Pleasure as Spiritual Practice
with Mark Michaels and Patricia Johnson
Tuesday, April 22, 8:30 pm

Most spiritual traditions -- both Eastern and Western -- take a dim view of pleasure. In Tantra, however, pleasure can be used as a tool for spiritual growth. Consciousness is the key to transforming mundane pleasure into something more profound. In this workshop, we will explore both the theory and practice of bringing consciousness to pleasurable experience and help you begin exploring your pleasure more fully and intentionally.

$35 per person, $55 per couple. The cost of this class includes one copy of the new book Partners in Passion: A Guide to Great Sex, Emotional Intimacy and Long-Term Love by Mark Michaels and Patricia Johnson (couples rate includes only one book). Register here!


Couples Massage Class
with Kari L. Nabbefeld, LMT
Saturday, May 10, 10 am
NOTE TIME- THIS IS A MORNING CLASS!
Learn how to improve intimacy and reduce stress with your partner through massage. In this class we will cover the basics of Swedish Massage, and learn ways to work massage into your everyday life, creating opportunities for you and your partner to escape from stress and open lines of communication through the power of touch. Together we can develop a routine and establish dialogue useful when speaking with your partner about touch. Both partners will take turns giving and receiving massage with Kari's guidance. At the end of this class you will receive materials that you can consult at home.

Kari L. Nabbefeld is a Licensed Massage Therapist, and a Graduate of Fox Valley School of Massage in Appleton, Wisconsin. As a freelance therapist she dose not work at a spa but rather works events around Milwaukee ranging from small parties to workplace or festival events. Passionate about prenatal, infant and sports massage, she is available for individual appointments.

$50 per couple. Pre-registration required. There will be no tables for this class, so please bring a yoga mat, thick beach towel or blanket. Bring your favorite massage oil, or use one provided by Kari. Register here!
