#115 | Vagina Therapy: Paint Your Yoni Into Healing & Liberation with Stephanie Rose Freeman
About This Episode
“Stephanie Rose Freeman is an Australian visionary artist creating soulful oil paintings depicting erotic spirituality and radiant, empowered human beings. Based in Melbourne in her bus-home, Stephanie is exploring themes around empowered sexuality through her luscious erotic oil paintings and commissioned vulva portraits.
Her paintings feature radiant humans basking in their sexual essence with flowers bursting out of them, often incorporating sacred geometry or energetic circuitry to hint at the energetic side of sexuality. She also paints erotic commissions, teaches painting workshops and offers The Yoni Painting Ritual – a transformational one-on-one painting ritual of body love and self-acceptance. Her work transmits the shameless beauty and sacredness of the sensual experience, with the intention of inspiring the viewer to remember their sexual divinity.”
“I actually gave myself adrenal fatigue and totally burned out. That was the signal for me to step into my feminine and slow down and actually listen to what’s going on inside my body. The answer has been ‘slow down’ and it’s been amazing actually.”
