Description: If you’ve ever struggled with parts of your intimate connection, this workshop is a powerful way to take a deeper dive into intimacy concerns. With so much sex-negative messaging around us, many of us embody a type of “sexual madness.” Then, unfortunately, these messages and judgments create sexual stories that are not of our conscious choosing. For example:

  • Do you carry insecurities about expressing yourself in intimacy?
  • Did you learn messages of shame or embarrassment growing up?
  • Have you had negative experiences with your body or in sex that have impacted how you view yourself?
Once we realize that we've inherited this negativity and discomfort from society or others, we have a choice in rewriting our sexual stories. We have the power to discover the intimacy stories that really matter, and therefore create a new path to follow moving forward. Dr. Jenn will facilitate this interactive workshop and teach skills in mindfulness, self-compassion, and expression.

Top 3 Learning Objectives:

1. Participants will be able to apply a basic understanding of the brain science around storytelling to write and rewrite their sexual stories.

2. Attendees will be able to identify, through the lens of sociology and mindfulness, two messages from childhood/society/personal experiences that have written their sexual story in a detrimental way.

3. Attendees will have prepared a plan for how to move forward with continuing to rewrite their sexual stories.

How will Dr. Jenn maximize virtual engagement of participants?

This presentation is designed as a highly experiential workshop for the audience to strengthen their own personal growth journey and sexual wellbeing. It combines many teaching styles, including lecture through PowerPoint, experiential mindfulness activities, writing exercises, small-group discussions, and creating a plan for a new future. No one ever has to share anything they don't want to. (Learn more about Dr. Jenn and her work in San Diego here: Dr. Jenn's Den.)
