Praise

From The Body of Sex Workshops on College Campuses in the US

I walked away from your all-female talk being absolutely blown away – by you, your poise, your openness, your ideas, what you shared and how…I felt so welcomed and whole in your workshop.

Your talk helped validate my instincts, which I hope will allow me to make better choices for me in the future.

I felt so welcomed and whole in your workshop… Thank you so much for the work that you are doing… it’s so important, I wish everyone at my school, every teenager, every human could be in those workshops.

The sense of calm in the room [during your lecture] was incredible considering some of those women were physically sick due to trauma in the 24 hours preceding your talk- I could not be more thankful.

I think your work is extremely integral in empowering all individuals, regardless of gender, to take ownership of their body and really explore and enjoy it.

So much of what you said resonated deeply with me and came at a point in my life in which I badly needed to hear it.

I just want to thank you so much for coming and speaking. I am sure you can tell from the turn out and the sincerity with which my peers speak, but people my age (especially women) are really craving these kinds of conversations, especially with strong, adult women role models. I think you bring a certain literacy and vocabulary to the table to speak about these kind of issues that is important in itself just to begin having these dialogues, and secondly, for naming and identifying the very real experiences of sexual trauma, frustration, and insecurities women face here. You may or may not be surprised that most people in that room have probably never heard that they can be sexually empowered without having sex or that sex is beautiful. There is truly such a need for female empowerment, sexually and otherwise, and your words really made an impact for a lot of folks in the room. I know they did for me. Thank you.

I was deeply inspired by your talk and feel that you have a real, world-changing movement building. I think your outlook will provide the much searched for solution to issues of sexual culture on college campuses, and I hope that your voice will touch the lives of so many more.

I was at your talk at Wesleyan about 2 weeks ago, and it was incredible. It was absolutely what I needed to hear and I really appreciate it. I so want to bring you back to Wes, hopefully to an even larger audience!

One of your points that I found particularly relevant was about listening to your innermost voice and trusting that it will lead you in the right direction. Particularly when it comes to romantic relationships I know that there have been many times where social pressures and the desire to fit in have drowned out that voice inside me. Your talk helped validate my instincts, which I hope will allow me to make better choices for me in the future.

It was a truly powerful seminar and your message really resonated with a lot of happenings and conversations on campus. I think there would be a lot of space and need for the work that you do in your workshops on this campus.

Thank you so much for coming and speaking to us, so much of what you said resonated deeply with me and came at a point in my life in which I badly needed to hear it.

Please know that [your work] has already made an impact in so many people’s lives.

The sense of calm in the room [during your lecture] was incredible considering some of those women were physically sick due to trauma in the 24 hours preceding your talk- I could not be more thankful.

One of the biggest things that I got out of your talks was [about] the emotional connection..[that it] makes the relationship better physically and that is not something that men are ever told….And even if it is for one night, the ability to feel comfortable and have a deeper connection than just sexual intercourse is not something that men are told about, but that was definitely something valuable about your workshop.

That was an amazing moment for me.. when you describe what it’s like to be a man and express your sexuality. And how we’re taught to behave in a very limited and certain way. I was able to self-reflect and learn that, “wow, she’s right about that, that’s exactly what it’s like!” I was actually kind of stunned, because I was like, how is she speaking to the male experience but she personally hasn’t possibly lived through this?

One of the best parts about what Sarah brought to CC: finally, a real person who wants to talk honestly and openly about the potentials and dangers of sex and sexuality, and is not bound to a strict code or rule book. It’s safe to say that sexual assault and sexual encounters that are not 100% consensual and satisfying to both parties can be found in any college campus or small community…

I just want to say thank you SO much for coming to Middlebury to speak with all of us young individuals about sex, pleasure, and loving yourself. I think your work is extremely integral in empowering all individuals, regardless of gender, to take ownership of their body and really explore and enjoy it.

I think the work you are doing is super awesome and I can’t help myself from blabbing to all my friends about it.

I was actually speechless leaving your talk as I was processing all you said and how my view of sex, sexuality, pleasure, etc. was completely altered. When I talked to my boyfriend I found myself explaining that, although I am a woman, I literally know NOTHING about [my own anatomy] – I get the general idea of it’s parts/shapes but when I am to reflect on it I realized how little I actually knew. And your talk really gave me a refresher on what it means to be a woman- and that is SO empowering. You were able to paint sex and sexuality in a positive light, encouraging conversation around a topic that, as you mention, is incredibly misrepresented in society. This is why your work is so important and should spread because it is essentially the Language Arts of sexuality.

I am so excited to see how much momentum this catches, and I really appreciate all you are doing for men, women, and people of all sexual orientations, identities, and preferences. You bring the best energy.

I feel so, so alive talking about this stuff. It’s like the language I needed so badly. I’d love to find a way to learn more/continue this healing exploration of sexuality. I feel like the hour with you brought me to the cusp of learning this language, and I don’t want to stop.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

When I decided to come to your talk today, it was mostly to ask how, as a feminist, I could ever enjoy sex again.

I left with the understanding, and the tools, to know that I can enjoy sex, not again, but, more likely, for the first time.

I left your talk today brimming with emotion because over the course of an I left your talk today brimming with emotion because over the course of an hour, I walked myself through every jarring, uncomfortable, wonderful or confusing sexual encounter I’ve ever had and managed to do something that I’d never even considered an option: forgive myself.

I experienced an inward compassion that I’d never allowed, where I acknowledged how important those negative sexual feelings were and suggested that there was a reason for them other than me being broken.

I’m not, nor have I ever been, broken. Maybe society is…..


Wilderness Work

I am honestly in awe of your ability to guide, intuit, hold space…. Your ability to truly listen and allow us to be as we were, while providing guidance and compassion is beautiful to both behold and be a part of. I am having a hard time finding the words to describe the beauty with which you lead, but know it is an art you have definitely developed, and it truly does appear to come from a deeper knowing. Your humor, as well, is refreshing, light-hearted, genuine and a gift to us all.

I feel like I have my life back.

Words often fail me when I want to convey just how impactful this experience was and remains for me. Not a day goes by that I am not reminded of something that was touched, seen, felt, or healed from this trip. Of all the learning experiences I have signed up for thus far in my life, being led into the wild by Sarah has touched me more deeply than any other, and I am so happy to have this work forever ingrained in my soul. If you need your connection restored — to self, to others, to nature, to the wild in us all — this is one path I highly recommend.

If you are feeling the itch inside, the rising tide of knowing that something is ready to shift for you — something you may not be able to put words to yet, but something nonetheless is calling to you from inside…. calling for space, calling for attention, witness, accountability, clarity, direction, ownership, reflection… this trips provides a perfect container for you to access all of what you need RIGHT NOW for your life, sourced from within and tended to by nature and by Sarah’s skillful, loving guidance.

It is difficult to put into words how powerful and life changing this wild woman trip was for me. It was a process that worked through my mind, body, heart, and soul…I reached places on this journey I had no idea existed. It was challenging yet incredibly fun and felt free flowing…This trip has changed my life drastically and I will be forever grateful.

It was easily one of the best experiences of my life thus far, and I loved every bit of it. This is probably the first workshop type experience I have ever been a part of that I walked away completely and utterly satisfied with everything that had been offered….my own experience is that my expectations for this trip were completely exceeded in every imaginable way. I’ve never felt so safe in a group of women

I fell in love with every single person on this trip.

Sarah is a gifted and natural teacher who has much to offer anyone interested in a deeper, more meaningful perspective on human sexuality, self-authority and embodiment.


MogaDao Sacred Daoist Sexuality and The Great Remembering Workshops

Your teachings have been a homecoming for me, my body, and my sexuality. It’s given me a ground for what sacred sex really means and is and provides beauty and profound comfort to my experience of life. My work with clients is enhanced, my sexual relationship with my lover is becoming more engaged and playful, and I feel great in my body.

The work I’ve done in just two months with Sarah and her teachings of MogaDao Sacred Daoist Sexuality has been beyond transformational….This work is SO much bigger than sexuality. This is about rediscovering who. you. are. and how to be a vessel capable of holding all that power, all that pleasure, and knowing how to give your heart out to the world in the most beautiful way. I recommend mogadao to every friend in my life who is struggling with life purpose, clarity, low energy, and of course, sexual intimacy issues. This is one of the best investments I’ve ever made.

My sexual body and organs are alive again and my power is being restored to its true seat.

Something about the concepts Sarah introduced soothed a part of me that had been agitated for a long time. Growing up in a society that looks on sex with shame and embarrassment, I never really knew how to appreciate sex, though clearly it’s something that should be appreciated… I gained concepts and tools to appreciate sex and sexuality in the ways I had always wanted to, but never knew how. It was a really emotional experience, reconciling me with my own basic nature. But entirely worth it – I feel more comfortable, aware, and empowered as a living creature, and I’m excited to continue developing my awareness in this realm.

The perspectives I gained about sexuality, sex and relationships has opened me to align with aspects of my True Self that I was judging and suppressing. This led to some mental/emotional healing and further fulfillment in the intimate relationships realm of my life….The men’s self cultivation practices have played a big role in my shift from a significant level of chronic fatigue to more consistent abundant energy. My productivity level has increased, which has allowed me to create more work-life balance and get back to being on fire with my life purpose. Nothing is more precious to me than that. Thank you, Sarah.

I had no idea that I was experiencing myself thru my community at large, and not really engaging with my own vitality and regeneration. Everything has shifted for the better.

I have been practicing MogaDao Qi gong for a few years now but this workshop with Sarah was transformational for me and for my practice. The deep sense of reverence for the body, my body, as a holy vessel, one to cultivate and care for, as my responsibility changed me and my practice… I feel stronger with a sense of vitality, my energy is more clear, my laugh has returned.

Sarah helped me open up to a much deeper understanding of the female. (as I am a male). Her teaching style is genuine and engaging. I sense she really knows what she is talking about from a deep place within her.

You changed my life, Sarah. Thank you.

It feels like a deep blessing that she is sharing this wellspring of wisdom, and that it pours through her so fluidly and naturally.

Sarah’s teachings create an atmosphere of such unconditional sexual self-acceptance that it has helped me relax with all of myself in a way I never have, or at least not since I was a young child.

International Education Programs through Where There Be Dragons

Having Sarah around me has helped me regain whatever confidence I lost, and then some. She radiates love and confidence and has inspired me to love every inch of myself physically and mentally.

She, just cares, and that is the best medicine…. She is able to explain things in ways that get her point across so clearly that you actually feel what she is saying move through your body.
