Learn the art of desire, and how your capacity for and comfort with desire (in all realms) relates to your sense of self, your capacity for intimacy and intimate self-expression.
This course explores elements of LDS culture that are inhibiting to sexual self-confidence as well as elements of our theology that are grounding and permission-giving.
Join the Art of Desire course, designed for LDS women, to challenge inhibiting false cultural traditions while offering you a new, life-expanding understanding of desire, its relationship to your personal development, and the integration of your God-given sexuality.
This course is perfect for those who:
- Have felt “broken” given their lack of sexual desire
- Feel shame, resentment, or confusion around sex
- Sometimes lack self-confidence in their lives and relationships.
- Feel a lack of sexual interest in general or for their spouse
- Want greater confidence and authenticity with their spouse.

By committing to this course and working through the concepts, you will acquire greater self-knowledge and self-confidence, as well as a more robust relationship to your sexuality and ultimately your spouse. This course is perfect for those who have felt sexually “broken”, lack sexual desire, or want to create a sexual relationship that feels more passionate and authentic.
This course is also offered as a 3-day Workshop addressing the same principles live, more in-depth, and distraction-free with Dr. Finlayson-Fife. For more information, click here.
“My life and marriage has changed incredibly for good. Recently my husband teared up in bed because he was so overwhelmed and happy with how our relationship is moving forward. … Bless him. It has taken me 38 years to choose him, and to own my sexuality. This happened surprisingly quickly once true principles were introduced to me. Those life-changing events came through you and the course I signed up for. Life is good. I don’t know how to thank you.”

Reviews From Course Participants
"This class has been awesome! (I'm so sad it's ending.) You've really helped to revolutionize the way I approach my sexuality. I'm having so much fun with all of these changes! I hope I can help my daughters have a healthier/happier experience with sex. I would love taking a class on how to teach our children about sex--I hope you end up doing that and that it's available as an internet course. Thanks again for the class. It was brilliant and I so appreciate your approach to the subject (and life in general).
"Because of the impact you have had on my life and my marriage, I want to thank you for all you have done to acquire the knowledge and eloquence to be able to understand and explain these principles of relationships and sexuality to people like me. My life and marriage has changed incredibly for good. Recently my husband teared up in bed because he was so overwhelmed and happy with how our relationship is moving forward. He is a good, patient and loyal man. Bless him. It has taken me 38 years to choose him, and to own my sexuality. This happened surprisingly quickly once true principles were introduced to me. Those life-changing events came through you and the course I signed up for. Life is good. I don't know how to thank you."
"I want to thank you so much for offering this class. My husband and I have been married for 5 years. I love my husband, he's my best friend and the best dad in the world, and we have a really great marriage. In all that time, I can only think of 2 times where I wanted to have sex, where I felt any passion at all. We have talked about it a lot. He's encouraged me to just let go and get out of my head, but I didn't know how. And I didn't know how to learn being LDS; it seems a taboo subject. Then I saw an ad for your class on Facebook. It sounds funny but I felt the spirit when I saw it, like it was an answer to my unsaid prayer. And all through the first class, I wept because finally all of the feelings and uncertainty I had were being acknowledged and validated. I would like to say that our sex life has improved dramatically and we are enjoying each other often. I think I've been scared to apply what I've learned and really consider some of the things that might be holding me back, but I think we'll get better at this. I have a jumping point now and I don't know how I would have found it without you and this class. So thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I think this is really a turning point for me and our marriage. I wish I could send you a fruit basket or something to show how grateful I am ;)"
"I absolutely LOVED this course! It was truly amazing, Jennifer. What you taught completely opened up my view of my sexuality and has been so liberating. I have been more relaxed and present when I'm with my husband. I have a lot to learn still but I feel possibilities in a way that I never have before. THANK YOU FOR TEACHING THIS CLASS !"
"This class is helping me to understand myself better, and realize the issues that I need to deal with. Sex really is more than the world portrays it to be. It really does incorporate a whole relationship, with yourself and your partner! Who knew desire had to do so much with your self-esteem and how you view yourself. I hope I can teach my children the amazing potential intimacy can have in their lives."
"I want to take a minute to let you know how much I’m enjoying this seminar series. It is remarkable how so much of what you’re sharing with us is weaving in with things I’ve been contemplating for a long time—it’s like I’ve come to this intersection in my understanding where desire, self-love, healing from depression, self-expression, trust, honesty and so much more are all converging and I’m making connections between them in ways I haven’t before. I love the homework assignments you give—the questions are very thought-provoking. I’ve been thinking about our last seminar every day, sometimes to the point that I can’t sleep at night because I’m thinking so much (in which case I just get up and write about it ). You have a real gift and I want to thank you for all the choices and work you've done to get to this point, where you can share it with us and bless so many lives. The ideas you are sharing/teaching are fascinating and life-altering."
"Thank you for developing this class and making it available. I've been talking about it to my friends and encouraging them to check out your courses and workshops. I am really learning so much and am so grateful."
"Just this minute I finished listening to the webinar and it was FANTASTIC. . . . I have been recommending it to everyone I know. What you have to say is not only important, I feel it is essential. Thank you for your wisdom, learning, knowledge and candor. Your words are gifts to me."
