All About This Workshop

This workshop was created for women who want to explore unhealthy sexual patterns and behaviors that deeply impact their ability to connect relationally in healthy ways. Whether the issues involved include past or present trauma, cultural messages, or negative beliefs, all can serve as roadblocks to true intimacy. Understanding the neurobiology that leads to sexual obsession and compulsivity offers a foundation for shame reduction and the alleviation of self-loathing.

Emotional regulation, body image, triggers for sexual acting out, and grief related to a myriad of associated losses are just a few of the many issues explored in this workshop. Methods of enhancing esteem from within, rather than seeking validation from other sources, are instilled. Critical to ongoing recovery, the ability to differentiate the behavior from someone’s worth offers the participant greater compassion for self. This workshop offers each individual a safe, supportive environment in which to explore sensitive issues, and participants garner necessary tools and develop their own individual recovery plan.

Cost: $3,450, which includes

  • meals
  • evening activities (yoga, tai chi, auricular acupuncture, live music)
  • 12-Step meeting
  • Brain Center access
  • gym access
