31 Oct Somatic Sex Education Manifesto: Greta Jane
Pleasure heals, it’s true.
Pleasure is a fountain,
a replenishing elemental force,
residing in each and everyone of us.
Pleasure is a voice,
whispering from within, that only you can hear and honor.
Pleasure is personal and universal.
Pleasure is a choice,
what one finds pleasurable changes.
As we strengthen our connection
to what is pleasurable in a given moment,
Pleasure becomes a trusted compass, a guide,
navigating the landscape of boundaries, consent and desire.
All of you is welcome here
All of your senses, embodied wisdom, ancestry, experience, stories, emotions, spiritual beliefs and practices, physical and energetic shapes, make up the complex being that you are. It is common, when engaging with pleasure, that grief,
other emotions and memories arise.
We develop a practice of being with what arises.
Sense of time
Our sense of time is vital to our ability to experience pleasure.
Pleasure exists in the ever expanding present moment. Past experiences of trauma can restrict our access to pleasure. This practice is guided by your sense of timing and trust. We move at your pace.
We breathe into the present. What are you noticing?
Wisdom of the body
Our bodies hold wisdom and are always speaking. Voice is an extension of breath and your voice is central to this process. Grounded in embodied consent, we practice somatic awareness of the physicality of emotions, desires, boundaries and pleasure. Becoming fluent in the feeling of yes, no, maybe and the wondrous spectrum of response. How are you listening?
I honor the infinite ways that eros, inspiration and creativity are interconnected and the infinite ways our desires can be expressed and brought to fruition. I weave a wealth of experience as an expressive artist into my practice and offer invitations to explore and support your imagination and creativity.
What inspires and nourishes you?
Subtle and profound, humans live in a constant state of transformation. Bringing awareness and intention into this process is powerful and creates ritual.
What is ready to shift? What does transformation mean to you?
I acknowledge an ever growing awareness of how trauma shows up in the lived experiences of my clients. I honor that my lived experience and shape can and does affect others with and without my awareness. I practice with peer support to increase my awareness and reduce harm. I commit to continued education and accountability practices as I unwind my socialization as a white person.
I am honored to support people on their journeys of exploration, erotic embodiment healing and pleasure.
