Awesome Mentoring Work and Upcoming Apprenticeship

So, in life developments of our intrepid aspiring sex educator (i.e. me), I've been mentoring with NYC-based sex educator Amy Jo Goddard. I first encountered her when she gave a talk on the "happy and healthy" vulva to the women's group at my college, and recently got to start working with her after she put out a call for mentees in a teleclass on how to be a sex educator.

The best part about this is that I get to participate in the major class she's scheduled for March, which is the culmination of her 15 years as a sex educator. The extended workshop is called the Women's Sexuality Empowerment Apprenticeship, and it'll be a two-month weekly class where I get to sit in a room with other women and learn deeply about our bodies and our sexualities. It's been a while since I've been in women-only spaces, and I'm very much looking forward to it. (I'll put more info on the class below for any NYC-area folks who might be interested or know someone who would be.)

It's really exciting to get to learn from a woman who so clearly does what I want to be doing. She's got her Master's in Human Sexuality, she's been teaching about sexuality to people of all ages for fifteen years, she's worked in colleges and medical schools. She writes, she's directed a movie, she's done performance art. I couldn't really ask for a better mentor.

If only I could find a steady source of livable income, my life would be pretty damn awesome right now. I'll work on that, but until then, I'm going to live it up on savings and do my best to appreciate what I've got.
Women's Sexuality Empowerment Apprenticeship
Are you ready to own your sexuality, to reclaim it, heal it and celebrate it?

Women need a safe space in which to heal, explore, examine and learn about their sexuality. In this sex-positive space, women will be able to do the deep work on their sexual selves that can empower and affect every aspect of their being.

This apprenticeship will be a combination of deep work on the sexual self through discussion, coaching and self-exploration; examination of our sexual history and patterns; and education about sexuality and the sexual body. It will involve homework in between classes, allow participants to develop sexual/relational skills through guided exercises, push boundaries, and ask that people bring their whole selves to the process. It is a rare opportunity to dive deeply into the study and development of our own sexual selves. Women of all sexual orientations and backgrounds are welcome.

If you are interested and want to find out more, please contact Amy Jo about your free 30-minute consultation to see if it's right for you. Space is limited for this apprenticeship so act quickly. I also suggest you attend one of the free informational sessions (March 11th at noon and March 18th at 8pm) to get more detailed information about the program.

The class will be held on Tuesday nights between March 23 and May 25th from 6:30pm-10pm and all day (9:30am-6pm) on Saturdays April 3rd, April 17th, and May 1st.
