Opening to Love
Perhaps one of you wants to make love but the other isn’t really interested. You just don’t seem to be on the same page.
Maybe it’s been a long time since the two of you have made love and you’re a bit timid about even going there.
Maybe, despite everything you’ve tried, lovemaking has never really satisfied either or both of you – and you just wish it could be different.
Or .... you really love each other but there’s just not the time…perhaps you are just too plain busy
Whatever your specific circumstance, if the lovemaking between you and your partner is not what you had hoped it would be, it doesn’t have to be that way.
And if it is, or has been, satisfying in the past and you are interested in rekindling or enhancing your experience of love, then this week will truly replenish.
You can make love in a way that honours and fulfills both of you – it is possible.
"I’ve learned how to love my woman as a man. The effect on her is what I’ve always dreamed but never thought possible. I’ve experienced love. I’m far more attentive in conversation than I’ve ever been. At a deeper level I feel more of a man and I see my wife more as a woman than ever. I feel like our needs have been very clearly identified so we now have a far greater ability to connect. We know what our love should feel like now and we know how to get back to it (in case it ever breaks). The most difficult thing was making the commitment to de-prioritise work for that period. Once that was out of the way the rest was beautiful. Sure, we were out of our comfort zone for a lot of time but I can’t bring myself to say any of it was difficult because it was too good!" Simon, 32
The term 'Slow Sex' can seem boring to some, but when you begin, through specific practices, to develop greater sensitivity, physically and emotionally, another whole world opens up. One where love is a natural by-product, rather than a destination. Fears fall away. Closed doors begin to open. New understandings effortlessly reveal themselves and open the pathway to love.
"The love making is a 180% shift from the unfulfilling robotic way that I was. I feel overflowing presence that has somehow taken me effortlessly to ecstatic states that I have never experienced before. But even more important for me is the fact that I now feel ready and willing to step fully into this relationship with my heart and soul open in innocence and trust, hand in hand with a wonderful man as a fuller , more compassionate and more empowered reason for myself. So much gratitude. This work can change the world." Sharon, 58

Janet has been co-presenter of The Making Love Retreat TM, as created by Diana Richardson for the since 2012. She came to this work when she felt a deep despondency about sexual relationships, and is now inspired to help couples bring more presence to making love, reconnecting to their own hearts and bodies.
"Prior to working with Janet I was feeling frustrated, dissatisfied, angry, confused. My husband and I had always had what I considered to be a great sex life, and then suddenly for no apparent reason everything changed. My lover and soulmate had started experiencing impotence and premature ejaculation, and the worry and anxiety that goes with this, and this started a downward spiral both in the bedroom and in our communication and intimacy on a day-to-day basis. In working with Janet I came to an understanding about what was going on for him, so that I could be more accepting and empathetic, and we both felt a deep desire to connect more on a 'tantric' level in the bedroom. The work we did deepened our connection so that we could go beyond worry, anxiety, fear and anger to a place of acceptance, connection and deep love." Renee, 38
"I was frustrated and helpless regarding sex in my marriage. Now with this teaching I feel inspired, empowered and excited to be the lover for my wife that she truly needs o find healing, ecstasy and orgasmic bliss in nurturing love. Through slow sex, I can heal my pattern of feeling “not good enough’. Sex and being a confident lover were major missing pieces of my puzzle. I feel at peace, at home and centered. We now make beautiful love instead of trying to have sex." Uhlrich, 44

"A 100% shift in our relationship to a deep mutual understanding. From Living in the mind to living in the body, couldn't be more profound. I am freed from the need to “do” anything when we make love and it has become such a joy, to make love with my beautiful partner in presence without agenda. This has had a profound effect on me personally, literally opening my heart to a new way of experiencing the love that I feel for Sharon …" David, 63
"The teachings are so simple and yet so profound. A year prior to the retreat, we had decided to separate after 17 years of marriage. Our relationship had become very stuck and toxic, which underneath was all related to a loss of loving intimacy. The retreat has completely transformed our relationship. If any of the old ways of relating come back, we simply come back to the practices from the retreat, and we instantly return to deep love, relaxation and harmony in our relationship and our family unit with our teenage sons." Jane, 48
