Bawdy Storytelling

Kristin Pedemonti was filled with dread at the arrival of the big 5-0. Were her forties, a decade of newly realized desire and sexual adventure, really coming to an end? A last-minute invite allows her to celebrate her big number birthday at a Tantra festival. She arrives feeling unworthy and intimidated at the prospect of 2 days of intimacy and sexuality workshops, but by weekend’s end, she’s been introduced to partnered touch, sound healing, yoga and more, and leaves on Sunday feeling self-acceptance, empathy, confidence, and being adored, loved and devoured in all the right ways.

Here’s hoping that 2019 delivers limitless pleasures to you as well, my friends!


UPDATE: Kristin Pedemonti says “2019 will be a full-on nomadic adventure! I’m headed out across the country to teach and travel. And as a female survivor, I’ve created ‘Steer your Story: take control and navigate with more empowerment and ease’ – I’m bringing it to cities across the US (yours?) and to South Korea. It’s a program to examine and reframe your life narrative, to see opportunities rather than obstacles. These workshops are for female survivors of trauma (with programs for Survivors or Entrepreneurs).

Kristin will also be offering the Presentation Skills and Coaching she’s taught for corporate clients like the World Bank (TEDTalks, anyone?)
