    Dating in the Modern Jungle

Is there really a price tag on true love, or are we just victims of a heartless algorithm?

From the treacherous terrain of Tinder to the perilous pitfalls of Plenty of Fish, we'll reveal our own misadventures in the jungle of digital romance. We even recount some hilarious mishaps, cringe-worthy encounters, and downright bizarre messages and experiences we've encountered in the wild. But we discuss deeper issues at play, exploring the capitalistic models of dating that often leave us feeling more like commodities than human beings. Is love truly blind, or are we all just victims of the almighty dollar sign?

    Embracing your Wild Unleashed Erotic Lover & Mother with Natalie Abraham


    Exploring sexuality as a woman, let alone as a mother, is a complex initiation into facing your inner wounds and sexual shame often passed down through our mother lines. So my convo with Somatic Trauma Therapist Natalie Abraham was a deeply refreshing exploration where she touched on: Illuminating the divine paradox that is to balance the paradox of being both an erotic sensual woman & mother and dissolving the ever selfless ‘martyred mother’ archetype to come into divine integration (or the healing of the Virgin/Whore divide and reclamation of the whole spectrum woman) Her powerful story of modeling healthy curious sexual exploration for her pre-teen and how to broach the uncomfortable topics of sexual education with our children Unpacking sexual shame that gets passed down from mother to daughter & how to create space for dialogue, curiosity and exploration in healthy ways The importance of heart + soul in building trust for genuine intimacy and overcoming the disconnection between love + sex we see in the dating world exacerbated through Online Dating/Tinder/Porn culture Her distinction of Sexuality vs. Sensuality and the four stages of intimacy, sensuality, sexual energy, and sex and how to use these distinctions to explore different forms of touch + closeness Natalie is a certified Somatic Trauma Therapist, an intimacy coach and heart initiator, an artist and healer, a poet. She guide’s transformative journeys through multiple sensual and sexual arts including Dancing into Tantra, Rope Healing/Shibari, Erotic Explorations, Female Embodiment, Men’s Circles and much more.
