Meet the Woman

Nathalie Dewalhens was born in Belgium in the swinging sixties but left her tiny country in 2003 when she choose to step away from  the rat race and thus her role 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 relocated to Berlin. A decade later, she felt it was the opportune moment to establish herself in Andalucia, Spain, while her now-adult children persisted in their global wanderings.

Nathalie is not only a certified sex counselor but also a Vermilion Morning Social Host. She orchestrates both online and in-person  Sensual Salons (with Alison Pilling)   and Poetry Brothels,  different workshops and talks along with Neo Tantric Winter Talks at her place. Additionally,  she’s a licensed Jamie Catto Bring It Insanely Gifted teacher .

Her conviction that the world could benefit from more sensuality underscores her work.  

Influenced by the teachings of Stoics, Trungpa Rinpoche, Henry Miller, Lou Salomé, Pema Chodron, Nietzsche, Esther Perel, Darwin, Frans de Waal, and others, Nathalie brings a grounded, non-woo-woo approach infused with elements of crazy wisdom. She’s a vegan sentientist and believes in the values of EffectiveAltruïsm. She likes flamenco, techno, tango and tequila, mango and the poetry of 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 facilitator 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.  

As a performer, I want to touch people’s souls.

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.

Winter Talks on Thursdays

During the dark winter months, Nathalie regularly hosts 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.

Max 9 participants so please reserve your place by reserving your place via whatsapp: +34601655643. 

Price 15 Euro/night.

Un abrazo,

Nathalie

Counseling: Online and in real life 

Navigating challenges in your intimate life? Feeling a shift in your sexual vitality or curious about exploring different aspects of pleasure? Wondering about the nuances of female pleasure, including topics like female ejaculation? Managing changes in libido due to (peri) menopause?

Or maybe you’re in the process of opening up your marriage and find yourself facing uncertainties, or if you’re contemplating such a step and want support, I’m here to assist you. Perhaps you’re intrigued by the idea of expanding beyond conventional notions of ‘normal’ sexual experiences.

It’s completely normal to long for intimacy, but acknowledging and addressing these desires can be challenging due to societal conditioning and shame.

Whatever your intimate concerns may be, be assured that solutions exist.

Drawing on my background as a certified sex counselor, complemented by more than a decade of experience in neo-tantric practices, I incorporate insights from polyvagal theory, attachment styles, authentic relating, the wheel of consent, breathwork, embodiment, various relationship styles, and conscious kink.

Let’s embark on a journey together to explore and address the complexities of intimacy. Your curiosity is valid, and your concerns are deserving of attention.
