A Fathers Guide to Healthy Conversations with Teens in a Changing World
- Raising Evolution Part 1
The world is rapidly changing for Men and for what it means to raise our children in this world.
This workshop tackles some of the most important topics that have not traditionally been explored deeply by many men... designed to help guide some understanding around what it means to raise our kids, and indeed ourselves, in this new world and empowering us all to embrace our fullest human potential.
Male-bodied teens are very welcome to join you for this workshop.
Hosted by Kate Alderman and Kevin Chan********
This is a fully clothed workshop and is for people in male bodies only – teenagers and adults.
An adult participant must accompany participants under 18 years of age.
And you don’t need to be in a relationship to benefit from this workshop, what we’ll explore will greatly enhance your understanding of Self and will bring benefits to future relationship/s.
Everything we need and want to know about intimacy and pleasure is not covered in school sex education, and most of us didn’t grow up in sex-positive environments where we could ask parents how to become good at intimacy and experience more pleasure.
With sex and related topics falling in the taboo category, many seek answers and education via magazines and instantly available pornography. Unfortunately these resources are not the reality of love and intimacy, and instead create feelings of performance anxiety, fear of expectation and agenda, and a warped body image. Many people are connecting with others with an overactive mind rather than being, feeling and expressing from the body.
-Would you like to feel more embodied?
-Would you like to feel more sexually empowered?
-Would you like to feel more confident during intimacy?
-Would you like to better understand people in female bodies and learn ways to powerfully communicate?
-Are you longing for more intimacy and connection?
-Would you like to expand your pleasure potential?
If your wish is for your children to also feel this empowerment and understanding for themselves, but you’re not sure exactly how, this workshop is for you.
This workshop shines light on what’s missing within intimate relationships to create new levels of understanding, communication and pathways to fulfilling and empowered intimacy.
In this workshop we’ll explore:
- Consent and boundaries
- Full body consent – “fuck yes” and “fuck no”
- Embodied intimacy and empowered communication
- Self indulgence – expressing your needs and desires
- Pathways to deep and fulfilling pleasure
- Reclaiming sexual empowerment
- The myth of telepathy
- Normalising Self-Pleasure
- Understanding the menstrual cycle and how to speak with partner about this
- Healthy Primal instincts Vs Unhealthy Primal instincts
All of the nourishing Somatic practices and exercises are offered as an invitation and opportunity to explore and learn. Your level of participation is your choice. Please dress comfortably.
“I see many male-bodied clients who are not able to express their needs, and many feel guilty about their desires. Many express that they wish they had this education as teenagers. Many people have been exposed to sexual taboo and are not practiced in communicating their body’s needs and desires confidently.”
“I was drawn to this path for my own embodied healing and this naturally inspired my passion to share this with others. I often experienced pain and discomfort during sex, and my pathway to healing included me gaining a deep understanding of people in male bodies on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. I’m very passionate about working with both male and female-bodied clients, bridging the gaps of misunderstanding, and providing opportunities for somatic learning and experiencing. I’m excited to share all of this with you, it’s made a huge difference in my world, and feedback from clients expressing the difference it’s making for them, lights me up and inspires me to share more.”
