Beauty of Woman Monthly Circle
This event was inspired by Alison Petrie – with the intention of creating an experiential, feeling, relaxed space for women.
Our focus is on nurturing, nourishing and connecting with feminine essence. It is not a teaching space and does not focus on tantra or sacred sexuality. It includes dancing, silent and active meditation, touch, partner exchanges, sharing and massage – all to support you in feeling the beauty of being a woman.
A monthly circle allows us to create a space for bonding and deep sharing where women feel supported to fully be themselves, giving and receiving touch and loving support. This level of connection allows a woman to unwind fully, to relax the nervous system and fill herself up from the inside.
The space you hold is so safe and soft, like a warm womb unconditionally loving and allowing, it's a very precious gift. Thank you.
Martina, it's hard to put into words the overwhelming feelings of incredible love and unconditional giving associated with this magic experience I have every time I am in the beautiful nurturing space you create for us all to "fall in love" with each other and be every one of those things!! Thank you from every beautiful part of me to every beautiful part of you!!!
Last night I attended the Beauty of Women event run superbly by Alison. I'd had a huge day at work and was tempted to bail out but am so glad I didn't. It was a tender, slowly-evolving evening where time just slowed down. When it ended I was surprised I'd been there 3 hours and delighted at how refreshed I felt. It was like I'd walked through cool rain on a steaming hot day. We talked, we danced, we meditated and we supported ourselves and each other. I love that this monthly event is building a circle for women to connect and feel committed to attending each month and encourage any of your clients and contacts to come along. Blessings and thanks.
Thanks for the very lovely evening last night....the atmosphere of trust, openness and intimacy you create is very very beautiful.
Sacred Sexuality Introduction
This is the first event Martina Hughes created to support women in understanding the benefits of tantra and why they might want to explore it.
In this 3.5 hour workshop we provide 4 keys to open sexual energy alone or with a partner; explore the interplay of masculine and feminine dynamics, introduce energetic orgasm and lead participants through simple exercises for opening sexual energy.
This is highly recommended for any woman who wants to begin having a new experience of her sexuality. When we embrace the experience that both sex and love live inside our bodies, then a whole new level of connection and feeling is possible as individuals and within relationship.
I got back in touch with feelings and emotions I haven’t experienced for quite a while. Giving myself permission to feel like a goddess and be blessed with my sexuality. Allowing me some more tools to help trust again and know feeling sexy is ok. Great exercises to share with my husband.
Thank you again for the Sacred Sexuality experience. It was beautiful to feel so in tune with my body and share that with other women...the energy in the room was incredible. It has been 1 week since the Sacred Sexuality workshop...& I have felt more in tune with my body and settled in my mind than ever before. Before the workshop I felt I feared sex, had lost all desire for making love and was not feeling positive about myself in general...but after learning how to reconnect with myself and understand my body better, the idea of sex is not daunting at all...I'm actually excited! After sharing & spending time with the beautiful women in the group I also feel a strong desire to connect on a deeper level with my female friends which is so nourishing. Thankyou for empowering me and reminding me how blissful and divine it is to be a woman!
Thank you so much for the experience of such an amazing workshop. I am so grateful to have been introduced to Tantra. Not only did my sex life take a step up dramatically overnight but I have new insight into the woman I really am.
I just wanted to write and thank you with all my heart for offering not just a workshop full of inspiration but one with such open heartedness, comfort, care and that gentle whisper of self empowerment. Whilst in the begining hesitancy played a big part of even attending, surrendering to the flow of life itself and taking that step forward has proven to be such a blessing. Lots has unfolded since and I'm sure will continue to do so, and now there is a certain air of excitement that stirs within. Thank you for your help in opening my eyes once more to the true beauty of this world in which we share.
Thank you for facilitating a fabulous workshop on Saturday afternoon, Sacred Sexuality for Women, it was truly an amazing experience and a wonderful birthday present. The sacred space that was created was magical and an eternal bonding with all the women globally, the divine feminine was awakened in us all and it was beautiful.... I expanded in consciousness and felt a deep healing and connection within my self and universally. I would like to highly recommend this course to you all and especially as it makes a great birthday present for your friends. You are a gifted and authentic facilitator and we thank you for your energy and efforts in providing a great opportunity for us to experience the beauty of Tantra. Existence seems to have become even more colourful after Saturday's participation. Thank you.
Thank you for the workshop, saying thank you seems inadequate for the gift of awakening which has occurred within me. It truly was a night of reconnection to myself, my femininity and my sexuality - all of which I have been disconnected from for such a large part of my life. For the first time I could feel the energy within all of me at once and its ebb and flow, where usually I only feel energy circulating around my heart centre or solar plexus. I discovered what it felt to be whole again from within.
For various reasons, sex and love making have not been a part of my life but after tonight I feel ready to explore this aspect which I have denied myself for so long, and that in itself is a major miracle! So once again, thank you Martina for such a profound workshop.
WOW!! The space that was created at Sacred Sexuality for Women last night and the wisdom shared by Martina took me to a place within myself that was raw and vulnerable but also authentic and exciting! Feeling into the openness and the aliveness of the energy in the room was healing, inspiring and transforming. Thank you Martina!
Thank you so much for your work, I find you really inspiring, and your work very revealing. I seemingly have some trauma around intimacy and I notice that doing the exercises you recommend has really got things moving. It feels a lot better than the stuck feeling I have had around intimacy for years.
Blossoming Woman Retreat
This retreat is for any woman who wants to experience herself as a Blossoming Woman – a woman who embraces herself as love, engages deeply with her sexual energy and lives an integrated life. A Blossoming Woman knows and feels herself as much more than the roles she plays in others’ lives … she lives and breathes from the inside out
Thank you so much. I am continuing to enjoy the fruits of the course and have been blossoming in many new and wondrous areas. I am currently in the process of creating a new business to further support myself. I thank you again for creating such a wonderful course.
I decided to head along to the Blossoming Woman retreat out of curiosity after experiencing Martina leading Sacred Sexuality for Women evening in Sydney. Wow! The Blossoming Woman retreat was the most powerful workshop I have participated in. Totally heart opening and connected me with the divine feminine in a way I have I have never experienced before. Martina holds the space for you to experience vulnerability and ecstasy. A powerful and loving and divine experience!
Martina has taken me on a beautiful journey through the Blossoming Woman retreat... I have a new sense of calm and freedom in my life. I feel empowered with the tools, the confidence and the commitment, to continue nuturing and loving myself.
I have overcome negative feelings about my body, discovered and reconnected with my sexual energy and feel a new life force emerging within me.
Blossoming Woman is an opportunity to experience profound transformation from deep inside.
Dear Martina, Don't know what you did over the Ladies weekend at Lilyvale but whatever it was I just wanted to say thankyou for spoiling my darling. I asked her when she got home for a score out of ten when she got home and all she could say was, "TEN TEN TEN TEN."
An opportunity came my way to explore an evening of Tantra and with lots of fear and curiosity I went along to a Sacred Sexuality for Women evening with Martina as host. During the evening Martina spoke of her upcoming women's retreat and I found myself booking my space, with absolutely no idea what to expect I just intuitively knew it was for me.
Firstly the setting at Amarant deep in the Yarra Valley was magical, surrounded by the bush with all the wildlife sounds to listen to away from the hectic life we live. Breath taking scenery and the gorgeous timber lodge with beautiful rooms was just perfect. We were graced to be nutritionally nourished by the beautiful Rachel during our time at retreat, such a treat to be served gorgeous food and not to have to worry about preparing or cooking.
Attention was paid to detail by Martina so that we did not have to concern ourselves with anything, she wanted us all to spend the retreat totally focused on ourselves, something as women we forget to do!
Everything was set up beautifully and this allowed us all to completely relax and go on our Tantra journey facilitated by Martina.
I am astounded by the profound effect the retreat and the beginnings of my Tantra journey has had on me. It was a life changing event for me where I opened the door to a reconnection with myself that had long ago left me.
Martina has an amazing ability to hold the space as you explore who you truly are as a woman, I loved being in her space and her wonderful energy inspired, uplifted and captivated me throughout my time at retreat. So much so, that I did not want to leave. The connection created at the retreat with the women I shared my time with has continued and we are all meeting regularly, supporting each other as we continue our individual journeys.
This journey continues for me as my partner now joins me, we will be going together to Martina’s couples retreat in November!
I would absolutely recommend going on the Blossoming Woman Retreat with Martina to any woman who wishes to explore her feminine and reconnect with self.
A truly wonderful experience.
Thank you Martina for the amazing work that you do.
I felt the six weeks was a time of coming home to womanhood, sinking deeply into myself, my knowing, and the Divine within. Martina holds such a nourishing, nurturing, comforting, inspiring, revealing and unfolding space. I was invited into a deep rest within, letting my own truth be seen and heard without the need for explanation or words of justification. During this time, I moved within, feeling grounded in every sense and essence, giving myself permission to live fully, freely and passionately as a woman.....opening my heart to love and be loved..... Thank you for the beautiful gifts you share, so open heartedly from within.
I came to explore Tantra after an opening I experienced with a man. I was eager to learn how to become a better partner and lover, to enrich the connection, to reach higher levels of intimacy through lovemaking. My first step was to attend Sacred Sexuality for Women facilitated by Martina. At the end of the session she told us about the Blossoming Woman retreat and there were a few spots left. I followed my gut and said ‘yes’ to the experience, with no idea what I was opening to. It felt scary and it felt very right at the same time.
What I experienced during the Blossoming Woman retreat was not what I was expecting: I experienced myself. I found my truth. I was looking for answers from the outside when it was all inside. By creating a space of trust, safety, fun and love, Martina helped to peel off the layers. In the middle of this circle of amazing women, there I was - bare, strong and vulnerable, with tears, laughter, screams, love, energies, passion, fun, music, compassion, it all came to me ... I have opened to my energies, a breakthrough to different sensations, to a different understanding of the world. Spirituality. Orgasmic flashes of warmth through my body. Feminine connection. Everyone has a unique experience, my opening is deep and profound. There is no turning back. I will keep walking on the path, I love what I found, the possibilities seem limitless. A beautiful phrase was given to me during the retreat “the mind knows restrictions, the body knows freedom”. I want freedom. The freedom to be just me; imperfect and flavourful.
Dear Martina I just needed to take a minute out to express my gratitude for the remarkably shifting effects of your delicious tantra for women workshops. I can feel the awakening of my feminine essence thru so many areas in my life. A sense of honesty has been pervading my life, freeing up so much stress and discomfort that has masked the constant suppression of what I am afraid to reveal. I send thanks and sincere gratitude for this opportunity to grow within myself and affect others around me in such a positive way. Look forward to seeing you soon.
A friend suggested I go on the Being Woman retreat after I shared my frustration at my uninspiring sex life. I didn't really understand how the retreat would help, but I was willing to give it a go. To my surprise and delight, the retreat helped me connect with my sexuality and femininity and has given me new ways to relate to myself and those around me. It's difficult to explain what happened to me - but it was amazing. I highly recommend it to anyone who feels like there might be something they're missing, but they can't quite put their finger on what.
