  • This innovative 12-week programme offers powerful tools to help you to reconnect with your sexuality and erotic self- however long it has been. 
     

  • Back to Sex meets you with where you are at this moment in your life and on your journey with sexuality.
    It is not only about having sex again-or for the first time-with yourself and others, but understanding that your sexuality is vast, so much bigger than a single sexual act. Humour, creativity, working with creative tools towards your goals and finding your own pace and what's doable for you, are all part of the journey.

     

  • We will work with self enquiry, somatic exercises, group sharing and creative tools such as free-writing, movement, breathwork and inner journeys, rituals & ceremony.
     

  • You will get the sex ed you might have never had, uncover limiting beliefs, tackle obstacles, reconnect with your erotic energy and get to know yourself as the gorgeous erotic, sexual being you are. ​
     

  • You will be encouraged to give yourself permission to talk about sex, bust and release areas of shame and myths about sex that no longer serve you, find a voice for your wishes and desires and make gentle and real steps to reconnect with and reclaim your sexuality. 
     

  • Back to Sex also offers exciting ways to investigate and express aspects of identity: gender, sexuality, race &culture, to support healing and resilience and to find an empowered voice. 

  • The Back to Sex programme can also be a supportive and bonding experience with a group of fellow explorers. In camaraderie, Community and solidarity, we counter isolation and celebrate one another. 

Back to Sex is a potent 12-week coaching programme.

 

There are many reasons why people have given up on sex, sometimes for a very long time. But sex is important, our birthright and a powerful life force. 

 

  • Are you feeling starved for touch or uncomfortable to be touched? 

  • Do you find it difficult to know what you want sexually or to ask for it? 

  • Do you feel trapped in situations in which you feel you cannot live your sexuality?

  • Do you find it difficult to accept and love your body and experience yourself as an erotic, sexual being?

  • Have you experienced circumstances that made you close down sexually and you wonder who you are now as an erotic being and how to re-connect with your sexuality again? 

 

If any of this resonates, I invite you to join me on a journey BACK TO SEX: reconnect with pleasure, desire & confidence and reclaim the joy of your sexuality!

Guiding you deep into the body, you will learn  powerful tools that you can use in your everyday life to connect with your unique erotic energy.


Whether you feel disheartened, hopeless, disconnected or broken, there is always a way forward. 

It takes courage to look at obstacles to pleasure and a fulfilled sexuality, but no difficulty is insurmountable. 

Through deep inner listening, breathwork, exercises in nervous system regulation, movement, and many others tools.

You will look at cultural and personal myths and learn to listen to the voice and wisdom of your body.

 

When we foster ways to connect with the body - compassionately and in consistent, doable steps - and listen to what it has to tell us, we can tap into the huge reservoir of resources, stories, wisdom, strength & resilience that the body truly is.

The course is limited to an intimate group of 10 participants so we can dive deep and you will have plenty of support. 

I would love you to join us on this transformative journey!

‘The more whole we are as sexual beings, 

the more fulfilled we are as human beings. Amy Jo Goddard

WHY EXPLORE Back to Sex in Community? 

Being in community and sharing with others is an important part of the Back to Sex- experience.

Community creates camaraderie and accountability, which supports us throughout the journey.

In this powerful cauldron we learn from one another and experience that we are not alone, but part of a rich fabric of creative, sexy beings.

Working in a group can help lessen isolation and foster a sense of belonging and hope. We can be supportive mirrors for one other, reflecting different aspects and facets of one another, pooling ideas, resources and finding creative ways of addressing obstacles.

The Back to Sex-programme is kept to an intimate group of up to 10 companions.
You will have a private Facebook group throughout and after the course and the opportunity to link up with one other or two as accountability buddies.

I would truly love to welcome you to the Back to Sex Community of this speak to you!

Session detail is subject to change

  • MODULE 1 - Laying the Ground: Resourcing & Orientating for the Journey
    In this first module you will learn several simple yet powerful tools that we will re-visit throughout the programme, such as body-scan, orienting and grounding exercises and a movement and a potent writing practice ‘from the body to the page’. By moving our bodies in different ways; gently or with large, expansive movements, shaking, stretching etc, we can move blocks and obstacles, shake out difficult emotions, shift stagnant energy and create space for inspiration and flow. We will explore how to stay in the learning zone & explore powerful exercises you can apply to in your every day life and writing.
  • MODULE 2 - Understanding & Befriending Our Nervous System
    Arriving in the NOW. Writing from the Body aims to help us to arrive in the present and to become aware and educated about our nervous system. You will learn about your habitual nervous system patterns when it comes to writing and learn tools to regulate your nervous system. How do we meet the various challenges of the writing life, such as writer’s block, anxiety in regards to creating new material, completing or showing work to others? You will learn about: How fight, flight, freeze and fawn/appease responses might show up when it comes to creativity and writing Effective somatic tools to self regulate the nervous system, deal with hyper arousal, anxiety & distraction Exercises such as Heart-Math breathing, down-regulating breath and a powerful technique that combines breath and affirmations
  • MODULE 3 - Transforming Resistance: Breathwork for Inspiration & Wellbeing
    In this module we explore breath as our most important life force energy and ally and how we can harness it for inspiration and wellbeing. If we consciously engage with breath, we can give breath to our writing and release blockages. In becoming aware of breath and by consciously breathing, we can still our minds, release resistance and what no longer serves, and draw in life force energy to expand and invigorate ourselves and our writing. This week I will introduce different breathwork techniques: Open mouth breathing vs nose breathing Conscious connected breathwork process I also offer a chakra breath journey. All exercises can be adapted.
  • MODULE 4 - Writing from the Senses: Generating Authentic, Original Writing by Tuning into the Senses"
    Consciously connecting with all of our senses is crucial for writers and anyone who wants be be fully alive. As we take in the world through our senses, it is also where the juicy, visceral details of our writing originates. This week we explore: How we can generate alive, original writing from engaging with all our senses Exercises to harness deeper awareness of our senses for our writing Attending to smell, hearing/sound, touch, taste, extra-sensory perception/intuition Writing from prompts that relating to our sensations A powerful exercise by Betty Martin, author of ‘The Wheel of Consent’
  • MODULE 5 - Releasing Blocks & Stuck Energy through EFT/Tapping
    There are excellent exercises from the world of body-psychotherapy that can support us to relief tension, stress and even trauma, such as EFT/Tapping (Emotional Freedom Technique), TRE (Trauma Release Exercises) and Bioenergetic Exercises. Even though deep trauma work is best done in the context of therapy and with experienced trauma-informed practitioners, EFT techniques to release stress and tension can be learned easily and practiced by oneself. Combined with free-writing after such exercises, they become potent healing tools.
  • MODULE 6 - Gut Feelings & Speaking from the Belly
    Deep Listening & Inner Body Journeys When we show up with openness, curiosity and a willingness to learn, we can listen to parts of our bodies and engage in deep inner dialogue. This deep listening to what our body wants to communicate with us can be a radical tool to unearth powerful personal material, beyond cliches. This week I will introduce an inner guided journey into the body and inner dialogue as a way into embodied writing. We will: Write from what we discover on an inner body-journey, guided dialogue and deep body listening Engage with different parts of the body: a journey into the gut, the back, the heart, the lungs
  • MODULE 7 - Writing Down the Bones: Writing from our Deep Essence
    If we excavate the bones of our personal, ancestral and bodily histories, what will we find? This week we will look at our skeletal system, back and spine. The adult human skeleton has over two hundred bones, each with its own story to tell. The skeleton is our scaffold, our support, protecting our organs, allowing us to move. Bones are what will remain long after we die. As ‘backbones, they connect with structure and essence in our life and our writing. We will: Explore the symbology of bones, back and spine and harness this for our writing Ask about our WHY, and what the essence of our writing is Explore our support system: what stories can we find in our back and spine?
  • MODULE 8 - The Map of our Body: Body Cartography, Writing from Marks & Scars"
    Approaching the body with compassion, we pay attention to the physical scars on the body and write the memories of how the scars originated, such as though childhood falls, accidents, childbirth etc. This can also be done with areas of the body that experience pain or have experienced pain in the past. Of course this can also bring up memories of emotional scars, but wherever the journey takes us, to write it down can bring release and lead us to self-compassion, acceptance and self love. This week we will attend to and write from and inspired by: The map of our bodies Scars, wounds, marks, tatoos - body inscriptions
  • MODULE 9 - Writing the Wild: Re-Wilding the Body, Re-Wilding our Writing"
    Sometimes our writing becomes stale and predictable and we, in turn, might feel stale and ache for adventure and to give space to the wild parts in us. How we can nurture our wild, untamed parts and harness those for our writing? This week we attend to Re-wilding: as we re-wild our writing, our writing supports the re-wilding of our lives and vice versa. By connecting or re-connecting with the aliveness of our bodies, we can enliven our writing, find more depth, break through stagnation and boredom and move beyond superficiality. We can find pleasure through exploring our five senses and nourishing our wild soul, our untamed nature, through immersing ourselves in nature. Writing from such a source often surprises us - it brings flow, authenticity, depth and expansion - as if when we dive deep into the body and into our wild nature, our writing can gain a different perspective: it too gets expanded and wild. This week: We become aware of where our conditioning shows up: in our habits, our bodies and in our writing. We explore how we can move from outworn cliches to original writing, digging deep into our most personal metaphors. We tap into writing prompts about our Wild Soul and explore what ‘re-wilding’ means to each of us in our lives, such as deepening our connection with nature or engaging in ecstatic practices.
  • MODULE 10 - Writing from the Erotic Bosy/Reclaiming the Pleasure Body
    ‘I feel like all my wounds have been painted golden in this process.’ Participant ‘Writing from the Erotic Body’ Creativity and sexuality are our birthright and hold incredible power, but often we have been shamed or censored in our expressions, leading us to hide, dampen or shut down those powerful sources. Yet they flow like an underground river of unlimited energy through our lives, a source we can tap into whenever we chose to. Writing from the Body can support our sensual, erotic & sexual being. Connecting with eros can support our writing; through raising erotic energy in the body we create more embodied aliveness and a beautiful foundation for expressing our creativity. This week we will explore: A meditative practice How writing from the body can support sexuality and the reclamation of pleasure How to wake up our erotic bodies through movement, breathwork and, if wished, conscious self-touch What happens when we bring sensuality and pleasure to our writing and write from a juicy, sensually awake place
  • MODULE 11 - Body Metaphors: Get Your Teeth into it and Write From Your Belly
    The body as a symbol system. We will collect body metaphors and explore the personal metaphors and symbols significant in our lives and our writing. We also attend to the theme of skin: The skin is our container, boundary between ourselves and the world Feeling at home, in our skin (or not); the politics of skin, skin colour Shedding skin - what does not serve us any longer What happens when the skin speaks?
  • MODULE 12 - Completion, Celebration, Visioning"
    We will revisit some of the tools and you will have time to review your notes, share in small groups and the large group. You might want to set some intentions for the journey forward to implement the teaching. We will explore: What were the treasures of the programme for you? What tools were most powerful for you and why? How can you apply these in your life and in your writing?

"Eva provides a calm and gentle space in which to explore sex and sexuality.

Highly recommended if you are nervous but curious about getting to know yourself more as a sexual being.

"Eva works in an incredibly supportive manner employing powerful techniques to provide a safe space for deep exploration. She also does it with a light touch, sensitivity and compassion. I felt a new experience with my sexuality. Thank you for a life affirming experience! " Jon Stein, aka Pricilla 

"This course was a great discovery for me: to understand that I have carried guilt, shame and taken responsibility for everyone around me. I have learnt that I can take back my own sexual power which came as a huge relief! 

‘I highly recommend Eva’s Back to Sex course.I t has enabled me for the first time in my life to understand myself. I have been able to reclaim my sexual energy and feel empowered and excited about the future. Thank you so much, Eva."

 

"Eva is a sensitive and skilled facilitator guiding the group gently towards some challenging stuff without it ever feeling chaotic- I totally recommend this work." 

" I have completed a 'Back to Sex' course with Eva and then continued with individual coaching sessions. 

I was drawn to doing this work as I had experienced sexual abuse and trauma and felt a need to understand what had happened to me and to begin the healing process.

I also wanted to reclaim my sexuality and understand my boundaries, empower myself and learn about consent.

This work has given me a voice, helped me understand consent and how to verbalise my boundaries, dispel the myths I held about sex and old conditioning and learn how to navigate new relationships.

 

I experienced deep healing from trauma and feelings of abandonment and rejection and I learned how to connect with my own sexual energy and deeply honour myself. Thank you."  PL

Erotic Awakening picture-page-001.jpg

" I can sum up this course as the shedding of a skin, a raw and vulnerable energy emerging from a disconnection between head, heart & our lower body. 

I absolutely loved the weekly process. Eva is a wonderful, sage & loving facilitator with a lot of natural wisdom. Thank you." 

"This course is so needed! Thank you for holding the space and giving me more tools to explore myself on this journey of mine. The journey back to sex is full of so many things: insights, love, reflections and aha moments."

"It was so good to be able to explore collectively, playfully and seriously issues that are rarely discussed or shared. To go deep into one's mind, body and heart in a positive environment ."

EW


 

"This course and the compassion within the group, has guided a deep understanding and acceptance of my sexual nature. It has been a deep, sometimes difficult, joyful reconnection and understanding what sex means to me."A

"Eva's course has given me more than I knew I even needed. Each evening was lovingly and safely guided by Eva- for all my resistance I knew I just had to keep coming back, and it’s been immeasurably worth it for me.  

The group provided a safe, loving space, where each individual offered up a facet of myself to explore- fascinating work. 

Each exercise gave me new tools and helped me towards new realisations, new ways of seeing, new insights. If the course calls to you in any way, I say just give it a go!  " K

"Eva has a great understanding of life and sex. She used this breadth of knowledge to help me to take action to improve my life both generally and sexually. " 

"I highly recommend working with Eva. She is a genuinely warm and caring soul who knows how to make you feel at ease. She is highly knowledgeable and uses a wide range of techniques. 

Eva helped me to understand myself better and enabled a safe environment in which I could start to heal my wounds around my sexuality."  ZM

"Eva's vast wisdom, skill and capacity to create a safe and accepting space made it possible for me to go deep into myself and heal. 

I have opened to the wisdom of my sexual self and it is a joyous power to behold! 

I feel like I have more of myself back now and feel in a good position to move forward in my life, not only sexually but in other areas too. 

I am so incredibly grateful for Eva and her important work in the world."

I would love to welcome you to our BACK TO SEX Community!
