Learn to play the 3 Minute Game and notice how safe and exciting touch becomes. The game gives you a structure to tune into your body, your desires, ask for what you want, and respond to other’s requests. Playing it you gain confidence, your body relaxes and feels more pleasure.
Often we say ‘no’ to intimate touch because we are afraid things won’t go our way–or spin out of control–so we often stop before we start…and end up feeling lonely and touch-starved…again. In this workshop you will learn one-way, permission-based touch that translates into choice, trust and safety–and ultimately, more and better touch for a lifetime.
Players of the game often remark, “time stopped, I could feel more, I didn’t have to worry about guessing or getting it right, everything slowed down.” In this context, you may be surprised how comfortable it is to give and receive touch from other participants. In just a few rounds of the game, your performance anxiety and fear may melt away and your natural curiosity and self-expression emerge.
You learn to give and receive with a 100% full heart–and why ‘maybe’ is a ‘no’ in this game. Finally, you give and get just what you want…nothing more or less. Playing this game takes your intimacy skills to the next level and opens new doors. Workshop activities are sensual, not sexual, and clothes remain on.
This workshop is excellent for teachers, counselors, therapists, sex educators and anyone desiring safe and satisfying touch. You can play the game with children, seniors, clients, students and yes, lovers!

One-on-one coaching special with Charla, 1 hr/$100
The couples I know who keep love and desire alive over time have a great deal of separateness, differentiation, and privacy built into their relationships. They enjoy the novelty. In sex, novelty is more than a new toy, it’s being confident enough to bring forth hidden parts of ourselves. Mystery is more than a new place, it’s looking with new eyes. Sex is more than doing things to each other, it’s transcending the personal (ego) and entering the Universal (cosmic). Our current crisis of desire is really a crisis of the imagination. Come and imagine your sex life to the next level with me. Schedule Today!

Starting with group warm up activities and ending with couples massaging each other, learn from a Pro new ways to enliven your body, deepen rapport, and cultivate trust.
Receiving a Sensual Massage: Relaxing into Safety and Surrender
Both partners will take turns giving and receiving a sensual massage on each other. The receiver learns to notice, feel and experience their own body instead of taking care of the giver. The Receiver losses need to perform or “give back” during a massage and opens new channels of pleasure and body awareness through breath and focus.
Giving a Sensual Massage: Prolonging Pleasure and Connection
As Giver you hold the container for the receiver’s safety and surrender. The Giver learns techniques to stay present and holds space for whatever experience the receiver is having–without needing to ‘get somewhere’. Both giver and receiver learn to focus on the journey instead of a destination. You’ll take home ways to enhance joy, comfort, and heartfelt connection.

What others say:
I learned more in a couple hours than in ten years of marriage. Robert, 37
I’m 54 years old and you can read all you want, you can talk to other men all you want, but hearing it from two expert women and practicing the strokes makes all the difference. John
I learned so much about how to talk with my lover about the touch I want. I learned that I can get what I want and feel connected to him at the same time. Charla’s a master at making hard things to talk about seem easy. I’m so thankful. Ashley
