Lorraine Crookes is the founder of Shelki; which supports those struggling with their sexual energy who may feel closed down, stuck, disconnected or in a place of fear or shame. Shelki is a unique approach to empowering mind, body and soul, building connection to needs, wants and desires and meeting this basic human need without judgement. It transforms sexual energy through a range of energy and massage techniques used to release resistance in the physical and energetic body. Lorraine gives a voice to sexual energy and celebrates it as the foundation and creator of life.
For more than 10 years Lorraine has taught, educated and inspired over 6000 young people and adults to be the best version of themselves. She has written and delivered bespoke personal development courses for education and charities and won a number of awards for her voluntary, charity and community work.
Alongside her amazing professional life Lorraine had a parallel and secret life filled with fear and shame. Since the age of 20 she has been on a roller coaster journey of self-discovery with her sexuality. Over the years Lorraine has explored and indulged in a wide range of experiences in the world of Swinging, BDSM and Kink.
This alternative life style is not Lorraine’s only curiosity in life she has a thirst for knowledge and is self a confessed study-holic. As well as an Hons degree in Life Long learning, she has multiple qualifications in education and training as well as in Mental Health, Health and Social Care, British Sign Language, four types of Energy Healing and 6 different types of Massage, including tantric. She has also done courses in Meta Health, Sex Addiction, Life Coaching – the list goes on.
Lorraine has been featured in newspapers, has spoken on stage and given interviews across different social media platforms reaching a global audience. She is one of the first 30 Energy Alignment Method (EAM) mentors in the world and has shared a stage with its founder, Yvette Taylor.
Lorraine’s life is one many are in awe of, but it’s not been an easy journey. Her double life of teaching versus her sexual curiosity became too much and in 2016 – with fear and shame at the core and following depression and illness, she knew she could not sustain and build her professional career and continue to indulge in her alternative lifestyle.
What did she do? Lorraine made the bold decision to give up her career as a middle leader to start on a journey of self discovery. She discovered EAM and tantra and her life changed forever.
Shame and fear become connection and empowerment and, as they say, the rest is history. From the dark shadows she created Shelki to help transform the lives of others so that they can enjoy the freedom and power of their own sexual energy.
