Dear Somatica Community,
With you, we are watching as the coronavirus / COVID-19 increases its presence in the U.S. Our thoughts are especially with those for whom this global public health issue is immediate, personal, and painful. For all of us, it is a time of great uncertainty.
We Are Monitoring Coronavirus Trends Closely
We want to let you know that we are going to be monitoring Coronavirus trends closely – and are keeping up with information coming from the World Health Organization, the CDC and the California Dept. of Public Health.
Also, we are working on back-up plans to make sure you will still be able to get your sex coaching training this year, while reducing your risk of exposure to the virus. This will include making sure we follow all safety recommendations during in-person training. It may also mean that we will offer some portion of the training online.
Update: We’ve been getting a lot of requests – from across the country and world – from people interested in taking the Somatica Sex & Relationship Coach Core Training for personal growth or professional certification. The current situation in the world has inspired us to reformat our training so people can begin their sex and relationship coach certification online and remotely. Then, when it is safe to do so, we will all come together to practice the physically interactive parts of the training. Read about our new Online Sex Coach Training Option.
At the moment, all workshops and trainings will proceed as scheduled. But as public health advisories change, please know that we might need to reschedule certain trainings or offer some portion of them online.
Also, when we send out welcome letters, they will include the health and safety procedures that we are going to follow for any in-person trainings.
Upcoming Free Intros
We will be offering our upcoming FREE intros online instead of in-person. Please feel free to keep registering for the relevant intro, and we will send you a link via Zoom (a free video conferencing platform) to attend.
Staying Connected During Challenging Times
We invite you to keep an eye out for Somatica newsletters as we will be sending you opportunities to help you stay in touch with yourself, your loved ones, and your body through these challenges.
In Love and Health,
Celeste & Danielle
P.S. We are sure you are currently receiving heaps of reminders and guidelines from Public Health Officials. We want to make sure you are staying safe too, so here they are:
While the CA Department of Public Health continues to advise that the risk of Coronavirus to the general population remains low, recently updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that the following high-risk groups stay home as much as possible: a) people 60 and over, b) people with serious chronic medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and lung disease.
