As our hearts and bodies awaken through the movement meditation practice, our sexual energy also begins to stir. On the dance floor, we may feel juicy, radiant, and desirable one moment and feel guilty, awkward, and shy the next. We may feel overwhelmed by our own experience – or by the sexual energies around us – or feel flat, disconnected, or just plain left out.
Our generative, sexual energy – our Libido – is an essential part of our body’s natural expression, complicated one moment, ecstatic the next; absent or burdened with expectations of our past experiences, this energy within and between us comes to the
dance longing for freedom.
Libido Fundamentals begins this complex and creative investigation by introducing the basics of using movement meditation as a means to ground, and explore the physical language of our sexual energy. Because sexuality is so often underground, ignored, or unconsciously acted out, the exploration of this territory tends to be intense, liberating, intimate and powerful. The potential pleasure and beauty of this journey is well worth the challenges and risks.
This course is an introduction to longer intensives, where there is time to explore the multitude of historical, emotional, relational, creative and spiritual aspects of our sexuality.
This workshop counts for 20.5 hours of prerequisites or 3 days of electives for the Open Floor teacher training program.
