Desire and Sexuality:
Come to our course on intercourse, and other such things. Anna and Paul Peterson will be co-hosting this workshop designed to help you finally make time for the one thing that might continually get put on the back burner—your sexuality, wherever that is right now.
You can talk about it.
You can love it.

About the Event
Anna Peterson has studied applied theatre, education, and performance at Brigham Young University, and has since pursued further studies and certifications in body-mind-spirit work.
She is a yoga/intuitive movement teacher, guided imagery facilitator, healing drum circle facilitator, and Ayurvedic/Conscious-Living educator.
Paul Peterson, LAMFT, is a Marriage and Family Therapist who recently moved to Northwest Arkansas to start a private practice. He has worked in a variety of settings, including a residential treatment facility for deviant sexual behavior treatment.
He regularly sees clients dealing with a range of sexual issues, including desire, vulnerability, identity, and abuse. His other interests include mind-body connection, meditation & hypnosis, and faith narratives.
We are excited to offer you a time and place to invest in your own sexuality—time that everyday life won't provide for. Together, we'll write, discuss, move (yoga & intuitive), eat, and discover where you're at and where you'd like to be.
We don't have a certain agenda about what or how you should engage with your own sexuality.Any level of participation or non-participation is welcome. However, we will be holding discussions and giving you tools that can help you answer common questions we hear over and over again:
-I haven't had an orgasm—is that normal or I am broken?
-My partner seems to want sex way more than I do. What do I do in that situation?
-I definitely want sex way more than my partner. What do I do in that situation?
-I learned in Church what not to do (like, over and over)... But, what am I actually supposed to do regarding sex? Or do I just try and figure it out somehow?
-I feel like my cycle makes me a very different person each week and month. Is that normal?
-Sex was fine until we had kids. Now? I'm just tapped out. Is that okay? Can I change that?
-My partner and I don't really talk about sex, so I don't really know what he likes and he certainly doesn't know what I like. In fact, I don't even know what I like. How can I find that out?
-How do I say No to sex with my partner in a way that won't hurt him or her?
-My sexuality has changed so much in the last few years. How do I approach family, partner, and church now?
This workshop is open to any women interested in exploring these topics. We are both informed by our Church culture and doctrine and will use it as an example of how cultural and religious messaging can help and hurt our sexual development. We welcome your unique contexts as well and will be happy to apply these principles to any and all that attend.
With a woman and man hosting this workshop, we hope to provide insights from both ends, and there will be portions of the workshop where Paul is not present to invite greater sisterhood.
