Join this ever-deepening community
of women bonding in
sacred heart space.
Open your heart and embody your soul.
Deep changes ensue.
Six powerful and transformative weekends practicing
ancient arts of intimacy and passion in an on-going, ever-deepening
group. Enjoy the delights of energy-moving breathwork, imagery,
movement, and of improving your body image. Awaken your
sensuality through sexual healing, sacred temple dancing,
and erotic massage.
Women couples broaden their range of connecting, work through
power struggles, clear stuck places, and revitalize romance.
Single women and women with partners that are not present
become more self-loving, open to higher levels of relationship,
and safely fulfill their sensual and erotic needs. Together,
we celebrate ourselves in deeply fulfilling, heart-centered
an on-going group?
An on-going group offers the continuity of contact that
helps you integrate these tools from many spiritual paths
into your life, a process that takes time. Solid, sustainable
growth comes from using the practices regularly, so we recommend
daily and weekly practice. Women meet outside the workshop
to breathe together and explore sacred, sensual exchanges
within safe boundaries.
do we actually do in a Tantra Workshop?
We work in our spacious workshop room enhanced by a vaulted ceiling and a wall of windows looking out upon beautiful gardens. Five Assistants serve to give each woman individual attention to free up and reclaim her body, to learn the undulations that move kundalini, and to work through any emotions that come up. Floor work helps retrain your body to remember these natural movements.
In preparing for deeper exchanges such as in a Puja (a skillfully led spiritual ceremony) we thoughtfully discuss ways to take care of ourselves while respecting and honoring boundaries. We meet in deep presence to practice these romantic and erotic arts together.
"This work has made a huge shift in my life and allowed me to open to a grander love than I have ever experienced."
SATURDAY : For those who stay over night, each day begins with a sumptuous breakfast & time to connect with one another. The days are filled with gracefully led exercises, allowing easy & comfortable contact with new and familiar friends, teaching the fundamentals of Tantra. These skills build upon each other, month after month.
Our evening Puja provides the sweetest, kindest, most nurturing connections you could imagine. Each interaction deepens your connection with yourself and opens possibilities for truly meeting others, "essence to essence".
Women find themselves feeling happy, nourished, fed, honored, accepted, and appreciated, often laughin g with delight, sometimes crying out old wounds, and almost universally ending up feeling satiated and satisfied.
"With Evalena's loving guidance, I broke through emotional
blocks & fully opened to my erotic potential & ecstasy."
SUNDAY: Sunday brings the deep, meditative work of reclaiming our sexuality and our passion, along with sharing our amazing experiences from the Puja. We may do sacred or erotic touch or deeply healing internal work about coming into a loving relationship with our own sexual nature.
Each month we learn more arts for sustaining relationships & romance, some fun & playful, some deeply connecting, & some designed to clear ancient blocks to ecstasy. We complete with exchanges that appreciate & honor all we've risked (and gained), closing with a spiral dance celebrating our love community.
Month by month, we build & deepen friendships & intimacies that enrich our lives now and can last a lifetime.
Guest teachers may share their advanced work and teach erotic dance that makes you simply fall in love with your own body.
Delicious & nourishing meals are served, plus fortifying snacks. Two hot tubs sit in exquisite, private gardens.

attends these workshops:
women have thought this group only for lesbians, but it's
broader than that. Over a third of the women are lesbian,
nearly a third bisexual, a couple mysexual (my sexuality
is my own and I choose who to be sexual with regardless
of gender), and several heterosexual women. About three
fourths are singles and a fourth are couples, tho a few
singles are in relationship with women or men outside the
group. The same spread is true of the assistants.

your passion and your joy!"
