My study, my passion, and my work are in the art of relating. Every relationship we have with another being is based on a foundation of our relationship with ourselves. True intimacy, real connection with others, requires us to be able to look honestly and deeply at how we feel. In order to be capable of intimacy with others, we have to first be willing to look into ourselves. We all have fears and insecurities, pockets of grief and anger. This is all part of being human. We run and hide, distract ourselves and overcompensate. We seek out approval and love from others to fill in the empty places within ourselves. We get locked up in our heads and play out roles with those around us, and this keeps us from being able to really touch and feel our loved ones or our own emotions. Our pain gets in the way of truly feeling Love.
The way into love, the path of healing, comes
through the body and through the acceptance of our pain. One of the most direct paths to intimacy and
real connection is through the medium of sexuality. As a Somatic Sex Educator, I work to connect
my clients with their bodies, with their sensations and their natural and
healthy capacity for erotic expression. As an Intimacy Coach I help to bring a depth of honesty and care into all
of my client’s relations. My journey has
taken me into the practices of Tantra and into the Taoist and Shamanic
practices of Sexuality. I support others to release their armour and defenses, to become free of the things
that block us from feeling, loving, and sharing our truth. In understanding the sacred feminine and the
sacred masculine, we can step into a place of beauty, power, and real
interaction which everyone craves. These
energies are a part of the core of our beings and form the foundation of
self-love. My path is to expand awareness of the healthy sexual energies and of their place in conscious,
All About Eve
Well Behaved Women Rarely Make History!
Eve Marie was called to the path of Love from a young age. She gives these words about her experience:
“As I was growing up, I noticed that compared to others, my sexual energy was very pronounced. It was something that many people recognised in me straight away, yet something I wasn't able to hide and I didn't quite understand why I had to. Generally, men were either totally attracted or scared. Women were threatened and standoffish, often feeling a need to protect their boyfriends or husbands.
Sexuality was a huge force in my life and I had no idea what it really was, what to do with it or how to channel it. I experimented for many years, playing out different sexual energies and roles in my relationships with both men and women. My experiences ran the full spectrum, from totally out there, crazy encounters to the other extreme of total sexual shutdown. It was my sexual shutdown that symbolized an end to my unconscious ways of sexuality and relating".
Eve’s journey led her into a study of Conscious Loving and Sacred Sexuality. She is a student and practitioner of Traditional and Modern Tantra, Yoga, and Shamanism.
She has also explored both Taoist and Celtic traditions of Sacred Sexuality and the practices used by each of these cultures to honor the self and the sacred nature of intimacy.
Rather than claiming mastery of these practices in relating, Eve sees herself as a bridge. She lights the way to real and honest sharing, showing others how to go deeper into their truth and share that truth openly with others. Her work is to bridge the gap between unconscious and conscious sexual experience.
Eve has continued the divine journey of opening her heart and deepening her experience of self through ongoing study, session work and personal experience.
She is a remarkable and vibrant woman, attractive, healthy, intelligent, and deeply connected with the roots of her being. Eve has a heart of gold, an amazing sense of humour, and a passion for juicy aliveness. In every aspect of her life, from the professional to the personal, she shares her spirit in a way which helps others to discover these same qualities within themselves. She is an engaging and dedicated woman, driven to deepen her study of Self and her capacity to guide & assist others in every way possible.
Eve was the originator and lead event organiser for the ISTA Australasian Sex and Consciousness Conference in 2011 and 2012 (now named The Taste of Love Festival). She pioneered a conference format which ensured a world-class lineup of forty local and international Sex Educators, Relationship Coaches, and Tantra Teachers. Adjunct to the conference was a Youth Program, Parenting Program, a Lovers Masked Ball fundraiser, and a number of week long professional trainings.
She also raised funds and sponsorship to create an 12 month platform for local youth to explore and express topics on sex, love, and relationships.
Eve was the founding visionary and creator of The Sydney Tantra Temple in Randwick, Sydney.
Eve has participated in a number of Celtic/Pagan and Toltec/Shamanic ceremonies and sweat lodges, as well as women’s circles, festivals, conferences, and talks.
