The Sea School of Embodiment presents international trainings in the fields of embodiment, Sexological Bodywork, consent, the expressive arts and continuous professional development (CPD) for professionals working in the field of somatic sexology. Somatic can be defined as "of the body" and embodiment as "the body experienced from within".

The School is a collaboration between Kian de la Cour and Katie Sarra. As well as workshops in creativity, Cuddle Parties™ and Consensual Life™ trainings in touch, we offer individual and couples embodiment sessions to resource you feeling safe enough to feel more of yourself and to live the life you long for.

We created the Sea School to host and share the teachings, trainings and workshops that have most facilitated our embodiment and creative growth and opened our hearts. These trainings have broadened our horizons, liberated us from old patterns, deepened our integrity, developed our skills and supported our relaxation into our naturalness. Our events are intended to support the expansion of informed dialogue about conscious relating and to support professionals engaged with somatic sex education.

The Sea School of Embodiment hosted the first UK & Ireland Certificate in Sexological Bodywork (CSB) and Certificate in Somatic Sex Education (CSSE) in 2014; the first UK workshops in the Wheel of Consent with Betty Martin and the first UK training for facilitators of Cuddle Party in 2015; and the world's first comprehensive training in Women's Pelvic Health: Scar Tissue Remediation, Education and Management (STREAM) taught by Ellen Heed & Kimberly Ann Johnson in Dawlish, Devon in 2016. These have attracted participants from across Europe as well as from Africa, America, Australia and Switzerland.

Sea School of Creative Expression

"Everything's Fine" by Katie Sarra  

"Everything's Fine" by Katie Sarra


Our creative expression is ultimately what all embodiment trainings are opening us into and there are many routes into us overcoming the blocks that have inhibited us expressing ourselves in the world.

We are all creative in our naturalness and that expression flows naturally from each of us in different ways. You might be dreaming of overcoming inhibitions with painting, writing, singing, dancing, performing, sculpting, knitting, weaving, felting, making things, the fine art of cooking or simply want to feel free.

We have gathered and are gathering the fastest routes that we have experienced in overcoming what's in the way of trusting spontaneity using all the senses. Here are trainings we recommend alongside trainings I have created from my years of experiences teaching embodiment liberation and as an artist and art psychotherapist. These are listed in the different sensory expressive modalities which all liberate us from shame.
