A Shamanic Approach to Spiritual Sexuality

February 12-15, 2015

If you have been seeking deep healing in your relationship to your sexual energy, or are curious about exploring its spiritual potential, then look no further.

The Chuluaqui Quodoushka teachings are based in sacred Shamanic traditions which integrate spirituality and sexuality as an integral part of life. The wheels, keys, and knowledge offered in these workshops offer an alternative and enlightened approach to sexuality, as well as some beautiful ways to bring new understanding, openness and healing to our sexual selves.

The old ways teach that the word “Chuluaqui” refers to the primordial life force energy from which everything is created. It is the innermost essence of all beings; the whirlwind serpent fire of spiritual sexual creation. “Quodoushka” is the magickal energy created when two life force energies merge to create a new energy which is greater than the sum of its parts.
