This retreat is about you and your relationship.
It's about discovering, noticing, trusting, valuing, and communicating genuine desires, needs, and wants.
It's about celebrating choice, using your voice, and becoming a master at deeply honoring you and your partner's desires in ways you may have never imagined:
The Pleasure Keys Retreat is not really about sex, per se. And though we'll use non-sexual touch and intimacy practice, it's also not really about touch. But everything you learn during this weekend will inform your sex life as well as every other area of your life.
All of your relationships will benefit, romantic or otherwise.
More than anything this retreat is about choice, voice, and cultivating the skills to masterfully navigating differences in desire so that you can get on the same page and experience mutual fulfillment for the long term.
Your relationship is mostly awesome.
You've been together for a long time and are curious to learn new ways to deepen the connection and explore new realms of your intimate relationship.
You are adventurers and lifelong learners who know the importance of investing in your relationship for long term satisfaction, joy and love.
You're interested in expanding the horizons, learning new approaches that can enhance the already amazing intimate relationship you have.
If this is you, The Pleasure Keys retreat will be a breath of fresh air, a new adventure, and a solid set of skills that will empower you to deepen and heighten what you've already got for a lifetime.
Your relationship is mostly awesome. You love each other very much and have been together for awhile.
But when it comes to finding mutual fulfillment and navigating differences in desire you feel like you're always hitting roadblocks.
The frustration and resentment has reached it's limit.
The issue is taking up a lot of mental space now, incessantly dominating your thoughts throughout the day, seeping into your life as you lie awake at night stewing behind that wall of resentment that just seems to be getting thicker brick by brick with each passing day:
And secretly you're both thinking....
"Maybe we just aren't compatible."
If you resonate with the above scenario you are not alone. Almost every couple I meet experiences some version of the above frustration in sex and intimacy. That's because nobody ever actually taught us about PLEASURE.
Nobody actually taught us exactly HOW pleasure is dependent on 3 critical factors being present in every interaction.
Nobody told us that without these 3 keys we are forever doomed to an intimate life of pleasing and appeasing, hitting endless roadblocks in libido levels, and what seems like a never ending cycle of being the rejector or the rejected.
But it's NOT that you are sexually incompatible. You and your partner are likely very compatible in many ways, including sexually, or you wouldn't be together.
I feel your pain. And I am here to tell you that it doesn't have to be this way!
This is why I created The Pleasure Keys tm Retreat for Couples.
This is a very solvable problem! The Pleasure Keys Retreat for Couples is the solution.
Through a simple and easy to understand framework that includes non-sexual touch practices coupled with experiential non-sexual intimacy practices, The Pleasure Keys equip you with deep experiential learning so that you can resolve the obstacles to mutual pleasure and enjoyment.
By learning the Pleasure Keys in this experiential weekend immersion retreat format, you'll celebrate as the frustration, confusion, resentment and guilt are replaced with curiosity, excitement, pleasure, and deep connection.
And the best part is that what you'll learn and experience during the Pleasure Keys retreat is repeatable! You'll be able to take what you learn in the weekend and continue to expand and deepen the skills in your relationship for the long term.
This retreat is for couples who:
This retreat is NOT for couples who:
After attending the Pleasure Keys Retreat You'll Be Able To:
The Pleasure Keys Retreat for Couples Level 1 does NOT include any sexual touching or nudity. All of the activities and practices are done fully clothed and you'll be working with your partner for the entire weekend.
The Pleasure Keys Retreat for Couples will be fun and playful but is NOT just a fluffy "feel good" experience. Working directly with the body and encountering the obstacles we have to pleasure, requires dedication and effort to show up fully and vulnerably. It can be uncomfortable at times as much as it can be exhilarating. All of this is good because that's where the growth happens!

Franklin, NC is a small town in the mountains of Western North Carolina about 70 miles west of Asheville, NC and two hours north of Atlanta, GA.
Known in the modern day as the "Gem Capital of the World", the area was originally inhabited by Cherokee Indian tribe and is rich in ancient Cherokee history and lore.
Surrounded on all sides by the Appalachian mountain ranges, Franklin, NC is abundant with natural rubies, sapphires and other semi-precious stones that are found naturally occurring in the hills and rivers, hence the name Gem Capital of the World. Gem mining is a fun activity enjoyed by locals and tourists alike at small family operated gem mines in the area.
Waterfalls, trees, rivers, numerous lakes and creeks are also abundant in the area with an diverse array wildlife to observe: black bear, deer, bobcats, humming birds and more, the area is teeming with the fertile energy of mother nature.
A sacred land to the Cherokee, the ancient wisdom and energy of the area is palpable. Something magical happens as you enter the mountains here. The veils over the mystical and magical are thinner and mother nature nurtures the soul into singing it's own joyful song.
