Testimonials

The following testimonials are authentic, heartfelt, anonymous, and unsolicited. We are very delighted at the amazing transformations our clients have made in their lives through this powerful work and are honored by the opportunity they give us to help them change their lives.

“You should be called a door-opener, every time I ask for something that I think I'll never get, you open another door. I'm seeing the world as full of open doors instead of closed ones.”

Client
San Mateo, CA

“I couldn't believe you were willing to be with me for 10 full hours in a row and that you talked to me about your own challenges and feelings. Because you were willing to be vulnerable and stay there with me, for the first time in my life I didn't feel like I was too much.”

Client
Santa Cruz, CA

“Every therapist I ever worked with told me I couldn't have what I really wanted in my life, that I would just have deal with my disappointment and live with my unmet needs. You were the first person who actually showed me that I could get all of those needs met in my life. I have never been so happy and fulfilled.”

Client
Alameda, CA
 

"After having spent months and years in talk therapy, both individual and group (which I gave up on years ago), I was a little skeptical that my work with you would bear much fruit, especially in the short run. But now, I begin to appreciate the powerful forces you have learned how to tap into, and what a direct path they can open into healing. My experience the other day left me tingling with excitement, and feeling an unfamiliar sense of hope and optimism. I had thought that I had pretty much banished the feeling of shame that was instilled in me growing up, but now I see that I had merely bandaged it up with a tight dressing, along with a bunch of good things that shame had attached itself to. Pretty amazing. And I feel that I am just getting started with this process, and with what you can help me discover."

Client
San Francisco, CA

“I feel in my bones and viscera that you're helping the real me, the real sexual and powerful me, emerge. I am very indebted to you. Thank you for being so willing to open yourself to me so that I can open up to you to learn to be real and powerful.”

Client
San Jose, CA

“I am getting well in touch with at a deepening level the value, joy, truth and power of connecting intimately.”

Client
San Francisco, CA

“I have been seeing my therapist for years, and I never had this deep emotional breakthrough like I had with you after two sessions.”

Client
New York, NY

“I want you to know that in our four sessions, I have learned so much about myself .... far more than I ever expected. I think there are a lot of elements to self-discovery including self knowledge, timing, desire, effort and openness to change - but a lot of it has to do with the skill, intelligence and warmth of the coach. Much of what I am experiencing in our sessions I already knew on a cognitive level but what makes it a revelation is to really experience it.”

Client
Santa Rosa, CA

"Thanks for your good heart, and incredibly empathetic and attentive listening - the freedom and quality of discussion with you is probably unmatched for me - the human side of healing is so important and so overlooked in conventional modern medicine and even in other modes of healing depending on the individuals involved. Please don't ever under-estimate this fact about yourself and what you offer, it goes so far beyond just the facts and knowledge of learned information, you have offered a more human gift that you share which I appreciate a lot."

I've discovered I am a sexual being and gained the courage and confidence to express all of myself

Somatica has been hugely transformational for me both personally and professionally.Before becoming a practitioner, I was a client who experienced very low desire and believed I was not a sexual being. I feel sadness as I remember the false beliefs I thought were true. So not true! I've discovered I am a sexual being and gained the courage and confidence to express all of myself. I also learned to be vulnerable in my relationships. Because of my own personal transformation, I decided Somatica was the work that I wanted to do in the world and I love what I do! My ongoing training in the method continues to increase my skills as a practitioner and expand my understanding of myself as a sexual being.

The healing is profound and touches all parts of one's life

Celeste & Danielle have created a revolutionary approach to transformation. Because it dives deeply into the vulnerable and guarded realms of sexuality, the healing is profound and touches all parts of one's life. The process of being in a relationship with a practitioner while finding one's own individual humanity allows more self-love and acceptance. Leading an individual into embracing and loving the human they are, living in a world where desires can be embraced, mistakes become learning and life is a continual journey of curious exploration.

H.R, Somatica Core Training, 2012

Celeste and Danielle are frequent fliers on the Sex With Emily podcast and are two of my favorite guests. They present informative, insightful information in a relatable way that is easily digestible and extremely helpful to my audience's most common questions.

Dr. Emily Morse, host of the Sex With Emily podcast

When I interview Danielle and Celeste, it’s like this exquisite balance of energies, a dance of wisdom, a hot erotic authentic sacred tapestry of possibility in relationships, sex… even on how to parent my teenage son! I walk away feeling juicy, empowered and more ME! Definitely book them.

Allana Pratt, Intimacy Expert

Completely original and unique [Cockfidence] provides practical insights and exercises that are truly life-changing. Should be required reading for all men.

Dr. Sandor Gardos, Sex Therapist and founder of MyPleasure.com

[Making Love Real] is a must read for all couples in the practice of relationship. The tools presented are practical, effective and often fun. This is the art of loving!

Dr. Liam Snowdon, Professor at the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality

I can’t believe no one ever gave me this information about women before. I went home and practiced with my partner and we had more passionate sex than we’ve ever had.

Somatica Client

Since we worked with you, my wife is an orgasm machine. I can barely keep up with her!”

Client, South Bay

Thanks so much for putting me in touch with Keeley. We just wrapped up our intensive yesterday, and it was one of the most deeply nourishing experiences I've ever had. She's a wonderful, wonderful person and a skilled therapist, and the Somatica technique enabled a level of emotional exploration I've never reached before in years of talk therapy. You and Danielle are doing great, important work, and you're clearly superb teachers.

Client

Just wanted to follow up and let you know how much those sessions have helped me both mentally and physically. Since I've been back I have put them into practice in my relationship and it has been "mind blowing." (Her words not mine.) I feel myself being a lot more attentive to my desires and needs and vocalizing them - and doing that has been received really well and heightened pleasure for both of us. I know part of it is being in a healthier relationship but I also know that the insight you gave me and the corresponding confidence I now feel has changed my life.  I feel so much more at peace and am allowing my inner "freak" to come out a little more each day, LOL!

Client, Washington, DC

You are very, very good at what you do - not just the sexual training part but your broader understanding of human need and your capacity for empathy and acceptance. I feel very lucky to have met you.

Client, San Francisco

"Coming from the MFT (Marriage and Family Therapy) world I felt lots of arena's around sexuality did not ever get discussed. After taking this class I have learned not only about how to help my clients, I also learned so much about myself in relationships. It is incredible that we can go through life so disconnected and not even know. For anyone looking to better understand themselves in relationship or themselves, I highly recommend this course. It will challenge you in the most profound way."

Student
2013 Somatica training

"The Somatica Training was invaluable in providing me with a framework to work with clients on sex and intimacy. Tantra and Sexological Bodwork provided me with embodiment skills and understanding the importance of breath, sound and movement. Somatica provides the missing element, which is central to human sexuality, of emotional connection in an embodied state. Somatica is the glue that holds all of my training and education in sexuality together!"

I feel like my eyes have been opened to a new world of possibilities. I didn't know what I was getting myself into, but it turned out to be life changing. Please give Celeste and Danielle my gratitude for setting up an environment for men to learn what we didn't get to learn from school, family, or society. Also, you are amazing in every sense of the word and I enjoyed sharing my trust, my passion, and my inner lion with you 🙂 From the bottom of my heart..thank you!

Client
San Francisco, CA

I am doing well and just wanted to give you a small update. I just started seeing this man, who so far seems pretty amazing. Most importantly, I wanted to share with you some details 🙂

Before our first date, I was a bundle of nerves. Before he arrived, I went into my room where I have a full length mirror. I danced with myself, sensually, as we did in our first session together, to get reconnected to my sexuality again. I cherished every aspect of my body and knew it could drive him wild. I did this again before our second date. It really makes a difference. I have used the breathing techniques that we went through and when it came to being intimate, I was scared and excited all at once. I chose not to have intercourse with him that night but I did enjoy everything he was doing and maybe more importantly for me, was that I felt like a sex kitten when I began to explore him. I have never had that much confidence when I was with a man! I let my hair fall over him, I used my breasts to caress him and I teased him till he couldn't take it anymore! I felt so in control and sexy and beautiful and I have you to thank for that.

I treasure our sessions together as they really helped me grow out of a space I was ready to leave and into my new space. Anyway, thought you might enjoy the update...stay tuned for more fun. Loads more practice needed but a VERY successful first attempt after years of nothing.

All my gratitude to you my beautiful sister!

"Celeste shows a level of caring and gentle sensitivity that I have rarely, if ever, encountered in any therapist or other health care professional anywhere in the world. Her ability to read emotions and identify subtle problems in sexual relationships and intimacy is a rare gift. It is indeed a privilege to have worked with her and I consider myself extremely fortunate to be her client."

Client
Tampa, Florida

"Through my work with Dimitry over several months I experienced a profound shift in my sexual experience. I experienced three significant transformations: from feeling unattractive to embodying a deep knowledge of my own sexiness, from feeling deficient and inadequate to knowing I am beautiful safe wanted and appreciated, and from being frustrated and single to living with my life partner. Dimitry's presence, sensitivity and courage made our sessions safe and truly transformative."

Client

I felt very seen by you and able to really get in touch with how my work is affecting me and what I want to get out of my sessions with you, namely, that I want to integrate the opening and joy and aliveness that I feel in intimacy and sensuality with my clients into my daily life. I really appreciate how intuitive it felt like you were and your sensitive nature. Thank you.”

Client
San Jose, CA

“Just had to send you an update... I kissed her last night. 🙂 You were so right. And to think that I wanted to pull back because I thought she wasn't attracted to me. It's a good thing that I was in the right frame of mind after talking to you, so that I could react positively to her. I think it made all the difference. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!”

“Let me tell you just a bit about my partner and me right now There's been an immense shift from him since our time with you. He is loving me by going with my rhythms and I'm in heaven. Both in bed and out of bed, he's gotten much more deeply grounded in himself and simply dropped the grabbing behavior/attitude. He's employing space and subtlety with a great deal of power and sensitivity! I'm happy inside and out. And his penetration to my g-spot continues to be ever more intense, fantastic, expansive. I had no idea such lusciousness could be the normal flow between a man and a woman. I'm utterly falling in love with him. And, of course, he is joyous and fully magnetized to me. It feels great. Oh, you have brought much, much blessing into our lives!”

“Your workshops and coaching transformed our marriage. 10 months ago we were on the verge of divorce. One of our core struggles was power and control in our sexual relationship. I had fears about being overpowered which caused me to take control, which in turn made him feel powerless and unable to get his needs met. I also had needs that I was not communicating, which left me feeling dissatisfied. Needless to say we had sex less and less, and when we did it typically ended badly. This caused my husband to spend time masturbating to porn on the internet, which left me feeling rejected and abandoned (and angry). A friend told us about your workshops, and we decided to enter Celeste and Danielle’s Sexuality Bootcamp as we fondly called it. We were determined to break through this pattern, regardless of the outcome of our relationship.

After my husband took Become an Extraordinary Lover™, levels 1 and 2, he said he learned more about what women want in 2 days than he had his entire life. He is almost 40. At first I expected him to practice his newly learned techniques on me, but then he explained his main takeaway was to help me express and better understand what MY needs were so that he could satisfy them! (You women truly are goddesses!) Thanks to this mind-set and the hands-on techniques he learned, we are achieving better and more powerful orgasms together and I feel heard and appreciated in a way I never had before.

The next breakthrough was when we attended the Tie Me Up + Spank Me workshop with 4 other couples. At first I was terrified. This was exactly the place I was stuck in our relationship, and I was worried I would have to do things that were uncomfortable while we explored our fantasies in front of strangers! In fact, it was quite liberating to share our fears and stories with others, as well as practice simple and fun techniques for telling each other our fantasies and learning how to act them out. I discovered my husband did not harbor scary dominating fantasies which I had feared, and he in turn, discovered a more sexually adventurous and open me than he ever imagined. This combined with me attending Embracing your Inner Sex Goddess allowed me to feel more comfortable in my body and expressing my needs. I found the role plays particularly helpful in learning to do this.

I am happy to say that our Sexuality Boot camp has had a huge impact on our relationship. We have more sex, it is much more pleasurable and now when the struggle for control rears its ugly head we work past it. I am much more open to pleasing my husband and meeting his needs and he mine. And we’re still together! I know several of my friends who have experienced your work have had similar results. I will be forever indebted to you for the tremendous love, care and commitment you put into the work you do in helping couples and individuals embrace their sexuality in a healthy, open way.”

Client
San Rafael, CA

“Before I came to see you, I was very unhappy with my relationship with my wife of over 30 years. I was unhappy with her sexual responsiveness and felt constantly criticized by her. I would collapse with the tone of her voice or even an expression could send me into a tailspin. My wife was no happier and had suggested separation.

All our 30 plus years of married life I tried to be the "good husband" by being the "nice guy." I tried so very hard to please her thinking that my tactic of trying to make everything ok would work. Needless to say, I failed most of the time. When she was unhappy or angry with me I would shut down, pout or disappear for a few days until she came and tried to patch things up with some make-up sex.

The results have been nothing short of remarkable. I have learned that what my wife needed in order to be a woman was for me to be a man. Once I started changing how I was with my wife, she challenged me to my core. I had no idea of how deeply I could be cut and still stand there and stay engaged with her while she pushed me to find out if I was really going to be a man she could count on and trust. She needed to know that she could be all sides of herself, the good, bad and ugly to see if I really cared about her and not just "the goodies."

I stayed with her for three weeks of the most intense emotional roller coaster I have ever been on. The ugly turned awesome and back again. After three weeks of receiving her on all levels, from all parts of herself, she collapsed in my arms, totally in love with me. Since then we have been like teenagers in love. I didn't realize how many times I could still have sex in a single day.

I regret all the years that I could have been a man for her and given her the pleasure of being a woman. But, no matter. What is important are the wonderful changes that I have experience in my work with you – I feel strong and centered in myself and my relationship with my wife just keeps getting better.”

Client
San Francisco, CA

This morning my wife and I had sex for the first time in almost 4 years, I think. A bit awkward, but very sweet. I would like to tell you more about it when I see you next, which I am already impatient to do."

Client
San Francisco, CA

"I want you to know how much change I feel that my wife and I are experiencing as a result of our sessions with you. I am not thinking only, or even primarily, about the work we are doing that relates directly to our lovemaking. I feel that we having an increased intimacy, an increased clarity, an increased understanding that flows from the time we are spending with you. We invariably comment to each other after we leave you how perceptive you are, how well you know us, how well you "get" us, how good you are at gently but firmly helping us to open up, push our boundaries a bit, try new things. And it is working.
Thank you so much for everything you are giving to us and sharing with us.
With love, respect and admiration.”

"This past Sunday I experienced orgasms so far beyond anything I have ever felt that afterwards I said to my husband (and myself) - "I'm sure I could have gone through my whole life and died without ever feeling like this!" Beyond the physical, the delight was also in being completely, selfishly absorbed in my own pleasure - no guilt or reservations. So a big THANKS!!!!!!!"

Client
North Bay, CA

“I cannot thank you enough for this weekend. I feel GREAT. I feel happy and excited and just different in my body. As I said on the first day, sexuality has been such a source of pain and sadness for me and in my relationship and I'm not sure what, but something shifted for me this weekend. Thank you!”

Client
Mountain View, CA

“For the first time I have been away on travel in the four and a half years I have known my husband, we talked for about an hour and he said, this is the FIRST time I have talked with you on the phone and I did not feel like ending the call! This has always been an issue for us, I feel I am talking and he does not want to connect, but I realized I talk about the to do list (what he is or is not getting done back home), he feels criticized, wants to get off the phone, I feel rejected, you get the picture! I realized I was using the to do list as a strategy to connect, not very seductive!”

“Since Level 1 I've been feeling powerful changes in my sense of being. A greater fullness, expansiveness, releasing and healing - and I know there's more to be done. There's several practices I've been doing to create more growth and change, and it's all integral, but the work with you is so powerful because it's so full-on action and experience, generating such intense energy – my heart's pounding as I think about it. It’s nothing short of transformational. I've been passionately desiring to aconnect with this for some time, and now that's it's happening, I feel like my life is really coming to a new level: one that I've been dreaming of, intuiting, and feeling the deep, purposeful drive towards. It's a greater awakening, and isn't it incredible? I know you've both experienced this: how when you step into that new place of being and look back at your former self and realize how relatively asleep (or a lesser version of your fuller self) you had been, doing your best to allow and not judge of course, because it's all unfolding in divine perfection. I admit I have thought how great it would have been if it had happened earlier, but who I am now and the experiences I've had leading up to this only benefit, deepen, and enrich my experience of it now and those to come. And it's so much fun! 🙂 Fun and scary and adventurous and high voltage; a diving-into-the-new kind of fear or scariness – I love courageous acts like that: boldly stepping out of one's comfort zone and beyond limitations. I feel like I'm starting to ramble. It's not that I've never experienced something enlightening before (and why do I feel the need to be qualifying this anyway?), but this is so embodied. "Erotic Embodiment" (to quote two wonderful women I've had the privilege of connecting with) describes it beautifully.

In erotically embodied bliss and gratitude.”

“I learned a great deal during the workshop, and I expected to learn some new things about women as well as some new skills to make me a better lover. Extraordinarily one of you noticed in the last manual stimulation exercise of the day, that at some stage I had disconnected part of myself from the experience and she asked if I had noticed. (I was quite astounded, but perhaps that level of awareness/presence is just another day in the office for you both!). I realize now that in the last exercise there was something about the experience that made me uncomfortable with what I was feeling and I put up a wall. I now see that within my relationships, I am holding something of myself back in many of them. As I become more intimate with someone (lover or friend) and connect with them, at a certain point there is a boundary where I stop being fully connected in certain situations, and I hold something back. What's interesting, is that this can only limit the potential intensity of connection, energy and experience with my partner (and is doing so). Now that I am aware of, and can recognize the change in, my internal presence/connection when it takes place, I will overcome it. An extraordinary experience, with extraordinary women, and an extraordinary realization has given me an extraordinarily wonderful start on this extraordinary journey to becoming an extraordinary lover.

“Thank you for an incredible day and experience. What a wonderful gift you are delivering to the world. The models were extraordinary. The one thing I was most impressed with during the whole class was that each of them showed truly remarkable communication skills in giving feedback to various men with a wide range of skill levels in ways that gave guidance for improvement and yet could always be received as positive and encouraging rather than critical. I'm very impressed that they were both able to do that so well, as it seems to me to be such a rare and tricky skill. Just having women willing and able to be so fully comfortable in a classroom setting is unusual enough, but adding in the personal, warmly delivered feedback made it a uniquely valuable learning opportunity. You were both clear, present, and warm. I was impressed with a sense that you both genuinely care about helping people have more fulfilling lives. I loved how you were gentle and respectful with shyer guys and yet ready to meet the more confident ones with full presence. You focused on the skills needed to actually have a fulfilling sex life with a woman. Thank you for doing this work!”

“You are both in my thoughts and heart every day.... I processed all three of the workshops on my drive home the next day. On August 14 I had a moment of clarity where I saw exactly what my relationship with women and myself had always been up until that point. In that moment I felt something rise up inside of me. It is hard to describe the feeling. But at that moment I felt a shift inside. I made a conscious decision to put all of my stories about women aside. It was a powerful moment. And I have gone forward from there.

I cannot describe in few words the healing that has taken place since that moment. I will say this - I recognize August 14, 2007 as one of the 5 most important days of my life, along with my birthday, etc. My time with you beautiful angels was instrumental in getting me to that moment, so you will always live rent free in my heart.”

Secondly you have taught me how to have staaaaayyying power throughout my love making experience. Third, I have learned the art of making love to my lover.... Slowly, methodically, with the deepest of breath..... we are both appreciative. Where were you 10 years ago. My Sex life and Sensual life will never be the same.”

I have been able to really acknowledge and celebrate my sexuality and to face up to my inhibitions and feelings of guilt about my sexual desires and arousals. For the first time I felt my sexuality was fully accepted, even the parts that I had thought of as 'kinky' and 'nasty'. My opening has had very positive implications for my sex life. I have gained skills in connecting with women and have much greater control over my ejaculation and sexual responsiveness.”

"I have to report that our work on my sexuality has changed how I am doing business. This afternoon, I was in a meeting with my partner and our CTO who was anxious and negative, which stopped him from using his creativity to solve some big technical problems. In your training, our work on staying present and open without defensiveness paid off.

I was able to graciously tell him how I wanted to improve our process and what I wanted from him. As he become defensive I was able to notice his body posture and voice without anxiety myself! I was able to stay with him, notice what was going on without internalizing the stress. The beauty of staying present without anxiety is that it allowed for a new level of creativity on my part!

… a little more embodied
… more connected
… more at peace
… more seductive
… more playful
… more likable
… more powerful
… more capable
………………need I go on?

In the end, you’re right... the point of our coaching on Sunday was not to make it easier to get laid. Experiencing this kind of freedom is much better than getting laid. Soon those qualities will be the things that not only “get me laid”, but also attract and keep passionately satisfied business clients, and attract more rich and fulfilling friendships of all kinds, and lead to fulfillment like I haven’t experienced before. That’s what it’s all about, right?

The Intensive, and the other work and workshops we’ve done, have been a big component of a new presence and enlightenment for me. I wanted to drop you a line to tell you how blessed I feel to have found you and grow so much with your guidance. You have good reason to be so damn proud ($$) of your work. Thank you for pursuing your bliss and sharing your genius and your powerful gifts with me.

"When I came to see you, you were so gentle and supportive. I never once felt judged or diminished in your presence. In fact, you were like a guiding light that opened me up and allowed me to be filled with the feminine compassion that I was so very hungry for.

What I learned from you in time was to feel more self satisfied and less hungry. I learned the ways I behaved to keep myself from being nourished and happy and began to change long-standing patterns.
What I remember most were the incredible conversations that reframed the way I looked at male/female relationships. The fact that you were willing to put yourself on the line, do intense role-playing and experiential work and stay fully present and engaged no matter how angry or hurt I felt, was what made all of the difference for me. It allowed me to actually take what I learned from you and begin to practice it in relationship with my wife."

There's several practices I've been doing to create more growth and change, and it's all integral, but the work with you is so powerful because it's so full-on action and experience, generating such intense energy – my heart's pounding as I think about it. It’s nothing short of transformational. I've been passionately desiring to aconnect with this for some time, and now that's it's happening, I feel like my life is really coming to a new level: one that I've been dreaming of, intuiting, and feeling the deep, purposeful drive towards. It's a greater awakening, and isn't it incredible? I know you've both experienced this: how when you step into that new place of being and look back at your former self and realize how relatively asleep (or a lesser version of your fuller self) you had been, doing your best to allow and not judge of course, because it's all unfolding in divine perfection. I admit I have thought how great it would have been if it had happened earlier, but who I am now and the experiences I've had leading up to this only benefit, deepen, and enrich my experience of it now and those to come. And it's so much fun! 🙂 Fun and scary and adventurous and high voltage; a diving-into-the-new kind of fear or scariness – I love courageous acts like that: boldly stepping out of one's comfort zone and beyond limitations. I feel like I'm starting to ramble. It's not that I've never experienced something enlightening before (and why do I feel the need to be qualifying this anyway?), but this is so embodied. "Erotic Embodiment" (to quote two wonderful women I've had the privilege of connecting with) describes it beautifully.

“I learned a great deal during the workshop, and I expected to learn some new things about women as well as some new skills to make me a better lover. Extraordinarily one of you noticed in the last manual stimulation exercise of the day, that at some stage I had disconnected part of myself from the experience and she asked if I had noticed. (I was quite astounded, but perhaps that level of awareness/presence is just another day in the office for you both!). I realize now that in the last exercise there was something about the experience that made me uncomfortable with what I was feeling and I put up a wall. I now see that within my relationships, I am holding something of myself back in many of them. As I become more intimate with someone (lover or friend) and connect with them, at a certain point there is a boundary where I stop being fully connected in certain situations, and I hold something back. What's interesting, is that this can only limit the potential intensity of connection, energy and experience with my partner (and is doing so). Now that I am aware of, and can recognize the change in, my internal presence/connection when it takes place, I will overcome it. An extraordinary experience, with extraordinary women, and an extraordinary realization has given me an extraordinarily wonderful start on this extraordinary journey to becoming an extraordinary lover.

Danielle and Celeste are masters of sexuality who guided me into powerful realizations about myself with compassion, skill and humor. There is no bullshit going on here – no ego trips, no cult-like pressure, just excellent instruction.”

Participant

Participant
Reno, NV

“Thank you for an incredible day and experience. What a wonderful gift you are delivering to the world. The models were extraordinary. The one thing I was most impressed with during the whole class was that each of them showed truly remarkable communication skills in giving feedback to various men with a wide range of skill levels in ways that gave guidance for improvement and yet could always be received as positive and encouraging rather than critical. I'm very impressed that they were both able to do that so well, as it seems to me to be such a rare and tricky skill. Just having women willing and able to be so fully comfortable in a classroom setting is unusual enough, but adding in the personal, warmly delivered feedback made it a uniquely valuable learning opportunity. You were both clear, present, and warm. I was impressed with a sense that you both genuinely care about helping people have more fulfilling lives. I loved how you were gentle and respectful with shyer guys and yet ready to meet the more confident ones with full presence. You focused on the skills needed to actually have a fulfilling sex life with a woman. Thank you for doing this work!”

Participant

Participant
Utah, NV

“The best part of the workshop for me was working with directing energy in the body and getting to freely explore touch and arousal with the models.”

Participant
Los Angeles, CA

“You are both in my thoughts and heart every day.... I processed all three of the workshops on my drive home the next day. On August 14 I had a moment of clarity where I saw exactly what my relationship with women and myself had always been up until that point. In that moment I felt something rise up inside of me. It is hard to describe the feeling. But at that moment I felt a shift inside. I made a conscious decision to put all of my stories about women aside. It was a powerful moment. And I have gone forward from there.

I cannot describe in few words the healing that has taken place since that moment. I will say this - I recognize August 14, 2007 as one of the 5 most important days of my life, along with my birthday, etc. My time with you beautiful angels was instrumental in getting me to that moment, so you will always live rent free in my heart.”

Participant
San Diego, CA

“It is a very empowering course.”

Participant
Burlingame, CA

"The recurring thought since the men's level 1 seminar I attended is, 'Toto, we are DEFINITELY not in Kansas, anymore!'. I could not have asked for more. My journey is to free my thinking and actions from old scripts to the realm of what is possible. Your seminar was a wonderful step along the path. I'm glad I committed to the trip. I'm glad the airlines would not let me leave before the seminar due to hurricane damage concerns and I'm glad you folks swing for the fences. Thank you for an excellent instructive experience."

“Just a quick note to say thank you for the more aware, more caring and tender husband I received at home last night. He was very excited about his experience and shared some of what he learned, it was great. I told him it felt like he had done a personal development workshop in which he expanded his consciousness, not just learned techniques. I look forward to doing the same so we can create a stronger relationship together. Thank you thank you!”

I am doing well and just wanted to give you a small update. I just started seeing this man, who so far seems pretty amazing. Most importantly, I wanted to share with you some details 🙂

Before our first date, I was a bundle of nerves. Before he arrived, I went into my room where I have a full length mirror. I danced with myself, sensually, as we did in our first session together, to get reconnected to my sexuality again. I cherished every aspect of my body and knew it could drive him wild. I did this again before our second date. It really makes a difference. I have used the breathing techniques that we went through and when it came to being intimate, I was scared and excited all at once. I chose not to have intercourse with him that night but I did enjoy everything he was doing and maybe more importantly for me, was that I felt like a sex kitten when I began to explore him. I have never had that much confidence when I was with a man! I let my hair fall over him, I used my breasts to caress him and I teased him till he couldn't take it anymore! I felt so in control and sexy and beautiful and I have you to thank for that.

I treasure our sessions together as they really helped me grow out of a space I was ready to leave and into my new space. Anyway, thought you might enjoy the update...stay tuned for more fun. Loads more practice needed but a VERY successful first attempt after years of nothing.

All my gratitude to you my beautiful sister!

This has always been an issue for us, I feel I am talking and he does not want to connect, but I realized I talk about the to do list (what he is or is not getting done back home), he feels criticized, wants to get off the phone, I feel rejected, you get the picture! I realized I was using the to do list as a strategy to connect, not very seductive!”

I've discovered I am a sexual being and gained the courage and confidence to express all of myself

Somatica has been hugely transformational for me both personally and professionally.Before becoming a practitioner, I was a client who experienced very low desire and believed I was not a sexual being. I feel sadness as I remember the false beliefs I thought were true. So not true! I've discovered I am a sexual being and gained the courage and confidence to express all of myself. I also learned to be vulnerable in my relationships. Because of my own personal transformation, I decided Somatica was the work that I wanted to do in the world and I love what I do! My ongoing training in the method continues to increase my skills as a practitioner and expand my understanding of myself as a sexual being.

Dalia, Somatica Core Training, 2013
Berkeley, CA

The healing is profound and touches all parts of one's life

Celeste & Danielle have created a revolutionary approach to transformation. Because it dives deeply into the vulnerable and guarded realms of sexuality, the healing is profound and touches all parts of one's life. The process of being in a relationship with a practitioner while finding one's own individual humanity allows more self-love and acceptance. Leading an individual into embracing and loving the human they are, living in a world where desires can be embraced, mistakes become learning and life is a continual journey of curious exploration.

H.R, Somatica Core Training, 2012

Celeste and Danielle are frequent fliers on the Sex With Emily podcast and are two of my favorite guests. They present informative, insightful information in a relatable way that is easily digestible and extremely helpful to my audience's most common questions.

Dr. Emily Morse, host of the Sex With Emily podcast

When I interview Danielle and Celeste, it’s like this exquisite balance of energies, a dance of wisdom, a hot erotic authentic sacred tapestry of possibility in relationships, sex… even on how to parent my teenage son! I walk away feeling juicy, empowered and more ME! Definitely book them.

Dr. Liam Snowdon, Professor at the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality

I can’t believe no one ever gave me this information about women before. I went home and practiced with my partner and we had more passionate sex than we’ve ever had.

Somatica Client

Since we worked with you, my wife is an orgasm machine. I can barely keep up with her!”

Client, South Bay

Thanks so much for putting me in touch with Keeley. We just wrapped up our intensive yesterday, and it was one of the most deeply nourishing experiences I've ever had. She's a wonderful, wonderful person and a skilled therapist, and the Somatica technique enabled a level of emotional exploration I've never reached before in years of talk therapy. You and Danielle are doing great, important work, and you're clearly superb teachers.

Client

Just wanted to follow up and let you know how much those sessions have helped me both mentally and physically. Since I've been back I have put them into practice in my relationship and it has been "mind blowing." (Her words not mine.) I feel myself being a lot more attentive to my desires and needs and vocalizing them - and doing that has been received really well and heightened pleasure for both of us. I know part of it is being in a healthier relationship but I also know that the insight you gave me and the corresponding confidence I now feel has changed my life.  I feel so much more at peace and am allowing my inner "freak" to come out a little more each day, LOL!

Client, Washington, DC

You are very, very good at what you do - not just the sexual training part but your broader understanding of human need and your capacity for empathy and acceptance. I feel very lucky to have met you.

Tantra and Sexological Bodwork provided me with embodiment skills and understanding the importance of breath, sound and movement.

I experienced three significant transformations: from feeling unattractive to embodying a deep knowledge of my own sexiness, from feeling deficient and inadequate to knowing I am beautiful safe wanted and appreciated, and from being frustrated and single to living with my life partner. Dimitry's presence, sensitivity and courage made our sessions safe and truly transformative."

I felt very seen by you and able to really get in touch with how my work is affecting me and what I want to get out of my sessions with you, namely, that I want to integrate the opening and joy and aliveness that I feel in intimacy and sensuality with my clients into my daily life. I really appreciate how intuitive it felt like you were and your sensitive nature. Thank you.”

“Just had to send you an update... I kissed her last night. 🙂 You were so right. And to think that I wanted to pull back because I thought she wasn't attracted to me. It's a good thing that I was in the right frame of mind after talking to you, so that I could react positively to her. I think it made all the difference. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!”

"After having spent months and years in talk therapy, both individual and group (which I gave up on years ago), I was a little skeptical that my work with you would bear much fruit, especially in the short run. But now, I begin to appreciate the powerful forces you have learned how to tap into, and what a direct path they can open into healing. My experience the other day left me tingling with excitement, and feeling an unfamiliar sense of hope and optimism. I had thought that I had pretty much banished the feeling of shame that was instilled in me growing up, but now I see that I had merely bandaged it up with a tight dressing, along with a bunch of good things that shame had attached itself to. Pretty amazing. And I feel that I am just getting started with this process, and with what you can help me discover."

“I want you to know that in our four sessions, I have learned so much about myself .... far more than I ever expected. I think there are a lot of elements to self-discovery including self knowledge, timing, desire, effort and openness to change - but a lot of it has to do with the skill, intelligence and warmth of the coach. Much of what I am experiencing in our sessions I already knew on a cognitive level but what makes it a revelation is to really experience it.”

"Thanks for your good heart, and incredibly empathetic and attentive listening - the freedom and quality of discussion with you is probably unmatched for me - the human side of healing is so important and so overlooked in conventional modern medicine and even in other modes of healing depending on the individuals involved. Please don't ever under-estimate this fact about yourself and what you offer, it goes so far beyond just the facts and knowledge of learned information, you have offered a more human gift that you share which I appreciate a lot."

“Let me tell you just a bit about my partner and me right now There's been an immense shift from him since our time with you. He is loving me by going with my rhythms and I'm in heaven. Both in bed and out of bed, he's gotten much more deeply grounded in himself and simply dropped the grabbing behavior/attitude. He's employing space and subtlety with a great deal of power and sensitivity! I'm happy inside and out. And his penetration to my g-spot continues to be ever more intense, fantastic, expansive. I had no idea such lusciousness could be the normal flow between a man and a woman. I'm utterly falling in love with him. And, of course, he is joyous and fully magnetized to me. It feels great. Oh, you have brought much, much blessing into our lives!”

“Your workshops and coaching transformed our marriage. 10 months ago we were on the verge of divorce. One of our core struggles was power and control in our sexual relationship. I had fears about being overpowered which caused me to take control, which in turn made him feel powerless and unable to get his needs met. I also had needs that I was not communicating, which left me feeling dissatisfied. Needless to say we had sex less and less, and when we did it typically ended badly. This caused my husband to spend time masturbating to porn on the internet, which left me feeling rejected and abandoned (and angry). A friend told us about your workshops, and we decided to enter Celeste and Danielle’s Sexuality Bootcamp as we fondly called it. We were determined to break through this pattern, regardless of the outcome of our relationship.

After my husband took Become an Extraordinary Lover™, levels 1 and 2, he said he learned more about what women want in 2 days than he had his entire life. He is almost 40. At first I expected him to practice his newly learned techniques on me, but then he explained his main takeaway was to help me express and better understand what MY needs were so that he could satisfy them! (You women truly are goddesses!) Thanks to this mind-set and the hands-on techniques he learned, we are achieving better and more powerful orgasms together and I feel heard and appreciated in a way I never had before.

The next breakthrough was when we attended the Tie Me Up + Spank Me workshop with 4 other couples. At first I was terrified. This was exactly the place I was stuck in our relationship, and I was worried I would have to do things that were uncomfortable while we explored our fantasies in front of strangers! In fact, it was quite liberating to share our fears and stories with others, as well as practice simple and fun techniques for telling each other our fantasies and learning how to act them out. I discovered my husband did not harbor scary dominating fantasies which I had feared, and he in turn, discovered a more sexually adventurous and open me than he ever imagined. This combined with me attending Embracing your Inner Sex Goddess allowed me to feel more comfortable in my body and expressing my needs. I found the role plays particularly helpful in learning to do this.

I am happy to say that our Sexuality Boot camp has had a huge impact on our relationship. We have more sex, it is much more pleasurable and now when the struggle for control rears its ugly head we work past it. I am much more open to pleasing my husband and meeting his needs and he mine. And we’re still together! I know several of my friends who have experienced your work have had similar results. I will be forever indebted to you for the tremendous love, care and commitment you put into the work you do in helping couples and individuals embrace their sexuality in a healthy, open way.”

“Before I came to see you, I was very unhappy with my relationship with my wife of over 30 years. I was unhappy with her sexual responsiveness and felt constantly criticized by her. I would collapse with the tone of her voice or even an expression could send me into a tailspin. My wife was no happier and had suggested separation.

All our 30 plus years of married life I tried to be the "good husband" by being the "nice guy." I tried so very hard to please her thinking that my tactic of trying to make everything ok would work. Needless to say, I failed most of the time. When she was unhappy or angry with me I would shut down, pout or disappear for a few days until she came and tried to patch things up with some make-up sex.

The results have been nothing short of remarkable. I have learned that what my wife needed in order to be a woman was for me to be a man. Once I started changing how I was with my wife, she challenged me to my core. I had no idea of how deeply I could be cut and still stand there and stay engaged with her while she pushed me to find out if I was really going to be a man she could count on and trust. She needed to know that she could be all sides of herself, the good, bad and ugly to see if I really cared about her and not just "the goodies."

I stayed with her for three weeks of the most intense emotional roller coaster I have ever been on. The ugly turned awesome and back again. After three weeks of receiving her on all levels, from all parts of herself, she collapsed in my arms, totally in love with me. Since then we have been like teenagers in love. I didn't realize how many times I could still have sex in a single day.

I regret all the years that I could have been a man for her and given her the pleasure of being a woman. But, no matter. What is important are the wonderful changes that I have experience in my work with you – I feel strong and centered in myself and my relationship with my wife just keeps getting better.”

I am not thinking only, or even primarily, about the work we are doing that relates directly to our lovemaking. I feel that we having an increased intimacy, an increased clarity, an increased understanding that flows from the time we are spending with you. We invariably comment to each other after we leave you how perceptive you are, how well you know us, how well you "get" us, how good you are at gently but firmly helping us to open up, push our boundaries a bit, try new things. And it is working.
Thank you so much for everything you are giving to us and sharing with us.

“Since Level 1 I've been feeling powerful changes in my sense of being. A greater fullness, expansiveness, releasing and healing - and I know there's more to be done. There's several practices I've been doing to create more growth and change, and it's all integral, but the work with you is so powerful because it's so full-on action and experience, generating such intense energy – my heart's pounding as I think about it. It’s nothing short of transformational. I've been passionately desiring to aconnect with this for some time, and now that's it's happening, I feel like my life is really coming to a new level: one that I've been dreaming of, intuiting, and feeling the deep, purposeful drive towards. It's a greater awakening, and isn't it incredible? I know you've both experienced this: how when you step into that new place of being and look back at your former self and realize how relatively asleep (or a lesser version of your fuller self) you had been, doing your best to allow and not judge of course, because it's all unfolding in divine perfection. I admit I have thought how great it would have been if it had happened earlier, but who I am now and the experiences I've had leading up to this only benefit, deepen, and enrich my experience of it now and those to come. And it's so much fun! 🙂 Fun and scary and adventurous and high voltage; a diving-into-the-new kind of fear or scariness – I love courageous acts like that: boldly stepping out of one's comfort zone and beyond limitations. I feel like I'm starting to ramble. It's not that I've never experienced something enlightening before (and why do I feel the need to be qualifying this anyway?), but this is so embodied. "Erotic Embodiment" (to quote two wonderful women I've had the privilege of connecting with) describes it beautifully.

In erotically embodied bliss and gratitude.”

“I learned a great deal during the workshop, and I expected to learn some new things about women as well as some new skills to make me a better lover. Extraordinarily one of you noticed in the last manual stimulation exercise of the day, that at some stage I had disconnected part of myself from the experience and she asked if I had noticed. (I was quite astounded, but perhaps that level of awareness/presence is just another day in the office for you both!). I realize now that in the last exercise there was something about the experience that made me uncomfortable with what I was feeling and I put up a wall. I now see that within my relationships, I am holding something of myself back in many of them. As I become more intimate with someone (lover or friend) and connect with them, at a certain point there is a boundary where I stop being fully connected in certain situations, and I hold something back. What's interesting, is that this can only limit the potential intensity of connection, energy and experience with my partner (and is doing so). Now that I am aware of, and can recognize the change in, my internal presence/connection when it takes place, I will overcome it. An extraordinary experience, with extraordinary women, and an extraordinary realization has given me an extraordinarily wonderful start on this extraordinary journey to becoming an extraordinary lover.

“Thank you for an incredible day and experience. What a wonderful gift you are delivering to the world. The models were extraordinary. The one thing I was most impressed with during the whole class was that each of them showed truly remarkable communication skills in giving feedback to various men with a wide range of skill levels in ways that gave guidance for improvement and yet could always be received as positive and encouraging rather than critical. I'm very impressed that they were both able to do that so well, as it seems to me to be such a rare and tricky skill. Just having women willing and able to be so fully comfortable in a classroom setting is unusual enough, but adding in the personal, warmly delivered feedback made it a uniquely valuable learning opportunity. You were both clear, present, and warm. I was impressed with a sense that you both genuinely care about helping people have more fulfilling lives. I loved how you were gentle and respectful with shyer guys and yet ready to meet the more confident ones with full presence. You focused on the skills needed to actually have a fulfilling sex life with a woman. Thank you for doing this work!”

“You are both in my thoughts and heart every day.... I processed all three of the workshops on my drive home the next day. On August 14 I had a moment of clarity where I saw exactly what my relationship with women and myself had always been up until that point. In that moment I felt something rise up inside of me. It is hard to describe the feeling. But at that moment I felt a shift inside. I made a conscious decision to put all of my stories about women aside. It was a powerful moment. And I have gone forward from there.

I cannot describe in few words the healing that has taken place since that moment. I will say this - I recognize August 14, 2007 as one of the 5 most important days of my life, along with my birthday, etc. My time with you beautiful angels was instrumental in getting me to that moment, so you will always live rent free in my heart.”

I have been able to really acknowledge and celebrate my sexuality and to face up to my inhibitions and feelings of guilt about my sexual desires and arousals. For the first time I felt my sexuality was fully accepted, even the parts that I had thought of as 'kinky' and 'nasty'. My opening has had very positive implications for my sex life. I have gained skills in connecting with women and have much greater control over my ejaculation and sexual responsiveness.”

"I have to report that our work on my sexuality has changed how I am doing business. This afternoon, I was in a meeting with my partner and our CTO who was anxious and negative, which stopped him from using his creativity to solve some big technical problems. In your training, our work on staying present and open without defensiveness paid off.

I was able to graciously tell him how I wanted to improve our process and what I wanted from him. As he become defensive I was able to notice his body posture and voice without anxiety myself! I was able to stay with him, notice what was going on without internalizing the stress. The beauty of staying present without anxiety is that it allowed for a new level of creativity on my part!

… a little more embodied
… more connected
… more at peace
… more seductive
… more playful
… more likable
… more powerful
… more capable
………………need I go on?

In the end, you’re right... the point of our coaching on Sunday was not to make it easier to get laid. Experiencing this kind of freedom is much better than getting laid. Soon those qualities will be the things that not only “get me laid”, but also attract and keep passionately satisfied business clients, and attract more rich and fulfilling friendships of all kinds, and lead to fulfillment like I haven’t experienced before. That’s what it’s all about, right?

The Intensive, and the other work and workshops we’ve done, have been a big component of a new presence and enlightenment for me. I wanted to drop you a line to tell you how blessed I feel to have found you and grow so much with your guidance. You have good reason to be so damn proud ($$) of your work.

"When I came to see you, you were so gentle and supportive. I never once felt judged or diminished in your presence. In fact, you were like a guiding light that opened me up and allowed me to be filled with the feminine compassion that I was so very hungry for.

What I learned from you in time was to feel more self satisfied and less hungry. I learned the ways I behaved to keep myself from being nourished and happy and began to change long-standing patterns.
What I remember most were the incredible conversations that reframed the way I looked at male/female relationships. The fact that you were willing to put yourself on the line, do intense role-playing and experiential work and stay fully present and engaged no matter how angry or hurt I felt, was what made all of the difference for me. It allowed me to actually take what I learned from you and begin to practice it in relationship with my wife."

Both in bed and out of bed, he's gotten much more deeply grounded in himself and simply dropped the grabbing behavior/attitude. He's employing space and subtlety with a great deal of power and sensitivity! I'm happy inside and out. And his penetration to my g-spot continues to be ever more intense, fantastic, expansive. I had no idea such lusciousness could be the normal flow between a man and a woman. I'm utterly falling in love with him. And, of course, he is joyous and fully magnetized to me. It feels great.

“Your workshops and coaching transformed our marriage. 10 months ago we were on the verge of divorce. One of our core struggles was power and control in our sexual relationship. I had fears about being overpowered which caused me to take control, which in turn made him feel powerless and unable to get his needs met. I also had needs that I was not communicating, which left me feeling dissatisfied. Needless to say we had sex less and less, and when we did it typically ended badly. This caused my husband to spend time masturbating to porn on the internet, which left me feeling rejected and abandoned (and angry). A friend told us about your workshops, and we decided to enter Celeste and Danielle’s Sexuality Bootcamp as we fondly called it. We were determined to break through this pattern, regardless of the outcome of our relationship.

After my husband took Become an Extraordinary Lover™, levels 1 and 2, he said he learned more about what women want in 2 days than he had his entire life. He is almost 40. At first I expected him to practice his newly learned techniques on me, but then he explained his main takeaway was to help me express and better understand what MY needs were so that he could satisfy them! (You women truly are goddesses!) Thanks to this mind-set and the hands-on techniques he learned, we are achieving better and more powerful orgasms together and I feel heard and appreciated in a way I never had before.

The next breakthrough was when we attended the Tie Me Up + Spank Me workshop with 4 other couples. At first I was terrified. This was exactly the place I was stuck in our relationship, and I was worried I would have to do things that were uncomfortable while we explored our fantasies in front of strangers! In fact, it was quite liberating to share our fears and stories with others, as well as practice simple and fun techniques for telling each other our fantasies and learning how to act them out. I discovered my husband did not harbor scary dominating fantasies which I had feared, and he in turn, discovered a more sexually adventurous and open me than he ever imagined. This combined with me attending Embracing your Inner Sex Goddess allowed me to feel more comfortable in my body and expressing my needs. I found the role plays particularly helpful in learning to do this.

I am happy to say that our Sexuality Boot camp has had a huge impact on our relationship. We have more sex, it is much more pleasurable and now when the struggle for control rears its ugly head we work past it. I am much more open to pleasing my husband and meeting his needs and he mine.

I would collapse with the tone of her voice or even an expression could send me into a tailspin. My wife was no happier and had suggested separation.

All our 30 plus years of married life I tried to be the "good husband" by being the "nice guy." I tried so very hard to please her thinking that my tactic of trying to make everything ok would work. Needless to say, I failed most of the time. When she was unhappy or angry with me I would shut down, pout or disappear for a few days until she came and tried to patch things up with some make-up sex.

The results have been nothing short of remarkable. I have learned that what my wife needed in order to be a woman was for me to be a man. Once I started changing how I was with my wife, she challenged me to my core. I had no idea of how deeply I could be cut and still stand there and stay engaged with her while she pushed me to find out if I was really going to be a man she could count on and trust. She needed to know that she could be all sides of herself, the good, bad and ugly to see if I really cared about her and not just "the goodies."

I stayed with her for three weeks of the most intense emotional roller coaster I have ever been on. The ugly turned awesome and back again. After three weeks of receiving her on all levels, from all parts of herself, she collapsed in my arms, totally in love with me. Since then we have been like teenagers in love. I didn't realize how many times I could still have sex in a single day.

I regret all the years that I could have been a man for her and given her the pleasure of being a woman. But, no matter.

I've discovered I am a sexual being and gained the courage and confidence to express all of myself

Somatica has been hugely transformational for me both personally and professionally.Before becoming a practitioner, I was a client who experienced very low desire and believed I was not a sexual being. I feel sadness as I remember the false beliefs I thought were true. So not true! I've discovered I am a sexual being and gained the courage and confidence to express all of myself. I also learned to be vulnerable in my relationships. Because of my own personal transformation, I decided Somatica was the work that I wanted to do in the world and I love what I do! My ongoing training in the method continues to increase my skills as a practitioner and expand my understanding of myself as a sexual being.

Dalia, Somatica Core Training, 2013

The healing is profound and touches all parts of one's life

Celeste & Danielle have created a revolutionary approach to transformation. Because it dives deeply into the vulnerable and guarded realms of sexuality, the healing is profound and touches all parts of one's life. The process of being in a relationship with a practitioner while finding one's own individual humanity allows more self-love and acceptance. Leading an individual into embracing and loving the human they are, living in a world where desires can be embraced, mistakes become learning and life is a continual journey of curious exploration.

H.R, Somatica Core Training, 2012

Celeste and Danielle are frequent fliers on the Sex With Emily podcast and are two of my favorite guests. They present informative, insightful information in a relatable way that is easily digestible and extremely helpful to my audience's most common questions.

Dr. Emily Morse, host of the Sex With Emily podcast

When I interview Danielle and Celeste, it’s like this exquisite balance of energies, a dance of wisdom, a hot erotic authentic sacred tapestry of possibility in relationships, sex… even on how to parent my teenage son! I walk away feeling juicy, empowered and more ME! Definitely book them.

I can’t believe no one ever gave me this information about women before. I went home and practiced with my partner and we had more passionate sex than we’ve ever had.

Since we worked with you, my wife is an orgasm machine. I can barely keep up with her!”

Client, South Bay

Thanks so much for putting me in touch with Keeley. We just wrapped up our intensive yesterday, and it was one of the most deeply nourishing experiences I've ever had. She's a wonderful, wonderful person and a skilled therapist, and the Somatica technique enabled a level of emotional exploration I've never reached before in years of talk therapy. You and Danielle are doing great, important work, and you're clearly superb teachers.

Client

Just wanted to follow up and let you know how much those sessions have helped me both mentally and physically. Since I've been back I have put them into practice in my relationship and it has been "mind blowing." (Her words not mine.) I feel myself being a lot more attentive to my desires and needs and vocalizing them - and doing that has been received really well and heightened pleasure for both of us. I know part of it is being in a healthier relationship but I also know that the insight you gave me and the corresponding confidence I now feel has changed my life.  I feel so much more at peace and am allowing my inner "freak" to come out a little more each day, LOL!

Client, Washington, DC

You are very, very good at what you do - not just the sexual training part but your broader understanding of human need and your capacity for empathy and acceptance. I feel very lucky to have met you.

Tantra and Sexological Bodwork provided me with embodiment skills and understanding the importance of breath, sound and movement.

I am doing well and just wanted to give you a small update. I just started seeing this man, who so far seems pretty amazing. Most importantly, I wanted to share with you some details 🙂

Before our first date, I was a bundle of nerves. Before he arrived, I went into my room where I have a full length mirror. I danced with myself, sensually, as we did in our first session together, to get reconnected to my sexuality again. I cherished every aspect of my body and knew it could drive him wild. I did this again before our second date. It really makes a difference. I have used the breathing techniques that we went through and when it came to being intimate, I was scared and excited all at once. I chose not to have intercourse with him that night but I did enjoy everything he was doing and maybe more importantly for me, was that I felt like a sex kitten when I began to explore him. I have never had that much confidence when I was with a man! I let my hair fall over him, I used my breasts to caress him and I teased him till he couldn't take it anymore! I felt so in control and sexy and beautiful and I have you to thank for that.

I treasure our sessions together as they really helped me grow out of a space I was ready to leave and into my new space. Anyway, thought you might enjoy the update...stay tuned for more fun. Loads more practice needed but a VERY successful first attempt after years of nothing.

All my gratitude to you my beautiful sister!

I experienced three significant transformations: from feeling unattractive to embodying a deep knowledge of my own sexiness, from feeling deficient and inadequate to knowing I am beautiful safe wanted and appreciated, and from being frustrated and single to living with my life partner. Dimitry's presence, sensitivity and courage made our sessions safe and truly transformative."

"After having spent months and years in talk therapy, both individual and group (which I gave up on years ago), I was a little skeptical that my work with you would bear much fruit, especially in the short run. But now, I begin to appreciate the powerful forces you have learned how to tap into, and what a direct path they can open into healing. My experience the other day left me tingling with excitement, and feeling an unfamiliar sense of hope and optimism. I had thought that I had pretty much banished the feeling of shame that was instilled in me growing up, but now I see that I had merely bandaged it up with a tight dressing, along with a bunch of good things that shame had attached itself to. Pretty amazing. And I feel that I am just getting started with this process, and with what you can help me discover."

I think there are a lot of elements to self-discovery including self knowledge, timing, desire, effort and openness to change - but a lot of it has to do with the skill, intelligence and warmth of the coach. Much of what I am experiencing in our sessions I already knew on a cognitive level but what makes it a revelation is to really experience it.”

Client
Santa Rosa, CA

"Thanks for your good heart, and incredibly empathetic and attentive listening - the freedom and quality of discussion with you is probably unmatched for me - the human side of healing is so important and so overlooked in conventional modern medicine and even in other modes of healing depending on the individuals involved.

I am not thinking only, or even primarily, about the work we are doing that relates directly to our lovemaking. I feel that we having an increased intimacy, an increased clarity, an increased understanding that flows from the time we are spending with you. We invariably comment to each other after we leave you how perceptive you are, how well you know us, how well you "get" us, how good you are at gently but firmly helping us to open up, push our boundaries a bit, try new things. And it is working.
Thank you so much for everything you are giving to us and sharing with us.
With love, respect and admiration.”

This has always been an issue for us, I feel I am talking and he does not want to connect, but I realized I talk about the to do list (what he is or is not getting done back home), he feels criticized, wants to get off the phone, I feel rejected, you get the picture!

“Since Level 1 I've been feeling powerful changes in my sense of being. A greater fullness, expansiveness, releasing and healing - and I know there's more to be done. There's several practices I've been doing to create more growth and change, and it's all integral, but the work with you is so powerful because it's so full-on action and experience, generating such intense energy – my heart's pounding as I think about it. It’s nothing short of transformational. I've been passionately desiring to aconnect with this for some time, and now that's it's happening, I feel like my life is really coming to a new level: one that I've been dreaming of, intuiting, and feeling the deep, purposeful drive towards. It's a greater awakening, and isn't it incredible? I know you've both experienced this: how when you step into that new place of being and look back at your former self and realize how relatively asleep (or a lesser version of your fuller self) you had been, doing your best to allow and not judge of course, because it's all unfolding in divine perfection. I admit I have thought how great it would have been if it had happened earlier, but who I am now and the experiences I've had leading up to this only benefit, deepen, and enrich my experience of it now and those to come. And it's so much fun! 🙂 Fun and scary and adventurous and high voltage; a diving-into-the-new kind of fear or scariness – I love courageous acts like that: boldly stepping out of one's comfort zone and beyond limitations. I feel like I'm starting to ramble. It's not that I've never experienced something enlightening before (and why do I feel the need to be qualifying this anyway?), but this is so embodied. "Erotic Embodiment" (to quote two wonderful women I've had the privilege of connecting with) describes it beautifully.

In erotically embodied bliss and gratitude.”

“I learned a great deal during the workshop, and I expected to learn some new things about women as well as some new skills to make me a better lover. Extraordinarily one of you noticed in the last manual stimulation exercise of the day, that at some stage I had disconnected part of myself from the experience and she asked if I had noticed. (I was quite astounded, but perhaps that level of awareness/presence is just another day in the office for you both!). I realize now that in the last exercise there was something about the experience that made me uncomfortable with what I was feeling and I put up a wall. I now see that within my relationships, I am holding something of myself back in many of them. As I become more intimate with someone (lover or friend) and connect with them, at a certain point there is a boundary where I stop being fully connected in certain situations, and I hold something back. What's interesting, is that this can only limit the potential intensity of connection, energy and experience with my partner (and is doing so). Now that I am aware of, and can recognize the change in, my internal presence/connection when it takes place, I will overcome it. An extraordinary experience, with extraordinary women, and an extraordinary realization has given me an extraordinarily wonderful start on this extraordinary journey to becoming an extraordinary lover.

“Thank you for an incredible day and experience. What a wonderful gift you are delivering to the world. The models were extraordinary. The one thing I was most impressed with during the whole class was that each of them showed truly remarkable communication skills in giving feedback to various men with a wide range of skill levels in ways that gave guidance for improvement and yet could always be received as positive and encouraging rather than critical. I'm very impressed that they were both able to do that so well, as it seems to me to be such a rare and tricky skill. Just having women willing and able to be so fully comfortable in a classroom setting is unusual enough, but adding in the personal, warmly delivered feedback made it a uniquely valuable learning opportunity. You were both clear, present, and warm. I was impressed with a sense that you both genuinely care about helping people have more fulfilling lives. I loved how you were gentle and respectful with shyer guys and yet ready to meet the more confident ones with full presence. You focused on the skills needed to actually have a fulfilling sex life with a woman. Thank you for doing this work!”

“You are both in my thoughts and heart every day.... I processed all three of the workshops on my drive home the next day. On August 14 I had a moment of clarity where I saw exactly what my relationship with women and myself had always been up until that point. In that moment I felt something rise up inside of me. It is hard to describe the feeling. But at that moment I felt a shift inside. I made a conscious decision to put all of my stories about women aside. It was a powerful moment. And I have gone forward from there.

I cannot describe in few words the healing that has taken place since that moment. I will say this - I recognize August 14, 2007 as one of the 5 most important days of my life, along with my birthday, etc. My time with you beautiful angels was instrumental in getting me to that moment, so you will always live rent free in my heart.”

In 5 short sessions, you have taught me first how to be a lover of my own body so that I could experience an orgasm from my fingers to my toes. Wow what a feeling. Secondly you have taught me how to have staaaaayyying power throughout my love making experience. Third, I have learned the art of making love to my lover.... Slowly, methodically, with the deepest of breath..... we are both appreciative. Where were you 10 years ago. My Sex life and Sensual life will never be the same.”

“My experience with your coaching has made a profound difference in my life. I have allowed myself to explore and to awaken parts of my erotic self that had been repressed or blocked for most of my life. I have been able to really acknowledge and celebrate my sexuality and to face up to my inhibitions and feelings of guilt about my sexual desires and arousals. For the first time I felt my sexuality was fully accepted, even the parts that I had thought of as 'kinky' and 'nasty'. My opening has had very positive implications for my sex life. I have gained skills in connecting with women and have much greater control over my ejaculation and sexual responsiveness.”

Client
Montpelier, VT

"I have to report that our work on my sexuality has changed how I am doing business. This afternoon, I was in a meeting with my partner and our CTO who was anxious and negative, which stopped him from using his creativity to solve some big technical problems. In your training, our work on staying present and open without defensiveness paid off.

I was able to graciously tell him how I wanted to improve our process and what I wanted from him. As he become defensive I was able to notice his body posture and voice without anxiety myself! I was able to stay with him, notice what was going on without internalizing the stress. The beauty of staying present without anxiety is that it allowed for a new level of creativity on my part!

My partner later commented that my intervention felt very CEOish."

“After our intensive, I have been trying to check-in with myself and see how I feel this week. I think I notice a little more swagger in my step … not like cocky, just feeling a little more complete.
Feeling a little more present…
… a little more like an adult
… a little less reserved
… a little more embodied
… more connected
… more at peace
… more seductive
… more playful
… more likable
… more powerful
… more capable
………………need I go on?

In the end, you’re right... the point of our coaching on Sunday was not to make it easier to get laid. Experiencing this kind of freedom is much better than getting laid. Soon those qualities will be the things that not only “get me laid”, but also attract and keep passionately satisfied business clients, and attract more rich and fulfilling friendships of all kinds, and lead to fulfillment like I haven’t experienced before. That’s what it’s all about, right?

The Intensive, and the other work and workshops we’ve done, have been a big component of a new presence and enlightenment for me. I wanted to drop you a line to tell you how blessed I feel to have found you and grow so much with your guidance. You have good reason to be so damn proud ($$) of your work. Thank you for pursuing your bliss and sharing your genius and your powerful gifts with me.

"When I came to see you, you were so gentle and supportive. I never once felt judged or diminished in your presence. In fact, you were like a guiding light that opened me up and allowed me to be filled with the feminine compassion that I was so very hungry for.

What I learned from you in time was to feel more self satisfied and less hungry. I learned the ways I behaved to keep myself from being nourished and happy and began to change long-standing patterns.
What I remember most were the incredible conversations that reframed the way I looked at male/female relationships. The fact that you were willing to put yourself on the line, do intense role-playing and experiential work and stay fully present and engaged no matter how angry or hurt I felt, was what made all of the difference for me. It allowed me to actually take what I learned from you and begin to practice it in relationship with my wife."

I've discovered I am a sexual being and gained the courage and confidence to express all of myself

Somatica has been hugely transformational for me both personally and professionally.Before becoming a practitioner, I was a client who experienced very low desire and believed I was not a sexual being. I feel sadness as I remember the false beliefs I thought were true. So not true! I've discovered I am a sexual being and gained the courage and confidence to express all of myself. I also learned to be vulnerable in my relationships. Because of my own personal transformation, I decided Somatica was the work that I wanted to do in the world and I love what I do! My ongoing training in the method continues to increase my skills as a practitioner and expand my understanding of myself as a sexual being.

Dalia, Somatica Core Training, 2013

The healing is profound and touches all parts of one's life

Celeste & Danielle have created a revolutionary approach to transformation. Because it dives deeply into the vulnerable and guarded realms of sexuality, the healing is profound and touches all parts of one's life. The process of being in a relationship with a practitioner while finding one's own individual humanity allows more self-love and acceptance. Leading an individual into embracing and loving the human they are, living in a world where desires can be embraced, mistakes become learning and life is a continual journey of curious exploration.

Since we worked with you, my wife is an orgasm machine. I can barely keep up with her!”

Client, South Bay

Thanks so much for putting me in touch with Keeley. We just wrapped up our intensive yesterday, and it was one of the most deeply nourishing experiences I've ever had. She's a wonderful, wonderful person and a skilled therapist, and the Somatica technique enabled a level of emotional exploration I've never reached before in years of talk therapy. You and Danielle are doing great, important work, and you're clearly superb teachers.

Client

Just wanted to follow up and let you know how much those sessions have helped me both mentally and physically. Since I've been back I have put them into practice in my relationship and it has been "mind blowing." (Her words not mine.) I feel myself being a lot more attentive to my desires and needs and vocalizing them - and doing that has been received really well and heightened pleasure for both of us. I know part of it is being in a healthier relationship but I also know that the insight you gave me and the corresponding confidence I now feel has changed my life.  I feel so much more at peace and am allowing my inner "freak" to come out a little more each day, LOL!

Client, Washington, DC

You are very, very good at what you do - not just the sexual training part but your broader understanding of human need and your capacity for empathy and acceptance. I feel very lucky to have met you.

I am doing well and just wanted to give you a small update. I just started seeing this man, who so far seems pretty amazing. Most importantly, I wanted to share with you some details 🙂

Before our first date, I was a bundle of nerves. Before he arrived, I went into my room where I have a full length mirror. I danced with myself, sensually, as we did in our first session together, to get reconnected to my sexuality again. I cherished every aspect of my body and knew it could drive him wild. I did this again before our second date. It really makes a difference. I have used the breathing techniques that we went through and when it came to being intimate, I was scared and excited all at once. I chose not to have intercourse with him that night but I did enjoy everything he was doing and maybe more importantly for me, was that I felt like a sex kitten when I began to explore him. I have never had that much confidence when I was with a man! I let my hair fall over him, I used my breasts to caress him and I teased him till he couldn't take it anymore! I felt so in control and sexy and beautiful and I have you to thank for that.

I treasure our sessions together as they really helped me grow out of a space I was ready to leave and into my new space. Anyway, thought you might enjoy the update...stay tuned for more fun. Loads more practice needed but a VERY successful first attempt after years of nothing.

All my gratitude to you my beautiful sister!

"Through my work with Dimitry over several months I experienced a profound shift in my sexual experience. I experienced three significant transformations: from feeling unattractive to embodying a deep knowledge of my own sexiness, from feeling deficient and inadequate to knowing I am beautiful safe wanted and appreciated, and from being frustrated and single to living with my life partner. Dimitry's presence, sensitivity and courage made our sessions safe and truly transformative."

"After having spent months and years in talk therapy, both individual and group (which I gave up on years ago), I was a little skeptical that my work with you would bear much fruit, especially in the short run. But now, I begin to appreciate the powerful forces you have learned how to tap into, and what a direct path they can open into healing. My experience the other day left me tingling with excitement, and feeling an unfamiliar sense of hope and optimism. I had thought that I had pretty much banished the feeling of shame that was instilled in me growing up, but now I see that I had merely bandaged it up with a tight dressing, along with a bunch of good things that shame had attached itself to. Pretty amazing. And I feel that I am just getting started with this process, and with what you can help me discover."

I think there are a lot of elements to self-discovery including self knowledge, timing, desire, effort and openness to change - but a lot of it has to do with the skill, intelligence and warmth of the coach. Much of what I am experiencing in our sessions I already knew on a cognitive level but what makes it a revelation is to really experience it.”

“Let me tell you just a bit about my partner and me right now There's been an immense shift from him since our time with you. He is loving me by going with my rhythms and I'm in heaven. Both in bed and out of bed, he's gotten much more deeply grounded in himself and simply dropped the grabbing behavior/attitude. He's employing space and subtlety with a great deal of power and sensitivity! I'm happy inside and out. And his penetration to my g-spot continues to be ever more intense, fantastic, expansive. I had no idea such lusciousness could be the normal flow between a man and a woman. I'm utterly falling in love with him. And, of course, he is joyous and fully magnetized to me. It feels great. Oh, you have brought much, much blessing into our lives!”

“Your workshops and coaching transformed our marriage. 10 months ago we were on the verge of divorce. One of our core struggles was power and control in our sexual relationship. I had fears about being overpowered which caused me to take control, which in turn made him feel powerless and unable to get his needs met. I also had needs that I was not communicating, which left me feeling dissatisfied. Needless to say we had sex less and less, and when we did it typically ended badly. This caused my husband to spend time masturbating to porn on the internet, which left me feeling rejected and abandoned (and angry). A friend told us about your workshops, and we decided to enter Celeste and Danielle’s Sexuality Bootcamp as we fondly called it. We were determined to break through this pattern, regardless of the outcome of our relationship.

After my husband took Become an Extraordinary Lover™, levels 1 and 2, he said he learned more about what women want in 2 days than he had his entire life. He is almost 40. At first I expected him to practice his newly learned techniques on me, but then he explained his main takeaway was to help me express and better understand what MY needs were so that he could satisfy them! (You women truly are goddesses!) Thanks to this mind-set and the hands-on techniques he learned, we are achieving better and more powerful orgasms together and I feel heard and appreciated in a way I never had before.

The next breakthrough was when we attended the Tie Me Up + Spank Me workshop with 4 other couples. At first I was terrified. This was exactly the place I was stuck in our relationship, and I was worried I would have to do things that were uncomfortable while we explored our fantasies in front of strangers! In fact, it was quite liberating to share our fears and stories with others, as well as practice simple and fun techniques for telling each other our fantasies and learning how to act them out. I discovered my husband did not harbor scary dominating fantasies which I had feared, and he in turn, discovered a more sexually adventurous and open me than he ever imagined. This combined with me attending Embracing your Inner Sex Goddess allowed me to feel more comfortable in my body and expressing my needs. I found the role plays particularly helpful in learning to do this.

I am happy to say that our Sexuality Boot camp has had a huge impact on our relationship. We have more sex, it is much more pleasurable and now when the struggle for control rears its ugly head we work past it. I am much more open to pleasing my husband and meeting his needs and he mine. And we’re still together! I know several of my friends who have experienced your work have had similar results. I will be forever indebted to you for the tremendous love, care and commitment you put into the work you do in helping couples and individuals embrace their sexuality in a healthy, open way.”

“Before I came to see you, I was very unhappy with my relationship with my wife of over 30 years. I was unhappy with her sexual responsiveness and felt constantly criticized by her. I would collapse with the tone of her voice or even an expression could send me into a tailspin. My wife was no happier and had suggested separation.

All our 30 plus years of married life I tried to be the "good husband" by being the "nice guy." I tried so very hard to please her thinking that my tactic of trying to make everything ok would work. Needless to say, I failed most of the time. When she was unhappy or angry with me I would shut down, pout or disappear for a few days until she came and tried to patch things up with some make-up sex.

The results have been nothing short of remarkable. I have learned that what my wife needed in order to be a woman was for me to be a man. Once I started changing how I was with my wife, she challenged me to my core. I had no idea of how deeply I could be cut and still stand there and stay engaged with her while she pushed me to find out if I was really going to be a man she could count on and trust. She needed to know that she could be all sides of herself, the good, bad and ugly to see if I really cared about her and not just "the goodies."

I stayed with her for three weeks of the most intense emotional roller coaster I have ever been on. The ugly turned awesome and back again. After three weeks of receiving her on all levels, from all parts of herself, she collapsed in my arms, totally in love with me. Since then we have been like teenagers in love. I didn't realize how many times I could still have sex in a single day.

I regret all the years that I could have been a man for her and given her the pleasure of being a woman. But, no matter. What is important are the wonderful changes that I have experience in my work with you – I feel strong and centered in myself and my relationship with my wife just keeps getting better.”

We invariably comment to each other after we leave you how perceptive you are, how well you know us, how well you "get" us, how good you are at gently but firmly helping us to open up, push our boundaries a bit, try new things.

“Since Level 1 I've been feeling powerful changes in my sense of being. A greater fullness, expansiveness, releasing and healing - and I know there's more to be done. There's several practices I've been doing to create more growth and change, and it's all integral, but the work with you is so powerful because it's so full-on action and experience, generating such intense energy – my heart's pounding as I think about it. It’s nothing short of transformational. I've been passionately desiring to aconnect with this for some time, and now that's it's happening, I feel like my life is really coming to a new level: one that I've been dreaming of, intuiting, and feeling the deep, purposeful drive towards. It's a greater awakening, and isn't it incredible? I know you've both experienced this: how when you step into that new place of being and look back at your former self and realize how relatively asleep (or a lesser version of your fuller self) you had been, doing your best to allow and not judge of course, because it's all unfolding in divine perfection. I admit I have thought how great it would have been if it had happened earlier, but who I am now and the experiences I've had leading up to this only benefit, deepen, and enrich my experience of it now and those to come. And it's so much fun! 🙂 Fun and scary and adventurous and high voltage; a diving-into-the-new kind of fear or scariness – I love courageous acts like that: boldly stepping out of one's comfort zone and beyond limitations. I feel like I'm starting to ramble. It's not that I've never experienced something enlightening before (and why do I feel the need to be qualifying this anyway?), but this is so embodied. "Erotic Embodiment" (to quote two wonderful women I've had the privilege of connecting with) describes it beautifully.

In erotically embodied bliss and gratitude.”

“I learned a great deal during the workshop, and I expected to learn some new things about women as well as some new skills to make me a better lover. Extraordinarily one of you noticed in the last manual stimulation exercise of the day, that at some stage I had disconnected part of myself from the experience and she asked if I had noticed. (I was quite astounded, but perhaps that level of awareness/presence is just another day in the office for you both!). I realize now that in the last exercise there was something about the experience that made me uncomfortable with what I was feeling and I put up a wall. I now see that within my relationships, I am holding something of myself back in many of them. As I become more intimate with someone (lover or friend) and connect with them, at a certain point there is a boundary where I stop being fully connected in certain situations, and I hold something back. What's interesting, is that this can only limit the potential intensity of connection, energy and experience with my partner (and is doing so). Now that I am aware of, and can recognize the change in, my internal presence/connection when it takes place, I will overcome it. An extraordinary experience, with extraordinary women, and an extraordinary realization has given me an extraordinarily wonderful start on this extraordinary journey to becoming an extraordinary lover.

The one thing I was most impressed with during the whole class was that each of them showed truly remarkable communication skills in giving feedback to various men with a wide range of skill levels in ways that gave guidance for improvement and yet could always be received as positive and encouraging rather than critical. I'm very impressed that they were both able to do that so well, as it seems to me to be such a rare and tricky skill. Just having women willing and able to be so fully comfortable in a classroom setting is unusual enough, but adding in the personal, warmly delivered feedback made it a uniquely valuable learning opportunity. You were both clear, present, and warm. I was impressed with a sense that you both genuinely care about helping people have more fulfilling lives. I loved how you were gentle and respectful with shyer guys and yet ready to meet the more confident ones with full presence. You focused on the skills needed to actually have a fulfilling sex life with a woman. Thank you for doing this work!”

“You are both in my thoughts and heart every day.... I processed all three of the workshops on my drive home the next day. On August 14 I had a moment of clarity where I saw exactly what my relationship with women and myself had always been up until that point. In that moment I felt something rise up inside of me. It is hard to describe the feeling. But at that moment I felt a shift inside. I made a conscious decision to put all of my stories about women aside. It was a powerful moment. And I have gone forward from there.

I cannot describe in few words the healing that has taken place since that moment. I will say this - I recognize August 14, 2007 as one of the 5 most important days of my life, along with my birthday, etc. My time with you beautiful angels was instrumental in getting me to that moment, so you will always live rent free in my heart.”

"The recurring thought since the men's level 1 seminar I attended is, 'Toto, we are DEFINITELY not in Kansas, anymore!'. I could not have asked for more. My journey is to free my thinking and actions from old scripts to the realm of what is possible. Your seminar was a wonderful step along the path. I'm glad I committed to the trip. I'm glad the airlines would not let me leave before the seminar due to hurricane damage concerns and I'm glad you folks swing for the fences. Thank you for an excellent instructive experience."

“Just a quick note to say thank you for the more aware, more caring and tender husband I received at home last night. He was very excited about his experience and shared some of what he learned, it was great. I told him it felt like he had done a personal development workshop in which he expanded his consciousness, not just learned techniques. I look forward to doing the same so we can create a stronger relationship together. Thank you thank you!”

"The "control regimen" that we have worked on was so successful that she came twice before I even did. It was a solid 40 minutes of non-stop fucking. She had trouble falling asleep afterwards because her body was having pleasure after-shocks for an hour after we finished. She couldn't stop talking about how great it was."

“Before my first session with you, I was an average lover with not much staying power. 90% of my sexual energy and organism was felt only in my groin. In 5 short sessions, you have taught me first how to be a lover of my own body so that I could experience an orgasm from my fingers to my toes. Wow what a feeling. Secondly you have taught me how to have staaaaayyying power throughout my love making experience. Third, I have learned the art of making love to my lover.... Slowly, methodically, with the deepest of breath..... we are both appreciative. Where were you 10 years ago. My Sex life and Sensual life will never be the same.”

“My experience with your coaching has made a profound difference in my life. I have allowed myself to explore and to awaken parts of my erotic self that had been repressed or blocked for most of my life. I have been able to really acknowledge and celebrate my sexuality and to face up to my inhibitions and feelings of guilt about my sexual desires and arousals. For the first time I felt my sexuality was fully accepted, even the parts that I had thought of as 'kinky' and 'nasty'. My opening has had very positive implications for my sex life. I have gained skills in connecting with women and have much greater control over my ejaculation and sexual responsiveness.”

Client
Montpelier, VT

"I have to report that our work on my sexuality has changed how I am doing business. This afternoon, I was in a meeting with my partner and our CTO who was anxious and negative, which stopped him from using his creativity to solve some big technical problems. In your training, our work on staying present and open without defensiveness paid off.

I was able to graciously tell him how I wanted to improve our process and what I wanted from him. As he become defensive I was able to notice his body posture and voice without anxiety myself! I was able to stay with him, notice what was going on without internalizing the stress. The beauty of staying present without anxiety is that it allowed for a new level of creativity on my part!

My partner later commented that my intervention felt very CEOish."

“After our intensive, I have been trying to check-in with myself and see how I feel this week. I think I notice a little more swagger in my step … not like cocky, just feeling a little more complete.
Feeling a little more present…
… a little more like an adult
… a little less reserved
… a little more embodied
… more connected
… more at peace
… more seductive
… more playful
… more likable
… more powerful
… more capable
………………need I go on?

In the end, you’re right... the point of our coaching on Sunday was not to make it easier to get laid. Experiencing this kind of freedom is much better than getting laid. Soon those qualities will be the things that not only “get me laid”, but also attract and keep passionately satisfied business clients, and attract more rich and fulfilling friendships of all kinds, and lead to fulfillment like I haven’t experienced before. That’s what it’s all about, right?

The Intensive, and the other work and workshops we’ve done, have been a big component of a new presence and enlightenment for me. I wanted to drop you a line to tell you how blessed I feel to have found you and grow so much with your guidance. You have good reason to be so damn proud ($$) of your work. Thank you for pursuing your bliss and sharing your genius and your powerful gifts with me.

In Passion!"

“Thank you so much for today's productive, enlightening, exciting and empowering session! I get more for myself because of your willingness to personally engage with me, to allow your "self" be apart of the role-playing we did.

"When I came to see you, you were so gentle and supportive. I never once felt judged or diminished in your presence. In fact, you were like a guiding light that opened me up and allowed me to be filled with the feminine compassion that I was so very hungry for.

What I learned from you in time was to feel more self satisfied and less hungry. I learned the ways I behaved to keep myself from being nourished and happy and began to change long-standing patterns.
What I remember most were the incredible conversations that reframed the way I looked at male/female relationships. The fact that you were willing to put yourself on the line, do intense role-playing and experiential work and stay fully present and engaged no matter how angry or hurt I felt, was what made all of the difference for me. It allowed me to actually take what I learned from you and begin to practice it in relationship with my wife."

I've discovered I am a sexual being and gained the courage and confidence to express all of myself

Somatica has been hugely transformational for me both personally and professionally.Before becoming a practitioner, I was a client who experienced very low desire and believed I was not a sexual being. I feel sadness as I remember the false beliefs I thought were true. So not true! I've discovered I am a sexual being and gained the courage and confidence to express all of myself. I also learned to be vulnerable in my relationships. Because of my own personal transformation, I decided Somatica was the work that I wanted to do in the world and I love what I do! My ongoing training in the method continues to increase my skills as a practitioner and expand my understanding of myself as a sexual being.

The healing is profound and touches all parts of one's life

Celeste & Danielle have created a revolutionary approach to transformation. Because it dives deeply into the vulnerable and guarded realms of sexuality, the healing is profound and touches all parts of one's life. The process of being in a relationship with a practitioner while finding one's own individual humanity allows more self-love and acceptance. Leading an individual into embracing and loving the human they are, living in a world where desires can be embraced, mistakes become learning and life is a continual journey of curious exploration.

Since we worked with you, my wife is an orgasm machine. I can barely keep up with her!”

Client, South Bay

Thanks so much for putting me in touch with Keeley. We just wrapped up our intensive yesterday, and it was one of the most deeply nourishing experiences I've ever had. She's a wonderful, wonderful person and a skilled therapist, and the Somatica technique enabled a level of emotional exploration I've never reached before in years of talk therapy. You and Danielle are doing great, important work, and you're clearly superb teachers.

Client

Just wanted to follow up and let you know how much those sessions have helped me both mentally and physically. Since I've been back I have put them into practice in my relationship and it has been "mind blowing." (Her words not mine.) I feel myself being a lot more attentive to my desires and needs and vocalizing them - and doing that has been received really well and heightened pleasure for both of us. I know part of it is being in a healthier relationship but I also know that the insight you gave me and the corresponding confidence I now feel has changed my life.  I feel so much more at peace and am allowing my inner "freak" to come out a little more each day, LOL!

Client, Washington, DC

You are very, very good at what you do - not just the sexual training part but your broader understanding of human need and your capacity for empathy and acceptance. I feel very lucky to have met you.

After taking this class I have learned not only about how to help my clients, I also learned so much about myself in relationships.

Tantra and Sexological Bodwork provided me with embodiment skills and understanding the importance of breath, sound and movement.

I am doing well and just wanted to give you a small update. I just started seeing this man, who so far seems pretty amazing. Most importantly, I wanted to share with you some details 🙂

Before our first date, I was a bundle of nerves. Before he arrived, I went into my room where I have a full length mirror. I danced with myself, sensually, as we did in our first session together, to get reconnected to my sexuality again. I cherished every aspect of my body and knew it could drive him wild. I did this again before our second date. It really makes a difference. I have used the breathing techniques that we went through and when it came to being intimate, I was scared and excited all at once. I chose not to have intercourse with him that night but I did enjoy everything he was doing and maybe more importantly for me, was that I felt like a sex kitten when I began to explore him. I have never had that much confidence when I was with a man! I let my hair fall over him, I used my breasts to caress him and I teased him till he couldn't take it anymore! I felt so in control and sexy and beautiful and I have you to thank for that.

I treasure our sessions together as they really helped me grow out of a space I was ready to leave and into my new space. Anyway, thought you might enjoy the update...stay tuned for more fun. Loads more practice needed but a VERY successful first attempt after years of nothing.

All my gratitude to you my beautiful sister!

I experienced three significant transformations: from feeling unattractive to embodying a deep knowledge of my own sexiness, from feeling deficient and inadequate to knowing I am beautiful safe wanted and appreciated, and from being frustrated and single to living with my life partner. Dimitry's presence, sensitivity and courage made our sessions safe and truly transformative."

"After having spent months and years in talk therapy, both individual and group (which I gave up on years ago), I was a little skeptical that my work with you would bear much fruit, especially in the short run. But now, I begin to appreciate the powerful forces you have learned how to tap into, and what a direct path they can open into healing. My experience the other day left me tingling with excitement, and feeling an unfamiliar sense of hope and optimism. I had thought that I had pretty much banished the feeling of shame that was instilled in me growing up, but now I see that I had merely bandaged it up with a tight dressing, along with a bunch of good things that shame had attached itself to. Pretty amazing. And I feel that I am just getting started with this process, and with what you can help me discover."

I think there are a lot of elements to self-discovery including self knowledge, timing, desire, effort and openness to change - but a lot of it has to do with the skill, intelligence and warmth of the coach. Much of what I am experiencing in our sessions I already knew on a cognitive level but what makes it a revelation is to really experience it.”

“Let me tell you just a bit about my partner and me right now There's been an immense shift from him since our time with you. He is loving me by going with my rhythms and I'm in heaven. Both in bed and out of bed, he's gotten much more deeply grounded in himself and simply dropped the grabbing behavior/attitude. He's employing space and subtlety with a great deal of power and sensitivity! I'm happy inside and out. And his penetration to my g-spot continues to be ever more intense, fantastic, expansive. I had no idea such lusciousness could be the normal flow between a man and a woman. I'm utterly falling in love with him. And, of course, he is joyous and fully magnetized to me. It feels great. Oh, you have brought much, much blessing into our lives!”

“Your workshops and coaching transformed our marriage. 10 months ago we were on the verge of divorce. One of our core struggles was power and control in our sexual relationship. I had fears about being overpowered which caused me to take control, which in turn made him feel powerless and unable to get his needs met. I also had needs that I was not communicating, which left me feeling dissatisfied. Needless to say we had sex less and less, and when we did it typically ended badly. This caused my husband to spend time masturbating to porn on the internet, which left me feeling rejected and abandoned (and angry). A friend told us about your workshops, and we decided to enter Celeste and Danielle’s Sexuality Bootcamp as we fondly called it. We were determined to break through this pattern, regardless of the outcome of our relationship.

After my husband took Become an Extraordinary Lover™, levels 1 and 2, he said he learned more about what women want in 2 days than he had his entire life. He is almost 40. At first I expected him to practice his newly learned techniques on me, but then he explained his main takeaway was to help me express and better understand what MY needs were so that he could satisfy them! (You women truly are goddesses!) Thanks to this mind-set and the hands-on techniques he learned, we are achieving better and more powerful orgasms together and I feel heard and appreciated in a way I never had before.

The next breakthrough was when we attended the Tie Me Up + Spank Me workshop with 4 other couples. At first I was terrified. This was exactly the place I was stuck in our relationship, and I was worried I would have to do things that were uncomfortable while we explored our fantasies in front of strangers! In fact, it was quite liberating to share our fears and stories with others, as well as practice simple and fun techniques for telling each other our fantasies and learning how to act them out. I discovered my husband did not harbor scary dominating fantasies which I had feared, and he in turn, discovered a more sexually adventurous and open me than he ever imagined. This combined with me attending Embracing your Inner Sex Goddess allowed me to feel more comfortable in my body and expressing my needs. I found the role plays particularly helpful in learning to do this.

I am happy to say that our Sexuality Boot camp has had a huge impact on our relationship. We have more sex, it is much more pleasurable and now when the struggle for control rears its ugly head we work past it. I am much more open to pleasing my husband and meeting his needs and he mine. And we’re still together! I know several of my friends who have experienced your work have had similar results. I will be forever indebted to you for the tremendous love, care and commitment you put into the work you do in helping couples and individuals embrace their sexuality in a healthy, open way.”

Client

“Before I came to see you, I was very unhappy with my relationship with my wife of over 30 years. I was unhappy with her sexual responsiveness and felt constantly criticized by her. I would collapse with the tone of her voice or even an expression could send me into a tailspin. My wife was no happier and had suggested separation.

All our 30 plus years of married life I tried to be the "good husband" by being the "nice guy." I tried so very hard to please her thinking that my tactic of trying to make everything ok would work. Needless to say, I failed most of the time. When she was unhappy or angry with me I would shut down, pout or disappear for a few days until she came and tried to patch things up with some make-up sex.

The results have been nothing short of remarkable. I have learned that what my wife needed in order to be a woman was for me to be a man. Once I started changing how I was with my wife, she challenged me to my core. I had no idea of how deeply I could be cut and still stand there and stay engaged with her while she pushed me to find out if I was really going to be a man she could count on and trust. She needed to know that she could be all sides of herself, the good, bad and ugly to see if I really cared about her and not just "the goodies."

I stayed with her for three weeks of the most intense emotional roller coaster I have ever been on. The ugly turned awesome and back again. After three weeks of receiving her on all levels, from all parts of herself, she collapsed in my arms, totally in love with me. Since then we have been like teenagers in love. I didn't realize how many times I could still have sex in a single day.

I regret all the years that I could have been a man for her and given her the pleasure of being a woman. But, no matter. What is important are the wonderful changes that I have experience in my work with you – I feel strong and centered in myself and my relationship with my wife just keeps getting better.”

This morning my wife and I had sex for the first time in almost 4 years, I think. A bit awkward, but very sweet. I would like to tell you more about it when I see you next, which I am already impatient to do."

"I want you to know how much change I feel that my wife and I are experiencing as a result of our sessions with you. I am not thinking only, or even primarily, about the work we are doing that relates directly to our lovemaking. I feel that we having an increased intimacy, an increased clarity, an increased understanding that flows from the time we are spending with you. We invariably comment to each other after we leave you how perceptive you are, how well you know us, how well you "get" us, how good you are at gently but firmly helping us to open up, push our boundaries a bit, try new things. And it is working.
Thank you so much for everything you are giving to us and sharing with us.
With love, respect and admiration.”

This has always been an issue for us, I feel I am talking and he does not want to connect, but I realized I talk about the to do list (what he is or is not getting done back home), he feels criticized, wants to get off the phone, I feel rejected, you get the picture!

“Since Level 1 I've been feeling powerful changes in my sense of being. A greater fullness, expansiveness, releasing and healing - and I know there's more to be done. There's several practices I've been doing to create more growth and change, and it's all integral, but the work with you is so powerful because it's so full-on action and experience, generating such intense energy – my heart's pounding as I think about it. It’s nothing short of transformational. I've been passionately desiring to aconnect with this for some time, and now that's it's happening, I feel like my life is really coming to a new level: one that I've been dreaming of, intuiting, and feeling the deep, purposeful drive towards. It's a greater awakening, and isn't it incredible? I know you've both experienced this: how when you step into that new place of being and look back at your former self and realize how relatively asleep (or a lesser version of your fuller self) you had been, doing your best to allow and not judge of course, because it's all unfolding in divine perfection. I admit I have thought how great it would have been if it had happened earlier, but who I am now and the experiences I've had leading up to this only benefit, deepen, and enrich my experience of it now and those to come. And it's so much fun! 🙂 Fun and scary and adventurous and high voltage; a diving-into-the-new kind of fear or scariness – I love courageous acts like that: boldly stepping out of one's comfort zone and beyond limitations. I feel like I'm starting to ramble. It's not that I've never experienced something enlightening before (and why do I feel the need to be qualifying this anyway?), but this is so embodied. "Erotic Embodiment" (to quote two wonderful women I've had the privilege of connecting with) describes it beautifully.

In erotically embodied bliss and gratitude.”

“I learned a great deal during the workshop, and I expected to learn some new things about women as well as some new skills to make me a better lover. Extraordinarily one of you noticed in the last manual stimulation exercise of the day, that at some stage I had disconnected part of myself from the experience and she asked if I had noticed. (I was quite astounded, but perhaps that level of awareness/presence is just another day in the office for you both!). I realize now that in the last exercise there was something about the experience that made me uncomfortable with what I was feeling and I put up a wall. I now see that within my relationships, I am holding something of myself back in many of them. As I become more intimate with someone (lover or friend) and connect with them, at a certain point there is a boundary where I stop being fully connected in certain situations, and I hold something back. What's interesting, is that this can only limit the potential intensity of connection, energy and experience with my partner (and is doing so). Now that I am aware of, and can recognize the change in, my internal presence/connection when it takes place, I will overcome it. An extraordinary experience, with extraordinary women, and an extraordinary realization has given me an extraordinarily wonderful start on this extraordinary journey to becoming an extraordinary lover.

“Thank you for an incredible day and experience. What a wonderful gift you are delivering to the world. The models were extraordinary. The one thing I was most impressed with during the whole class was that each of them showed truly remarkable communication skills in giving feedback to various men with a wide range of skill levels in ways that gave guidance for improvement and yet could always be received as positive and encouraging rather than critical. I'm very impressed that they were both able to do that so well, as it seems to me to be such a rare and tricky skill. Just having women willing and able to be so fully comfortable in a classroom setting is unusual enough, but adding in the personal, warmly delivered feedback made it a uniquely valuable learning opportunity. You were both clear, present, and warm. I was impressed with a sense that you both genuinely care about helping people have more fulfilling lives. I loved how you were gentle and respectful with shyer guys and yet ready to meet the more confident ones with full presence. You focused on the skills needed to actually have a fulfilling sex life with a woman. Thank you for doing this work!”

“You are both in my thoughts and heart every day.... I processed all three of the workshops on my drive home the next day. On August 14 I had a moment of clarity where I saw exactly what my relationship with women and myself had always been up until that point. In that moment I felt something rise up inside of me. It is hard to describe the feeling. But at that moment I felt a shift inside. I made a conscious decision to put all of my stories about women aside. It was a powerful moment. And I have gone forward from there.

I cannot describe in few words the healing that has taken place since that moment. I will say this - I recognize August 14, 2007 as one of the 5 most important days of my life, along with my birthday, etc. My time with you beautiful angels was instrumental in getting me to that moment, so you will always live rent free in my heart.”

In 5 short sessions, you have taught me first how to be a lover of my own body so that I could experience an orgasm from my fingers to my toes. Wow what a feeling. Secondly you have taught me how to have staaaaayyying power throughout my love making experience. Third, I have learned the art of making love to my lover.... Slowly, methodically, with the deepest of breath..... we are both appreciative. Where were you 10 years ago. My Sex life and Sensual life will never be the same.”

I have allowed myself to explore and to awaken parts of my erotic self that had been repressed or blocked for most of my life. I have been able to really acknowledge and celebrate my sexuality and to face up to my inhibitions and feelings of guilt about my sexual desires and arousals. For the first time I felt my sexuality was fully accepted, even the parts that I had thought of as 'kinky' and 'nasty'. My opening has had very positive implications for my sex life. I have gained skills in connecting with women and have much greater control over my ejaculation and sexual responsiveness.”

"I have to report that our work on my sexuality has changed how I am doing business. This afternoon, I was in a meeting with my partner and our CTO who was anxious and negative, which stopped him from using his creativity to solve some big technical problems. In your training, our work on staying present and open without defensiveness paid off.

I was able to graciously tell him how I wanted to improve our process and what I wanted from him. As he become defensive I was able to notice his body posture and voice without anxiety myself! I was able to stay with him, notice what was going on without internalizing the stress. The beauty of staying present without anxiety is that it allowed for a new level of creativity on my part!

My partner later commented that my intervention felt very CEOish."

Feeling a little more present…
… a little more like an adult
… a little less reserved
… a little more embodied
… more connected
… more at peace
… more seductive
… more playful
… more likable
… more powerful
… more capable
………………need I go on?

In the end, you’re right... the point of our coaching on Sunday was not to make it easier to get laid. Experiencing this kind of freedom is much better than getting laid. Soon those qualities will be the things that not only “get me laid”, but also attract and keep passionately satisfied business clients, and attract more rich and fulfilling friendships of all kinds, and lead to fulfillment like I haven’t experienced before. That’s what it’s all about, right?

The Intensive, and the other work and workshops we’ve done, have been a big component of a new presence and enlightenment for me. I wanted to drop you a line to tell you how blessed I feel to have found you and grow so much with your guidance. You have good reason to be so damn proud ($$) of your work. Thank you for pursuing your bliss and sharing your genius and your powerful gifts with me.

"When I came to see you, you were so gentle and supportive. I never once felt judged or diminished in your presence. In fact, you were like a guiding light that opened me up and allowed me to be filled with the feminine compassion that I was so very hungry for.

What I learned from you in time was to feel more self satisfied and less hungry. I learned the ways I behaved to keep myself from being nourished and happy and began to change long-standing patterns.
What I remember most were the incredible conversations that reframed the way I looked at male/female relationships. The fact that you were willing to put yourself on the line, do intense role-playing and experiential work and stay fully present and engaged no matter how angry or hurt I felt, was what made all of the difference for me. It allowed me to actually take what I learned from you and begin to practice it in relationship with my wife."
