David Presti, the science of the mind-body connection
Jay Michaelson, Kabbalah and erotics of the infinite
Tantra: Love: Orgasm, a weekend retreat
We have two great lecturers this week. On Tuesday, David Presti, a professor of neurobiology at UC Berkeley, will speak about the science of the mind-body connection. On Thursday, author and editor Jay Michaelson will address sexuality and the Jewish mystical tradition of the Kabbalah.

Sex, biology and religion--all in one week. It could only happen at OneTaste.

In addition, we are preparing for a weekend retreat that promises to rock the worlds of people who attend. Release old traumas and discover the bliss of life with Tantra: Love: Orgasm, a two-and-a-half day residential immersion program.

Hope to see you soon,
