Where can you discover your body as a gate into more aliveness, pleasure and meaning?

Truth Bites

Feeling pain as creative activism

On feeling helpless in a world that seems to be crumbling before our eyes… Each moment brings possibilities for creative activism. In a world that teaches you to be an obedient and numbed little consumer, to listen to authority rather than yourself and to...

Vagina Dentata

A curious thing it is, that the default world feels ok with the yin qualities of the vagina – their capacity to receive a penis – and rather less ok with their yang qualities, like their capacity to ejaculate, menstruate and give birth.. Except of course...

On slut-shaming men

I know that sexual shaming is rampant universally, but through my work I often come into contact with how women – feeling threatened by male desire – so often shame men, sometimes overtly, but often unconsciously. I know many of us have been victims to...

You are not alone

So much drive, so many quests for being happy, for getting on with life, putting on a brave face, sugar-coating, trying to be be perfect, hiding our perceived weaknesses. Is being happy and functional in a world with this much imbalance and suffering even sane? Today...

The Dark Feminine

The European fairytale hag, Medusa from ancient Greece, Hel, the Germanic Goddess, the snapping vagina in Navajo culture, Ereshkigal of the Summerian Inanna myth, Kali, Lillith… Throughout our human history, we have collected myths and tales of the Dark Feminine. We...

Splish Splash

“All of the fluids in our body become moist when we are moved – we cry, we lubricate, we bleed, all of the numinous experiences of our bodies have to do with moisture. And it’s moisture that brings life to this planet.”- Jean Shinoda Bolen Recently hundreds of...

What is Wild knows how to Thrive

What a simple action, yet we seem to have forgotten it: the art of listening. Through listening, our senses can start to open to all the subtle yet powerful guidance that our earth – and what is wild – offers. We can begin to see the simple abundance that...

I only had sex for money once

I only had sex for money once. It had been a fantasy for a long time and although I skirted around the edge of the sex industry for years and have also been an outspoken advocate for sex worker rights, it only happened once. I was so curious. Would it be pleasurable?...

Testimonials

Wow. Wow. Wow. Such an indescribably beautiful and powerful (and fun!!!) experience. What a precious gift you are Ruby May. Such an honor to witness you lovingly encourage and hold space for each person to embrace themselves as their own precious gift. Truly extraordinary

Justine Speed

Workshop producer

Ruby May creates profoundly safe spaces for people to explore themselves, their desires, their sexuality and the possibilities of play. Through her presence she offers permission for participants to go deeper into the truth of who they are, in all its messy marvellousness. Offering no easy answers, she creates spaces where our humanity can shine and we can open up to each other with our vulnerability, our magnificence and our complexity intact. I highly recommend Ruby to anyone who wants to become a richer, deeper, shinier version of themselves.

London Faerie

Facilitator

Ruby has such a deeply heart held way of facilitating, like the air that you don’t notice keeps you alive. She radiates and is an invisible weaver. I saw profound shifts in both myself and others that are deep and expansive.

Lotus Kruse

Coach, mentor, speaker

Ruby is an inspired and inspiring leader. In the workshops I have attended with her, I have found myself able to connect with issues that terrified me at the outset. Her gentle and thoughtful approach is clearly the result of years of study and experience. And yet she manages to hold space with a light touch and a sense of joy and humour.

Cara

Participant

The fusion of sacred sex with conscious BDSM is the new frontier of sexual and spiritual growth. Ruby and her team are the perfect caring, creative, and courageous facilitators to nurture and expand this work.

Barbara Carellas

Author of ‘Urban Tantra’ and “Ecstasy is Necessary”

All my chakras have aligned, my heart has burst open like a ripe peach. This has been a remarkably quick but deep journey through resistance, old prejudices and isolation. At 61, I have opened to more aliveness, joy and potential. 

Avalyn

Participant

As I keep going over my experiences this weekend I discover that in addition to the actual focus of the workshop, I’ve also learned a ton of healthy habits about how to interact with other people on a number of levels. From a professional level as a facilitator or teacher, to a personal level as a supporter or witness to the private level of how to communicate with an intimate partner with body, breath, voice and eyes. Life lessons. This all has immense value to me.

Martin

Participant

The level of trust and intimacy, astounded me and gave me permission to explore those parts of myself that are often hidden. Not only to explore, but to celebrate them, be nourished by them. I danced with the reality of my illusions, I found joy and laughter in my vulnerability, I transformed my shame into strength. Forever grateful
