Join us for this powerful and transformative retreat for singles, couples, and partners… novices, practitioners, and professionals... healers, therapists, and sacred intimates... anyone who wants to explore the Tantric approach to sexual healing, sacred sexuality, and conscious relationship/intimacy skills. This safe, practical, and respectful traning offers a unique opportunity for you to learn proven methods and effective techniques to:

• Identify, release, and move beyond sexual wounds, resistances, armoring, and belief systems – including fears and negative attitudes or patterns that block your ability to experience pleasure in your body and joy in your life.

• Explore the bio-energetic relationship between mind and body and learn to transform past conditioning and messages about your body and your sexuality – giving yourself permission to become more alive, aware, and empowered as a sexual/sensual being.

• Learn tantric techniques involving breath, movement, and sound to raise your consciousness, open and awaken your body's energy centers (chakras), and allow the full potential of your orgasmic energy to permeate your whole being.

• Balance and harmonize your inner feminine and inner masculine in order to create a deeper, more authentic connection with yourself and with others.

• Re-connect sexual energy with heart energy to experience more expansive orgasms and to be more connected with yourself and your partner during lovemaking.

This training is available as a 3-day weekend workshop or as a private coaching arrangement. Some of the tools and approaches we'll draw upon during this training include SkyDancing Tantra® methods and techniques for healing and transformation, as well as Pelvic-Heart Integration, somatic healing, and trauma release techniques developed by Jack Painter, Ph.D and Dr. Peter Levine.

The weekend workshop may feature guest presentations and offerings from experts in the fields of intimacy coaching, sex therapy, and sexological bodywork. The weekend program will also include a very special Saturday evening Puja (sacred ritual) devoted to celebrating our bodies as sacred temples and to honoring our sexual health and wholeness as a divine birthright.

No previous experience necessary. This training is appropriate for singles, couples, and partners. If you have any specific needs or issues you would like to address further, please feel free to call (408) 309-0962 or email
