Women's Pleasure: Women's Power

Buy ticket now

women's pleasure
Here Mike is taking a back-seat while Louise has paired up with amazing Joelle Chartouni for a women’s only 2 days workshop

Open to the joy of being a woman. Connect to your feminine essence, and experience how being authentically you, as a living, breathing, feeling woman, is a portal to your pleasure and your power.

When we feel challenged by life we often make ourselves small, try to please others, get competitive, go into our heads and deny our femininity. When we feel good inside no matter what emotional state we’re in, we expand and radiate our natural power. Neediness and power games recede as our real, feminine essence begins to shine forth.

Join us for 2 days of coming back to your woman’s body to find your pleasure, your pain and your power.

The relationship between men and women keeps inflicting pain, both at a personal and at a global level. The recent #metoo campaign on Facebook raised awareness about how disempowered women still feel. Men have started rising to the challenge, creating conscious men’s work groups. Now it’s our turn to meet them.

It’s time to learn to connect to the joy and essence of being a woman in a woman’s body, and bring that to the world in a powerful way!

This very special New Years workshop is designed to help you create new neural pathways to experience yourself in a new way. With sisterhood as our guiding principle and using tools from neuroscience, craniosacral therapy and Psychosexual Somatics®, we will gently guide you into deeper connection with yourself, with your body, your pleasure and ultimately with your identity as a woman that is empowered by all that she’s feeling.
〰 Reignite your pleasure is all you need to do 〰
The Skylight Centre, 49 Corsica Street, Highbury East, London N5 1JKT
January 9th-10th 10.00am-5.00pm

Real Sex: Awaken your erotic intelligence 

We have a deep yearning for love and aliveness in our body, yet our culture has hijacked sexuality with commercialism, pornography and performance pressure. So, how do we recapture the purity of our sexual self? How can we transform sex from something we do to a state of being? How can we have Real Sex? 

On this deep, therapeutic journey you will be guided into the heart of your sexual self, a way of creating meaningful and fulfilling intimacy. You will discover the seven keys to awaken your erotic intelligence and teach you to love and accept your mind, body, feelings, desires and sexuality at a deeper level, leaving behind feelings of guilt, insecurity and shame. 

Based on our book Real Sex: Why everything you learnt about sex is wrong (Hay House 2017) you will reconnect with the true meaning of sex and intimacy at a deep level. Through exercises and shared wisdom you will reawaken to your potential for love, joy and pleasure. You will begin to understand the power of embodied presence, of clean, not just clear, communication and a subtle sensitivity that will connect you with the potential of sex. 

Please note this is a therapeutic workshop, aimed at personal development. There is no nudity or sexual activity in this workshop.
