Sex, Power and The Shadow
The Witch, The Bitch, The Dyke and The Whore*
The Villain,The Prick, The Fag and The C**t
What do these marginalized archetypes mean to you? Have any or all of these labels been used against you negatively? Have you ever been accused, judged, shamed or vilified for expressing your sexual power? Or maybe you have rejected these parts of yourself and others as being bad, unacceptable or too dangerous; fearful of being torn down if and when you stand in your power.
In this workshop we will dive in deep to address these torn down parts, through a two hour journey into your shadow, into your sexual self. Exploring what the ‘dark side’ means for each of us, including provocative and evocative exercises to find our deep expression, our voice. We will use ritual, evocative music, myth and meaning, as a means of bringing home the explosive, rich and powerful archetypes, including the disowned, ridiculed or feared parts, that keep us locked in, locked up and ultimately separate. For the catch is that what we do not own, ends up owning us. By owning our deepest desires we empower ourselves, and in turn invite more room for real and meaningful connection with ourselves and others, embracing a juicier, more satisfying and genuine lifestyle of our own choosing. This workshop may be scary, it may be fun, it may be outrageous; it will definitely be confronting. I can’t wait!
This workshop is open to all genders; embracing all sexual and gender diversity, beyond the male/female binary, removing the belief that only two genders can exist and that feminine energy only comes from women and masculine energy only comes from men.
*A big, hearty thank you to Barbara Carrellas for introducing and encouraging me to work with these four Archetypes.
From Hells Angels bikie chick to Sex and Relationship Counsellor, I have been a promoter and educator of conscious sexuality, sensuality and feminine energy work for over 20 years. My journey started as a turbulent initiation into the psyche, both dark and light, where I sometimes unwittingly and other times consciously explored my bottomless and sometimes murky pit of riches, creativity, demons, wisdom, insight, despair, rage, passion, madness, desire, intensity, lust, compassion, deep pleasure and pain, all to bring the delectable, wild woman within back home.
In the 80’s my love of acting and drama took me into improvisational performance, including Theatre Sports, as well as a stint as Night Manager of The Last Laugh.
My journey took me to studies and qualifications in Transpersonal Counselling, Traditional Tao, Urban Tantra, Total Touch Therapy, Deep Tissue Massage, Humanistic Astrology and Mythology. I am a Registered Body Awakening Therapist, Self declared Ritual Queen, and an Enrolment Counsellor and Consultant for the Hoffman Quadrinity Process. I had the privilege of meeting and working with Barbara Carrellas and Chester Mainard, two of the worlds most experienced and enlightened sexual healing pioneers, in Australia and with Chester at the Body Electric School in California. They have been my most dear teachers, mentors and partners in crime ever since.
In 1991 I founded ‘Creative Harmony; Sacred Journeys for Women’ followed by ‘Sensual Harmony workshops’, ‘Sexuality and Soul’, and ‘Relationship Renewal’ – the last two being offered to men and women. I also became a co-facilitator of ‘The Dark Side’ one day workshops exploring the Shadow, along with running ongoing groups on conscious relating and sexuality.
I have co-written articles on sexuality in The Age and appeared as guest speaker for numerous seminars and have been interviewed on sexuality issues on Love TV, 3RRR and 3BPS.
After years of deep sea diving, I have come up for air and often spend time lying on a rock, soaking up the warmth of the sun, contemplating, integrating, before diving down again for more buried treasure. In this work I am always reminded of the magnificent power and beauty that exists in all of us when we choose to look beyond our conditioning. Deep pleasure and deep gratitude abound.
Deeper Orgasm for Women
……a sensual journey into our bodies!
“Every moment is an orgasmic possibility”
All women are gifted with incredible bodies designed for deep pleasure, transformation and creativity.
This is not coincidental or cute, this is profoundly important!
Through Qi-‐gong, yoga, sound, breath and relaxation we will gently dive into our bodies deeper and deeper, encouraging our unique energy, re-‐connecting and/or enhancing our life-‐force, our pleasure.
Softening into our feminine essence, cultivating and knowing the powerful energy that moves through our bodies is to awaken to who we truly
are and what magnificent qualities we bring to the planet…… to be comfortable with our sexuality, sensuality, to breathe into our spaciousness……to honour our body wisdom is an essential part of being a women.
This session is designed for all women of all orgasmic experience.

“Choosing to walk my orgasmic landscape has been a full journey and one that continues daily. From not being able to orgasm to floating in the most exquisite orgasmic realms. My orgasm is my teacher, she has shone the light on some very hidden and painful parts of me as she has shown me what a glorious woman I am. As a mum and partner and part of a beautiful community I am continually making the choice to bring my sex energy into my daily life.”
