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.

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

Nourishing Your Beauty
Private Coaching with Amara Charles
I’ve been working for over twenty years mentoring, coaching and guiding individuals and couples to strengthen their bonds of intimacy. I specialize in helping men and women integrate sexual practices for greater awareness and pleasure. I create what I call an orbit of influence where you and I partner together to realize your highest possibilities.
Sessions my be done by phone, in person or via Skype.
Sessions may be private between you and I, or if you have a partner and want to work together, we can also do Talking Stick sessions on Skype. This is popular because it helps you practice finding your voice and hearing each other with very sensitive issues.
Why I do This
Over the last twenty years I’ve listened to countless people say they want to sexually let go, they want to trust and fully surrender but there’s something in the way. I often name this as having an ‘aching to open.’ My passion is to feel this ache, look for the openings and then help you express the love you long to give.
What I discovered is that there are certain keys to unlock the different ways we close down, and that if you use the wrong key at the wrong time, no matter how much we may love someone, the door is staying shut. I’ve also discovered that breaking through a closed mind, body or heart comes down to sensing and feeling that closure, and then knowing how and when to approach. What is required is learning how to place the right key in the lock, properly turning that key and then allowing the correct amount of space and time for permission to enter. To this end, one of the things I do is help you identify your Lover’s Type, so that you can learn how to approach your lover by making the right choices at the right time ~ in a way that works for them.
There is so much to explore in the realm of sex and intimacy.
I know first hand how having a healthy, intimate relationship makes all the difference in life and I am passionate about supporting you to resolve intimacy and sexual issues, plan creative projects and realize your dreams.
I love sharing ceremonies for sexual forgiveness , clearing blocks to sexual pleasure and well as guidance on how to make new sexual agreements.
In my private consultations, depending on what works best for you, I give you tasks to improve your intimate communication and increase your sexual energy. I may design specific ceremonies or give you detailed guidance on sexual restoration exercises to help you learn, practice or integrate many of the Quodoushka spirituality teachings.
Throughout the course of an orbit, personal issues, visionary dreams and new explorations often arise. Every session is about finding solutions that work for you. My approach is down-to-earth and practical. We can address any emotional, mental, physical, spiritual and sexual matters that arise over the course of our orbit. I’m here to support your highest possibilities.
How Orbit Coaching Works
An Orbit consists of 10 sessions which can be spread out according to our schedules over the course of a year. Sessions are an hour to an hour and a half. Sessions can be in person, by phone, or on Skype.
Availability and Application
I often have a waiting list for private sessions.
