Trust, Surrender & Celebration: the keys to intimacy with Alan Lowen

Trust, Surrender & Celebration: the keys to intimacy with Alan Lowen

Now we can dive deeper. The discoveries of yesterday become your keys to open the way into the realm of body-heart-and-soul intimacy. “Am I allowed” now becomes a question that you live and breathe as you explore all that happens in you in meeting other people as intimately as you both choose.

“How deep is my trust?” Am I allowed to surrender to my own experience?” “Am I allowed to celebrate freely my own way of living my male-female nature?” “Am I allowed to experience the full spectrum of my feelings and emotions?” “Am I allowed all my feelings when I am being sexual (or do I restrict myself to one or the other)?” “ Am I allowed to surrender to my passion, to my tender feelings, to my heart, to my soul?” “Am I allowed my libido? My power? My primal wildness?” “Am I allowed ecstasy and orgasm?” “Am I allowed to die into the mystery beyond all doing?” All these questions swirl in the pool of sensual-erotic intimacy into which we dive today.

What about Intimacy? with Jamie Catto

What about Intimacy? with Jamie Catto

In this session we tenderly bust all our foolishly inefficient strategies for getting what we want and clean the channel straight to the heart of direct, visible, powerful communication and action.

We want to enjoy all relationships, at home, at work, in bed, free of manipulation and control, free of complaint and game-playing. We are relearning how to be straight with each other.

Over this two-day process, we will explore the possibility of experiencing deeper and more nourishing connections in our relationships, in all areas of life, which includes both the vulnerability and the presence to share more and more of ourselves.

We will also examine the polarity of the masculine and feminine and our relationship to giving and receiving, sharing tools for being empowered in our vulnerability and taking responsibility for how we feel and what we need. In supporting each others’ unique journeys and excitements, you will use this weekend for shared and reciprocal growth.

Cacao Orgastic Breath Dance Meditation with Andrew Barnes

Cacao Orgastic Breath Dance Meditation with Andrew Barnes

The Orgastic Breath Dance Mediation moves us beyond the mind and into higher levels of awareness. Through dance, music and Tantric breath we raise the energy within every cell of our body. And we learn to direct our sexual life force energy up the spine to light up the thymus gland (heart centre), thyroid gland (throat), pineal gland (3rd eye), and pituitary gland (crown). Through this process, our sexual energy becomes a spiritual platform for accessing extraordinary states of reality.


Cacao, which contains over 300 health-giving nutrients, raises serotonin levels, thereby relieving depression and elevating libido. It also contains anandamide – known as the “bliss molecule” for its capacity to elicit feelings of euphoria. The Hindi word ‘Ananda’ translates into Perfect Bliss.


Shake off the shackles that have bound you to a limited sense and expression of yourself. Discover the dynamic creative power within your sacred, sexy, boundless being.

Opening to Vulnerability: Naked Meditation with Sonalle LaMariposa

Opening to Vulnerability: Naked Meditation with Sonalle LaMariposa

Our vulnerability is key to how we relate to ourselves & to others. When we are able to truly ‘be’ with ourselves, to be open & vulnerable to how we are feeling in every moment, then we can we have compassion for ourselves. Only when we can truly be with ourselves, are we able to truly be with others. The depth of our connection with others is entirely dependant on how vulnerable we are able to be with ourselves.

Digital Dating Detox with Loose Baker

Digital Dating Detox with Loose Baker

An IRL antidote for people who are tired of being mistreated by pixels.

Membership of apps like Tinder is falling – both because people more people are are not satisfied by the digital experience and because we are way more mysterious and complex than can be communicated in a few images and lines of text. Digital dating can so easily leave you feeling dehumanised and isolated.

Brazilian Bioenergetics with Rob Anuprem Wilson

Brazilian Bioenergetics with Rob Anuprem Wilson

This dynamic and deep group therapeutic class will have a focus on the pelvis.
Most people have some blocks in the pelvic section of the body, particularly in this un-natural culture where we are encouraged to hide our feelings and suppress as a societal norm. Not only are there psychological effects but also the pelvis becomes locked in position and inflexible and our energy doesn't flow easily- some people lose all feeling in the pelvic and genital area.


Through dancing, deep breathing and pelvic exercises we will restore the flow of energy to this area and begin feeling our bodies again. There maybe emotional expression, laughter, tears, and vocalisation can all spontaneously happen as we melt the armour in the body and start to feel what has been running in the background.

Liberating Gender With Meg-John Barker

Liberating Gender With Meg-John Barker

This session invites you to explore your gender through a series of activities and discussions. We might think of gender as something that only certain groups of people have to think much about: trans people, or women, for example.


However we all have a gender, and we can all benefit from reflecting on it because gender is highly related to our mental health, our relationships, and how we get on in the world. In this session we’ll consider many things that influence our gender experience, expression, and identity, including the cultural messages around us, our upbringing, and our bodies. We’ll explore what a more intentional approach to gender might look like.

Compassionate Connecting: Cuddle Workshop for Women with Wilrieke Sophia

Compassionate Connecting: Cuddle Workshop for Women with Wilrieke Sophia

When women get together, something magically happens. A soft vibration fills the room when competition turns into compassion. Let's sink in a space of soft touch, slow movements and intimate connection.

In this workshop we will explore connecting from an intimate, vulnerable space with other women. As a woman I have often felt intimidated by other women, making myself small or talking other women down. But when I go beyond these judgments and projections, and really see other women for who they are, something changes, my body relaxes and deep, nurturing connecting begins.

I love cuddling and consensual touch as a way to go inwards, and from that space, connecting with others again.

Clowning & Intimacy with Lucy Hopkins

Hold Me in Your Arms With Gayatri Beegan

Hold Me in Your Arms With Gayatri Beegan

Many people have a deep longing to feel ‘held’ by another. Within a space of safety and security we can expand ever more fully into an experience; whether the heights of ecstasy or the depths of surrender.

In this workshop we explore what it means to hold someone – both physically and energetically. We play with different ways of holding in physical connection from a nurturing hug to an erotic restraint. Become skilful at holding with your presence and your heartfulness for more intimate and profound connections.

Tuning in to You - Embodied Meditation With Clara Gomez

Tuning in to You - Embodied Meditation With Clara Gomez

In this workshop we'll explore the role of self-awareness and of developing a deep connection to our truth as the basis for more authentic, fulfilling connections with others.

Often, in our longing to connect with others we neglect establishing a solid connection to ourselves first and run the risk of "getting lost" in the other, of overriding boundaries, or "checking-out" during interaction due to the disconnection from our own bodies, needs and desires in the present moment.

You will be guided through a series of embodied meditations to help develop a deeper understanding of our internal mechanisms at the physical, mental and emotional level, and learn tools that help navigate intensity in intimate situations with greater presence and awareness.

Some of the benefits of this practice:

- Interactions that are more authentic and fulfilling
- Empowerment through greater self-knowledge
- Gaining clarity around personal boundaries and desires
- Improved communication in intimacy
- Deeper states of presence and flow with a partner
