Playful Intimacy

A deep dive for couples who like to (re)discover each other in intimacy and love 

Our intimate relationship is thé place for our passion and life energy to flow freely. 
At the same time it is a mirror that can be confronting. 
To keep our intimacy, our love and our sexy life energy alive, we need to give it attention and stay curious…

This weekend is for exploring yourself and each other in a conscious and playful way.
We learn to listen to the language and secrets of our bodies. 
We will explore touch, arousal and relaxation. 
We will play with intensity, sensual and sexual energy, with breath, with naughtiness. 
We will give and receive, lead and surrender.

We will touch on topics like: what kind of erotic being are you? What opens you up? What closes you down? What are your deeper longings? How do you like to be touched? Do you dare to show yourself fully? How can you be present with each other?

We make space for all that comes up, for communication practices, for relational patterns you encouter.
You are invited to find and follow your own and each others rhythm and pace.
You are free to engage this weekend, you do not have to do anything you do not like.
In a group with other couples you can learn and support each other, you can see and be seen.

This retreat is a present and a deep dive for you as a couple.
As a team we are there to guide you on this journey. 

Is this workshop for me?

This weekend is for partner couples in all constellations, for everybody who wants to explore more love, more intimacy, more freedom.

This weekend is about exploring and deep diving in yourself and your relationship in a group where respect for everybody’s boundaries and desires is very important. Some of the exercises you are invited to exhange with others, however you can always choose to stay with your partner only. This retreat is about ‘sex’, it is about intimacy, playfulness and connection. 

Who are we?

This weekend is guided by Silvia together with a team of special and experienced people. 

Silvia
My whole life is an inquiry around connection, intimacy and sexuality. Everything I transmit comes from personal experience, infinite exploration and curiousity.
It’s a search for selflove, shared love and many different ways to love.
I challenge others to find their own essence, their own rhythm, their own sexy life energy and connect from there to others. 
I use different forms of body awareness to connect to all sensations in our bodies. Elements from tantra, tao, shibari, conscious kink, emotional bodywork, shadow work, non-violent communication, also movement like yoga, martial arts, dance. Everything necessary to experience freedom in yourself. 
And the more I allow myself to feel and experience everything deeply, the more my life energy is flowing, not from my head, but from my body, my passion, my soul. I like sharing this with others.

Nanne
Pure, full of life, enthusiastic and dedicated. In everything. Also as a student in slowing down, in stillness, in feeling. In everything. Also in whatever I encounter in stillness, however exciting it might be.
Learned to embrace and integrate loneliness, fear and sadness in order to become whole. To be able to stand fully in my 4 L’s: love, light, life and lust.
Full of fire and passion, small and vulnerable. My intuition as my source and guide, reservoir of life force energy.
Together with my man Edward we touch everything on the lemniscate of love. Lifting each other, learning about ourselves through the other.
Special forces in the battle of love! Such abundance. Grateful.

Edward
“Transformational Love” I approach life as a journey with a variety of steps and stages. What I had to learn in previous stages, I would like to share, transmit and embody in the present.
Using my strength and vulnerability to show that ‘you teach best what you need to learn most’ applies to me.’To be a student of life’, is my motto.
I am a passionate coach and mentor with 30 years of experience. I practice ‘tough love’: being honest, direct and loving at the same time. I am trained as a coach in systemic work and bodywork.
Together with my wife Nanne we are committed to the tantric way of living.

More teammembers soon to be announced...
