This 6 session learning group offers an opportunity for IFS informed therapists to get to know their own internal sexual system by exploring the 6 S’s of Sexual Self Energy as identified in Patricia Rich’s unique integration of IFS with sexuality. We will explore Safety, Sensuality, Spaciousness, Sensitivity, Steaminess and Satisfaction as inherent qualities of Self, and get to know the parts that may stand between us and access to these qualities. Modalities will include meditation, group discussion, experiential activities, breakout rooms for processing, journaling, and more. All activities are optional, privacy is respected, and no nudity or sexual activity will be included. This workshop is not advisable for those with unprocessed sexual trauma who may need additional healing and support in order to safely approach their sexual system.
Level One IFS training or significant exposure to the IFS model such as the IFS-Institute Online Circle and Continuity Program, experiential introductory workshop, etc. Previous participation in a training with Patricia Rich on the conceptual aspects of Self-Led Sexuality helpful but not required.
All sessions are Fridays from 9 am to 11:30 am EST on Zoom
Workshop fee is $600. Reduced fee option on limited basis for lower income individuals from under-represented group/s.
