About

“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

“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.”

Method

“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.”

Men

“I believe I have successfully graduated. My wife and I went away over the weekend and I rocked her world. Finally! Success! She said she had waves of orgasm during intercourse that she had never experienced. She noted how engaged and present I was during our lovemaking. She can hardly wait to do it again. Thank you so much for all your help!”

Client
Richmond, CA

“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.”

Sex Coaching for Men

“I can’t believe no one ever gave me this information about what women want women before. I went home and practiced seduction with my partner, finally found her G-Spot, and we had more passionate sex than we’ve ever had. ”

Client

“My girlfriend now introduces me as the guy who helped her find her G-Spot.”

Erotic Intensives for Men

“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

“Thanks for teaching me that there is much more pleasure then ejaculation. Experiencing this mind-blowing ecstasy, this warmth and energy spreading in my body – I felt my body buzzing and exploding, I walked with this energy days afterward.”

Client
Santa Clara, CA

Ejaculation Control

“I can’t emphasize too much what a thrill it was to have prolonged intercourse AND to have my partner orgasm as a result of our coupling. When we engaged I lasted as long as I ever have with my wife and could have lasted longer.”

Client
Menlo Park, CA

“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.”

What Women Say on the Men’s Workshop

“I can’t believe that the workshop lasted only one day; my husband changed completely; his attitude, his touch and even the way he looks at me are different – thank you so much!”

Participant’s wife
Fremont, CA

“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!”

Sex: What’s in it for You

“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 feel like I’m walking on air right now. Like I took a big, cleansing breath and washed away years of blockages and shame around my sexuality. I remember what it is like to feel alive and sensual and I can’t wait to flirt with the world…”

Couples

Who knew there was so much that one could learn – and enjoy learning – about how to relate and create intimacy with your partner. There seem to be so few places in life to ask questions about this topic – we don’t do that well in our society – to find out more information, to find out what other people have already learned. But the workshop was the perfect environment. The content was engaging and helpful, we practiced together and with the teachers and coaches, and we were able to bring home some great ways of relating that has opened up an already great relationship into something even better. Danielle and Celeste were masterful in how they taught and coached and in sharing the wisdom they’ve learned over their years of helping others. I couldn’t recommend the workshop any more heartily to others!

Participant, Couples Retreat, 2019
San Francisco, CA

I took the couple’s workshop to improve my coaching skills and got to invite my partner to take it with me. It was such an amazing experience to be there with my partner learning professional skills that immediately transformed my personal relationship. Having Danielle demo a couple’s session with us helped us understand and reverse our negative relationship vortex. We learned to have empathy for each other when it arose in our relationship so that we could resolve it quickly and get back to the fun stuff! As always with Somatica, it also helped us deepen our sexual connection to each other.

Keep Your Relationship Alive

“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.”

“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!”
