St. Pete Retreat
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 specialize in alternative lifestyle experiences, coaching, mentoring, private retreats, classes, workshops that are online and in person. Unique experiences tailored to needs.
We are 100% invested in our participants and strive to exceed expectations of what they want and need. We care about them as individuals and are honored to co-create transformation in their lives.

blog post for more of our core values and beliefs.
We are a community based on consent,
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.
EVERYONE HARMS, AND IS HARMED, sometimes. We are all victims, sometimes. We are all perpetrators, sometimes.
We release the belief in Perfection and
choose to practice love.
At SPR our goal is to return to a space of love and compassion, sooner than later, to allow repair. By letting go of perfectionism, practicing compassion and acceptance, we 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.
