In our society and culture, discussions about sex is a taboo topic. Many of us carry shame, fear, unresolved traumas and hurt related to our sexuality. Current discussions, particularly for women, are focused on women as sex objects leaving out the heart, soul and mind of a woman. In fact, many women learn about their sexuality through the media, magazines or their peers. The missing element is that sexuality is multifaceted and necessary to explore all aspects in order to heal and/or reclaim. Fortunately, we have the ability to REWRITE our story.
Gathering in circle to explore our sexual identity and expression grants us the opportunity to connect more deeply with the body’s truth, the voice of our heart and the yearning of our soul. I invite you to join me on April 9th to explore all components of our sexuality: Body, Heart, Mind, and Spirit. Through writing prompts and sharing (optional), we will explore each dimension of our sexual self.
“There are many pathways that reconnect the personal to the political, the spiritual and the sexual. There are no authorities, hierarchies, or gurus. Empowerment comes from within, the connection to the life force.” -Elenor Gadon
