How can we use erotic play to heal our traumas (both individual and inter-generational)? What is required for us to set up an erotic play that consciously takes trauma as its script? In this workshop I will share with you my research in this field over the last 15 years and invite you into a conversation about how you may want to bring this awareness into your life. The feeling of safety will be our guiding thread.
