We know how it is. We have struggled with relationships, just like you.
And we have found a LOT of ways to make our lives together very happy.
The modules described below are a sampling of dozens of sticky spots that we have encountered, prevailed over, and shared with our clients for the past nine years. Check out the sex geek, and pure fun ones too!
Our methodology: Presentation, discussion, modeling, guided practice, and review, supported by compassion, empathy, and humor. All Modules are led by Love and Sex Mastery founders Cheryl Good and Seva Khalsa in our dedicated Sedona retreat space.
Our unique format is an immersion in the relationship topics of your choosing from our Module Menu. Your relationship goals are our priority. We can help you progress from the sticky to the sublime, supported at all times by the transformational setting of Sedona, Arizona.
The first evening of your retreat is an introduction to your customized retreat, including one module. Each day's instruction is a two hour morning session and a two hour afternoon session. We dive into the the modules you desire most, devoting one time block per module. If we discover that your pace is faster, we go crazy, and add additional modules.
Your retreat package includes: Lodging, King or Queen bedroom with a private bath, access to a full kitchen, private back yard, outdoor patio, and chlorine-free hot tub. Meals are self serve. Sedona is a resort town with many dining options and a Whole Foods Market within 3 miles.

Right or Happy?
We are all attached to our own thoughts, desires, expectations, and emotions. It can feel like life or death when a partner challenges those attachments. We delve deeply into the meanings that harden attachments, and listen to our partner's view of "right," while we breathe deeply to stay calm.
The Blame Game
It is easy to blame your partner when you are upset. You hate the pain you feel, and want to get rid of it as fast as possible. Unloading pain onto your partner comes with a cost, however. We give you a pain exam, and diagnosis. We help the pain find alternative ways to be expressed. Such a reframe can quickly de-escalate conflict.
Orgasm is great, and we want you to have awesome ones. But wondering whether its going to happen or not is self defeating. We suggest changing the focus to pleasure, then exploring the infinite variety of pleasure sources available, as a couple, and solo. Practicing pleasure leads to more frequent, and more easily attained pleasure, including the pleasure of orgasm.
Can't Slow Down
(Meditation for Non-Meditators) You've heard that meditation is " good for you" but the image of sitting with your thoughts provokes panic. Let us guide you in simple, reproducible- at-home practices for a relaxed body and mind. Additional motivation: Sex organ blood-flow begins through the parasympathetic nervous system. (The relaxation response)
The Amazing G Spot
Hell yes, it exists!! We illustrate our joy of G Spot pleasure. Learn how to find it, and what it can do, including the urge to ejaculate. The G Spot is an integral part of Neo Tantric practice, and a focus of somatic psychological healing techniques. A lot of potential is packed within this vital location of a woman's body.
Choose From Your Module Menu
He likes sex at night. She likes it in the morning. She wants him to initiate, but that feels like a burden to him. He is stimulated by porn and she is turned off. That's OK. There will always be some mismatch. Whew! The starting point is finding ways to not be automatically resistant to our partner's turn ons, then negotiating boundaries and trade offs, for mutual satisfaction.
Bored in the Bedroom
The rush of new relationship energy is inspiring in and out of the bedroom, yet can settle into the predictable. We explore all the ways bodies can be loved, externally and internally, and how satisfying it is when the full extent of passion and pleasure is expressed. Can be jump started!
Giving and Receiving in couple life can often feel unbalanced. Unspoken needs can lead to resentment of the other. We investigate needs, digging to flush them out with precise exactitude. Giving exactly and perfectly can be way easier than imagined. And helped by getting something in return.
The Weight of Seriousness
No one has to teach a child how to play, yet as adults our playfulness is often submerged.
We take ourselves very seriously, including our partnership roles. But seriousness is a mindset that can be adjusted. The practice of focusing on the present moment, and releasing fears, can free up a bottomless well of creativity that can be used for verbal or physical interaction.
Powerful Prostate Massage
Cock Worship is a great way to warm up a man's body, in preparation for sacred engagement with the power of his prostate. Super intimate sensations can lead to unexpectedly spiritual transformations. And/or increase sexual variety, and get him irresistibly into his body.
Resistance to Intimacy
Intimacy is sharing sexual, mental, and emotional truths about ourselves. Expressing those truths to our partner can feel scary, since the hidden part may be judged. We support the beautiful authentic parts of both partners because something magical happens when the burden of isolation is laid down. Vulnerability is where the juice of relationship is fostered.
The expression of anger, jealousy, disgust, withdrawal, and fear, can feel overwhelming and divisive. But it doesn't have to be that way. Through education and practice, the deed of emotional situations can be overcome. Emotions are just a temporary means of releasing a build up. They can be expressed without damaging either partner and can lead to a closer connection.
We've Got a Dead Body
The body does not lie. Over-scheduled, over-stressed bodies tell the story through sleeplessness, day-time fatigue, loss of focus, anxiety and disconnection from our partner. Rationally, we want to feel excitement and aliveness in our bodies, but too often feel discouragement. We believe there is always some form of energy buried within. It is just a matter of finding it.
