With Zoë Kors
As women, we play many roles: partners, wives, daughters, bosses, employees, mothers. We deliver, nurture, manage, and please. We are accomplished jugglers, master manifestors; we make things happen. To perform these many roles effectively, we contain, conform, and control our feelings, our words, our behavior. As a matter of survival we adapt to a culture that values our rational minds. In the process we become alienated from our innate, intuitive nature, often feeling unseen, unappreciated, and misunderstood. When we lose our sense of self in this way, we suffer in our relationships. We get angry; and we shut down. Our confidence takes a hit, along with our self-esteem, self-care, and our precious sex lives—the very thing that should be our source of power.
There are many things that shape our sexuality without us even realizing it. From the time we are young girls, we receive a constant stream of mixed messages about our sexuality. With all noise interfering, it’s nearly impossible to cultivate a healthy relationship with a very tender part of ourselves. We are given little context for our identities as sexual creatures. And yet, it is exactly this expression that spawns life and sustains humanity—lest we forget, the survival of the species depends on women wanting to have sex.
Through a sequence of guided meditation, breathwork, discussion, and partner work, we will reinvent our sexual identity, first by shifting the way we think about sex, and then reorient the way our body experiences pleasure. We will deconstruct our relationship with our sexuality, find the truths that we have internalized that don’t actually belong to us, and extract and release what stands in the way of our most authentic expression. We will rediscover our essential sensual nature and reinvent our relationship with our bodies as divining rods to the sacred feminine.
