Over the last twenty-five years presenting spiritual sexuality workshops, I’ve been experimenting during my private coaching sessions with certain detailed lessons I’ve given to those who have yet to join me in a workshop and also to graduates to help them integrate their Quodoushka experience. I discovered fascinating ways to streamline teachings and created a remarkable set of experiences that not only are a pleasure to do, they’ve proven to be extremely effective in helping both singles and couples start a whole new chapter of possibility in their intimate lives.
The truth is, most of our intimate difficulties, our inability to connect the way we’d like to, happen because we do not really understand what the other needs. With all good intentions, we often try giving what we like and assume our partner wants the same. The trouble is, our approach, including the things we say or don’t say, the way we listen, or the timing of our touch misses the mark. Like finding keys that open a locked door, Shiva Shakti will give you practical guidance on what to shift in your speech, your eyes, and your touch, as well as why and how to give space to a lover.
I created Shiva Shakti to inspire a revolution in your intimate life – to really enhance what is working and turnaround what is not working for you. My passion is to inspire a benevolent revolution fueled by having greater, self-acceptance, self-confidence and compassion. I want to give both men and woman practical ways to make major changes without blaming or fighting. That’s why all the practices in Shiva Shakti are designed to heal and transform the differences that keep us separate and closed into opportunities to connect on a higher level.

Frequently Asked Questions
One reason we call Shiva Shakti an introduction is because it is
currently a 2 ½ day workshop whereas Quodoushka workshops are 3 ½ or more days.
As in Quodoushka, Shiva Shakti offers a variety of solo, partnered and group exercises. However, in Shiva Shakti workshops we offer a more gradual approach to sacred sexuality, with more emphasis on relationship agreements and conversations as well as the foundational aspects of getting clear about what you need and want in your intimate life. Furthermore, for both singles and couples, Shiva Shakti offers an introduction to Qigong energy practices that increase libido and sexual vitality.
As with all our programs, there is never anything anyone is ever asked to do that they do not choose to do. In fact, much of the emphasis in our programs is to create a safe space to get clear about what you want and what you don’t want, and then having the time to practice expressing this.
Our focus in Shiva Shakti is for personal healing, and for practicing asking for what you need. While there are no exercises in Shiva Shakti that require nudity, or that are sexually explicit, some couples who have been together for many years may have different considerations than others who may be meeting for the first time. Because Shiva Shakti is for both singles and couples, nudity may be a choice for some and may not be a choice for others.
We have a extensive experience and take great care to create a safe, respectful place where we honor each person’s personal choices.
Shiva Shakti is a great way to clear the past and pave the way for new relationships.
It’s also a way to take pride in how far you’ve come and to see where there is still room to learn more about love, sex and intimacy.
For those who are actively dating and to those not so active, Shiva Shakti is the boost of confidence you need to be seen, heard and felt by others who may be in the same place as you. And for those currently dating several people, Shiva Shakti will give you reflections about where you are shining strong and where you need to increase your skills as a friend and lover.
Whether you’ve been together many years or your connection is new, Shiva Shakti offers you a way to devote time for you and your togetherness. The very act of your choosing to take the time for each other in this special way says it all.
At times, Shiva Shakti will be a celebration, a kind of ‘honeymoon’ where you get to see each other differently, and you get to explore practices to connect in new ways. In this way, Shiva Shakti is a chance to give your relationship fresh meaning and purpose, for all the exercises are designed to generate mutual vitality, pleasure and love.
Other times, Shiva Shakti will be a clearing, sweeping the floor for the dust that accumulates in any relationship. It’s a sacred space where understanding, compassion and pleasure has a chance to be expressed.
