Sex used to be something that I felt okay about. Just okay. It was something I did, and sometimes enjoyed, while feeling somewhat insecure. I was embarrassed of my body, shy to express myself, and just not sure if I was doing it right! I had absorbed so many toxic messages about being a womxn that made me feel inhibited and stuck. I knew there had to be something more, but I didn't know where to look or how to learn.
Things changed for me when my partner introduced me to a book on Mindfulness and Sexuality. A lifelong meditator, the title peaked my interest and as I read, I started to realize how I’d never truly been present during sex. Thanks to that book and that man (who is still my partner to this day), I began a journey of sexual healing and trauma integration that hasn't stopped.
I studied neo-tantric and Daoist sexual healing practices and I learned that our sexual energy is not just for sex, it’s flowing through us all the time. We can learn to harness its power to create lives filled with vitality, vibrancy, and creativity.
I got a Masters Degree in Counselling, studied Somatic Experiencing and learned how to resolve stuck traumatic energy and hold space for healing to happen.
I've learned that deep inner resiliency and the capacity to stay anchored through the ebbs and flows of life is available to anyone who with the courage to walk into towards their shadows and hold their sexuality, body and soul with a compassionate loving presence .
