“I never thought I would ever try anything with rope and intimacy before I met Cherie. Now I’ve just come home from my first workshop with her, and my whole tingle and feel very alive. Her gentle and image being made me feel comfortable throughout the facilitation and I have had an experience of a whole new kind of pleasure that had nothing to do with sexuality.It was for me an experience of letting myself surrender to someone else taking care of me and holds me so that my body can let go – all the way down to the cellular level. “

I LOVE YOUR WORK!

Being authentic and beautiful like that – it creates a safe space and a place for me to just be myself and feel that everything is welcome

I had an online coaching session with Cherie and her very open and inviting attitude made me feel very welcome and that it was easy for me to open myself up. It seemed to be more helpful than the purely rational therapy I did.
Cherie was loving, mindful, constructive and clear when holding space for the rope workshops I’ve been joining. The meditative, intuitive style of rope she works with calls me deeply and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to ease into that with her.

Cherie’s beautiful and calm nature helps you feel at ease immediately. I love how transparent she is in her humanness and how she’s so passionate about her work

I loved your online couples course! Firstly, getting a deep sense that most triggers are from the past and do not necessarily mean that I am unloved or being disrespected in the present. This has allowed me to dive deep into my own pain when it arises rather than waiting on my partner to solve my problems or heal me. And your communication tools, such as checking-in and giving a little bit of a warning before communicating deeper issues, has been very helpful in establishing a sense of safety around communication. It is great to know that I also can dive into triggers with the help and support of my partner, without them feeling attacked and closed off. The frameworks you present give a lot of easy tools to be used in these moments. And they are easy to remember as we see you two using them as examples in the videos. All in all, I feel more of a receptive openness from my partner to communicate anything, simply because we trust our common framework and know that “we are not each other’s enemy”.. and “being triggered doesn’t mean that the whole relationship is wrong or that the whole of the other is wrong or not lovable/loving”. That rung so true for both of us, and we strive towards remembering that in our more dizzy & anxious moments. How beautiful it is to celebrate love by honouring the very real issues underlying many of our unconscious relational strategies and disharmonies. Thank you soooo much for shining light onto very relatable topics and for pouring so much energy into guiding people towards love and harmony. It is sO worth it, and now I am believing it is sO real! And pOssible! And again, that started through knowing each of you and then witnessing your sharing together. WoW!
Thanks to the guidance of masters (I consider you hiiighly skilled people in your fields of interest) as well as through the flowering insights of experimentation.

I felt very held in the room with Cherie, who held space with a natural, calm presence that made me feel safe and ready. Ready to experience and explore what it is like to be held and hold another being in ropes. Beautiful, gentle and vulnerable with women. Elegant, creative and aesthetic – balm for my soul. First but certainly not the last time I attend one of Cherie’s workshops.

Cherie’s women’s circles are perfect examples of the ancient, natural group practices that are so clearly missing from our modern, lonely Western lifestyles and that bring us back to the essence of what it is to be human and to connect deeply with other beings. To show ourselves as we truly are, free from the masks, pretence and self-restraint required in ‘normal’ life. I always felt very safe in Cherie’s circles, she has a way of looking deeply at you with love and I felt able to share my deepest fears, desires and dreams with the group. For me, she embodies the divine feminine energy and I feel so much admiration for her and her work.
Thank you Cherie for this deep surrendering one-on-one session. I really felt heard, cared and loved trough your sensitive, secure and attentive touch and ropes.

You have a purity and authenticity that is very special.
My boyfriend and I went to a tantra-shibari one-day workshop with Cherie and rigger Red Lily. In the course of 6 hours, we were safely guided through exersices, of connection and intimacy and rope technique. Through the day, we worked our way up to having a couple of short playsessions, one focusing on soft tying, and a longer one focusing on pain and a more aggressive style. All the way we felt totally safe and supported, and Cherie and Red Lily succeeded in creating a very inspiring atmosphere, and we got a lot of ideas on how to continue our work together after the workshop. All in all a fantastic day!
