Michael Pooley/Dharma Bodhi's teachings and private coaching sessions embody the tantric approach to ecstatic living, conscious loving, sexual healing, and sacred sexuality. His work integrates a lifetime of study and exploration of tantra, yoga, meditation, psychology, breath and energy work, bodywork, music, movement, self discovery, and the creative process. His teachings and insights reflect his passion for and experience with applying tantric principles in the bedroom, in the living room, in the board room, and in everyday life.

Background & Expertise
In the past decade, Michael has developed a sterling reputation for integrity, wisdom, and compassion as a tantra teacher as well as in his coaching and counseling sessions with individuals and couples.
