I didn't think our lovemaking could get any better, but... uhhh..!"
- quote from a 40-something man attending one of Mary's intimacy retreats
Great relationships are built on open communication and trust. But when differences emerge, in or out of the bedroom, too often we don’t know how to talk about what's coming up, don’t know how to move through and beyond into renewed connection and sweetness.
Then it can feel easiest just to stay silent.
Couples often avoid hitting up against those same old disagreements, but in so doing they losethe potential for the vibrant juicy relationship they most desire.
Then they sacrifice truth and sexual vibrancy for what feels like peace, but is actually a deadened connection.
And the fun is gone!
I believe that a committed relationship can actually be its own fast tract to spiritual enlightenment.
When a couple is willing to let themselves be annealed in the fire of mutual respect, forgiveness, and honesty, what results is a real sense of personal freedom, deepened love, and abiding sexual connection.
This is what every couple hopes for, but few have the opportunity to access an experienced and wise guide.
And fewer still let their desire for a life of love lead the way instead of living on maybe someday hopes and imagined dreams.
Relationships have the potential to be so much more real and juicy than most couples are satisfied to tolerate!
This retreat is meant to be just that! Your chance to retreat... The two of you will have time to deepen your connection without the distraction and complications of all you've left at home.

Who am I?
First, I'm a continual adventurer into intimacy. But I didn't start out that way. Growing up in a loving but religiously restrictive home, I had very little connection to my body. Still, I innately knew that deep committed connection was my path. An early marriage (and my romantic idealism) faded when inevitable intimacy issues arose that we had no sense of how to address.
It wasn't until my mid-40s that I began a serious search into my own core defensive compensations and recurring struggles in relationship. I couldn't hide out any more. It was after nearly 20 years of a long-term marriage and mothering 3 children that I "remembered" an early incident of sexual abuse. As I began to peal back the cultural overlay of dis-respect for the feminine and my own long-standing and unrecognized repression, I launched into the adventure that has become my calling: to release all that stands in the way of living ALIVE in my own erotic life-force energy ... and assist others in adventuring there, too.
Over the last 14 years I have been devoted to the ancient teachings and practices of tantra and qigong, and have attended or assisted in more personal growth, spiritual, and relationship trainings than I can count. I am certified as an Exceptional Marriage Mentorand am accredited and endorsed through Caroline Muir's Divine Feminine Institute's rigorous programas a spiritual/sexual educator and practitioner.
Then in 2013, after two years of focused study, I was ordained as an inter-spiritual minister through One Spirit Interfaith Seminaryin New York City,bringing together my devotion to Deep Connection and my passion for living fully alive in this body, in this lifetime.
We all carry wounds that, if not released, limit the joy we might feel in life. Most people are willing to live half-alive, satisfied with the patterns they're created to avoid exploring what hinders real living.
I've watched how healing happens most powerfully when our bodies are involved instead of ignored. Through my work, I have had the pleasure to personally assist well over 100 singles and couples who were no longer satisfied with life as usual... or who knew there had to be more to intimacy than what they'd experienced thus far.It's my particular joy to accompany couples in welcoming Spirit, Heart, Mind, and Body to dance together.
I am also a frequent blogger at DiviningBeauty.com and the author of the forthcoming book, The Pleasure Playbook: 13 Invitations for Awakening Joy. I lead retreats and workshops for women and couples in New England, Central America, and New Zealand, teach on-line workshops, and coach and counsel couples, individuals, and groups as we re-unite the sensual, sexual, and spiritual to live the life all humans were meant to enjoy.

Indeed, seeing our sexuality as sacred is the best antidote I know for struggles with body image and sexual difference.
Supporting a spiritual awareness that integrates reverence for the body can open us to a most profound lifetime of awakening and joy.
I look forward to connecting with you to begin your exploration into the possibility of joining us at Haramara this January. Feel free to email us at info@DiviningBeauty.com.
