OUR FESTIVAL PRESENTERS

 MARÉ SIMONE 

It's been said that Mare is the reason Southern California boasts such a devotional relationship with tantra.

Muse Mare has dedicated her life to exploring arousal and orgasm as healing.

 

"Tantra yoga, breathwork, movement, and sound are keys we'll use to unlock and activate O-Energy."

"Supercharge your touch so you can love and serve in ways that are most needed, deeply desired and fully received," she adds. 

Mare is certified in two Tantra lineages: Ipsula and Source Tantra. She also trained and works with therapists and psychologists in Surrogate Partner Therapy.

 

Join us in this workshop and activate your O!

The Sacred Sex Worker - Healing the World  APRIL 16   8:15 pm

DOMINIC LORD

Are you ready to let go of old patterns and false beliefs that block you from connecting to your body?

 

Dominic Lord will show you how by using kink!

 

He studied kink practices that incorporate bondage and sensation play and discovered that if he combined kink practices with tantra, women would invariably have a deep and profound experience of themselves.

 

"The Sacred Masculine can create the space for the Sacred Feminine," he says, "to trust, open, and experience their own divine nature."

 

Dominic works with individuals, couples, and groups to help them authentically be in relationship with power, passion and love.

Sheryl-Dawn integrates massage, craniosacral, lymphatic breast massage, Womb Coaching Therapy, Holistic Pelvic Care (internal vaginal work), shamanic practices and more to focus on her clients' pelvic health and integrated sexuality.

  

Having worked with thousands, Sheryl-Dawn has witnessed the results of unhealed scars from the deep conditioning around sexuality.  

 

"If these wounds remain unresolved, it blocks the connection to vitality, pleasure, creativity, physical and emotional health." 

"Our physical state is profoundly affected by our emotions, mental overwhelm, our disconnect from ourselves, community, nature, and our purpose," she explains. "We rarely consider the impact of these imbalances, especially as it ripples out into our sexuality." ​

 

Sheryl-Dawn helps people to explore the hidden dynamics of unconscious, embedded patterns and supports releasing from the body, cellular memory and psyche simultaneously.​

Gyan is a massage therapist who lives in Taiwan and specializes in belly massage, pelvic opening techniques, breathwork, and acupressure.

 

His book Lovehand™ -- Primal Body Magic is just released and includes insights about his 19 years with clients and their deep healing.

 

"I have seen true magic happen through this work. And it is these miracles that give me the confidence and passion to share my methods with you."

 

Often, the abdomen and pelvis are ignored by massage therapists or are treated technically, he says. However, deep transformation occurs when he and his clients bring presence to the energy housed in these areas, particularly, he says, after realizing the connection between the physical and the emotional. 

 

"Healing via our gut and sexual energy is powerful and it’s time to welcome new solutions that are needed in our new world. It’s time to open the conversation."  

 

Join his talk as he offers deep nourishment designed for our changing world and the profound healing we all need.

MORGAINE OWENS

Morgaine is a photographer, doula, birth educator, rebirthing breathworker, holographic kinetics practitioner, yogi, personal wellness coach, bioresonance and mandala light therapy practitioner.

“After the birth of my son I experienced quite profound post-partum depression. As I healed, I experienced beautiful states of bliss that lasted for days," she explains. "I saw how the primary experience of birth and first limbic imprinting sets the tone for this dualistic approach to life." 

 

After birthing her son in a completely natural way at home, and learning more about how to generate pleasure and self-love in her life, Morgaine asked, "What if birth was orgasmic? What if the orgasmic state we experience in love-making extended itself through pregnancy and birth? What if we came into the world not through pain and fear, but through confidence, pleasure, and orgasmic exuberance? What kind of world could we create?"

Join us as Morgaine shares and holds space for the sacredness in our sexuality and how that leads to pleasure and orgasmic bliss in birthing.

DR. KENEEN HOPE McNIVEN,  DC

When stress creates a protective fight, flight, freeze tension in the body, the result may be a brittle, unresponsive or overly reactive psoas muscle. This stress can result in pain, stress, sleep loss and disrupted sexuality. 

"This long muscle supports the spine and vital organs like the heart and lungs, as well as pelvic organs including the bladder, bowel and reproductive organs," Dr. Hope explains.

 

In this movement and PowerPoint presentation, Colorado's Dr. Hope, certified Anusara yogi and psoas workshop leader provides wisdom and tools to initiate healing of this deep core tissue.

"Liberate your sacred psoas, spread your sensual wings and enjoy your enhanced sexual essence with a healed psoas!"

Allow your body to emanate from a graceful and grounded core!
