As our hearts and bodies awaken through movement meditation practice, our sexual energy also begins to stir. On the dance floor, we may feel juicy, radiant, and desirable one moment and feel guilty, awkward, and shy in the next. We may feel overwhelmed by our own experience - or by the sexual energies around us – or feel flat, disconnected, or just plain left out.

Our generative, sexual energy - our Libido - is an essential part of our body’s natural expression, complicated one moment, ecstatic the next; absent or burdened with expectations of past experiences, this energy within and between us comes to the dance longing for freedom.

Libido Fundamentals begins this complex and creative investigation by introducing the basics of using movement meditation as a means to ground, and explore the physical energies of our sexual energy. Because sexuality is so often underground, ignored, or unconsciously acted out, the exploration of this territory tends to be intense, liberating, intimate and powerful. The potential pleasure and beauty of this journey is well worth the challenges and the risks.

Libido Fundamentals is a prerequisite for the Open Floor Teacher Training and for the Libido On-Going group lead by Andrea Juhan.
