What happens often is that we are unable to identify exactly what our expectations are when it comes to physical intimacy, what we would like them to be, and define healthy guidelines for both exploration and safety. This leads to falling into harmful patterns and/or tolerating less than adequate experiences because it may be all that we’ve known or the best we can create for ourselves. It’s time to shift perspectives.
SEX (ID) is a discussion and behavioral therapy based learning group provides an opportunity to improve emotional health surrounding physical intimacy. Participants will identify their sexual persona, find where their values land within contemporary culture, recognize obstacles to embodying their own ideals, and create a personal practice to build better habits.
In this workshop we learn:
- How to recognize take ownership of our sexuality
- How to avoid creating false expectations
- How to envision a healthy sexual practice
- How to build good habits to maintain sexual health
