A four-session morning course for women
RECLAIM THE JOY OF YOUR SEXUALITY- explore Sex and Sexuality through art-making and group sharing
4 morning sessions Thursday mornings 10-12noon starting on 15th of March
As we sense and listen to our bodies we let messages of the body speak: in clay, in paint, in words, collage, with broad strokes, on large paper or in notebooks. 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. 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.
Opportunities to talk openly about sex or obstacles related to sex are rare and often go under-explored even in counselling and therapy.
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.
This is a group for anyone identifying as a woman, trans women warmly welcome.
The group takes place in a beautiful studio in Saltdean- please get in touch to find out more
