Embodied Intimacy was founded by Buster and Rachel as a vehicle for healing, transformation, and growth. It is now a colourful co-creation involving our global community of somatic adventurers.
Buster’s dharma is being by example and leading with integrity. He literally wears his heart on his sleeve and has a reputation for pleasantly shocking an entire room with his candid emotional awareness and ability to reveal himself, transparently, no matter how awkward and messy it might look.
Buster’s work is focused on helping his clients to feel more alive and connected in every sense, to address the root cause of mental health and behavioral problems, and transform the overwhelming effects of relational and developmental trauma into empowering relational growth and healing.
Buster is the co-founder of Embodied Intimacy, founder of Embodied Intimacy Training and a Certified Sensorimotor Psychotherapist in private practice since 2008, specialising in individual, couple and group therapy for trauma and attachment related issues around intimacy, sex and relationship.Work 1:1 with Buster
Rachel Rickards is an international leader in the field of personal transformation, intimacy, embodiment, and relating. She is a group facilitator extraordinaire, event producer, and a new mother.
In 2014 she and Buster Radvik co-founded Embodied Intimacy, which has become one of the most respected organizations globally that offers trainings and events focussed on intimacy, trauma, relational intelligence, somatic education and community.
Since 2019, Rachel has led the Belly2Belly Facilitator Training after her teacher and mentor, David Cates, passed the torch and CEO position for this work to her. Belly2Belly offers a simple and yet profoundly healing set of embodied and relational practices, which support people to learn to regulate their nervous systems in a way that can be transformational for their relationships.
Rachel’s newest passion project launching this year is “The Field Facilitator Training.” This is a revolutionary new experiential learning environment for upcoming group facilitators who are passionate about creating fields of deep group-heart coherence and learning how to facilitate group soul emergence.The Field Facilitator Training
Our Beautiful Tribe
The Embodied Intimacy tribe is a heart-centred community of thousands committed to exploring the intersection of embodiment, intimacy, and human connection, believing that the depth of the work we do is amplified when it is done in community.
This global tribe is made up of individuals from diverse backgrounds but all sharing a passion for deepening our connection to ourselves and others, and exploring the nature of human connection and intimacy through somatic practices.
This makes the tribe a supportive and transformative space to explore vulnerabilities, desires, and boundaries in a safe and non-judgmental community.
