What an incredible few weeks it has been with TEDx Noosa where I spoke on bringing Sex and Love together. It was an awesome experience! 

Then last Saturday I had 16 women for Woman's Body Woman's Wisdom - wow! What a powerful day. Many have been asking when the TEDx talk video will be here - I don't know! But when it is, you will be the first to know about it!

The big news now is that the exquisite Making Love Retreat is soon here 19th - 25th May. If you're feeling the need to reignite your relationship, find a way of making love that will revolutionise your life, that is healing, loving and health enhancing, there are still places for this The Making Love Retreat. If you have any questions I'd be happy to answer them.

I just wanted to share with you some of what participants from our last retreat said …Have a read… it’s inspiring:
"This work is revolutionary. There has been an enormous sense of relief around sex, removing expectations, discovering a different way of being. Realising that I had been playing a path of goal driven sex and sexuality, contrary to my true nature - which was never going to bring me the peace and love I so craved. Now ... no craving, no manipulation, no agenda. (and no heating up!)" — female, Corporate Manager
I now have a sense of optimism in myself,my wife and our relationship. (something in short supply in recent times) and I am now relating rather than preparing to defend. It has been a delightful and profoundly moving experience. The life changer I/we have been looking for. A jewel. Thanks for it all" — Cliff
"My heartfelt thanks for showing me the path back home! And for giving me permission to be loved and loving. At first I thought the afternoons would be daunting but very much looked forward to them after the first time!" — Jane
"I now feel a release and freedom to talk about sex. An honouring of ourselves and each other's beauty. You created a great space, great accommodation, elegant process, great music, great food" — James
"It intensified and renewed my commitment to being grounded in myself first and then giving to the relationship from that space. I now have a deeper connection with myself, a deeper connection in relationship and more in alignment with my inner sexual knowing." — female, Engineer
"One of the most enjoyable moments was connecting and lovemaking - experiencing ecstatic bliss. The gentle, caring, nurturing facilitation created and supported a space for me to experience my journey. No expectations, no judgement, no dynamic energy, only stillness and respect. Thank you." — female, Business Manager
"My body is softer, more peaceful, more open and receptive. I deeply appreciated every moment of the retreat. It has been absolutely exquisite, so sensitively put together, as well as delivered.You are both beautiful loving and gentle souls. Thank you." — Diana
"I have a new awareness both of where is home in my body and when I am and when I am not present. I also have a new awareness of where to come from in lovemaking. The retreat has been beautifully and sensitively presented, with great faithfulness to its origins and with great personal experiences related in openness and has been one of the significant milestones in our 23 year marriage." — Geoffrey
" Every day was filled with enjoyable moments and hours but being with my partner as he experienced his heart opening while we were making love was certainly beautiful and memorable." — Phyl
"Our relating is deeper, softer, slower, with a greater sense of self. I loved the ritual of meeting my partner with soft gentle eyes - it felt very nurturing." — Bo
"Spending more time in my body has opened my heart further and I am able to feel and give more love to my partner. This makes me feel better about myself." — Rob
"One of the most enjoyable moments for me was feeling my husband's touch on my arms the first time we did the connecting exercise - being touched with love and tenderness" — female, Corporate Manager

The Road Back to Intimacy

The Road Back to Intimacy

I've seen a lot in my almost 40 years of personal growth and more than 20 years of psychotherapy.

The changes, the trends, the breakthroughs in relationship and trauma theory have reshaped therapeutic environments. And I've seen a lot in my time of exploration into the subject of sexuality and relationship I can tell you.

And, what I have witnessed and been prey to at times, in the name of 'personal growth'...

Making Love your Priority

When the lovely, Luanne Mareen, in her Answering the Call of Your Purpose series, interviewed me recently, she prompted me to ponder my purpose. It did make me contemplate what led me to do what I do.

I really believe our 'purpose' is more simple than we think. It's just the avenue or the pathway through which we live that purpose that can vary, according to our life circumstances. Whether...

Are you in love or fear?

Are you in love or fear?

It's a crazy time right now. In Australia, the level of fear in the air seems to be heightening. There's an agitation, a fragility in many. Are you being pulled into it or are you able to remain buoyant?

This low-level anxiety affects our nervous systems and ultimately can affect our relationships. We are at survival in some ways. And our primal brain (survival brain) responds to this fight-flight. Stress and...

How can I reach her?

I often hear men say, when they speak about sexual intimacy, "It's her problem, not my problem. I want it. She doesn't".

Well, it's not that simple! And it's not her fault, and it's not his fault. There is a lot at play here.

In this video I am primarily speaking to men. But roles can always be reversed. Sometimes it is the man who is retreating from sexual intimacy, so I...

Mindful Menopause

Mindful Menopause

My daughter took this photo in Melbourne early in 2020.

Contemplating my beautiful journey with her as a mother made me think of something that happened as she grew up. To be honest this is a little hard to admit! But for the sake of any woman approaching perimenopause, well, here I go ...

One day when she was 12, and I was 42, I found myself behaving like a crazy woman...

Transforming sex into Love

'Why can I not reach her anymore?'. This is the question so many men are asking me lately.

I am seeing a change in men generally these days. Their bewilderment engenders humility. Their hearts are aching to love and to see their partner shine again.

I see this in their faces as they arrive on the first night of the Making Love Retreat, downhearted and confused. Sometimes years of tears ready...
