No one should live with a belief that their sexuality is a sin, their body is something to be ashamed of, and their desire is an unfortunate lust they must control.

Unfortunately though, the Gospel of Sex Shame has infiltrated many aspects of society.

Maybe you grew up in a culture, church or family offering very defined (and generally negative) beliefs about your sexuality, body and the way you express in the world. The overarching message conveyed was:

You, your body, your desire and your sexuality are NOT okay.

This bullshit dogma about sex and bodies controls many aspects of our lives including how we view ourselves, how we relate to others, and how we think about sex, love and intimacy.

But perhaps the saddest thing this dogma creates are fractures within your being. When your sexual expression is separated from your emotional, social and spiritual expression, you’re denied intimacy with your Self, Spirit and Soul.

But I’ve created a solution to this separation and shame…

Pussy Church of Soul Embodiment: an 8 week course of holy temple teachings on how to praise at the alter of your sacred body and embody your soul.

Why did I develop this passage of rites?…

Because your sexuality is a holy human expression that creates radical shifts in human consciousness.

Your sexuality is your life force energy.

It’s the creative force of the universe.

It brings life into the world, and therefore brings love into the world.

And contrary to most belief systems, it is through your sexuality that you can embody your soul. 

Welcome to PUSSY CHURCH…

A temple that encourages bowing down at the altar of your own being.

A temple that professes your birthright of freedom, creativity and sexual passion.

A temple that honors your power, body and unique expression and soul contribution to this planet.

A temple that believes you are fully supported by Spirit and Soul in all that you do, and that your pussy is an entryway into communion with Spirit and Soul.

January 27 through March 22, 2019

OPENING INVOCATION + RITUAL (January27) 

We will join together for an opening invocation + ritual that sets the space for this course and opens our container for transformation, connection, intention and transmission.

WEEK 1: SANCTUARY OF LOVE (January 28)

Love is the fundamental foundation that heals everything, and the base of all sexual healing begins with discovering the power of self love. Most of the mystical traditions and powerful modern therapeutic systems teach that real transformation exists when it’s sourced from a place of love. Wounding and trauma from dogmatic beliefs about sexuality unfortunately damage your innate sense of love for self, which is why this first week you enter into the sanctuary of love. You’ll engage in embodied practices that help you tap into this source of self love from within, healing emotional wounding and trauma so you can thrive on this planet.

WEEK 2: THE THRONE OF THE HEART (February 4)

In Pussy Church, rather than facing toward the pulpit for messages of divine wisdom, you’ll turn into the heart for guidance and intuition. A massive healing aspect of coming into contact with the throne of the heart is rooting into love, safety and belonging in the body. If you’ve received negative beliefs about your sexuality and then partake in sexual or sensual activities with yourself or others, your nervous system may feel threatened that you’ll lose love, safety or belonging. A core aspect of week 2’s teachings and practices is soothing the nervous system so you can tap into intuition and receive the kind of love and touch you desire.

WEEK 3: INTEGRATION (February 11)

This is the first week of integration, which is left open so you can fully integrate the materials, or catch up on practices. This course is in~depth and fast paced, therefore integration is important for everyone to catch a breath. 

WEEK 4: HOLY RAPTURE RELEASE RITUAL (February 18)

Pussy Church is built on the foundations of valuing your emotions so you can create inner and outer realities that allow you to thrive in your sexuality and life. It’s common for painful memories, past traumatic experiences, negative belief systems and sex negative cultural residue to cling to your body. For example, you may no longer believe sex is a sin, yet that belief system still elicits a block or freeze in sex that is counter to what you truly desire. The Holy Rapture Release Ritual week is about how to cleanse and release cords we have to past relationships, church or religion, belief systems or emotions such as shame, fear or anger.

WEEK 5: BODY COMMUNION & ANOINTING SELF AS SACRED (February 25)

Your body is sacred. Your sexuality is sacred. And you deserve to live into this sacred Self in every way. Most of us received counter productive sex education with no understanding of how our body works on a practical or spiritual level. Week 5 is about exploring your body in an honoring way, repairing damage from when you learned to cut yourself off from certain body parts because they felt dangerous. This module is a living sexual re~education, an opportunity to restore and explore your sexual experience, and feel a sense of honor and sacredness for your body.

WEEK 6: INTEGRATION (March 4)

This is the second week of integration, again open so you can fully integrate (or catch up!). This is a bridge week between deep internal work, that leads into the next two weeks of pleasurable and orgasmic holy magic. 

WEEK 7: SEX AS A SACRED SUPERPOWER (March 11)

Sex is a sacred power, and yet we were taught that it was something sinful, disgusting or inappropriate. Week 7 flips that narrative into one that doesn’t just state how powerful sex can be, but through embodied practices and rituals actually shows you the transformational powers that come from intimately connecting to your body and sexuality. This week is also about boundaries and how they create power within and have the capacity to move you into experiencing transcendent and transformational sex, both with yourself and others.

WEEK 8: OPENING THE ORGASMIC TEMPLE (March 18)

Turned on women will change the world. But how can women be turned on when so many of their sexual experiences are wrapped up in shame, pain and blame? I believe the way out is to discover the orgasmic temple within. I’m not necessarily even talking orgasms. What I’m talking about is finding the WILD woman underneath the layers of shame that repressed your wild in the first place. That mystical, magical, expansive and authentic woman who resides within YOU, who patriarchy has unsuccessfully attempted to drown. She’s still there, deep inside, and week 6 is about discovering this orgasmic temple within.

CLOSING RITUAL (March 24)

Our program completes with a closing ritual that explores how to use your pleasure or orgasm as nourishment. This closing ritual will let you take forward the learnings and experiences you’ve had in Pussy Church and integrate them into your life.

What other’s are saying about Pussy Church…

“I had recently been learning more and seeing how sexuality and spirituality are connected, and I really wanted to learn how to connect to the more sacred and spiritual aspects of my sexuality. I’m only on week 3 at the moment, but even with just the breast massage practice I feel more connected to my body and sometimes have found it easier to orgasm and feel pleasure in my body, something I find extremely difficult if not impossible. I am very encouraged to continue connecting with the lessons offered in the course and am more hopeful about my sacred sexuality than I was before I started Pussy Church.”

- E.B.

“To see the other women who had joined Pussy Church was beautiful. It opened my perspective that there are other people struggling with similar things and doing their work. What a bliss! I felt so much love for these brave and beautiful beings. I feel more being part of a global tribe of witches and priestesses who are on their heart’s journey to use their sexual power for their healing, for planetary healing, for ancestral healing and for the healing of all beings on planet earth. I think this way of feeling connected to life, to healing, to a loving and caring community has become more part of my everyday life which is a silent but enormous shift.”

- Isabel

“Before [Pussy Church] I was avoiding sex, ashamed and confused that I’m married to a man and attracted to women, and uncomfortable with my appearance. Now I’m confident with my leg hair, mostly comfortable with instigating conversations about sex with my husband, have a better understanding about what sexy is and that sexy can just be for me, less ashamed of my fantasies, more at peace with my ‘trauma’ and no longer (mostly) feel the need to always share or compare it when others share their trauma.” 

- Jade P

Who am I?

Hi! I’m Rachel (though many call me Rae). I’m a Soul Embodiment Coach and Sacred Sexuality Specialist, and I help you uncover blocks, shame, trauma or guilt around your sexuality so you can blossom into the fully actualized human you already are, living into your authentic sexual expression, and thriving through your soul driven purpose and service on planet earth.

I specialize in working with spiritual seekers ~ the activists, breaker of chains, destroyers of paradigms, alchemists, culture makers and nature lovin’ healers of the world ~ who feel disconnected from their sexuality and want to integrate it into all aspects of their lives without feeling the burdens of past belief systems, religious dogmas or sexual/emotional traumas interfering with their true expression.

I show you how to feel sacred in your sexiness, holy in your sexuality, divine in your orgasmic ecstasy, and whole in who you are. I do this through ancient, powerful and transformational tools and sacred sexuality practices, while navigating fear and shame that rises up when we start alchemizing our emotions, transmuting our pain, and fully opening up to our authentic sexual and sacred expression in the world.

This is our work together in Pussy Church:

✷ Radical awakening.

✷ Transformed pain.

✷ Transmuted trauma.

✷ Healed hearts.

✷ Surrendered pleasure.

✷ Reconnection to body, heart and soul.

✷ Feel good, full embodied ecstasy.

This is a holy revolution… the work of sacred activism.

This is  PUSSY CHURCH of Soul Embodiment.

With an M.A. in Religion, I extensively researched sexual and spiritual healing through neuroscience, trauma recovery and embodied interspirituality, focusing on holistic healing for those marginalized or spiritually traumatized by the Christian Church through LGBTQ+ identification and/or sexual suppression or abuse. I also completed a 600hr Sex, Love and Relationship coaching program from the Tantric Institute for Integrated Sexuality.

“I feel more aware of myself [since doing Pussy Church]. I feel more connected to my body and I have a better relationship with trauma that I had suppressed. The breast massage [practice] was particularly powerful for me. I now feel a warm tingly energy that radiates from my heart, through my chest and into my arms. I imagine that with continued practice this energy will course throughout my whole body.”

- Anonymous

“Pussy Church opened me up to the possibility of experiencing sacred sexuality and combing sacred sexuality and sacred spirituality. I learned that physical movement and motion plus breath practices are key to getting in touch with our sacred selves, and I was able to touch in to this part of myself through Pussy Church.”

- Elizabeth P.

Your pleasure is your POWER! NOW is the time to reclaim this sacred rite of passage!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Pussy Church LGBTQI friendly and can I do this program even if I don't have a physical pussy?
Wonderful question. Short answer: YES. I try to be as inclusive as possible with my teachings (though I am constantly making mistakes and improving as I go and learn). I want this program to be available for anyone who identifies as female or who has had a female experience in this world. These embodied exercises, practices and rituals are designed for humans with vulvas, vaginas or breasts, but that does not mean they can’t be modified for those who do not have a vulva, vagina or breasts. I will mention in the recordings, for example, “focus on your womb, or on the ENERGY of your womb.” If you identify as gender queer or trans and you have a desire to do this program, and you feel comfortable speaking with me, then please reach out so we can make sure the practices work for you in a safe way.

I am a practicing Christian. Will this program be okay for me, or will it threaten or insult my faith?
Also a wonderful question. Short answer: I welcome you with wide open arms no matter what your faith orientation is. I in NO way want to villainize your faith, or convince you that you shouldn’t be whatever you are whether that’s Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, atheist, or something else. My goal isn’t to make you NOT believe whatever it is you believe in. Rather, my aim in this program is to help you root into YOUR embodied expression of yourself… to move away from any shame, blame, fear, or pain you inherited from religious (or cultural, or societal, or educational) dogmas so you can actually find the TRUTH of YOUR sexual expression. So you can feel safe to experience pleasure! So you can reconnect with your pussy and create phenomenal sexual experiences with the beloved(s) in your life! I want you to know that you can have God AND pleasure. That you can have faith AND good sex. That you can have grace AND orgasms. That you can have Jesus AND sexual energy coursing through your body. Now I will say that I’m pretty blunt about the damage religion and dogmatic beliefs have done to people. From a scientific perspective, it’s impossible to argue against. But even within that, I still don’t believe that the religion itself is the culprit. If you’re open minded and want to explore how you can have your faith and your sexuality, then this will be a beautiful space for you.

I’ve never done anything like this before. Am I capable of doing this program?
Your absolutely capable of doing this program! I was once in your shoes, too, and now look at where I am. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never done any sort of sexuality work before and have no idea what Tantra is. It doesn’t matter if you barely touch yourself. It doesn’t matter if you’ve experienced trauma. It doesn’t matter if you’re a bonified sex queen already. I guarantee you will be able to do these practices in the way you’re meant to do them, and that they will transform your life regardless of where you are at in your relationship with your sexuality.

What if I can’t keep up with the pace of the intensive?
I’m the first to know that this work is PROFOUND and INTENSE! I also know that I possess magic super powers in taking people really deep. But please don’t let that scare you away! I’m all for you doing this at your own pace. In fact, I will ENCOURAGE you to do it at your own pace. If that means you only show up for the live calls, that’s great. If that means you only do one practice a week, that’s totally fine. If that means it takes you 3 months to get through the modules, that’s totally cool.

There will be a group momentum happening, so staying in tune with the group helps, but you’ll have access to all the calls and information for a lifetime (or as long as the Internet is around), and so if you can’t get through it all 7 weeks of Pussy Church, do not worry! You’ll have access to the information whenever you can make time for it. Plus you’ll have access to subsequent runs of Pussy Church as well.

Additionally, I built in a week of integration because I knew it would be important for everyone to have time to catch up midway through the program.

What if I have an awesome sex life and no trauma? Is this still good for me?
YES!! It will be AMAZING for you. This isnt a program dedicated solely to trauma healing. Week 2’s module is a deep cleansing purification process that will help you cleanse any trauma that you may have picked up in your body whether you’ve been actively traumatized or not. All the other week’s modules are focused more on pleasure and celebration and orgasmic sensations, getting in touch with your body and really connecting the sacred and the sexy in your life. The overall focus is on integrating our sexuality with our spirituality, and finding selfcare and selfpleasure daily rituals that enhance your relationship to both yourself and the Universe/Divine/Cosmic Oneness. Plus having EPIC orgasms, experiencing pleasure in parts of your yoni you never knew could experience pleasure, and creating more wetness and sensations in your body than you can currently imagine.

What if I have unresolved sexual trauma? Will be good for me?
This course is set up to help aid your trauma healing journey. But if you have active trauma, as in the event just recently happened and you haven’t processed it with a therapist or any other coach or guide, or you feel flooded with PTSD on a daily basis, then this won’t be a good fit for you because it won’t have the direct support you would need. I would recommend applying for my 1 on 1 Sacred Sexual Alchemical Container or reaching out to me for some other specialists in this field so you can get extra support.

If you have residual sexual trauma that you’ve been working with for years that you’ve done other healing practices or have gone to therapy for, and you feel like you’re still stuck with the effects of trauma on your sexual life but overall you’re dedicated to growth and deep transformation, then YES! Pussy Church might be amazing for you and your healing. It might be challenging, and yes you might have to look some shadows in the face. But you’ll be held in a container of love, safety and belonging and I will do my absolute best to partner with you through your process. I would recommend to do the Deep Dive version of the program, as I will be able to better support and hold you through this healing process. If you have trauma and you’re worried about the program, reach out to me here.

How much time do I need to dedicate to this?
Each week there are 90 to 120 minute Zoom calls that include a lecture for that week’s topic + a discussion + a Q&A on the material. In addition to these calls, each module has up to an hour of meditations, practices or rituals that you’ll complete on your own time. These embodied experiences have accompanying videos that explain how you should do the exercise. Overall, you’ll need to commit between 2.5 to 3.5 hours a week to Pussy Church.

Really though, it’s up to you how much time you invest in this experience. If you want to do it in it’s fullness, then I’d suggest setting aside about 3 hours a week. But you’ll have access to the course forever and can therefore move at your own pace.

I am pregnant. Can I participate in Pussy Church?
Yes, you can participate, though some of the exercises may need to be modified. Please message me and talk to me about where you’re at in your pregnancy so we can be sure that this program will serve you.

This feels like a lot of money and I don’t know if I can justify spending this much. Will it really be worth it?
I know this can feel like a big investment, especially if you’re not used to investing in yourself. And I know the struggle of trying to figure out if something is worth spending a big chunk of money! The first thing I do in these situations is let my intuition lead. If I feel a strong pull in my heart towards something, I listen to that. Do I really want money to be the thing that interferes with something that I intuitively know will offer deep healing and transformational growth? I also tune into WHY I’m saying I “can’t” afford something. Can I really, truly not afford it? Or am I choosing to spend my money elsewhere instead?

I also look back at all the times I’ve made a monetarily investment in myself, and I know that the value I received is almost tenfold what I paid. I can’t answer whether you can justify spending the money on this or not. I do know that when I was only making $750/month in grad school, I chose to invest in the most expensive thing I had ever done in my life: The Love, Sex, and Relationship Certification with the Tantric Institute of Integrated Sexuality. Rationally “I couldn’t afford it,” and yet in my heart I knew I had to make it happen, so I put trust into the Universe that it would be “worth it.” And it was the BEST decision I ever made in my entire life.

Reach out if money is the only thing preventing you from joining this intensive and we can have a chat about it. I will NOT try to convince you to spend your money on this—that’s not my job and that just feels straight up icky. I will help you see if this intensive is alignment with you right now or not, and then you can make the choice of where to invest your money.

I have a few limited scholarships available — see details under the purchase option.

I’m not sure if the timing is right. Will you be doing this again?
Yes, I’ll be offering Pussy Church again, but probably not until 2019 (though I run my programs intuitively so I’m not 100% sure on the dates). This round is a BETA LAUNCH, meaning it’s the first time I’ve ever run. Therefore, subsequent runs may not be in this format and the the overall cost of the program will go up. If the timing doesn’t feel right you can work with me 1 on 1 in the Sexual Alchemy Transformation Container. Reach out here.

I still have unanswered questions. What should I do?
Please use the form below to schedule a 15 minute call with me to really feel into whether you have a YES for this program or not, and to ask any other questions you may have that haven’t been answered anywhere else. You can also email me at Rachel@rachelhalder.com. I will never try to convince you to do something you’re not interested in doing. It’s purely an opportunity to talk it out and feel into if this is right for you or not.
