Couples Intimacy retreat

We aren’t about candles and chocolate…our mission is longevity, happiness, mastery and artistry… if you are looking to reconnect and create deeper commitment with your partner, then you have come to the right place. Our couples intimacy retreat has been created for couples that wish to fully focus on each other, and take away some lasting relationship building tools.
Our cosy, intimate retreat is located facing Mount Te Aroha (The Mountain of Love) in a peaceful, rural environment surrounded by gardens, fruit trees and farm animals. It is the perfect place to unplug from the world, and refresh while reigniting your passion for one another. With our down to earth, fun loving guidance, you may explore and creatively integrate the art of Tantra, Eroticism and Conscious Sexuality into your relationship.
The main intention during your stay with us at our Couples Intimacy Retreat is to strengthen, enhance and evolve your existing knowledge base around touch, communication, sexuality, and intimacy as a couple and to create a stronger bond of open hearted, non judgemental acceptance of each other.
Life can get very busy and stressful at times, what with building a career and raising a family, that it is not hard to lose that intimate connection with your partner.
Making love, may have lost its intensity and passions may have fizzled out. Our bodies change, and so do our needs. What turned you on about each other when you first met, has most likely changed too.
wHAT ABOUT FANTASIES?
If you are honest with yourself, you may have had some fantasies that you would have liked to explore, but didn’t have the courage to communicate this desire to your beloved.
Or, you may have a little voice inside of you, wanting more excitement or ecstasy. But not something that will wreck your relationship, like jumping the fence or taking on a lover.
You may just wish for more juiciness, more play and more pleasure.
take time to explore each others desires, find new pathways of pleasure and expand your erotic intelligence, become an Artist of Love
During your stay you will both have time to connect individually with both Pauline and Murray – clients have found our open hearted discussions very helpful and insightful. There will also be the opportunity to create rituals to express your love for each other, as well as receive a Couples Intimacy Massage, where you will both learn how to give each other an ecstatic, body awakening Tantric massage and be guided to master skills, confidence and awareness to become your partner’s ultimate healer and lover.
With our gentle guidance and encouragement, you will both learn how to touch each other with complete presence and communicate your most authentic intimate desires without inhibition or fear of judgement.
WITH THE DEEPENING OF TOUCH, THE HEART EXPANDS…
You may notice holding patterns/belief systems that had previously limited the freedom of the body, mind and spirit, are encouraged to be released, so you may dance freer and live in authenticity.
Imagine yourself and your beloved returning to your life and relationships, more open, renewed, invigorated, empowered and aware of your own juicy, divine life force
Journey with us & explore the many pathways of erotic intelligence... Feast on great food, good tunes, happy vibes and open hearted conversations on sex, love, life, naturism, eroticism, kink and tantra.
- Couples of all genders are most welcome
- Available as single or multi-day stay retreats
- Ask for a personal quotation
- It is important to me that I get to know a little about you both.
- Before booking your retreat, I would like to connect with you and find out about your individual needs as well as your needs as a couple. (Please phone me to make a time to discuss) Please understand that all information shared with me is confidential.
- For our rituals and time together to flow peacefully, it is important that you both wish to participate. Surprising your beloved with a Couples Intimacy Retreat may be your desire, but if it is not his/hers too, you may be destroying, rather than creating something beautiful – So it is very important to be able to communicate openly with your partner.
- As a couple you are not massaged simultaneously, you are “involved” in each session of honouring your partner and/or witnessing them in their experience of receiving pleasure.
- Our massage sessions are very hands on, intimate and erotic experiences – and have been curated to improve your connection and communication with each other.
- They are not intended to be voyeur OR swinging sessions – they can be seen as a Tantric Couples Coaching Sessions, where breathwork, and Kundalini energy is moved around the body.
- You will be guided each step of the way to hold space for each other and create a ritualistic lovemaking experience though touch and open heart space.
The Couples Intimacy retreat - is for you if you need...
Mr & Mrs X, experience of the Couples Intimacy Retreat...
This morning I rang for a catch up with Pauline, I know that phone conversation never goes as it would with any other person. When Pauline asks, “how’s life”, what she is really meaning is, “have you had good orgasms lately to release the endorphins that you need for healing”.
This might be a funny way to start a conversation, but once you get to know Pauline and Murray, it’s not that funny at all and you really do find yourself opening up about how you are feeling and also getting a small lecture, a friendly one, but a lecture none the less! “HAVE MORE TOUCH, USE YOUR VIBRATOR, RELEASE THE ENDORPHINS WITH AN ORGASM”
Tell me, who else in the world would tell you that you need to orgasm more…… and also tell you if you can’t orgasm with your husband, then do it alone while he is at work and the kids are at school?
Now, I have some pretty serious body issues, physically and mentally. I am a size 20 and dread looking in the mirror. I have not been abused in any way at any time in my life, so I do wonder why I have the issues regarding sex, touch and intimacy. Maybe I was brought up too proper?? And it was never spoken about or was told to cover up? I don’t know….
What I do know, and Pauline will bring this up in me whenever we talk, is that I need to be touched more often, I need to be played with and it needs to be fun!
A while ago, we had a session with Pauline, and also Murray this time. It was a little strange for us as a couple as we have never done anything like this before. First was my husband’s turn. Although he very much enjoyed being blindfolded and touched he couldn’t reach the climax, but Pauline told him that is fine, and he enjoyed the mystery of the situation in the safe haven of Pauline’s rooms in Te Aroha. The room was all set up beautifully. Candles, comfort and the scene set for touch and healing.
For me, putting the head phones on with lovely music and the blind fold was so exciting! And I can honestly say having a six handed massage was a first for me! But WOW! It was incredible! Pauline taught my husband (Mr X) how to touch me and how to pleasure me.
A range of emotions then came of course, as I had hardly laid bare for my husband like that and now I was not only laying bare for him, but also Murray and Pauline! It was exciting, frightening, exhilarating and terrifying, but most of all it was just pure amazing pleasure!
Having my breasts massaged by four hands while someone else was massaging my inner thighs was just sensory overload, but in the best way possible!
Murray and Pauline, you keep doing what you are doing. The way you are helping couples and individuals is invaluable. Conventional therapies don’t work for everyone, and yes what you do is not conventional. But who can say they went to their therapist and came out with full body jelly and an incredible climax and release. I have now done both counselling and Pauline’s therapy, and I can tell you which I would prefer going forward! And it will be the one that gives me emotional and physical pleasure at the same time!
Love your work beautiful people, see you soon xxxoooxxx

What You Can Expect Every Time...
It is quite normal to feel vulnerable when receiving any kind of massage therapy. As a practitioner, I am acutely aware of the need to make my clients feel comfortable. I pride myself on having an easy going, non-judgmental manner that hopefully, puts people at ease quite quickly. I am sure you will love the experience of freedom that bodywork brings about.
This will depend on the session chosen. Therapeutic and Sacred sessions are full clothed. Certain full body massage/loving touch/mini-surrender or the longer tantric sessions that require two way touch or skin on skin contact for deeper intimacy may require a naturist approach. However the options will be discussed with you before the session begins.
Full Service (sexual intercourse) is not a service that is included in our practice. However we do believe that you may have a most enjoyable, liberating and fun time receiving the session that is created for you.
Mindful touch and total presence is encouraged during any full body massage/loving touch/mini-surrender or tantric session. However each person involved in the session (both client/s and therapist/s) will be encouraged to speak consciously about their personal needs/boundaries/fears/desires prior to the session commencing.
Yoni is a sanskrit word for Vulva/Vagina/Pussy – according to tantric philosophy the Yoni is the source of all that exists and represent Shakti and Devi, the creative force that moves throughout the entire universe.
Lingam is a sanskrit word for Penis – loosely translated as the Wand of Light that channels creative energy and pleasure.
Full Body Massage also known as Loving Touch or Sacred Sensual Massage. This is a sensual awakening session, in which the client is nude, and the entire body is massaged, including in men the penis and prostate and in women, the yoni and breasts. It is a complete massage with every body part included unless specifically requested otherwise.
A Stress Management Massage is a therapeutic bodywork experience that includes the whole body minus the genitals. It does however include breasts and buttocks, as well as reflexology to face, feet and hands and unwinding of the belly.
The Mini-Surrender session is a shorter, entry level sensation building session that allows the client to dip their toes into BDSM whereas the Absolute Surrender Session is a deeper dive that includes role play and significant fetish and fantasy implementation.
No, Kissing is fluid exchange, and a high risk behaviour that could spread STD’s. Therefore it is not encouraged. Unless of course you are attending a Couples Intimacy Session, then kissing is encouraged between people that share a fluid bond.
If you are feeling like it is time to start feeling great again and reconnect with yourself, boost your self confidence as well as your immune system, de-stress and receive some beautiful loving bodywork, I encourage you to call me to book some time to nurture yourself, so that you too may start enjoying your life with bliss, love & anticipation.
