Webinar Details

Somatic Sex Educators utilize many different models for their work, from solo practice to working collaboratively with partners/spouses, to forming collectives and integrative plans of care with other practitioners. In this webinar, we’ll hear from a panel of three Somatic Sex Educators who have engaged in creative models of practice, including their learnings along the way, their celebrations and their recommendations both for those new to the field and for those seeking to create greater networks of community. The panel will be moderated by Captain Snowdon.

She has authored ‘Trauma: A Guide to Working With Body and Soul’ and ‘Women’s Wisdom: A Guidebook & Card Deck’. She supervises practitioners in myriad healing and wellness fields around the world, and is focused on exploring, identifying and teaching about the elements of healthy, diverse human community within an ailing and uncertain world.

One of the core teachings of this new professional modality is a focus on what she calls the ‘communal model’: the practice of weaving webs of care across modalities and diverse practitioners to hold clients, couples and families with more wholistic, integrative, intelligent and successful healing and wholing plans.
