Annette and Graeme
Former Nurse and Farmer, Annette and Graeme are now Relationship and Sexuality Counsellors and Tantric facilitators supporting couples to create the life and relationships of their dreams. with a tantric flavour. They’re a down to earth couple, highly skilled and hugely experienced in their chosen field, originally from rural Western Victoria before moving to Northern NSW. They live in the real world and masterfully present relationship and sexuality skills in a safe, grounded, loving and totally authentic manner.
Annette and Graeme both see Tantra as a path to being more authentically who we already are, rather than trying to become someone perfect or “enlightened”. And that being earthy and real is just as spiritual as being transcendent and divine…in other words Tantra is a path that can meet you whether you’re ordinary, or extraordinary…
Emotional healing and Tantric sex
Through Oztantra we teach skills in intimacy, Emotional intelligence, conscious relationship and sexuality. We specialise in assisting people to create more conscious, loving relationship because we believe that this is the ultimate place in which to increase our self awareness, open our hearts and live with greater gratitude and happiness. We see sexuality as a very important aspect of this pathway, rather than something to be hidden and forgotten until the last minute, for when making love comes together for a couple it becomes the hub of their loving relationship wheel.
Our partners are powerful mirrors and our ultimate button pushers, as well as partners in loving and creating pleasure. So however your partner is being is perfect for you to evolve and grow! Seen from this win-win perspective relationships can be lots of fun, in a profound way. So however your partner is being is perfect for you to evolve and grow!
We describe our committed relationship as both challenging and nurturing.
We are transparent in our work.
We understand the demands of relationship in modern life.
Authentic relationships, intimacy and sexuality
We believe the true purpose of our relationship is a pathway to deepen personal and spiritual growth through openness, honesty, ‘being real’, finding the divine humanity within each other. This creates a dynamic and healing environment.
Tantra in the modern world: beyond mung beans and dreadlocks
Both previously married, Annette and Graeme are an ordinary couple, who met in an Emotional Intelligence workshop in 2002. They are highly skilled at making ancient teachings about tantric sex available to a broad range of people and bring ‘accessibility’ to Tantra.
For Annette and Graeme, learning Tantra is largely about unlearning much of what has been learnt about sexuality. It is about now learning to feel and live from the inside out, rather than living just on the surface of life.
Originally trained by Oceana and Icarus, world-renowned Tantra teachers and the original developers of Oztantra, Annette and Graeme have a down to earth and highly experienced approach to relationship counseling and sexuality that helps remove many of the fears and misconceptions people may have about approaching Tantra and relationship.
They are serious about their work, and have also developed a strong sense of humour so don’t take themselves, or their egos too seriously…
Oceana and Icarus say that “Annette & Graeme are passionate Tantric practitioners with a keen desire to pass on their knowledge to others. They are dedicated to the improvement of…. your relationship, and using it as a pathway to spiritual awakening. They will continue the skilful facilitation and impeccable standards for which the Oztantra reputation is renowned. We are pleased with their commitment to our style, which is very honouring for clients, and teaches in a fun way – that really works.”
Leaving the ‘70s myths behind
Oztantra workshops, retreats and sessions offer profound, fun and practical techniques that support you to safely experience your relationship and sexuality. Oztantra also support your experience in a way that is respectful to both you and your partner and support your integration into your everyday life.
Annette and Graeme also debunk common myths that surround Tantra, as there is no need for group sex, you don’t need an alternative lifestyle or to live in a rainforest to benefit from it. And you don’t need to take your clothes off! All you need is a desire for a richer experience of life and a sense of adventure!
“You may not get what you want, but you’ll certainly get what you need! The spotlight has been turned onto what’s really going on, instead of what my ego thought was going on. Thank you so much Annette and Graeme for facilitating with such honesty, love and respect.” Nikola, VIC
