Healing The Pelvic Floor:

Reclaiming Your Power, Sexuality, and Pleasure Potential

As women we have a unique power of creativity in our reproductive systems. That power is used not only to create new life, but also to bring personal projects into being.

However, that energy can be blocked by physical, emotional, or spiritual trauma to the pelvic floor and the female organs. In this course for women, we use guided imagery, movement and hands-on exercises (all done with clothing on) to heal the pelvic floor, including the vagina and uterus, places that often hold our deepest wounds. These wounds include rape, abortions, sexual abuse, surgery, childbirth tearing and scars, self-esteem issues and negative images about our femininity. Because self-knowledge is important, scientific and anatomic information will also be presented, as well as ongoing self-care using pelvic floor yoga and abdominal massage.

Rarely does a course offer the opportunity for the depth of healing that women desire. In these five days you will experience whole new possibilities for renewed feminine energy, greater health, and a deeper sense of pleasure in being a woman. We will spend time exploring nature and how our connection to the earth deepens our connection to ourselves. 

This course is designed for both therapists and women from all walks of life.

Sanctuary
in the Pines

Flat Rock, NC

Sanctuary in the Pines was built as an opportunity to practice cooperation and creativity in awareness.

Nestled in a woodland area of Highland Lake, surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains, Sanctuary in the Pines invites the senses to participate with nature. The lake is visible from the grounds, and the garden has been lovingly created to blend delicately with the surrounding scenery.

Having just done the workshop, I know that my life has changed from a soul level to every cell in my being. I was able to connect dots from pre-birth memories, family dynamics, and awkward sexual moments when I “froze.”  My adult mind could rationalize it all in order to defend my old wounds from being re-triggered. On the other side of the workshop, I realized how much of my life’s energy was being wasted just trying to hold myself together.

Today I feel safe and full in the ground of my feminine being.  My inner voice is strengthening as my heart, body and mind unfold in a sensuous wave of exploration.
