Sensuous Retreats For Women


"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."
Naomi Wolf 


Few of us ever take the time to get in touch with our bodies & our sexuality. And there are few retreats with the expertise, love and safety that we need to take such a vulnerable journey. But without this journey it’s almost impossible to live the kind of sexy empowered life we want.

"Within the Sexological Bodywork frame, we can consciously explore the healing that can take place when working with sensual and erotic energies combined with massage, yoga and movement – with our eyes wide open and our bodies strong and full of breath.

Regardless of how we identify ourselves, we live in a culture which does not celebrate sexuality. From puberty, we are discouraged from exploring, at which time very little is discussed regarding sex, how, what, why and health: mental or physical. Many of us stumble along, making it up as we go.

Back to The Body creates an opportunity to revisit with curiosity our god given right to be erotic playful and loving. The environment of Back to The Body is of acceptance and celebration of our whole being, sensual and complete. All of us."
