Jan Day - Originator of Meetings Without Masks
The themes of sexual healing, self-acceptance, forgiveness and loving kindness are central to Jan's life and work. She is held in high regard by the many people who have come to know her through her guidance in both workshops and coaching. She brings to her teaching deep understanding and a warm-hearted appreciation for people's need to find and learn to trust their own unique journeys into being. "I have been divorced and married. I have known the darkness of depression, the despair of great loss and the joy of finding my way home again. Above all, I believe in the basic goodness of life and of people. Sexual healing, self-acceptance, forgiveness and the all-embracing life-acceptance of tantra have been and continue to be powerful tools in my life."

Nicola is a relationship and intimacy therapist and teacher. She began learning about love and relationships with Jan in 2011 and this journey led her to escape her corporate job and become a relationship expert. She now runs successful therapy practices in London and Hertfordshire for couples and individuals. Her mission is to help men and women create, repair and deepen their intimate relationships. Nicola says - When I first began learning about relationships with Jan I had very little idea about how to be relational. I was wrapped up in my own fears, judgments, prejudices and doubts. As I experimented with dating and being more conscious in my relationship choices, I learned to see the unique differences and beautiful qualities in others and to how to be more present. I also found greater self-acceptance. I now love to help others to find more self-esteem, confidence and joy in all their relationships.

Ed Rooke passion is helping people to reconnect with lost parts of their soul nature, so that they can open to the freedom and power of being truly themselves. His own healing journey was catalysed 15 years ago when a transformation of his own emotional blocks allowed him to recover from a chronic illness. Not only did his health return, but he found life more connected and richer than it had been before his illness. Experiencing this shift has led Ed to help others heal their emotional wounds, and to reconnect with their natural vitality. After completing a doctorate in Psychology, Ed trained in Hypnotherapy, Generative Coaching Shadow Work and Voice Dialogue. Ed Rookes therapeutic work includes a range of workshops for men, based on the Jungian Archetypes, and a unique style of coaching, helping people to transform their unconscious blocks around relationship and intimacy. Ed has spent many years assisting and training with Jan Day. He is now part of the -School of Being- faculty and leads several Living Tantra workshops.
