Past Community Call

Partner Call – Holistic Sexuality: Tools for Guiding our Youth

| hosted by Youth Passageways Extended Community

In this call, Marisa Taborga Byrne shares about how she frames and holds holistic sexuality conversations with youth. The intention is for this to be a time of learning, sharing and gaining tools, asking questions, and being in dialogue with one another for us to better serve our youth.

For her curriculum, Marisa combines her experiences of rite of passage, sexual education and holistic healing. Marisa has been working with youth since she was one herself, and began to hold ceremonial rites of passage for adolescents and adults in 2012. As a recipient of the powerful healing attributes of nature, she is a strong advocate for soul discovery in the wild. Marisa is now fully dedicated to empowering youth through the lens of holistic sexual health education, believing that education is the preventative medicine of potential trauma and the key to fully embracing and embodying our wild, natural selves.
