Tao Tantra Tea TIME
This is a free, fun & informative tea-time conversation about Tao Tantric Arts. We explore the topic of Sacred Sexuality in Taoist and Tantric traditions, and discuss practices such as the Jade Egg, MultiOrgasm, Injaculation, the MicroCosmic Orbit, and more. Curious? Bring your questions for Q&A!
Learn about practices for cosmically expansive love-making - yes, THAT big!!! We are all born with this capacity - in fact, born of it. Sexual energy is the energy that creates life, it is our common language with Divinity. Tao Tantra is a wondrous gateway to:
- Recognize shame-based social conditioning around sexuality, and how it impacts us
- Upgrade from patterns of contraction/disassociation to conscious, highly expanded experiences of pleasure
- Heal from past sexual trauma
- Gain inner freedom and openness to fully embrace, explore and enjoy our sacred, creative life force energy
Tao Tantra is a treasure chest of tools and techniques to channel sexual energy for vitality, creativity, expanded pleasure and divine bliss. YUM! This is a path for experiencing life in totality - what Tantra is all about.

Jade Egg & Healing Love
Tao Tantric Arts bring us into harmony with nature, and our bodies, where sexual energy is recognized as what creates life and revered as sacred. Taoist sexual practices help us to embrace and cultivate life force energy for vitality, creativity and spiritual awakening. This energy that creates life is our common language with Divinity.
The Jade Egg is a beautiful healing crystal used internally. It was originally taught in ancient China to women in the Imperial court.
Jade Eggs are used to channel sexual energy for health, vitality, creativity, and blissful, conscious love-making. Women experience these benefits and more:
- Healing from past negative sexual experiences
Increased overall vitality, sexual health and sensitivity
Expanded pleasure for both partners - increased libido and orgasmic potential
Reduced symptoms of menstruation and menopause
Build a healthy relationship to the body and to sexuality
Tones, strengthens and develops refined articulation of the yoni
Sacred Cacao 5-Element Dance Ceremony
Sacred Cacao Dance Ceremony is a guided 5-Element dance journey of heart-opening. We gather, drink medicinal cacao elixir, and set intentions. Embodying the 5 elements through dance, we celebrate our totality. We open our hearts to heal through creative physical expression. Our cacao-powered intentions and playful dancing feet carry us through the elements of Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether, calling in the qualities of each element to nourish and support our transformation and self-realization.
What people are saying about Cacao Ceremony:

"Rachel's Cacao Ceremony was vibrant, deeply spiritual, emotionally alive and peaceful at the same time. I loved how the music flowed through all of us..."

5-ELEMENT Tantric MASSAGE
In classical Tantra, the full spectrum of matter to spirit is explored through the physical body and the senses. 5-Element Tantric Massage covers basic theory and practical techniques in the beautiful, non-verbal language of touch, using 5 types of massage, based on the qualities of each element.
Earth - Water - Fire - Air - Ether
Embody and experience each element, from the most dense (Earth), to the most subtle and sublime (Ether). No experience or equipment required, we practice Thai style, on "cozy stations" (yoga mats and blankets), with clothes on.
All participants both give and receive massage in all 5 Elements, increasing fluency in different styles of sacred healing touch.
We practice how to give and receive supportive, evolutionary feedback in a safe space. Ideal for both couples and individuals, no partner required.
• Increased vocabulary of touch
• Wider ranges of sensation and pleasure
• Refined communication skills
• Improved relationships through understanding of elemental properties and how they show up in human nature
"The massage techniques are playful and enjoyable for both parties. How I feel afterwards is much better than when I started. Transformational."
"I really enjoyed exploring the qualities of the 5 Elements in new ways. Expanding the vocabulary and sensory experiences for my partner and I gave us an opportunity for deeper intimacy."
Tao Tantra Healing Love:
Multi-Orgasm & the Microcosmic Orbit
What does it mean to be MultiOrgasmic? Get answers and insights from the ancient wisdom of Taoist Sacred Sexuality. In this experiential workshop, we debunk myths and discover what multi-orgasm means, talk about expanded, wave/valley and full-body orgasms, and open the MicroCosmic Orbit.
This practice is the foundation of all the Tao Healing Love practices. The MicroCosmic Orbit is the primary energy channel for circulating and sublimating sexual energy in the body and into the higher spiritual centers. Based on the teachings of Master Mantak Chia, founder of Universal Healing Tao and author of The MultiOrgasmic Woman, The MultiOrgasmic Man, The MultiOrgasmic Couple.
