Join us live @7pm on CTR Network! RAHI CHUN | SOMATIC SEXUAL WHOLNESS Rahi Chun’s purpose was birthed from the tactile awareness he received to heal his crooked legs as an infant, combined with his practices of meditation in the Zen temples of Japan, and living at the Buddhist monastery Wat Ram Peung in Northern Thailand. His experiences of witnessing the spontaneous release of the body’s chronic guarding patterns from embodied presence and intentional touch followed by its expansion of life force energies encouraged his studies in the Taoist and Tantric traditions of intentionally circulating sexual energy for healing and consciousness. He has since combined his Master’s in Spiritual Psychology, with his certifications in TRE (Trauma Release Exercises), NeuroAffective Touch and Sexological Bodywork in offering Somatic Sexual Wholeness a mind/body/spirit integrated approach to sexual health and well-being. SSW is sequenced intentionally to first address the early attachment relational deficits affecting the nervous system and its chronic guarding patterns, before restoring an empowered voice/choice often missing in our adolescence within the client, after which any genital armouring/trauma/conditioned patterns are resolved for an expansion in sexual freedom, pleasure, and wholeness.
