Healing Love & Tao of Sexuality workshops

  •  "This has been a weird & wonderful learning experience. The answers I was looking for were not the ones I found the answers to. I found it an odd way of learning in the first instance, but I was open to it. And I now think that the process of constant formative learning Gabrielle practices is very effective. It is a good way for anybody to learn. It has been a most amazing expansion of knowledge, or more precisely I feel I have come to a new way of knowing the world that offers opportunities to cross boundaries of consciousness. In a way that merely knowing a philosophy in an academic sense never could. Thank you, you are an awesome teacher." Dr. Michelle, Sydney
  • "This has changed my life! Given me a new ease on life..My health has improved and I feel more inner strength...There is never any pressure to do things, but an atmosphere of learning that makes me feel I can do this. I would recommend this course to any one wanting more from life." Linda , South Island, 2011
  • "When a student is ready, the teacher will appear...It is not always easy to learn from books. The life force of another being needs to be present to channel words into life, and Gabrielle walks the Tao so graciously imparting her knowledge & wisdom so freely. I would recommend to make an opportunity to taste it yourself!" Victor, Auckland

Her clarity comes from what I believe not only understanding the teachings of the Tao but from an in depth practice and daily living the Tao way.
