What unconscious sexual beliefs are we carrying that prevent us from fully inhabiting our sexual bodies with joy and without shame? What contracts have we willingly or unwillingly made with ourselves and our world that keep us from expressing the full power of our sexual selves?
In this class, we will examine these contracts, locating where we hold them inside of our bodies and spirits. We will work with magical and practical tools to consciously and deliberately break these contracts, and will write new ones in their place. We will learn ways to mindfully and safely reconnect to our bodies, simple practices for sexual healing and ways to mend the energetic breaks through stone and flower essences. This class is cofacilitated by myself (Liz Long) and my good friend, colleague and work-wife for life, Jeevan Singh. (See below for more about both of us).
This six week class is for all self-identifying womxn, femmes, non-binary, gender non-conforming and trans participants. (No cisgender men, please.) This class is for folks who may have already done healing work on their own sexual trauma, and who are ready to move to a deeper layer of that work.
While this is a supportive group setting, if you are new to healing your sexuality or your sexual trauma, we recommend having outside support for yourself during this time. We will work with gentle embodiment practices in this class, and while we will not be going into stories of trauma, we do encourage participants with a trauma history to take extra care of themselves for the duration of this class in the event that the work does bring up any trauma that needs to be addressed in a 1:1 setting.

about the instructors
Jeevan comes from the Sanskrit जीवन (jīvana), meaning life, or more specifically that which animates every living being. A name that’s fitting, as it speaks to her life’s work - guiding womxn and people with vaginas back into the sanctuaries of their bodies, to reclaim their birthright of aliveness and embodiment.
As a visionary, womb-keeper, herbalist, doctor and guide, Jeevan offers work that is experiential and holistic. She believes that one of the most radical things we can do for ourselves and the collective is to cultivate self-friendship on both a physical and spiritual level. Jeevan aims to provide a container that is inclusive of all identities. Her clinical practice pulses with the seasons, offering womb & pelvic healing, as well as embodiment coaching.
Jeevan holds a doctorate in East Asian Medicine, and is completing a masters in integrative mental health. To learn more about Jeevan, visit her Instagram @flowerhandwellness or her website: https://flowerhandwellness.com.
Hi! I’m Liz Long. I am a white, queer intuitive healer and channel who connects people to their own innate sources of strength, guidance and wisdom. I’m from warm lands of the Caddo and Apache in Austin, Texas and now live on Chinook lands in Portland. My heritage stretches back to the green plains of Ireland, if I had to pick a religion it would be salted butter, and I am an amateur pole dancer.
My work as a channel connects me to people’s spirit guides, our earth, and to the voice of our evolving consciousness. I sometimes think that what I hear when I channel is the sound of our future ancestors, future selves, future world, calling us home. This information is always grounded in a kind of love that feels so pure and foundational that it is hard for me to even believe it. It brings me such joy to share this channeled love and wisdom with folks via weekly transmissions (on my blog and instagram @youcanradiateit ), in the classes that I teach, and in my 1:1 work where I channel spirit guide and earth energies for my clients.
I’m also a reiki master, and I work with plants, stones, and other willing allies. I’m working daily to approach my life from a place of pleasure. I believe that self healing is collective healing, and that addressing how we’ve internalized systems of oppression — both where we experience privilege and dominance — is a part of each of our individual healing journeys.
