“We are erotic by nature.” This is the core belief underlying all that Darshana Avila offers as an Erotic Wholeness coach and guide. Supporting folx to establish a deeply felt sense of pleasure and ease in their bodies and relationships is her joy. Guiding folx to reconsider the stories they’ve been told about who they ought to be and what it takes to belong is her passion. She shares all this through a somatic sex and intimacy coaching style that is trauma informed, justice oriented and nature based.
