VOICES OF THE PELVIS
CULTIVATING YOUR SENSUOUS SPIRIT
BLESSING OUR SEXUALITY
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP: Do you want to deepen and explore the splendor, grace, beauty, and intimacy in sexuality? Do you want to talk about how sexuality can be fun, sensuous, and sacred too? Whether or not you are currently partnered, this workshop is about your relationship with your sexuality. Through presentation and shared discussion that honors individual values and spiritual beliefs, you will enjoy learning and re-learning about this most splendid aspect of sexual wellness. During the last hour, we will seal the experience into the body with the power and grace of a uniquely designed Nia dance. No prior Nia experience is necessary.

Susan oozes enthusiasm, pleasure, and joy. The energy she brings to her passion of wellness is absolutely infectious. I dare you to hear her speak, read her work, or spend some time with her and NOT get inspired!
~Kate Northrup, Best-selling author of Money: A Love Story
I was a little nervous about attending Susan's workshop on sacred sexuality. First of all, the topic. Second of all . . .the topic. But having experienced Susan's genuine grace, respect, and humor in previous workshops and Nia classes, I took a leap of faith and went for it. It was fun! I felt safe. Best of all, the first part of the workshop allowed me to use my mind to consider my own sexual, sensual being, and the last part, the Nia dance, allowed me to use both body and spirit to experience and seal in the awakened sense of self."

In just a few hours, Susan taught us to open up an area of our body, which can be a bit scary to many. With a combination of reflection and dance, she guided us to experience a new freedom in movement and thinking.

I forced myself to come to this workshop with the belief that it might nourish my soul. I'm not really sure what it is that I experienced, except to know that I want more of it :)
