“FIFTY SHADES OF EROS: EXPLORING THE POETICS OF SEX AND THE NATURE OF DESIRE”. PSYCHODRAMA AND DANCE MOVEMENT THERAPY WORKSHOP
The dynamics of desire are forged in our childhood experiences and our sexual preferences are shaped by the thrills, challenges and conflicts of our early relationships. Were we held or neglected? Loved or abandoned? Did we experience pleasure or did we learn not to expect too much? What did our family teach us about our body, our gender and our sexuality?
Our first attachment experiences provide us with a template for what we expect to happen or will not allow in an intimate relationship. Sex is a clue on how we deal with closeness, how we deal with control or surrender and how we manage pleasure. It reflects how vulnerable we allow ourselves to be and how we receive, ask, give or take.
This experiential workshop is designed to give an opportunity for personal exploration and professional development and will help explore our unique erotic blueprint in a safe and supportive environment.
The group will examine different ways of working on, analyzing and contextualizing sexuality in a therapeutic setting. We will explore how to create a safe space to deal with the issues around intimacy, vulnerability, pleasure, desire, identity, sexual orientation, gender, sexual preferences, fantasies and erotic dreams.
The ultimate aim in this workshop will be to initiate a transformative process of self awareness so as to playfully rekindle our creativity and desire.
