Hello beautiful souls! Welcome back! Today, Jess DeVries brings us a FASCINATING life story! She grew up Evangelical Christian during the crux of the purity movement and is now a somatic sex & intimacy coach. Yes, so many questions, I know.
We retrace the steps through her childhood and "loss of virginity", to finding a purpose via arts degrees and people services jobs.
Topics: shame, guilt, healing, sexuality & "sacred whores", dating people who end up affecting the trajectory, expectations vs reality, what is somatica, listening to your body, christianity, consent & self-doubt, naming and treating "purity culture" as trauma, white supremacy, learning and allyship, for starters!
This peaceful and calm episode lets you take a breather and follow along a path that may have looked chaotic but makes a lot more sense when you take the time to breathe and reflect. I think we all need a bit of Jess vibes this beautiful Friday.https://anchor.fm/runningwildwithchristine/support
