10-weeks of live interactions

Go deep into relationship and make lasting connections.

  • Are you longing for a devotional, secure and thriving love partnership? 

  • Are you longing for stable, mature and thriving community?

  • Do you run up against relational patterns and wonder if the problem is the current relationship system?

  • Do you feel weighed down by the trappings of domesticity and long to play, explore, and connect?

  • Do the needs of family feel like too much to hold?

  • Do you long for more intimacy with self, spirit, the earth, and others?

Why are love relationships so hard? And building community even harder? 

guiding questions

Love relationships and community can not be solved separately, but must be approached as mutually symbiotic co-arisings as part of a larger social ecology.

Learn how to consciously build community and create thriving networks of love and partnership.

This course is not just an educational journey—it's a deeply transformative how-to guide for the revolution at the very heart of human civilization.

We live in world in crisis.. Industrial-growth, post-capitalist nuclear-family society doesn’t work - the consequences are environmental destruction, an epidemic of mental illness and increasing extremism and violence.

None of us want to live glued behind glowing screens and disconnected from the love, village, and sustainable ways of life, yet few know how to bridge the gap from where we are to where we need to be. 

Join us for this live, interactive, digital experience unlock love, eros and community.

begin the journey

So much unnecessary suffering on the journey of liberation within relationships + community could be avoided if more people had access to this course. The fundamentals presented in these modules provide a roadmap to sustainably navigating the edge of culture. I found this course to be so significant, that the first thing I did when I completed it was invite my community to form a focused study group around these resources. With so much depending on the health of our relational ecosystems at this time, I can’t recommend The Forbidden Fruit course more.

This course gave me bearings inside a terrain that up until this point had been rife with instability and confusion.

I couldn’t imagine doing relationship and community without the building blocks John, Julia and Ian have masterfully broken down here for us.

meet your guides

Hi, we’re John Wolstone, Ian Mackenzie, and Julia Maryanska - the filmmakers behind The Village of Lovers.

We’ve often joked that making this film over the past decade was our equivalent of getting a PHD in Love, Eros and Intentional Community, and now we’re excited to have finally organized our learnings from Tamera and many other lineages these past years into this groundbreaking course.

We created this course to. help other lovers unlock the fundamental powers of love and eros in the context of a thriving community.

We believe that partnership (or other love relationships) and community are not at odds, but a symbiotic co-arising that we must tend together, if we want a more beautiful, safe and pleasurable world for ourselves and all kin.

What if I still have questions?

We will meet bi-weekly, 5 times for group dialogue, teaching and Q&A sessions following the 5 core themes. Pod call times are TBD by pod members.

how often will we be meeting? 

The course will be a combination of self-study modules, all-group teaching and dialogue calls, and small group integration pods which will meet bi-weekly, where guided prompts, and emergent inquiries will create spaces of integration, applied learning, mutual support and new friendships, collaboration, and perhaps even the seeds of future village. Groups will be clustered based on shared geography, creating more surface area for possible in-person weavings.

how is the course organized?

This course will be training how to build a powerful inter-relational web of support around you, where you will share your learning, receive questions and feedback. During the experience you will be invited to join an intimate pod where you can make connections and integrate your experience. 

Who can I practice the assignments with?

This is a 10-week. guided interactive experience that will run from June 26 - August 21, 2024. You will continue to have lifetime access to the course if you would like to take more time or want to review the material deeper. 

How long will this experience take to complete?

You’ll have lifetime access to the course, so you can feel free to break up the modules according to your schedule, and repeat videos to let the content sink in deeper.

How long do i have access to the course?

Please, please, talk to your friends about these tools and perspectives. Our deepest desire is to build a global culture around the revitalization of rites of passage and adulthood initiation.

Can I teach these tools to my friends?

No. We’ve put a lot of time, thought and care into The Forbidden Fruit and we’re charging for it because we believe it has value for life. We ask that you respect the effort that went into the course and do not share it without permission. However, if you have a group that would like to attend together, apply for a group discount here.
