Reconnect to your true sense of joy and pleasure in life through embodiment practices, which will put you in touch with the natural wisdom of your body and enhance your ability to connect with others.
In this time of increased fatigue, loneliness, and anxiety, disconnection from our bodies and from each other is at the core of our personal pain and our collective suffering. Women in particular are rewarded for and expected to participate in self-denial. The Pleasure Is All Yours is a step-by-step guide to help readers release these barriers to finding joy and connection in life. In this timely guide, holistic clinical psychologist, sex therapist, and yoga teacher Dr. Rachel Allyn introduces a embodiment method she developed and has taught to thousands of clients to help them awaken their body's own capacity for healing and connection. Allyn describes four kinds of pleasure--sensual, playful, lively, and sexual--which overlap in many ways. She helps readers identify what things brings pleasure in each and combines breathing exercises, mindfulness, yoga, auditory release, and dynamic movements to help people reconnect to their bodies and become reunited with their inherent wisdom.
