Touching Desire (Level 1): The Art of Pleasure

Sara & Thomas Stout
Sara & Thomas Stout


Do you wish to unlock your body’s natural ability for more ecstasy?

Would you like to learn how to exchange pleasurable, whole-body touch?

Enjoy an experiential weekend dedicated to exploring sensuality, sexuality and awakening your desire through the Tantric art of touch!

Join Sara and Thomas Stout, Certified SkyDancing Tantra teachers this Labor Day Weekend, in this transformative seminar that weaves together sensuality and spirituality. Whether you attend partnered or solo, you’ll discover touch as a doorway to enlightenment.

  • Learn extensive tools to enliven your capacity for ecstasy.
  • Fine tune your skills in the art of Tantric touch
  • Learn sensuous, healing, and pleasurable whole-body touch
  • Integrate spirituality and physical pleasure 
  • Open new doors to the heart, and allow more pleasure and trust in your relationships.
  • Develop true alignment with your desires.
  • Have fun!

Employing conscious touch, ritual, and communication as the foundations of this sensuous weekend seminar, you’ll experience deepened connection with yourself as the difference between self and other dissolves into a harmonious flow of ecstatic energies. 

How is Touching Desire a “tantric” practice and differs from other forms of touch such as massage? In a traditional massage, we recline on the table and receive, entranced. Touching Desire (Level 1) includes interactive elements such as eye contact, communication, breath awareness, sensory play, and energy movement along with touching the whole body. 

Get more of what you want and discover new and a wider range of pleasure. Come away with lifelong tools to increase intimacy and connection with yourself and others.

This exploration of desire through touch is for everyone regardless of how easily you feel desire. These practices support you in knowing what is pleasurable and how to feel more with your entirety.

Open to everyone. No previous experience necessary.

All genders, orientations, and relationship configurations are welcome. Those who arrive partnered may work together exclusively during the workshop or with others if they wish. If you identify as feminine, watch this video: how does SkyDancing Tantra support you?

Touching Desire (Level 1): The Art of Pleasure is designed for people who are ready for more aliveness, love, and consciousness in their relationships and intimate partnerships.
