journey towards self discovery as well as training under NY based Sex Educator’s Betty Dodson and Carlin Ross. This workshop will mimic a sacred circle ritual of sisterhood that has been around for centuries. In looking inward, sharing our stories, and through loving touch, a burden within ourselves will be lifted.
-Arrive and take your place in the circle. Introductions.
-Sharing Circle – Masturbation/self loving history and Body issues and shame.
-Admiring the beauty and diversity of the vulva – photo and art display showing the variety in women’s genitalia. Brief overview of anatomy diagrams to help better understand our primary sex organ, the clitoris, and its complexity.
-Vulva show and tell – Live demonstration where I lead, an already chosen volunteer, in displaying her vulva. ( Labia, vagina, urethra, clitoris) Understanding the functions of our sexual anatomy and recognizing the beauty in our diversity is an important step in dealing with negative body image and optimizing our pleasure.
-Questions and discussion.
-Loving touch – learn the art of sensate focus self touch. This will be a non sexual activity with clothes on. Divide into groups and everyone will get the chance to feel the power of this healing touch from another.

Remember that this is new for all of us and feeling scared and vulnerable is normal and expected. Everyone who comes to the workshop will sign a confidentiality agreement to ensure that everything stays in the circle. While this may be emotional, I can promise that it will be fun and there will be laughter as well! Please email me with any concerns or questions you may have. Nothing is off limits or silly to ask.
Please wear comfortable clothes with preferably short sleeves so that you have some skin exposed for touch. I look forward to seeing you in the circle!
