becoming shameless

“Becoming Shameless” is an experiential workshop for people ready to shed the weight of shame. Led by somatic sexologist and relationship coach Dr. Laura Jurgens, this transformative experience offers a safe, supportive, playful, and irreverent container to learn the foundational tools for releasing shame in the mind and body.

Shame is a universal experience, deeply ingrained by societal norms, cultural pressures, and personal experiences. But here’s the truth: shame serves no constructive purpose. It stifles our growth, traps us in cycles of self-doubt, and prevents us from fully embracing our potential for joy and pleasure in this life. Unlike healthy guilt (which we’ll explore too), shame does not actually inspire behavioral change. If you’re tired of carrying around shame and ready to step into your own power to release it, this workshop is for you.

You may feel hesitant or shy about confronting your various shames, and that’s completely okay. This workshop is designed to meet you where you are and guide you through a process of discovery and liberation at your own pace. The journey to shamelessness is best traveled in community, where we can support one another and experience the liberation of solidarity in shared experiences.

We’ll engage in interactive exercises and discussions teaching you how to unravel the grip of shame on various aspects of our lives, including our bodies, sexuality, our past actions, and our real human vulnerabilities. You’re never obligated to share anything you’re not comfortable with.

You’ll walk away better able to embrace your imperfections, celebrate your uniqueness, claim your desires, and reclaim your inherent worthiness. You’ll have the tools and insights to navigate your way out of shame-spirals in the future, and to support other people in releasing shame too.

Join us and have more fun getting rid of shame than you ever thought possible.
