About this Event

Women, have you found yourself at some point questioning:

  • How can I increase my own libido?
  • Is there more to feel and experience sexually?
  • Could I have more orgasms?
  • What do other women experience in their sex lives?
  • Am I sexually "normal"?
  • How do I ask my partner for what I want sexually?
  • How can I connect deeper with my partner?
  • How can I learn to love what I see when I look in the mirror?
  • Has menopause changed my sexuality?
  • Is using sex toys a bad idea? Will they steal my sensitivity?

We are going to spend this time together where we create a very safe environment welcoming your tears, laughter, challenges and playfulness. In every moment you are always at choice. When women get together with open hearts, something so magical and profound happens and we become teachers for each other.

We are going to experience the gift of women nurturing each other on all levels: eating together, cuddling, deeply sharing with each other, holding each other hearts and supporting.

Hot tub and swimming pool

During the breaks you will have an opportunity to soak in the hot tub and enjoy the pool. The workshop is closing optional. You are at choice to bring a swimming suit or not. There is something very powerful happens in the process of removing shame from our bodies, to celebrate them in all forms and shapes and to let them be naked in a non sexual setting. Just like little children playing in the ground naked with such ease and fun.

This is what participants have said about the workshop.

  • I went into the "All about pleasure for Women" weekend with hesitation in that I saw myself an older, heavier lesbian and felt quite self conscious about it. I wondered if there would be other queer folks or, would my queerness "other" me in this retreat? I discovered that it doesn't matter who or even how we love. The women identified in all sorts of ways. Our intersection is within the profound need to remember self love. A sisterhood of women-identified humans holding and supporting each other. We were reminded or perhaps, for the first time being taught how to love our own bodies, yoni's and desires. I cannot emphasize enough how beautifully facilitated this workshop was. I entered the weekend with trepidation about my sensual and sexual future and exited ecstatic, vulnerable and feeling sexier than I have in years. I highly recommend this workshop for women seeking to remember or awaken. – KL
  • The feeling of genuine connectedness and immediate comfort among the women was a direct influence of Sarah’s brilliant teaching and honest, real loving. She put everyone at ease and in joy just by letting herself shine. She smoothly and seamless transitioned and moved us through the weekend’s journey. She captured and enlivened everyone’s essence. Smashing!! - Michele N
  • I loved the workshop. Thank you for leading it with such sensitivity and humor! I feel as though a side of my life has opened up. It’s the same life, but there’s a forgotten window newly open with light streaming through. – CH
  • I surrendered sufficiently, that a couple more layers peeled off during this women’s workshop. I almost didn’t come. I would have certainly short-changed myself and the life I can now embrace with power! – JB
  • For me the women’s workshop was the most transformational experience that I have had in any workshop. I’ve come to a level of acceptance around my body and my sexuality (post breast cancer) that I could not have imagined possible! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Sarah. - HO
  • What’s true for me after this wonderful workshop is that my connections with women deepened to a much greater level that, for the first time in my life, I felt truly at home and relaxed with my sisters. - RM
  • Sarah created a container in which I felt so very comfortable and safe and seen. She sculpted a womb for us to grow and birth ourselves. She genuinely cared for and honored all of us. She deeply believed in the intrinsic value of each of us. Her style was fun-loving, down-to-earth, real, and from the heart. She struck the balance between using the structure of the workshop as a guide, and going with the organic flow of the group. She also balanced well the role of facilitator and being transparent. As someone who facilitates groups, I felt very inspired. - AB
