Imagine what it might be like, to live into the most grounded, present and passionate version of yourself.

Imagine what might open for you, by belonging to a group that values who you are meant to be erotically and trusts your truth is transformative for everyone around you.

Working from the inside out, kink serves as a form of activism, that moves us out of the victim, oppressor, martyr archetypes, into our wholeness, self-value, and creative connection.  It transforms oppression within our nervous system and imagination; expanding what’s possible and actively transforming our very core, the place for which culture is created.  Despair and powerlessness become impassioned vision and action.

In the context of a conscious and loving community, this weekend retreat could be the perfect place to experiment.  Come join us and practice shifting from what you don’t want to what you DO want!

Why?

  • Connect with others who want to explore the healing and spiritual dimension of kink
  • Discover new ways body-awareness can transform and releases trauma
  • Clarify what you want when you have permission to be fully you
  • Practice asking for your true desires with confidence and ease
  • Experience your wholeness and connection to spirit
  • Generate soul affirming pleasure for others
  • Surrender and receive

Our time together will be guided by Himalayan Tantra teachings and the Principles and Skills of Loving.  It will include embodiment practices, movement, communication skills, consent education and a play party.  You are welcome to come with a beloved with whom you desire to go deep or to come ready to make some new connections.
