Garden of Love – Couples year long course

Come and journey deep in the beautiful, wild and sometimes challenging landscape of intimate relationship to discover what is possible when we take intimacy and hold it in the context of something sacred. 

This training is run once every 3 years and is designed specifically for heterosexual couples who seek to explore their relationship as a potent gateway to deeper love, freedom and transformation. The yearlong program offers safe holding, tools and powerful teachings for navigating your relationship. It is a rare opportunity to work more deeply on your relationship with the support of Jewels and Mark who run the entire program together. As a couple they bring their own experiences along with 20 years of experience of working with couples. This course is an extended transformational journey spread over a year. It’s designed specifically for heterosexual couples who wish to deeply explore their relationship as a catalyst for total awakening in deep ecstatic loving intimacy

“…Jewels has an amazing way to see things for you and your partner and give such wonderful guidance. Also the huge blessing of watching other couples processes feels amazing and inspiring and healing to our own relationship…..”
It takes place at the EarthHeart centre in the Forest of Dean, a dedicated centre for couples’ work, and is the only training of its kind in the UK. Beautiful rooms, beautiful land, delicious food, all nestled deep in wild nature to inspire and support your exploration and weaving together of all aspects of relationship from the psychological to the spiritual, physical, sexual and emotional.

“You don’t need another human being to make you whole or your life complete – but lets be honest, Having your wounds kissed by someone who doesn’t see them as disasters in your Soul, but rather cracks to pour their love into, is one of the most healing thing in the world”– Emery Allen  

All relationships have so much potential to take us to expanded states of freedom, love and aliveness. This is what this training is in service to.
All relationships also have their ups and downs. It’s a crazy notion that we have been led to believe that our relationship is meant to just run along smoothly, to be naturally amazing the whole time and never feel difficult. We have been taught in the West to believe that seeking outside support for relationship challenges is a sign of weakness and failure. We believe quite the contrary, it is indeed a wise and mature relationship that seeks guidance at times to either navigate the difficult aspects or indeed to take it to new levels of potential.

Our couples programme aims to change all this and bring us out of the shame and into the light of love and joy with the ups and downs of intimacy and relating.

It is not offering a few quick tricks to stick temporary plasters on something that hurts. It offers a pathways to the deepest wildest, most potent intimacy possible. Held within a sacred context, sexuality and freedom entwine in the heart to create a truly exiting vision.
There is a saying that says ‘it takes a community to bring up a child’. We believe that with the support of a community of conscious couples, journeying alongside each other, so much more is possible. A container of trust and continuity is created so as to be able to hold with kindness and gentleness our human wounds that we carry around love. This support along with the expertise of Mark and Jewels is a potent vessel for optimum relating. 

For this reason the course is designed so that you travel with the same group of couples committed over the time. It offers enough space and guidance for each couple to learn what they need for the relationship to be the best it can be.

PLEASE NOTE: During the courses couples are committed to being with each other and you work solely with your partner during the exercises. You are guaranteed a respectful and professional environment which ensures your personal agreed values as a couple for the relationship and these are honoured at all times. There is no ‘partner swapping’ or sexual activity in the workshop space. You work solely with your own partner only. Any sexually intimate practices that may be offered during the courses are given to you to practice in the privacy of your bedroom. 

Intimate relationship. We all long for it. What is it we need for it to happen and to be sustained after the kids, the work, the pressures of life all come knocking at the door for attention?  


  • Is your relationship good but you have a longing to explore deeper together?
  • Do you long for mindblowing sacred sex and tender heartful vulnerable intimacy?
  • Would you like some hands-on tools, professional support and new inspiration ? 
  • Would you like to recover some lost magic between you? 
  • Are you best friends but with little or no sexual spark?
  • Are you so weighed down with practical day to day business that you struggle to make time for each other?
  • Are you kind of just ‘plodding along’ in a comfortably numb co-existence?
  • Are you bickering and getting on each others nerves more than you would like?
  • Do you find yourself in a power struggle and regularly fighting?
  • Would you like the communication between you to work better ?
  • Would you like your longings met more often, but you don’t know how to make it happen?

The training follows the 11 Gateways to optimum relationship. A key aspect to the flourishing of your relationship is not only the guidance from the teachers but also the community of couples with whom you journey. This for many is a new and strange concept, as we have been brought up with shame around intimacy and a sense of failure if things seem less than perfect but the truth is that with support relationships are far more sustainable and last longer that when we try to carry the challenges on our own.

Places are limited so as to make sure that each couple has a deep and supported experience. If previous years’ experience is anything to go by, this training will be sold out soon. If you are interested or have any questions, do please get in touch.

“This was the most beautiful, healing experience for me personally, and for our relationship. It helped us to explore our love and sexual connection in ways we had not thought possible. After years of struggle, and endless personal and couples counselling, we moved almost without any effort into a place of greater sexual openness, love and freedom. It has also deepened our emotional and spiritual connection and was the most profoundly effective and powerful personal development course I have ever attended. ‘Life changing’ for once, would be no exaggeration.”

“Your teaching was authentic, powerful and refreshing. To do a training where the facilitator was so honest and egoless was a real delight and I felt very safe.”

“I’ve done quite a number of workshops with different teachers, but Jewels’ couples workshops have been the deepest, most powerful and beautiful experiences I’ve had so far. I am so grateful to the new start you have given my relationship.”
