Join us for an experiential immersion into erotic embodiment and connection. Experience ecstatic intimacy and explore the sacred mysteries of erotic friction. In this experiential weekend workshop we will engage into a specific transmission oriented around subtle body practice and the realms of sacred union as a discipline of delight and wonder.

We’ll first engage in a series of practices to sensitize and open both body and heart, resulting in greater feeling capacity and sensitivity towards yourself and others. Once the body and heart are sufficiently relaxed and sensitized, we will dive into the mysteries of erotic friction by engaging with the full spectrum of energetic offerings, from the sublime light to the mysterious dark.

In this workshop you will engage with practices and disciplines of creating ecstatic play in all aspects of your life. Using cutting edge explorations & new practices, we will be inviting not just understanding of these principles, but true embodiment of them.

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.

In this experiential and highly-practical weekend you will be shown the building blocks, practices, and disciplines of creating deeper expressions of your life-force, energy and gifts in the erotic and relational realms.

  • Learn about the somatic principles of creating and deepening erotic embodiment
  • Explore new ways of bringing depth and excitement into your relating
  • Define the kind of relationship and intimacy you are longing for and learn how to create it
  • Explore radical intimacy with self, other, and the raw richness of life in all forms.
  • Go beyond tired dogma around male, female, masculine, and feminine and gain real education and learning that actually works
  • Discover, define, and work with your embodied erotic expression
  • Find your deepest bodily expression and learn how to connect in powerful new ways
  • Practice giving a variety of textures and flavors of love, from sublime light to the mysterious dark


Wonderfully romantic

This weekend was great. It was wonderfully romantic & gave us the opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives to really focus on our connection with each other. We especially loved the custom Saturday night practice given to us!!! Michaela & Steve are great & this workshop is the perfect escape.

The weekend workshop with Michaela was profound

The weekend workshop with Michaela was profound. I wanted to attend the course because I knew that I was disconnected from my body. I could feel how much of my life experience was in my head and I craved the connection to my body as a source of pleasure and power. I wanted to deepen my relationship to my feminine energy because I could feel how depleting it is to be in the more masculine, busy energy of the world.
