Deepening Intimacy Couples Retreat. Suffolk, September 2020.

A rich place for relationships to flourish.

This is a safe yet playful space for yourself and your partner to learn about deepening your connection and meeting each other in a new way.

Relationship can be the place for the biggest growth within our lives, but also has the potential for the greatest challenges.
How easy it can be to stop making time to connect with each other when the daily roles of life get in the way. But recharging or reigniting that spark and desire can be just as easily achieved.
Sex Coach & Tantra Practitioner Jem Ayres, alongside Sexual Pleasure Practitioner, Hugs will guide you through the weekend. Both Sexological Bodyworkers their knowledge is rooted in science but their passion is to share sacred sexuality work for healing, growth, intimacy and greater pleasure in all aspects of life.

You’ll be invited into exercises and experiences for building conscious connections that transcend words and blocks to intimacy, creating a softer more expanded place to meet your partner in.

Expect sacred union, ritual and intimacy, alongside practical pleasuring technique teaching, conscious touch, orgasmic breathwork,  games for two players, a couples cacao ceremony and much more…..

You will walk away from this retreat having journeyed with your partner into new landscapes, and have a tool belt of deep yet playful practices to work with at home, allowing your relationship to flourish to its fullest potential.

This space is for couples of any sexual orientation or gender configuration.
You will only be working with your partner for exercises.  You’ll be supported to honour your own organic pace- we’ll meet you where you’re at.
