THIS IS A 2 DAY WORKSHOP September 23-24, 2017

This in-depth, 2 day experiential workshop will explore ideas and possible methods for working with clients or creating workshops/educational experiences from a holistic viewpoint. How can we incorporate (embody) learning with the use of dance, authentic movement, poetry, music, personal sharing, art or other methods?  How can we translate these ideas into methods and skills for a very powerful, transformational experience for those we serve?

Join us as we re-define ways to examine pleasure, sex, orientation, gender identity, and relationship style. 

Through movement, exercises, discussions, and skills practice, participants will explore these ideas in depth together as we begin to define a new field. You will have the opportunity to craft your own holistic exercises and activities with respect to various populations while addressing specific topics within sex education. You will gain input and feedack from quality peers in the field as well as from highly-qualified, expert instructors. Join us for an exciting creative process and collaboration that you will never forget!
