I really want to express that last night was very much at the edges of my comfort zone at times but perfectly within it at others. It was alternately challenging and triggering and beautifully intimate and absolutely perfect. I felt so safe to explore myself, my boundaries, and others’ in the amazing space we created together. Thank you thank you THANK YOU.

Temple in the Trees is a unique container for growth and healing.  They will support you wherever you are in your journey.  They  provide a space and programs that encourage you to explore and the safety and guidance to engage and push past your comfort zone.  My favorite part has been the opportunities to explore how to hold your boundaries and to feel all the feelings involved in that.   You feel like they are in it with you, not lecturing at you, as topics and experiences are explored.

Temple in the Trees is a delightfully safe haven for exploration and connection, and the exploration OF connection. Michael and Lara deftly lead us through a series of exercises designed to put us more in touch with ourselves and others as we explore our own boundaries and challenge ourselves to come right to our edges with confidence and curiosity. I cannot recommend this space and these facilitators more fervently. I often imagine what the world at large could be like if only everyone would take the time to walk this path with themselves and their fellow humans.

Heart and safety are at the core of engaging with Temple in the Trees. I took a Tantra series course that opened me up to a journey through personal discomfort, release, acceptance, and self love. I felt safe to get naked and boast as one assignment asked us to do, if we felt like playing. To be raw and present in your sexuality, I can think of no safer space nor with people that care for you any deeper.

I have to say I feel a huge energy shift within my self from our circle. Everyone had some little part of their share that made a huge impact on me.

“5,000 days ago Ryan & I made a vow to each other to love, to want the very best, strongest, versions of ourselves to blossom! We vowed to be truly ourselves. I don’t even recognize the people we were then. This morning realizing what today was and looking to the year ahead, with twin girls coming this summer, moving to a house, jobs we both love and truly becoming free, I want to thank Lara Blackin and Michael Blackin for being our true friends and inspiration. We have grown more these last two years in our marriage and perspective from their guidance.”

Last Night was delicious. Easy. Safe. Grace. Awakening. Exciting. Satisfying. Tickling. I could go on. Thank you both for this. It was wonderful.

This was my third time attending interfusion and each year keeps getting better and better. A huge thanks to the instructors of both intimate massage classes (Understanding Intimate Massage and Sensual Massage for Intimate Couples). I shared such beautiful energy with others and made some incredibly special connections.

The depth of love and presence that Lara holds with gentle ease and grace is so powerful, in the most delicate possible and intimate way. She guided me through a soundful and somatic deep dive within myself that allowed me to unlock doorways of discovery into my soul purpose and inner knowing, my own gifts and strengths. With clarity, wisdom, and truly insightful mirroring, she was able to help me bring to the surface limiting beliefs and shamanically tap into my own inner landscape in a way that allowed me to release those limitations and harness my OWN clarity and wisdom. I walked away from each session feeling empowered and confident and eager to drop into the home play she provided to deepen me in my self-journey. If you’re thinking of working with her, do it. Thank you so much, Lara.
