Robert E. Wagner, Founder & Director of Sacred Desire

Robert is an Advanced Certified Tantra Educator through the Source School of Tantra. His background in spiritual studies, outdoor wilderness retreats and relationship workshops uniquely qualifies him to assist people in awakening to their own sexuality.

Spiritually, Robert began his path with Transcendental Meditation, which he learned at the age of 16. He lived and studied at the heart of a prominent spiritual community for many years, where he immersed himself in deep silence and examined the fundamental principles of nature and human growth through study of the Science of Creative Intelligence.

In addition, Robert is an experienced vision quest guide, offering wilderness rites of passage that provide participants a profound opportunity for personal transformation. READ MORE

Renee Jeffus, Tantric Educator
& Workshop Facilitator of Sacred Desire

Renee is an experienced teacher of Tantric Dance and leader of Ecstatic Embodiment workshops and Women’s Sacred Sexuality Circles. Her explorations into how Spirit moves and expresses itself through the body have enabled many people to reconnect with the healing power, grace and passion present within as Divine energy.

After a successful career in modeling – Renee became well recognized as the face of Cover Girl cosmetics for several years – she began a healing journey into the many manifestations of the sacred masculine and feminine. Since 2003, she has taught Tantric Dance, focusing on locating the transcendent where Spirit and Body unite in present-moment ecstasy ­– the essence of Tantra.

Renee’s Ecstatic Embodiment workshops awaken and ground embodied Spirit through tools including conscious movement, Tantric dance, healing touch, energetics, chakra exploration, and connected breathwork. In her Women’s Sacred Sexuality Circles, participants discover how to tap into the ecstasy that is the body’s natural state, enjoying the spontaneous pleasure and celebration elicited from “spiritually infused play.” She also offers Tantric Dance Prayer Transmissions in the spirit of the ancient Priestesses.

Renee lives in Ashland, Oregon and is a devoted mother of three amazing children, Kianna, Bodhi and Kahyu, who are her greatest teachers.

Well versed in the dance of God and Goddess, Renee brings a strong and compassionate feminine presence to complement Robert’s masculine energy. Her spiritual depth is matched by her passion for creating a safe container for clients and course participants so that they may fully surrender to the experience of sacred love. Her deepest wish is that couples will experience the soul-touching intimacy, deep honoring, and immense pleasure that flow from the sacred dance of lover and beloved.

Please note: Renee is available for intimacy coaching by phone or in person. However, all sessions are done fully clothed with no direct sexual contact.
