27:36In this episode, Luna explores how rupture (arguments, disagreements and other uncomfortable relating situations) can move into repair, and even from that point into deeper intimacy and connection! Many of us avoid conflict and turn away from discomfort- but when you realise it is a gateway to deeper intimacy and connection, and gain skills to navigate these choppy waters, we can transform the energy and come into deeper connection with ourselves and each other. Luna speaks about some situations that have created rupture in her relationship and events, and how that was able to create deeper intimacy and connection when it was alchemised.

We spoke about her journey liberating body shame and sexual repression through open relating and conscious sexuality, and how her 'Fawn' response showed up in her explorations. Some of the things we spoke to are The lack of sex-education and conversations around relating in many cultures and how this negatively impacts us What is the 'Fawn' response, and how it's not just for the person who fawns to 'deal with' but a communal and inter-relational change needed to support breaking through fawning How fawning shows up differently in men and women Working through body shame Sensual Embodiment Kali- Sensual Arts Facilitator Kali is a wild child who believes in the power of vulnerability and embodiment of emotions. After leaving her optometry career, the path of self-discovery began with training in multiple Yoga styles, Energy work, Somatics and Women’s Circle Facilitation.

Passionate about curating transformative journeys, she attunes to Goddesses' energy to use sensuality as a gateway to spirituality. Instagram | Linktree
