I’m so excited about this conversation I had with my dear friend Janet who I’ve known for almost 20 years. She works with individuals and couples in the area of sexuality and relationship. Janet leads the Making Love Retreat workshops where couples focus on their mindful connection through sexuality. Janet also describes the potential of suppressed emotions and trauma being brought up, released, and healed through the conscious way of lovemaking rather than having sex in a conventional way.

About this week’s guest
Janet McGeever has been a psychotherapist for almost 25 years, specializing in the field of love, sex, and intimacy, particularly in relation to midlife. She co-wrote the book, Tantric Sex and Menopause – Practices for Spiritual and Sexual Renewal with Conscious Sexuality Teacher Diana Richardson. Janet was a TEDx speaker in Noosa, Australia in 2013. She has been teaching The Making Love Retreat, a retreat founded by Diana and Michael Richardson, in Australia since 2012.
Her extensive clinical experience with couples and women in relation to sexual intimacy, combined with her years of teaching retreats, has led her to provide a sensitive, heart-centered, somatically focused approach to Grief and Trauma, inherent in the subject of sexuality. Her by-line is Make Love a Priority, and love is at the foundation of all her work. She believes that developing an open-hearted connection and creating an environment of safety within a relationship, can lead naturally to sexual intimacy and that safe, loving sexual intimacy is a possible and very viable pathway to healing trauma if one is open to it.
Janet lives in beautiful Noosa, Queensland, Australia.
