A truly magnificent retreat. I felt so free to be me, to feel into my womanly essence! To be able to allow my full person t0 be alive and free. To learn things to support this beautiful soft part of me, that I crave to live fully and express from! Building and building upon a foundation I started many years ago. A way of being that I only want to live and breathe from. I love you, Amara and Shyena, and look forward to our continued journey together. Love always, Erin
This was such a refreshing experience for me. It was so nurturing to have real (not superficial) interactions and heartfelt discussions with laughter all day each day. I really enjoyed the water opportunities all around me and the ability to be immersed in it every break. The teachings of Shakti Queen were like taking a precious energy into my being rather than simply good intents for my mind. I am going to practice with my jade egg in my dream time for forty days. I am going to stalk my circle of queens to enrich my life and support me on my journey.
I am very grateful for the team that Amara and Shyena offered in the orchestration of this event. It was beautiful to watch the two of you as humans, lovers, sisters, friends, teachers, and helpers. Thank you for sharing so openly, gently, intently, and consciously. It was a beautiful circle of energy created here in all its fullness and many facets. Thank You!!
I feel more nurtured and able to nurture myself after being here. My heart keeps overflowing. I want to have this opportunity simply be the first of many amazing dances together. A. Butterfly
Q3 is a gateway for deep healing and personal growth. It is a space which allows for people to let go of past suffering and move beyond limiting life patterns so they may enter into an integrated whole way of being. Q3 is designed in a manner which births us back into our natural powerful birthright as masculine and feminine sacred sexual warriors.
We got a tremendous boost as a committed couple. Edges yes, but faster recovery and reengagement from hurts. Beautiful, meaningful ceremony. We focused our joint intent. We are better than ever. Closer, yet more free.
Q3 was an opportunity to sink deeper into my inner knowing self, Source, Great Spirit. I had the opportunity to feel that connection deeply, see my edges. Rediscover my partner, feel what it’s like to incorporate sexuality in day to day life and question why I don’t already feel what it’s like to be supported, to support myself and my brothers and sisters. In a word, it was magical. And I feel a sense of clarity knowing that this path is available. That going deeper into spirituality can be a merging of Spirit and sex and I don’t have to choose one. That God and sex exist together. I can speculate but I don’t know what my path is or where I’ll end up but I feel a deep knowing that I’m on it, that I can trust, that I’m going in the right direction.
Loved, loved the Q2! Going into the Q2 experience I was apprehensive, but the teachers and the safe space they kept for me was excellent and filled with love. I would have never dreamt I would feel the way I do now! I had walls built up to protect myself, but the teachings and encouragement, as well as the participants and my husband, helped break them down and I was able to have a wonderful experience. I am definitely changed. I’m so glad I came and want to do more!
Everyone on the staff was on purpose and fully present. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. What a gift you have given us. “As someone who has done many, many personal growth workshops, I can say the Quodoushka training is the finest spiritual sexuality training system I have found.” Mark Casey, Business Person and Personal Coach.
Once again the Q team held a space of the highest integrity, allowing participants—especially those prone to a lot of nervousness and anxiety—to safely explore the content of the workshop. It’s hard to put into words the effects of this work but I do know that something IS changing and I know that now that I’ve had a taste of this change, I can’t go back—I won’t go back—to the frightened, self-conscious, under-pleasured, over-paranoid individual that I walked into the first Q as. I am deeply grateful and for possibly the first time ever feel like my heart is open enough, and free enough, to really understand what that means. Thank you. May you all continue to shine BRIGHT!
After the Shakti Queen women’s retreat in Maui, I know to truly embrace my femininity and power and to make sure I nourish it daily. You’ve brought reflection of how to be empowered in our lives. The Qigong practices were wonderful! The breast and egg exercises were fun. I’m making a commitment to do them daily and I know the next Shakti Queen teaching I attend, I will build on what I’ve taken away from here. The sisterhood was like nothing I’ve participated in before. The focus was 100% on us and we on each other. No competition—just oneness. It was fantastic!! Chanting brought a new dimension and one that I will explore. Thank you for bringing your wisdom, teaching, loving spirit and energy to share with us. I AM BEAUTIFUL!! I AM EMPOWERED!!
The Shakti Queen women’s retreat in Maui was a profound experience all around. The beauty of the natural setting accentuated the beauty of the teachings and ceremonies. I especially enjoyed the Qigong outside (perfect spot!) and the photography exercise. We managed to explore most (if not all) of the beauty and bounty this land has to offer. Thank you for sharing what you’ve learned with me. I’m a better person just knowing you. . .With Deepest Gratitude and Love, Lisa K.
The Q has begun a whole new level of healing and transformation for me. All that I thought I knew about myself is gone and I need to figure out my new boundaries. I know I will feel stronger overall and relate to others in a completely different way…Breaking through many preconceptions and boundaries. I knew it would happen, but was still stunned by how much it did. The staff were fun, engaging–did a wonderful job of making each of us feel loved, welcomed and safe to push our limits. –T. Ray, Corporate Executive
I learned so much but more than the knowledge, I felt alive, awake, confused, excited, present, sad, a deeper knowing of myself and a deeper acceptance of my journey. This is a healing journey, but it was also fun. It wasn’t about effort, work or trying/struggling, it was about opening up and experiencing the strength in my vulnerability, allowing myself to get naked and being seen and accepted and loved. Thank you so much for the safe space allowing me to blossom and to flower and feel the thrill in my opening and watching others open up too. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Your commitment, dedication and passion is pouring out of each of you. Your knowledge is powerful, but your love and care fills me.
As intimidating as it was for me to come with my partner, the fun we had, the things we learned about ourselves and each other are beyond expectation. Maybe we can be together another 30 years? –Skip
This was one of the most profound and life changing workshops I have ever attended. It is so refreshing to have plain talk and instruction on the subject of sex and sensual relations. This teaching and practice will change all my relationships from this point forward. I feel like I have been given a special tool kit to help me on my growing path. –James, Aerospace Engineer
Beautiful people! Why didn’t I know about this sooner!!! Thank you for being so compassionate!! I really felt like I could be myself around all of you! You made me smile, laugh, and cry! It was so emotional and worth it! Exciting! You are all AMAZING people and inspire me to truly, truly live life to the fullest and to stop worrying and to live in the moment and to just let it happen! –Kathy, Teaching Aide

Respect for us a monogamous couple. Thank you. Loved the gratitude with gifts. Thank you. Wonderful attentiveness to food. Thank you. Unexpected diversity of ages, experiences, ideas, directions, sexuality. Perrrfecto!! –Mary, Yoga Studio Owner/Teacher
If you are ready for your life to accelerate leaps and bounds, just do the Q1. Just do it. Before ever considering getting truly committed, my partner will have to do Q1. It seems to be the only way 2 people can actually understand what the other one is saying. This is the first time I have truly fallen in love with myself.
This is my second Q1 and like my first Q, it was an amazing and emotionally enlightening event in my life. Having a large, peaceful space makes the Q more fun and more accessible, because I do not live in the area. The teachings are excellent and the information you are sharing is so valuable and necessary. The exercises are excellent and really help open everyone to be more accepting and willing to push themselves through their walls. I recommend the Q for everyone. I personally believe that PG-13 and R versions should be taught in high school and college. I believe our government leaders should practice the Q and make decisions based on Q teachings. Overall the four days spent here have completely opened my mind, body and spirit. The connections I’ve made, the teachings I’ve accepted and the exercises I’ve practiced will have a profound impact on my life. –Pony Warrior, Computer Systems Engineer
The best process I have experienced to integrate, ground yourself, and move forward feeling positive and whole. US Army Officer and Iraqi War Vet. Staff is awesome. Thank You! Mike
The Q1 experience was awesome. It was a safe space to learn so much about my own “sensuousity”! My life really is changed from the experience. I just didn’t know what I didn’t know. My sexual self was hungry and though I am in a 27 year marriage to the man I love, I wanted more. My husband and I came together. Our sex life has reached greater heights than I ever expected. This program made it all possible! The staff is awesome!
Q1 was amazing. It safely and incrementally led me to a place that I wanted to go….A place that I didn’t know that I wanted to go, or maybe I really did know deep down but kept that desire pushed down. The facilitators created a safe container that allowed me to feel comfortable taking the next step, and the next step, and the next . . . .!!!!! I have a new sense of self love and fulfillment that will change my life forever. –TF
Amara—engaging, smart, sass, sexy, gifted teacher
All the other support staff have been so warm and helpful and keep us safe and worry free. –M
This has been very moving. I got to address real life stuff while really living. You showed me how to deal with powerful feeling when it comes up. I can’t really say how much that meant to me. So deep. And the teaching in this 3rd Q experience for me was even deeper. I wanna do more and see more of the power within—flowing within and without—
I first resisted attending this workshop. But Great Spirit has a way of inviting which persisted and prevailed. Obviously I had experiences which needed to occur. What a blessing I received. The love bonding was fantastic. The knowledge gained was outstanding and very timely to my spiritual growth. I will certainly recommend this to anyone seeking spiritual truth. It truly was a beautiful experience and one I will always treasure. –Alan
The Q1 has been a wonderful experience for me, given me the opportunity to heal much and find the courage to come back to the world with a different attitude, open and ready to start my journey as a new person, totally and fully present in every aspect of my life.
Amara – I love your energy, excitement, passion, and deep understanding of the principles. I love your ability to teach in a way that connected with me.
My Q1 experience has been outstanding! The love and tenderness with which the beautiful staff has guided us through very sensitive times were just amazing. Thank you. Thank you. My relationship with my by sody, my7 sexuality and Great Spirit will never be the same again. I look forward to the many moments of vibrational joy of being a spirit I will be experiencing when I return to my daily routine. Thank you. –Pedja
Taught me to listen and take my time with the opposite sex and wait for approval to proceed. Let me feel that the ladies need to feel they are safe and know that their rules are being followed completely so that trust is developed. J. Niga Ellis
Q1 was a pleasure. Content and presentation was clear and useful, logistics and support were impeccable, and the training was memorable and easily executed in our daily lives. PS In a few weeks, I think I’ll be telling people that this changed my life. –Mark Richards
I loved it, it was very challenging for me, but I go to home with new tools for play and be myself, looking for happiness and self-acceptance. Loving myself more. Magic happened to me. Thanks. –Carmen Richards
One of the greatest opportunities for rapid self-growth of anything I have done. The integrity for the space the staff and trainers hold is beyond compare. –Bruce
Q1 is a mind blowing experience. I learned more in 4 days about sex and spirituality than I would have believed was possible. This teaching gives us a beginning path to use our sexual energy to get in touch with our spirit, our partner’s spirit and God spirit. At 70, it truly showed that you are never too old to seek and find new paths of learning. I found this Q1 reinforced some of the things I learned in my first Q1. I felt this presentation was lighter in nature and may have helped me better remember and put into practice the concepts presented. –Neal L., Retired Computer Scientist
A great introduction to understanding the power of sexuality and its relationship to spirituality in ordinary life.
Staff great, especially Manuela who worked silently and continuously throughout the 4 days. –H
A profound glimpse into the heart of the sacred union with all of life. –Karla
My experience at Quodoushka was fascinating and life changing. I wasn’t sure what to expect. Staff and teachers were so caring and made sure that everyone felt safe. Their honoring way of setting the space allowed me to have my experience. These are the kind of teachings we need for the children of our future that will be the ones to rule the world in future. Thank you to all the staff for being so beautiful, their time and dedication. –Carmen
I have been fortunate in my life. When deciding to study new energetic healing practices I have been lucky to study under excellent teachers. This continued to be true in Quodoushka. Amara and her staff are incredible. I can usually “smell the bullshit.” This training is definitely not. My fellow students were equally incredible. The growth here was amazing. –Dale Rishel, Medical Qigong Practitioner, Tai Chi and Qigong Instructor
The Quodoushka workshops and teachings have been hugely instrumental in my sexual healing and maturation as a woman. Also they have helped me to expand in my self confidence and how I walk in the world, with my relationships, and my career.
The Quodoushka teachings have great integrity and wisdom that left me feeling completely empowered in my sexual life, but more importantly in my sense of being a spiritual female. It was the staff’s care, sincerity and commitment to the participants, however that really impressed me. I will be back. –Aubrey, Massage Therapist, Certified Personal Trainer
Qudoushka was definitely the most powerful growth experience I’ve ever had. It was a beautiful journey finding myself and improving my way of being. It opened me up for exploring my sexuality and gave me tools for extended growth in the future. Everything was wonderful. Keep doing the beautiful, powerful work. Thanks for the safe space to lead us on our journeys. –Ieva
This was an unbelievable experience that totally opened up my sexuality with myself and my partner. Amara, Mukee, Michael and Emily are inspirational teachers each with their own gifts. I felt so comfortable and fell in love with everyone! –Drea Pacot, Dancer/student
“Just Do It.” I just want to thank the entire staff so much for creating and holding such a safe container and modeling trust, vulnerability, intimacy and heart-centered joy—the qualities that I am cultivating. Everyone was simply impeccable. I’ll be back . . .Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
With love and passion and juiciness and healing and self-love, Julie K.
I experienced looking at a familiar act in a very different way. It was very powerful, enlightening, profound, and freeing. It presented information that seemed surprising common place, het utterly new. Teacher—Travis
Q1 is heart and body opening. Providing a safe, transformational and non-?? space of sexual and spiritual intimacy. –Sunil
