This unique 4.5 hr gathering is about authentic sharing and is open to all with a willingness to show up in their greatest vulnerability. Join our circle and be witnessed in the moment and reflections we offer one another. Separate journeys are created for the feminine and masculine essence. We will initially join together in an opening circle and then separate into two groups, one lead by Monique and the other Lawrence. After our delicious, heart expanding circles we will again return to one for a final sharing of the shifts taken place and for witnessing our unique divine essence. Monique’s Circle:

You are invited to feel empowered in your sexuality, supported by your sisterhood and ready to manifest all that you dare! Take your self-practice to the next level at this incredibly safe and sacred space for hands-on experience and connection-time with other women. Practice surrender and play!

Monique’s Circle explores:

• Powerful boundary-setting practices

• Exercises that encourage bonding

• Guided instruction

• Sensual Massage

Something magical happens when two or more women shed their armor, show up in their complete vulnerability and share from their deepest depths. Every woman deserves to feel this beautiful sisterhood connection.

There will be nudity and a live demonstration of yoni massage. Learn about releasing stored trauma and find greater pleasure from empowering one another. There will be time and space to explore yoni massage with a partner, if you choose. For those who have attended past Dakini/Women’s circles, facilitated by Monique, look forward to deeper depths and levels of trust and inspiration. Ignite your inner wisdom and aliveness
Practice the harmonizing power of receiving from another
Transform sexual shame into positive life energy

Lawrence’s Circle:

In a separate room, Lawrence will guide the masculine on a unique and personal journey. Through visualization exercises and a frank discussion on finding that which makes you tick, you will be assisted in letting go of limiting beliefs, false bravado and outdated values and strategies.

Lawrence says:

“People say the world is all about love, the universe is made of love, love is the answer to all things, and all you need is love. Love is a very confusing metaphor that awkwardly hides people’s true motivations. You see, the world, at its core, is not about love. The world is about fuck. Without fuck, there is no love. Without fuck, there is no sentient life. If we had a planet of people who only loved from their hearts, without the sex, there would be no people. As we learn to embrace life from the context of fuck, there would be a lot less confusion about reality. There wouldn’t be a question about why he or she is talking to me. We talk to, listen to, hang out with and follow people we are attracted to, who if given the chance, we might fuck, We could drop all the shaming, blaming, guilting perspectives we currently have regarding sex, because fuck would be the baseline of obviousness. Love is delicious and necessary to happiness and fulfillment, but fuck is essential to life.”

What Monique says about Lawrence Lanoff:

Lawrence offers the opportunity to unlearn everything we have been taught. He offers an energetic container that accepts everything unconditionally and gently asks us to question our assumptions. Lawrence creates an amazing playground for energetics and he deftly creates a high-vibe vortex of this electrified field in group settings. He teaches us to come from our own inner "rock star" by creating a no-fly-zone that aides in extinguishing drama and/or victimhood. Lawrence creates the space to relax into ones true essence without fear, guilt nor shame and into integration.

Closing Circle:

An hour of interactive discussion, shared experiences and authentically raw dialogue led by Lawrence and Monique. This event promises to be a powerful and transformative experience and we look forward to sharing with you!


"My heart is filled, my esteem and worth are heightened..... Thank you for creating and sharing such an empowering sacred space for each of us to embrace our vulnerability and connect sincerely with each other and our deepest sense of self" JB

Lawrence Lanoff (Sedona, AZ) is one of the most fascinating people on the teaching landscape. Truly a renaissance man, Lawrence is a film director, photographer, author, healer and teacher. He calls himself a “rubber meets the road kinda guy” as he applies a practical essence to his artistic and spiritual skills that span over 20 years. Equipped with an array of disciplines, starting with a couple of dream jobs – directing movies and as a photographer for Playboy Magazine. Lawrence has been in a process of refining his radical teachings, leading people into a new kind of freedom, literally deprogramming them from the sleep imposed by cults and religions. What is slowly evolving is a revolutionary new theory of consciousness that incorporates evolution, symbolism, metaphor, neurobiology and their relationship to healing, spiritual evolution, and neuro-economics — the neural pathways that influences our deepest feelings about self-worth, money and, of course, sex and relationships.
