The Power of Mindful Sex

Have you ever thought about how much your mind is involved in sex and making love?  Because we are completely immersed in something physical, we are generally not aware how much we ARE thinking and WHAT we are thinking.

It's not until we move our awareness from mind to body, that we can go more into what we are feeling, doing and being.

Described as a 'modern day mystic', Diana Richardson, co-author of Tantric Sex and Menopause, spoke in Austria at TEDx talking about 'The New Normal'.  She speaks of the origin of her work and offers easy to follow guidelines about mindfulness and making love - as she says; "Don't believe me - try it out and see how you feel..."

When the real truth about sex is revealed, problems in the bedroom / intimacy can fall away. 

Awareness in sex creates love and connection.  Diana has spent 25 years teaching couples about sex as a form of meditation where longing and attraction don’t die. Are you open minded? Are you open to explore? Learn how sex can bring healing and connection to your relationship in her thought-provoking TEDx talk.


Diana Richardson is one of today’s leading authorities on human sexuality. She has written 8 books on how in practical ways a person can experience a more fulfilling sex and love life.  Born in South Africa in 1954, she first qualified as a lawyer (B.A.LLB), and then she trained as a massage therapist (ITEC) in the UK. Her interest in the body and healing prompted an intense personal exploration into the union of sex and meditation - the essence of Tantra. Since 1993, together with her partner, she has been sharing her insights and experiences with couples who travel from many different parts of the world to participate in their informative and life changing workshops in Switzerland.  It was in Switzerland that Janet and Gene first met Diana in person, at The Making Love Retreat TM.

After our first retreat with Diana ten years ago (after many years of our own learning and practice through books and teachings) Gene and I asked to be trained under her and bring The Making Love Retreat TM to Australia.  We are honoured with Diana's blessing to still remain the only qualified teachers of The Making Love Retreat TM in the Southern Hemisphere.

Gene and I are so inspired and personally so committed to sharing this teaching with others. We are really looking forward to our upcoming retreat and welcoming the couples who are committed to changing their lives!"  - Janet
