Featuring daily practice meditations to drop you deeper into your body, deeper into presence and getting your more in touch with your sensual nature.

Are you looking to reconnect to your body's wisdom?
Life is meant to be lived and felt through the body, not just the mind!
In our busy, stressful, overwhelming lives we can gradually disconnect from our bodies, numb ourselves and feel less of life, which has its function in self-protection to feel less of the UNCOMFORTABLE aspects of life, but also results in us feeling less of the GOOD stuff too.
This course will give you a variety of short, effective daily practices for you to cultivate a deeper connection with your body's wisdom and increase your sensitivity to pleasure, supporting you to feel more alive, empowered and connected.
Awakening the body through Somatics
What exactly are somatics, and how do they intertwine with sensuality?
Somatics is the practice of connecting with your body's innate intelligence, listening to its whispers and celebrating its expressions. It's the practice of connecting the mind and body, which in our culture has been 'split'.
As you delve into the world of somatic practices, you'll realize that your body is more than just a vessel—it's a gateway to pleasure, self-discovery, and authentic living.
Our course seamlessly weaves somatic principles and practices with sensual embodiment work, allowing you to explore the realms of your body's sensations, movements, and energies like never before.
Inspired by Tantric Yoga, this course also emphasises meditative awareness on the senses and enhancing your experience of consciousness through the body.
The Power of Daily Practice
Nurturing Your Sensual Self
Creating deep and lasting changes in the way you relate to your body takes time.
Real transformation takes some patience and practice, forming a new relationship to yourself and a new way of living and experiencing the world. A lot of people try out workshops and events, then wonder why the effects don't 'stick' and they are left feeling disconnected and struggling weeks later. It's because this work takes time, and needs regular practice to really re-write neural pathways.
"On average, it takes more than 2 months before a new behavior becomes automatic — 66 days to be exact. And how long it takes a new habit to form can vary widely depending on the behavior, the person, and the circumstances. In Lally’s study, it took anywhere from 18 days to 254 days for people to form a new habit." - James Clear
We've created this course to contain simple yet deeply powerful practices that you can use daily, and keep revisiting over the weeks, months and years. They're short practices (10-20 minutes each) to make them accessible for folks who have a busy life, or to be added to a longer daily embodiment or spiritual practice. We wanted to create a course that felt easy to commit to, knowing that short regular practice can offer more 'fruits' than longer ones rarely done.
Imagine embracing a daily ritual that revitalizes your senses, nurtures your soul, and guides you towards a more embodied, pleasurable and engaged life.
A daily practice isn't just a routine; it's a commitment to yourself, an act of self-love that empowers you to come into alignment with your true, authentic nature and alter the way you interact with the world.
Through consistent engagement with the Sensualist Essentials practices, you'll witness the gradual transformation of your relationship with your body.
Each day becomes an opportunity to cultivate presence, harness energy, and elevate your experience of life to new heights. You also create more self-trust through the discipline of practice out of love for yourself and your life.Sign up now!
A path to wholeness
Healing Trauma Through Sensual Embodiment
Sensuality and embodiment practices have an incredible capacity to heal.Pleasure is essential for creating resiliency in the system and helping your body to come into a state of healing and integration.
Trauma, whether emotional or physical, can leave imprints that impact our sense of self and connection to our bodies. It causes a split between body and mind, and can draw us into numbing or dissociative behaviors, or emotional reactivity and armouring.
The Sensualist Essentials course offers a sanctuary where you can gently navigate the realms of your body, releasing tensions and fears that may have lingered, and opening you to a new, empowering relationship with your body.
We have practices for grounding a resourcing in the support of the earth, working gently and somatically with the emotions and creating a loving connection to the sensations in your body.
As you embrace sensations, movement, and breath, you'll gradually rewrite the narrative of your body, restoring trust and fostering a profound sense of wholeness and inner safety.
These are gentle practices that give a slow, gradual approach to healing. If you're experiencing a lot of trauma, you may need additional therapeutic support beyond this course. This course can be an amazing supplementary tool while you undergo a therapeutic process with a trained professional.
Here you'll find out more about the journey we have crafted for you and your sensual awakening.
It's recommended to go through the modules with a pace of at most 1 per week, repeating the practice a few times to really let it sink in before moving to the next one. You can, however, go at whatever pace feels most aligned for you!
Module 1: Sensual Awareness: Embodied Somatic Meditation
In Module 1 of the Sensualist Essentials online course, you'll dive headfirst into the transformative practice of embodied somatic meditation.
Here, we'll guide you to reconnect deeply with your body, fostering a commitment to a lifelong relationship with it.
You'll shed the labels of "good" or "bad" in relation to your sensations, and explore sensations as vibrant expressions within your consciousness.
This module will take you on a journey from the external world to your inner world, unveiling the five sensory gateways that open new dimensions of experience, enriching your connection with yourself and life
You can listen to the first module, and do the first meditation for free below!
Module 2: Embodiment through Breath, Sound, and Movement
In Module 2, we'll unlock the incredible power of your breath, the vibratory power of sound, and the bliss of authentic movement. You'll learn to build and channel energy with these tools, exploring the dynamic changes in your being as you explore the way that they affect your embodied experience and expression of the moment.
Authentic expression through sound becomes second nature, and you'll leave behind the need for pretence and performance. Through movement, you'll connect with the wisdom of your spine and hips, allowing it to unfold naturally and harmoniously. And you'll experience how intentional breathing alters your nervous system state and ability to feel more.
Module 3: Becoming deeply self-consentual
Module 3 invites you to cultivate a profound and loving relationship with your body. We discuss how our current lifestyles and ways of being can often be influenced by dominator culture- forcing the body into submission from the mind, and how this has negatively affected our bodies and stripped us of the body's wisdom and our own empowerment.
Understand that your body is not a machine that will do whatever your mind dictates, but a dynamic, intelligent, living being with it's own timings, rhythms and needs. We commit to coming into LISTENING rather than controlling, and allowing our body to reveal to us how it wants to be touched, what it needs and wants.
In this module we explore what it is to be really in consent with your body and how that will affect your relationships, boundaries and interactions when you really learn to listen and respect the bodies needs.
Module 4: Grounded, Regulated and Centered
Module 4 equips you with the skills to navigate the intensity of life through regulation and grounding.
You'll learn about how grounding practices can support us to come back to ourselves, how the earth can be a support of safety and nourishment, and how these practices can support us with healing, recovering from overwhelm and becoming more in touch with the present moment.
By connecting with the Earth, you'll connect with its stability and wisdom, grounding yourself in a way that fosters resilience and balance.
Module 5: Emotional Exploration
Module 5 delves into the profound connection between sensation, emotion, and thought.
You'll understand that emotions are neither good nor bad; they are simply expressions of energy and flavours of reality, and linked to your nervous system and primal responses.
You'll learn to listen to your body's wisdom to discern whether an emotion wishes to be witnessed or moved. In the practice you'll get to explore the somatic, embodied experience of emotion as something to come into relationship with rather than being controlled by it.
Additionally, you'll embrace the possibility of pleasure and enjoyment arising within every emotional experience, experimenting with how we can ride the waves of our emotions with more ease and bliss.
Module 6: Sensual Play - The Art of Bliss
In Module 6, you'll rediscover the joy of being in your body through sensual play and exploration of embodiment.
You'll engage in form of sensual worship with the energy of innocent curiosity and celebration, offering your a space to be in awe at the wonder of being alive.
We bring in dance and play as a way to bring joy into your body and opening you up into new ways of relating with the world around you.
This module empowers you to take the wisdom of these practices into your daily life and your exploration of sexuality, creating a life rich in pleasure and connection.

From Numb to Ecstatic- Awakening the pleasure body
25-10-23 | 19:00 AWST, 13:00 CEST
In this workshop we'll look dive deeper into the effect of trauma and armouring on the system and how it can make us numb and disconnected from life- and how to re-awaken the body to become more alive, sensitive and empowered.
We'll discuss both chronic numbness and momentary numbing that can come up in situations when our body contracts and shuts down.
This workshop will teach you more about trauma and how to navigate it- both in your own body and if you have a partner who struggles with these issues. You'll learn about different tools and techniques to help land you in the realms of feeling- or how to support others with this issue.
A Worship of Life- The Sacred path of Sensuality
15-11-23 | 10:00 AWST, 19:00 PST
You Sensuality is the gateway to your Divinity
There are spiritual paths that deem the body as an illusionary distraction or something dirty to be purified and transcended- then there are the spiritual paths that honour the body as a sacred vessel and our sensuality as something beautiful and powerful to be honoured.
The Tantric path is known for being an embodied tradition, especially the Goddess worshipping 'Shakta' path. They see the senses not as distractions but as the Goddess, the body as the holiest of temples and pleasure as a beautiful gift to be honoured.
In this talk we'll discuss Sacred Sensuality and the path of descent into the body, to awaken to life in the here and now.
