LIBIDO FUNDAMENTALS

 

Libido Fundamentals begins to address the movement and cycle of sexual energy within the wider definition of Libido as life force, birth place of creativity, vitality, presence and aliveness.

 

As our hearts and bodies awaken through the movement meditation practice, our sexual energy also begins to stir. On the dance floor, we may feel juicy, radiant, and desirable one moment and feel guilty, awkward, and shy in the next. We may feel overwhelmed by our own experience - or by the sexual energies around us – or feel flat, disconnected, or just plain left out.

 

Our generative, sexual energy - our Libido - is an essential part of our body’s natural expression, complicated one moment, ecstatic the next; absent or burdened with expectations of past experiences, this energy within and between us comes to the dance longing for freedom. Libido Fundamentals begins this complex and creative investigation by introducing the basics of using movement meditation as a means to ground, and explore the physical language of our sexual energy.

 

Because sexuality is so often underground, ignored, or unconsciously acted out, the exploration of this territory tends to be intense, liberating, intimate and powerful. The potential pleasure and beauty of this journey is well worth the challenges and the risks.

 

This course is an introduction to the longer intensives, where there is time to explore the multitude of historical, emotional, relational, creative and spiritual aspects of our sexuality.

 

There is no explicit sexual content or exercises, we’re starting to track how who we are - our conditioning, gender, culture, social mores, dreams, memories, families - aids or obstructs our ability to move with our innate sexual life force and ability to relate, using movement and enquiry as a tool for discovery.

 

All genders and sexual orientations are welcome.
