Holistic Sexuality for Women

Feminine sexuality is multilayered, constantly evolving, rich in energy, deliberate in rising and nourished by the senses.  

Slowing down and letting the sensual body lead in matters of what feels good and what does not.  The body becomes her teacher in embodying and expressing her innate sexual expression and requirements for connection with another.

 

Holistic Sexual Healing* aligns feminine sexuality in its most genuine and enlivened expression.

The mind is said to be the greatest asset for all lovers.  Desire, fantasy, and beliefs about sex and sexuality help sustain and support what is essential for intimate connections and sexual satisfaction.  But first, creating a space where misunderstandings and hurts have a place to be expressed and held with compassion.  

Which leads us to emotions—the good, the bad and the seriously ugly—all used in the exploration of she is as a sexual being, her needs for intimacy and true heart-felt desires. 

How being able to express emotions can assist in creating a loving and open-hearted foundation for sexual openness, exploration and the receiving and giving of pleasure.  Where saying “no” is even more powerful than the “yes.”  

Spirituality, as seen through the spiritual lens, is the space where connection and disconnection exist.  This especially important for the feminine as often an essential turn on is intimacy and connection.

 

Holistic Sex has a role in bonding, connection, and staying present.

Mutually satisfying sexual exchanges naturally intensify bonding, but sex can take place without bonding if we’re careful to keep our hearts closed.  Sex opens the heart only if we bring the energy up and the access to our heart space remains open.

Slowing down, awakening all of the senses, tuning in to subtle energy, letting go of judgment and blame, expressing gratitude for the gift of life, and savoring the present moment are wonderfully supportive tools for intimate relating.

 

Holistic Sexuality helps women explore and create a space—in relationship or not—to for their authentic and genuine flavor of her own erotic desire and pleasure.

Women often don’t have the opportunity to discover and deepen their relationship with their own sexual self.

For many, their sexuality first belongs to parents who may advocate for celibacy until marriage because of religious or cultural factors.  Then, it is a shared experience with lovers, husbands, partners.  Rare is the women who owns her sexual self through self-discovery on her own first.

 

Women’s unmet desires—the myth of low libido.

What is consistently seen as a deeper, central issue is women’s unmet desires in  the relationship.

One of the results of the feminist-women’s movement has been a change in the roles and expectations in their intimate relationships which has not translated fully in romantic relationships.

Leading many to experiencing frustration by the lack of intimacy and shared responsibility in the relationship and in the home.

 

And, the feminine body is constantly changing. 

No two days are alike.What may feel good one day, may feel quite different the next.Daily life, stressors, physical closeness with children, lifestyle and work pressures, and relationship with the body are all factors, among others, that impact sexual desire.

 

Many women have sexual concerns.  These concerns are absolutely nothing to be ashamed of  because they are part of being human, but many have been taught to avoid, squelch or power through concerns.
