This class will offer theoretical models, group discussion, self-discovery and application in a safe, yet challenging, atmosphere of mutual wisdom and exploration. This course is designed to be a foundational component to begin clinical work with sexual health issues.
- Explore your own sexual identity including family of origin beliefs/values, experiences, and cultural diversity to help you become a healing presence for others' concerns around sexuality
- Explore the mystery of human sexuality as a doorway into what it means to be human
- Explore the erotic as a means to discover and integrate our shadow and to claim the full range of our humanity
- Develop a sense of what it means to bring mindfulness to sexuality, exploring the question of what mindful sexuality is and why it might be important to you and your clients
