What is embodiment, and how does it fill your sex life with pleasure, relaxation and connection? It combines mindfulness with sensation; mindfulness is the art of paying attention to the present, to your senses, with curiosity and in a neutral, nonjudgmental way--neutralizing self-consciousness, emotions and other distractions. When you are embodied, you notice what happens inside you, and treat yourself kindly. You mindfully focus on your four senses, actively receiving input from yourself or your lover. This in contrast to forgetting you even have a body, as you are so caught up in thoughts, judgment, performance anxiety or furtively chasing orgasms.
Sensation changes over your lifetime and lifestyle, and neglect or trauma may have caused your body or vulva to feel numb. Fortunately, you can revive sensation and pleasure through mindful touch. By making it a practice, you activate neuroplasticity, effectively rewiring your body and brain with new pathways to pleasure (Jesse). Adding in breath, movement, touch, sound and imagination also increase sensation. So step out of your head, and transform your numb, shut-down body, and your distracted, anxious mind into your turned-on, sensual, embodied self, with increased sensation, mindfulness, pleasure and orgasms! Your coach can get you there!
