JAS Facilitators


Michael Gibson - Lead Facilitator

The co-founder of the Academy for Men and creator of Just Add Skill workshops for men. He has studied and practiced Sexual Healing through Tantra for over ten years. Through the Academy for Men’s live and online workshops, men learn what women truly need and want sexually, and how to provide it consistently. His research for the book, The Talk your Parents Never Gave You, has revealed the inadequacy of sex education in the world today. This book and the Academy for Men are part of his mission to educate the public and to advance a “Socio Sexual Revolution.”


Lance E. Cole - Instructor

Lance has been studying Tantra for 10 years, spending the last 3 immersed in the teaching of Laurie Handlers and Butterfly Tantra. Discovering that everything in Tantra is self-referent. Learning to deepen his intimacy within, he has discovered his deep passion for intimate relationship with his partner and enjoys bringing to others his story with the hope of sharing more love, power and freedom with them so they may open deeper to themselves and discover the ease and grace of life. Through working with couples and individuals on regaining a sense of self through personal responsibility, boundary work and emotional awareness, he assists them in re-discovering their own personal power. Bridging the gap between the energy of emotion and the physical body using and teaching tools for practical application in everyday life. Lance teaches both the Bliss and Ecstasy courses.
