Michele Brookhaus and Elena Salazar are kind, present, sensitive and experienced facilitators who will open up authentic conversations about about pleasure, desire, and sex and how they connect us back to our bodies . . .  back to our hearts . . . back to our knowing.

Join them in a serene island setting where they craft an intimate and safe space for you and a small group of like-minded women to discover your YES!


We believe in the power and potency of the feminine.

We believe that when women gather they are a force.

Women are a force … a force for good in the world, and a force for healing each other. This gathering encourages exploration into our deep knowing, and provides a safe container for women to explore their pleasure, sensuality and sexuality.

  • You want to feel the stirrings of your Yoni (abode) and create your life from there.
