An experiential exploration taking you to the depths of your inner realm
Transform your relationships by deepening the most important relationship you will ever have.. the relationship with yourself.
WITHINtimacy will have you learning and embodying intimacy using a somatic approach. This means that practically every topic we cover will have an experiential practice/tool to help integrate the teachings in a visceral way.
Weekly Live Calls will take place each Saturday from 2nd April 2022 through to 7th May 2022. These calls will take place from 7:45pm - 9pm.
Although I recommend joining LIVE, Every call will be recorded and you will recieve lifetime access.
The live calls will delivered in a lecture style with powerpoint teaching, along with somatic, experiential practices to embody each topic.
The interactive part of our course will be via a private Facebook Group where I will be posting a weekly 'HOMEPLAY' task (think homework, but more exploratory) to help integrate the weeks learnings.
Weaving weekly lectures with experiential/practical tools, and an interactive Facebook Group; topics include:
WEEK 1: EMBODIED WITHINtimacy: Foundations
Embodiment can be translated to 'a felt sense of being in your body'. This week we will explore foundational tools that bring you into YOUR body and deepen the awareness and connection you have to your inner landscape. This week we explore experientially:
Finding Safety in the Body
WEEK 2: THE NERVOUS SYSTEM: Is it safe to connect?
This week will have us bringing awareness to our subconscious/learnt protective tactics that can sometimes hinder our ability to connect in an intimate way. With this heightened awareness, we can bring in more compassion and understanding for ourselves, advocate for those parts of us, and transform our relationships. We will practicer:
The Nervous System
Seeing & Sensing
WEEK 3: EMOTIONAL EMPOWERMENT
Feeling empowered and connected to ourselves on an emotional level has huge impact on our interactions with others. The relationship we have with our emotions can lead us closer to connection and intimacy, or further away. This week we will explore and practice experientially:
An embodied feelings journey
WEEK 4: UNDERSTANDING OUR PAST
This week we will be doing some time travel into the past. This will be a gentle and careful exploration and we will end the evening with some empowering work around self soothing and self regulation. Together we will explore and expand our knowledge around:
Attachment Theory in a new light (both Hakomi Method inspired, and Dr. Diane Poole Heller inspired)
Inner Child repair
Self Soothing / Self Regulation
WEEK 5: KNOW THYSELF
As our journey nears the end, we will explore some topics that I hope will leave you feeling as if your relationship with yourself has grown in leaps and bounds. This week we will go on two experiential, somatic journeys:
Claiming your body
WEEK 6: SENSUAL & SEXUAL EMBODIMENT
This week will be impactful! Buckle in for a really amazing experiential journey. Tonight will leave you knowing your sensual & sexual self on a new level. After tonight, not only could you have a much deeper awareness of your sexuality and sensuality, but you will also have new ideas on communicating this awareness to current, or potential partners for more intimacy in your sexual relationships. We will explore:
Core Desires (life changing!)
(Please Note: In the short term future I will be facilitating Embodied Sexuality & Sensuality Workshops. These will be 3 hours long and will cover alot more than what we can cover in our 1.5 hour WITHINtimacy workshop. If you see these events pop up and would like to explore this area more, don't hesitate to join that workshop also)
