Sensual Alchemy Harness your sexual energy to create and heal through tantric breathing, meditation, sensual movement, inner inquiry, and ritual magic.
Sacred Sound Journey This is a guided exploration deep into the self. Using various instruments including singing bowls, percussion, the Monolina and my voice, I guide you into a deep state of relaxation where you can tune in to your own healing frequency and connect to your essential core. Therapeutic sound can calm the mind, reduce stress, and improve the regulation of our nervous system and help access our creativity.
Orgasmic Painting is an embodied, creative painting experience with invitations to deepen your own spiritual practice. What's inside of you that wants to be awakened and expressed? Drop into your heart through a moving meditation and connection. Play with all the colors of the rainbow and beyond and express what is alive for you on canvas.
