Celebrating the Body Erotic for Women

In a safe, serious and playful space that respects boundaries, embrace pleasure and experience your body as powerful, expressive and sacred. The class expands awareness and sensation through a process of breath, movement and touch. Each woman’s choices and rhythms are honored and celebrated.

This workshop is for women of all sexual orientations and ages who are ready to learn about their own power to illuminate and enjoy sexuality and sensuality within a community of women.

During the program of carefully designed embodiment practices women will:

  • explore the innate wisdom of the body
  • expand awareness, sensation and pleasure through conscious breath, movement, touch, and communication, where each woman’s choices and rhythms are honored
  • learn how to more deeply tune in to your body, mind, heart and spirit: to receive more fully from yourself and others, and to give without losing yourself
  • learn to give and receive full-body massage and to focus on the healing potential of sensual/spiritual energy
  • learn from your own and others’ unfolding, and feel awed witnessing and supporting our uniqueness and commonalities

Celebrating the Body Erotic runs Friday evening from 6:30-10 PM and runs all day Saturday and Sunday (9 AM-7 PM).

Celebrating the Body Erotic for Women is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best things I've ever done I consider myself fairly liberal. The description I heard about the program scared the bejeezus out of me. It took me sometime to come to terms with the idea that maybe the fear I was feeling was simply in reaction to something that I might find difficult. Being a true believer in you get what you are willing to put it I decided to go to the Women's CBE. I went with a friend and we decided that we wouldn't work with each other as to get as much "other" experiences as possible. There were challenging times, but I was completely amazed at the facilitators/ counsellors. Their ability to create a safe, trusting, almost sacred environment among strangers so quickly. My friend and I each left having learned drastically different things about ourselves. It was like a year of intensive psycho-therapy in 3 days. I felt honoured to have been in that space and am thankful, not only to the staff, but also to the other women who were there... thankful for their openness and sharing... for making me feel like their family. I went back a few years later, taking a friend who was going through a bad time. I was just there to be her support and was, again, amazed at the insight into myself and the lessons I learned, and how much they differed from what she walked away with. Later I went to the co-ed class with my partner. Both our minds were blown and we left feeling like we had a new understanding of ourselves as a couple. I was amazed at the things that men shared in that space. Problems I always thought only women were experiencing... it made me realize how much more similar the sexes are than different. Since then I have sent 2 nephews to the CBE for men. Both of them used words like grounding, self-affirming, and sacred to describe their experiences. They too expressed thankfulness to the staff and other participants. I will be sending my niece this spring. She is nervous but after having heard the experiences of her brothers she is excited to see what she will learn. I wish I had done something like this in my early 20's! It would have set me on a track to comfort in my own body, knowing when I am giving vs receiving, recognizing my boundaries, thinking it is ok to express them, and finally being able to not only know, but also to communicate what I want. In a perfect world this would be part of the secondary school curriculum. I look forward to exploring Power and Surrender at some point in this coming up year! I cannot recommend this program enough.

In a separate question, the answer indicated that the NYC program is not residential - what about the Victoria program? Thanks

Asked by: Marie
Neither are residential programs. However, accommodations are available onsite for the Victoria workshop. Please contact the coordinator (victoria@b-e-school.com) for more information. As a rule of thumb, if a program is residential, it will be stated that in the workshop description.

It is not clear - is the workshop residential? Where does it take place? Meals and lodging are included in the price? Thank you.

Asked by: rascal
No, the New York program is not a residential program and therefore meals and lodging are not included. The location is in midtown Manhattan and will be advised upon registration The coordinator can recommend possible housing options.

When/Where is this next happening? Can I be part of the coordinating crew that brings this to the SF Bay Area.

Asked by: Francesca
The new schedule will be up soon but the next women's workshop will be in Victoria BC March 27-29, 2015. Contact the coordinator, Sher, at victoria@b-e-school.com for more information. We would love to have your support in the Bay Area! We ask that coordinators have the experience of at least two Body Electric workshops so that they have a clear understanding of this work. There may be some flexibility given one's background. Write me at tberry@b-e-school.com and let's discuss.

on your website, I see that you offer a lot of workshops for men.  How often do you have workshops for women.  

Asked by: regina
Hi, Regina! Thank you for your question and your interest in our programming for women. The honest truth is: Not enough! We currently have women coordinators in Victoria (BC), San Antonio (TX) and New York City. We would love to see more women who have experienced and support our programming to take on this role in their cities. Women's workshops will take place in all three cities in 2015. It also takes a lot for women to get the nerve to come to a workshop. So often, attendance is limited. We are hoping with testimonials on the website, questions like yours, and general comments and star ratings, we will see greater interest and enrollment. Come support us and have an experience that could change your life!

Is this a residential workshop? If so, where in New York City is it located? If so, then the price is all inclusive and reflects housing and meals? Thank you
