Directions to the Retreat Center:

From San Francisco:
Take Hwy 101 North to the south end of Ukiah, then take Route 253 to Boonville.
The Toll House Inn is approximately 11 miles from Ukiah on Route 253 and will be on
your right. The drive takes a little over 2 hours from the Golden Gate Bridge.
For a more scenic drive, you can also take Route 128 out of Cloverdale and travel into
Anderson Valley, turning right onto Route 253 just before entering Boonville. The Toll
House is located approximately 5 miles up Route 253 from the turnoff at Route 128 and
will be on your left, just past a long white fence. Although this is truly a beautiful drive,
the road is quite windy and takes approximately 10 minutes longer. Also, please be
aware that cell phone reception is limited to non-existent on much of these roads.

Art & Sensuality - Retreat in Bali

to May 5

Art & Sensuality - Retreat in Bali

  • Shambala Oceanside Retreat (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Come join me and Alena Hennessy in paradise and let us guide you into your whole self; through understanding your sensuality and power as women, not only to create but to shine out your truth. Bali is full of offerings to the divine through flower altars, painting, dance and ritual. We will gather and paint, feel our cells, focus on Sacral Chakra healing, movement, and practice with joyful prayer and intention. We will create from our hearts and understand the power of our sexuality. This retreat is designed to deeply nourish and experience yourself and the radiant woman you are. To create from a place that is true, to move in a way that calls in sweetness and fulfills you. To understand the power of pleasure. To know that radical acceptance of oneself is a holy act.

During this retreat you will learn how to activate your sexual power with simple techniques and channel the energy into your creative expression.  Creative energy and sexual energy come from the same place.  When you relearn how to connect your mind, heart and sexual center, energy flows easily through your body.  This allows you to live in your power, purpose and pleasure.  Nourishing your sensual self invites creativity and unleashes your radiance.

Art surrounds the Balinese from earliest childhood and is ever-present everywhere. The Balinese seem to make an art out of even the simple necessities of everyday life: fruit salad is served with flowers strewn on top, vegetables are carved in intricate designs at meals, daily offerings at the temples are ornate rituals of incense, orchids, fruit and prayer.  Bali’s incredible lush scenery inspires the artist’s soul. A land of magic, smiles and vibrant color, Bali will steal your heart.

Private or shared rooms, garden or ocean view $2,150 -$3,250

What’s included in the retreat:

~ Beautiful hand crafted Bali style lodging in artistically designed dwellings with temple carvings.  Single or shared room at the resort.

~ All vegetarian meals, snacks, herbal tea, fruit and refreshments lovingly created at the resort using local, organic foods. Come cleanse and nourish the body through food as well. Your body is a temple.

~ Transportation to resort from Bali international airport.

~ Intentional circle, meditation and share each morning.

~ All classes led by Alena: intuitive and intentional painting, flower altars, collaborative creativity and magic-making, liberating and empowered movement, and other surprises.

~ All classes led by Ashley: cultivating female sexual energy, activating your radiance switch, anatomy of arousal – understanding your sexual power, pleasure of the senses ritual, and more.

~ Two massages at the resort on site or one massage and facial.

~ A visit to a  Balinese temple and/or Balinese dance performance.

~ Meditation and energy healing classes led along with silent walks on the beach.

~ Snorkeling right off the beach at the resort.

~ Beach bonfire celebration and ritual.

~ Other juicy surprises! We are beyond excited for this… we want you to feel the beauty of you, in divine decadence, sensual, holy, loveliness that you are! Come pamper your body, mind, and spirit through all the senses!

Unveiling the Secrets to Female Pleasure - Men only workshop

Unveiling the Secrets to Female Pleasure - Men only workshop

You've asked for it! A men only class! Years of teaching women about their bodies and pleasure in heterosuxual relationships have consistenly brought up the question, "Would you please teach the men this stuff?!!!" Even with their boyfriends and husbands being fanatstic lovers this information is a game changer. Like anything in life, if we want to be good at something we go to school, take a course, practice and study. And yet no one receives a detailed sex education on what is possible with intimacy, pleasure and orgasm. How do women want to be touched, what do their bodies need to achieve multiple types of orgasm, how to create safety so you and your woman can explore your fantasies and edges. We are expected to know about our own pleasure and our partners bodies with little more than porn to guide us. Which is not the way most women want to be touched or made love to. Just to be clear: your ladies love you and your sex life! This is an invitation to learn what we all want to know...how to have amazing sex when the secret details about our bodies and pleasure are unveiled. In this workshop I am teaching men about:

-The anatomy of arousal, the physical and energetic sexual orgasmic potential

-How to listen to a woman's body in ways they crave

-Establishing safety so women can open and surrender

-How to communicate your needs and listen to theirs

-Learning how to initiate sexual energy that is well received

-The art of conscious touch - this is a game changer!

The Jade Dance - Qoya and Yoni Yoga with Jade Eggs

  • French Broad Co-op Movement & Learning Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Dance your pleasure and explore your intrinsic sexual power in this combination Qoya and Yoni Yoga practice.

In this women-only workshop we will learn how to cultivate sensual and sexual energy. We will connect deeply with our essence, express ourselves, and strengthen the pelvic floor with jade eggs.

Early Bird Tickets begin at $35!  Buy your ticket HERE

About Qoya (led by Virginia Rosenberg): Movement is Medicine. Qoya combines dance, yoga, and feminine movement with ritual, oracle cards, and community sharing to create a powerfully unique healing journey. One part women's circle, one part dance party! Through movement, we remember our essence as Wise, Wild, and Free. No experience is necessary in Qoya. There is no way you can do it wrong. Our bodies know how to move. Together we inhabit the sensual intelligence that makes us embodied, intuitive beings. We embody ourselves fully. Come as you are. Leave as more of who you are: juicy, turned on, and supported.

About Jade Egg Practice (led by Ashley Apple):
Yoni yoga is a practice based upon 3 principles which nourish the feminine sexual expression of pleasure. Experiencing different types of orgasm and building sexual pleasure are influenced by the health and strength of our yoni muscles. We will explore how to cultivate more pleasure with muscle control while strengthening the reproductive organs. We will learn the fundamentals of individual practice. Take home a solid foundation of techniques that support yoni health, strength and sexual pleasure. This class is a practicum. We will learn about the practice and then prepare with warm ups before flowing together in a movement based class that will ignite your jade egg practice.

Beautiful certified gem quality nephrite jade eggs are available to purchase for $60 or you can bring your own. You do not need to wear an egg to participate although it is highly recommended.
