Women's Intimacy, Desire and Eroticism: The Triumvirate of Sexual Pleasure

May 19 - 21, 2017 Begins in 2 months
with Alexandra Katehakis

Do you know the difference between intimacy, desire, and eroticism? Do you find yourself churning through lovers because your sexual desire drops off over time? This in-depth workshop for women will assist in revealing the answers to these questions, which reside in past sexual experiences and in sexual fantasies. When we deconstruct shameful family of origin and cultural messages about what “good girls” do and don’t do sexually, we can honestly admit our most ardent sexual desires to ourselves.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.


A global network of seekers devoted to the belief that we are all capable of the extraordinary.
