47 :: Releasing Sexual Trauma with Gina Marie

Episode Description

Join me as I have a rare in-person conversation with spiritual relationship, sex coach, and “heart surgeon of energy” Gina Marie.
We’re going in on how stored sexual stress or trauma can hold us back from fully experiencing life, sex and relationships. We also explore how to integrate this stress or trauma so that we can use the pain to empower ourselves and stand on our own two feet.
Listen in for tools and tips to unravel stress through our own breath, cutting through the complicated stickiness of any area of life, and the impact of the recent #MeToo movement on episode 47, Releasing Sexual Trauma with Gina Marie.

Gina Marie – BIO

Inspired to travel the world after college graduation, Gina Marie found a deep calling to explore the esoteric and spiritual world. While learning from masters and shamans in places like South America and India, she realized that the key to her own awakening was within herself, and that her true calling was to serve people and to support them in their process of freedom and awakening.
Now working mainly with sexual stress and sexual trauma, Gina Marie brings people together and creates a space in which they can be present with each other through breath, sound, and movement.
Gina loves leading modern day rituals inspired by her travels, and has exciting plans in the works to let her voice be heard even more this year.

Feeling Funky?  Have the Monday blues?  Having a moment of feeling ‘unsure’ about where you’re going with your business? You’re not alone. If you’re feeling like you’re in a motivational or inspirational rut – it happens.

When you’re feeling funky, how do you allow yourself to be vulnerable and accept who you are, where you are, and what you are waking up to bring forth into the world each day? What are your tricks to get movin’ and groovin’ when you just … Continue reading
