Intimacy starts with our connection to ourselves, via our feeling body. Our bodily genius holds the secrets of intimate perception and deep connection. As we become more sensitive to the signals of our body we become more aware of others and true connections can begin. From here there are endless means of artfully deepening and enlivening these connections through communication, touch, and gaze.
In this interactive event we will engage in processes and exercises to sensitize the body in relationship to another, and explore ways to deepen into an understanding of the principles of intimacy. Brought alive through erotic friction, intimacy can be an eternal dance of bliss, ecstasy, awakening, and love. It can be given as an offering, an art, that enlivens your relationship and the lives of those around you.
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. Please register early, we aim to ensure participant balance.
This practice weekend will focus on the cultivation of intimacy, embodied expression and erotic attraction through your body. This experiential event engages you in practices that you can apply in your life right away.

Michaela and Steve facilitate the safest of containers with grace, humor and a vast knowledge base. Both eye and heart opening, their workshop allowed me to sink into myself, unpacking layers. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to explore what intimacy means to them, both solo and in partnership.
Michaela brings an unmatched depth of knowledge, intuition, and experience into the practice room. This workshop deepened my relationship with ecstasy. It’s a rare opportunity to access teachings of such authenticity that, while esoteric at their core, are grounded in practical applicability. This is a workshop I would definitely do again and again.
Understanding the practices that underpin erotic friction & how to cultivate polarity in a workshop setting was incredibly valuable. Michaela & Steve are wonderful teachers and so incredibly supportive.
Their material is very accessible for everyone, at any stage of their practice with the material. Their teaching style is impeccable and allow for the participants to deepen their experience in a safe space. Whether the event is a couple of hours, a day or a week long, I get so much out of it for my personal growth. I HIGHLY recommend giving ANY of their workshops a try!
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.
