About Vireo

Vireo Karvonen - Dancing Pleasure Goddess

In spring 2008, Vireo, “Dancing Pleasure Goddess™”, became certified by Leyolah Antara as a Kundalini Dance™ Facilitator. Since that time, Vireo has been inspiring and empowering women  through her many and diverse offerings (listed below).

Her biggest gift is that she intuits in the moment what is no longer working for you in your life & also intuits in the moment what will support you in your highest awakening . From there Vireo personalizes each session to your highest needs and empowers you with tools, skills, techniques & practices from her treasure chest filled with her decades of learning and training.

As the mother of two teenage boys, she brings a wealth of life experience and over a decade of expertise in the areas of personal transformation, sexual healing from sexual abuse, trauma release (especially related to suicide), communication, divorce healing, attracting your ideal beloved partner, tantra, spirituality and relationship shifts (mother, daughter, lover, etc).

Vireo has a gift at creating safe and sacred space where women of all shapes, sizes and ages, feel safe to be themselves and share openly some of their deepest fears, hurts, worries, desires, darkest secrets, and more. In both one on one sessions and in group offerings, she has supported and served women in freeing themselves from lifelong patterns of self-sabotage to self-love, from depression to freedom of expression, from sexual dissatisfaction/frustration to sexual healing, from feelings of not enough to embracing a deeper self-acceptance, from struggle to thriving, from shallow physical sexuality to deeper sacred union with your Beloved in which you open each other to Source/God through love-making.

In 2011,  after working intensively in a Live Your Genius program, Vireo launched “Be Surrendered to the Dance of Life” one on one life coaching programs.  Later in 2012, Vireo co-facilitated weekly Healing Dance Therapeutic groups with with psychiatrist Christine Carter, M.D. and also psychologist, Jane Carr.

which have their roots in Leyolah Antara’s Kundalini Dance™ (certified as a facilitator in 2008).

In 2017 after worked intensively one on one with a Human Design coach and studying Human Design since January 2017,  Vireo launched her Human Design one on one chart reading sessions.  Read more below to discover how knowing and understanding your Human Design is a key foundation to build your life on.

Also in 2017, after a 6 week long intensive ‘Sacred Femininity Teacher Training’ with Tao Tantric Arts in Thailand, Vireo  began offering Women’s Tantra Retreats.  This training also allowed Vireo to enrich her existing one on one life coaching treasure chest of resources with many more Taoist and Tantric skills, tools, techniques and practices. She also brings this richness of an already overflowing treasure chest to the ‘Conscious Loving, Sacred Union’ couples’ tantra retreats that she co-facilitates with her beloved.

In 2017, she will be launching several new programs, such as her group coaching, “Live Surrendered to the Dance of Life”  to support women in sustaining, embodying and living fully in their daily lives,  the skills that they learn in her workshops and retreats.

Vireo is a lifelong learner who is constantly adding new skills and gems to her treasure chest of powerful healing and transformational practices, skills and techniques.

Recently Vireo invested 6 weeks with Tao Tantric Arts becoming a Sacred Femininity Facilitator (see below).
