Event description

ALIVE Nurturing our Sexual Intelligence

Open Floor Embodied Sexuality dance inquiry into the creative nature that breathes and moves us

How does it feel to inhabit the body with all its senses? What happens when we orient to what brings us most alive?

Open Floor is a resource-based movement practice that aims to bring us into authenticity, self-knowledge and wholeness

The Open Floor Embodied Sexuality program seeks to supplement emotional and somatic intelligence with erotic intelligence – exploring our sexuality as a way of knowing ourselves

We also recognise that this is a dimension of our being that, beautiful and natural as it is, has been burdened with concepts and layered with shame, and that it is work we must enter into with deep sensitivity and care 

We aim to create a space of radical inclusivity, for all bodies, genders and sexualities.  

It recognises that stepping into erotic wholeness gives us access to the juice of life. It unlocks our creativity and drive, and expands our capacity to savour the richness of the world. It also recognises that this is a dimension of our being that, beautiful and natural as it is, has been burdened with concepts and layered with shame, and that it is work we must enter into with deep sensitivity and care

We commit to creating an inclusive, curious, sex positive environment that honours the experiences each person brings into the room. 

This is an invitation to re-member and nourish our erotic intelligence – exploring our unique sexuality as a way of knowing and being more of ourselves.

About Geash Bowler
Through every stage of my life, the wilderness inside my skin has lured
me in. I remember beginning to dance as early as I could walk over to
play my parents’ vinyl. We had a downstairs rumpus room and that was my
early dance floor sanctuary. My body, the beats and that delicious
freedom I experience when I become curious. Life offered way more sense
when I discovered 5Rhythms in 1999 and then trained with Gabrielle Roth
in 2007.

I am an artist and embodied explorer. Born and bred in Aotearoa NZ, I currently live in
Byronshire, Australia. I share my work 1:1, in drug and alcohol
rehabilitation and in a thriving, courageous dance community.

Curious about all things BODY, I am a qualified Somatic Experiencing® and Neuro
Affective Touch® Practitioner, a Sexological Bodyworker® and Somatic
Sex Educator® and Path of Love Music Facilitator.

I work from the bottom up and treasure the honour of exploring with folk
nervous system regulation and education, erotic education and the wild
possibilities for freedom through embodiment. Together we can find, feel
and follow the natural intelligence of the body… how it regulates and
orients to coherence. Our bodies want to resolve traumas and heal.

As a life-long student I feel blessed to work closely with incredible and
generous teachers, all enriching my inquiries into the innate
intelligence of the body.

What fascinates me is the living fresh moment, being here, the felt sense of
my instinctive animal body. Navigating pathways to open and grow into
more connection, comfort, the body being a beautiful place to be.

I also hold close to my heart a passion for restorative justice,
sustainable community and awakening alongside each other in a practice
of kindness.
