About our Introduction to Tantra Weekend:

"A wonderful weekend! Delightful, educational, erotic... This is what sex education should be, but isn't. I would suggest Pala and Al's workshop for any couple who wants to expand their love and enliven their sexual relationship.... My view is that there are very few opportunities for couple growth and play that are not dis-ease oriented. We need more JOY."

About our Intermediate Tantra Weekend:

"These workshops reveal the true mystery of sex and how to explore its nature. Through their vibrancy and openness Pala and Al convey all that is good about intimate relationships from celebrating difference to the ecstasy of the energetic sexual connection. We'll definitely be returning for further renewal."

"I hope you two have recovered from the weekend. I certainly have NOT recovered, thank God!

It's only been a handful of days but the wonderful energy and love from the weekend has continued to grow. We are having a blast and I quietly walk around glowing. Our heart talks were extraordinary successes, dealing very well with two difficult issues for us, and we've turned our bedroom and bathroom into a sanctuary with candles and oils and books which we've had for years and are now front and centre and getting dog-eared in a hurry.

The kids seem amused and warmed by our (increased) affection with each other and with them. I've told many people at work about the seminar. People are very open-I'm reminded how starving people are for something deeper. PC-pumping and initiating love-making with celebration of the other's chakras and eye-contact during intimacy have been three powerful tools in the past few days."

Couples Weekend July 21-23, 2006

"I felt very comfortable at all times. My concerns were addressed without me having to ask. I also never felt judged. After ten years of marriage our relationship had gotten somewhat lost. This workshop showed us how to reconnect and direct our energy towards a state of perpetual progress, adventure and discovery. With these tools our love will never again grown old." Laura

"This weekend was a wonderful way to reconnect with my wife and move forward in our loving open hearted journey." Ryan

Couples Weekend, April 21-23, 2006

"What a wonderful way to put the spark and love back into our marriage. After 23 years we were sort of just coasting. This has been a great eye opener with many great ideas. I was particularly impressed with how you took three couples (total strangers) and made everyone feel so comfortable together. Even my wife Karen was ready to run away when we pulled into the driveway and she ended up getting so much out of the weekend. Thanks for all the love and lessons."

"Pala and Al provide a totally nourishing and healing experience. They are knowledgeable, humorous, articulate and authentic. A weekend of exploration and education with them opens your heart and mind and leaves you yearning for more! I felt totally nourished (food/nutrition, mind, heart and soul) in the space you created."

Couples Weekend, July 19-21, 2002
Private Weekend October 29-31, 2004

2002: "Al and Pala's hospitality and generosity were overwhelming. The meals were fabulous. Pala is a wonderful cook and I have a whole new respect for vegetarian fare. The sexual fire breath was the most wonderful thing I have ever experienced outside of sex with my wife." Scott

"I didn't know what to expect when we arrived on Friday and I must admit, I was a bit nervous. Thank you Pala and Al for opening your home to us. Your love and joy were quite obvious and you are a living testament for the benefits of sacred sex." Cheryl

Follow-up Email: "I don't want to say that we are living in a state of bliss, but our relationship has completely transformed from what it was 6 months ago... We now spend a lot more time together, both in and out of our Tantric sessions. I feel that we have become new lovers again... You two have been an inspiration to us."

2004: "Al and Pala live by the very tenets that they shared with us. It is obvious that their love for each and for what they do is their number one priority. The exercises and activities make you explore new ideas and discover new things about yourself that you didn't think possible. They are outstanding facilitators and people. Blending the mind, body, and spirit together is truly one of the best ways to bring love into the world and the universe." Cheryl

"Al and Pala are truly a force for creating love and intimate connection in the world. They have opened their home and their hearts to us and many other couples so that we may learn how to take our relationship to a level we could not have imagined. Their holistic approach to sacred sex and intimate relationship provides tools that can open us not only to our partner but to the world at large. In this way, love radiates out from their love nest and touches even more people than they could have imagined. We just celebrated our 25th anniversary and couldn't think of a better way to commemorate this event than to visit Al and Pala again for a weekend of laughter, learning, and ecstatic bliss. It is hard to believe that our physical, emotional, and spiritual connection to each other could be stronger than it has ever been. A lot of individual personal growth and change have contributed to this but our first weekend with Al and Pala seemed to start the ball rolling. Our gratitude to you both for your openness, warmth, acceptance, and wisdom. We consider you our friends and will certainly make a return visit soon." Scott

Anthony, DC and Marcelle, DC Couples' Intro - December 6-8, 2002
Neuro-Emotional Healing, Cranialsacral Therapy and Chiropractic


"Since taking your Tantra Couples Workshop our relationship has grown by light years. After over 27 years together we are more in love with each other than we ever have been. We are communicating with each other on a much higher vibratory level than ever before.

As the kundalini has flowed, strong emotional blocks have been encountered in both of us. We are able to quickly identify what these blocks are about and using our emotional healing techniques from our practice, neutralize them. As these emotional blocks are removed, the kundalini moves up higher and stronger until the next block is encountered. It has been amazing as to how deep these issues are and releasing them has been both healing and eye opening experience to us. Tantra has been and is a wonderful spiritual growth experience for the two of us-and the sex is Great!" Dr. Anthony Brunelle, DC


Costa Rica Workshop 2004

"Thank you for putting so much effort into this workshop. We grew a lot and learned powerful new techniques to continue that growth. The setting was perfect, quiet, safe, comfortable, with the most incredible view." Tony and Marcelle

"We loved being in the company of everyone at the retreat and one of our fondest memories is of the dinners with the wonderful discussions kicked off by provocative questions by Al. We also think the facilitation and teaching by you both was very skillful. Pala is a very good meditation teacher."

"Al and Pala are very good at creating a safe space."

One month later: "What a wonderful weekend we had with you and the other couples. We may be a long way from ecstasy, but we are finding a path to intimacy. Sunday night we danced to old records (in the nude). I don't know when I've been happier."

Ros and Paul, Poets
Ros and Paul were wed in a private ceremony under this waterfall at our 2001 Costa Rica retreat.

"We tried everything they suggested! Everything worked! Each day we moved onto another level."

"This week has transformed us utterly. I came here in hope and trepidation, with no idea of how we were about to transform our lives completely, and forever. Who would have believed it? Not me. Not us. But the fearful, defended beings that arrived here have melted away in the tropical heat. We have achieved the oneness of love, the intensity and depth of connection, and the honesty and joy of communication, that I have longed for all my life. I am truly amazed.

One Year Later: "...we are as committed and loving as ever - if not more so, time having passed and love having deepened - and trying not to let things slip too far. We still put our relationship first, as you taught us(!), knowing that everything the kids really need (love, mostly)is going to be drawn out from this central source - that is, our love, the love we generate. We thought of you often last month, as it marked a full year since we came back, freshly wed, from Costa Rica and every day we celebrate the love that we discovered in ourselves, through you."

Email 6/11/02 (about a year and a half later)

We moved house, finally, a month ago. It's an amazing houseā€¦ There's so much space now (we were 5 of us in a 2-bedroom flat before), the children get a room each, I get a study, there's an integral garage (gold-dust in central Brighton), and an extraordinary 30ft x 20ft roof terrace. A huge, friendly, "just-want-to-sit-with-friends-all-day-and-drink-coffee-in" kitchen. It's the most incredible space, converted from a brewery stables and modelled by it's previous Italian owner on his house in Milan. You walk into this door which looks like nothing - looks like the entrance to grotty bedsits - and it opens out inside into an absolutely wonderful space - full of light and warmth and wood and the feeling of Southern Europe.

And there's something even more brilliant about it that Paul and I realised about a week after we moved in and knew we'd just *have* to tell you. I was standing in the kitchen doing something-or-other at the work surface, and Paul came up behind me and put his arms around me and hugged me from behind like that, and there we were, me feeling just complete love and contentment and joy and suddenly I realised - we both realised - that was our vision! I said it right there, felt it right in my heart, KNEW it - "Paul, this is the moment! The one we imagined!" That was the creative visualisation, the image we had of ourselves, in a kitchen, in some house that we didn't yet know where it might be but felt right and beautiful, and that we both imagined to be near the sea (this one is *very* near the sea - just 100 yards from the beach). We made it happen - we had achieved what we set out to achieve, and so soon! I thought it would take years and years - but only 16 months after we first created that vision of our future selves, we found ourselves living it. It's a thing of unbelievable power! It's incredible that love makes so much possible - anything, it seems. Now we have to make a new joint vision to work towards. We are talking it through, what there is left to want for ourselves. But in some ways I want nothing other than just to continue living this extraordinary life - this love, this house, this family. It is just everything I ever dreamed of.

Paul says I'm to let you know he's desperate to go on another of your courses, and we did just have a look at the various weekends on offer, but realistically, we can't afford such things at the moment. The new house (*our* love nest!) is quite a financial commitment for us... But don't worry, as soon as I sell a book for a reasonable amount of money (or preferably, the film rights!) we'll be hopping on a plane to Canada... It's good to have something for aim for.

We're both looking forward to your book coming out, and will be first in line for a copy. Meeting you both changed our lives into something wonderful, and for that we will always be grateful. Perhaps the loveliest thing of all is that other people are now gaining from us what we gained from you... not that we're teaching tantra! ... but the inspiration of the ideal... proof that the kind of love they dreamed of is possible. I know that when I met you both I thought, "I want what they have"... and now, I have friends saying the same to me. People warm to us just because we are so happy, because we radiate love - we're getting more work as a result, and being more successful in it too.

"This book is absolutely awesome.

There's a lot of stuff in it that I didn't know, so I know that I will be learning a thing or two from it.

From all the Kama Sutra books, this one I think is the best. Years ago I tried to read the Danielou version (the complete one), but come on, who can read that one? This one cuts to the chase and in addition offers little 'nuggets' of information about Indian society and their culture. I absolutely recommend it!"
