Women’s Workshop

Healing the Pelvic Floor Workshop at The Esalen Institute

As women we have a unique power of creativity in our reproductive systems. That power is used not only to create new life, but also to bring personal projects into being.

Healing the Pelvic Floor:
Reclaiming Your Power, Sexuality, and Pleasure Potential

However, that energy can be blocked by physical, emotional, or spiritual trauma to the pelvic floor and the female organs. In this course for women, we use guided imagery, movement and hands-on exercises (all done with clothing on) to heal the pelvic floor, including the vagina and uterus, places that often hold our deepest wounds. These wounds include rape, abortions, sexual abuse, surgery, childbirth tearing and scars, self-esteem issues and negative images about our femininity. Because self-knowledge is important, scientific and anatomic information will also be presented, as well as ongoing self-care using pelvic floor yoga and abdominal massage.

Rarely does a course offer the opportunity for the depth of healing that women desire. In these seven days you will experience whole new possibilities for renewed feminine energy, greater health, and a deeper sense of pleasure in being a woman. We will spend time exploring nature and how our connection to the earth deepens our connection to ourselves. The workshop will culminate with a special evening of nurturing at the Esalen natural hot spring baths.

In Your Words: Participant Testimonials

I know that my life has changed from a soul level...

August 3, 2015

A year ago I couldn’t articulate why I felt drawn to do a week long “Healing the Pelvic Floor” workshop for women with Suzanne.

Having just done the workshop, I know that my life has changed from a soul level to every cell in my being. I was able to connect dots from pre-birth memories, family dynamics, and awkward sexual moments when I “froze.”  My adult mind could rationalize it all in order to defend my old wounds from being re-triggered. On the other side of the workshop, I realized how much of my life’s energy was being wasted just trying to hold myself together.

Today I feel safe and full in the ground of my  feminine being.  My inner voice is strengthening as my heart, body and mind unfold in a sensuous wave of exploration.

My experience with the “Healing the Pelvic Floor” is beyond words and my gratitude unmeasurable!

Thank you Suzanne for being you and for embodying clarity, honesty and the trust that it takes to create space for “transformation.”

I have been searching for this work in a women’s circle for over two decades. I feel like I have finally come home, begun to melt my terror and frozenness, and tapped into my own potential to heal others.

In this workshop, I learned to live in my pelvis. Now that I am there I am exploring how to take pleasure in being a woman in my power.
