Manage episode 345349631 series 3355148
Are you comfortable talking about sex? Is sex an area of life that works well for you or do you struggle with pain, past trauma, and insecurity in relationships? You are not alone! Due to a lack of meaningful education about sex and our bodies, most of us have some sexual hang-ups or feelings of dysfunction. In today's episode, Mona shares her experiences working with Irene Morning, a trained yoga therapist and somatic (def: body-based) pleasure coach to work on becoming more comfortable with talking about sex and becoming more embodied. We then interview Irene about her practice and belief in working with people on experiencing more pleasure in their lives, whether that is within their sex lives or just within life in general. This conversation with Irene was one of my favorites! Definitely check this one out!
