Mark A. Michaels and Patricia Johnson

Mark A. Michaels (Swami Umeshanand Saraswati) and Patricia Johnson (Devi Veenanand), a devoted married couple, have been teaching Tantra together since 1999. Their approach combines traditional lineage-based Tantra with the best contemporary methods so that students can bring heightened awareness and an expanded capacity for pleasure into all aspects of everyday life. Michaels and Johnson are the authors of Great Sex Made Simple (due out in December 2012), The Essence of Tantric Sexuality (Llewellyn, 2006), which won the USA Book News National Best Books 2007 Award in Health: Sexuality. Their third book, Tantra for Erotic Empowerment: The Key to Enriching Your Sexual Life (Llewellyn 2008) won the 2008 USA Book News Award, also in Health: Sexuality, was selected as an Indie Excellence Awards finalist in New Age Non-Fiction, and was a ForeWord Magazine Books of the Year Award finalist in the Body, Mind and Spirit category. Their meditation CD set, Ananda Nidra: Blissful Sleep (Projekt Records) was a finalist for the 2012 COVR Visionary Award for Innerspace/Meditational/Healing Music.

5 (Dirty, Little) Secrets from the Science of Sex
new sex toy 5 (Dirty, Little) Secrets from the Science of Sex
With Emily Nagoski, PhD
We all know that pretty much everything mainstream culture has to say about sex is a lie; everything from whom we're "supposed" to have sex with to what we're "supposed" to do in bed and how often, all of it is bullshit. Well, it turns out the "lie" goes even deeper than that: it goes all the way to the very nature of pleasure in the brain. The last ten years of sex research have revolutionized our understanding sex, so that everything we thought we knew about sexual arousal, desire, and pleasure... has been turned on its head. This workshop is an empowering crash course in the new sex research and how you can use it to maximize your sexual potential and map out more of your sexual landscape. Please bring your thinking cap. Everyone looks sexy in a thinking cap.

When: March 26th, 2015. 7:30PM -10PM.
