Current Events

Where in your everyday life do you have the time and space to deeply connect to yourself, exploring questions, desires, interests and issues around your self, sex and intimacy?

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

Where can you experiment with new steps towards passion, vulnerability and power; or inquire about Eros as a phenomenon beyond sexuality – the expression of life and spirit in you, others and the world around you?

Authentic Eros provides such a space.

Merilyn Keskula and Ruby May warmly invite you to a weekend of diving deep into the wisdom of the Feminine. An intimate exploration of her gifts and perspectives and their potential for inspiring every aspect of our lives, from the alignment and flow in our creativity, to our personal self-care, to our leadership and the way we show up in the world…

Truth Bites

Happiness is not an inside job

I often wish I had never been exposed to ‘spiritual’ literature and philosophies. Especially the maxim ‘happiness is an inside job’. Sure, there is truth in that. But our ‘spirituality’ emanates from the paradigm we are embedded...

I am my own permission-granter

When combined with our heart and our awareness we can use our sexuality for its highest purpose: embracing, feeling deeply connected to and riding the very crest of life’s creative expression through us. Allowing our lust for and communion with life. But how to...

The world doesn’t need more power

Women who say yes to themselves as sovereign, sexual beings are powerful creatures. And that is a scary thing for us in a world with a paradigm of scarcity and ‘power over’, in which someone having power, generally means it’s both taken away from...

Empathy is my super power

The deeper I go into my menstrual cycle awareness, the more I sense that those last few days before bleeding are such an important and precious time for feeling. Whether it’s emotions that I’ve managed to gloss over or suppress the month before, or whether...

Eros & Earth

What if you paused for a moment… and remembered the soft animal of your body as an extension of the earth. What if you took a breath and sensed your capacity for the exquisite: the simple, sensual communing with life. Is there a pleasure in belonging to her? Of...

Why befriend our sexuality?

  Why bother making friends with our sexuality? Why lift the lid on pandoras box when it can make us feel such discomfort or fear? Perhaps we feel like we’d rather keep the lid on: after all it’s only sex. My extensive personal enquiry around...


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

I’ve been in group workshops since the early seventies…. I’ve heard it all from a myriad of angles and viewpoints.  It all comes down to purity of intention and holding the highest regard for each persons evolution. This coupled with insight, intuition and the courage to speak the truth and the tough love that catalyzes a group to reach their highest purpose. You were impeccable in your hearts delivery. And the love from which it came was palpable to one versed in decades of similar processes. Thank you for your courage and your trust to follow your interests and be guided by your intuition.  I feel privileged to have been able to participate in one of your workshops. You have a gift and you are such a treat.   Henry

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


Ruby is just the most wonderful facilitator you could hope for; her jubilant energy and sincere gentle nature, in combination with a deep love for exploring authentic connection makes for such a beautiful space. Ruby’s workshop showed me how to delve into the deepest layers of myself, to the juicy core of how I truly connect to my own desire – and that this is the source of real power. This workshop is not just ‘another workshop’ ….This is a laboratory for a new way of living; of metabolising systems and paradigms, liberating us from culture’s imagined spectrum of what it means to be female. This work is about creating a new way of connecting, and finding pure joy in simply being – realising our full potential as female people, and just what healing magic we can conjure with this power.  I met my true self, surrendered sweetly and was finally able to say: “you are powerful and beautiful, just as you are. You no longer need to add anything.” Melissa


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


I cannot even describe how I feel after this workshop. every part of me feels so alive. everything is vibrating and sparkling, full of strange, dangerous, lovely promises – Luisa Louisa


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


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 Sido


I don’t think I’ve ever participated in a workshop that was so gentle and subtle as Ruby May’s. The workshop was beautiful as it was, with beautiful exercises, but the process was so much deeper than just the experiences each moment. In those moments, I learned to express myself much clearer. To be brave and feel into what I want or desire. And express that. And again. And again. I realise that expressing my desires is an act of pure self-love. That not speaking up is abandoning myself, each time again. I have the full right, power but also the responsibility to speak up. My desires as much as my boundaries. I’m looking forward to integrating these new insights and imprints into my life! Wilrieke
