Out of the huts of history’s shame
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
This journey is for everyone who wants to dive deeply into their inner waters.
Those waters that wash over us, soften us, steer us. Teaching us to surrender.
Encouraging us to let go of our fears so that we can step into our highest potential.
By allowing life force to flow freely through us, we become channels of inspiration, of healing, of connection for each other.
We immerse ourselves into the deep subconscious waters. Being washed ashore, we lovingly bring that to the surface which is ready to be looked at, to be seen, to be transformed. Using Eros as our sacred medicine that intuitively knows its way.
In Eros we trust.
We open up to our deepest sexual desires, in full acknowledgement that we may not be there yet. As we need to feel safe, to be seen, to have our boundaries respected first.
By co-creating a container of love, transparency, trust and support, we can then go on a journey to explore a playground of infinite possibilities.
Bringing awareness to our needs and desires, listening with an open heart, and expressing them in synergy with the group body.
Giving ourselves full permission for our pleasure.
For our joy.
For our pain.
For our healing.
Together we rise.
My soul is full of longing for the secret of the sea, and the heart of the great ocean sends a thrilling pulse through me.

Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of previous experience do I need in order to attend the retreat?
It’s not so important whether you’ve been to sex-positive spaces before.
What is more important is that you’re familiar with consent practices (“NO is a full sentence”), nervous system regulation when triggers arise and a willingness and curiosity to dive into the journey as deep as you want, taking care of your own personal experience.
Do I need to be naked?
We want to create a container where everyone feels included, no matter whether they want to be naked or have their clothes on. We also want to celebrate and welcome the diverse beauty of all body types. You can decide for yourself what level of nudity you’re personally comfortable with.
Do I have to participate in sexual activities?
We will open up a container where sexual energy can be expressed, given the involved parties have provided their consent.
Please make sure you have a full YES before engaging with others sexually. All offered exercises are simply invitations. You can always choose not to participate in any of the offerings / you can choose to adjust them in a way they fit your personal preference.
Can I come with my partner?
If you choose to come together as a couple, it’s advised to check in with each other beforehand on your boundaries regarding exercises and experiences with other people. It’s also possible to do the partner exercises just with each other. Please let the retreat facilitator know in advance if this is your choice.
If you are in a partnership and come solo, please also check in with your partner beforehand e.g. regarding boundaries, communication during the retreat and aftercare.
