The ancient peoples understood it takes a community of trained priests and priestesses to support the process of opening one’s sexuality and learn the arts of sacred love-making. They peopled their temples with dakas and dakinis (sexual healers).

Our non-residential community includes people who have long studied Tantra and give of their time for the beauty of assisting others to open. Many are trained in bodywork, therapy or healing and are able to deeply support you in dropping old wounds and held emotions.
