Isabella honestly has been the guide I always was seeking and who I wish I had growing up as I felt alone most of my life or not heard. Her nature of being and “Isabella-isms” is so simple and yet so PROFOUND. I am always the first to sign up for anything she offers if I can because I know I will always gain something from her. My relationship with myself and others has grown immensely because of her wisdom. I find myself constantly saying to myself and others, “wanna hear what Isabella says about that?” Everything is so tangible and obtainable with her. No one needs fancy items in and out of the bedroom to get her message. It’s inside of you, but she holds sacredness for it and reminds us or helps rewrite narratives that don’t serve us anymore
Isabella is an amazing sensuality doula who is adept at creating safer containers for female identifying people. I have taken a number of her courses, and I feel like with each course I take from her my patriarchal conditioning is chipped away bit by bit. Because of Isabella's teachings, I am redefining what pleasure means to me and bringing pleasure into everything I do! I find that I actually get MORE done in less time when I orient myself towards pleasure!
The Pleasure Devotional has been a life-changing experience for me. Recent life stressors and re-triggered traumas had had a proud impact on my libido and feelings of safety surrounding sexual activities, including sex with myself. After spending over a year in weekly therapy, I had found deep healing and emotional recovery, but still felt detached from my sexuality, hesitant to sexually engage. The structured nature of The Pleasure Devotional gave me an easy-to-follow series of journal prompts and self-date activities: 30 days of actions with 50 days between the first call and last. This helped me honor the reality it’s okay to take my time and be gentle with myself in this process. The calls throughout the journey helped me continue to feel engaged and supported, and allowed me to learn through the experiences of the other womxn and non-binary folx enrolled in the course. Ultimately, this gave me the gentle direction and support I needed to create a shift and lasting changes in my life. After dedicating this time and intention to my body and self, I have been able to reengage with my sexuality and sexual self. I have been able to let go of dysfunctional habits that kept me feeling temporarily safe, but ultimately unseen. Through this course, I have found myself again.
