Event description
Reconnecting With Your Sexual Self

About this Event

Many people of all genders find themselves disconnected from their sexual selves, caught between life stresses and relationship pressures. If your sex life no longer feels enticing or intimate, this workshop is for you. Learn how to rediscover and honour your authentic sexual self, and bring pleasure and connection back to your love life!

This workshop is based on theories and techniques that combine mindfulness and meditation with a critical deconstruction of negative social influences on our pleasure. Participants will learn about and discuss the pressures that we face to be successful in our love lives, and how that success is rarely defined by our own pleasure, connection, and enjoyment. They will then be encouraged to privately brainstorm 1-3 beliefs/myths/biases that stand between themselves and pleasure. Sharing is welcome, but not required. Participants will create a short message to themselves that affirms and empowers their authentic sexual selves, and be led in a brief meditation based on those messages.

Dr. Ruthie Neustifter is an openly sex-queer, non-binary genderqueer, poly, and kinky sex-positive advocate that aspires to base their work in anti-oppressive and trauma-informed approaches. Their work includes being an assistant professor at the University of Guelph’s Couple & Family Therapy program, faculty facilitator of the Sexual and Gender Diversity Lab, Co-chair of the Guelph Sexuality Conference, and author of The Nice Girl’s Guide to Talking Dirty.
