Please let me know, if you want to take part: 0405 701 707 – spaces are limited to 15 participants.

Here is Sharon’s Message:

Several years ago when I met Nathalie and Chris in Greece and the dream to bring Sacred Loving to Oz was hatched, it was hard to imagine the day when this trip would be just around the corner.

Well, here we are, less than a month away and I am feeling the excitement and anticipation of sharing something that is so dear to my heart with sweet hearts on the other side of the globe.

A few weeks ago Kenneth and I were in the midst of a Sacred Loving weekend when one particular moment astonished me with sweetness. I looked around the circle at the couples who were attending the weekend.   One couple had only been together six weeks; they wanted Sacred Loving to be part of the foundation of their relationship. Another couple had been married 35 years and desired to re-invent their relationship now that their nest was empty. And there were several couples with young kiddos who were longing to re-ignite the connection and passion that disappeared after their kids arrived.  There were couples in their 60’s and couple’s in their 20’s.  Nine very diverse couples all gathering to explore ways to love, and be loved, more deeply.   And in that moment I was overwhelmed with the honor and joy of not only holding the space for these couples to explore deeper loving; but also, with the desire to share this experience with as many couple’s as possible when we are in Byron Bay and Sydney.

During the ten years that Kenneth and I have offered Sacred Loving we have been blessed that these workshops have filled up through word-of-mouth; friends telling friends.  Since this will be the first time we are bringing Sacred Loving to Australia we don’t have the luxury of word spreading from past participants to their circles of friends.

With that in mind, Kenneth and I would like to make ourselves more available to you.  If any of the information Nathalie or Tanya have shared with you has tickled your interest we’d love to answer your questions or get you any information you’d need before deciding if the Sacred Loving workshop is a match for you.   We’d be glad to meet you via Skype or answer any questions you have through email.

In the craziness of the financial challenges many of us are facing it can be a stretch to make an investment in something you don’t know too much about.    With that in mind we’ve come up with an offer that we hope will entice more of you to join us in either Byron Bay or Sydney.

Here’s our offer: register and pay the workshop deposit of $200 by the early registration deadline. At the end of the Sacred Loving weekend make another payment depending on the value you received and what you can afford.  If you have a longing to deepen your relationship and you’re curious about what Sacred Loving could hold for you, we don’t want finances to be the reason you don’t come play with us.

Tantra.  That word has been used in so many ways that the true essence of tantra is often misunderstood.    Goggle “tantra” and you will find dozens of definitions and different expressions.  Today when someone hears the word “Tantra” what might come to mind is wild sexual positions that look extremely dangerous; to partner swapping and group sex; to workshops where naked participants chant their way to orgasms.

When I talk about MY practice of tantra I am referring to my journey into a fully enlivened life where every aspect of life is welcomed in sacredness; where every part of life can bring me more fully into my authentic life expression; that includes awakening and embracing my sexuality, along with every other part of myself.    As Rumi says  “Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about.”

Because “tantra” has so many different associations, (and most of those associations have nothing to do with the workshop we lead)    Kenneth and I began calling our workshop “Sacred Loving” with the desire to capture the deep essence of what our weekend workshop offers; an invitation, through experiences, practices, ritual and discussion, that brings the quality of  sacredness into all part of life.

In the Sacred Loving workshop the group co-creates a safe space to explore relationship, love and sexuality. We explore the depths of these subjects with simple experiences where everyone is invited to participate within their own comfort level.  It might surprise you  that most of the practices we offer during the weekend you can share with your kids; but when you bring these same practices into the bedroom your love connection and passion will be ignited, expanded and deepened…. And, in case you are wondering, there is no nudity during the workshop.

Each evening we offer you some special exercises to do in the privacy of your home or hotel room.  So, we invite you to set the entire weekend aside and dedicate your evenings to these powerful homeplay exercises.

The Sacred Loving weekend is a rich journey of connection and intimacy where we learn to return to the joy of loving each other. I can promise that what you will bring away from this workshop will not only add more juiciness, passion and connection to your relationship;  but all parts of your life will be enlivened and blessed by your practice of Sacred Loving.  We hope to see you there.

With love,
Sharon
