When we touch, we touch people’s entire history, their deepest wounds, their secret identity, their healing powers and their most profound capacity for joy. Touch that is meant to offer pleasure can slip unwittingly into hurt and harm.
In the Intimacy Educator program Caffyn taught for a decade, participants learned and practiced body-based techniques for healing, pleasure and empowerment, with careful attention to the weave of sex and soul. There are many benefits, and precautions necessary, in the practice of Sacred Intimacy.
Caffyn teaches on the neurobiology of pleasure and the impact of trauma on the autonomic nervous system. There is a focus on empowering choice and voice, plus massage, genital anatomy, genital dearmouring, and exploring the intersection of sex and spirit.
Caffyn notes, “Practiced with loving energy and sacred intent, erotic massage invites us to come fully into our bodies, and our capacity for joy. We can heal the shame and pain that so often surrounds and suffocates sexual expression.”
“With the encouragement of a skillful practitioner, or trusted friend, we can learn to speak our truth and ask for what we want, while staying fully present to our body sensation.”
“And when we redeem our sexuality from shame and fear, we enter a matrix of body, mind, spirit and emotions. Transforming ourselves, we change the world.”
People take this course because they feel called to help others access the joy and power of erotic energy. To do so, we need a deep willingness to explore our own erotic identity. And we need to be prepared for the many complexities that can arise in erotic bodywork.
Caffyn is has put this unique program into an online format that can be accessed affordably, from around the world. This course can be taken as professional education, as a joyful journey of personal transformation and inspiration, for deepening relationship and intimacy, and for all of these reasons.
This is a program is for grounded, ethical, passionate, self-directed learners who feel a calling to this path.
Participants come to this work from a wide range of experiences and backgrounds. Some will be skilled practitioners of Sacred Intimacy who want to refresh and expand, and some will be people who are brand new to the field, but who feel a strong calling to it.
Course description from a participant:
“I am still echoing with the effect of the training. Well, the echo will probably simply grow louder in my life… Simply paradigm changing for me. I am so deeply grateful… It awakened in me a new and ancient knowing of my own erotic freedom. A wisdom waiting to blossom is opening like the springtime in me. Bliss and satisfaction and an inspiration to share this with others. Thank you for offering this profound work. I am so deeply touched by the possibilities of awareness and well-being that it presents to the world!”
