"Female sexual pleasure, rightly understood, is not just about sexuality or just about pleasure. It serves also, as a medium of female knowledge, and hopefulness; female creativity and courage; female focus and initiative; female bliss and transcendence; and as medium of a sensibility that feels very much like freedom. To understand the vagina properly is to realize that it is not only coexistence with the female brain, but is also, essentially, a part of the female soul."

When the retreat ended I began to realize how intrinsically changed I was…down to a cellular level.

This is what I wanted: to be me, to be pampered, to feel loved and to know I could ask for what made sense in the senseless moment.

I feel like I can have all of these things I couldn’t have before.

Pamela, it is your walking your talk, your vulnerability and your loving heart that make this work for me, that creates this safe space.

Working with Will was phenomenal. I felt like he really keyed into my needs.

I have been home from Back to the Body for one week and I am still marinating in its richness and depth, and missing my new friends, with whom so much sharing was exchanged.

I have learned more about my body in the past five days than I have in my entire life.

“Ron, You truly are an amazing ‘yoga’ instructor, your care and your awareness truly fed the love of movement I have in my body. I loved your sharing and openness.”— Laurie, Back to The Body Participant.

I thought it could never happen.

Thank you. Thank you.
