Date: canceled Time:  Number of sessions: 1 day only! Members: $30 Nonmembers: $36 Location: San Diego Writers, Ink, ARTS DISTRICT Liberty Station, 2730 Historic Decatur Road, Barracks 16, 2nd Floor Above Women's Museum, San Diego, CA 92106

In our society and culture, discussions about healthy sexuality is a taboo topic. Many of us carry shame, fear, unresolved traumas and hurt related to our body and sexuality. The unattainable standard of beauty that pervades the media and advertisements leaves girls and women feeling shameful and “not good enough.” 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 females develop a distorted body/self image and typically, both men and women, learn about their sexuality through the media, magazines or their peers. The missing element is that our intimate connection with self (to develop a healthy self image) and developing a healthy sexual identity entails exploring all aspects of self: body, heart, mind and spirit. Fortunately, we have the ability to REWRITE our story.

Gathering in women’s circles to explore our mind-body-soul connection and sexual identity 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 December 10th to explore intimacy with YOURSELF first. Through writing prompts and sharing (optional), we will explore each layer of intimacy and connection with your sexual self.

You will learn the following:

1) The elements of intimacy with self and others
2) Ways to heal religious and cultural sexual shame
3) The importance of connecting with your heart, body and feminine soul
4) The GODDESSES journey to awaken all parts of your journey as a woman

“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
