Reclaiming the Erotic: Conception, Pregnancy, & Birth

Somatic Birth.jpg

A hands-on weekend birth workshop focused on erotic education and sexual wellness and centered around an inclusive, trauma-informed exploration of the sexual nature of conception, pregnancy & birth. 

ALL pregnant/conceiving people, their partner(s), & birth plans welcome.

This somatic (body-based), hands-on workshop focuses on the inherent and physiological sexual nature of conception and birth and is based on principals of erotic education and sexual wellness for all people around the perinatal period. The intention of this workshop is to re-imagine the connection between orgasmic/erotic states in pleasure and birth experiences and to provide tools and space for hands on practice to create connection and intimacy--within a non-judgmental container. This workshop is consent-based, trauma-informed, and welcoming and supportive of all families and their birth preferences!

Wheel of Consent

Wheel of Consent

body painting.jpg

We are at a time of collective unraveling of ancestral, cultural and personal trauma in our bodies. 

At the heart of this unraveling lies a tremendous amount of confusion around the nature of consent— what it actually is — and how we consciously or unconsciously traverse in or out of the boundaries of it with our own bodies and in our relationships with others.

This class is grounded in the foundational work of Betty Martin’s Wheel of Consent. Using the Wheel as a framework, we will map the landscape of consent through Giving and Receiving touch with the intention of mindful awareness, honoring, trust and communication.

With a deeper understanding and practice of embodied consent...
...we learn how to trust both our boundaries and our desires
...we gain greater fluency in asking for what we truly want from others
...we can more clearly identify common reasons we operate out of consent (including habitual patterns, held religious trauma, institutionalized systems of oppression and power)

And, ultimately…
...we gain access to more choices for ourselves in our bodies and in our relationships.
