SACRED SEXUAL CONTRACTS
What unconscious sexual beliefs are we carrying that prevent us from fully inhabiting our sexual bodies with joy and without shame? What contracts have we willingly or unwillingly made with ourselves and our world that keep us from expressing the full power of our sexual selves?
In this class, we will examine these contracts, locating where we hold them inside of our bodies and spirits. We will work with magical and practical tools to consciously and deliberately break these contracts, and will write new ones in their place. We will learn ways to mindfully and safely reconnect to our bodies, simple practices for sexual healing and ways to mend the energetic breaks through stone and flower essences.
This six week class is for all self-identifying womxn, femmes, non-binary, gender non-conforming and trans participants. (No cisgender men, please.) This class is for folks who may have already done healing work on their own sexual trauma, and who are ready to move to a deeper layer of that work.
While this is a supportive group setting, if you are new to healing your sexuality or your sexual trauma, we recommend having outside support for yourself during this time. We will work with gentle embodiment practices in this class, and while we will not be going into stories of trauma, we do encourage participants with a trauma history to take extra care of themselves for the duration of this class in the event that the work does bring up any trauma that needs to be addressed in a 1:1 setting.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTORS
MEET LIZ LONG
Message from Liz:
“Hi. I’m Liz, an intuitive healer, channel, and Reiki master.
I believe that we are all surrounded by support and healing at all times, and want to remind others of this truth. I work to connect my clients to their own spiritual guidance, power, and internal knowing -- resources that I believe live within each of us at all times.
I’ve been studying and practicing intuitive healing since 2014. My toolkit includes channeling spirit guides and earth energies, Reiki, working with plants, flower essences, gemstones, and more. With these tools, I seek to provide a sacred, safe and nurturing space for my clients that allows for deep reflection and moving through challenging and stuck spaces.
I seek to operate inside of an anti-oppression framework, and my work lovingly acknowledges that the systems that we live in impact each of our lives in profound ways every day.
I still feel excited every time I do a healing session with a client, and above all I feel incredibly grateful to be able to do this work and to stand in this vulnerable and beautiful space with others. My healing work is also informed by much of the work that I have done with others in recovery groups where I've learned how to hold space, listen deeply, and ask for guidance from a Source of Wisdom that is not my self, but lives in me (and all of us). I love getting to be part of others’ journeys.”
MEET JEEVAN SINGH
Jeevan comes from the Sanskrit जीवन (jīvana), meaning life, or more specifically that which animates every living being. A name that’s fitting, as it speaks to her life’s work - guiding womxn and people with vaginas back into the sanctuaries of their bodies, to reclaim their birthright of aliveness and embodiment.
As a visionary, womb-keeper, herbalist, doctor and guide, Jeevan offers work that is experiential and holistic. She believes that one of the most radical things we can do for ourselves and the collective is to cultivate self-friendship on both a physical and spiritual level. Jeevan aims to provide a container that is inclusive of all identities. Her clinical practice pulses with the seasons, offering womb & pelvic healing, as well as embodiment coaching.
Jeevan holds a doctorate in East Asian Medicine, and is completing a masters in integrative mental health. To learn more about Jeevan, visit her Instagram @flowerhandwellness.
