Dominey Drew & The Art of Attraction (July 2017)
Relationship coach Dominey Drew wants to show how the art of attraction truly works.
Life, as the saying goes, is a journey, with all the accompanying unexpected twists, tangents, diversions, even U-turns. It can be an exhausting journey, too. Certain people, however, learn to maintain a particular vision or ideal—intuition, perhaps—from which they derive their strength.
Asheville’s Dominey Phipps Drew would probably count herself among that group. “I have studied the spiritual world and personal development world for nearly 15 years,” says Drew. “Four years of that time I spent attending a highly intensive energy healing school, which taught me to perceive energy dynamics that are constantly operating between people. From the first day I began the work, I knew I wanted to teach it.”
To that end, since 2010 she has also operated as a relationship and intimacy coach, most recently designing a new online course, Art of Attraction (www.DomineyDrew.com), an eight-week-intensive program intended to help single men understand how they are self-sabotaging and teach them to “get out of their own way” in order to attract a life partner.
“I am passionate about creating a safe space for people to explore and embrace the deeper, darker sides of themselves,” she explains. “Choosing to focus on intimacy was the easy part—I love sexual energy. I am drawn to it in all its forms, not just sex and relationships, but dating, flirting, attraction, seduction, suggestion… It is a deep, rich area full of life force and pleasure, and profound transformation is possible there.However, it is also very vulnerable, and we often shut down this part of ourselves.”
This dysfunction has its roots in childhood, when people form deep-seated beliefs that continue to operate within them as they grow older. “Uncovering and releasing these unconscious beliefs takes you off of autopilot,” maintains Drew. “It puts you back in the driver’s seat of your own life. This applies not only to sex and relationships, but to every area of your life. It’s powerful work and the effects are far wider-reaching than just relationships, but I have designed a program specifically for those who are over the dating scene and are ready to do the self-work to attract someone they connect with deeply.”
The social/cultural environment of Asheville, of course, is an ideal one for personal and relationship coaches. But Drew is the first to admit that it can be hard to communicate with precision what she does without raising the occasional eyebrow. (“I have tried to open this practice in one form or another for about eight years, with mediocre results. I just wasn’t able to clarify my message satisfactorily.”) There simply are not that many who combine the sexual with the spiritual; psychologists and coaches typically work on one or the other level, not both at once. Her approach is to operate concurrently on multiple levels—mental, psychological, emotional, spiritual, physical—in order to achieve results far faster than traditional therapy.
“The real benefit of this work is that you uncover, explore, and embrace the dark areas of your mind, body, and spirit. Doing so creates and deepens intimacy with yourself, with another person, and with the Divine—whatever your experience of the Divine is. The name doesn’t matter; it’s that deep connection with something greater that links us all. However, a lot of the results and benefits are honestly beyond words. They exist on a deeper level.”
In addition to offering one-on-one and small group coaching along with her online course, Drew eventually wants to branch out to doing workshops and public speaking, on the local, national, and even international level.
“The formation of this practice has been a long time coming,” she concludes. “It is truly my life’s longing to travel the world teaching this transformational work.”
