See Introductory Video

This is a unique and amazing kind of slow and penetrating touch on the pelvic area, which most people have never experienced.  
This work draws from the techniques of sacred spot massage, Orgasmic Meditation, cranial sacral work, facia release, Rivers of Love bodywork, Taoist energy healing and cultivation, and deep tissue and acupressure bodywork.
It is relaxing, nurturing, healing and pleasurable all at once. Treat yourself!
This is very deep work that touches into our core channel energiesand can bring up strong emotions and be very transformative.  
It is wonderful for healing any issues around sexuality, shame, body image and for expanding our capacity for aliveness, pleasure, juiciness and full body orgasms. 
Opportunities to learn this work are rare, and usually costs for trainings are much higher. We believe these are such important and needed skills that we keep the costs low enough to be accessible.

Newcomers will get a strong start, and we recommend you have some experience with massage and sacred sexuality, as this is a training in a detailed and specific healing form of sacred spot massage.

People with experience in intimate massage and conscious touch will find this a powerful deepening, as we will teach Sacred Pelvic Healing Massage which can be applied to personal or professional sessions.

These practices can help to let go of our tensions, feel nourished, and to experience peace, silence and the presence of our Being.

Weekend includes:
• Secrets of Your Erotic Body slideshow
• Movement and embodiment practices
• Group sharing
• Sacred Pelvic Healing Massage Training

Also an optional 2 day Apprentice Training practice time Nov 6-7, for those wanting extra practice while the Apprentices teach

Weekend Activities

Secrets of Your Erotic Body

The  Anatomy and Energy of Arousal

Reclaim your pride and enjoyment of your own sexual organs in this slideshow. Come learn some amazing facts, Taoist breathing and energy practices for sexual health, and bring your questions and experiences to share.

We will explore:
*Pelvic Breathing & stretching- Bringing aliveness to the pelvic area for more health and extending sexual pleasure
* Exploring our own experiences and attitudes toward our sexual areas
* The amazing and complex structure of our genital organs
* Taoist reflexology zones hidden in them, used for health and vitality

Sacred Pelvic Healing Massage

        The focus for this event is to create a warm, loving and safe space for exploring sexual healing and pelvic release massage in an experiential way.  We will also be dancing, doing various meditations and practices in pairs and solo, and spending about 2/3 of the time just doing massage in pairs.
        This is very deep work that touches into our core channel energies, and can bring up strong emotions and be very transformative.  It is wonderful for healing any issues around sexuality, body image and for expanding our capacity for aliveness, pleasure, juiciness and full body orgasms.

The simple act of sharing loving touch is a deeply powerful practice that most of us would like to have more often.  The pelvic area holds a huge amount of tensions and emotional charge, yet it is usually never touched except within the context of sexual stimulation.  Many of us have experienced trauma and emotional pain around our sexuality because of the context of our sex-negative culture.

Self Responsibility

We bring awareness and nourish aspects emphasizing self-responsibility as an essential requirement to navigate sexual, shamanic, and spiritual spaces.

This training is NOT a replacement for physical-emotional-mental therapy and is NOT focused on treating pathology.

If you suffer from severe trauma, mental illness, or are taking medications, we recommend you consult your therapist/ psychiatrist to check if participating is advisable.

The training activates the life force and is, at times, emotionally intense. There will be group nudity. All activities are optional and by consent.

Please consider if your mental health is ready and capable of undertaking such powerful initiations and if you can take responsibility for your mental stability.

On that basis, the facilitator acknowledges and recognizes my responsibility to offer participants nondiscriminatory care, a consent-focused space, and appropriate support concerning the process as you navigate the training.

COVID Safety

We will be taking steps to insure all of our safety, including requiring 5 days of relative self seclusion beforehand and refraining from risky practices. We will not be testing unless needed during the event.

"Amara is a truly wonderful teacher!  I've taken multiple workshops with her, and I'm always amazed at the humor, excellence, and heart that she offers her students.  I feel more empowered with education about the sexual body, and I emphatically recommend learning from this gifted teacher!"
