Description

Where can we safely learn to trust our sexuality?

Having been neglected our entire lives from any decent relational and sexual education we are fumbling around in the most important aspects of a human life - intimacy and sex.

WHAT IS THIS WORKSHOP ABOUT?

This workshop is an environment in which we can put our social and sexual conditioning on hold. Here we don’t need to worry about our sexual performance or how we look. Its a safe space in which we can connect with our self and one another at our own right speed. Where empowering vulnerability instantaneously transforms what is between us to authentic, raw and real love that heals. Where we don’t have to look outside ourselves for approval by discovering simple and powerful ways of being together that help us relax into our true power.

For example, this is not a workshop where you come to pick somebody attractive up. This is where you discover so much more of yourself that you want to live and share. This is not a workshop where you come to find a romantic partner for life. This is where you come to fall in love with all that you are.

Experience mind-blowing, heart opening, playful, movement exploration of the sensual, erotic and sexual. We reach these deeply embodied states through the application of he tantric tools of breath, sound and touch and movement practices and combines it with the spirit of contact improvisation (you don’t have to have any experience of contact improv to take this workshop)

Together we create a playful relational laboratory by simplifying the components of relating, intimacy and sex into its basic elements of breath, sound, touch and movement. Now creating new possibilities by consciously putting the elements back together through consensual explorational interactions.

The heart of the practice is embodied intimacy, a relationally attuned dialogue practice. Body to body. Heart to heart. Pelvis to pelvis. Deep presence embodied interactions. We pair it with he basic elements of contact improvisation, a dance form that focuses on moving together while sharing one center. Through this deep embodied listening our minds are calmed, our senses open, and the movers enter a transpersonal state of intimacy and erotic presence.

Lots of the movement practices are simple, playful and intimate. They reduce the fear and performance anxiety of relating. The focus is on not on doing anything or going anywhere, its about following the connection, moment by moment, simply being together in the inquiry. Most loose their separate sense of self and need to control ones self and others into a play, connection and intimacy discoverd in each moment.

When we are in our bodies we cant hide behind our words and stories about our selves. This non-verbal intimacy does not lend itself to intellectual interpretations. Its real, raw, vulnerable and authentic. Naked, couragous and aware from within our bodied we can feel, honor and transform our wounds and trauma, as well as explore, embody and live who we experience ourslevs to be from the depth of our being.

This conscious exploration of our sexuality is often better than real sex.
