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!

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.

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.

Guide to a Man’s Desire to Serve His Woman in the Bedroom

Guide to a Man’s Desire to Serve His Woman in the Bedroom

In my work I have come to realize this core truth, of a man’s inherent desire to serve his woman.  He wants nothing more than to give her what she wants and needs, in every aspect, and especially in the bedroom.  When a man feels it is true that he is rocking is woman’s world in the bedroom and beyond, it affirms to him that he is a real man, and from this place he is able to receive deep personal satisfaction and use it as a source of regenerative energy which helps fuel the rest of his life, outside the relationship.

Though this pure desire is there, men are confronted with layers upon layers of conditioning which drastically impede their ability to fulfill this intention (for himself and for the woman desiring him).  Some of these layers that we will examine here together are men’s education in how to serve a woman, men’s ego regarding their sexual abilities, and communication and emotional skill sets.

Men, be aware that you have been brain-washed, culturally and pornographically.  What you have learned from porn is not the reality of what good sex is for women.  Be aware that it’s most likely that the women you have been with have not been totally honest with you about your love making skills.  Be aware that in porn, those women are being paid to make it look like they are loving the sex.  And the porn is typically geared towards men’s pleasure rather than a woman’s.

For the most part, strictly genital, goal focused, mechanical sexual pleasure greatly misses the boat. Now I’m not saying here that there’s anything wrong with that kind of sex.  I think there’s a time and a place for all kinds of sex to happen.  What I am speaking to here is the over all flavor of the long term sexual history.

Why?  What is missing in porn, and what often gets over-looked in romantic couplings?  True authentic loving connection, foreplay, sensuality, creativity, romance, play, deep energetic presence during intercourse – you know, the kind where almost where no movement is even needed for the couple to climax in deep ecstatic bliss together (and if you don’t know, then be aware, and maybe even excited, to know that there is so much more than what you think you know).

Men, be open to the idea that you are a student and let yourself be taught.  Read books, watch videos, take courses, and most essentially –  simply create open and honest communication with your partner about your sex together.  Ask how you can be an even better lover to her than ever before.  Be curious about your own sexual self and explore different aspects of it with your partner.  Do some investigation, experiment, play, put time and effort into learning new skills.  Why not?! This is the most fun kind of homework you can give yourself, right?

Men, I know that at your core you want nothing more than to serve and please your woman, and for her to feel like you rock her world fully, and that she can totally trust and rely on you to take care of her.  Be aware that you are up against thousands of years of conditioning to unravel in order to accurately do so.  Your relationship is your loving reflection, teacher, and guide on that journey. Make use of it and take advantage of the opportunity to grow and develop in this way.

In order to do so you must open to the idea that you don’t know everything about being the greatest lover in the world, that you aren’t the grand master of all pussy’s roaming the Earth.  Just because a way you touched, kissed, licked, sucked, or fucked one woman in the past in a way that seemed to work, don’t just assume that’s how all women’s bodies and desires work.  Don’t get stuck on repeating the same climax inducing technique for all sexy time between you and your woman either.  Yes, good job if you found something to make her come, but don’t stop there, keep it in your back pocket and continue to explore other way s to satisfy her.  Routine sex that leads to climaxing is still routine, and over time that move that was once so off the charts orgasmic will become flat.

Be open, be curious, be vulnerable.  It’s better to say “I don’t know, show me”, rather than try to ‘fake it til you make it’.  Men, be present, patient, curious.  Listen, ask questions, listen, ask questions, listen, ask questions.  Encourage your woman to use her voice and guide you.  Make it so clear that you want nothing more than to make her come all over you while she quivers in orgasmic pleasure, and that you are hanging on her every word to guide you into giving this to her.

Men are heavily identified with the ways they think they know are true about what it means to be a good lover.  Take this moment here to re-read this, pause, and truly let that sink in.  Contemplate this for a second and consider if this is applicable to you, before instantly rejecting it.

They have watched and studied from porn movies about what women want in sex, and they have mainly or totally only experienced women who conform to that porn-prescribed image. One of the ways women have been conditioned in sex, is that even in the moments where she is being given to, she will give up herself (her needs and desires) for the pleasure and confidence boost she can give to the man by her (mostly exaggerated) response to his love making.  Women are great at faking/exaggerating pleasure and orgasms, all which only misleadingly confirms for him that he knows all there is to know about how to do sex in the best ways.

I hear from some men, either from clients, or in personal experience, or in what my friends share with me about their men, a desire to go deeper beyond what they know in sex.  Yet it is often quickly backed up with a resistance to go beyond what they already know, to learn more, and make the effort to widen the horizons.  And why is this?  Because when it comes down to it, even with a deeper desire to expand in this way, when it comes time for sex, they just want it how they want it and they don’t want to put the extra effort, attention, and patience into it.  On one level I think this comes from simply being tired from life’s demands and just wanting to get their basic sexual needs met.  On another level though I feel they are battling with their ego, which tells them that they already know what they need to know.

Women – As women, it is up to us to truly, compassionately, lovingly reflect to our men the quality of their presence and performance in love making. Know that (for the most part) a man wants nothing more than to serve and please his woman fully and completely.  Know that there may be some resistance at first when there is new learning cracking open.  Be aware when it is a time to try something new and when is it a time to enjoy what is already known (your indicator here will be the energy level of your partner.  If he is tired, it’s probably not the best time to push him to his edges, and rather it’s more of a time to enjoy what is known and comfortable between you).  Make a special date to bring new learning into the mix, so each person can plan to be available and energetic and present and patient for the experience.

Men, in order to grow in this way, you must be open, vulnerable, curious, available, brave, honest, patient, and able to receive feedback.  Where do you feel you want to develop more in your sex with your partner?   Tell her your desires to develop more in these ways, and propose to make sexy time play dates, that are solely focused on you two trying new things together.  Maybe take turns, where one time you lead in doing something new, and then the next time she leads in doing something that’s new and edgy for her.  My own personal tip here – invest in a massage table.  Yes, this will greatly increase the sensual aspect of your relationship by a lot.  Trust me.  Just get one, and go from there.

Men, use your voice – you have to guide her in how you want to be sexed by her.  Your preferences can even change from one day to the next, in fact, they likely will, because every day our energy is different, what we want and need moment to moment changes.  Get accustomed to vocalizing your preferences each time in a way that is warm, inviting, loving, gentle, clear.  Make it fun!  Your sex life and your love is worth the effort, it’s worth pushing through whatever layers of discomfort are present in simply talking with your woman about your sex.  Ask her what works and doesn’t work for her.  Gently and lovingly encourage her to be honest with you.  Remember that at the core of your asking her, is your desire to truly serve her in this way, so be gentle and patient with yourself no matter what she reveals to you.

There’s no way around this communication piece.  Avoidance will seem buy you time, yet slowly over time it will build a wall between you and your partner, until eventually it will be so immense that you can’t see your way around it, and there’s no reaching the person on the other side of it.  Why as a culture are we so afraid to talk about our sex with our partner?  Why do we feel so much shame and guilt for having desires and needs, and around our ability to express them?  How would it be if we met these conversations with simple curiosity and innocence?

Here’s the chain reaction: the voice shuts down – the heart shuts down – the confidence shuts down –  the arousal shuts down – the genitals shut down.

This personal work and exploration is paramount at this time in our world, where we have the cultural rise of feminine power, a tempering of the masculine, and a sexual evolution budding up more and more; and I believe, soon to be making its way into the mainstream.  It’s ‘the last frontier’, in a sense, of the holistic/spiritual/empowerment movement sweeping our world.  I believe it’s so crucial to the state of health in our culture.  Think about it – if we can’t even communicate with our lover about the sex we are having (the most personal and intimate act we are able to experience with another human), how does that reflect in how we move about the world in generally mundane respects?   I believe that the degree of strength it takes to be vulnerable, patient, gentle, loving, compassionate, and open, to have these kinds of communications is the kind of strength that is going to help us transform this world for the better, so that we can bring that same kind of strength in our communications to other relationships, business, and even political affairs.  And even beyond the ways I feel it impacts the world at large, it’s just way more fun to have great sex with your lover, and to keep it an evolving project together.  So for fuck’s sake, have fun with it and enjoy your life my friends!
