Back to the Body
Guiding Women To Explore The Landscape of Their Erotic Soul


Back to the Body

Pamela Madsen is an erotic genius who has created a six-day communal immersion process where women learn to integrate sexual arousal into all parts of their bodies and lives. Along with her extraordinary team; through group and solo practices and receiving the option of complimentary daily sensuous bodywork, participants unleash a remarkable state of sustained sexual arousal. And then are coached in ways to use that state. Back to The Body is the Master Class of my dreams. I wish I had a vulva.
— Joseph Kramer Ph.D., co-creator of Sexological Bodywork and the Body Electric School



What is Back to the Body?

Back to the Body is a sexual wellness immersion experience for women who are ready to create real change in their lives. We put an emphasis on full body healing and sensual touch, expanding your pleasure potential and releasing trauma.


Transformation is nearly impossible through only one session or even once-a-week sessions, without the complete immersion experience. That's why, at Back to the Body, women are whisked away to exotic environments that drench their senses and why they each have the opportunity to receive five complimentary, ninety minute, body work sessions throughout the retreat.


In addition, with only eight to twenty-four women cared for from morning until bedtime by internationally recognized certified somatic sex educators that have been thoroughly vetted by creator Pamela Madsen, plus additional support staff, Back to the Body is able to provide unparalleled holistic care in a safe, nurturing environment.


Each woman receives personalized care from Pamela Madsen and the core staff members throughout the retreat, beginning with pre-retreat get-to-know-you chats via Skype, as well as follow-up support with Pamela Madsen after the retreat.


The women arrive at Back to the Body with hope and a promise—and they are always stunned on how their own bodies deliver on that promise over the course of the retreat’s five or six days.


Back to the Body is a personal journey of feminine empowerment. Our relationship with our sexuality deeply affects all aspects of our lives from our emotional well-being, our ability to create, self-confidence and even our relationship with food.


Up until very recently, hands-on sexual healing has been cloaked in secrecy, shame, and misunderstanding. But a bold new group of courageous pioneers such as Pamela Madsen is leading the way toward a deeper, richer understanding of women’s sexual pleasure as a force for health and healing that positively affects all areas of their lives. The new feminism includes embracing our erotic power, and hands on sexual healing in the right setting can be a very effective way to accomplish this.

Upcoming Retreats for Women


I have attended Pamela’s Back to the Body retreats. She profoundly understands, supports and creates space for women to be their own healers and self-awakeners. The resources, body workers, rituals, education, and beautiful environment of her retreats... combined with her authentic love for women is the magical recipe that truly works. She knows instinctively when a participant needs her own space or ritual to heal and she honors that. She doesn’t subscribe to any scripts nor does she force feed anything to the women. She knows when and how to step in and provide tools/support to help a woman find her way.

Pamela’s belief and trust in a woman’s own ability to heal and empower herself is the foundation from which all her work is built.
