This course gave me a sacred container while I transitioned out of massage school. Taya Ma’s loving comments were so potent, supportive and right on. I think of the words she offered often.

Sex & the Sephirot: A Pleasure Journey through the Omer - April 9 - May 28, 2020

The seven weeks between the Jewish holidays of Passover and Shavuot - known as the period of counting the Omer - invite us on an intentional journey from constriction to pleasure, union & revelation. The Omer offers a focused opportunity to bring attention to patterns we desire to transform.

In Sex and the Sephirot, we’ll engage the Omer toward experiencing greater erotic presence, deepening our commitment to sex that is nourishing and healthful for us, and embracing ritual practices of self-pleasure - or pleasure with partners - amidst the support and container of sex-positive community and joyful accountability.  We’ll work with the sephirot through an embodied pelvic mapping of the kabbalistic tree of life created specifically for this course.

This offering is for you if: You have a pattern around self-pleasure or sex with partners that you want to transform. You feel excited - and perhaps a little nervous - about being held in a lovingly tended group container to additionally integrate the sacred into your erotic life. You desire to claim pleasure as prayer. 

This seven week journey includes weekly teachings delivered by audio and text, three collective video calls which are a combination of teaching and personal check-in's, optional chevrutah connection with a classmate and a 30 minute individual support session by Zoom with Taya Mâ. Video calls are Sundays April 12, May 3 & May 24 @ 10 am Pacific / 1 pm Eastern.  

While vulva mapping materials are a part of course content, this course is open to and designed for people of all gender expressions & bodies.  Our frame is Jewishly rooted, and this course is open across faith practices - no background in Judaism necessary. The course requires a clearly stated commitment to confidentiality, in support of the depth and vulnerability of our work.

Course registration is $275. Registration is open through April 19, 2019 or until the course fills, whichever comes first.  Register by paypal to (as a friends and family payment to avoid fees) with a note as to which course you are registering for. Feel free to contact with questions.
