Professional Development

If you work with couples, you know how vital sexuality is to create feelings of intimacy and connection. However, without specialized training, you may find it challenging to bring the subject up or feel ill-equipped in helping couples with desire issues.

Even if you have expertise in this area, you may be interested in learning how a mindful approach differs from traditional sex therapy.

Mindfulness offers a new paradigm to the helping professions that centers on exploration rather than treatment.

Many of our participants are seasoned clinicians who are interested in learning our inside-out approach, where the focus is on awareness rather than prescriptions for change.


There’s no better way to learn a model than by experiencing it first-hand. If you are in a relationship, consider attending our core program: Tending Eros in Long-Term Relationships. About half of our participants are helping professionals. You can apply the theory and skills that we teach in our retreats to your work with couples.


Maci presents at conferences and offers professional development programs in the USA and Europe. Please check Events for more details.

Our Tending Eros series and many of our webinars and professional workshops have been approved to offer Continuing Education credits through the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT). Please check with your state board to determine if you can apply these credits towards your licensure renewal.


Individual consultation is available to practitioners that want to incorporate somatic and/or mindful approaches in their work with couples. Please contact us for more information.
