Journey of A Woman's Heart
Finding True Intimacy
Finding True Intimacy
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 are 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 to shame reduction, and the alleviation of self-loathing. Emotional regulation, body image, triggers for sexual acting out, and grief related to the myriad of associated losses are just a few of the many issues that are explored. 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 one’s worth offers the participant greater compassion for self. Participants garner necessary tools and develop their own individual recovery plan. This workshop offers each individual a safe, supportive environment in which to explore sensitive issues.
$3,100 – All-inclusive are meals and evening activities: Yoga, Tai Chi, Auricular Acupuncture, Live Music, and 12-step meeting. Access to the Brain Spa and gym are also included in the cost of the workshop.
