Sexual Intelligence

A journey into sacred intimacy

Experiencing a meaningful, accepting and loving connection with our sexuality is one of the essential keys for personal and spiritual growth. As we grow in emotional maturity, we begin to long for a deeper state of presence within ourselves, with our partners and relationships.

This quality of presence can develop by purifying and healing the wounds of conditioning, rejection, shame, traumas and misconceptions that block our sensual, confident and passionate energies.


When we move closer into intimacy, it is natural that our delicacies and emotional wounds come up; what hasn’t been integrated yet in our system comes to the surface to heal. The wounds of humiliation, inadequacy (that something is wrong with me, or I should be different then I am…) or layers of shock that create sexual and emotional dysfunction in men and women, come to the surface. Many times, we create difficulties and challenges within intimate relationships, such as insecurities in setting healthy boundaries, loosing ourselves in dissociation, indifference, pleasing, or neediness, without understanding what is really going on. The good news is we are all inherently hardwired to heal – we have an innate ability to overcome the effects of trauma and unleash the core aliveness we all possess.

When the vital energy flows towards the heart, a bridge of awareness is created that can open qualities such as safety, tenderness and nourishment.

Accessing our sexual intelligence is a path of love, a returning to our very nature.

During these days, we will explore the healing capacity of our bodies’ nervous system to build intimacy in our lives, learning how we can create a foundation for awareness and understanding to blossom within our sexuality.

This process is a bridge between therapy and meditation and supports a healing of the heart and the sensuousness that filters through the body – moving from a state of separation to union with our feelings, emotions and physical presence.

Together we create a safe and loving environment to experiment with new understandings and tools, individually and within the group, opening up our natural joy, aliveness and spontaneity.


These retreats are for people who long to explore themselves through a profound personal process, taking the time and space to explore the collective split between sexuality and the heart. We welcome everyone who wishes to make a movement from a state of separation to union with their feelings, emotions and physical presence and people who wish to reconnect to their spontaneity and sensuousness that filters through their bodies in intimacy.


The energy and love that surrounded the course was certainly the basis for me to show my vulnerabilities, and paradoxically by doing so I immediately gained my strength and a great source of love.

It was not a course in which my mind needed to understand, but a course in which my body felt the clearing of fears and the flow of the energy of love, the love for my life, for my body, for existence.

It was letting go of memories and learning of pain and fear to be able to say YES to experiences of pleasure and joy! Very hard to explain in words. Very much!

Some things cannot be reached by words. This course is one of them!
