Anna Marti is a vet at this intimacy and sexuality thing. She’s got an energy and vibration that literally lights up a room, and a confidence that will surely inspire you.

Anna and I journey down a winding road which starts with her conservative upbringing, the illegal abortion that liberated her into adulthood, Tantra and the ‘Unwinding’... And the truth that there is no morality, no good or bad, right or wrong.

Join us as we continue to peel back the layers to the truth, whatever that is for each of us, on Episode 20 of the Ignite Intimacy podcast!

About Anna:

Anna Marti, an intimacy coach in Portland, Oregon for the past 20 years, is passionate about supporting men and women of all ages, all orientations, alone or partnered. As an ‘erotic evangelist’, she comes to this work in the hope that more love in the world be generated, with a deep intention that it become a more pleasurable, vibrant and peaceful place to live. Along with a private practice and mentoring, she has been a featured speaker at conferences and universities, providing a bridge between esoteric ‘tantric’ teaching and western psychotherapeutic and somatic practices that are congruent with personal values.  

Teachers and influences include (but are not limited to) Daniel Odier, David Deida, Sunyata Saraswati, Bodhi Avinasha,  Joseph Kramer, and every moment alive.  Her most profound learning has been working with her teacher, Shambhavi Sarasvati, and the Jaya Kula community.

Her work and life are informed by the existential reality that is confirmed on every website and news portal – this could be my last day. Or yours. So I approach our time together with deep devotion and respect.
