BACK TO SEX-  Reclaim the Joy of your Sexuality!

ONE DAY WORKSHOP in London at Synchronicity Centre, Clapham


BACK TO SEX offers gentle and powerful ways to help you to re-connect with your sexuality and your erotic self.

There are many reasons why people have given up on sex, sometimes for a very long time. But sex is important, our birthright and possibly our most powerful life force.

Whether you feel disheartened, hopeless, dis-connected or broken, I believe there is always a way forward. It takes courage to look at stumbling blocks to a fulfilled sexuality, but no difficulty or obstacle is insurmountable.

I invite you to embark on a journey: let’s talk, explore- and create- about sex and sexuality!

In a small group we will work with self enquiry and group sharing using creative media such as free-writing, collage, mask-work, movement, arrow breaking as well as breathwork and simple tantric exercises.

You will find ways to uncover limiting beliefs and tackle obstacles, re-connect with your erotic life and get to know yourself (again ) as the gorgeous erotic, sexual being you are.    


Join us and get BACK TO SEX!


The course involves no nudity.

You can attend on your own, with a partner or partners

People of all genders, sexualities and all (adult ages) welcome.

I always work flexibly, considering needs and wishes of the group;

however, these are some of the areas we might look at together:

  1. ideas, messages and cultural myths about sex and how we have been shaped by these;

  2. taking stock and releasing what no longer serves you;

  3. shame-busting and building sexual confidence;

  4. consent, boundaries & safety: know your yes, no and maybes!

  5. explore your own sexual history;

  6. what does ‘radical self love’ mean when we look at our sexuality?

  7. explore and address your personal pain points around sex and sexuality;

  8. find your authentic sexual voice;

  9. solo sex;

  10. gender and sex;

  11. the body beautiful- sex and our relationship with our bodies;

  12. sex and relationships - monogamy/ non-monogamy/ polyamory- alternative relationship styles;

  13. sexual orientation and sexual expression;

  14. working with ‘stretching zone’ and ‘resilient edge’, supporting you to find and commit to your own pace and steps to get ‘Back to Sex’.


‘This course helped me to re-discover myself in a new way and to release unhelpful stuff I didn’t even know was there.’


'Eva provides a calm and gentle space in which to explore sex and sexuality. Highly recommended if you are nervous but curious about getting to know yourself as a sexual being.' 


                         

CREATING FROM THE BODY-

a Journey into the Creative and the Erotic

one day workshop with Eva Weaver and Sara Ablinger

Sunday 10th of December 2017 10am -5pm


For women and trans* & non-binary folk in all their diversity


Creativity and sexuality are our birthright. Often though we have been censored or shamed in our expressions and we’ve hidden, dampened or shut down those powerful sources of life energy. Yet, creativity and sexuality are never far away- like an underground river of unlimited energy they flow through our lives, a source we can connect with whenever we chose to.


This workshop is an invitation to experience many ways to tap into the rich ground that is our body for inspiration and authentic creating and explore how creativity can support us in our unique erotic expression.


This day is for you if you want to

learn more about yourself as an embodied, erotic being; 

experience the power of creativity to support you in shedding what no longer serves you and heal from wounds of the past;

discover a fresh approach to connecting with your erotic and creative energy;

tap into your creativity or find new ways to express yourself, without pressure or focus on a product;

experience how to create and live from a more embodied place and listen deeply to the voice of your body;

tackle and dissolve obstacles that might block your creative or erotic expression;


What we will do:

Through creative offerings and playful exercises such as

working with clay,

collage,

mask-work,

painting,

writing

movement

breathwork

and simple somatic exercises we will:

tune into the body’s wisdom and let it expresses itself;

create from impulses we find in the body and let our creations inspire us in our erotic expression;

explore how we can move from connecting with our own erotic energy into ‘making stuff’;

celebrate spontaneous expression and process rather than product;

have fun!


Our bodies are wise- our stories, dreams and memories, everything we have ever experienced, thought or felt lives in our blood, our bones, muscles, cells, our very DNA.

We let whispers and messages of the body become visible and speak: in clay, in paint, in words, in a collage, with broad strokes, on large paper or in notebooks.

You might lie down on a big canvas and draw yourself in your full size and power or find the best form to express yourself in a collage, a poem or a mask.


As we sense and listen to our bodies and create from what we find we might

dance our bones,

paint from the murmours of our blood,

write the story of our skin ,

take notations from our muscles,

sculpt our hearts or

doodle our genitals.


We offer this day in a spirit of curiosity, fun and experimentation and create a supportive space in which you can dive as deep as you like.


We hope you can join us on this exciting journey into the Creative and Erotic!

WRITING FROM THE BODY- a creative writing workshop with Eva Weaver- one day workshop

Sunday, 8th of October 2017  10am-5pm   London Synchronicity Centre, Clapham North 10-5pm


‘Write your self. Your body must be heard.’ Helen Cixous


Our bodies hold stories and memories- everything we have ever experienced, thought or felt lives in our blood, our bones, muscles, cells, our very DNA. But how do we write from the body?

How do we tap into the rich ground that is our body for inspiration and authentic, original writing?

How can we write from our whole body not only from our brain?


In this workshop we will consciously tune into our bodies, using movement, breathwork, stretching, yoga and sensing exercises to cultivate embodied writing. We will listen deeply to the stories our bodies hold, move effortlessly between movement and the page and back.

We will play with automatic/ stream of consciousness writing, prompts and themed writing.


No experience in creative writing, movement or dance necessary, only a willingness to experiment. You are not required to participate in all the exercises if for whatever reason you are finding any exercises difficult. You chose your level of engagement and are welcome as you are.

cost: £85, some concessions


Eva’s 'Writing from the Body' workshop, that could easily be called ‘writing from, through and beyond the body’- gradually takes you deep inside, quite effortlessly and much deeper then you realise, thanks to her gentle ways and playful strategies.

I have found it an inspiring and nourishing day and I brought home a lot of food for thought, snippets of good writing to develop as well as a palette of techniques to continue playing with.‘   Emmanuelle Waeckerle


‘The workshop was a playful way to process deeply and find entry points into creative flow. It was great to have and bring awareness to the body and how freeing that was for creative flow to happen. Assisted Embodied Soul-diving.


A unique set of tools to take me into a writing process, from deeply felt, often surprising places.


Writing from the Body was quite different to anything I had done before- I loved creating that way! Eva held a space of permission and possibility. I was taken into some deep states and became more embodied with each exercise. It was incredible what writing sits in my body. I now have ways to access it. Thank you Eva!’

Reclaim the Joy of your Sexuality-

explore Sex and Sexuality through art-making and group sharing

Thursday MORNING GROUP 10-12.30

Brighton/Saltdean, the Cabin  Four mornings


Sexuality is our birthright- but many people feel disconnected from their sexuality. Reasons for this can range from trauma to lack of confidence or opportunity, physical pain, depression, recovery from illness, body shame

or dysphoria, etc.

Many people have difficulties finding opportunities to talk openly about sex or obstacles related to sex and the theme often goes under-explored even in counselling and psychotherapy.


This small group offers a safe and confidential space to explore your relationship with sex and sexuality through creative media such as paints, drawing, collage and clay and group discussion.

Working in a group can help lessen isolation and foster a sense of belonging and hope. Group members can function as supportive mirrors for each other, reflecting different aspects and facets of one another and pooling ideas, resources and finding creative ways of addressing obstacles. Through group discussion we can explore meaning and symbolism that might arise in the images.

Creating/ art making allows you to express yourself beyond words, discover more about yourself, your desires, obstacles, values and boundaries. Often our creations give us hints and directions about how to progress on the journey back to sex and to reclaim the joy of our sexuality.

Some exercises are themed, while at other times your are encouraged to express and create whatever arises in the moment.


No experience of art-making necessary, only a willingness to engage with art material and openness to engage in the process.


The group takes place in a beautiful studio in Saltdean-

4 weeks from autumn
