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 programme….. 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.

About Quodoushka Spiritual Sexuality Levels 1-4

quodoushka-spiritual-sexuality-workshops-amara-charles

Based in ancient shamanic traditions, the experience of Quodoushka will change the course of your life forever. This series of spiritual sexuality workshops will empower you to be a more sensitive, creative lover and will help you enjoy the intimacy you deserve in your relationships.

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

Quodoushka workshops include:

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

  • Demonstrates how to identify and best please the nine male and female genital anatomy types—such as Coyote Man or Buffalo Woman
  • Provides exercises for greater sexual pleasure and orgasmic intensity, including the Firebreath exercise for full-body orgasm
  • Explains how to perform powerful healing sexual energetic work with the chakras and light body

Based on ancient Mayan, Olmec, and Toltec teachings passed down through the generations by the Twisted Hair Nagual Elders of the Sweet Medicine Path, Quodoushka offers practical guidance on sex, intimacy, and relationships as well as how to reach higher levels of orgasm and sexual ecstasy. Working with the healing power of sexual union and orgasm, this practice offers a path to repair emotional wounds and sexual insecurities, revive monotonous relationships, and discover the sweet medicine of sex.

Discovering Quodoushka Spiritual Sexuality

“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

All Quodoushka Teachers

All Quodoushka teachers are highly trained individuals apprenticed to the Sweet Medicine Sundance Path of Turtle Island. Each Quodoushka is taught by both male and female teachers. This select group of teachers is authorized to present the Quodoushka teachings around the world.
