For those who want to feel at home in their heart and body.

You’ve had moments of profound connection, yet it still feels like there’s something more to sex and relationships that you’re missing out on and you don’t know how to get there from here.

Did you know...

That your mind is your biggest sex organ?

Seriously.

It’s how we can feel immense pleasure in one moment, and shame, disinterest or dissociation in the next. And, it’s how we can get stuck in our head and feel totally disconnected from any pleasure at all.

Let's start by recognizing what you're up against.

Perhaps you think sexually liberated is just something you’re supposed to naturally be – and that there’s something wrong with you if you’re not.

It’s easy to feel discouraged if you’re not experiencing the pleasure and connection that you believe you should be, but let’s take a look at the bigger context.

You are seeking meaningful connection:

  • During a pandemic;
  • In a stressed and disconnected world;
  • That learned most of their relationship skills from porn, divorced parents, the media, the church and Hollywood.

This is all to say that your mind is juggling a lot right now.

Due to increased technology, environmental stressors and childhood conditioning, turning on your pleasure sensors is not as going to be easy as the flick of your light switch at night.

But, that’s not to say it can’t be…

I believe that great sex starts within. That is why I am passionate about helping you feel empowered in yourself and your sexuality.

Awakening Self Love helps you feel at home within yourself. This eight-week program includes simple-yet-powerful mindfulness, embodiment and communication tools to help you create a solid foundation within your own being.

By cultivating profound self-love, you will develop as sense of calm and trust within your being (eg. getting out of the fight or flight response of daily life). This allows you to heal trauma, get out of your head, connect with your partner and feel sexual desire again.

What Do I Get From This Program?

Awakening Self-Love is Level One of Three. The entire program is twelve-weeks, with a four night retreat at the end. 

Level One: Awakening Self-Love (8 Weeks):

You may expect to feel:

  • More empowered in your sexuality and relationships;
  • Better at boundary setting and communicating your desires;
  • Feeling more grounded and connected with your partner during sex;
  • Greater self-care;
  • Finding more creativity, pleasure and confidence in your body.

After this Program you may choose to continue to more advanced practices (such as exploring the intersection of sex & spirit).:

Level Two: Awakening Desire (4 Weeks):

  • Discovering your individual anatomy of pleasure;
  • Learning how to increase and expand what feels pleasurable to you;
  • How to communicate your desires with a partner and better understand what feels good to them. 

Level Three: Awakening Sex & Spirit (4 night retreat at Clear Sky Center):

  • Using sexual energy as a doorway to profound healing and connection with the universe.

FAQs

What's Included in the Retreat at Clear Sky?

There is no better place to connect with your true self. The Four-Night retreat at Clear Sky Meditation Center includes:

  • Your own private cabin;
  • Daily sessions in our healing center;
  • Local organic meals served to you;
  • Airport pickup available from Cranbrook Intl. Airport:

Do I Have to Take the Entire Program?

In short, no.

Some may feel satisfied after completing the Foundations package and don’t desire the more advanced practices of energy, sex and spirit.

Perhaps you have already done a lot of foundations work and are just looking to do a Somatic Retreat. This option may be available after careful assessment of your previous experience.

What if I Want Additional Sessions?

Some reasons for additional sessions include:

  • There is a significant emotional or physical trauma that requires greater attention and care;
  • One desires to go deeper on their journey beyond the scope of this program.

Additional sessions are agreed upon by both the client and practitioner at an amount that feels appropriate to both parties.

Will I Be Fully Healed By the End of Your Program?

If you’re asking whether you’ll be a tantric master sex god after twelve weeks, the answer is no.

But, you will feel much more sexually embodied, empowered and joyful.

Sex and relationships are a lifelong exploration, this program simply gives you the tools and map to start that journey well.

Do You Have Sex with your Clients?

No.

How Often Do You Recommend Sessions?

For the most quickest and most consistent progress, I recommend weekly sessions.

Not everyone is able to attend one session a week, in which case, one session every two weeks is fine.

Do Online Sessions Work?

Definitely! Although nothing can fully replace the experience of doing this work live with an experienced practitioner, I have personally experienced that many of these practices allow for powerful transformation through online sessions.

I Still Don't Fully Understand What you Do.

I totally get it! This is a new field and it’s difficult to explain without actually experiencing it for yourself. That’s why I’m happy to have a complimentary online 30-minute consultation to answer any other questions you have.
