ANYA AND STEVEN

We are Steven and Anya. We have been Tantra teachers for nearly 15 years and have had a Tantric relationship for 25 years. We have been married 20 of those years. We present workshops on Tantra and do private Tantric coaching with couples and individuals in our Northern San Diego, California home. We have studied with most of the luminaries of Tantra, and in particular, the great Tantric master, Osho. We’re both trained in therapeutic and sensual massage. We live in a Tantric world of friends who are teachers, writers and workshop leaders in the field of Tantra. We are currently writing two books, and producing related products on Tantra, sustaining romantic love and sexual turn-on in long term relationships, and sexual health. We have a particular interest in the application of  Tantra and spirituality to conscious politics.

In the 1980’s she founded the Holistic Education Network at the first national conference on Holistic Education and in so doing gave birth to the field of Holistic Education.

She is the editor of 2 books on Holistic Education. She is currently writing “Intimate Passionate Love” which is specifically geared for couples in long term relationships who want to re-ignite the romance and passion in their relationship and those couples who are still in the midst of it and want to uplevel further over time instead of experience the sorrow of losing what they have.

STEVEN VOGUE, D.C., N.D.

He has the same extensive Tantric education as Anya and has been a Tantrica for 24 years and Tantra teacher for approximately 15.

WHAT DISTINGUISHES US BRINGING TOGETHER TANTRA, RELATIONSHIP COACHING, &  PSYCHOLOGICAL/PHYSICAL SEXUAL HEALING CAPACITIES

Between the two of us we bring together a high level of expertise in Conscious Relationship, Tantra and Sexual Health. Expertise in any one of these areas is hard come by and takes years of experience and education. Anya specialized in Conscious Relationship and Tantra. Steven specialized in Tantra and Health in general, sexual health in particular. We have been teaching each other our specialty.

The combination of our Tantric coaching and workshop experience and our combined psychological and conscious relationship skills and physical health and sexual healing capacities puts us in a position to be particularly helpful to you. The best use of our skills is derived when you provide us with extensive information about your relationship dynamics, your individual challenges, your spiritual experience, and your sexual aspirations and sexual health and then allow us to devise a program to help up-level the emotional and sexual intimacy in your relationship and actualize the potential of your partnership.

SHARING THE WISDOM OF OF  DECADES OF GROWING TOGETHER
THROUGH TANTRA & RELATIONSHIP EXPERTISE

One of our major qualifications for being your guide is our 25 years of being and growing together. In spite of being two very nice people who love each other very much and who have always been excellent lovers together, we have had our “stuff” that we either worked through, or are still in the process of working through. Every couple has their “stuff.” Perfection is a facade intended to delude you.

It is through the working through of “our stuff” that we have come to know, and continue to learn more about, how to work through relationship dynamics and overcome those things that are blocks to intimacy. We know what to do to increase your chances of success in doing the same. It is this experience that prevents us from being flip and shallow as we describe simple but difficult solutions. We have found our way around many road blocks, and because of that we are in a far better position to help you do the same.

SHARING OUR TRANSFORMATION PROCESS
WHILE IN THE CAULDRON OF THE TRANSITION
Nearly 3 years ago we were ready to write the book and establish the web-site. My (Anya’s) whole life had been a preparation for it – the trainings in counseling, in relationship therapy, in sexual healing, in Tantra, my experience working with endless numbers of clients, spiritual training and transcendent experience. So much wisdom had been gleaned. Paul had developed into an amazing Tantric lover and sexual healer. We both benefited greatly from each of us being loving, trustworthy, sexy, spiritual, and willing to give and take freedom with immense generosity so that we each could evolve into all we could be. As I prepared to write I suddenly realized that I couldn’t. The old stuck places where Paul and I triggered each other arose out of unconsciousness in each us birthed out of our childhood wounds and this still needed to be dealt with. We were still the victims of our own conditioning and we were responsible for breaking that conditioning if we wanted to move to the next level. If we didn’t break out of our old molds that were holding us back and diminishing the light of our fire and passion, in spite of the freedom, how could we help you?

This is what I asked myself and this is why I did not write. Instead I read. I read and studied every book by every significant expert. I developed exercises to put the ideas into practices when the writers did not. I discussed the ideas with Paul and we began to do the exercises. I developed exercises that were my own original ideas.

THE CAULDRON
Suddenly we were in a boiling cauldron. No unconscious word or act by either of us was, or is, swept under the rug to fester there and dim our desire for each other. We processed what was happening from the highest place we were capable of and began to shift our automatic behaviors. I had thought not to write until we had reached the exalted state of some teachers of conscious relationship who claimed to have fully attained the holly grail of conscious relationship. But once in the midst of the fire, we realized that there were two levels of conscious relationship.

TWO LEVELS OF CONSCIOUS RELATIONSHIP
The first level was doing the work of moving from conscious to unconscious relationship, which involved a dehypnotizing of the conditioned unconscious self.  This took time, effort and repetition. Doing this work is an act of power and consciousness in itself. To learn from a couple in this stage has it’s advantages. If the couple is honest and courageous enough to share their process as they are going through it, you will learn a great deal from them.

SHARING OUR PROCESS AS WE GO THROUGH IT
It is our intention to be that couple. Our experience is raw and fresh and we can share exactly what we do, in one situation after another. If a couple has reached to the other side of the work and fundamentally lives in a more conscious place (Conscious Relationship – level 2) they are very well equipped to give you an excellent understanding of what to do and the consciousness that you need to do it, but their own struggles are more distant and therefore less well remembered even if they are willing to share with you – and most are not. It is obvious to us from the changes that have transpired within us individually and in our relationship that what we are doing works. We hope to enjoy the cool luscious waters of Conscious Relationship Level 2 soon – and the sooner the better. In the meantime, we intend to create a recording of our journey that will be invaluable to others on the path.

WE INVITE YOU TO BE FELLOW TRAVELERS
When a conscious relationship partnership is combined with the bliss and power of sacred Tantric sex and optimal sexual health you have the ultimate. We invite you to be fellow travelers and journey with us on the path to Conscious Relationship, Tantra, and robust Sexual Health.
