Let me introduce myself
This workshop offers a deep dive into a topic I believe has been overly simplified in media and mainstream culture. I so appreciate having the knowledge and skill to approach consent in a novel dynamic and influential way. Many thanks to Corinne and Katie and Betty for their genius and effort.
I’ve been excited about practicing and understanding the wheel of consent ever since I witnessed it’s teaching from Betty Martin’s videos. This workshop gave me a firm grasp of the somatic subject matter that I’m sure will be more than helpful to my partner’s and my 45 plus year relationship!
Expansive and accessible, rich in nuance and subtlety, vital building blocks for the rising paradigm of consent culture.
I wish this class was a requirement - or at least more readily explored and discussed. The depth of the discussion, the “a-ha’s”, the thought-provoking treasure trove of it all, make it a topic I will return to again and again.
I thought I knew a lot about consent, but this workshop opened me about a completely new understanding and skill set. I am actively bringing these new skills to all facets of my life, partnering, parenting, friendships, family work. Katie and Corinne are both grounded, attuned facilitators, and I appreciated their skills as facilitators. There was a real grace between them.
My experience with you was incredible. I experienced some nervousness and some shyness, but your warm, open-hearted authenticity made me feel at peace. I love the space that you set, and the games we played to establish comfort and boundaries. You created a space where I could feel safe, vulnerable, open and alive. You are sharing a very powerful magic with those who you work with and you have such incredible love and healing to offer and I am eternally grateful for the difference that I see in my life from that single session. I look forward to learning from you more in the future and deepening my practice and connection to the incredible power that comes from inside.
It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation and a personal reference for Ms. Corinne I have known Corinne for two years. In those years I am impressed with Corinne’s generosity of heart, her vitality, her sincerity, and her skills as Yoga Instructor. I consider Corinne one of the most skillful and wise Yoga teachers I have known in my life. During my lifetime (I am sixty two years old), I have attended many yoga classes in many locations, and regard Corinne very highly for great presence and for providing a field of ease and groundedness for her students. If Corinne were teaching in my community I would recommend every one of her classes without hesitation and guide my clients to her private work. In addition to her teaching abilities, in private life, I count Corinne as a friend whose honest feedback I can rely on. I know her to be a deep student of spirituality, someone who cares greatly about human relationships and has a tenderness for nature and life itself. She is totally devoted to her family and has a high regard for her students. Please do not hesitate to call me for more information.
When I came to Corinne for private sessions, I was looking for an explanation for my low libido and lack of sexual interest. What I found, however, was so much richer. With tact, perseverance and gentle guidance, Corinne helped me to discover that the real issues lay with my intimate connection with myself, and not my partner. Through a variety of exercises, including touch, we began the journey that is still unfolding. The depth and passion I uncovered fuelled not only my love life, but my love for life. We are still working together and I hope to explore and uncover so much more. Thank you Corinne!
We already had a strong relationship, but our sessions with Corinne have offered us a new connection to each other based on a vastly deeper trust and open communication. Expressing our deepest erotic desires for each other and ourselves has forever impacted our entire relationship and lives. We are nothing short of a transformed couple, who are even more deeply in love, joyful, and passionate for each other. Thank you Corinne, for making us feel completely safe and welcome, and for unlocking what was already in us through your expert, kind, and intuitive guidance. You are eternally in our hearts.
I have had the pleasure of working with Corinne for a few years. During that time she helped me to connect to my erotic self, which ultimately has led to a re-connection to my bigger Self and my passion, creativity, and joy. She is one of the most professional women I have come across over several decades of self exploration and discovery. Corinne is passionate about her work and extremely gifted. She was able to fully meet me from my place of inexperience and lead me to many fulfilling discoveries about myself, which have ultimately helped to transform my life in many positive ways.
Corinne is a lovely teacher and facilitator. Her deep understanding of Human Sexuality and gentle guidance leaves room for folks to have a powerful experience; integrating new truths, new information, and new insights on a cellular level. I enjoyed Corinne's enthusiasm and light sense of humour the most! Her playful yet professional energy makes it easy for people to look into themselves and engage with such taboo or socially unfamiliar topics. I love her approach!"
Corinne's courage creates a safe space for students to open up and lean into constricting feelings. Her experienced guidance leads students toward expanding beyond limiting thoughts and feelings. As a workshop facilitator, Corinne playfully encourages her students to land in a more empowered place of erotic autonomy and assists deep inspiration and growth within sacred sexuality.
In presenting the topic of erotic autonomy and sacred sexuality, Corinne dances through this content with power and grace. You can see in her every breath and movement she is designed to deliver this potent and valuable information I feel the people on this planet truly need and desire. Thank you, Corinne for standing up ... Doing the work ... And sharing it with me and the world!
I attended the Erotic Autonomy workshop in Tofino. You can see that Corinne is passionate about the material she has to share. She teaches from lived experience in her body. My attention was brought to areas around asking/receiving that are tricky for me and I found the movement exercise in the group a reminder of how alive my body can be. I felt inspired, enlivened and connected to the group model.
I was fortunate enough to take a workshop facilitated by Corinne she was very organized very well spoken and very clear, it was very easy to understand what she was teaching. She brings all sorts of energy with her and kept me very interested in the topics. This lady could teach anyone anything I'm sure of it. I wouldn't hesitate to sign up for any workshop she facilitates.
