"Those 4 days changed my life and I found myself. I finally found truly Irina, that little girl. I found her needs, her fears, her desires, dreams and passion. I found this little QUEEN… inside me.
I REALIZED how strong and soft I can be at the same time. And this is an amazing feeling for me.
I really need to thank Harrison and Alisa for their work, they are doing life changing things!"
- Irina (@irina.life.is.good)
"Thank You Alisa and Harrison for letting me experience this extraordinary life changing retreat.
Stepping out of my comfort zone was uncomfortable at the beginning, but it was definitely worth it!
Would not have wanted to miss one minute. Looking forward to the next retreat."
I was a little bit afraid, because I didn't know what was going to happen. Harrison and Alisa provided so much safety that it really feels that I could be myself!
I made a shift in how I love my body. It used to be just a body and I hated it. When I looked in the mirror this morning, it was for the first time in my life that I acutally liked what I saw and I loved my body.
I would SO do it again.
I still feel the positive effects. I feel lighter, more balanced and better in tune with my self .
It is such an act of self love to do the retreat!

"It’s not that life is ever perfect. It’s that you get to a point where you receive so much from any possible scenario life throws at you, that as long as you’re living, it seems like life is perfect. And then you can just surrender to life, because you know it will all be perfect anyway."
- Harrison Yum
Who are the Yum's?
Harrison & Alisa Yum met in the middle of their tantric journeys at a tantra retreat in Rome.
They continued their tantric work together, exploring many more lineages of tantra before feeling like they came to a peak in their journey and felt a strong sign that their next step was to share this medicine with others.
Since then Harrison & Alisa Yum have spent more than 6000 hours in tantric spaces as participants, assistants and facilitators. Together they have hosted 60 retreats and workshops as founders of the Yum School transforming the lives of thousands of participants.

Tantra is special in its beliefs that spiritual liberation is not attained through meticulous and dogmatic renunciation of the world and our human needs. The practices aim at expanding awareness and growing energy.
These two aspects represent the two basic forces in the world, often called Shiva & Shakti, Yin & Yang or Divine Masculine & Feminine. Both are needed in order to attain spiritual liberation. Tantra aims to unify the two aspects into one sacred union through rituals, embodiment work, meditations, breath work and partner exercises. In these practices you will learn to:
Release stuck emotions and traumas from your body,
discover and release patterns that no longer serve you,
heal your relationships with your family, friends and partners,
release shame around your body and sexuality,
embody and unite the divine masculine and feminine energies inside you,
channel your kundalini energy to create powerful manifestation magic,
find your dharma and live in alignment.
What is Life Force?
Tantra is the most ancient, current system of maximizing the life force energy of your body through self-understanding. Neo-Tantra is the practice of applying this ancient system to modern day life. Life force energy gives you phenomenal orgasms and makes up our emotions like love, bliss, drive, freedom, innerpower, happiness. The more life force you have the greater level you can experience all of those emotions. 5 main drivers of life force energy in Tantra are:
Keeping your energy in motion (moving your emotions through you).
