With Marije Roos & Bonno Lange

Do you have a sense that there is more to Lovemaking? Are you ready to explore?

Do you struggle having sex that brings fulfillment, joy and bliss, especially after the honeymoon phase?
Do you want to enter new areas of pleasure, honesty and love together?
Do you long for your current or future relationship to be a place where sexuality contributes to growth and sustainability?
Do you long to meet yourself and each other on deeper levels?
In this course we will explore how to manifest the potential of the couple. For your love relationship to be a place where sex can be experienced as the most vibrant energy on the planet.
We will explore how Making Love can function as the base of a nourishing relationship. How to use sexual energy as a force that can contribute to love, healing and growth, in your relationship as well as in other areas of life.

In this six full Sundays online course for anyone who’s interested in the potential of the couple, practicing Making Love tools  will be specifically part of the curriculum.

About the trainers: Marije & Bonno

Why is it so difficult to keep the spark, flow, and ease that is often there at the beginning of a love relationship?

GIf you chose to be in a couple, why not invest in making it a place where two people get nourished and love can grow and deepen over time?

This course focuses on exactly that.

We will explore:

❀  Our ‘shoulds’ and ‘have to’s’ in sex and how to move into a direction of Making Love that is welcoming whatever is there.

❀  Self-connection in movement, stillness, alone, together, in dialogue and in Lovemaking.

❀  Masculine and Feminine – from differences to complementary.

❀  The art of making love: how we can cultivate love through sex.

❀  How sex can be a healing experience.

❀  Savoring our pleasurable experiences

❀  How to support your love relationship by yourself and in connection with your partner through: Dialogue, Self-connection and Making love

❀  Sensing/sensitivity/sensuality – pleasure and pain as a source for creation.

❀  Celebration and Appreciation – The fuel for LOVE & LIFE

❀  Moving from focussing on ‘doing’ in sex to focussing on ‘being’, in sex

❀  and more

What to expect

Choice! Nothing in this course is obligatory. The focus is on self-connection, getting to know your longings, your YES and your NO.

A safe space to share and be held in all that arises.

Guided, silent and active body and mind practices, to grow self-connection and sensuality/sensitivity.

Group time where we can share our mournings and celebrations to learn from each other and create community connection to support the couple.

Extra support

Assistants: We will have assistants accompanying us during this course. They’ve already completed the Basic, Intermediate, Advanced and Year Courses with us and some are engaged in their steps toward teaching/sharing NVC.


We welcome:
– Couples
– Individuals who are in a relationship but whose partner is not joining
– Individuals who are not currently in a relationship but are interested in the themes of intimacy and sexuality.

This course is primarily designed for those who identify as heterosexual. This decision is because Bonno and Marije teach from personal experiences, which may influence certain aspects of the content. We regret any exclusion that this may cause, as we strive to be fully inclusive and welcoming to everyone. However, if you’re still interested after hearing this, you are more than welcome to engage in dialogue with us.
