About Lakshmi Devi
“Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.”-Dalai Lama
One thing I have learned over the course of my life is that at the core, we are really all the same – we all just want to love and be loved. Being a student and teacher of yoga and meditation for over 40 years has taught me a lot about what it means to connect with myself. My study and teaching of tantra over the last 20 years has taught me about bringing that inner connection into relationship with another, and then ultimately with all of life. I truly believe it is that deep connection with ourselves, each other, and all of life that we are all seeking.
As a professional cuddlist I am passionate about creating a safe space for my students and clients in which to relax and be nurtured through the healing power of touch, human connection, and unconditional love. I am honored to be a part of the journey in helping others experience personal transformation through consensual non-sexual touch, coupled with empowered communication, clear boundaries, and compassionate presence.
When I’m not cuddling you can find me teaching yoga, meditation, and leading workshops, classes and private sessions through my Sacred Loving Tantra meetup group. Some of my favorite activities are partner yoga, contact improv, ecstatic dance, kirtan, being in nature, and playing barefoot on the earth.
You may be wondering about my unusual name. ‘Lakshmi Devi’ was given to me by my yoga teacher over 40 years ago and means ‘Goddess of Abundance’. It is pronounced – “Lock –shmee Day-vee,” or you can just call me Lakshmi.
