"A really amazing workshop that used many ways to explore ourselves. Lots of tears and lots of laughter. Thank you"
The heart/sexuality split. When open hearted vitality is allowed to flow freely through the body, we feel alive, sensual, passionate and able to give and receive authentic love. If this natural flow has been severely met with disapproval, rejection or detrimental responses, the heart desensitises, splitting off from the body. This numbing from the pain also stops us from feeling self-love, pleasure and intimately opening up to another.
What the workshop involves. In order to heal the split we need to listen sensitively to the body's story, this involves embodying the heart. Over the weekend this story will emerge through the work we do using movement, bodywork, pair work, group sharing and creativity. Some of the areas covered will be intimacy, boundaries, touch, shame and pleasure. The weekend will involve some exploration around sexuality within a contained, safe space where boundaries will be completely respected and valued at all times.
