St. Pete Retreat
Our Mission and Vision
The St. Pete Retreat is an urban retreat space created for people to explore their humanness, sexuality, spirituality.
Through offering classes, private sessions, workshops and events we aim to create a community where people feel empowered to live a lifestyle in alignment with their own personal values and continue to explore, with grace and ease, what those values are as they move through life.
We actively create community by providing an inclusive space for all people (over 18 years old), regardless of their race, culture, religious background, socio-economic status, gender identity, gender expression, sexual preferences and relationship status. Through practicing acceptance, curiosity, compassion,
courage and returning to love.
We are a community based on love and connection. We believe that when we are in relationships with others, It is not a matter of if trust is broken, it is a matter of when. We are all human beings and we understand that we all make mistakes.
We believe in giving people the opportunity to make amends and participate in restorative justice.
EVERYONE HARMS, AND IS HARMED, sometimes. We are all victims, sometimes. We are all perpetrators, sometimes.
At SPR our goal is to allow repair. By letting go of perfectionism and accepting this fact, we will acknowledge impact and move through the process of repair into restored relationships and community.
We aim to be non-idealized leaders, who can acknowledge harm and restore wholeness to our communities and ourselves.
We believe in order to fully experience pleasure, connection, intimacy and fulfillment we need to be present and conscious.
We do this by creating an environment for self exploration, acceptance and celebration. Secondly by creating community and being of service to others.
We believe orgasmic energy is our life force energy. It connects us to the divine as well as makes us human.
We know and believe that pleasure is our divine birthright. Our bodies are wired for pleasure. Sexual satisfaction and fulfillment is required for overall optimal life satisfaction.
Our hope is that through SPR we can contribute to a world where
there is no stigma of sexuality, spirituality and our lifestyle choices
. Where we can all speak into our needs, desires and boundaries with confidence, grace and ease
. We can make amends for wrongs done and restore wholeness to community and self.

Liz Nygaard is a Self Pleasure Practitioner, Empowerment Coach, Embodied Photographer, and mystic, and has been in the field of teaching self-development and nervous system regulation for 3 years. She started with working for a non-profit helping children and their families build a new, healthy way of relating to one another, then moved into the intimacy realm as a Self Pleasure Practitioner. Liz has been doing photography for about 5 years and found that her skills as a healer compliment the experience of a photoshoot - creating a powerful, transformational experience. Liz’s message: the best way to relate to the world around you is by developing a strong intimacy within. By coming back to the body and having a healthy relationship to the light and dark parts of ourselves, we can create the life we desire and feel empowered and authentic. When we create the life we desire, it inspires a ripple effect to the rest of the world. Liz loves getting people out of their comfort zones in the name of expansion and empowerment.
