About the event

Through embodiment practices, conscious conversations, breathwork and an alchemy of mysticism, tantra, and modern science, you’ll learn to let go of old stories that have been holding you back in your relationship and experience a level of passion and intimacy you may have thought gone forever.

In our first two cohorts of A Sacred Journey Into Intimacy, participant ages ranged from late-20s to mid-70s. They had been together three years to over 25 years. Some had zero experience with medicine and some were veterans of therapeutic and celebratory journeys.

None, however, had experienced a guided experience like A Sacred Journey Into Intimacy.

"C" reflected after the journey day: “For me it was incredible to be in the energy of the room. I was definitely very surprised at the utter lack of self-consciousness around my body. The energy in the space was a new and beautiful experience for me. It’s not just the medicine, it’s about being a part of a group field where the permission is there to express yourself in an intimate way.”

This one-day retreat includes a special dash of Heart-Opening Magic, an intention-setting Zoom call, and a follow up integration call.

More About Journey Day

During this transformative day, you and your partner will step away from the everyday and immerse yourselves in a nourishing and nurturing environment designed to facilitate profound growth. Through heart-opening magic and intentional practices, you'll explore breakthroughs in communication, intimacy, and understanding. This day is your opportunity to see each other in new ways, fostering a fresh perspective that reignites your flames of passion.

Though you'll be in community with other couples, you and your partner will have your own unique experience of connection and intimacy.

What others have said: 

  • "It gave me access to, I guess I'll call, an inner essence that I don't have access to very often."
  • "I can feel more connection with others. And, it enabled me to feel like some of the walls came down."
  • "There has been some sensuality that is new and different that hadn't been there before the medicine and I welcome that."
  • "For me, it would be that depth of connection, that deeper sense of connecting with, without the defenses, without the defensiveness, without, without the walls."

Testimonial from Rami and Ida, 25 years together:

"We had the privilege of working with Leslie and Ted during A Sacred Journey Into Intimacy, and we can confidently say that it was a life-changing experience. Leslie and Ted's skillful guidance and compassionate presence created a safe and nurturing space for us to explore the depths of our relationship with courage and vulnerability. The sacrament itself was incredibly powerful, allowing us to access deep emotions and insights that had been buried within us for years. Leslie and Ted's expert facilitation allowed us to process these feelings and communicate with each other in a way that felt incredibly healing and liberating. Since our session, we feel more connected and in love than ever before! We are deeply grateful for all the support and guidance, and we highly recommend Leslie and Ted to anyone seeking to access the profound healing power of this medicine."
