Eros Talks with Nicole Daedone

Dot Divider

Join live at the Eros Monastery, on the set for Eros Talks with OneTaste co-founder Nicole Daedone. Art, science, politics, women, sex, power, and liberation. Eros talks are real, intimate, charged, conversations that aim to cross barriers, build bridges, enliven our deeper wisdom and evoke a new vision of the world, a world seen through the eyes of connection.


Dot Divider

Our original event. Step into "TurnON," an evening described as "eletric," "intimate" and "powerful." In TurnON, players participate in three communication games guided by a facilitiator. The games are based on the mechanics of the OM practice, from attention to "stroking" to honesty and communication. Participants leave with a sense of ignition and intimacy.

What Is OM Workshops

Dot Divider

What if there was a way to use the most powerful human drive—the sex impulse—for more than pleasure or procreation? What if a method had been created to harness that incredible power and direct it towards growth and unconditional freedom? What if one day could change the way you see woman's power forever?

Find out about what thousands of people have experienced and what leading neuroscientists are saying about this groundbreaking practice.

Tibetan Meditation Classes & Retreats

Dot Divider

Join us for traditional Tibetan Buddhism from the Vajrayana tradition. We offer morning Sadhana, meditation and mantra recitation sessions facilitated by a trained guide, as well as in-depth retreats, ceremonies, and pujas guided by authentic lineage holders from the Vajrayana Buddhism line.

Women Over Dinner

Dot Divider

These dinners are a facilitated round table experience with a specific format designed to evoke shares of each woman's unique blueprint of her own power, sexuality and liberation.

There is no discussion or cross talk at these dinners, making this a rare space for women to express without feedback and listen without pressure to respond.

To date, we have had over 35 dinners in 18 major cities including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London and Austin and dinners in Hawaii, Bulgaria, Boston, Nigeria and Nevada City to name but a few.
Created by the same folks who brough you death over dinner.

Free Food

Dot Divider

Free Food is about emptying what is full, and filling what is empty. We provide nourishing sit-down meals to those who could not otherwise afford them, bringing dignity to outcast populations and delivering love through food. At the same time, our meals provide the opportunity to empty out and serve for those who have more than they need.

Joe z

"OneTaste programs accelerated my life and jumped me ahead in all areas of my life. I was 50 years old when I first started. I had left my career job as an engineer and I was set on reinventing myself in many ways. I didn’t have time to learn slowly and take a bunch of different courses. OneTaste’s programs taught me how to integrate all aspects of my life, from dating, business, personal development and family, all into one being. It was so fun and helpful to be supported by an amazing group of like minded individuals. I have been a certified Orgasmic Meditation coach and trainer now for several years and I also own my own soil restoration company. My life is filled with rich relationships I formed during my time with OneTaste with other erotic beings. I’m so glad I decided to take these programs through OneTaste. Truly life changing in many ways."

“To learn through the nature of the waves, to love the water itself, as both the crest and the crash. This is artistic mastery–the way the ocean works equally with the creation and the destruction of form. All returns to the depths.”
