There’s something about forbidden fruit. Somehow, it just tastes better than regular fruit.
You know, there’s only one way to get rid of the temptation to eat a banana…
Speaking of which, I am super excited about Steven Barnes coming to town to do some things we’ve never done. I just love playing with brilliant men and we’ve been digging deep into our lives to pull out some luscious treats I can’t wait to share.
Our new I.D.E.A. workshop is about the hunt, lure and flow of seduction. It’s about how we can increase our erotic prowess.
I’d like to tell you more, but I promised I’d wait…
We’re using the January 17 Phoenix Tantra Meet Up to launch it and then test it out the next day with our lucky pleasure victims….Since this is a premier presentation that may never happen again ( I know many of you can’t come to Phoenix) we’re planning to record some of it if we can.
The truth is, I’ve been having such a blast playing with ways to share this erotic material like never before. I do love a good challenge, and Steven certainly is. So let me know if you’d like to be kept in the loop of what’s next, and I’ll be sure to keep you posted.
|Saturday, January 18|
Why not have it all?
Hope you’re having some luscious, fruitful & forbidden erotic ideas… in your heart, your spirit and of yes course, your body too…
The IDEA of increasing your prowess (sexiness in motion) is a matter of learning to become an instinctively healthy, sexy human animal. When your body, mind and heart are all singing the same song, intuitive action becomes the rule of your life.
NEW DATE: MARCH 8. NE Phoenix (Address Provided upon Registration)
PHOENIX TANTRA MEET UP MARCH 7TH
the “Secret Formula”
is a luck magnet. I’m telling you,
when you have clear goals, believe
you can and should do it, are taking
constant action (and of course
noticing your results and making
micro-adjustments, while committing
to constant improvement) and
living every day with an “attitude
of gratitude” you attract allies like
crazy. And most strangely, “luck”
multiplies. Opportunities come to
you with the predictability of American
Express and Visa offers arriving in
the mail if you raise your credit score.
When you don’t need money, people
offer you credit. When you don’t
have a job, you can’t get a job, but
as soon as you have one other
people offer employment. When
you don’t have a relationship you
can’t get one, but as soon as you
have one people mysteriously start
1 Day Workshop with Amara Charles & Steven Barnes
But really, this will not be a mere discussion of concepts to stir your passion… each IDEA is a body experience designed to help you experience the instinctive design of your erotic intelligence.The idea of course is to increase your body intelligence so you can draw on your intuition any time you need it.

Inspired by a remarkable letter written from a son to his father after attending a Quodoushka Sexuality Workshop. He attended by himself (with the blessing of his wife, who also attended a Q).
By Amara Charles
Lets say a father makes his son suffer. But the father doesn’t know he’s causing his son to suffer. He does not see how, nor understand why his son is suffering. So the father carries on doing the best he can.
The reality is that the father copes with his pain, but he has not looked into its root causes. He deals with his pain the way he learned to from his dad, and he passes the ball on to his son who then passes it onto his wife and family. Perhaps from a young age the grandfather mistreated the father. Even though the son wants things to change, the habits are deep.
Until somebody gets the game for what it is, the only thing that gets passed (usually veiled in numbness or angry outbursts) is resentment, And thus, the wheel of suffering spins from generation to generation.
Whenever you recognize that the root cause of suffering is always some form of withholding love, you pick up a light arrow of awareness. This moment of awareness, this pause of habit is priceless; it stops the cycle of suffering.
It’s quite liberating to realize, whoa, this is not ‘me’. I’ve just been acting the way I was taught, behaving the way I grew up. The instant you realize this, you sort of catch the habit by the tail. Then there is a gap, a pause, a chance to do something, anything different. What I enjoy about Taj’s letter is the way he seeks to untangle the original kink, and the way he knows the stuff with his Dad is somehow the key to liberating more passion and love with his wife.
So instead of creating a kinked loop of dark resentment covered in bland indifference, a new trajectory of compassion has begun. This is the key to liberating sexual, intimate love and compassion.
Using our defensive childhood coping strategies of withholding love never works. Withholding love only breeds the resentment that perpetuates suffering.
However, I do respect the tenacity of those early twisted- love -patterns we take from and pass on to our loved ones and I know they need constant attention. The glimpses of awareness we gain can be fragile and fleeting.
I especially know how those love kinks may return when we go home to visit families…
So to comb through the tangles and return to the natural flow of love, do this healing practice from Thich Nhat Hanh:
Breathing in, I see myself as a five-year-old child.
Breathing out, I smile to the five-year-old child still alive and present in me.
Breathing in, I see the five-year-old child in me as being fragile, vulnerable, wounded.
Breathing out, I embrace the five-year-old child in me with all my understanding and love.
May the generosity of your spirit lead you to break the chains of the past and may you have the energy to walk boldly on a path with heart.
In Beauty, Amara Charles
Next Quodoushka 1 workshop in January 30-Feb 2 2014. Phoenix
Amara Charles is the Author of Best Selling book.
I just finished a four-day, second-level, sacred
sexuality workshop called Quodoushka. While the first one
focuses on the self, this one focuses on relationship.
There are a lot of teachings
and exercises, some are talk-oriented, most are hands-on.
Agreements and boundaries are an important part of the
experience. I had a truly amazing time: the people in this
group were bright souls, with really good energy; I had
really good energetic exchanges and connections.
I got a lot of really
positive feedback about my presence, that I had a strong
impact on the group, that I “healed hearts, even
without directly interacting,” and that I helped some
folks work through some tough things. I in turn experienced
healing and a lot of clearing of old energy that no longer
served me. I felt much cleaner and brighter
Returning home, I noticed I
was very tender upon seeing Susan and Rumi. I felt bursting
with feeling, without ever being able to name any particular
emotion. I just felt feelings, and it left me weepy at
And then I felt the old
patterns creeping in. It didn’t take long—only a few
hours—before I was shutting down in the same ways as
before. Now, I had been thinking it was because Susan has a
strong masculine side that puts her in competition with me,
and that causes friction. And I had been thinking I was
going to need to be more masculine, to provide the safety of
a “masculine container,” so that she could
“let go” into her femininity. While that may be
true, I think the there’s more to it.
Later that night we were
feeling a little shut down. Lying in bed it was the same old
energy: flat. I was thinking “we should have sex,”
but her energy did not tell me she was open. Then, she said
“I think we should have sex.” Ha! Well….
The interaction was slow and
deliberate. I was really open, energetically, and could
sense a lot more than I ever could before. I noticed that
her heart chakra felt exquisite, just sweet and wonderful.
That surprised me, based on how I had been feeling with her.
Then I got to her third eye.
I was immediately and
strongly repulsed. It was shocking how More …
Just up loaded a new video about the passion of Elemental Touch.
The more passion you have in
your life, the easier it is to
motivate yourself, manifest
creativity, and create your dreams.
Conversely, the more power
you have, the easier it is to
create a safe space to explore
and express your passions.
Whether you are trying to create
a new body, a new career, a new
relationship…or simply take
your current body, career, or
relationship to a new and more
dynamic level, pulled by hunger
rather than driven by discipline
…the Art of Erotic Intelligence
is what you’ve been looking for.
a new world of possibility, created by the combined vision of Amara Charles and Steven Barnes
e·rot·ic /iˈrätik/ adjective
Erotic Intelligence is about becoming sensitively attuned to the constant fluctuations life presents and then using this awareness to properly discern what to do.
–Imagine living a life where everything you do leads to your dreams…and the fulfillment of those dreams increases your overall pleasure, joy, and erotic adventure.
–Imagine living in a world where every erotic awareness increases your energy and aliveness, enabling your creativity, health, fitness, and success!
In 1928, Napoleon Hill’s classic THINK AND GROW RICH revealed that the most successful men and women had highly charged erotic natures. And that through the process he called “Sex Transmutation” actually used this energy to drive their creativity and worldly accomplishment.
But using sexual energy to drive accomplishments is not the whole story, for the real challenge is to channel your erotic energy with wisdom so you can fully enjoy the whole journey toward success.
Now, for the first time, the two worlds of worldly success and erotic delight have joined together to create a unique blueprint.
Amara and Steve have been friends for twenty years, and out of their fascinating comparisons of sacred and worldly paths of power, created the unique Art of Erotic Intelligence Online Program.
STEVEN BARNES is a world-reknowned expert on human performance, a NY Times bestselling novelist, film-maker, black belt in three different systems, yoga teacher, creative consultant, master hypnotist, husband and father.
AMARA CHARLES is a world-reknowned expert on sexual energies, having taught thousands of students in dozens of countries, authored books, tapes, given live lectures in seven countries, and been certified in multiple traditions of sexual magic.What if we said that there’s a scientific way, a proven formula that could dramatically increase your magnetic fire and allow you to realize accomplishments most dear to your heart?
You will receive:
1) The Thirty Day Erotic Challenge
Designed to “kick start” you, giving you specific instructions and assignments to help you begin this new, juicy phase of your life.

5) The Science of Getting Rich, by Wallace D. Wattles. This “forgotten” classic text is the source of the worldwide best-seller The Secret! But the original, written in 1924, contains information not in the later version, information you MUST have if you would get the most out of it. This version, offered to you in complete form, contains special annotations by Amara and Steve, boiling its principles down to simple step-by-step form, linking it with the EROTIC INTELLIGENCE concept.

The Art of Erotic Intelligence Online Program Special Offer ends today at Midnight!
Thank You Janelle and Alex of Sexy Challenges. A great conversation… You’re fantastic to talk to!
You can order the Art of Erotic Intelligence Online program today. Special offer and bonuses end tonight at midnight.
I’m to say that the Art of Erotic Intelligence course is ready to go…
The idea is to inspire you to use your passion to empower every aspect of your life, a core secret of high-performing artists, inventors, business folk and lovers since the beginning of time: energy is energy, but we don’t always understand how to access it.
But if you can tap into and release it in ONE arena of your life, you have the doorway to opening it in EVERY arena of your life.
To be effective, it had to merge male and female energies, and
no matter how balanced I might be, I was always going
to lean heavily on the “female” side. Fortunately, I didn’t have to go looking for someone to do this with. For twenty years, it has been my honor to be
friends with STEVEN BARNES. He’s not only a NYT best-selling author who has written for television and Hollywood movies, he’s also a 4th Degree Blackbelt and Tai Chi and Yoga instructor. Even more than these accomplishments, what I most respect about Steve is his devotion to his son Jason – which I feel adds tremendous power to his masculine perspective.
We’ve had endless conversations and fascinating debates about
how to harness, express, and teach using our erotic intelligence.
We never agreed totally, (or sometimes at all! ) and it suddenly hit
both of us–that lack of total convergence wasn’t a weakness,
it was actually a strength!
We were both sick of teachers who pretend to be in alignment
on every little aspect of their teaching.
The truth is that human beings never agree totally. Heck,
you don’t totally agree with what you thought YESTERDAY!
So we had a unique opportunity, because while we don’t agree
totally, we DO respect each other’s positions. Steve has mastered several disciplines, and has clamoring, devoted students around the world. He is married to the lovely Tananarive Due, a highly acclaimed award winning author in her own right.
I’ve learned something valuable creating this project with Steve, for or one thing, he knows how to be friends with a woman. We decided to try teaching a workshop together, and a little bit of magic happened…
Touch is the heart of intimacy. Depriving our selves of loving touch is one of the biggest mistakes we can make, because without connected, intimate touch stress sky rockets and the mind gets foggy. Sensuous touch may be the single most important thing you can do to sustain a loving relationship.
Here are Five Ways that Touch Can Enhance Your Relationship
Bringing variety of touch into the bedroom is not a matter of doing difficult things to please your lover. Being a better lover is much more subtle. It involves spontaneously touching in new ways. Can you touch your lovers and make your fingers move from feeling like water, earth wind and then fire? Check out Touch for Two for some great guidance on the variety of touch.
The Nine Erogenous Zones of the Love Game
Stimulating the Nine Erogenous Zones through playful, sensual touch
not only helps build trust between you and your lover, it makes the game of love intriguing and fun. Listen to this audio to get some ideas about how to arouse your lover, perfectly and playfully getting ready for love.
The words that come from our lips are what make our hands feel warmer. Thoughts of beauty cause sensuous words to flow from our mouths. These words not only float into our lover’s ears, they cause the whole body to open for pleasure.
Being receptive means first listening to listen to your own desires. Don’t know what they are? Not to worry: you don’t have to get into your head about what you need. Everybody needs loving touch. Try this: begin with giving your lover a particularly slow and warm hug. ‘Listen’ to the way it makes you feel. Now, ‘feel into’ your partner. Can you feel his or her body melt when you give a doubly slow and endearing hug without expecting anything?
Touching Special Places
Keep in mind these three things when touching especially erotic places.
Delicacy. Tease. Deep Satisfaction. Our most erotic places on the body yearn to be wanted. Yet they only open for touch when we knock gently on the door first. With permission, these places love to be surprised and have been known to moan for more. This is when touch goes straight to the soul, for there is nothing better in life than to be touched by someone we love.
