Mini Reveal Retreat - Santa Cruz, CA

Reveal creates the opportunity for us to support one another in letting go of body shame and loving our bodies, tapping into the innocence of exploring our erotic bodies, claiming our desires, feeling honored and revered in community, and putting down our masks to play and explore.

Tomas Booher is a sex, dating and life coach, bodyworker and inspirational speaker, trained in multiple spiritual and personal growth disciplines. His stand for respecting, honoring and supporting women’s leadership was cultivated from birth, being raised by a cadre of powerful women - his extraordinary mother and 4 sisters, in addition to his strong and sensitive father. For the past 5 years, he has been an executive handler for prominent female speakers and business coaches, offering them grounded and embodied support in conferences and meetings with up to 500 women. Again and again, they asked him, “Will you please coach our partners and sons?” And so he is now shifting to coaching men and boys on how to show up consciously in the world.

PAST PARTICIPANTS HAVE SAID:

"Before Reveal, I had a story and concern that the expression of my sexuality would be overpowering and overshadow others. During Reveal, I was able to explore my boundaries and feel into the impact of my turn on's and turn off's in a safe and co-created environment. I felt welcome and held. What I'm building from my experience is a deeper trust in myself around my sexuality and a letting go of story about being "too much."

"Like most men... most people, I think... I had a fuck-ton of sexual and energetic hang-ups that were preventing me shamelessly from feeling my authentic truth and the authentic truth of others. Hazel-Grace and Mika held the container with so much grace and skill and bravery, that by the end of the weekend all of those old narratives about my sexuality just had no legs to stand on any more. I feel so much more free now, more in my power - not only sexually, but energetically, and in my ability to confidently discern truth from falsehood in myself and others."

"Reveal was a more powerful, life-enhancing experience than I could ever have imagined. On the other side of this amazing experience, I have landed an expanded and more deeply affirmed sense of my sensual/sexual self. My most intimate relationships continue to feel the further opening of my heart and greater embrace of their emotional, sensual realities; this has enhanced our relationships far beyond my expectations. For myself, I have greater acceptance of my sexual desires and of my body; it's like all aspects of myself have dropped into a sweet, unconditional love-fest."

"I felt a little excitement, but mostly a high degree of calm and trust in the people. Beautiful! I felt safe, welcomed, and free the entire time to just be Me and relate to others authentically from my full sexuality. I am taking away a truer sense of myself, a greater acceptance and love for ALL of my body, and a profound appreciation for the diversity of forms the human body can take."

"Reveal allowed me to drop into myself and see me fully for exactly who I am and love me and be seen and loved for being all of me exactly as I am"

"I have been pursuing a path of personal growth, so before the weekend I felt like a fairly advanced practitioner. During, I definitely had some stuff come up, which I expected, and I worked through it. The benefits were that I see how far I have come and see I have tools to use for my own growth and peace of mind."

"OMG so much clearing. I got from the weekend a new confidence in my own power, my own yes, my own no, and my ability to respectful ly and kindly and POWERFULLY meet others in their power, their yes, their no. Above all, just a general energetic clearing around sexuality. It’s like there was a box lingering on the bookshelf, and I finally opened it up and there was nothing in there but a post-it heart with a smiley drawn on it."
