Join the next Self pleasure Challenge and learn what true self love means


Imagine your very own tropical paradise

Close your eyes…. Breathe….

Can you feel the warm air on your skin?

Can you hear the birds singing…?

Let the lush rainforest  envelope your senses

There is nothing to do, nowhere to go.

There is just you, and your partner

And THIS moment

Leaving the pressures of your daily life behind,
You are both just fully here,

Feeling totally connected, awakened and alive

The beautiful Gymea Eco Retreat Centre at the base of Mount Warning in the Byron Bay hinterland will be our home while we delve into a journey of delicious intimacy, heart opening and sensual exploration.

After offering sold out Yoniverse workshops to hundreds of people all over Australia, we are excited to be bringing ten couples to a secluded retreat for four days of powerful practices that will breathe bliss, connection and new life into your relationship.

We’d love you to join us!

And here’s a little taste of what will happen…

You will have a chance to slow down, deeeeeeply relax and let go of all stress and tension.

You will be guided through experiences and rituals to explore deeper intimacy together – and you’ll receive lots of practices and tools to take home and bring into your relationship.

The whole retreat will be experienced-based.  There will not be too much boring theory or long talking processes. You will actually be doing the practices so you have an embodied experience and create new pathways for intimacy and relating sexually.

You’ll touch each other – a lot! We’ll share the sacred photo-1468430780671-24ceef3b824dart of conscious touch through Tantric massage and other touch exploration.

You will awaken the ecstatic potential of your body and your sexuality.

You will have the opportunity to discover your partner in a whole new way

You will experience what true receiving feels like – we often don’t know how to fully just receive!

A whole day will be dedicated to the woman receiving… Yes ladies, you will be melting!

And a whole day will be dedicated to the men receiving…. Be prepared to experience your body in a whole new way!

You will understand the power of connecting your heart and sexuality.

You will go home feeling more alive, juiced up and connected than ever, alive and ready to take on the world!

“Elise & Bonnie hold a very sacred, precious container that is at once playful, deep and enlightening.”


a4dc566bce9414124c135bf619e6e819Tantric Massage will be a large component of the retreat – there will be demonstrations, practices and rituals incorporating this beautiful style of intimate bodywork.  Our intention is to provide a space for you to fully embody this practice so you can bring it into your intimate life together.


Tantric Massage between lovers is one of the most powerful practices we know of – a bodywork modality that encompasses conscious touch, energetic activation, polarity play, moving sexual energy through the body, awakening the heart and fully seeing and honouring your partner. Yummmm!


After receiving a Tantric massage, people often say that they feel sensations they’ve never felt before, and they experienced their sexuality in a whole new way. Receiving this type of bodywork is like floating on a cloud – feeling tingles all over your body, all stress, tension and contraction dissolve and you can drop into a whole new awareness of your body and yourself as a sexual being.


For women, it’s an amazing opportunity to let go of pleasing and doing, to just receive and be honoured as a woman, to surrender completely and feel her feminine essence. Many women have had less than respectful experiences with men in the past, so receiving Tantric massage from a loving partner can be a deeply healing and rejuvenating experience. Yoni (vagina) massage is part of the massage – a very gentle external and internal vaginal massage to release emotional blockages and tensions, sensitise and awaken the whole Yoni (there are many areas to discover, not just the clitoris!) and activate orgasmic potential. It can support the woman receiving to discover new aspects of her sexuality and Yoni, which naturally makes her a better lover and a happier partner!


For men, receiving Tantric massage is a chance to let go of the attachment to any kind of performance or goal orientation and to just relax and receive, to feel his whole body as a sexual organ – not just the genitals. It’s all about deeeeeply relaxing and being nurtured by powerful feminine energy. In this style of Tantric massage, the woman gives the massage using her whole body, including breasts, which is a profound experience that can often be quite erotic as well as relaxing and nourishing. Lingam (penis) massage is part of the massage – a loving and honouring massage of the penis and whole genital area to bring more sensation, relax any tension and blockages and awaken sexual energy in the whole body.


“I just wanted to pass on my sincere gratitude for the help you have given me and the knowledge and power of the Yoni learnings.

This morning I explored the use of the techniques you taught on my wife.

It was quite the passionate sensual affair.

Sparing you the obvious details – she was overwhelmed with sensation, to the point where she cried, released, cried some more, then laughed… and the world was a better place.

I will be eternally grateful for what you teach!”- Paul

A special note…

Some people we’ve spoken to are feeling a little nervous about being naked in front of others. So we wanted to be really clear – All partnered practices will be just with your own partner and you are fully supported and guided by Bonnie, Elise and their assistants during the experience. Each couple will have their own cosy nest area for the weekend where you’ll be exploring together. There will be nudity just for the Tantric massage practices, however each couple will have their own area in the room and the space is large enough that you’ll feel a sense of spaciousness. So, yes, a relaxed attitude towards nudity is required for this retreat, but all nudity will be very tasteful and just during the massage practices!
