Sacred Union

A couples retreat to deepen your connection, indulge in intimacy practices and expand your capacity for pleasure
August 5th - 9th

Come join us at a gorgeous mansion in West Vancouver, Canada for an intimate escape for you and your beloved. Relieve yourselves of the daily responsibilities of adult life and come together in deep connection, intimacy and shared pleasure at this 5 day retreat.

 

As sexologists, we see it all the time! Lovers who desire deeper connection, but don’t have the time or tools to expand the intimacy experienced in their relationship.

Life gets busy and pleasure is usually the first thing to go. As the result of fulfilling your daily obligations and “adulting” at such a high level, your love life takes the back seat! Not anymore.

 

The Sacred Union couples retreat is an invitation to hit pause and explore sexuality in a way that can’t be explored within limited windows of time at home. You will leave with new and sustainable intimacy practices that you can easily integrate in your day-to-day life…and you will renew the source of your love.

Many of us search for great love our whole lives, and when it arrives, we forget to prioritize it! After this retreat your love will be renewed, your body’s open, and your sexual fire ignited!

The Path of Beauty: 

 

This workshop is for ALL lovers. Those exploring, those deeply committed, those who have deep love but haven’t had time in years to rediscover one another.

 

For those who are yearning for a space to be intentional with their eroticism in a healthy, deep, sacred and also educational space to experience new landscapes and possibilities with another. 

 

What It is not:

 

It is NOT a place to worry about your body shape or if you are too old/too queer/too new/too married/ TOO ANYTHING. We celebreate LOVE and the deepening of love. You are welcome at the retreat as you are. Varying identities, shapes, sizes, lengths of experience together, couples, thruples and all kinds of diversity in partnership are DEEPLY enriching for everyone who takes part! Thank you in advance for contributing your beauty and spirit to our collective journey. 

 

All Genders, ages and orientations welcome; we will provide for you in our schedule! 

Are you ready to rejuvenate in a sacred retreat setting and leave feeling abundant, worthy and deliciously nourished? Spaces are limited.
