“Wanted to let you know that your course changed me, made me more aware. I enjoyed talking with my loved one about the experience. Felt some foreign feelings I had not felt that were very interesting. Not quite sure why they came into my mind? But they did.”
— Anonymous, attendee of Sacred Masculine workshop with Hans
“This was an amazing experience that everyone needs. It does not matter where you are in your journey. Everyone is coming to this at different places in life with different experiences. What you take from the experience will be different for everyone and it will be meaningful. Run, don’t walk. You will not regret it.”
— Kyla, 2023, attendee of Reclaim Your True Self Retreat with Sarah
What is “The Arts of Sacred Intimacy for Couples”?
This workshop is designed for couples with a desire for more in their relationships.
So many of us enter into intimate romantic and marriage relationships with open hearts and good will —it’s a beautiful thing! But most of us discover that deep intimacy and marriage ask more from us than we are prepared or know how to give. Our families and our communities rarely know how to guide through the often-dark places we find ourselves.
In this weekend retreat Sarah Bella Anderson and Rev. Hans Peter Meyer will teach you practices for intimacy and trust-building and rebuilding. Tools that they’ve seen help so many other couples “find the light” in their relationships. Tools that will rekindle the flames of trust, intimacy, and passion. Sarah and Hans will enhance your capacity for connection, for intimacy, and for communication between yourself and the one you love.
Only space for 6 couples.
Who are your guides?!

A note on terminology
This event is open to any couple, however you identify.
We use the words “masculine” and “feminine” to refer to yogic notions of energetic polarity, not to be confused with “men” and “women.” All of us have a masculine/feminine polarity at play in our energetic bodies. Some of us are “masculine-identified.” Others “feminine-identified.” Some are more neutral than others. These are not static idenfitications. In fact, for most of us, there is a degree of fluidity. For the purposes of our work, knowing how to polarize into your body’s “preferred” energetic state is fundamental. Knowing how to polarize is one of the powerful ways of becoming trustworthy (if you are masculine-identified), becoming the nourishment your body and your relationship needs (if you are feminine-identified).
What to expect
- Up to 20 hours of practice.
- Solo work
- Masculine-only work
- Feminine-only work
- Yogic couples work
- Tantric couples work
- Sacred marriage work
- Movement, structured and unstructured
- Dinner date.
Play —whether it’s in dance, in a dinner date, or other forms— offers an opportunity to ignite the spark of intimacy and expression. The work Sarah and Hans do is very important to them. But they bring a playfulness to their seriousness, and trust that through the “work of play” of this retreat you will make a living thing happen between yourself and your chosen one.
Consent, but so much more than consent, is required for the individuals in a couple to know and experience each other. This event offers a brave and supportive environment for you to explore your relationships on a deeper level, fostering a stronger and more meaningful connection, a more profound experience of intimacy. Every exercise or practice is an invitation and you always have the choice of what your comfort is. Anything shared in the space, stays in the space.
