Most likely you have experienced some level of trauma throughout your life and within your surroundings, whether it was at school, home, socially or all of the above.
Trauma is when you felt a sense of powerlessness and didn’t have a choice — often a moment when you weren’t able to fight back, set a boundary, or run for safety — and when this happens the nervous system becomes overwhelmed, much like a shock to the system. That traumatic experience has now set in motion a new belief, a new coping mechanism, a new association towards our relationships with others and with ourselves.
How do I know if I have trauma? We only have to look to our body to see the symptoms and our emotional responses to see our behaviours. The aftermath of a traumatic event shows up in many different forms; anxiety, fearfulness, panic attacks, disassociation, moodswings, shutting down, withdrawing, feeling contracted, unsafe, insecure, shame, guilt just to name a few…
But one thing we can say for sure, is that trauma inhibits our ability to fully feel safe, to fully relax, to fully trust and to fully feel alive.
I often say when I’m teaching on the topic of trauma, that “…everything shows up during intimacy” because it is during intimacy when we want to feel trust, relaxation, open, free, uninhibited and alive (not just during the honeymoon phase). And to feel these qualities during intimacy with another becomes very difficult if we’ve had a traumatic experience in our life.
The house of intimacy (and truly letting go during intimacy) for many people is either compromised, carries fear, shame, negative associations, or is forgotten about altogether. And yet, intimacy allows us to experience life in — dare I say it — an intimate way. It represents a profound moment in time when we are fully relaxed in who we are and able to be fully present (no judgements or adjustments needed). Intimacy is not only with another, but also with yourself and with Life around you…where we are in complete relaxation and trust with all and everything. Osho’s wonderful quote says it well, “intimacy is a love affair with the unknown”.
Sexual Healing through Trauma Healing is a 3-day journey that we will take together exploring this very topic. We look at where we are held back, the obstacles we currently face, and learn ways to heal areas in our life where we feel inhibited, so that we can experience life intimately and passionately.
This online course is open to all, whether you are heterosexual or recognise yourself within the LGBTQ, or are not yet identified. All are welcome.

“I was born in the late 60’s, a time of radical thinking and revolutionary approaches to human psychology and group therapy. As a child, I grew up in a conscious community and was fortunate enough to sit with a teacher named, Osho, until he left his body in the 90’s. Growing up in a conscious community, I had a rare opportunity to partake in a multitude of meditations, workshops and retreats. Much of the teachings sitting with Osho were on human psychology, awareness and meditation. This became one of the most illuminating and enriching experiences in my own development growing up, and one that continues to impact my life today… ”
