This evening invites you to connect with the whole of yourself your sexuality, your heart, your energetic body and your intuition. Self love and self compassion are two of the greatest gifts we can give to ourselves. If you have attended this event before, please join us again as practice really does allow to to understand and connect to your body more and it can take time to learn to do this. Format is going to be a bit different to the last event.
In this experiential evening you will learn about somatics, orgasmic yoga practice - mindful self pleasuring or masturbation. We will share with you information and practical exercises including breathwork, somatic movement, full body stimulation, different kinds of genital touch, understanding masturbation habitual patterning and how to change it. We will have some demos and you will have the opportunity to practice. You will learn how to build your own daily practice based on breath, sound and movement, touch, focus , pelvic floor muscle engagement, intention and moving sexual energy around the entire body. We will then have a practice session with an orgasmic yoga meditation. This is a clothed event.
OYP is a technique used by sexological Bodyworkers and was development primarily by Joseph Kramer.
Why self pleasuring?
A major part in our suffering is that we have become accustomed to being co-dependent. We make telepathic agreements to be responsible for the other persons peace, pleasure, fulfillment and wholeness. Any other way of celebrating our unique, potent and perfect being is veiled with guilt and shame. By changing our belief system that we are whole, and that love, joy and fulfillment is all to be found within each of us, we create a healthy foundation of self esteem, confidence and worthiness.
The goal is to take responsibility for my own life and pleasure,and thrive as a human being, rather than feeling dependent on someone else
Based on Authentic Movement, Self Pleasuring (masturbation) Practice is an astonishingly practice that supports you to break free of limiting habits, established masturbation patterns and to go deep into erotic experience.
The primary focus is to assist men and woman to access ecstatic, transformational states through erotic self touch. Change the way you masturbate - change your life!
What is a Sexological Bodyworker?
Sexological Bodyworkers are somatic sex educators, supporting individuals, couples and groups to learn to direct their own erotic development, learn about their bodies, sex and sexuality, or work through sexual issues or concerns.
We offer experiential learning opportunities that consciously access profound ecstatic and erotic states. Our teaching involves a variety of instructive modalities, including breathwork, touch, erotic massage, pelvic release work, scar tissue remediation, and Orgasmic Yoga coaching.
One of the somatic realms that Sexological Bodyworkers introduce to our students is a state of arousal that is free of fantasy, unfinished emotional business, religious dogma, cultural caveats and habitual sexual behaviors. In this meditative state, an individual becomes aware of the body as a source of wisdom and freedom. One of the ways to access this fecund state is by actively receiving a Taoist Erotic Massage. Helping others access and make use of a variety of erotic states is foundational to the education we offer.
