Sex is complex—inhibitions, poor communication, hang-ups, body image, past trauma. But you can shift your approach, increase confidence, enhance intimacy, and connect more deeply to yourself.

Join sex educator and international TEDx speaker Dr. Andrea Pennington along with healer Karena Virginia for an intensive five-day retreat exploring mindfulness meditation and its impact on the brain and the sexual response system.

You will also learn:

  • How to increase self-confidence and self-acceptance
