Free webinar with John Gillespie – event description:

Talking about sex, our sexual bodies and personalities can bring to the surface aspects of shame, isolation, trauma, privilege/oppression dynamics, and spiritual identity can be extracted from the everyday personality and encoded in our sexual self. These parts of ourselves can often remain untouched during therapy training, or even therapy itself, because of the combination of taboos, degrees of trust and personal intimacy that are necessary to share our sexual selves.

The webinar can serve as an introduction to the October workshop. It will provide insight into the work of John Gillespie and enable participants to work more comfortably with clients’ experiences of sex and/or achieve a greater degree of personal comfort around sex.
