Women’s Orgasm: Why We Need to Feel Safe to Feel Good
December 2, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
This movement dates backs centuries and could be viewed as a collective culmination of countless traditions practiced by civilizations throughout time. The Red Tent Movement isn’t particular to one spiritual practice. In our Red Tent, all spirituality is valued and every faith has a place to be expressed. We will share a meal at the end, so please bring a dish.
This month, we will explore the topic “Women’s Orgasm: Why We Need to Feel Safe to Feel Good” with Dr. Jessica Tartaro
Women’s Orgasm is one of our all-time favorite topics to discuss. But the conversation about our pleasure isn’t complete without acknowledging the pain and violation that surrounds many of our relationships to our bodies. How do we move forward into our full Orgasmic freedom with this legacy?
Join Dr. Tartaro Intimacy Coaching, Intimacy Psychologist, for a sacred, simple, interactive afternoon on the topic of safety and women’s Orgasmic pleasure.
You see, we are wired to relax into pleasure when we feel safe. A woman’s sexual center and our body’s protection center have a direct communication channel. The part of the brain focused on safety is on the lookout on our behalf. And it signals to our sexual centers when the coast is clear so that we can open up our softest, pinkest parts to share and feel!
But when we have a history of violations, we run the risk of two things.
One, we can have that protective armor always on. As if it got confused with our own skin. And so our sexual nerve endings, consequently, are always “off”.
Two, if we are not careful, that protective armor can actually, ironically, render us unskillful when we are genuinely faced with threat because we don’t have our creativity, presence and responsiveness available to us (think flowing with change as opposed to the rigid oak tree). And that can risk perpetuating a pattern of ongoing small and big violations to our sanctity, integrity and safety.
The good news is that, despite having ever been violated, we can teach our bodies to relax into a responsive, creative and discerning relationship with our environments and the people we choose to share life with.
And that education is a journey!
On Saturday, December 2nd, we will gather as women to give voice to our desires for pleasure, our experience of our need for safety and what is in the way of feeling both safety and pleasure in our lives. I will offer simple awareness and communication tools for beginning or deepening that journey. And then discuss further resources for supporting your process.
Bottom line: our bodies are wise. And when we listen in real time, and resource ourselves with tools to accompany us, we CAN have the pleasure we desire.
I hope you will join us for this important discussion, exploration and celebration.
