I am Barbara Carrellas and I love what I do! I am an author, sex educator, university lecturer, workshop facilitator, sex/life coach, motivational speaker and theater artist. My new book, Ecstasy is Necessary: A Practical Guide to Sex, Relationships and Oh So Much More  was just published by Hay House. My other books are Urban Tantra: Sacred Sex for the Twenty-First Century and Luxurious Loving: Tantric Inspirations for Passion and Pleasure.

I founded Urban Tantra® as a way of bringing people together to explore the vast range of sexual, spiritual and emotional possibilities open to all of us. Most of us have been taught to compartmentalize our lives—to keep our work, spiritual and erotic lives as separate as possible—in order to keep the peace and not offend anyone. I advocate exactly the opposite approach. When our erotic energy is aligned with our spiritual purpose, it releases our creativity and manifests in prosperity and happiness in all areas of life, including fulfilling relationships with other people.

I offer workshops, lectures, keynotes, Sex/Life Coaching and special events to individuals, conferences, businesses, and schools. I hope that this web site will offer you the opportunity to get to know me and my work a little better and will encourage you to join me for a life-changing adventure in the infinite realms of sex and spirit.
