Getting to the Core of Sexuality Trauma–an experiential workshop with Ariel Giarretto” in İstanbul
May 1, 2020 @ 10:00 am - May 3, 2020 @ 4:00 pm UTC+3
Assisting and articulating movement practices during “Getting to the Core of Sexuality Trauma–an experiential workshop” with Ariel Giarretto MS, LMFT, SEP
The program is aimed at increasing awareness, aliveness and pleasure in our whole bodies. It looks at developmental imprints and other formative influences that interrupt a clear, stress-free relationship with ourselves as fully embodied sexual/sensual beings. It offers transformative experiential practices for all levels of interest—for self-exploration and personal enhancement, healing sexual abuse, as well as providing useful strategies for therapists working with sexuality and trauma. It is open to anyone desiring to learn more about sexuality from a somatic/social/cultural, psychological or physiological perspective.
THIS WORKSHOP WILL COVER HOW TO
Have more ease, confidence and connection with our whole bodies
Establish a strong somatic container and develop honest “embodied consent” through boundaries
Understand our response to sexual arousal through the “Dual Mode” brake/accelerator model that supports us in identifying the unconscious “brakes” that thwart pleasure and desire
Learn new ways of finding peace, pleasure and safety after sexual abuse or assault
Examine the messages than many are given about gender, the body and sexuality, and begin to access and embody more authentic beliefs and desires, underneath the conditioning
FORMAT AND TECHNIQUES
The workshop is a friendly mix of science and education, psychological and emotional inquiry, and gentle, respectful exercises designed to deepen contact with self.
