What is the reason that you are joining this group? What do you hope to get out of it?

We created this group to share what we know with others, both to help them and to refine our skills in the teaching of what we know. We also created it as a way of helping us get off our butts and complete our book. We are hoping that through the people we meet to find clients who will want our services and help us by giving us more case study material for our book,“Intimate Passionate Love” which is for couples who want to re-ignite the romance and passion in their relationship. We hope to have a lot of fun and further our evolution as we pass on what we know to others and to learn more in the process of doing so. We hope also to learn from you. For us it is a matter of self-actualization. Ours and Yours.

Has your partner agreed to join with you and have they done so? (This meetup is designed with couples in mind.)

This is a joint project and experience for the two of us. Although this meetup is designed with couples in mind, we welcome singles who wish to learn how to have a more conscious and Tantric relationship in the future instead of repeating the patterns of the past.

How long have you been in your relationship?

We have been together for 26 years. We are a couple in a evolutionary, Tantric relationship. We use our relationship for our self-actualization as individuals. Through it we come to be bigger, more aware, freer, more loving, more spiritually enlightened. It is through the working through of “our stuff” over that 26 years that we have come to know, and continue to learn more about, how to work through relationship dynamics and overcome those things that are blocks to intimacy. We have also learned to balance togetherness and separateness and freedom and love. In the process of learning this we have studied and applied what we learned from many of the great teachers in the fields of Tantra and Conscious Relationship and have used our creativity to come up with our own insights and processes. We know what to do to increase your chances of success of having a conscious, intimate, passionate love that lasts throughout the decades. And, we love to be with those who walk this path.

What, if any, experience have you and your partner had with Tantra?

We have been Tantra teachers for 16 years. For Anya, this has been her primary occupation for the past 13 years and she has worked several thousand people over this time. We present workshops on Tantra and do private Tantric coaching with couples and individuals in our Northern San Diego, California home. We have studied with most of the luminaries of Tantra, and in particular, the great Tantric master, Osho. We are also each others teacher. We are both trained in therapeutic and sensual massage. We live in a Tantric world of friends who are teachers, writers and workshop leaders in the field of Tantra. We are currently writing a book, and producing related products on Tantra, sustaining romantic love and sexual turn-on in long term relationships, and sexual health.
