How do we relate in this age of change, stress and disconnect?

How do we find a partner, or deepen with our chosen partner, whilst running a busy life together and juggling the demands of work, family, and the bills?

How do we keep the spark alive and enjoy intimacy while attending to the challenges of life and relationships?

 

Most of us yearn to connect in meaningful, passionate, and hot intimate relationships that deepen and grow over time. In our intimacy work we teach the core skills that are necessary to live a rich intimate life. We uncover blocks, blind spots, and the habitual patterns that hold us back from love. We explore fresh ways of being and relating to open up new possibilities in intimacy.

Our approach to intimacy and relationships is grounded in decades of practical experience with real people. In addition to our international workshop schedule, I have counseled couples for over twenty years and logged over 40,000 hours of face-to-face sessions. I have consulted and advised numerous high profile individuals who can afford the very best advise out there, from Oscar winning movie stars and Grammy winning musicians and billionaire CEOs and entrepreneurs.

The combination of this professional work with my Tantric training means we can offer the best of both Western psychology and Eastern thought.

One of the things I have learned in my career is that dogmatic, idealistic approaches to relationship do not work. Whether it’s a cookie cutter women’s magazine approach to dating, society’s advice for a good marriage, or a fashionable new age approach to Tantric relationships, the unrealistic advice falls short when it comes to living these ideas out in a real relationship, with all its demands.

To have a thriving intimate life, the approach must be both realistic and potent, practical and profound.

 

Creating Intimacy and Deep Connection

Intimacy, though mostly understood as the close connection between partners begins with being connected to ourselves, the sensations of our body and emotions moving through us. Before we can become truly intimate with another, we must learn to listen to sensations and emotions and translate those signals into responsive action.

The first step in any human interaction is the ability to focus one’s attention and become intimate with oneself. This includes the kind of bodily feeling and awareness that allows us to feel another. Intimacy with the present moment allows for real comprehension and connection.

The bad news is that this kind of connection with one’s experience is rare in today’s world. The good news is that these are skills that can be learned.

Attention can be cultivated and the body can be sensitized to feel and connect intimately with oneself and another. For this to happen we engage with the body as a means to sensitize and bring the entire body “online”. The more online the body, the more availability and power there is for any relational engagement. Intimacy like this is not relegated to only intimate partners, but can be cultivated with any being regardless if they are our partner or not.

Brought alive through Erotic Friction, intimacy can be an eternal dance of bliss, ecstasy, awakening, and love.

Relaxing the Heart Open

As we experience relationship, both in our upbringing and romantically, we develop closures and safeguards against disappointment and heartache. Feeling deep love can also bring up feelings of pain and memories of loss we have experienced.

In our events you will connect with your heart and sensitize yourself to it’s contractions and openings. You will learn how to feel yourself, which not only connects you to your heart and it’s gifts and yearnings, but also allows you to discern better whom to trust and when to allow for vulnerability.

These practices also work to strengthen the ability to set appropriate boundaries and know when you feel a ‘yes’ and when you feel a ‘no’. This clarity results in a deeper relaxation and openness of the heart.

 

The Play of Erotic Friction

Erotic friction is the dynamic that makes sparks fly when two eyes meet across a room, fingers entwine, and lips first meet.

When two people (regardless of gender) engage in the play of erotic friction the strongest attraction is produced through their different individual expressions. Learning how to artfully play in this realm, without getting caught in gender stereotypes or assuming rigid roles, is one of the keys to unlocking lasting attraction.

Most of us rely on the spontaneous, magic moments of spark that occur naturally in the first flush of attraction. However, this spark can be consciously learned, generated and increased.

You will be taught the principles of attraction and participate in exercises that deepen and create skillful erotic play through touch, sound, talk and the expression of “flavors”, from light to dark.

In longer immersions we deepen these explorations further and immerse in experiences of powerful Tantric engagement both in exercises and personalized assignments. Each workshop is designed to incorporate learning and experience. We offer opportunities to ask questions and receive personalized attention.

All of our intimacy events welcome both men and women, singles and couples and all sexual orientations. We strive to ensure equal numbers of practice partners in the workshops for cohesive practice forms.

If you are attending by yourself, you will be relating with many individuals for the sake of practice. If you are attending with a partner you have the choice of remaining paired for the duration of the event.

There is no nudity, nor explicit sexual touching in any of our workshops. We are dedicated to the highest degree of safety and clarity for all workshop participants.

Extremely powerful

Lineage and liberation is extremely powerful – since your teachings last weekend I have been in direct contact with a person I cleared on Sunday, I have set new and very strong boundaries with an energy vampire friend, and my boundaries and self respect in my intimate relationship have escalated phenomenally.
