Couples workshops are for partners who seek to realize the full fire of their erotic potential together. The emphasis is on how to bring the Tantric quality of celebration into daily life together, and how to learn to meet your partner at every level — sex, heart and spirit — honouring in each other a unique incarnation of Shakti and Shiva, the Goddess and the Green Man. Our main Couples’ programme consists at present of a number of weekends, a Couples’ Training called Sex, Heart & Spirit, and an 8-day holiday workshop in one of the more remote areas in Crete.
Traditionally, (i.e. for at least 2,000 years or so!) Tantra was taught in small, intimate groups. We follow this tradition. Our current Couples’ workshops at our home in Devon are for a maximum of 5 couples.
As well as working with small groups, we offer individual and couple counselling sessions, including Pelvic Heart work when appropriate. When we work individually with a couple, we usually take on couples that have already had at least one workshop with us, but we will on occasion break this general rule if it seems best to do so. Our work is gentle, but at times quite intense, and we encourage an atmosphere of confidentiality, trust, sensitivity and mutual respect.
To our bodies turn we then, that so Weak men on Love revealed may look: Love's mysteries in Souls do grow, -- But yet the Body is his Book. -- John Donne

An ideal first weekend, offering a deliciously experiential introduction to practical ways of bringing tantra into your life, as well as including glimpses into of some of the essential fundamentals of Tantra. The work focuses strongly on the discoveries you make together. Touch is a very direct way of meeting your partner freshly, in the body. Throughout the weekend, you work exclusively with your partner for any intimate work. Though this workshop is designed to be suitable for couples who are new to Tantra, many of our clients find it is worth revisiting again, further along in their tantric journey together. The workshop includes structures for you to take home and explore further after the weekend is over.
