It gives me great pleasure to share the Intimate Conversation that I had with Jennie Verleg!
Jennie runs Hand-on Mindfulness workshops and describes her work as “art meets neuroscience.”
We discovered we have a mutual interest in the role of sexuality in wellbeing. And we were both super excited to have a chat about how sensuality, self-pleasuring and sexual experiences can help us look after our emotional and physical health and wellbeing.
[note: Jennie’s microphone was a bit quiet at the start of the video but you can hear her loud and clear once we get to 3 minutes]
Watch the video to hear more about:
Jennie’s journey from being paralysed in bed with Guillain-Barré syndrome to using art and mindfulness as a way to regain her wellbeing.
Why we’re both passionate about exploring sensuality and sexuality as a path to wellbeing.
Why we should normalise self-pleasure and make it an equally valid choice as attending an art class or taking a moment to meditate on the loo!
The science of pleasure and wellbeing – why it’s good for us and why it matters.
Why we are both on a mission to create more opportunities to explore sensuality and sexuality as a missing link in the wellbeing field.
One of my long-held ambitions has been to create a space where we can have open, heartfelt, and honest conversations about desire, intimacy, and how we each experience and express our unique sexual selves.
I wanted to make space for curiosity-piquing questions and deliciously deep-diving answers.
And I wanted to talk with people who could help me to broaden my perspectives and deepen my understanding.
I am thrilled to share the first in this series of videos on intimacy and desire with you!
