Meet the Woman

Nathalie Dewalhens was born in Belgium in the swinging sixties but left her tiny country in 2003 when she decided to quit the rat race and thus her job in the music industry. She first lived on an island in the Mediterranean before starting to settle in the shadow of the Cévennes mountains. In 2012 she moved to Berlin (Germany) where her two children still live and thrive. Ten years later she thought it was time to settle in Andalucia, Spain. 

She’s a Vermilion Morning Social Host, organised online and in real life Sensual Salons (with Alison Pilling) and Neo Tantric Talks and last but not least: she’s a licensed Jamie Catto Bring It Insanely Gifted teacher .

She truly believes the world would be a more compassionate place if there was more sensuality in the world. 

Highly influenced by the Stoics, Trungpa Rinpoche, Henry Miller, Lou Salomé, Pema Chodron, Nietzsche, Esther Perel, Darwin, Frans de Waal amongst others,  which partly explains her no woo woo  approach and some elements of crazy wisdom. She’s a vegan sentientist and believes in the values of EffectiveAltruïsm. She likes flamenco, tango and tequila, mango and Pablo Neruda. Not necessarily in that order.



As a writer I’m particularly interested in condition humaine and thus in the childhood traumas that partially shape who we become and behave as an adult. 

As an intimacy coach I want to help people to connect authentically with themselves and the world.  

I like to take them on a journey to a place where they feel safer and closer to their core.  

Books & Poetry

The 500 Hidden Secrets of Berlin

The 500 Hidden Secrets of Berlin is the perfect book for those who wish to discover the city, but avoid all the usual tourist haunts, as well as for residents who are keen to track down the city's best-kept secrets.

Your Body, My Poem

“Your body, my poem” came out of the visceral need of Machig to bring some conscious kinky sexuality in contemporary poetry.

Neo Tantric Talks on Thursdays

During the dark winter months, Nathalie will regularly host a group of curious souls to gather together safely around the fire of her house (exact address will be send out to the participants) to talk about things that warm their hearts.

Every evening will have a theme and there will be guest lectures you really don’t want to miss.

Our very first talk happened on the 3rd of November and was all about *sensuality* in the broad sense of the word.

The second talk will be around vulnerability. What is it for you? How does it show? Does it show at all? Do you think it’s a weakness or a strength?

Max 9 participants so please reserve your place by being a ticket here:


Price 12 Euro/night: drinks and veggie tapas are included.

Un abrazo,
