This program offers up to 16 AASECT CEs*. This program also offers up to 16 CEUs for LPC, LMFT, and LCSW.

Join us on MAY 18-19TH (up to 16 CEs) to learn about Sex Outside the Lines including ways to enhance pleasure, tolerate more intimacy, heal simple sexual trauma, and reduce body and sex shame. Most sex therapies keep us trapped in our heads and never help get us fully into our body or sexuality. Great sex and full intimacy is about letting go, surrendering to our whole body, and staying out of our heads. The problem with standard “mindfulness” is it’s disembodied, and it keeps you in your head, because it's not a true body based practice.  Disembodied people doing mindfulness stay disembodied. Thus far mindfulness applied to sex doesn’t address or undue (sexual or body) shame or simple trauma either. 

THIS TRAINING CAN HELP PEOPLE GAIN:

1. A better understanding of the sexual body, 2. Improved sexual and body communication skills, 3. Use of sex as a tool to connect, 4. Learning about your authentic sexual self, 5. Sexual and body confidence, 6. Removal of sexual anxieties, 7. Increased sexual pleasure, 8. Increased tolerance for intimacy.
