Make Love in the Unknown with Laurie Handlers and Michael Gibson
(Season 2 | Episode 54)
A Love Story | A Sex Story
[Tessa] Meet Laurie and Michael. Laurie’s book Sex and Happiness has had an enormous impact on me. So it is a thrill to interview this innovative and influential sex therapist, Laurie Handlers, on our podcast. I found Laurie and her partner Michael to be such good ambassadors of tantric sex with their deep understanding of the many levels beyond traditional lovemaking. If you are curious about what sex can become in your life then this episode will truly light you up!
An Excerpt from Our Show
[Michael] “Men and women can actually start to go down this path of being very connected in their lovemaking. They take on archetypes. [With] Laurie, I regard her as the goddess when we’re making love. She is the goddess to me and I am the shaman. I’m the one that’s holding the space. I’m the one that’s creating the magic and being present and holding safety for her and taking her along on this ride that her body wants me to take her on.”
Laurie Handlers, author of International Bestseller Sex & Happiness: The Tantric Laws of Intimacy teaches people ways to increase pleasure and return to love with themselves and their partners. Having done all of the work herself, Laurie is an expert in the field of sexuality, intimacy, and relationships. To Laurie, sexuality is the portal to healing and this work connects us to our creative life force.
As a speaker and facilitator, Laurie has taught transformational workshops since 1978 on topics ranging from releasing past emotional trauma, stopping the aging process, and Tantra (expansion through awareness) impacting tens of thousands of lives. She believes couples are an “endangered species.” Together with her partner she offers relationship coaching and holds workshops on how to be in extraordinary love. Watching people transform brings joy and excitement to Laurie’s life and career.
Studying since 2008, Michael is a Certified Sex and Happiness Coach and practitioner, the co-founder of the Academy for Men, and creator of Just Add Skill workshops for men.
Michael is also the creator of The Extraordinary Lovers Experience and co-facilitates with Laurie Handlers in many of her in-person and online courses all over the world.
Michael fuses ancient shamanic wisdom, sacred sexuality, and modern science into his coaching to create truly Extraordinary Lovers.
