Where are the positive messages about sexuality and spirituality in American culture? Where do we go to learn about the beauty, sacredness, power, intensity, desire, creativity, and pleasure in sexuality? Where do we help parents find information about how to guide their kids as they grow? Or how to grow their own erotic relationship? American culture has marinated in a long history of sex-negativity that has resulted in an economy driven by selling bodies and people, no real sex education for children and families, shame and fear from conservative churches, families with long histories of sexual silence and shame, and most people receiving their sex education from friends, media and pornography. In this talk, Dr Sellers explores the ancient Judeo/Christian sex positive sacred story of sexuality that was not told and invites her audience into a fun radical notion that our sexuality was created by a loving God on purpose, to heal us, bond us, for us to enjoy and to know how beloved we really are.
