Certificate in Sexological Bodywork

The World’s Leading Facilitator Training for Somatic Sex Educators

The Certificate in Sexological Bodywork is a professional training for somatic sex educators that also offers a profound learning experience for people interested in their own erotic development.

The training provides direct experiential learning opportunities in how to use a client-centered approach to empower, educate and support people to become more knowledgeable, attuned to and aware of their bodies, sex and sexuality, or work through sexual issues or concerns.

The training is taught somatically, and emphasizes session structure, embodied skills, professional practice, ethics and boundaries, and group facilitation. People come out of the training with a clear structure for conducting sessions for individuals, couples, and groups, as well as fundamental skills in somatic sexology and a broad understanding of the knowledge underpinning effective practice.
Participants learn a variety of Sexological Bodywork modalities, including active receiving, anal touch, internal and external genital mapping, breathwork, scar tissue remediation, and Orgasmic Yoga coaching. Furthermore, participants experience how humans learn sex—through mindful, self-directed practice over time.
This Sexological Bodywork training makes use of online learning, video conferences, home erotic practice sessions, video demonstrations, supervised practicum, and communal practices.

The single most empowering and integrative experience I’ve ever had both for my professional and personal practice.

I felt the whole intensive is incredibly well organized and run, from the technical details to the overall plan. I loved the flow of each learning from day to day, building up. It felt clear, extremely well held, with a definite direction.

Best teaching I have ever received.

Completely life changing. I feel I am learning new ways to be in this world.

The CSB course is genius – it works at so many levels at once … is challenging and demanding … and life-changing, and can really prepare you for being a somatic sex education pioneer in this exciting and ground-breaking field.

An excellent professional training, well-taught, brilliantly modelled, the perfect way to move from interest to working as a practitioner.

The best investment I've made in myself and in my career so far.

The engage, study, activate, reflect model is genius and it's allowed me to learn and retain so much more information than any other teaching model. Deej and Uma are brilliant co-facilitators.
