Session begins

10am - 12pm


This is a two day intensives are structured in a way that activates energetic bliss in the body first. The focus will be about developing a deep relationship with yourself as the primary step. You do not have to have a partner to attend. Couples are welcome. Men and women of diverse sexual orientations are welcome. These gatherings will be beginner level and will be limited to 7 participants so that we can have a co-creative platform to play, speak and open organically to the mystery where love and sex meet inside ourselves. 

What if every orgasm or climax that you have experienced in your life was a hotline to your highest nature? 

Orgasmia is a state of being which may be cultivated with practice.  Can you feel it coursing through your veins, pumping your life force through your body with each stroke of your experience? 

The French call climax, "the little death." Climax is the end of the story. And life beginning.

The orgasmic state is a natural, altered state of consciousness, when cultivated and explored intentionally attunes us to the frequency of whatever made us. 

Orgasmia is a physical, spiritual, state of being that connects us to our Divinity and our vitality. 

Through physical love-in-the making, we have the opportunity to heal and reconnect with our essential essence fulfilling this ancient edict,”know thyself.”  
I am calling this full vessel sexuality because we fill our energetic wells through sacred technologies that reconnect us to earth energies and build a body and nervous system that is full of generated bliss.

One definition of healing is moving from the path of destruction onto the path of construction. These mini intensives are the beginning of earthing this foundation within yourself through energetic, physical and relational experience. Together, we are pioneering this evolution in sexual consciousness. 

 The intention of these retreats:
1) heal as defined above
2) work with sacred sexual technologies that cultivate the bliss body
3) birth a new language around sexuality and our bodies that is pro-reverent
4) play with sexuality and life force from the deep energetic standpoint
5) explore the power of sexual stories that inspire a new universe and sexual world view 
6) grow our skills as love artists 
7) learn life force mastery and management skills that aid us in maintaining our vitality
8) sexual communication skills from the heart
9) explore how we integrate theses awakenings in our lives with our lovers and beloveds
10) and everything else i have forgotten to include here that will show up as we begin this odyssey.

If you have attended the Sacred Sexuality Intensives with Namae and Candice in the past, there will be in new content and deepening content that we have already explored. Along with Candice's beloved student and co facilitator in training, Michael Allen, Candice's intention of these groups is to create a safe, on going intentional, supportive community of seekers who are committed to birthing a new story where sex, love and intimacy can flourish through us and into our lives.
