Happy Spring!

I am filled with gratitude for the renewal that Spring engenders and the awesome beauty with which it surrounds us, filling our senses with warmth and the promise of endless possibilities. All is well with me. I am still completing the writing of my book, Be the Heroine of Your Own Myth: Living Sexuality from the Inside Out. It is going really well. I am excited by the progress! My editor and I are working closely on the penultimate edits of this extensive project. I am very much looking forward to having it published some time towards the end of the year. While the project has been very demanding it is also very rewarding, affording me great learning opportunities. Thank you for your support and your patience.

In the meantime I have held off on committing to teaching seminars this Spring except for a One Day Workshop for Women, Awakening the Goddess Within: Discovering the Sacred Erotic, which I will be offering as part of a week long retreat called Re-Awakening the Primal Goddess.  This nature retreat is very promising! Although my one day workshop is primarily addressed to women, men who desire to honour the goddess principle are also welcome to participate. See the link above to the retreat poster which will give you further information.

I am still available for Private Tantric Sessions, including massage, for individuals and couples. 

With regard to my work in Bali next winter stay tuned for more information. I would welcome hearing of any interest you may have in participating in any workshop or private sessions in Bali.
