Deep Love - Tantra retreat
mystic intimacy for couples
Teacher: Sabine Sonnenschein (AT)
Assistants: Michael Elarius Hofer (AT) & Niko Deininger (AT)

May 20th-27th, 2019, Kardamyli, Peleponnes, GREECE
Start: May 20th 6:30 p.m.
End: May 27th 11 a.m.


We invite you to have a deep tantric experience with your partner. We invite you to dive in absolute love and true intimacy for couples on a wonderful site at the sea in Greece. In this retreat a safe space is created, to let you arrive inside yourself, in your body, your sensations, emotions and in your inner strength. In a clear way you will become aware of the female/male inside you. You realize how you are as a woman/man in this specific period of your life and what your concerns as a man or a woman are.  You will realize your higher self and your freedom in this week and meet your partner from that place of freedom.
We sensitize and open our bodies by tantric breathing practices and tantric massages. You will feel and cleanse your physical, energetic and emotional body. You will become aware of your heart. Your ability to love will be increased. Your (sexual) energy and life force will be nurtured und will flow freely, for your benefit and for the benefit of your partner. The more we are able to listen to each other and the clearer we communicate, the less misunderstandings occur and the more we can unite and become a superorganism together.
In meditations you will experience expansion into the space, unity of all inside you with all outside of you and unity with the universe.
In the nature and in the sea we will feel how we open ourselves, get wide and free. 
Free from everyday life, the retreat provides to meet your partner in a deeper way, to meet the true being of your partner and to experience mystic intimacy. In the retreat inner and outer cleansing takes place and it will be transforming for sure.
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 seize of our group ( 7 couples max.) we offer personal care and advice for you.

<3 Feeling the female /male inside you and realizing your concerns as a woman / man in that period of your life.

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?

„As a child i already had a very good connection to the spirit world. As a teenage i got more sensitive and clairvoyant and was looking for the best teachers in energetic work, to learn to control these abilities. Since that, every day my life gets more beautiful and worth living. I’m looking forward to sharing a part of the path with you”.

"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."
M. (weiblich, 36)



"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".
