How Sacred Sexuality Heals Shame and Trauma

How Sacred Sexuality Heals Shame and Trauma


We can heal shame and trauma through the intimate connections we make with ourselves and our partners — and bring back both passion and love into our lives.

In this talk, filmed at Mindvalley A-Fest Greece, sexuality and intimacy expert Psalm Isadora explains why the world is starving for sexual healing, how we store memories and trauma in our bodies — and why we need to honor our sexuality today.

Sexual Healing

If we want to make the world a better place, then we need to talk about sex.

Our sexuality is the one area of our lives we leave in the shadows. Unlike our careers, hobbies and routines, we don’t explore exactly what we want, what we need, or how we can improve — even though sex is at the very center of our lives.

And there’s a simple reason why: shame.

Most of us carry some form of sexual guilt or trauma, believing sex is bad, dirty, sinful. But sexuality can be the most sacred part of the human experience. We can heal, love, and transcend through the intimate connections we make with ourselves and our partners.

Legendary intimacy and trauma expert, Psalm Isadora, shares how she was able to overcome the sexual trauma and shame she experienced growing up in a religious cult to become a Tantra sex coach who has empowered tens of thousands of people to love themselves and experience deeper connections.
