£840.00 – £1,390.00
Deeper Love

Four day residential immersion in nature

Are you ready to transform your intimacy to it's full potential ?
Would you like a simple, powerful and easy pathway there ?

~ Do you feel the potential to go to the next level of sexual Alchemy but not sure how ?

~ Have you tried therapy and other workshops but change doesn’t sustain ?

~ Are you ready to co-create the sexual intimacy you long for together ?

You are welcome just as you are

Whether you are having an amazing time together and want to build on that or that you are having challenges with sexual intimacy, whether you in a long-term relationship or just beginning together you are welcome, this work is designed for you. Whether you are gay, straight or queer, this couples work offers simple yet powerful methods that any couple can use to transform. Whether you are monogamous or open relating, whether you enjoy kinky sex or straight sex or anything in between, this map can take you to the most amazing sexual connection you long for. 

I have over 30 years experience supporting couples from all walks of life to transforming their relationship. I specialise in intimacy, Sacred sexuality, conflict and communication.

What seems clear from working with thousands of couples is that very few are having the kind of sexual intimacy they long for after the first phase of love and passion fades. At best couples are having loving regular sex thats ‘good enough’ but falls short of what they truly ache for and many couples are having virtually no sex or no sex at all ! When things are challenging in the relationship sex is often the first thing to suffer as a consequence. Resentments build up over time and simmer away in the background. 

Perhaps your having an amazing journey together and you want to build on what you have by learning some ground breaking powerful methods to take you to the next level.

One question that often arises is about where and what we learned about sex growing up ? The answer for most of us is that it fell short of being helpful and a lot of it, really quite harmful. Leaving us feeling that so much more is possible yet somehow slightly out of reach. Where do we now go to learn ? 

The good news is that to get back to mind blowing, safe and open intimacy we do not have to spends months unpacking other issues that might be in the relationship to transform intimacy. The map I have created has been developed from over 30 years of working with couples and many of them facing the most challenging of issues. The great thing is that the methods I have developed offer direct and easy pathways back to intimacy without having to gloss over anything and also without having to spends months in trenches battling it out.

The difficult truth and pathways through

Many couples instinctively know that there is so much more possible in sexual intimacy and have a longing for it to be different. For couples who have been together a long time especially there can also be an accumulated background low level feeling of resentment that simmers away quietly along with a slow decline in a willingness to try.

We might attempt to distract ourselves from this by either being busying ourselves with other life stuff or focusing on all the good things that works well in the relationship, or we convince ourselves that we can settle for what we have. 

In truth one of the main factors that prevents amazing sexual intimacy is couples is not knowing how to communicate about sex and intimacy, it might be experienced as a loss of desire or a frustration at not having desire met. Either way, once there are positive pathways to effective communication so much more becomes possibly and the steps on the path can move forwards to creating a win win kind of sexual intimacy. 

There is much to feel hopeful about. Having worked with 100’s of couples who want to see change happen sooner rather than later, I have seen many transformations happen in a short space of time. Going from feeling total despair to deep loving connection in a few simple steps. If you are willing to dive in, the riches of gold are awaiting you….

Come and join me for 4 powerful and transformational days, I am confident that it will be time and energy well spent !!

 

“Thank you so much for the Thresholds, I can’t really find the words because its implications are so significant for our relationship and our lives together…. a really transformational chapter”

Paul and Harriet

This transformational intensive is for you if:

~ You are committed to your own growth 
~ You are ready to step out of the blame game 
~ You are willing to be honest with yourself and with your partner
~ You are willing to try to be vulnerable and open
~ You are ready to do what it takes to heal and transform

This transformational intensive is NOT for you if:

~ Your believe if your partner could change things would all be ok
~ You are coming to try and change your partner
~ You believe that your not worthy of your partner
~ You want some quick techniques that create a temporary fix.

~ You don’t see any value in vulnerability as a gateway to intimacy

How I work with you

The 4 day immersion is a deep, beautiful and transformational process that helps you to get to the very heart of what is in the way of you being able to take your intimacy to a deeper level. Some of the time you will be in circle with other couples, some of the time you will be just with your partner in your own private space. And sometimes you might be just with Jewels being guided personally.

You will be invited to go at a pace that works for you and at no point will you be forced or made to do something that is not comfortable for you. All my work is trauma informed and I never push anyone to go somewhere that they do not feel ready or able to go to. Choice and consent sit at the centre of all the work. I always work with a partner so as to create balance in the circle.

It will meet you exactly where you are and support you to go at the pace you need to go at while finding way to open more and feel safe and easeful while doing so. The process is not therapy but may feel therapeutic at times. Jewels works with a small number of couples on each workshop so as to be sure that each couple has the support they need. 

I do not hold to a specific type or style of relationship. I honour what you have chosen as a couple and support you to make that thrive. And if the type of relationship you want has changed, I will explore that with you too and find new ways to create what you want together, so that both of you feel empowered in your choices.

I do not aspire to any particular expressions of sexuality, I welcome all aspects of expression and celebrate your unique and individual way of expressing your sexual being. My guiding principle is this:

PLEASE NOTE
There is no nudity, partner swapping or public sexual expression within the group space.
Any invited intimacy will be practiced within the privacy of your own bedroom.

 

In this short video, Jewels guides a couple through a repeated conflict they experience and bring them back to connection. This is one of many methods I use when I work with you as a couple.

Transparency in how we work out what to charge

The EarthHeart project does not seek to make profit. It costs £75,000 a year to keep the project afloat (not including a wage for Jewels or facilitators) we divide these costs  between the various offerings over the year and this is how each offering is priced. We understand that some of what we offer is not accessible to some people. We have some concession tickets and this relies on people who are able, to to pay the higher price tickets. 

Concession tickets
Below is our guidelines for selecting the concession ticket. We aim to find a balance between making the work more accessible to those in genuine need and us earning a fair living. We are a small not for profit project so we are somewhat limited in how much we can support concession, we aim to do our best. Please consider seriously if you need a concession ticket and that if you take one and don’t need it the potential impact this might have of someone more in need.
