Mindful Intimacy:
Accessing the Power of Vulnerability

Giselle L. Jones, LCSW, CMF, CSAT

Giselle L Jones will present a practical brief exploration of the vast yet intricate world of intimacy through the lens of mindfulness. We all have training throughout the lifespan that can promote and inhibit our ability to access the power of vulnerability. This can affect how we engage at work, with family, in friendships, and is woven through our romantic and sexual connections. Engaging with somatic inquiry, curiosity and imagination, Giselle invites a safe study of ways we can support our clients in connecting more deeply with themselves and others when and if they choose. Her intention is to honor all inclusion. 

At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify the overlapping distinction between sex and intimacy.
  2. Understand the concept of internal consent
  3. Utilize at least two mindful intimacy practices for themselves and their clients.

Giselle L. Jones, LCSW, CMF, CSAT is a private practice psychotherapist who specializes in sex therapy and sex/love addiction. Following a career as a performer and in youth education, her passion for creativity and social justice has led her to work with children and families in South LA, individuals, couples and groups at The Center for Healthy Sex, and to train NYPD recruits and UCLA medical students to sensitively serve people struggling with a range of issues. She received her Certification in Mindfulness Facilitation in 2015 at UCLA through the MARC Institute, and is a guest lecturer and mentor for their teacher training program
