Love, relationship, intimacy and sexuality can be exhilarating and challenging at the same time. Our goal is to provide a safe place for you to learn exciting things about sex, love and your body. We feel, the better and more informed we all are, the better, safer, and healthier decisions we are able to make for ourselves and our partners.

We work diligently to provide you quality information and education to explore and find answers that will:

  • Empower you to improve your relationships
  • Ignite your passion
  • Explore what is possible in your sexuality
  • Create healthy relationships

Beyond the Bedroom brings together local and national experts, therapists and teachers who facilitate workshops and lectures on a variety of topics designed to help create lasting love and effective communication skills in relationships. Relationships come in many forms, shapes and configurations.  We bring awareness to them all allowing greater compassion and understanding in our differences.

Our Team

Daka Dan Beyond the Bedroom Founder and PresenterDaka Dan, Founder and Executive Director of Beyond the Bedroom

While there are some questions about the true meaning of the word Daka, Dan uses the following definition: “simply speaking they are males and females who possess advanced experiences of tantric transformation and control and are therefore able to increase the blissful wisdom of a highly qualified practitioner”. 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 also 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 his clients and the wider community asking them to explore what is possible so they can decide what works best for them and their relationships.

Renee met Daka Dan 5 years ago as a vendor and presenter at an event he was managing. She was immediately impressed by his vision to create his own educational event that focused on helping people to thrive in love, relationship and sexuality.  Daka Dan’s vision so moved and inspired Renee that she was on board before the production of the first Beyond the Bedroom conference.  Her continued involvement and ongoing ideas have led to the current success of not only the annual Beyond the Bedroom conference, but the monthly educational events that are now offered by the company.
