Barbara Carrellas Workshops

About the Workshops

 Barbara Carrellas leads people through an innovative and inspiring exploration of sensual and sexual fulfillment. Many men and women long for a deeper and more fulfilling relationship with their bodies. Most of our education, religions and social conditioning have taken us out of our bodies and away from the natural connection between our sexual and spiritual selves. This series of workshops can show you how the gift of your sexuality can help you access the power to step beyond old, limiting beliefs and fears and into an ongoing erotic dance with life.

Barbara Carrellas and Chester Mainard are two of the most experienced and enlightened sex pioneers working in the U.S. today. This series of workshops offers all women and men, regardless of sexual orientation or sexual history, the opportunity to reclaim and reawaken the spiritual dimension of their sexuality.

The Erotic Awakening for Women

Weekend Workshop

This transformative two day workshop is a space for a powerful circle of women to come together in healing and in safety. It is a sanctuary in which you can learn to love your body for the strong beautiful temple it is and reclaim your sexuality as playful, sacred, energizing and transformative personal power.

Each participant will experience giving and receiving the Body Awakening Massage, a powerful and pleasurable technique which awakens the whole body to the healing and spiritual elements of erotic energy. The emphasis of this massage will be on receiving--allowing pleasure, accepting love, being given a time and space that is yours alone. This depth of receiving and relaxation can take you to new heights and lengths of pleasure, can heal past sexual traumas, can take you deeper into yourself and stretch the limits of who you think you are.

Give yourself the gift of a weekend that will transform the way you experience yourself, your body, your sexuality and your life.

Sacred Sex for Women

Weekend Workshop

This is the perfect introductory weekend for women who want to liberate their sexuality by expanding their view of sex. This weekend we will explore sex as a doorway to expanded states of awareness, as an art form and as magic. It is designed for women who have longed for "something more" and wish to unite their sexuality and their spirituality.

We will discover and embrace our inner "wicked women" archetypes, perform rituals to release guilt and shame, replace negative body images with appreciation of our bodies as temples, learn about breath and energy orgasms, experience sex as meditation and discover the empowerment of conscious selfloving. Using simple, powerful sexercises and breathing techniques drawn from Tantric, Taoist and Native American traditions as well as sensual toys such as feathers and vibrators, we'll learn to integrate the erotic and the spiritual, attempting to live as if we were making love every moment of the day.

This workshop is for women of all ages and all sexual preferences. Come back to yourself as you learn the power of your sexual energy and how it can be transformed into creative, healing, spiritual energy. Learn the secrets, feel the power and enjoy the pleasures of Sacred Sex.

Strict guidelines and health protocols are adhered to.

 

Fun with Breath and Energy Orgasms - For Women

An Evening Workshop

 

Could it really be possible to have an orgasm with your clothes on and without being touched by yourself or anyone else? Can you really reach ecstasy just by breathing? This evening we'll explore the unlimited possibilities of orgasm, particularly the vast range of orgasms which lie beyond those achieved by genital stimulation. The perfect evening for those women who: have never had an orgasm, have always longed for "something more", want to unite their sexuality with their spirituality, want to get the most out of their sexuality when they do not have a sex partner and want extended, more full-bodied orgasms.

The Pleasure Principle for Conscious Relationships

An Evening Workshop For Men & Women

Facilitated by Barbara Carrellas & Chester Mainard

 

Can you imagine your life filled with love, pleasure and sensuality? Would you like to learn to have a more blissful, ecstatic life through the gifts of your sexuality? How much pleasure can you accept?

This evening will focus on ecstatic techniques for empowering relationships. We will learn how simple techniques such as breath, laughter, ritual, presence, and conscious connection can change the patterns that lead us into dysfunctional relationships, expand our concept of gender roles, help us transcend fears of intimacy and keep relationships vibrant and loving.

The Pleasure Principle honours pleasure as sacred, as healing, as a way of life, as a path to spiritual growth and as a process in which we can learn to love ourselves and create positive change in our lives and our relationships. Learn how pleasure can be combined with healing and spirituality to bring more love into your life. Learn to love yourself and the world around you by letting your body, your mind and your spirit bring you pleasure.
