Sex therapy is psychotherapy from a trained professional who has experience working with patients around sexual issues. Sexuality is expansive and involves all of you, although often Americans think of sex as hetero-normative intercourse. It simply isn't so isolated or limited. EMBODIED PRESENCE in life increases your aliveness in that you are more in tune with the sensual, with your senses, and that which feels enlivening to you. You can tap into all of you, which makes sexuality - being alive in your body - absolutely powerful!
GOOD SEX GETS PERSONAL
Sexual wholeness (when your heart, mind, spirit, and body are engaged, present, and cared for by yourself) is not celebrated nor treasured in American culture; rather, sexuality is more generally sectioned off from the whole person, exploited and also considered shameful. These extremes miss the truth about sexuality: it is a portal into being and understanding yourself on a very personal level. Intimacy in sex has more to do with revealing new aspects of yourself to your partner. It's less about specific areas of your body, and more about being known and seen by an important person to you - and living into new meanings and aspects of yourself that you are wanting to experience. Connected sex is powerful and often you have to grow the capacity to tolerate really being seen!
