TBD Summer 2022

Running Springs Ranch, Ukiah, California

waking up to sunshine reflecting off a golden meadow, with the silhouette of horses grazing freely…

feeling exquisitely connected with your own body, sensuality & pleasure as you walk across the land with a swing in your step…

 forging an intimate connection with a sensitive creature who calms your soul and empowers your primal wisdom…

During my twenty years of teaching women to experience sensual fulfillment, sacred sexual empowerment, pleasurable weight loss, and body confidence, I discovered that the fastest way to reach these goals is to think of your body as an animal. Like all animals in nature, your body is a living, breathing, feeling, decision-making, wise, intelligent creature, who already knows how to thrive on every level.

The problem lies not with your animal body.
The problem is you haven’t been listening to her! 

When you start to respect her, and truly listen to her messages, she will reveal the path to all you desire.
It’s that simple.

Once I became aware of this truth, I stopped condemning my body and started listening. I realized that the more I listened, and the more deeply I connected to Nature, the more in tune I became.

Natural Horsemanship, a philosophy and method that emphasizes creating rapport and connection with the horses, eschewing brutality and violence as a means to “discipline” the horses. The parallel with how I related with my own body, was obvious to me.

Relating with a horse teaches us how to relate to our bodies and to life itself, with sensitivity and presence. Horses are a portal to the soul and amazing creatures for healing, relaxation and rejuvenation.

I first sought out the wisdom Horse-Whispering 10 years ago and it was a life-changing experience. A decade later I’m partnering with Japhy Shefferly, a Healing Horseman, to combine the benefits of Sacred Sexual Empowerment, and Pleasurable Horsemanship. We offered this retreat last year and it was sold out and a huge success.

If you yearn for a change of scenery and feel the pull of Nature beckoning you outside...

If you’re drawn to connect to your higher self through ancient yogic techniques...

If you’re called to touch and be in the presence of horses…

If you feel the call to love your animal body, relish your sensuality & worship your feminine soul all the more unconditionally…

Sacred Sexual Empowerment is the celebration of the indivisible connection between our sexuality and our spirituality, that together power up our whole lives.

Through ancient practices derived from Tantra and Taoism, adapted and made relevant to modern times, you can experience transformation in your sexuality, love relationships, and your overall relationship with life.

Sacred Sexual Empowerment helps you to:

✦ Feel a natural ease with pleasure, sensuality and sensitivity in your body, with more connection to what lights you up and turns you on.

✦ Turn down the volume on critical thoughts in your head, and let the wisdom of your body guide you home to feeling really, really good in your skin.

✦ Address and release old shame that holds you back from enjoying your erotic nature to the fullest.

✦ Liberate yourself from family conditioning that limits your pleasure, and reclaim your Erotic Innocence.

✦ Feel empowered to make your own choices about your sex life, without outside interferences telling you what you should or shouldn’t want.

✦ Feel free to be fully yourself, expressing any side of your personality, any way you want, including your sensuality and sexuality.

✦ Develop the power in your body so that you have more intense, vivid and pleasurable experiences.

✦ Have healthy boundaries and say no or yes anytime you want. Feel empowered that you can protect yourself in any situation, so that you can feel safe expressing your innate freedom and carefree exuberance with the world.

✦ Feel safe unleashing your wildness, even if you’ve felt shut down, repressed or numb. Embrace your primal attractiveness and magnetism, and enjoy having fun with your natural born, undomesticated, sensual power.

✦ Use the power of pleasure to bring healing to any area of your life.

✦ Defy stereotypes and define being a turned on, sexually empowered woman or man, on your own terms.

Deva (a.k.a. Namas Dév & David Trevors) is an award-winning, San Francisco-born Classical Guitarist. Deva began playing guitar at an early age, and after countless hours and years of practice, he developed pain in his body that led him on a path of self-healing and spiritual work. Yoga was his gateway drug into a multitude of healing modalities including Reiki, Buddhist and Taoist meditations, Chi Gong, Massage Therapy, and Sound healing.

Deva has been practicing and teaching yoga and meditation in the United States, India and Southeast Asia, for over 20 years. He is well versed in multiple styles, including Vinyasa, Hatha, Kundalini, Ashtanga, and Yin yoga.

Horse-whispering, also known as Natural Horsemanship, is a method of horse training that has grown rapidly in popularity since the 1980s. The techniques embody the expression of "a kinder and gentler cowgirl or cowboy,” who develops rapport with the horses using methods derived from observation of the natural behavior of free-roaming horses, and rejects abusive training methods.

We like to call it “Pleasurable Horsemanship”

Furthermore, science teaches us that being close to livestock (like horses,) increases the power of our immune system. Your intimate contact with the horses will strengthen your resilience and vitality, so come cuddle a horse for good health.

One of Yoga’s definitions is Union. Through practicing Yoga you bring together the physical body, and Shakti, all matter and form, with Shiva, divine consciousness, and pure bliss is experienced.

Yoga’s also gives more focus and mental clarity, strength, balance, flexibility, relief of aches, pains and stress, good sleep, relaxation, and healthy hormones.

Part of Yoga, and the way to a happy, healthy life, is to connect with Nature, so this retreat taking place on a beautiful, 80-acre private space enhances the depth of the Yoga we practice here. We’ll be practicing in a beautiful sacred space.

We start each day with a morning yoga class to center you in your physical body, connect you to your higher self, and prepare you for the adventure of the day to come.

By slowing down the breath and quieting the mind, it’s easier to be present and “in the flow” for the magical activities that lay ahead--with the horses, each other, and the land.

Enjoy a weekend of Ayurvedic food—the food of Yogis. We serve vegetarian meals that are cleansing and healing, with flavors like turmeric, ginger, and lemon, cardamom, cinnamon, and honey. Energize your body with superfood smoothies, including Maca, Cacao, Medicinal Mushrooms—Chaga, Reishi, Lion’s Mane, Cordyceps.

Our meals will include elements of “Sattvic” eating, a yogic approach to nourishment that places emphasis on locally sourced, seasonal foods, fruits, nuts, seeds, oils, ripe vegetables, legumes, and whole grains, and Ayurvedic treats such as Golden Milk and medjool dates.

Being a Sensuous Cowgirl or Cowboy includes eating with your senses awakened and turned on!

The delicious water we drink during the retreat springs from our own source. Our name Running Spring Ranch comes from this spring. It’s some of the finest spring water on the planet, and you are encouraged to drink as much as you want!

Theobroma cacao is the raw form of chocolate—a delicious medicine used to connect you to the frequency of the Heart. Drinking cacao is an ancient practice generating feelings of joy and happiness. It's a way to connect back to your soul's purpose, and feel refreshed by the fragrance of the infinite.

We offer this beautiful heart medicine in a ceremony in the gorgeous “Great Glade” of Running Springs Ranch. Our cacao ceremony is a deeply transformative experience, with live music, and interactive rituals. Relax and feel the love in a beautiful, tranquil place where your nerves are soothed and your soul feels free.
