The Intimacy Journey:
Embody Your Divine Connection!
What does it mean to journey as a Tantric Couple?
I have been on the Tantric path while in a committed relationship for over a decade.
The “Intimacy Journey” is a series of 4-workshops I have created based on the teachings from this journey so that you too can have a taste!
The Intimacy Journey series is designed so that you can experience a way of relating that goes beyond the automatic ways. It is based on a map of relating which I have designed to support couples to move through deeper levels of intimacy, based on a sense of deep safety and trust, a commitment to consciousness and love, gratitude, sacredness and freedom. This map guides you on how to move from transactional based and unconscious relating, to living your relationship as Tantric Consorts. This is the way I live and relate in my daily life, and I wish nothing less for you! What I transmit to you, with my beloved Timo’s support, will be practical, life changing, and based on deep lived experiences. It is my honor to offer these journeys to couples who wish to dive deeper together and rise in love together!
Part 1 = Emotional Intimacy
Part 2 = Physical Intimacy
Part 3 = Sexual Intimacy
Part 4 = Soul Intimacy
This is an invitation to deepen your intimacy, heighten your sensual pleasure, expand your love, and further awaken your spiritual consciousness. Our pillars throughout the 4-part journey are: love, consciousness, and sacredness! We will explore the theme of intimacy at the level of emotions, body, sexuality, energy, and soul. This is an empowering, experiential journey, and the practices you are guided through will begin to form part of your “chest of tools and treasures” that you can apply at home on your own and with each other at any time. Included in each part of the series are powerful Tantric rituals, and you will be given Tantric practices to explore during love making at the comfort of your own home. The intention of offering you these practices is to support you to continue to explore together in between the different parts of the journey when you are back at home, in order to deepen and anchor your intimacy and Tantric union at all levels. This is an intensive life-changing journey for you as an individual, for your couple, and for the way you relate with life!
The truth is that it might be easier to walk the Tantric path without committing to a relationship. As Osho has said, it’s like walking on a razor’s edge! Why? Because when you love this deeply and consciously, everything that is not love and that is not conscious will rise to the surface to be seen. It is in our most intimate relationships that our deepest wounds are usually triggered, where we are most likely to project our fears, needs and desires, and where we are most likely to be thrown off our center. For example, jealousy, attachment, control, rage, sadness, fear, the abandonment wound, “I’m not good enough”, and many other such triggers are likely to come up. So this of course makes it more challenging, more complicated, to stay with love and consciousness… AND more rewarding! Walking the Tantric path as a couple means there is no room for projections and ego to thrive. It means being committed to love itself and consciousness itself, and to supporting each other when the other waivers. This then results in greater love for and presence with yourself, and each other, seeing and celebrating each other for who you really are, with deep gratitude for the blessing of being able to walk the Tantric path together.
Many couples sign up for Tantric couples work in order to improve their sex life. What they discover is a whole universe. The commitment to journeying with a partner on the Tantric path can bring incredible amounts of healing and has the potential to quickly dissolve your ego! It can strengthen your inner masculine and feminine, your inner union. It can show you how to use your sexual energy to nourish and empower yourself, manifest your dreams, and commune with existence. It can support you to blossom to your full potential, to awaken, to remember who you really are, to know yourself as a soul, and to know God. Although we come from one source, we usually experience the world through duality. The search for a harmonious relationship is also the search for our original oneness. A Tantric relationship continuously invites you to go beyond duality and separation, and return to wholeness. It is the experience of oneness within yourself, with your partner, with nature, with the divine.
“I’ve come to this belief that, if you show me a woman who can sit with a man in his real vulnerability, in deep fear, and be with him in it, I will show you a woman who, A, has done her work and, B, does not derive her power from that man.
And if you show me a man who can sit with a woman in deep struggle and vulnerability and not try to fix it, but just hear her and be with her and hold space for it, I’ll show you a guy who’s done his work and a man who doesn’t derive his power from controlling and fixing everything.”
For each set of 4-journeys a Facebook group will be created which will include all participants in the journey so you can share with each other about how it is going in between the different modules, your challenges and your victories, and you can pose your questions or request for support from me in particular. I will be available throughout the 4-part journey.
I have participated in, trained in, and taught the Couples Soulmate Journey designed by Mahasatvaa Ananda Sarita. I have also taken part in the couples work offered by Diana Richardson (Puja) and Raj, based on the Barry Long method of “slow sex”, and with Bruce Lyon on the theme of Consorts. Attending Tantric Couples retreats was a powerful investment in myself as an individual, as well as in my relationship.
You have chosen to journey with this partner.
Whether it is a recent union or it has been decades,
your souls have brought you together for a reason:
to support you to remember yourself, become whole, awaken!
In their words…
Actually, more than getting me deep into my relationship, it made me go deeper inside myself. Takih’s tantric “map” for relationships is as useful a guidance for a romantic partnership as for every other relationship, including the relationship with yourself. Her tantric “keys” led me to open new and unpredictable doors in my mind and in my heart. This resulted in making me lighter and happier, as I understood I have many loving and caring options for myself and for my relationships, and that they are ok as long as they come from a place of love, acceptance and awareness. I would recommend everybody to attend one of Takih’s events.Andrea, PortugalMasters student
Thank you Taki'h for your guidance! Beautiful how in such a short time we could get closer and more intimate, more connected. Such beneficial journeys for our relationship! And at the same time these evenings were precious personal journeys, I really could look at what was there with me: my longings and my hindrances.
I appreciate the honesty and authenticity in Takih's and Timo's presence and the way they create and hold space. There was an atmosphere of trust, easiness and simplicity. Takih's guidance was clear - I could feel her experience and knowledge. Taki'h set up the evening with short and profound theory which itself was already very valuable and resonated in my heart. The way she lead us into exercises was very encouraging and supportive. That made it easy to let go and explore. There was no need to be anything or reach anything. Whatever there was, it felt that we were already 'there'.
I'm really looking forward to her workshops as an individual and as a couple. I'm sure I'll find something very valuable with her guidance. Thank you for this opportunity!Kiya, FinlandPractitioner of Alternative Healing & Meditation
To begin with I would like to thank Taki'h and Timo for being so present in your own path, to have the courage to live your passion with such dedication. The honesty and clarity with which you shared your own experiences made a difference for me. It also showed me that this is a way of life, a continuous learning. I learned that Tantra is not mystic hula-hula stuff, it’s a daily practice, actually a very simple one, not easy, but certainly simple.
I love how you were relaxed but professional, how you managed to be direct and assertive but leave everybody comfortable enough to be sharing the space with strangers.
I like that after attending some course I can by myself try it out as much as possible without having the need for another course, and I felt that you had the concern that we could practice on our own later.
Above all, it was a relaxed, cozy, completely friendly. We finished 1 hour later and nobody noticed! That is how comfortable we were, being naked, with strangers less then 2 meters away in all directions. Amazing!!!! And to reinforce that, we even made new friends. How about that!!!
I would actually give a different name to these sessions, as people fear this big name Tantra . I would call it "New skills to become a better human", or, "Find your new self and share it with your partner", or something like that. The lessons I got there with Taki'h and Timo were teachings for life, good reminders of the essence of life, relationships and inner/spiritual wellbeing. Of course, being a better person also means being a better lover.Ricardo, PortugalEntrepreneur
Taki'h is an extraordinary woman of deep and fierce integrity. Having already done a lot of work, both personally and with my partner, there are very few people I would trust to hold us with the depth and sensitivity that we require. Taki'h is one of those few individuals. She held a beautiful space for us and guided us both back to core trauma points in our early childhood, allowing us to see where these unconscious patterns of relating were formed and begin the process of reclaiming our innocence. Working with Taki'h had profound impacts on me that are still revealing themselves, months later. I would not hesitate to recommend Taki'h to anyone looking to deepen their personal explorations across any of the areas in which she works.Rich, AustraliaWriter
When I met Taki'h the first time I got a strong feeling that she really lives the way she teaches. There is this authenticity in her as a result of her own experiences.
In her workshops, she really has the ability to create a safe space to experience and learn. What I really like about the way she teaches is that she doesn't push anything, rather it’s a gentle guidance that lets you perceive on your own.
I loved the couples workshop. It was a great reminder of the importance of gratitude, acceptance, presence, trust and most of all, the freedom to be me. It’s sometimes quite overwhelming to be in a soulmate relationship, the growth really tends to be intense. I wish every couple would take the time and the effort to invest in their relationship through attending these workshops. They don’t teach you how to thrive in a relationship in school. The thing that also really resonated with me in the workshop, was bringing the sacred back into my and our life. Its something that is easily forgotten nowadays but also one of the keys, I think it can change the relationship from a habit to a beautiful journey.
I highly recommend Takih’s workshops to anyone, who is interested in the tantric way of living. Its really a safe space to exploreSaana, FinlandSex Coach & Bodyworker
The feeling I got from Taki'h and Timo is that they really are living the life they teach and wish to share this work with others. Taki'h is a warm and skillful teacher, who has lots of tools to help us evolve and grow in our personal path.
I especially enjoyed some of the powerful movement and breathing exercises we did. It helped me to open up and observe my patterns of contraction, how some things trigger me and I close off my heart and the flow of love.
This kind of work is the best you can do together with your partner - to truly see and meet each other and to learn how to grow together. I'm really looking forward to the next workshops Taki'h will be hosting later on this year!Simo, FinlandEntrepreneur, Yoga and Tantra Practitioner
