About Us


OneTaste was founded in 2005 with a mission to provide people with teaching and trainings into living a desire-based life, rooted in a felt-sense of connection. In its early days – it started out as Caravan Retreats and operated as “OneTaste, An Urban Retreat Center” until 2010, the company was run by a small, passionate group of practitioners living under one roof in San Francisco.

From 2014 to 2017, the company expanded to become one of Inc 5000’s fastest growing companies with 5 licensed centers centers across the US and London and smaller outposts worldwide.

By 2018, over 35,000 people had participated in our in person events, over 16,000 had taken classes and workshops. Over 1,300 completed our Coaching Program and tens of thousands of people worldwide had learned to OM.

In 2018, at the height of our success, we were cancelled by salacious media mischaracterizations propagated by Bloomberg Businessweek, Playboy, VICE, BBC. It appears that these will be repeated on a forthcoming production on Netflix.

In the wake of this terrible mischaracterization of OneTaste, long-time staff focussed on continuing the broader mission of Eros: to bring rehumanization to the world. 

The non-profit Unconditional Freedom (founded in 2002) continued to do incredible work providing meals to the homeless and other marginalized communities, and launched its Unconditional Freedom Project for the incarcerated and Guards to Guardians program for correctional officers.

Institute of OM Foundation (founded in 2018) engaged world-leading science researchers to study the effects of Orgasmic Meditation, leading to published peer-reviewed studies.

On November 1, 2022, the new owners of OneTaste re-launched the business, hosting a talk and demonstration in New York City by OM creator Nicole Daedone. OneTaste simultaneously announced the availability of its hallmark Intro to OM workshops in Los Angeles and New York City as well as a first-ever mobile app, “The OM App,” providing free OM instruction by its sister company Institute of OM.

In January of 2023 its sister company Institute of OM also launched The Eros Platform, an online community and educational platform built to reach anyone who wants to learn and experience the principles and concepts of Eros and connect with others.
