Body, Mind & Spirit: Transforming Our Sexual Stories

Nov 05, 2011 9:00 am -
Nov 05, 2011 4:30 pm

Event Description

Jean Kilbourne, EdD, Judy Leavitt, EdD and Gina Ogden, PhD, presenters

This conference is about helping women find new meaning in their sexual stories and discover multiple paths to pleasure, power and satisfaction--at any age, with or without a partner. We begin the day with Jean Kilbourne and her acclaimed work on how women are so devastatingly portrayed in the media. She will take us on a journey that opens our eyes to the intense over-sexualization and objectification of women. Gina Ogden will bring us hope and guidance by showing us innovative ways to transcend guilt, shame, and "good-girls-don't" messages; heal the sexual wounds of violence, abuse, and compulsivity; create heart-to-heart communication; and expand our capacity for love, creativity and compassion. In the afternoon, Judy Leavitt will present her work on the Sexual Alarm System, an alarm that develops around women's bodies telling them, 'Danger' and also interferes with their ability to be sexual. In addition Judy will share specific special body work exercises that help women reclaim their sexuality and work through the Sexual Alarm System. Finally, together Gina and Judy will consult with the participants on cases that they present. You will be encouraged to submit cases prior to the conference. We want all of you to be part of this special day with us.
