Looking At The Vital Interplay Of Sexuality, Aggression, Transgression & Excess
Sexuality was once at the very heart of Reichian, neo-Reichian, and body-centered models of psychotherapy and health. This seems often to no longer be the case. In this seminar, we will begin to explore the meanings of sexuality, aggression, transgression and excess.
We will look at their links and associations, the resulting ambiguities of enlivened pleasure and pain, and how wrestling with these ambiguities are essential to our experience of vitality, and to the formulation of new meanings.
At The Working Edge
- Each of us may have experiences of our bodies—our identities and sexualities—that are so private and delicate that we can find it nearly impossible to speak of them to anyone. Some of us may have one or two trusted people with whom we can talk of these matters. This is often true for clients and professionals alike.
- How can we learn to discuss these important dimensions of human life at professional and community levels where meaning is also made, where behaviors are deemed permissible or forbidden, and where identity is often shaped through countless, complex interactions?
