Our Team

Dan Powers

Founder and Executive Director

At the age of 40, Dan was introduced to the Western version of the tantric arts. That introduction began his quest for knowledge about all things related to a more intimate expression of sex and sexuality. Being an engineer, he sought to learn more grounded approaches to sexuality and gain an understanding of the inner workings from the perspective of how our bodies function.

After years of study, the result of his quest is a comprehensive knowledge about sex, sexuality and relating from a wide variety of disciplines and traditions. He shares his knowledge with private clients and the wider community as a sex educator and consultant. He encourages people to gain their own experience and knowledge so they can decide what works best for them and their relationships. He has made it a personal mission to educate people about the healing aspects and energies of human sexuality in a safe and inviting environment. Dan brought his teaching to an international audience and is a sought after speaker, educator, sex and relationship consultant.

Dan is a Certified Tantra Educator through the Source School of Tantra.  In addition, he has completed levels 1-4 of Chuluaqui Quodoushka Spiritual Sexuality training, has studied Taoist sexual healing practices, has attended The Body Electric School, and has become versed in the somatic healing practices taught by Lafayette Morehouse, Orgasmic Providers and OneTaste.

Dan see private clients as a sex and relationship consultant through SensualU. For more information or to schedule a private consult, contact him at dan@sensualu.com.

Elizabeth made the choice to no longer practice psychotherapy when she moved to Colorado, and is not licensed to practice psychotherapy here. However, Elizabeth strongly believes that individuals or couples who need a psychotherapist’s assistance should contact a licensed professional. To that end, Elizabeth maintains a network of referrals and is happy to provide a recommendation upon request.
