Core Concepts of Art of Ecstasy; Sex as a fundamental concept.
In this introductory session, individuals are encouraged to set the stage for the next 12-weeks by setting an intention for what they want to gain from each webinar. We explore how to be sensual and non-sexually connected outside the bedroom with yourself and with your partner, and how, as sensual (sensation) beings we naturally connect in this way all the time. We discuss what individuals tend to hide from when it comes to sensuality and sexuality, how individuals disconnect and deprive themselves, and what one needs to connect and nurture themselves and their most intimate relationship(s).
Understanding Our “Love Stories.”
In this session we explore the impact that “stories” (belief systems) developed based off of people’s pasts and how they impact individuals in their current most intimate relationships. We explore the concept of being “love-able” including the illusion of “I love you” from an inauthentic, need-dependent space rather than from a self-other honoring space. Affirmations are provided during this session to encourage the growth of self-love and self-acceptance in order to be able to share pure love with one’s partner.
