This advanced 3-day workshop's theme is "Body Shame, Naked Work and Sexuality" and it's suitable only for persons who have previously attended other Radical Honesty workshops (or who have consent of the trainer).
To help us get over any shame/fear/taboos we might have created for ourselves, during the workshop we'll all get naked and talk in the front of both the group and a video camera. We'll describe what we like and don’t like about our bodies. We'll tell our sexual preferences/histories: when we first discovered we were a sexual being, when we first masturbated, whether we prefer men/women/vegetables, the number of partners we've had, our best/worst sexual experiences, etc. We will then watch snippets of our videos to see our naked selves talking about our bodies/sexuality and experience how that is for us.
Everyone always thinks this will be a sexy experience. So far, it has never been very sexyall. Mostly it's about embarrassment and shame and suffering more than pleasure, and about how avoidance of all those aspects often controls our lives. Though, with good coaching from the trainer, complete sharing of the truth and support from the group, we will face our shame/fears/taboos and get over them. And most likely, we’ll appreciate ourselves and others for doing this work and live more fulfilling lives with less shame about ourselves.
By being thoroughly and compassionately honest about the “secrets” of our bodies/sexuality, we'll practice being a more honest being and create deeper love, connection & intimacy.
