Holding presence when touching another human being can change our experience from mind numbing to mind blowing. Building a stronger connection between our genitals and heart, supports us to accept and allow feelings of vulnerability within our experiences of intimacy and sexual arousal.
During this workshop we will begin with an embodied meditation. We will learn how to hold presence within our touch and you will receive simple instructions and a demonstration. What follows is an opportunity to give and receive a partnered touch session, building upon your capacity to hold presence in you touch. The focus of your awareness will be the touch you are giving and receiving.
This is a personal development workshop that will be an unclothed space and will involve full body touch (Including genitals). If you have any discomfort in being touched, this particular workshop may not be your best option.
You will need to be able to sit on the floor and touch a person for extended periods of time, so please be aware of any injuries that may affect these activities before booking.
In this workshop you will be working in pairs, these pairs will be chosen randomly on the night, unless you arrive at the workshop already in your pair.
