Awakening Through Love


Awakening through Love retreat is our new signature event. It has been created specifically to show people how to grow, transform, and awaken spiritually and sexually alongside their intimate partner.

Whether you are single or in a relationship, this retreat will provide you with experiences, learning opportunities, and tools to deepen intimacy either in your current or future relationship. 

This retreat has been designed for people to experience a quality of intimacy they have always longed for, but thought was impossible.

Creating the quality of emotional connection, sexual intimacy and partnership we desire is often challenging. Many people never get close to touching it.

Rod and I know how painful that feels.It hurts a LOT!

We have experienced so much of what’s available therapeutically and in the personal development space, and it does not give you the tools to create a thriving intimate relationship. 

Whether you are single or in a relationship, our Awakening Through Love retreat will change your life dramatically. In many ways this new body of work is the culmination of our journey. It’s our premier offering to our growing community, and will provide the soothing balm for the aches and pains of modern relationships.

During this 5 day retreat, you will learn practices, skills, and tools you can take home and implement in your life immediately.

Love, intimacy, and relationship can be a medicine, the medicine for past wounds and hurts. But only if we know how to be that love, and that medicine.

Whether you are preparing for your next relationship, beginning a new one, or you’ve been together for a decade or more, we have the tools to help you build the relationship beyond your wildest dreams.

Join us for this 5 day immersion and learn how to access the healing available in intimate relationships.In our years of experience leading retreats, we have seen the incredible possibilities, and the healing that can take place when people connect as a community. 

We are committed to empowering men and women to thrive in their relationships, whether you’re in that relationship now, or in the future.

Understanding how your relationship can become a fertile space for growth, transformation and awakening is profound and life changing.

We will be handing you the keys to create the quality of love, intimacy and relationship that you have always wanted.

Our Community's Experiences


"My journey allowed me to feel the aliveness of humanity, and to give myself permission to feel more fully. The teachings also involve psychotherapy which I felt is integral to opening ourselves up to wholeness. The training has deepened my intimate relationship with my partner, children and community. I'm blessed with the opportunity to work with couples, singles and group spaces to open up to their sexual aliveness in all aspects of life.."


"The Couples weekend offered me a safe and warm place to look within myself and challenge my view of my relationship with Lotta. The workshops, both emotional and physical, were challenging yet rewarding. Martina and all the leaders were knowledgeable and created a loving and safe space for the activities. The weekend opens your eyes to what is possible to create in a relationship if two people share a common love."


"Through working with Rod I have expanded my awareness, developed a deeper trust and love of self and transformed the fear I held of other men into feelings of understanding, love and trust.Working with Rod has had a profound impact on my personal, working, familial and intimate relationships. As well as in my career and now in how I lead other men on this path.I strongly encourage anyone who is considering working with Rod not to hesitate, you will be in good hands.Rod’s persistence with his own journey is inspirational and the love and consideration he puts into how he offers his gifts is both nourishing and exceptionally rare.
