Bruno has been trained to hold clients through intense emotions, to help them understand personal desires, and to help them navigate challenging past experiences. Bruno works powerfully with individuals and groups, teaching practices to deepen connection and pleasure. He has a particular interest in integrating the shadow side: taming negative aspects of ourselves that sabotage us in living our desires.
Empowering people to safely navigate the vulnerable field of sexuality is core to Bruno’s work. Working with Bruno helps people find a stronger sense of what is true for them, and how to lose the fear of asking for what they want. At the same time, he helps everyone find the confidence to say ‘no’ to what is not right for them.
He has presented workshops on Sexuality at Celebrating Sexuality and other festivals, and been a presenter at KundiTantra in Sydney
WORKSHOPS AT CELEBRATING SEXUALITY
Your Body Knows- Embodying Open-Hearted “No” And Pleasure Within Your Boundaries
Our sexuality activates strong emotions and desires - and in the heat we can lose contact with our needs. We open and make ourselves vulnerable - and if we are not mindful we can get hurt.
You learn how to stay embodied while opening to other people. You practice techniques to keep you connected to the body’s signals for what is (and isn’t) positive, nourishing and arousing for you. We guide you to practice saying an open-hearted “no”: setting your boundaries while staying open to connection and your body’s wisdom.
We introduce the “Circle of Consent”, a framework that helps you understand what is happening in a sensual encounter: Who is ‘doing’, who is ‘receiving’, and for whose benefit are we engaging? You will use partner touch exercises to practice.
Logistics: Clothes-on. Involves movement, sensual touch and feedback in exercises with varying partners. Set your personal boundaries for touch. Can’t join late. Inclusive of all genders and orientations.
My Body, My Pleasure, My ‘No’ (discussion group)
Join us to reflect on how you feel in your body, how you have experienced pleasure in the way you wanted, and how well you were able to say ‘no’. We want to support you with the challenges you’ve had and also celebrate what went well!
We reference the content from our workshops and balance some light instruction with listening to each other in group share and discussion.
We facilitate a range of topics:
My body: How am I feeling in my body? How has my body reacted to workshops or past experiences?
My pleasure: How did I experience pleasure with others? Did I experience what I wanted?
My ‘no’: Have I experienced saying ‘no’? Did I stand up for what I wanted? How did it leave me feel?
We conclude with a discussion of what we want to change going forward: what do I want differently in the future and how can I make that happen?
Feel You Boundaries And Know Your Shadow
You will experience your emotional and energetic boundaries. You practice setting your boundaries and consciously letting people into your personal space. I show you key types of behaviours that can manipulate you to let people in too close. You learn techniques of establishing a sense of emotional and energetic safety.
We then explore the unconscious elements that you bring to your sexual fantasies. In a guided meditation you will safely encounter your ‘shadow’, the emotional undercurrents that run along your conscious desires. We will apply and practice your safety techniques to make sure that acting out your desires is positive and nourishing for you.
Logistics: Clothes-on, no touch. Exercises and sharing/feedback with varying partners. Can’t join late. Inclusive of all genders and orientations.
