And… relationships can choke the life out of us.

Whether we’re open or monogamous, we can meet relationship burn out. Be caught in endless conflict cycles and drama. Re-traumatise ourselves through repeating patterns. Feel stuckness and boredom. Lose the magic and get caught in the mundane. Feel distant and lose touch with our true self. Follow ‘the’ script. Let life’s to-do lists swamp the magic.

This course is your toolkit for bringing the sacred into your relating.

In this course, we take you behind the scenes of our 18 year open relationship to share the practical lessons, wisdom and tools we’ve learned along the way. We’re still deeply in love after nearly two decades together and traversed a lot of relationship territory: painful pits and exquisite peaks and everything in between. We know our honest and vulnerable sharings will help you to avoid these same pits (or get out of them much faster) and expand in every moment of the journey.

As teachers of sacred relating and mysticism for over 30 years, Dawn and Pele share the emotional, spiritual, sexual, relational tools you need to elevate and deepen the quality of your relating. Because it’s not about what kind of relationship you’re in — single, monogamous or non-monogamous — it’s about the quality of your relating that matters.

With a unique blend of Shamanism, Kabbalah, Tantra, and science, combined with deep insights, clear communication, and practical tools, see what course explores below…

“Ohad Pele and Dawn have a unique blend of shamanism, science and Tantra combined with deep insights and clear communication. Their teachings helped me find the sacred marriage of feminine and masculine in myself which has allowed me to finally enter into a healthy, fulfilling and ever-growing relationship with my partner. I’ve also become more aware of my needs and unhealthy patterns that keep me from achieving simple, everyday joy. I’m now able to notice beauty in the smallest incidents of life. Deep thanks and gratitude."

"The main insight I've had is to look inside myself and ask: "What do I need in this relationship? What will make it good for me?" and to create healthy boundaries according to that. I learned to put my own boundaries, and not in a way that limits the other. When I talked to my partner about my needs, every boundary I asked for was received as "easy". Since then, we have boundaries that can change according to our mutual consent."

— T.W., Pardes Hanna, Israel

"Without Ohad and Dawn's guidance and support we wouldn't have made it through some very difficult times in our relationship. Their superpower is the practical elimination of drama and a powerful commitment to love. If you're on the fence of working with Ohad and Dawn, they're worth every penny and it's a total no-brainer. We are now ENGAGED and their contribution made the difference!"
