There are no certified Bodysex Leaders in my country and the cost to travel far for a workshop is too much. What can I do?
You can start by taking The Bodysex Experience online course. After you have completed the course, email Laura and Carlin and explain your difficulty in getting to a workshop. In rare situations, a virtual workshop may be allowed instead of in-person as your prerequisite. However, please know that it is still required to attend the certification workshop in person, no exceptions.

Do you offer scholarships for The Bodysex Leadership Program?
Not at this time. However, some Leaders have successfully crowdsourced funding for their certification fees and workshop equipment.

I’m already a professional sex therapist/sex educator/somatic practioner, etc. Can I skip parts of the process to become certified as a Bodysex Leader and hold workshops?
No. We want you to have all of the information so that you will be successful. Going through the entire program will strengthen the knowledge and skills that you already have plus build your confidence as a Bodysex practioner.
