Your Body Is A Beacon
The Erotic (Eros), is a profound quality of aliveness, the stream of Life that flows uniquely through each of us. It is the manifestation of your embodied presence - sensuous, connected & anchored within body wisdom.
Through a myriad of social & cultural conditioning, our Erotic intelligence has been relegated into the shadows (the unconscious) or limited to the realm of superficial pleasure, sexuality & sensuality.
When we sexualize, repress, or project our erotic essence outwards, we can become disconnected from its potential. We are severed from our innate body wisdom, This causes the erosion of our confidence, self worth, empowerment & inner authority.
Reclaiming our erotic sovereignty is life-affirming. It effotlessly inspires us to take responsibility for ourselves, our bodies and our fulfilment.
Through erotic empowerment, the Somatic Erotic Educator training invites you to ask, & discover
How can I deeply belong to myself & thrive in loving service to the world as an embodied, erotically sovereign woman?
This training is about relating from our direct, embodied and felt experience.
Using trauma informed tools, we look honestly at what contributes to our shadow, and where we need to develop our own sovereignty and relational skills.
By redefining and exploring the erotic, we discover a new depth of relaxation, arousal and ease within the body, grounding ourself in a direct experience of Being. In this way we listen and hold ourselves, others and all of life with presence and relate from a mature and embodied space.
This training does not teach you how to be like your teachers, rather it offers you the space, deconditioning and resources to inhabit your unique erotic identity, develop your inner knowing and live the unique expression of who you are meant to be.
This initiation into erotic intelligence is for you if
you want to
-Feel more comfortable & at ease in your own skin
-Feel total trust in life & yourself.
-Feel confident to express yourself free from shame
-No longer need external validation to determine your self worth
-Feel comfortable with the uncomfortable and see pain as a transformative power rather than something to fear & avoid.
-Have profound levels of intimacy & connection within your relationships
-Have an intimate relationship with your feminine wisdom
-Feel connected & in tune with your body.
-Feel you are an unstoppable force of nature that serves a purpose in this lifetime, just by showing up authentically as you ( " warts & all " )
Specifically designed for women ( people with vulvas ) to redefine and reconnect to their natural eroticism, The Somatic Erotic Educator 2-month online immersion, that can be taken as EITHER a personal journey or facilitator training, offers women the embodied instruction needed to live a life guided by their erotic wisdom.
Why is this important?
Oppression operates by generating somatic dissonance & separating individuals from the wisdom of their bodies. When we are disconnected to our intrinsic body wisdom ( which acts somatically, psychologically & spiritually ) we submit to external authority, validation & power. Causing us to lose touch with our sense of self-worth. inner trust & innate joy.
The shackles of oppression perpetuate trauma, addiction, toxic relationships, self-loathing, purposelessness, dis-ease, apathy & a multitude of other phenomena that disconnect you/us from our natural state of worthiness & radiance as a women.
Reclaiming your Eros is a form of activism in itself.
Erotic awakening invites you to unravel this imposed programming & conditioning so that you can show up in the world fully resourced with the right psychological, sexual, somatic & spiritual tools to ground you into the deep knowing that who you authentically are, is enough.
Through that 'enoughness' you are able to lovingly be in service to support others to remember this very truth within themself.

The Erotic is a co-created dance: a fertile intersection that requires “transcendent fearlessness,” which begins with loosening the grip and freeing oneself from fixation - Carole Clements

Feminine centered businness & leadership guidence
The necessity of women-centered spaces.
Women are at their best when empowering themselves and each other. Yet, there are not many spaces where we feel safe enough to celebrate our beauty, power & vulnerability among other women. We live in a world often ruled by comparison, shaming & judgment when it comes to witnessing a woman in her power. Which without realizing it, contributes to the very oppressive & patriarchal paradigm we so desire to overcome.
We feel the urgent call for women to come together and experience the healing intelligence & transformative power that belonging, community & erotic liberation has to offer us, personally & collectively.

"Our erotic knowledge empowers us, becomes a lens through which we examine all aspects of our existence, forcing us to evaluate those aspects honestly in terms of their relative meaning within our lives. And this is a grave responsibility, projected from within each of us, not to settle for the convenient, the shoddy, the conventionally expected, nor the merely safe..." - A. Lorde
