Testimonials

Kelley has arrived from several after lives.  An old wise sage, embodiment of a beautiful warrior priestess goddess.  Kelley is radiating warmth, luminosity, compassion, passion, abundance, kindness, and spirituality.  Unconditional love was permeating throughout the entire space.

K.R. San Francisco CA

The mark of an incredible session is when you feel still engulfed by the experience long after you left.  Kelley looks and acts like a true goddess. There is something magical about her treatment—my mind turned to mush and random thoughts came and went.  She works pretty deep and knows how to find troubled spots.  I was so incredibly in peace when I got off the table.

D.G. San Francisco CA

From the moment Kelley opens the door and says hello, you will be greeted with perhaps the warmest and most radiant eyes you have ever seen.  She is a goddess in the deepest sense: her energy, voice, touch and presence, radiate divine feminine love that is deeply relaxing and healing.  You will absolutely feel supported in your exploration of pleasure as it is awakened in your body, and then be guided to feel the expansion of that pleasure to levels you’ve never experienced before.  Yes, she is absolutely stunning and sensual, but her physical beauty feels more like a gateway to an inspiring radiance, which flows through her, and draws you into taking a deeply blissful journey and experience.  On a practical level she is wonderfully adept at helping you leave the mental world of stress, bringing your full attention to your body through her touch, and tap you into greater waves of delight that will move through you.  By the end of your session, you will feel complete, body oozing with peace and joy, and you will feel ready to take this renewed expansive energy of your truest self, out into the world to be shared with others.  Consider yourself fortunate if you ever get the opportunity to work with her, you will never forget it!

A. Flores San Francisco CA

It’s common in the world of Trantra to refer to women practitioners as ‘goddesses’.  With Kelley that is not just a figure of speech.  I recently saw her for the 3rd time, and the impression I came away with after my first 2 sessions hasn’t changed.  In fact, I’m more convinced than ever, Kelley is an actually goddess who has come to earth.  I don’t why she is here walking among us, but I do know that I am thankful.  I’m not sure that she wants us to know that she’s actually a Divine Being, but it’s obvious to me.  Her human form is spectacularly beautiful and her touch is sublime, but it’s her eyes that give away the secret.  When I look into them I feel like I’m drowning in a pool of compassion, wisdom, and love.  Words cannot express what a session with Jasmyn is like, except to say it’s divine bliss.

“Kelley is one of the most embodied dancers I have known. She is also kind and wise. Her holistic approach to teaching dance is inspiring. She gives you the tools to become a conscious embodied dancer by incorporating meditation, yoga, intention setting, journaling and ritual in her classes. I believe all of these tools are necessary to support a long life of dancing. I gained incredible insight into my practice and into my life through her guidance in her workshop. Kelley is a bright guiding light in the tribal fusion belly dance world!”

R. Fischer, Boulder CO

“I met Kelley through a mutual friend and was blown away by her compassion, true kindness, and the time she spent with me. She’s a phenomenal listener and an intuitive healer, with a big heart. From the moment I saw her I knew my session was going to be so healing. We worked together for maybe 2-2.5 hours and it never felt rushed. She gave me practices to do after our session and even brought a crystal that I bought from her because she thought it would add to my healing. I’m really grateful to have met her. I highly recommend her and look forward to working with her in the future.”

 

R. Freidman, Bay Area CA

“Kelley has been a guiding force of wisdom and healing in my life for several years. I had the privilege of living with her as a housemate for two of those years. Kelley has helped me through the stress of a graduate program, relationship issues, grief and the difficult process of letting go, as well as developing an intimate connection to my body through so many methods: movement instruction, massage, herbal tinctures and nutrition guidance, introducing me to the healing practice of collage, and also suggesting helpful meditations for self-inquiry. She is a powerful force of compassion, which comes through strongly in the calm, attentive way she listens to people and offers spot-on insights and suggestions. Kelley is an inspiration in her devotion to self-development and the way she infuses her dance, art, and counseling with profound spiritual depth.”

B. Fitzgerald, Ithaca NY

“I met Kelley Mountain about 8 years ago. She came into my life at a very pivotal moment. I was fresh out of college. And rehab. Not only was I ridden with life threatening substance abuse problems, but I was severely disillusioned with the path that society, my parents, and authoritative institutions had paved for me. I was raw and ready for a new reality. She was the first healer I met in this crucial time. She taught me about herbal medicine, meditation, the chakra system, TCM, and how to properly prepare food according to ancient traditions. She also introduced me to documentaries dense with information about occult arts and esoteric agendas of our culture. Meeting her opened the door to an entirely cathartic transformation of mind, body and emotion. My world changed drastically and dramatically. I healed, and then became a healer myself, teaching many people the ways she taught me. Life, to this day, continues to unfold in a magical synchronization and I can’t imagine living without the genres of information she helped to gift me.”

C. Woolery, Bay Area CA

I first met Kelley Mountain when I moved to the Bay Area 8 years ago. What a sweet and lovely human! I had absolutely no clue about Nutrition and ate fast food every day of the week, and was chronically ill. Kelley offered to come over and give me a consultation on “nutrition”. She took the food in my fridge and taught me how to cook. That day was utterly life changing for me. For the past 8 years I’ve developed an undying passion for Nutrition and Health and in a way, Kelley saved my life. I will be forever grateful to this lovely woman for sparking a catalyst for change in my life, and I’m now on the path to writing a book on how to “Detox” and owe it all to her. I honestly don’t know where I’d be today without her guidance. She is truly a gem and I highly recommend her as a former client and friend.

A. Redtree, Bay Area CA

The Women’s Retreat was absolutely amazing. I had never felt so much sisterhood in my entire life. I love all of the women that I met at this retreat dearly, and I always want to be a part of their lives. The retreat site was very calming and cleansing. I volunteered in the kitchen, and it was a wonderful experience to be able to prepare and serve meals to my sisters. Rivka led amazing yoga classes, that I very much appreciated every morning. She is such a wonderful woman. Kelley’s dance sessions were so fun and inspired me to get out of my comfort zones to let my body move freely. I loved Kelley’s young and friendly spirit. We had two healing ceremonies where we supported each other during our healing experiences and shared songs. I very much recommend this retreat, and I very much look forward to attending more in the future.

Kelley Mountain has been a powerful inspiration in my life in many ways. She started as a bright light I admired from a distance, then I was fortunate to have her as a yoga instructor, dance guru, massage therapist, medicine woman healer and sister. Kelley has a brilliant way of educating newbies as she lays things out clearly and concisely. She is very soothing and instills confidence in anyone she meets. Her teaching style is professional, challenging yet attainable, verbal and hands on but most of all empowering! Kelley carries herself in a way that catches people’s eye and her presence has made an impact on my life after seeing her perform and prepare for numerous performances. Kelley lives to dance and move in any way she can. She has a diligent yoga and dance practice and never lets anything get in the way of her movement. Her dedication is awe inspiring to myself and many others. Kelley mountain has a devoted following of those she has inspired with her solid practices and will continue to widen her circle of friends and clientele as she continues to evolve as a woman and teacher. Kelley is beautiful and radiant woman indeed!

Kelley Mountain is one of the most embodied tribal fusion dancers I have seen. Her beauty and spirit shine when she moves.

R. Fisher, Boulder CO

Belly Dancer, Boulder, CO

Kelley’s level of discipline and passion can only be matched with the best. Her style is Tribal Fusion, though she does not limit herself and often trains hard to incorporate many other flavors that brings her performances a strong, unique flare and tells a story. As my mentor, she is an intuitive, insightful and rigorous dance teacher. Her classes would include at least half an hour of meditation and yoga, an hour of isolation/combinations/floor work/choreography, and a half an hour of exercise. When Kelley and I trained together, we would go for a run first, then practice for two to three hours. She not only teaches how to belly dance, she takes the time to go deeper. She taught me the importance of clearing the mind, correct posturing and breath in yoga, how dance movements should feel and look like, positive diet corrections to improve health and performance, and that the essence of belly dance is obtaining a deeper connection to myself and body.

R. Howard, Tucson AZ

My dear friend Kelley offered me some crystal healing a few months back and I gladly accepted. My experience with the healing session was very relaxing and inspiring. What really touched me about Kelley and her work was her presence. She was present and informative in her initial conversation about what the session would entail, and simply present with my energy as we spoke. During the session she was present with me, but additionally with spirit allies guiding the session. Because of her great connection with these spirits I feel her healing session was very successful. In saying successful I refer to transformation, empowerment, and clearing. I highly recommend one, two, or regular sessions with this beautiful healer.

The Anatomy of Initmacy

The Anatomy of Initmacy

The way to a woman’s body, is through her heart.  The way to a man’s heart, is through his body.  (This is a generalization, of course)

I am going to speak in this article within the frame of heterosexual partnerships, where the woman is closed in her availability to give herself sexually to her man.  Though perhaps this information can be useful in other contexts as well to people in various relationship orientations, or from the view of a woman whose man is not opening to her.  I invite you to take in the essence of what is said here and if it can be helpful to you in any way, then mission accomplished.

The Anatomy of Intimacy

It is like a flower, with delicate and delightful layers, leading into the center point of physicality where everything is joined together in a cohesive foundation.  In this article, we are going to address the outer layers of the flower here together, as these are highly missed by the awareness within our sex culture in the world, yet are essential layers for true and sustained physical intimacy to thrive, keeping the spark of romance and connection alive in the partnership.

The Most Outer Petals of the Flower of Love

News flash – Foreplay begins outside the bedroom for women.  Please pause and take that in for a second.

Foreplay for a woman includes all of the ways the couple moves together through the daily life activities, and moves through the world together.  All the simple moment to moment experiences of connecting and considering each other, are giving her drops, streams, or floods of sensual nectar into her well of sexual energy.

The Middle Layer Petals of the Flower of Love

Here’s the juicy honey spot of this article. Please take this in, and re-read it at least 2x to get yourself connected to this information and then put it into delightful loving practice.

Energetic fluffing – all ways of sharing intimacy that includes clothes on, and is sensual yet not sexual in nature.  This layer is essential for women’s longevity of sexual energy and replenishment of it in her body (physically and energetically), to fill her well so she can then give from a place of overflowing juicy goodness.

If a woman is not opening up in her heart and body, go back to nourishing the energy connection.  This affectionate attention communicates to the woman about the quality of safety, security, care, and love that she has available to receive from her man.

Get a massage table!  This investment will greatly increase the quality and quantity of your sensuality, and you can have sex on it in other positions that are fun and are a bit harder to do on a bed.  It’s also fun to have a another designated place for sexy time, rather than it always being confined to just the bed, as it gives more variety to the over all patterns of love-making longevity.  They fold up and store easily, and you can buy online for about $100 and have it delivered to your door.

Be patient, curious, and creative.  She will come around once she knows her man is really there for her in this way, if she is feeling the desire of that connection still within her core.  It’s most likely that if your woman is not giving to you, it’s because you haven’t given to her in the ways she truly needs in a long time (these ‘middle layer petals of intimacy’), and her well has been dried up for even longer; yet you’re hoping and maybe even expecting her to give her sex to you, and becoming hurt and disappointed when this isn’t the case.

Don’t’ be too hard on yourself either, this is a general conditioned sexual behavior that we are all breaking through at this time.  This is rampant out there in the world today and bringing devastation and destruction to relationships, as there is a dynamic playing out of men not knowing how to truly give in the ways women need, women not knowing how to communicate about it or even know what their needs are, men not knowing how to listen and follow requests she makes –all boils down to communication, and the great lack of skill that many couples are struggling with.

Focus on levels of intimacy that don’t involve being naked, kissing, breasts, and genitals.  Think back to when you first met, before you made love for the 1st time.  Recall the ways you were affectionate then, to give you ideas about what can work in this realm of intimacy, and bring these ways to the forefront, maybe for a little while, as long as it takes for your woman to start to feel a desire to open more to you.

Some examples of ‘energetic fluffing’ are:

Gentle petting strokes on her back, belly, hips

Massage – get a massage table!!

Playing with her hair

Meditate together

Gently caressing her face

Eye gazing

Opening communication about your love and intimacy, sharing desires and needs, acknowledging each other for ways that you feel supported and considered

The book titled “The 5 Love Languages”, by Gary Chapman, is an excellent resource:

  • Words of affection
  • Touch
  • Gifts
  • Acts of service
  • Quality time

Make the effort, it is disempowering to tell yourself that there is no time in the day to share love with your beloved.  Create a more appealing and supportive love story for you two to enjoy and be nourished by.  Everyone has at least 5 mins at the end of every day.  Start there.  Just lay down and hold each other, and share about your day and how you’re feeling, or what’s truly going on for you.  Your communication IS THE KEY to greater intimacy!!  I cannot say this enough. I do a lot of relationship counseling in my work, and across the board, when I ask my clients what their partner says when they brings up a topic of concern, I get told they don’t talk about it.  How can you expect to go deeper when you aren’t even talking about the issues at hand?

Yet, people turn around and expect their intimacy to be fulfilling, it just simply does NOT work that way.

You actually need to put in effort to change the dynamic of intimacy in your relationship.  It’s like an art project created between people’s love.  It’s an act of creation.  If there’s no effort to keep it progressing, it just ends up being a pile of junk collecting dust.  The good thing is you can always blow the dust off, reset your creative platform and continue developing your project.  Though in this case of creative expression, it takes two (or three or more, depending on the amount of people you are creating with).  It is not enough for just 1 person in the game to play.  Both need to be on decks for the ship to sail and enjoy the journey together.

Men – Please hear me on this!!  Don’t do all of this strictly with the goal in mind to get your beloved to open to you sexually.  Don’t try something once or twice, and then think the green light is on and you should make your move to take it further.  Develop a higher level of maturity, please, and give to her simply from the desire to give without any expectation for a return, because you want to serve her and make her feel good.  Women need to feel this quality of giving from our men.  All women have had, or are having an experience of her man always giving from a place of expecting to be given to in return.  This must change.  I cannot say this enough.  If you care about the longevity of your connection, you will use this as an opportunity to practice this higher form of giving, and your relationship will blossom from it in many ways and create sustainable intimacy for you both.

Once these outer petals of love have been delighted in, in wonderfully nourishing ways, then proceed to the center of the flower where the energy of intimate creation can dance in the physicality of bodies.  There are many resources available on this topic, if you are searching.  Yet that known, I can tell you, that if you practice what I have shared in this article, you will far more naturally be attuned to the physical desires of your beloved, and your communication skills will be at a level of higher ability to lovingly, compassionately guide each other into the wholeness of your physical bliss together.

This is useful information for couples to know and practice in their connection, to whatever degree and in whatever flavor works for them.

And so, the flower blossoms and fills the room with a decadent fragrance, colors, and textures to captivate the senses.  Cheers to your sweet precious love, you are a warrior of loving light on it’s path of awakening!

Excerpts below are from “The Book of Courtesans”, by Susan Griffin, for your inspiration:

“Carnal Knowledge

…  The realm of sexual pleasure is also the realm of the psyche.  To loved or be loved, to touch, be touched, feel pleasure, passion, ecstasy, to surrender and release engages every human faculty, not sensual adroitness alone but intelligence of every kind.  As well as being able to give pleasure, a good lover must be sensitive and aware, registering what kind of touch, for instance, on which part of the body arouses desire, knowing which mood calls for a robust approach, which moment requires gentleness, able to laugh or tease while at the same time probing both the mind and body of the loved one.”

“The desire to give pleasure is, however, not the only motive.  The deepest ardor of the lover is the desire to know the beloved: to test, feel, see, taste, smell, witness every response, every shade of sensation… In recognizing even the subtlest desires of the beloved or in answering these desires with a delicate precision, the lover is providing a mirror for what the beloved feels.  The beloved feels known, even ravished by this intense reflection.  And in turn the one who is loved feels an echoing need to know, because being a lover as well as being the beloved, the desire is to please by knowledge… The urge to consume knowledge can be consuming in itself.  Though in an afternoon of lovemaking desire may arc and come to fruition, the desire to know is inexhaustible.  The wish is for an impossible thoroughness, a complete union between the knower and the known.”
