With Sarah Rose Bright and Graeme Waterfield

Autumn 2025



We are delighted to announce that we are bringing The Making Love Retreat® to the UK in Autumn 2025!  Sign up to the waitlist to be the first to get the details here.  

The Making Love Retreat® is a week long retreat for couples who desire a deeper, more intimate and loving connection. This retreat, created by the founders Diana and Michael Richardson, has been running for 30 years, helping thousands of couples to heal and deepen their intimate relationship and sex life. It’s a proven approach that works for heterosexual couples, from ages 18 to 80s, from all walks of life.  

“When you touch one thing with deep awareness, you touch everything.” – Lao Tzu 

Would you love to:

  • Deepen the quality of intimacy and love that you experience together? 

  • Have space and time to prioritise your relationship and your sex life? 

  • Move beyond ‘goal-based sex’ and find a new and deeply fulfilling way to experience sex that can get better and better? 

  • Smooth out the places where you feel stuck in your intimate relationship and feel more ease with each other? 

  • Discover new understandings and ways forward with sexual or intimacy challenges?

Join us for the making love retreat 

This retreat is an opportunity to commit to and prioritise your intimate life, away from the distractions and busyness of life. Whether you’re looking to revitalise your relationship, committed to deepening what you have, or you just sense there is more, this retreat is for you.

This is an opportunity for couples to reset their sex and intimate life as  they explore a revolutionary new way to experience sex – the making love approach.  You and your partner will experience clear guidance and daily lessons in which you will discover new ways of being together and how to deepen your intimate connection.  

The Making Love Retreat allows you the time and space to explore and learn and to deepen your understanding each day through experiential exercises in a private, relaxed and spacious learning environment. 


What’s included:

Each day there is time for:

  • Teachings on the slow sex approach and the Love Keys
  • Q&A time to share experiences and ask questions
  • Practice time in the privacy of your bedroom
  • Movement/Chi Gung
  • Relaxation

Participants are assured that there is no partner swapping, nudity or sex in the group room. All intimate practice takes place between each couple in the privacy of their own bedroom.

As this body of work is focused around female-male penetration, the retreat is designed for heterosexual couples. Get in touch with Sarah for other offers open to couples of all sexual orientations and gender expressions.

What will you take home with you

How to create a loving, passionate and sustainable intimate life through:

  • Communicating in new ways with your partner on a deeper level, especially on the topics of intimacy and sex.
  • Having a deeper connection and trust of your body.
  • Gaining a new understanding of sex, letting go of the pressures and expectations of how sex ‘should’ be and how men/women ‘should’ act and transforming your whole approach to sex.
  • Experiencing more aliveness, passion and confidence in love making and learning how to continue exploring and deepening together.
  • Finding ways to bring you into deeper connection with yourself and each other.
  • Experiencing more ease and relaxation with each other. You will see this ripple out into other areas of your life as you feel more connected in your relationship.

Your Guides


Hello! We’re Sarah and Graeme, authorised teachers of The Making Love Retreat and we have been in a committed relationship for nearly 6 years. The Making Love approach has been at the heart of our relationship from the beginning and we love sharing our knowledge and experience of the Making Love approach.

Before we met, we spent decades on our own paths, healing and growing and learning about relationships, sometimes painfully. For both of us, we are in the relationship we dreamed of, and knew in the depths of our hearts that was possible.

It hasn’t always been easy and as we have navigated through the highs and the lows of being together, we have seen firsthand the tools and the ways of being which help us to come back to our own hearts and to create a partnership of ever deepening love and intimacy.

In addition to being authorised Making Love teachers, Sarah Rose Bright is a Love, Sex and Intimacy Coach, host of the Love, Sex and Intimacy Podcast and Gene Keys Guide who helps women and couples to reset their sex and intimate lives away from goal-based sex and to discover deep intimacy and expansive pleasure so that they feel relaxed in who they are and have relationships that are happy, loving, passionate and sustainable.

Graeme Waterfield is a teacher of Tai Chi, Qi Gung & Meditation, coaches men individually and in groups in sexual energy mastery, and supports humans in connecting to the wisdom of their soul.

Together, Sarah and Graeme offer retreats, sessions and courses online and worldwide.
