We feel that Dawn’s address should be somewhere between heaven and earth. Dawn has created magic in our lives that, after 18 years together, continues to deepen. Emotional and physical intimacy has always been important to us. Our vision in working with Dawn was to expand our horizons with depth, clarity, playfulness, and warmth. We both have busy lives, yet we realize the importance of this special time together. With Dawn’s guidance, it always seems new has brought us closer with each year that passes. Before we first met, Benjamin would go each Sunday for sessions with Dawn. These (PG-13) sessions brought awareness, connection, and personal growth. As a couple, we couldn’t wait to work with Dawn. She has brought so much to our lives. We treasure Dawn, and couples of any age would benefit in working with her.
A big joyful YES came bubbling up when we first met Dawn. We both felt a strong resonance and level of integrity from her. We, being intrepid adventurers, felt in alignment with her teachings. Our intention was to learn more about the whole realm of sex and intimacy. We were seeking in-depth knowledge of the practices and ways to make our relationship more intimate. What we received from Dawn was a masterful weaving of both intimacy and sexuality teachings. Experiencing her work overtime drew us to decide to do a year-long immersion with her including teacher training and travel to India and Ireland. We found the whole experience amazing! The subject matter and mental constructs surrounding sex and intimacy are usually charged with fear, excitement, uncertainty, and anticipation. In this vulnerable and powerful state of being, Dawn’s ability to hold a safe container while pushing one’s edges is finely tuned in heart centered awareness. Dawn has the rare ability to clearly convey the subject matter and then extend it into actual practices. She has a way of delivering her wisdom with humor and truth. We now have a treasure box full of tools we can use at will to create higher levels of pleasure and sexual intimacy. What we found throughout our training was a deepening connection with ourselves and our partnership. Our time together was invaluable. We can’t speak highly enough of Dawn and her work.
We contacted Dawn to improve the quantity and quality of our sex lives. Chris wanted more sex and Nicole wanted better sex. We could not be more grateful for Dawn’s help. She brings out the best in both of us. She has helped us to see our parts in the interlocking stubbornness in our relationship. We can now live in a connected yummy partnership, enjoying our bodies. She has a unique blend of kindness and intuition and gently directs us to what we need to see in ourselves like an easy flowing stream finds its course. In the sessions, sometimes we work on the frustrations in our intimate connection and sometimes Dawn helps us learn more about our bodies. She is so comfortable, matter of fact, and caring in her approach that, surprisingly, we never felt awkward. We wholeheartedly recommend Dawn to all who want to grow and become more sexually connected with their partner.
