Join Perle on a journey of healing and learning to love yourself through her emotional and empowering course. During the Healing through Seduction course, she will provide a safe space for students to truly embrace themselves, flaws and all.
This life-changing experience will enable you to connect with your power, resilience, spirit and feminine energy. You cannot expect to find a healthy and loving personal connection with your reflection, business partnership or intimate relationship until you establish and celebrate your standards unapologetically. How do you treat your temple? How do you speak to your body, your gifts, and your mind? Are you kind to yourself? Healing through Seduction will help you discover the most important type of love: self-love. Are you ready to fall in love with your spirit and celebrate your powerful light? Healing through Seduction is the course for you!
The workshop is a combination of coaching, personalized affirmations, positive mirror work, connection exercises, journaling, healing rituals, and burlesque-inspired movement classes to help you reclaim your power, celebrate your feminine energy, and evoke the seductress within.
***NO DANCE EXPERIENCE NECESSARY***
The Healing Through Seduction workshop is a provocative guide to seducing your reflection without regrets or guilt while healing and moving past self-doubt or trauma. The workshop will include affirmations and step-by-step guides to healing rituals. Techniques include: mirror on the wall, connect with your audience, stomp your ghosts with each strut, seduce your reflection, and I'm a beautiful imperfection. It's time to change your relationship with your spirit and connect with your body, and resilience!
Bring a journal and an open mind. You will also have the option to join the Healing through Seduction private Facebook Group page for Q&A and support.
