What language is used for teaching in Portugal?

In Portugal (as in Spain) we teach exclusively in English, without translation.

The topic of sex is very personal, how is the space of intimacy preserved?

A safe and contained space where privacy and boundaries are respected at all times is guaranteed at all times.

There will be no sexual activity or nudity in the group.

And of course, all more intimate couple exercises will take place in the privacy of your own room!

If couples voluntarily talk about their experiences, everyone is bound by a confidentiality agreement to keep the information confidential.

Are there any special conditions for participation?

All exercises, meditations and the knowledge we share with you are designed for reawakening and promoting presence & awareness in your own body.

We show the difference between ‘conventional’ sex – with tension, seduction, intense stimulation and climax – and ‘conscious’ sex in an environment of warm, loving, fulfilling relaxation that has no goal orientation.

Through this retreat, participants can experience a deep journey of healing.

What is Making Love's approach?

What are the benefits of the Making Love Retreat?

The nourishing retreat days provide many good insights, experiences and tools to preserve and grow the precious gift of love in everyday life.

Finding new, conscious ways in sex and exploring them together has a positive effect on all levels of life.

In this retreat, we don’t teach techniques but an attitude and a new approach to body awareness. Therefore, we have no secret recipes for quick happiness, healing emotional wounds or trauma.

Relaxed sexuality brings very deep healing and relaxation. However, it will not solve all relationship problems on its own.

Who is Diana & Michael Richardson?

Diana & Michael Richardson

Also known as Puja and Raja Richardson, their interest in sex, healing and meditation initiated a journey into the world of Tantra – the union of sex and meditation that has changed the course of her life. She has written several books on the subject of conscious sex. Puja and her partner Raja have now been successfully leading the Making Love Retreats for years, where they pass on this knowledge. This work, teached by Max & Jasmin Muzio (authorized teacher), is what you will experience when you book a retreat over this site.

Can the retreat also be attended individually?

The embodiment of the material taught is only possible as a couple.

It is therefore not possible to attend the Making Love Retreat alone.

However, we do offer individual and couples counselling and support, based on our training in SE (Somatic Experiencing / trauma therapy) and our work and experience as adult educators in the field of sexuality.

Please click here to contact us over the form if you are interested.

Is the offer only aimed at heterosexual couples?

In the retreat we work with the body’s own male and female polarities. This is a subject area that can only be experienced in direct embodiment.

Our offer is therefore aimed exclusively at heterosexual couples (a couple with one male body and one female body), because neither Diana and Michael Richardson nor we have had any experience of this and teaching in this area would not be authentic.

We are always very happy when people with expanded sexual orientation and constellations get in touch with us and share their experiences with us.
