What Q Graduates have to say….

“An essential life training for all human beings whatever age. A much needed teaching to clean up the current mess/confusion around the whole area of sex/sexuality in society. I will be suggesting to my daughters that they attend Q1 as a basic life skills/education program….. Words cannot describe the importance of this teaching to mankind.”Bruce Irvine – Company Director, Auckland, New Zealand

“Having over 30 years completed a myriad of workshops, this is by far the most powerful ‘useful’ workshop for embodiment of a joyful blissful life.”Diane Ryan – Psychotherapist, Brisbane, Australia

“One of the most profound sexual healing trainings I’ve done. The usefulness and integrity of the material is a great gift.”Anna Marti – Sexual Intimacy Coach, Seattle, USA

“Truly an amazing weekend. Can’t wait to use the teachings in my life. Profound is not enough of a word to describe these teachings. World leaders should all be required to go through this in order to lead the human race.”Jim – Business Owner, Seattle, USA

“Chuluaqui Quodoushka awoke my sexual energy. It gifted me the power and knowledge to love my life in the present as a sexually empowered and motivated woman. I want to, and will do, everything to take this into my everyday life.”Helen Heatley Gilberd – Director, Auckland, New Zealand

“The Q was not only one of the most safe and supportive experience for me to learn about myself in the area of sexuality, personal awareness and being happier, but also, it supported me in being more clear in business and in all areas of my life. Very, very powerful…”DC Cordova – International Business Entrepreneur.

“I am particularly grateful at the level of safety and opportunity that your team generated. This environment gave me the opportunity to stretch, which I repeatedly felt empowered to do. So I stretched and stretched some more. I feel profoundly transformed!”Pat Muller – Psychologist.

“I arrived bruised and battered by my relationships and found a healing space with the tools to empower me in my everyday life. I found the space that revitalized me, filled me with hope, I found love for myself and the beings that surround me.”David Frost – Australia.

“I cannot begin to tell you how much the recent Q1 has changed me. I had never gone through such a profound transformative process within the course of a single weekend. I rejoice in knowing that freedom, love and great sex are my birthright.”Annette Sand – Physical Therapist.

“My life has already started the ramping-up-process. The level of intimacy that my partner and I have experienced since our return from the Q1 is remarkable. Thank-you.”Billy Western Fox – Zen Buddhist Priest.

“As the next Quodoushka workshops approach I’m wishing I were there with you guys! I’m currently setting up my business. It is extremely hard work and is taking everything I’ve got….The only reason I’ve got the power to do it, is because of you guys and the Q magic – after what you guys showed me, there’s no way I’m leaving this amazing planet with my music still inside me!”Lee Burger – UK.

THIS WEEK’S FEATURE

SAY YES TO YOUR HIGHEST ATTRACTIONS

Attraction, Magnetism and Spontaneity. These are the three jewels of a Shakti Queen. Today we’ll peek at the power of our highest attractions.

A Shakti Queen understands the power hidden inside her gentle attention. She knows what matters through practice. She pays attention to subtle feelings inside her body. She rouses the inner dragon and draws to her what delights her by the softness of her breath, the pulse of her heart, and the emptiness of her mind.

Taking the time to pay attention to your highest attractions is one of the most deeply nourishing Self Love practices a women can give to herself.

When something attracts you should pay attention. Where does it touch you? Where do you feel it in your body? If you pay attention, you’ll start to notice this: when you are attracted to something or someone there’s a place in your body that tingles. It could be your heart, or your breasts, your pussy or even your eyes can tingle. Different attractions cause different parts of our body to twitch and when you awaken your senses, and you begin to pay close attention, you’ll start to feel into what every attraction is telling you.

But if you ignore these subtle hints you’ll keep missing your highest attractions.

I practiced for years going out to malls and public places where there were lot’s of people passing by. The practice was to simply turn on my erotic intelligence and notice what in any given space attracted me the most. At first, I never acted on anything I saw. I just observed, and felt the place in my body that tingled. It’s fascinating and fun.

In any given moment of every day there’s always an overwhelming tray of events, people, tasks, projects – you name it that could pull you this way or that. It’s not that you want to have sex with every passer by (well maybe some of you do). The practice is to see what catches your attention. Is it movement? Color? Energy? Smiles? What are you drawn to?

Part of the skill a Shakti Queen practices is learning how to observe, and how to listen. While looking outward, start to notice what you say to your self. After a while, you’ll notice something interesting: when you are really attracted to someone, your thoughts stop for a split second. This is because our highest attractions attract fast thought.

Reality is relentlessly offering up possibilities. A Queen says, bring it on! A Queen’s task is to practice going into quiet soft focus, noticing, and FEELING what to pay attention to. It’s quite a task.

If we’re tangled up in fear, shame, overwhelm or anything that separates us from the stream of creation, that is the stream of attention we will follow. And guess what? The stream we follow is precisely what we will find at the end of the yellow brick road.

It’s not that we can always pick  ‘good’ streams over ‘bad ones, it’s just that you must quickly choose what to pay attention to no matter what you stream you’re on. You may know the story of the nun being chased by a tiger. Just before she reaches the edge of the precipice, she glances down to notice a bush with a shinning strawberry. Holding onto the bush, with  her feet dangling over the edge, she looks right into the tiger’s eyes, picks the berry and on her way down says, ‘Delicious!’

Our entire life is a matter of following our highest attractions, and saying yes to the right thing at the right time.It’s hard when we’re in trouble, or we’re feeling pain, or emotionally upset to focus on the right thing. If we’re feeling grief, there’s going to be moments where we feel loss. Just give this feeling a moment of your attention, and then let it go. If you’re feeling joy, don’t start thinking what will happen when it’s gone. Keep letting go. That’s it.

Since 1985 Quodoushka workshops have empowered people around the world to unlock their deep seeded blocks against pleasure and to have greater health, hope, happiness, harmony and humor in their sexual lives

Practical exercises to reach higher levels of orgasm, renew relationships, and discover the healing power of sex

“Since most of us come from families where meaningful guidance about sex was scant if it existed at all, many of us are hungry to find sensible approaches for creating healthy intimate relationships. For me, discovering the teachings and practices of Quodoushka dramatically changed the course of my life. They not only offered an inspiring system of integrated knowledge, they expanded my whole view of sex, orgasms and relationships. They helped me accept the unique characteristics of my sexual anatomy and most importantly, showed me how we can learn through pleasure in order to become more sensitive, creative lovers.” Amara Charles

The second oldest river in the world  is nearby.  The lodging available at the house is limited because the house is being remodeled and I am not sure how much will be done by the time of the workshop.  There will be off site locations, including extra beds with local women attending for 25$ per night.  Local cabins are also available, to share with others at their cost.  I can fill you in on those options when you contact me….camping on the land is an option too.

Here’s What Our Shakti Queens Say

LAKA2-341-MAs a Shakti Queen I feel valued and appreciated as a woman. I learned what I need to manifest at this point in my life. I learned many exercises that will help me focus more on myself. As a young woman, I always worry about how people view me, who my next partner will be, and mending broken relationships. I realized that all these things will happen when they are supposed to. All these women in the workshop I have felt some sort of connection with and see them as wise women. I have felt my magnetic power and feel refreshed and renewed after this weekend. Thank you so much Amara! Being in your presence always brings beauty within the room. All my love - MaconKristina NYSQ

I love the teachings from all the different traditions; it felt rich. I love all the ceremonies & physical exercises. I love the way you clearly see & receive people’senergy & can offer them (me) the prefect guidance! Most valuable! Namaste. Many, many thanks” - Stacey

pauletteStarting with drawing a card was profound beginning. I got so much out of my card and insight I’m going to paint a picture of it and other paintings too that honor the feminine, for my own therapy and development. I got so much more out of the course this year because of my own readiness to be more committed. My humility is better also to realize I needed to change and no longer subscribe to ‘self sufficiency’- (a lifetime mode of operation). I have opened my mind to initiate again sexual relations and explore my sexuality with men again. I am going home inspired and deeply wanting to embrace a practice- be consistent- I get it! This time. - Zan

unnamed-38Amara is a gentle and grounded woman who has clear definitions that are expressed in a loving way. She helped me realize “my manifestation,” or what I need to realize and attain in my life. She not only teaches sexual practices, but also how to find your authentic voice as a woman. She helped me reawaken my sexuality, which (though once strong) had been lying dormant for a long time. She also showed how sexuality is connected to your chakras and your spiritual self. She has a delightful and sometimes irreverent sense of humor.

Private Coaching with Amara Charles

My mission is to help others find peace, passion and purpose in their intimate lives so they can do what they came here to do

I’ve been working  for over twenty years mentoring, coaching and guiding individuals and couples to realize their purpose through strengthening their bonds of intimacy.

I create what I call an orbit of influence where you and I partner to realize your highest possibilities.

Over the years I’ve seen how having a healthy, intimate relationship makes all the difference in life. I am passionate supporting people to resolve issues, plan creative projects and realize their dreams. .

I not only give tools to clear away blocks to sexual happiness, I provide detailed teachings, practices, inspiration, techniques or ceremonies – whatever I feel works best for you – to support you in enjoying the happiness you deserve.

How My Orbit Coaching Works
I rarely do single sessions these days because I prefer creating an ‘orbit’ of closeness, connection  and commitment that lasts over time. Currently an Orbit consists of 10 sessions spread over several months.

Availability
I can only accept a certain amount of people to create a coaching connection with. There is currently a waiting list for my Orbit Coaching.

Application
I offer a free session to see whether we might enjoy working together. This offer is only for people I have actually met. Please email me if you’d like to arrange a short session by phone to explore possibilities.

Please Note: If we have not met yet, and you’d like to be on the Orbit list, please write me a letter of request.
