Sexuality and Spirituality are two aspects of the same energy. This energy is LIFE and it is Sacred.

Bali, Spring 2023


I am grateful that you are taking a moment of your precious time to visit my site.

I embrace sexuality as a precious gift which deserves our deepest respect.

I am always honored when people entrust me with this most intimate aspect of their lives, their sexual health and well-being.

I am the happiest when sharing my gifts as a sexual educator, teacher, sacred intimacy coach, healer and writer.

I truly enjoy sharing my heart whether as a Tantric Holistic Massage practitioner, or as a teacher of sexual empowerment as well as in my role as intimacy coach for individual or couple.

How about you?

Do you sometimes wish you could change your day-to-day reality to something more… peaceful? Like a serene natural setting or even a cave in the Himalayas? Too far away?  Perhaps you just want to recline, relax and be pampered in a healing, nurturing environment?

What are you seeking? “What you seek is seeking you” said the great mystic Rumi.

Would you like to take your intimacy, into-me-I-see, to the next level ?

Perhaps you feel the need to heal your heart, find emotional and spiritual support through your menopausal transition, enhance your skills in the arts of love, or simply treat yourself to a well-deserved therapeutic massage?

I would be delighted to speak with you and discuss your specific needs and desires. Just call me for a free 20 minutes first consultation. 250-884-2084

May You Be Free, May You Be at Peace, May You Be Happy!

genieMaryse’s Upcoming E-Books:

Book 1. Becoming Multi-Orgasmic, 7 Keys to Unlocking your Female Erotic Power Fall 2024

Book 2. The Pelvic Power Program, 2025

Book 3. Be the Heroine of Your Own Myth; Women and Sexual Healing, (to be announced).

The first book is currently being edited prior to publication outlines the journey of recovering and employing the power of the erotic to empower women with the recognition that the pleasure, the passion and the sensuality inherent in our bodies are authentic sources of genuine spiritual knowledge and wisdom.

Once the myths which have enslaved women in self-denial, shame and blame have been offered up to the altar of our authentic self, ancient secrets are revealed allowing the heroine within us to become transparent. In the words of Joseph Campbell, we make ourselves “transparent for transcendence.” To transcend means to expand beyond the confines of our ordinary human experience. That is precisely what the power of the erotic reveals as it empowers the elevation of our energetic state, allowing us to transcend the ordinary; to taste, to savour and fully embody the sacred erotic. When we tap into our inherent source of energetic and erotic power we cannot help but become the magnetically attractive, radiant woman that we are.

Taoism speaks of the supremacy of women’s sexual power. It likens women to water and men to fire, viewing women to have dominance in sexuality and constitution over men, as water can dominate fire. Rediscovering this power has enabled me to transform my own previously disempowering myths, allowing my inner heroine to shine radiantly through the old façade, assisting me to enable others to embark upon similar journeys. Assisting women to recall their own personal source of erotic power has become my life’s mission and my life’s joy.

Books 2 and 3 ask you to examine the nature of this erotic power and to explore what may be blocking your access to it. It considers how the sexual/spiritual components of this power may be awakened, transformed and sustained so that you may benefit physically, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually.

This book collection will help you to explore the nature of this erotic power, to examine what may be preventing your birthright to it,  and to celebrate its magnificence!

Stay tuned!!
