The Opening is a newly created opportunity for women who have never attended a Back to the Body Retreat and are curious about the possibilities.

This brand new special immersion retreat is also a wonderful way for women who have attended a Back to the Body Retreat to stay connected and hone their tools between retreats. The Opening has been created for all women who are seeking a way to simply begin their pilgrimage or stay connected to their journey. 

This immersion retreat (our first on the east coast) is different than our core programs in other locations, and allows women who are holding curiosity in their bodies about what somatic sex education can offer to participate more easily.

This is an opportunity to actually begin and feel this work rather than just talk about it.  The Opening is about making "Someday" a real possibility.

We believe that the secret sauce is in touch and immersion. Join us for four days and nights in upstate NY beginning on April 5th through April 8th in a rustic and comfortable venue as we join hands to meet ourselves in the deepest of levels.
