Shakti Queen TV




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.

About Quodoushka Spiritual Sexuality Levels 1-4


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.

Orbit Coaching with Amara Charles


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.

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.

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.

Find Out More
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.
