2) To provide an intensive professional development opportunity for Certified Somatic Sex Educators (CSSEs).
3) To provide an alternative pathway to complete the CSB certification requirements.

This experiential training offers CSBs and CSSEs the opportunity to expand their skills. A week of input and feedback on your work, mentoring, and receiving professional supervision in a stunning retreat centre in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, Queensland, Australia. You will also have the opportunity to deepen your understanding of the CSB material.

Online Group Study

Participants in the Certificate in Somatic Sex Education Clinic Week program will review the updated CSB Online Group Study material, study 6 of Ellen Heed’s lectures (nervous system, sphincters and the enteric nervous system, vulva anatomy, penis anatomy, breath and scars) and participate in live Q and A teleconferences with Ellen.

In The Field Clinic Week Intensive

Participants will:
 develop their somatic sex education skills through the process of working with real clients on authentic learning objectives, and having immediate access to input from CSBs and facilitators before and after sessions.
 develop their coaching and mentoring skills in ongoing small group processes, and have the opportunity to reflect on their work to improve practice.
 have essential input, experience, and feedback in facilitating groups.
 engage in regular yoga classes, erotic rituals and meditations, and spend a wonderful week connecting with your peers and building networks and community.
