Announcing: Private Woman’s Retreat
At my home studio by the sea, in Sooke, BC
A private retreat is a perfect time for:
- Relaxing and being pampered.
- Cultivating renewal of energy, creativity and deeper wisdom.
- Taking care of ourselves through significant life’s transition.
- Healing and maintaining physical, emotional and spiritual health.
- Challenging the prevalent myths surrounding menopause and the cliché of the asexual aging woman.
- Seeking life’s direction and spiritual guidance.
Private Retreats and Sessions for Individual Women or Same Sex Couples
These retreats can unfold over one day, a weekend or a whole week.
The retreat concept can apply to anyone needing to take time out whether alone or with a partner. It can be a perfect time for self-exploration and for being pampered. It can be a wonderful gift to yourself: A Female Tantric Orgasmic Journey.
For some women the focus of the retreat is more on healing. Maryse will create a safe space for you to go deeper into your healing process while helping to integrate some of the deep transformational work which can take place during the sessions.
After the initial conversation on the phone, I will suggest a particular program according to your specific needs, including a combination of the different aspects of my work as I describe below.
We work in sessions of 3-4 hours with sufficient time between the sessions to enjoy nature walks, for meditation by the ocean, resting and giving yourself self-nurturing time.
Our work together will take place at my home studio in picturesque Sooke, BC, Canada, or else in tropical settings such as Mexico or Bali, generally between December and March. For retreats in Sooke, accomodation is included. As for tropical retreats since everyone has different requirements when it comes to places to stay I recommend that you go online and find a hotel or a B&B which best suit your preferences. Sooke is located on Vancouver Island off the west coast of British Columbia. It is world- renowned for its magnificent natural surroundings. As is Bali, “ the island of the Gods”.

Celebrate Women’s Sexual Empowerment
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, menopause was known as Second Spring, acknowledging a renewal of energy, creativity, and deeper wisdom. In many traditional cultures, women do not experience the “secondary” menopausal symptoms which eighty percent of us in our Western culture endure. What is their secret? How can we avail ourselves of it? Or better yet how do we find our own secrets of rejuvenation, longevity, sexual satisfaction and feminine wisdom?
Since menopause occurs at the median age of fifty-two, there are still thirty to forty years ahead of us which may potentially become our most fulfilling and sexually satisfying years. Science has irrefutably demonstrated that our thoughts affect every cell and hormonal secretion within our body, therefore our perception of being menopausal has a crucial effect upon our sexual functioning.
Tantric Yoga teaches how to circulate kundalini (sacred sexual energy) throughout our chakras (energy centers) employing techniques of breath, movement, meditation, visualization, and sound. Tantric Yoga aims at the union of the yin (feminine) and the yang (masculine) within us. Kundalini is our life force which seeks to be released in a healthy and balanced way. When it is not, imbalances cause blockages and dysfunctions in our body and mind. Unresolved issues centered in our first and second chakras often manifest as PMS, menstrual cramps, pelvic floor disorders which may include difficulty in experiencing full sexual cycles or orgasms, along with secondary menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, and depression. Blockages in these chakras often mean rejection of our feminine self. Understanding the beliefs which are at the cause of these female imbalances will help transform them, allowing us to re-establish health and harmony in our lives.
Once you have selected your special package we can determine the time of the day for your therapeutic massage as well as schedule additional sessions. As for the rest of the day, it is up to you to enjoy this natural sanctuary as you feel so inclined.
When you stay here as my guest you also share my living room with a spectacular view over the water. You may recline and relax and let yourself soak in this most serene atmosphere. Read a book, write in your journal, go for a walk on the Whiffin Spit nearby or casually prepare your meal in the fully equipped kitchen. During the warm seasons, you may take your coffee outside and sit on “the throne”, watching the boats and perhaps, if you are lucky, spot an eagle. They make a nest nearby each year.
