▽ For couples* who want an evening to drop into connection and play together.

If you’re in a healthy partnership and wanting to take things deeper, then this is for you.
▽ You feel connected, respected, and excited in your partnership - more often than not.
▽ You feel heard and understood and that tight knot of frustration was gone - replaced by looking forward to spending time together to play and flirt.
▽ You’re able to say what you feel and be validated.
▽ You share a skillful practice for getting things off your chest without getting into the same old fights.
▽ When it comes to touch, you both feel safe asking for what you want and confident at giving in a way that’s attuned to your partner’s desires - rather than falling into unconscious routine or performing.
▽ Seeing your partner lights you up and you feel excited about the new possibilities for pleasure you’re exploring together - rather than sex feeling like a chore.
▽ If you’re ready to cultivate feeling this way over the long term in your partnership, or wanting to have some deeper fun with the person you’re with, no matter for how long - you’ve come to the right place.
I am a sex & relationship coach and tantric practitioner, and even I can get swept up in my to-do list, fall into a rut when it comes to relating, and struggle to find the energy or time to initiate a new practice.
But when I do practice with my partner - ahhhh
We discover something unexpected, every time.
Magic happens, connection flows, and we end up exploring new pleasure and new ways of making love.
▽ I’m offering in-person work again after returning from 4 weeks of Sensual Arts training in the jungle in Bali.
Because even as an experienced practitioner, it can be a challenge to keep up practice in my relationships, in a world that values overwork and numbing out and doesn’t support us to have sustained erotic connection.
Being led by another teacher, where I could just let go into yummy practices was so invigorating…
And so, after 4 weeks of yummy, intimate connection practices, liberating communication practices, shadow work, conscious kink, and state-shifting tantric rituals…
I’m bringing this to you!
Jessica (Ananya) Harvey, PhD:
Certified Sex, Love & Relationship Coach
I’m a PhD scientist, but I left my academic career to spend 4 years in a tantric community.
As a scientist I was stuck in my head, suppressing my emotions and my body’s messages.
My default communication style was to explain, defend, and try to always be right.
As you might imagine, this lead to shallow, unfulfilling relationships and a very stressful life trying to figure everything out with my mind (also, sex was terrible).
After traveling the world for a year and intentionally saying ‘yes’ to what scared me, something happened that I can only describe as a sexual and spiritual awakening.
I became a neo-tantra teacher + sex & relationship coach, and have been studying emotional intelligence, trauma healing, and sexuality ever since, while walking the path of non-dual shaiva tantra.
(And yes, switching from studying bonding as a chemist to studying bonding as a sex and relationship coach was as wild an adventure as you might imagine!)
What is it?
▽ 3 hours of clothes-on connection practices for couples.
(If you are single or your partner can’t make it, bring a friend and practice together!)
▽ Practices include:
Energy play / neo-tantra (for example!).

“I’m incredibly happy with you. You’re talented, smart, you’re a great communicator. You got me in touch with parts of myself that I’ve been repressing for 20 years.”
“Jessica is the best tantra and life coach I ever connected with (and I’ve been to several), improving my sexual enjoyment but also how I viewed myself in the world.”
