we create a space of mindfulness, secureness, love and respect. In that
save space we listen to ourselves and sense our (sexual) energy. You
will get aware of your body, your breath, your emotions, the space around
you, the others and their energies. A space of listening to each other
is created. We meet others and exchange with others in dancing, tantric
breathing and in tantric massage.

We learn to sense energy and let it flow through
the body and to direct that energy where we want to have it.
We will connect your space of the heart with
your sexual center.
You are invited to get aware of your personal limits and taboos and
to look at them with a loving eye. You might preserve them, experiment
with them or, if you like, transcend them.
We share our experiences, respecting our personal limits, boundaries
and vulnerabilities. You practice awareness in contact with others,
responsibility for yourself and empathy for others.
Some knowledge in Tantra, dance or
massage is not necessary.
You can come
alone or with partner/s. Solo attenders will find partners for the exercises
and the massage amongst each other.
Please wear clothes, in which you can
breath and move easily.
