This unique play shop limited to ten women will combine the transformational and healing art of photography, telling our body stories, self adornment and being witnessed in our own unique beauty. Join Pamela Madsen, Internationally known sex educator specializing in the needs of women, author of "Shameless" and Co-Visionary of " Back To The Body: Sensual Retreats For Women and Lori Berkowitz acclaimed Boudoir Photographer for a day that will leave you feeling transformed, turned on, and down right sexy.

Date: Sunday, December 7th

The Experience:

In a circle of ten beautiful women we will create a circle of safety and possibility.

Pamela will lead the group in a full body grounding meditation where we will explore the power of our own sensual energy (clothing on).

All of us will share our body stories. Our "Body Stories" are literally the story of our own body and our relationship to our bodies.

We will explore the role of body image and sexuality and how the use of lingerie/intentional clothing can change how we feel in our bodies. Each woman will have the opportunity to play in her own lingerie and try on new pieces. Can you say let's play "Dress Up"?

We will discuss Boudoir Photography and it's roll in supporting women to feel seduced in their own bodies. Each woman will receive a 20 minutes session with Lori and receive five images from the shoot that she will be able to view in her own private gallery. Each woman will be receive coaching from Pamela during their shoot.

Lori’s photography combines decades of professional experience with her innate sensitivity, to give her clients permission to let go and inhabit their most sensual selves during the sessions. She wants to know “what makes you feel beautiful?” and then holds up her lens as a mirror for women to see the stunning beauty in their own reflection. By creating a safe space for women to lavish in their inner glow, she’s giving women an empowering gift.

“Each woman’s sexuality is like their thumbprint, and what excites me most is capturing that unique essence, and having it spark a fire of self love inside my subject”. Lori Berkowitz

Lori’s boudoir shoots are “opportunities to press the pause button on life”, and engage real women in feeling the strength of their own beauty. “Day to day our sexuality is diluted in our different roles as women,” Lori says “These images become a tangible reminder to see yourself as a whole, and to let go of the prevailing media vision of what a woman is supposed to be.”

Imagine combining the magic of working with both Lori and Pamela? What better gift to give yourself or someone you love?

A hair and make up artist will be on premises to support each woman to feel her best.

Lunch and a wine and cheese lingerie reception will close the day with the women having the opportunity to share their pictures with each other.

Investment: $500.00
