Deep Love - The Art of Relation
Tantra Retreat for Couples
June 14th-20th, 2021, Kardamyli, Peloponnese, Greece

Tantra Teacher: Sabine Sonnenschein (AT) 
Soul Care: Christian Neher (DE/AT)
Organisation: Niko Deininger (AT)




This tantra retreat at a wonderful place by the sea creates a safe space to become well aware of your inner being, inner needs, longings and to let your power of love flow freely. You will experience expansion and freedom.
The retreat guides you through practices to cleanse and transform barriers and burdens in your sexuality: negative experiences, traumata, harm, fear, shame, guilt.
Through tantric massages, tantric rituals, meditation and dance we sensitize and open ourselves and our bodies. Your ability to love gets stronger, your (sexual) energy and life force are nourished.
You create a culture of love in a balance of giving and receiving with your partner. You create an art of relation, a culture of truth and depth in connection with your partner through your ability to be transparent to your partner, also in your vulnerability.
We offer ways of true connection physically, emotionally, energeticallly, spiritually, ideationally.
We transmit consciousness, sexuality as spiritual practice, sensitizing of sexuality, slowdown, deepening of the breathing and directing of energy.
We invite you to dive into absolute love and true intimacy for couples.
In your sexual connection you will experience more depth, more possibilities and more free play.
You will see clearly, what is important to you as a woman/as a man at this specific period of your life.
As a woman you may let your love overflow and send your love energy from your heart, breasts, uterus, yoni (vagina) as well as receive love energy with your yoni (vagina), uterus, heart.
As a man you may let your love overflow and send your love energy from your heart, lingam (penis), prostate as well as receive love energy with your heart and whole body.

What you experience in this retreat in a safe space:

<3 Kashmiri tantric massage (as taught by Daniel Odier)
Bring energies to the heart, so they may overflow. Give love, very healing massage through deep release and comfort. Belly breathing is the base; come into vibration together through the breath.; spanda (vibration, divine consciousness, awareness) erfahren; experience the whole body in a sensual, erotic way.

<3 Cervix massage (sensitizing and healing; you might experience deep sexual pleasure in your uturus). The uterus is very important for a deep connection with your partner.

<3 Prostate massage (sensitizing, healing, for prevention; pleasure in the lingam and prostate at the same time; pleasure deep in the inside of the pelvis; massage of pelvic floor and reduction of tension in the pelvic floor.)

<3 Practices, that evoke true and mystic intimacy; really see/recognize your partner, really be seen/ recognized by your partner
Rituals of purifying from negative experiences and transformation and freeing from shame, fear and guilt concerning sexuality.

<3 Conscious communication, partner coaching, practices of purifying your relation.

<3 Control of ejaculation (become able to hold (sexual) energy and not lose it; having an ejaculation whenever you want). Sexual encounter as union in love and creating energy together instead of discharge and stress release through orgasm as a program.

<3 Finding clarity about what you want to experience in your sexuality and how this matches with what your partner wants to experience in her/his sexuality. What does this intimacy mean for you and your partner?

<3 Half of a day women in exchange with each other and men in exchange with each other
Becoming clear about what is important to you as a woman/as a man at this specific period of your life.

<3 Directing and sending of energy and energetic circuits
in your own body or with your partner (for example to connect the space of the heart with the sexual centre/sexual organs). In that way love energy will circulate through you as a couple.

<3 Tantric breathing to open and sensitize the energy centres of your body and for energizing

<3 Meditations (samadhi of the space, tandava – mystic dance meditation, visualisations of Kashmiri tantrism)

<3 Dance, elements of the dance form contact improvisation

<3 Breathe and move in water together with your partner

You do all intimate tantric practices with your partner!
The partner, with whom you  participate, can be your partner in life or just for the retreat!
Because of the small size of our group ( 7 couples max.) we offer personal care and advice for you.

The place of the retreat has a view of the sea and a pool.
Beaches: Rock beach with impressive grotto to dive in, sand beach; pebble beach in 20-30 minutes by foot from accommodation.

You can only participate in this retreat with a partner!
Couples living in a monogamous or polyamorous way are warmly welcome! You get supported in the retreat to define your form of relationship. The way we teach tantra we don’t favour a special form of relationship, but we have experience with different forms of relationship and their advantages and disadvantages.
It’s important to clear with your partner, how you and your partner want to live relationship and what relationship means to both of you. What means intimacy for you and your partner?
It’s important to know and tell your partner, what you want to experience in your sexuality. Clarify with your partner, what to experience together sexually.

In the retreat you may fully focus on each other as a couple or be more in exchange with others.

The place offers 7 simple and neat double rooms, vegetarian meals, a pool, a magical garden with cozy places and a loving care on site.

The retreat in calm nature at the sea provides inner purifying and opening. To support the cleansing of the body there will be no alcohol and no meat.

When you register, you receive more detailed information for travelling to make it easy and cheap for you to get there. There will be also a group on WhatsApp or facebook for the travelling.
Regarding the CO² emission, we recommend not to travel by plane, but by train, bus and ship or car. Travelling by train, bus and ship from Austria, Germany or Switzerland is rather expensive though.
Rental cars in Greece are very cheap at that time of the year.

"Hi Sabine and Christian,
The seminar was very good for me. Until yesterday, I thought I had learned enough but today was also great. I appreciate the build up exercises to the massage which I found to be very helpful in warming up and activating the chakras. It's been a renewal path for me for which I'm very grateful to you. Your teaching methods are also very great with lots of demos and active guidance during the practice exercises.
Thanks a lot again!

"Liebe Sabine, (...)
danke immer wieder zutiefst für deine liebevolle achtsame Präsenz und dein Wirken… 
ich liebe dein wesen, das sich uns in voller präsenz, in seiner natürlichkeit und bewussten verkörperung zeigt, uns mit deiner achtsamkeit und hingabe tief berührt und öffnet, das vielseitige wissen in leichtigkeit wie durch blosses ausatmen darbietend, das durch jede bewegung, jede regung in ihrer wahrhaftigkeit und anmut, sinnlichkeit, kraft und sanftheit ein genussvolles wahrnehmen der schöpfung ermöglicht, das uns räume öffnet, wo verbundenheit und akzeptanz als natürlicher zustand erfahrbar werden, begrenzendes wie von selbst dahinschmilzt, unterschiedliche dimensionen sich mühelos durchdringen, berührungen auch jenseits des physischen fühlbar werden, sich das sein in wogen aus vertrauten und ebenso überraschenden energien geborgen, getragen und emporgehoben fühlt, . . . 
eine grosse Herzensumarmung, M."

"Liebe Sabine,

Ich wollte mich den langen Reihen der Umarmungen und Rückmeldungen am Sonntag nicht mehr anschließen, aber ich möchte mich bei Dir bedanken für den schönen Begegnungsraum, den Du für uns aufgemacht hast. Für mich war es ein sehr stimmiger Bogen, in dem Du uns schrittweise zusammengeführt hast und ich habe mich wirklich noch nie in einer Gruppe so wohl gefühlt. Du hast mit wunderschönen Übungen dunkle Stimmungswolken verscheucht oder uns Ausdrucksräume für Emotionen gegeben und ich habe es sehr bewundert, wie Du uns alle in einer Schlussrunde gelandet hast, bei der eigentlich jedeR mindestens ein Geschenk mitgenommen hatte, obwohl wir in der Früh teilweise noch erschöpft oder düster gestimmt waren. 

Ich war sehr beeindruckt von der Unterschiedlichkeit der Begegnungen und habe viel über mich und meine verschiedenen Möglichkeiten mit jemandem in Kontakt zu sein gelernt. Ich kann besser in der Berührung hinhören und bin noch immer am Staunen darüber, dass man mit jemandem über den Energieraum dazwischen aus der Distanz in Kommunikation sein kann. Ich weiß noch nicht richtig wie ich das mit meiner Chi - Faszien - Theorie in Einklang bringen soll, aber es ist das unglaublichste Gefühl, darum denke ich über die naturwissenschaftliche Einordnung im Moment nicht nach. 

Über die Positionenwechsel in der Massage hätte ich gerne mehr gelernt bzw sie im Trockentraining vorher einmal geübt, weil es einen sehr großen Unterschied macht, ob man jemanden sicher und beschützend in die andere Position führt, mit der Möglichkeit sich anzuvertrauen und dabei zu entspannen oder ob man logistisch überfordert herumzieht und eben kein geschütztes Gefühl vermittelt. Es war trotzdem alles gut, aber das war etwas das ich mir gewünscht hätte von vornherein besser zu können.

Vielen Dank für diese erlebnisreichen, lebendigen und wunderschönen Tage, die noch in mir nachwirken und Kreise ziehen und dafür, dass Du soviele nette Menschen an einem Fleck versammelt hast!

Alles Liebe, A."

"Liebe Sabine, danke für die schönen Momente, die du ermöglicht hast. Bin heute gesund und munter und noch immer beflügelt von der Massage: Alles Liebe, M."

"vielen dank noch mal für deine unglaublich berührende art. ich hab das gefühl einer meiner wichtigen lebenslehrerinnen in dir begegnet zu sein:)
danke für deine achtsamkeit!"

N. (weiblich, 30 Jahre, Juli 2013)


"Hi Sabine
How are you?
I'm writing to tell you that this experience with contact and tantra was very very important and beautiful for me, and changing my life. Also the dance, but mainly the work with chakra and breath.
For sure I'll participate to other workshops, please continue to informing me". 

C. (female, 28 years old, 2014)


"Nachträglich möchte ich dir noch sagen, dass es mir sehr gut gefallen hat, es war sehr aufregend und auch schön für mich. Zeitweise habe ich über die Räume, die sich geöffnet haben, nur so gestaunt oder mich wir ein kleines Kind gefreut".
