Hi Cathy, we just wanted to say again, thanks for an awsome weekend.  The whole weekend was magical, went like clock work, was both challenging and inspiring and much more than we expected it to be. 


Hi Cathy, Just wanted to thank you for the fantastic weekend! Andy and I got so much from it and it has given us new found enthusiasm to continue with our tantric practices. We were so blessed to have you as our teacher, your grace and beauty are evident in everything that you do, and you give so many people hope with your work and teachings.


I suppose it was a natural 'progression for me' having first of all participated in the beginners womens half day workshop, the singles weekend retreat, and attending the meditation classes held every second Wednesday for the past year. In this time I have got to know Cathy personally. Cathy is a wonderful person and a wonderful 'teacher' I am always left feeling so 'inspired' by her way of teaching.

So knowledgeable and compassionate, and a way of imparting the information on a level that anyone can understand. My personal quest I suppose was to graduate from just 'having sex' to making love through the heart centre as a tantric practice.I feel that this is possible now, and it is simply up to me to put into practice what Cathy has taught me. I believe that 'sexual energy' is a huge part of our natural makeup and to learn how to utilise that energy for forms of healing and wellbeing has been profound.

I do indeed recommend Cathys courses, workshops and retreats. The recent couples retreat was such a perfect weekend , ideal for new couples or those in need of revamping their sexual energy together. Not many teachers could teach tantra in the natural, loving way that Cathy does, everyone feels totally at ease with her lovely accepting way.
