Event description


How WILD is your love life? A bit tamer than you’d like? You’re not alone! It’s becoming harder and harder to make real, passionate connections. Everyone wants pleasure and intimacy, we just don’t know how to create it in a world full of swiping and one night stands.

We want something better. Something juicier than what we thought possible and aren’t willing to settle.

So we created a workshop to unleash your power, your body, your sacred sovereignty, and your freedom. ALL while supercharging your ability to create empowered connection and intimacy. Because you want it all. And you get to have it.

For couples and singles.


Wild Love is run by four intimacy, sex and relationship professionals, who simply cannot get enough of each other’s brains and can’t stop laughing when we get together. When we met we knew we were striking gold and that we wanted to let more people in on it. Wild Love was born.

Wild Love is the beginning of a conscious community that connects desire and the heart. We’ve decided that we get to be deeply met in our emotional intimacy AND chemistry.

Wild Love is an immersive intimacy workshop that not only empowers you to create what you want in your love life, but gives you the confidence to show up fully in ALL areas of your life.

Wild love is NOT a dating event or another typical conversation about consent. This is not a sex party - and the Unleashed after party will have space to take yourself in a sensual direction - a "2nd base party" - the most fun you can have with your pants on!

We get to the heart of what is getting in the way between you and mind melting love. We give you cutting edge knowledge and tools so you can apply what you learn and embody the confident badass we know you are.

You will leave feeling:

  • Empowered to create and pursue what you want, in love and life.
  • Embodied in your clear YES, and your NO.
  • Expressed in your unique specialness - the amazing gift of YOU.
  • Energized to move, dance, play, and make love to life.
  • Engaged with a growing community of conscious BADASSES.
  • Evolved into a fuller relationship with your deepest self.
  • Elevated to a higher vibration of loving - yourself and others.

Breakout sessions will hit:

  • How do I live from a place of turn on & be fully sexually expressed without weirding someone out
  • Why do I keep getting in the same situations with people I am attracted to and what can I do to make EMPOWERED choices instead of impulsive ones
  • How do I hold onto my authenticity and vulnerability when I fall in love, and not be so embarrassed about sharing who I truly am
  • I get all full of butterflies and CAN’T THINK when I like someone! HALP!

You will learn how a calm nervous system is sexier than great abs and pillowy hair. All peppered with corny dad jokes + powerful embodiment exercises. We kid you not.

If you would like to...

  • meet some special someone(s), AWESOME, we will make it safe for you to speak your desire.
  • connect as friends, PERFECT, you will have plenty of opportunities to get to know like minded badasses.
  • soak up some amazing tips on how to create a turned on life, GET IT! We will honor it and celebrate you exactly where you are.

Consensual touch and honoring boundaries is a big one with us. You get to choose how much you would like to explore and with whom at ALL times.

Our first workshop is in Oakland. It is our opener, so this baby is at a low price, but it will not stay that way.

After the workshop we have something saucy waiting to delight the pants on or off of you, depending on what tickles your fancy.

This nighttime event is called WILD LOVE UNLEASHED

This is for those of you who want to take this practice to the next level. It is a conscious communion party that will carry the work of the day into a more intimate realm where ANYTHING is possible. We are creating a sacred temple play space where intimate connection, in the container of consent and respect, will be safely encouraged.

Come-as-you-are, without ANY expectations of you. WILD LOVE UNLEASHED is ONLY available to those who attend the daytime event, so we are all on the same page, with people who are on the same journey together.

What to expect:

  • 30-50 soulful, intelligent, heartfelt ones who want more from the dating/relationship scene and enjoy taking their lives (not just their love lives) next level.
  • Sexy & empowering tips and tools that are not your parents' guide to finding love.
  • A sober lunch & party. Because your smile is more than enough.
  • People who identify as monogamous, polyamorous. All genders and sexualities are not just welcome, but celebrated.

  • 10am - Welcome circle begins and doors are CLOSED
  • 12pm - Lunch (provided)
  • 1:30pm - Breakout sessions
