Self-connection is a powerful catalyst of change in sex addiction recovery.

Sexual Energy: Our Life Force

by Dr. Miles Reid

Friday, March 15, 2019

8:00am – 9:15am


FREE CE LECTURE!
1 CE available for LMFTs, LCSWs, LPCCs, LEPs, and psychologists

Dr. Miles Reid will present the energetic view of sex, integrating science, Eastern thought and shamanistic perspectives, in a 75′ informal discussion that is intended to educate and stir creative thinking on how we perceive ourselves as sexual beings in the world today. We will focus on how can we add to our inner experience a secondary function of sexual energy as an evolutionary force. How can men and women use sexual energy to make the jump in consciousness that is needed today, a re-interpretation of the roles of women and men in society that can prepare us, as co-leaders, to enter deep into the 21st century.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the addition of the energetic viewpoint of sex to your experience of self
  • Describe the relationship between sex and vital energy
  • Recall the secondary functions of sexual organs from a shamanistic point of view and develop your awareness
