EXPAND UNDERSTANDING OF YOUR DESIRE, AROUSAL, AND PLEASURE POTENTIAL
Most of us have received little to no sexual education, or a roadmap to having great sex and deeper intimacy with ourselves and partners. Great sex, relationships, and intimacy take ongoing practice, tools, and collaboration. There is no better time than now to take hold of your sexual journey and discover new and incredible ways of expanding your pleasure potential.
This one-of-a-kind experience is a two-day retreat designed to enhance pleasure and intimacy in your life. The Pleasure Connection takes a mind, body, and spirit approach to pleasure. Lessons will be interactive and collaborative and will include demos, writing, drawing, breathing, processing, sensing, practicing, and exploring. There is a limited capacity of 20 attendees in order to ensure personalized attention and comfort.
Hosted by top therapist, sexologist, and educator Nicoletta Heidegger (Staying on Top Media, LLC), MA, MEd, and internationally renowned yoga, meditation and breath work teacher, behavioral therapist, and multi-modality healer Lisa Reider (Genius Loci).
(*note this retreat is not therapy or a replacement for therapy. While we want you to take the tools home and practice practice practice, our event will have no nudity or direct sexual stimulation** )
WHO CAN BENEFIT?
Individuals, couples, and more-somes are welcome. This retreat is designed for persons wishing to enhance pleasure in the bedroom and beyond. It is specifically designed for folks who are struggling to start (or restart) the conversation around intimacy and desire; no experience is required- just willingness for more pleasure.
A MESSAGE FROM YOUR FACILITATORS:
We wanted to create a safe container where learning and talking about sex is encouraged. In our respective fields, we see so many clients who are not having the kind of sex they want to be having and are unsure where to start. We know it can be intimidating to attend an event to improve your sex life, and we strongly feel that pleasure is a human right.
