Sex in the Forbidden Zone: A Focal Point in the Struggle for Personal Transformation and Cultural Evolution

October 20, 1990 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm PDT


Dr. Rutter’s work on sexual exploitation does more than focus attention on seldom discussed areas of sexual boundary violation. He shows how forbidden-zone relationships, when ethically pursued, have immeasurable value in providing us access to the deepest resources of self, which, in turn, can help us to explore and integrate personal shadow issues relating to power, to sexual fantasy and to the search for healing and wholeness. The workshop will allow discussion of the way these personal issues are linked in the forbidden zone to wider social issues such as our culture’s struggle to re-balance masculine and feminine power, and to re-value the inner life and the life of the unconscious.
