"A holistic approach to relationship harmony through the secrets of sacred sex" Catherine Wood
Duration: 1.5 Hours
FOR PERTH CUSTOMERS ONLY (Zoom or Phone Sessions Available)
Taking a different approach to relationship harmony'
Have you tried main stream counselling and your relationship is still the same?
Is your relationship in need of a tune up?
Would you like to take your relationship from the ordinary to the extraordinary?
Tantric Relationship Counselling offers a different outlook at relationship harmony rather than the clinical western approach where you both sit for the duration of your session and talk about your relationship issues.
In this unique session, I combine both main stream counselling with the teachings of Tantra Philosophy. It is an extremely powerful combination that applies both discussion and practical exercises because it is not often just enough to “talk” to resolve any issues in your relationship, the practice of Tantra helps you to fully heal, understand, forgive and let go. It is a whole new way at looking at yourself and your partner that brings a deeper understanding of communication and sacred love.
Your partner is your "mirror", a mirror to show you more of who you are from your highest point to your lowest. Real intimacy starts with being able to see both these dualities in each other and sharing with loving gentle kindness "the blind spots" that hold you bound to old patterns and imprints which can continue to sabotage growth and deeper connection. To merge together deeper requires a surrender and willingness to shed away what holds you back from being your true and intimate self.
It would be nice to think there is such a thing as the 'perfect' relationship but unfortunately there isn’t, this is because the dynamics of relationships are a Pandora’s box, containing many facets from communication all the way through to touch, intimacy and sex. Relationships have to be continually worked at, nourished with patience and devotion otherwise the years go by and before long stagnation and feelings of not being cherished, appreciated and honoured creep in.
What is Tantra?
Tantra is a philosophy that has been around for hundreds of years, it is not a religion in any sense, but more a way of life. The aspect of sex is primal and instinctual, however Tantra teaches that there is a sacred quality of union and of love that should be in the heart and essence of every relationship, however it is seldom taught or spoken about.
What will happen in your session?
Counselling – The first part of your session is to discuss why you are seeking relationship therapy and any issues that you wish to heal or perhaps get clarity on and for some couples, this could mean just learning the Sacred Love teachings of Tantra. I then help you to go deeply into the blind spots of what you are both not seeing in each other and also in yourself and using counselling techniques that will assist you both to navigate your relationship from a completely different perspective.
- The roles of masculine and feminine energy, what a man needs and what a woman needs in a relationship
- How to and when to create sacred space and quality time together
- How to forgive the past and be present in the now
- What are your core wounds and does your partner see them and more importantly understand you and know what to do for you when you are in your wound?
- Are you both compatible together? Do you have similar desires? We explore techniques to get you both on the same page
- The five love languages and how they relate to “Intimacy”
Creating Sacred Space – The second half of your session is sitting opposite your partner on either chairs or a futon fully clothed. This is a deep inner process of connection, “wiping the slate clean”, letting go of the past and being receptive to change. I then guide you through practices and exercises to achieve honest and clear communication, sharing your desires not only in your relationship but also your goals.
As you are guided through these sacred Tantric practices, the room is darkened with candles and I sit at the other end of the room with either closed eyes or looking down so that you and your partner can really feel connected and immersed in your sacred space without the clinical feel approach.
A few of the Tantric practices that maybe included in your session:
