Heart Centered Sexuality Retreat

Facilitated by Ami Opal, ND and Julie Jeske, MS

  • Does it feel like there is a disconnect between your body and your mind?
  • Is it hard for you to ask for what you want or receive pleasure?
  • Is shame getting in the way of enjoying sex or pleasure?

This is a one-day retreat for women who want to align their body, mind and spirit with their sexuality.  Julie works with clients from a mind perspective and Ami reaches their bodies.  Together they will help women embrace who they are and eliminate obstacles to pleasure. The workshop is limited to 10 women and takes place in a beautiful garden setting.  We will incorporate visualization, ritual, journaling, educational information about sexuality and your body and therapeutic exercises.

Who should attend this retreat?

  • Any woman who feels  something blocking her capacity for pleasure.
  • Any woman who feel disconnected from her body or feels something is getting in the way of feeling her body completely.
  • Any woman who would like a whole day to focus on herself.
  • Any women looking to connect with other like-minded women.
  • Any woman who wants to learn more about her body and her sexuality.
  • Any woman who wants to eliminate sexual shame and repair messages about sex she may have learned from past partners, families, religion or negative experiences.
  • Any woman who would like a little help learning to love her body and honor who she is sexually.

What makes this retreat different than the work Julie and Ami do in individual sessions?

  • This retreat is 7 hours long with a 1 hour break for lunch.  If you were to work with Julie and Ami for 7 hours it would cost a combined total of $1125.
  • In addition to working with Julie and Ami, you get the benefit of being around a group of women with whom you can share experiences.  There is a power in groups of women.  It is healing to share your stories and listen to others’.
  • While we will be working and learning and growing, this is also a retreat.  It is designed to make your body and spirit feel good and give you a break from your day-to-day life.
