Upon Arrival at Denpasar..

Upon arrival, you will be met and escorted to your own room, situated in lush tropical rainforest setting. You will very quickly understand how unique this venue is for a romantic couples retreat, especially with the quality of service, food and hospitality.
Ecstasy and Intimacy Retreat is for those who want the best for themselves and their relationship
Ecstasy and Intimacy Retreat is presented for those couples who choose the best for themselves and their relationship as during this retreat, a safe and held space is created allowing trust and intimacy to develop where those limiting underlying issues can surface in a supported and nurturing way. During this opening into intimacy with your partner, Cobra Breath breathing techniques and advanced lovemaking skills are introduced for you to bring into your relationship (you have plenty of time in the privacy of your own room to practice). Men learn Tantric Lovemaking skills in their relationship that will develop their “Master Tantric Lover” ability, as women connect to their own female sexuality through the “Power of Yoni“.
These skills are taught by Annette & Graeme, who also practice these skills in their own relationship and who really understand all the complexities of deep Tantric lovemaking.

Reclaim the Ecstasy and Intimacy in your Relationship
Join us at the Heaven in Bali Retreat Centre in beautiful Bali for a once in a lifetime intimate journey of love, acceptance and passion. Arrive at Denpasar Airport and be transferred up to the tranquil hills near Ubud where “working” on your relationship has never been so truly delightful, with the gentleness and serenity of your surroundings, along with the heart opening vibration of Bali gently peeling away layers of resistance… A couple’s retreat that will allow you to see each other, and yourselves in a whole new way.
Discover your own unique pathway that will lead you into the Divine that exists within you and your partner.
School lunches and sex?
When we are so busy with our daily work and family schedules, how do we maintain a loving, supportive, deeply committed, yet passionate and exciting relationship?
Ecstasy and Intimacy is a couples retreat that provides opportunities for you to connect with your lover and recreate the excitement of your early days, when nothing could keep you away from each other. And the skills for you to keep the connection alive when you get back home.
Security and stability – where’s the passion?
Often our priority for long term relationships is to provide us with security and stability. Yet in this search, we abandon the vitality and excitement of a new relationship for what ends up being predictability and sameness. We start to believe we know everything about our partners, we view them through the lens of our unresolved hurts and triggers and stop seeing them (and ourselves) for who they actually are. This seriously limits the potential of spontaneity, love and passion in your relationship.
Fall in love all over again.
This week invites you on an intimate journey of deep love and acceptance, to experience the ‘divine otherness’ of your partner, the newness that develops when we open to the now and fall in love with them (and yourself) all over again…This includes exploring aspects of sacred sexuality.
Discover the freedom in letting go of having to perform in sex, uncover the joys of receiving. Give up merely striving for the one big ‘O’ and be amazed at what you’ve been missing along the way.
Become empowered in your sexuality through tantric practices, learning how to experience intensity of pleasure whilst staying relaxed, allowing lovemaking to open your heart and create a fully satisfying experience that meets both of your deepest longings.
Honour your beloved
Honour the Divine in each other and embrace your beloved in mind, body and soul. Create a place of realness, safety and resilience in your relationship with simple, but profound communication and emotional skills to enhance your understanding and love for each other and help you manage the triggers that are responsible for much of the pain between you.
Spend time in separate men’s and women’s circles, experience our masculine and feminine essence – that which we arise from and return to after we experience the bliss of “oneness” with our partner.
Gain insights into your own relationship from being with other committed couples. Feel the love in the air. And the serenity in the dining area each evening as the place is deserted by couples heading off to their rooms for the night’s ‘homeplay’.
Every couple deserves this week!
Join experienced facilitators Annette and Graeme for a nurturing and rejuvenating couples retreat as we guide you and your partner in opening to intimacy, trust, spontaneity and playfulness, enhancing your experience of love, pleasure and passion. In a long term, committed relationship ourselves we seek to honour, respect and deepen the integrity in your own.

“Totally and truly blissful, ecstatic, orgasmic, joyous & divine! We felt so safe in Annette & Graeme’s sacred hands. Marriage saved.” Elizabeth QLD
“The greatest gift we could have given our relationship. It has helped me understand myself as a man, my role in committed relationship and given me the confidence to feel, desire and explore.” Andrew QLD
“I am thankful beyond words to Annette and Graeme for the week my husband and I spent here under their guidance. We were very nervous coming here, as we brought a topic into this retreat that has been challenging us as a couple for years. But what we experienced during this retreat went way beyond our expectations. Annette and Graeme are so kind, authentic, experienced and sensitive that we trusted them and the process quickly. It felt always so safe and loving that we could go through a learning process that helped us discover things about ourselves we didn’t know were there! It was lots of fun and sometimes emotionally challenging but it was so worth it. My husband and I both understood that we first needed to be deeply connected with ourselves if we wanted to be deeply connected with each other. The insight I got from that affected me and us so much. Things started to move in the right direction, something shifted. Those are not only words, it really happened! We felt it, we went through it. I understand the meaning of connection now at a deeper level for myself and for our relationship. We came there to address a challenge and left the week changed, stronger, more loving, and truly connected as a couple. Thank you so much!” Patricia, Germany
“You owe it to yourself to come to this workshop. My preconceived ideas about sexuality were gently dissolved away by Annette & Graeme. Gently guiding me to trust myself, shed the shadows I’d layered around me, they allowed a more vulnerable, authentic me to emerge. Their knowledge and skill came through as each individuals’ and couples’ scenarios received customised attention that didn’t feel like it came out of a can. Life changing. Thankyou Annette & Graeme.” K.L. Malaysia
“This has been the most soul searching and couples bonding experience ever. We came to the workshop in a loving and respectful place which was hard to imagine we could create an even deeper bond, but we are leaving with lasting to enhance our love and grow as a couple. Annette & Graeme created a safe environment which allowed me to open up and grow deep in my soul. I feel more centred in my journey as a woman which in turn will allow me to be a better person for my partner. Thankyou Annette & Graeme.” Susan, U.S.
“A truly amazing and hopefully life changing experience. I came here with a rather narrow view or goal oriented sexuality and left with a completely different view of myself, my relationship and my sexuality. Annette & Graeme are amazing facilitators, leaders, confidantes and whatever I needed. It feels like an entirely new direction has been shown to me. I can only recommend to really anybody anywhere to do this workshop when you have the chance- what a privilege.” Jan, Germany
“This retreat was very meaningful and fulfilling to me. To have experienced this beautiful journey with my husband over the 7 days has really created a sense of depth and beauty in our relationship and the closeness we share. This retreat is not just for long married couples but for all lovers who want to experience the depth of love and intimacy. Its an amazing feeling of lasting joy and intimacy we’ve shared and learned. Thankyou Annette & Graeme for taking us on this beautiful journey of intimacy.” Evelyn, VIC
“This workshop has helped me identify and connect with my inner self and desires which has in turn allowed my connection with my husband to grow by leaps and bounds. The workshop and the space was calming and brought peace to many of the difficulties I faced. Come with an open mind, be ready to be challenged. Annette & Graeme will help you find the love, the connection and inner peace you deserve.” Jan, Malaysia
“When we started we already had a very good foundation in our relationship. this workshop took that foundation and built upon it a home of stone. We were able to reach deeper into each others’ souls and hearts and I came away with even a deeper love of my life partner. Though the workshop she manifested a dream that we shared and Annette & Graeme, the other couples and the entire staff fulfilled that dream for us. It was truly magical to see what can happen out of love and compassion for others. This workshop was a life experience that I will never regret.” Derek, U.S.
“When we arrived I just wasn’t comfortable and didn’t know what to expect. On the second day we were asked to share about ourselves, I was reluctant to open up but after the group finished sharing I felt so comfortable with myself I did. It was one of the best things I had done in the 50years of my life and I had the best of the remaining 5 days. The men’s sharing was excellent with Graeme leading us. Thankyou Annette & Graeme for your help and support from the bottom of my heart. I would like to do another one sometime soon. May God continue to bless you both with the amazing job you do.” Lional, VIC
“I have a loving and trusting relationship with my partner but the pressure of working and living together was taking a toll on our communication on every level. We are committed to personal and spiritual development but couldn’t find anything that worked for couples. We do yoga and meditation and tried couples counselling- the latter a waste of time. Annette and Graeme’s work addresses the spiritual, the sexual and the practical. The synergy between loving your partner on a sensual, uninhibited, passionately sexual level, communicating better with deeper understanding, respect and honouring your own personal spiritual journey is encompassed in a week of carefully structured workshops, homeplay and personal attention. Their work has been honed thought years of experience and they are both very real and hands on. A wonderful experience on every level.” Suzanne, NSW
“Graeme and Annette truly embody their teachings. There is no clinical solution to understanding yourself. Their awareness of self and ability to step inside their own experience is truly a gift that cannot be described in words. If you are willing to challenge yourself to form a real connection with your own heart and soul then these two can take you to that place. It is only thought a true connection with yourself that you can rediscover how to love and connect with others.” Grant, QLD
“We came to Oztantra 4 years ago in a last effort to save our marriage. Graeme and Annette not just saved our marriage but have taken it to new levels time and time again, each more fulfilling than the last. This was my first week long retreat and I was not disappointed. The workshop cemented my relationship with my husband and with myself, taking them to a higher level of understanding and in doing so I fell even deeper in love with him. It took that love to a whole new and deeper level that I did not think was possible. Thankyou does not even begin to cover it. Can’t wait till the next one!” Nicole, QLD
“I came to the workshop for my relationship with my wife. While the workshop was based on the learning of tantric sex the input form Annette & Graeme provided so much more. The education and practice of tantric sex was enlightening and revealed to me the importance of not just giving but receiving and how this can really enhance our sexual relationship. But of so much more value was the counselling provided by Annette & Graeme of our wider relationship, including some one on one time with just my wife and I. Annette & Graeme are grounded, practical, experienced facilitators and I can commend this tantric sex workshop to every couple.” Rod, NSW
“I was a little apprehensive about doing this course. The apprehension eased in meeting the other participants in the course and feeling that everyone brought their own unique experiences, flaws and beauties. Graeme & Annette’s guidance through the course in being themselves has been truly inspirational. I have a better understanding of my relationship, my partner and most importantly, myself.” Dil, QLD
“I had begun the journey thinking “I will try not to have expectations” but I guess I did. Those expectations have more than come to fruition. I managed to heal some shame I had from many years ago, in an extremely subtle way. Through a very simple but profound experience. I am far more open to my husband than I possibly ever have been and this week, both personally and together, has been beyond words. I have a deep love and understanding for my self, my inner sexual Goddess and my amazing husband. I am excited about our future together and what this means for our boys, our family and our friends. Thankyou Annette & Graeme- for following your hearts, your passion and your authentic journeys. You have allowed me to go deeper into my own.” Mandy, SA
“I am a man who has been unfaithful to both his wife and his children. I have held shame around my sexuality since the age of 7. My experience during this workshop is seeing that what I did was selfish, thoughtless and hateful. However there is a significant need in moving forward, healing and forgiving myself and letting go of my shame that I’ve carried over my life. Thankyou for bringing this to my awareness. I love you. I am sorry. I forgive you. Thankyou.” Mark, NSW
“I thought I was a normal person doing normal things and that was me, I now see how much more I can be. And it was all inside me all along. I am now able to fully love my beautiful wife as she deserves to be loved and I feel deserving of her love. The magical energy we will take home with us will be obvious to others and so we can be a shining example of what is possible for them. As I told my wife on the start of day two, …. I love this course!” Lee, SA
“I found the experience extremely challenging, but Annette & Graeme created a safe environment with warm and genuine support. It enabled me to emerge myself fully into the experience and take everything I possibly could from it. It’s only just begun!” Matt, QLD
“This workshop provided an opportunity for myself and my partner to dedicate time and space for ourselves and our relationship. I also had the opportunity for deeper self enquiry which was very valuable. thankyou.” Lindsay, NSW
“Our 20 year relationship was strained to near breaking point due to differences in libido and attitudes to sex. It took an enormous amount of courage for my husband and I to enrol in an Oztantra workshop as we thought the teachers would be extremely alternative and the group would be full of ‘weirdos’. The benefits we gained at the course and following it have been beyond our greatest expectations, resulting in a deepening and strengthening of our relationship from the sexual right through to the spiritual. Annette and Graeme are very down to earth people who are gifted at helping others move at their own pace through relationship growth. The other participants were couples just like us, with their own set of challenges but looking to increase intimacy with their partners. I highly recommend others to put any hesitation aside, go to a workshop, and find out what it means to be fully present in life, relationship and love.” Robyn, NSW
“This weeklong retreat provided a gentle but direct environment where I very quickly resonated with feelings and emotions I had shut down for years. I was reminded of what life could be like again and was overcome with the love I felt for my children and partner. You just know life must be better if lived this way.” Greg VIC
“It has been freeing. I felt some personal restriction/reservation/doubt within myself I do not feel anymore, that other women have something that I cannot be. That mysterious restriction is gone. We are excited about the intimate connection we have” Marie WA
“This was a truly profound and life changing week. Sharing myself, feeling understood and loved even with my challenges was hugely reassuring. To get to know myself in ways I hadn’t imagined and to see my girlfriend open up and grow has been a beautiful experience” Kieran NSW
“I will never be the same again, my expectations were exceeded in a way that completely surprised and delighted me. No reflection about this week would be complete without saying how deeply grateful I am to recognize the beauty in my partner and to say this experience has awakened a desire to fall in love with him all over again.” Marcie QLD
“After 23 yrs of marriage things had become unexciting, boring, normal and living everyday life with work and kids being the most important. My husband and I had lost that intimate connection. We have discovered each other again, that we hadn’t really changed just lost the connection. We have now discovered the most important thing is to love yourself and put yourself first, making our relationship stronger and more intimate for the rest of our lives” Lisa SA
“My experience has been great and what I liked best was the safety of the platform created. The retreat raised issues that I could work with in an atmosphere of love and respect. At no time was I embarrassed by any of the content and the leadership was outstanding.” Allan QLD
“Annette & Graeme, thankyou from the bottom of my heart for giving me the support, love and space, for holding me up when I would have given up. The work I have done here is helping me to find the light and love inside myself and feel empowered to live life to the fullest. This has been another profound step on my journey. .” Lucie VIC
“I was dragged to this workshop wondering what the hell I was in for. I was very nervous from the time I agreed to halfway through the first day when I realized the other people there were no different to us. Opening up new ways of thinking about relationships I now realize I was in a partnership with my wife; now I am in a relationship with her. Learning that 99% of the time my wife’s frustrations were not about me, I just happened to be there, has helped our relationship 500% in just 6 days!” Jarred QLD
”Through the workshop we were able to free ourselves of our deepest issues which were haunting our relationship and able to reconnect from a place of deep love and heartfelt connection, rather than a superficial place of ego. In short, this saved our relationship and I cannot wait for our new lives together! It’s like we’re in the honeymoon phase all over again but in a more authentic space. If you’re considering this retreat you won’t regret it, invest in your relationship potential.’
Anastasia 26yrs, NSW
“I would never have chosen this as something that I would have done or even needed to do. I now cannot imagine not being able to feel, this brings joy to me and opens me to everything, especially my partner, and surprisingly myself. I am alive.” Brett NSW
“I had no sense that finding ecstasy and intimacy in myself could give me such a taste of freedom. Somehow finding and accepting myself turned 40yrs of anger, defensiveness and fear into a heightened sense of my capacity for joy, love and sexual intimacy” Lin VIC
“My marriage of only one year was on the line. Coming to this retreat was both a no brainer and a matter of urgency. I had no idea what to expect but knew my relationship was worth it. Looking back on this intense training in such a tranquil environment it has brought to my relationship what we’ve always wanted and yet nothing we thought possible. Our connection, devotion and awareness, not only of one another but ourselves is a gift we will carry for the rest of our lives.’ Oliver 34yrs, NSW
“Before this retreat we were still in love after 21yrs of marriage, children and real life but had lost touch with one another. The retreat showed us how to reconnect with one another, our own feelings and move beyond our old, destructive patterns and work together to become more whole, loving people.” Robert NSW
“I feel so amazingly alive and more aware of my feminine self- I feel like a Goddess to both myself and my beloved partner. I have never before experienced this unbelievable sensual, tingling, raw emotion. Intimacy & Ecstasy at the same time, with all my heart. Annette & Graeme I am honorably grateful for my unique experience.” Sonia NSW
