Introduction to the 4-Dimensional Wheel of Sexual Experience

In this brief lecture where the late Dr. Gina Ogden, PhD introduces the 4-D Wheel - an Integrative Model for Exploring Desire and Intimacy. This is a model she developed from data collected from a study of over 3400 people about their sexual lives - what nourished, healed and hurt this aspect of the human experience. The 4-D Wheel is a treatment model and process that is remarkably healing when used with both individuals and relatonships. Through utilizing movement, ritual, concretizing and holding space, clients are able to explore how pain and pleasure locates on all four quadrants of body, mind, emotions and meaning, and through this exploration claim an ecstatic liberating story.
