In this weekend we will bring inspirations and practices together from Circling and Tantra.
Together we will deeply explore questions such as:
How can I consciously co-create embodied intimacy and authentic connection - without losing my sense of autonomy?
How can I deepen my relationships to my loved ones, enable more love to flow between us, and experience more aliveness and energy?

The ancient Tantric teachings tell us that we don't need to "create" love and connection - rather we can invite ourselves and each other to get out of our own way. We can allow ourselves to be touched and surrender to what IS.
We will get in contact energetically, through breathing, in a subtle and holistic way. We become able to see the true being of the other.
We will use Circling practices to recognise and name what gets in our way in THIS moment of authentic connection: our often automatic patterns of defence that draw our attention away from this unique moment of meeting and being met.
You will learn practices from Circling and Tantra that allow us to experience a heightened energy and presence as well as a very real and directly felt connection with the other. You will explore what enables energetic, emotional and physical connection to arise, and how you can enhance it.
The qualities of compassion, courage and curiosity allows us to perceive the world through the eyes of your partner, and to attune energetically to the state he or she is in.
We are holding a space for each other, in which we profoundly feel seen by the other!
Are you willing to open for the Unknown that might be possible between us? This way of being with each other requires a willingness to be vulnerable. When we do that, we cannot predict what will unfold between us. What we can promise is that it will enhance your capacity to stay present - in other words, to meet that which is real between you with love and curiosity - even if it takes you to the edges of your comfort zone.
You are welcome to come alone or with partner/s or lover/s.
Facilitation in German and English.
