Cultivating Ecstatic Intimacy Retreat

Do you ever feel like something is missing in your relationships? But can’t quite put your finger on what it is, or how to remedy it?

Do you hear a whisper from deep inside, a part of you that is longing for more? More love, more depth, more intimacy!

Cultivating Ecstatic Intimacy will provide you with answers to these questions and empower you to confidently cultivate the quality of love, sex and intimacy that you desire. During an expansive 7 days, you will explore the bliss that exists in cultivating intimacy.

During this retreat, you will be guided to explore and acquire the skills necessary to cultivate deep intimacy.

For men – you will learn how to embody the presence, sensitivity and depth to hold your partner in loving openness and inspire her to love you in the ways you have always wanted.

For women – you will learn how to embody the love, sensuality and expression that will evoke your partners loving devotion, and inspire him to hold you in all the ways you ache to be held!

Imagine having 7 days where you can explore ALL of this and more!

Each day, you will be guided through embodiment practices that will support you to:

*Identify long held patterns that limit your desires and expression

*Heal past tensions and trauma that hold you back from creating the love, sex, intimacy and relationships you really want

*Identify and release patterns of self sabotage

*Overcome emotional and sexual disconnect

*Learn how you can be an active participant in receiving the love you desire

*Learn how to give and RECEIVE the love you intuitively know can exist in a relationship

*Cultivate more energy and more stillness in your body and your life

*Connect to the abundance of sexual energy, vitality and love that IS who you are!

*AND of course cultivating deep, ecstatic, INTIMACY!!

From the moment we walked into the summer house we were absolutely blown away by its beauty. Where ever you looked the house was stunningly designed, decorated and felt so relaxing. The view of the ocean is magnificent. The beds so comfy and snuggly and hard to get out of. The house is filled with everything you might need for a nice trip away- right down the the beautiful body wash and shampoos. We spent 3 nights here for a girls weekend and highly recommend it. We also added the platter, massages and wine tour- which were all fantastic. We are leaving feeling very relaxed, spoilt and a little sad to be going back to reality. Thanks summer house.read more
