Announcing the third UK & Ireland Sexological Bodywork Professional Training, with Deej Juventin and Uma Furman.
Sexological Bodyworkers are certified sexologists and somatic sex educators, supporting individuals, couples and groups to learn to direct their own erotic development, learn about their bodies, sex and sexuality, or work through sexual issues or concerns.
The course involves a variety of instructive modalities, including breath work, touch, Taoist Bodywork, pelvic release bodywork, scar tissue remediation, and Orgasmic Yoga coaching.
One of the somatic realms that Sexological Bodyworkers introduce to our students is a state of arousal that is free of fantasy, unfinished emotional business, religious dogma, cultural caveats and habitual sexual behaviors. In this meditative state, an individual becomes aware of the body as a source of wisdom and freedom. One of the ways to access this fecund state is by actively receiving Taoist Bodywork. Helping others access and make use of a variety of erotic states is foundational to the education we offer.
Sexological Bodyworkers believe that sexual health and erotic education are basic human rights. The Certificate in Sexological Bodywork professional training is for people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, characteristics, or expressions.
UK and Ireland Professional Training
This 6 month program trains and certifies somatic sex educators. Although touch may be used as one of the educational modalities, Sexological Bodyworkers are certified sexologists who focus on education, rather than massage therapists. This UK training will use the the Australian curriculum, which both includes and expands upon the original California-approved course of studies. Read the Code of Ethics for Sexological Bodyworkers here.
