The POP program enriched my life and will continue to do so. The experience of the course itself was full, complete and satisfying on its own, but even better, it set the stage for future growth. I love that I can revisit the course materials and that they are robust enough to foster continued learning. Not only do I feel empowered by the information given in the course, I feel emboldened by the experience of sisterhood and community. Before this course I felt naive and timid (and embarrassed about my ignorance). After this course, I feel confident about my knowledge of arousal anatomy, inspired to share it with other women, and courageous to continue to explore my sexuality. In addition, and perhaps most importantly, this course also deepened my spirituality and my commitment to honor the voice of wisdom within me. Big thanks to Ren!
Before staring this program, I was struggling to move through recovery from a pelvic floor disorder and chronic pelvic pain. While I had already significantly lessened this pain with other methods, going through this course significantly helped me to become more embodied and aware of the impact of my nervous system on my arousal and ability to enjoy sexual pleasure. Through the P.O.P. program, I learned a variety of accessible tools to empower myself in my own sexual exploration and healing. And I now thankfully feel much more comfortable in my body and with my emotional needs as an sovereign sexual being. Enough so that I am experiencing more ease of pleasure overall in my life and in my sex life. There’s much more to explore! And I’m very grateful to Ren for providing the safe and tender space and informative sex positive resources to continue to draw from as I move forward in my journey.

I am so grateful to Ren and the fellow participants of POP! What a discovery-laden journey we’ve had together! The course gave me permission to curiously look at my body, my thoughts and my desires and how these desires relate to pleasure. Ren’s homework and practice guides are often innovative, always helpful and sometimes appropriately edgy! Her teaching style is compassionate and experiential- her friendly professionalism creates the perfectly supportive environment to explore this transformative topic. 5 star recommendation.

Before taking the POP program I was wanting more passion and sexual encounters with my husband. I was nervous at first to talk with people I didn’t know about these intimate topics but Ren creates such safe affirming connected space that it was easy to share with the other women. The deep sharing for others often mirrored and validated my own experience and also gave me areas to grow and challenge myself. Learning about my own arousal anatomy and then sharing that exploration with my partner was empowering and joyful. My partner and I have more open conversations about sex play, have a larger variety of ways to explore our bodies and have more fun and patience with each other.

As a result of participating in the POP Program, I have experienced a new level of conscious awareness of my sexuality and my ability to sense my arousal. What I once thought was lost to me as a 61 year old woman, has now been found, reclaimed, enriched and awakened. Rensselear knows women’s bodies, our trials, tribulations and celebrations. She creates a safe space to acknowledge and transform what we know and don’t know and brings you into an opportunity to deeply discover the wealth of resources we have within each of us. Take this will change your life!

Before taking POP I understood the physical reproductive anatomy, but did not know much about the pleasure anatomy aside from the clitoris (and I am an OBGYN!) This course gave me such a lovely introduction to female pleasure anatomy (which is woefully under-taught in schools, including medical schools) and how to connect with it, use it, and explore it. It also gave me practical tools and techniques that will help some of my patients have a better experience in their own lives as well. The course also gave me hope for a life full of pleasure as I age, and how to maintain and grow my capacity for pleasure over my lifetime, both with my partner and for myself.

I got put in touch with Ren and her work, and I’m so delighted about the experiences that I had. What Ren did for me has forever formed my love and sex lives.

There’s something very special about the space Ren creates and the way she interacts with her clients that connected sex and love in the most joyful and accepting way.

Thank you, Ren, for your generosity and loving spirit. This is certainly the most diving and caring work I’ve found in the sexual space.

Ren held a container of complete acceptance, love and healing, where I felt accepted for who I was beneath all of my learned social and cultural identity. I was able to allow and say yes to my desires as they unfolded during the workshop. It showed me a sense of okay-ness of who I am, that I long to bring out in my daily life, and relating with people. It was one of the most powerful learning experiences. I look forward to more.

I had a few sessions with Ren about over 6 months ago. It was a turning point for me in how I relate to my sexuality. The teachings and practices that she used continue to help me. I feel like I am still benefited by them even after so many months, and I continue to find new depths of my own sexuality now, after having done this powerful work with Ren.
