Curator & Host

Anita Teresa Boeninger
Founder of the Sex & Medicine Summit

Message from the Founder

I grew up in an atmosphere of sexual trauma. I had cousins who used to sleep with a knife under their pillow for fear of being raped at night by their caregiver. I watched close friends and relatives go through rape & sexual abuse at a young age. And for years, I struggled with a phobia of being raped, an intense fear of men, and chronic paralyzing shyness throughout my adolescence.

I think that’s at the root of why I’m so passionate about the Sex & Medicine Summit — because we are going beyond a pathology model to include narratives of empowerment; we’re highlighting tools for therapists and clinicians that could transform the landscape of medicine and health for generations to come.

It might just change yours. — Are you ready for what’s next?

The Healing Power of Sacred Spot Massage

Caroline Muir
Author of “Tantra Goddess: A Memoir of Sexual Awakening”

more about Caroline Muir...
Caroline Muir’s work has been instrumental in inspiring the modern tantra movement in America. She is celebrated as a Tantra Yoga educator, best-selling author, and the first person to introduce sexual healing practices for women, by women, (in heterosexual or same-sex partnerships). Caroline provides her transformational work to both women and couples.Author of two best-selling books, Tantra Goddess, A Memoir of Sexual Awakening and Tantra, The Art of Conscious Loving (co-authored with Charles Muir) as well as co-producer of the DVD Secrets of Female Sexual Ecstasy, Caroline founded the Divine Feminine Institute for Men and Women in 2004. Inspired by her work with Sacred Spot massage, she uncovered the missing piece in sexual healing: the Practice of AH.

AH is a full spectrum, feminine-wisdom approach to sexual healing for women and men. AH invites us to elevate out of our animal nature and into lovers who regard and revere the body as a home for the spirit.

Caroline draws on her expertise as a practitioner of the tantric arts and 25 years as a teacher of Tantra Yoga. Her books and teachings have impacted over thirty-five thousand students, both singles and couples, who appreciate her depth, her integrity and the warmth she brings to this sensitive and ancient subject.

Caroline’s work has been featured in many publications, such as The Wall Street Journal, Yoga Journal, PlayGirl, Elle, Glamour, Esquire, Healthy Living, Healing Lifestyles & Spas, and many others.


Caroline writes:

“The concept and finally the practice of sexual awakening and healing captured me in the early ’80′s during a yoga retreat. I learned about energy centers and my subtle body, along with a deep understanding of how to care for my physical body outside the box of traditional medicine. I came to understand first-hand that sexual energy, when directed upward toward the brain, awakens consciousness.

All of this led me to a career as a teacher of Tantra Yoga; being filmed by the Masters and Johnson Institute; appearing in numerous articles from the Wall Street Journal to Playgirl; and developing my work based on my belief that loving and being loved transforms the human experience.”
