“THE PLEASURE IS ALL MINE:
Reclaiming vitality IN YOUR relationship with self and others”
for individuals and couples
This pioneering course isn’t your mother’s brand of “therapy.”
We will go beyond antiquated approaches that focus solely on your thoughts but aren’t integrated into your body and heart, which is what truly leads to awakening and lasting change.
Experience this mind-body course that can reconnect you to your inner truth and ease...
that can help you reclaim your vitality and cultivate joy and pleasure,
which you’ve always deserved in your life and relationships but been distracted or discouraged from...
Experience a sense of FLOW, that feeling of living from your most optimal, resilient place within.
Pleasure is an expression of your LIFEFORCE! It enlivens you from the inside out. Once you really own your right to pleasure and feel confident in it, there's a magnetism that draws people toward you.
Yet many have a conflicted or blocked relationship with pleasure —
feeling guilty if they overindulge or chasing a pleasure high without having moderation.
I believe that pleasure is your superpower and want to help people feel liberated from the misconceptions they’ve been taught about it.
Our focus is on cultivating a sense of inner awareness, authenticity, empowerment, joy and pleasure in key areas of your daily life.
Depending on what needs attention in your life,
you can choose to start with one of three tracks (and you’re welcome to take all three) or mix and match any two.
OPTION 1: Personal Identity & Self Empowerment
This included the most important relationship of all — the one with your SELF, and will also explore family, friendships, and colleagues. Reclaim a balanced sense of personal power with core issues such as food, exercise and self-expression. Learn your worth and what you deserve because it’s your birthright. This is a foundational course I highly recommend everyone start with.
OPTION 2: Connection in Relationships: Dating, Intimacy & Sexual Vitality
Whether you’re newly single and wanting to know how to date in the modern era or have been partnered for decades and want to spice things up, this course if for you. We’ll identify the barriers to feeling a healthy level of sensuality, eroticism and desire. Learn about sacred sexuality, embracing vulnerability and loving more fully than you thought was possible.
OPTION 3: Flourishing in Your Career
Here we’ll hone in on your specific talents and capabilities to channel your meaning and purpose toward a career that lets you shine and engages you. Our goals is to help you feel a sense of thriving and engagement in a craft that’s more of a calling than a job.
What are you getting yourself into?
This course is divided into TWO PARTS:
- INTAKE: during our first 2 sessions I will learn about your specific patterns, storylines, beliefs, existing mind-body connection, physical and emotional traumas, and any degree of mind-body split and sex-pleasure split. You’ll also being guided in your own self-inventory. By the end of the second session we will come up with your “Pleasure Quotient” - a numerical value that we can measure against to assess improvement.
- ACTIVATE: during our remaining 4 sessions we will EMBODY the tools that you’re learning so you can actually LIVE them in your life. This is absolutely key, and what’s been missing from traditional psychotherapy — the insights get stuck in your head, and your behaviors don’t change. You will learn to activate your senses, breath, and bodily movements that stem from both eastern and western medicine
Why the body?
The body holds the KEY, which boils down to three things. First, the body holds all trauma as a record that reveals itself through body sensations, nervous system activation and energy. Second, our body is our life-force and holds a deep, profound inner-knowing which can be accessed through certain movements, sounds and meditations that can both release old junk held inside of us in order to create new spaciousness and energy. Third, our body knows exactly why we are suffering and how to resolve it, but we get in our own way. This course will teach you how to develop what I call BODYFULNESS - a nuanced intelligence for your body’s wisdom which allows you to feel and ease, steadiness, and inner confidence in your ability to cope with whatever comes your way.
