04 Feb Embrace Podcast Launch
In 2019 BRISSC ran a 7-week support group on sex and intimacy for survivors, blending feminist and somatic theory and practices.
Themes covered included:
- Somatic safety & embodiment
- Working with trauma (the ‘resilient edge of resistance’)
- Consent & sexual communication
- Arousal anatomy and orgasm
At the end of the group, participants felt passionate about sharing their process, learnings and reflections with a wider audience – and the idea of a podcast was born. The intention is survivors talking to survivors about their experiences – although the content will also be invaluable for sexual violence workers.
Embrace is a 6-part podcast series drawing on the lived expertise of survivors of sexual violence. Each topic split into two parts – a discussion between survivors about topics relevant to sex and intimacy after trauma, and a somatic ‘practice’ – which support listeners to embody the concepts from the discussion.
