When I told you that you’ve changed my life, I sincerely meant it. You have shown me a way to find my way back to my authentic self. She was there all this time, hiding, fearing judgment and rejection. When you told me I would be a part of a supportive community I simply could not believe it. Rather I could not fathom that it could be true for me. Thank God, I was dead wrong. BttB has quieted my restlessness and calmed my fragmented heart. It has grown me in very uncomfortable AND important ways. Thank you for helping me become the person I was meant to be. I am so very grateful.


Up until very recently, hands-on sexual healing has been cloaked in secrecy, shame, and misunderstanding. But a bold new group of courageous pioneers such as Pamela Madsen is leading the way toward a deeper, richer understanding of women’s sexual pleasure as a force for health and healing that positively affects all areas of their lives. The new feminism includes embracing our erotic power, and hands on sexual healing in the right setting can be a very effective way to accomplish this.

Dearest Pamela, You have given me a gift that is beyond description. The work you do and the care and love that you inject into your profound purpose, has completely transformed my life. You infused hope into parts of me where I wasn’t sure hope could still exist.I am a different person from when I first met you, THANK GOD, and thank YOU for your boldness, bravery, and fearless leadership that is making this world a better place. Love you so much

Pamela Madsen is an erotic genius who has created a six-day communal immersion process where women learn to integrate sexual arousal into all parts of their bodies and lives. Along with her extraordinary team; through group and solo practices and receiving the option of complimentary daily sensuous bodywork, participants unleash a remarkable state of sustained sexual arousal. And then are coached in ways to use that state. Back to The Body is the Master Class of my dreams. I wish I had a vulva.

Joseph Kramer, Ph.D. Co-creator of Sexological Bodywork and the Body Electric School

I have attended Pamela’s Back to the Body retreats. She profoundly understands, supports and creates space for women to be their own healers and self-awakeners. The resources, body workers, rituals, education, and beautiful environment of her retreats... combined with her authentic love for women is the magical recipe that truly works. She knows instinctively when a participant needs her own space or ritual to heal and she honors that. She doesn’t subscribe to any scripts nor does she force feed anything to the women. She knows when and how to step in and provide tools/support to help a woman find her way.

Pamela’s belief and trust in a woman’s own ability to heal and empower herself is the foundation from which all her work is built.


My experience at Back to the Body taught me lessons that went way beyond the bedroom and all the way to the boardroom. I found myself feeling so naturally confident in myself that I have trouble recognizing the woman I used to be.


I always thought that something was wrong with me. All these women talking about all these fabulous experiences with sexuality. I always felt left out of the conversation. Well, that is over and I am ready for more!


I felt so seen, loved, looking after and held, grounded, tender and fierce all at the same time. I am always in awe of how much I allow myself to be more me when I’m given space to breathe and move.


Thank you for the gift of this exquisite Portal weekend. Your work is phenomenal. I’m truly grateful to have had this taste. My heartfelt thanks to your team.
