Body Mapping Session
It can be hard to connect to your body, all of it, and really feel what your believes and emotions are. In a body mapping session we will first talk about what your head believes and then move into a slow and safe exploration of your body. We may use a mirror or my hand to help guide you to all the different parts of your anatomy. What you will discover is an array of thoughts and judgements.
And why would you want to know? First to discover that you do not hold just 1 single believe about your body. Secondly to pinpoint the areas you would like to connect to more lovingly. This is pivotal in the journey towards greater self acceptance.
Sensual Mapping session
As children we were playful and curious in our approach to our bodies. As we get older we think we know our likes and dislikes and act accordingly. But our bodies change, the mood changes, you involve others sometimes, and still we often repeat the same. This session is a playful and curious exploration of your body. Slowly we will map what kind of touch you like on every different part of your body. Naturally we will be respecting your boundaries and only exploring what feels safe to you. So first we will discuss consent and how we will communicate. At the end of this session you will have a deeper and more complete picture of your sensory likes and dislikes which will then open up your playing field wider.
Therapeutic cuddle session
We humans thrive when we are touched and held in close contact by loving and accepting hands. A cuddle session is a quiet ritual of touch and loving which can be deeply healing and fulfilling. We will first share some tea and discuss your needs and boundaries. We will establish consent before we get comfortable for 45 mins of being held and touched (non sexual touch naturally, like stroking your hair). Breathing together and just being allowed to feel and express can be very liberating. No goals, no expectations. Afterwards you are free to share what came up for you, but also to just sit together in silence.
Rituals for Intimacy
Rituals are powerful tools in setting up the space for true connection and softness. In our very rushed lives we sometimes forget to make space for those moments that nourish our hearts, souls and bodies. Slowly depleting the intimacy in our lives. During our time together we will explore the desires (deeper connection, more appreciation, open communication, rekindle playfulness, etc) that you want to make more space for and brainstorm how you could design a beautiful ritual around some of those. For the purpose of understanding we will also experience an opening and closing ritual together. You will see how simple it can be and how this extra bit of attention will open a pathway to greater intimacy.
Tantric Touch & Play (for couples)
Tantra can open a gateway to a more embodied sensuality. Through dance, massage, breath work, play, meditation and other practices. Any tantra session will be part of a program we develop together with your needs and desires in mind. Speaking your desire is a practice all in itself, so this is where we shall start. I look forward to holding space for you and partnering you on your tantric experience.
Exploring Tantric Touch (for couples)
In a world where sex sells, porn is readily available and we are constantly bombarded with sexual messages, it is sometimes difficult to remember that the realm of sensuality and intimacy is so much larger than sex. In our relationships this can lead to needing more and more variety and stimulus to keep things sexy. Well, what if you could find a practice together that offered a different approach. Tantric touch & play involves slowing down and meeting each other as true beloveds. In our work together I will guide you, as a couple, in meeting in this sensual space where showing up is sexy, where breath is sexy, where the intensity comes from your being you. Before we set up a session we will discuss your thoughts and questions. Your boundaries will be respected and your emotional safety is priority.
Sensual Mapping Session (for couples)
As children we were playful and curious in our approach to our bodies. As we get older we think we know our likes and dislikes and act accordingly. But our bodies change, the mood changes, we learn new things through our partners, and still we often repeat the same. This session is a playful and curious exploration of your bodies. I will guide you in a slow mapping of what kind of touch you each like on every part of your body. Naturally we will be respecting your boundaries and only exploring what feels safe to you. So first we will discuss consent and how you two will communicate and how I will with the both of you. At the end of this session you will have a deeper and more complete picture of your own and your partners sensory likes and dislikes which will then open up your playing field together.
