CE Hours: 14
How is it to be a person in your sexual/erotic body self in a positive way? How can our natural being of Eros, the life force, impact others without abuse or power but from the flowing of our excitement of being alive? How can we bless or own our energetic self rather than live in shame and fear? In this workshop we will explore how to use and celebrate our energy and decrease the corresponding shame which often impedes our sense of embodiment. We will do this through movement exercises, meditations, and journaling and group discussion. The emphasis in this workshop is for participants to develop awareness of how to use their own energy and flow in complimentary support of others.
