“Devi is a sexual educator with the gift of helping women to get in touch with the most sacred part of themselves. She has an incredible ability to make women feel safe as they explore their cultural programming about their bodies and their sexuality. Her teachings can help transform a woman’s relationship to her body and her sexuality. In addition, they can help transform a woman’s sexual relationship with a loved one. I applaud Devi for her work, her workshops, her book, and her courage to step out of the cultural norm and into a sacred healing path that can profoundly increase the quality of women’s lives.”

Why I Do This…

Let’s face it, sexuality is an area where we all could use a little help.

We receive very little education in our culture about our body and our pleasure, beyond the basic mechanical and anatomical instruction.

Just like everyone else growing up in this culture, I was largely unaware of the powerful healing and transformative effects of human sexuality. It wasn’t until I began consciously exploring my sexual and sensual pleasure, that I began to feel more empowered in other areas of my life.

I had spent most of my adult life in a state of dormancy- profoundly impacted by deep, unrecognized core wounding, stemming from early childhood trauma. This wounding operated below my conscious mind, and therefore I was completely unaware of the effect that it had upon my sense of Self.

These subconscious/unconscious “patterns” held me tight in the grip of self-denial, lack of self-worth, and fear of self-expression. And yet, that was the state of being which I considered to be “normal.” This is the state of existence which many people consider to be normal, experiencing just a mere fraction of their personal potential.

For me, freedom from this state of mind became possible only when I began engaging my sexuality with conscious intention and a sense of sacredness.

It was through healing my relationship to my sexual self, that I was able to uncover and begin healing the trauma/wounding, which had prevented me from being fully integrated and “whole” as a human being.

It was through accessing my sexual “pleasure potential” (i.e. the 11 different orgasms!) that I have been able to access my personal potential, and I believe that this is true for every human being.

I believe that only through consciously delving into the shadows surrounding our sexual fears, wounds, pains and pleasure will we become fully healthy, whole, and integrated as individuals, and eventually as a species.

Why Work With Me?

I have devoted my entire adult life to studying the “essence” that infuses all of life through meditation, Tantra-Yoga, Sensual Dance and Compassionate Communication. I “get off” on exploring that point of divine union –where sexuality, spirituality, and personal growth intersect.

I was a monk for 10 years, a stripper, a model, an actor, an organic gardener, and a student of natural health and alternative medicine. I have studied Ayurveda, Yoga, several styles of Dance including West African, Belly Dance, Ballet, Modern, and Jazz. I have had extensive training in Non-Violent Communication as taught by Marshall Rosenberb, since 2005, and have been a meditation instructor and workshop facilitator since 2000.

I am an Author, Radio Show Personality, Certified Tantric Healer, Certified Tibetan Tantra™ Educator , and Co-Founder of Tibetan Tantra™ Sexual Education. I am a qualified Tantrika of the Shangpa Kagyu Lineage of Vajrayana Tibetan Buddhismand one of the first 2 people in North America qualified to teach the Secret Tibetan 5 Element Sexual Tantras. 

I have accomplished more in my life than I ever expected, and it is all a result of practicing Tibetan Tantra.

I am honored to share with you some of the most powerful, lineage based, authentic Tantric sexual & non-sexual teachings available today, blended with Taoist sexual yoga, Compassionate Communication and Erotic Dance. 

As a survivor of sexual and physical trauma, I also call upon my own experience of sexual healing & personal transformation, to support and guide you through the process of  reclaiming your Sexual Self.

My goal is to give you the tools and support you need to awaken, heal, and transform your life in absolutely every way- sexually, emotionally and spiritually!
