The Dark Erotic

August 2nd – 4th, 2019

The Dark Erotic is a weekend immersion into the realms of eros, love and wild living. When we peel away the masks of conformity, homogeny and control, what emerges from deep within is the true expression of the ‘self’- the ecstatic nature of our soul.
The Dark Erotic is an invitation to explore the unexpressed aspects of your eros, heart and primal wisdom.
The Dark Erotic will take you on a deep journey through the ancient archetypes of the wild god pan and dark goddess Lilith. Through these archetypes, we will be exploring our own dark erotic expression of lust, desire, penetration and receptivity and the pleasure that is inherent in these expressions. Archetypal energies allow us to explore the hidden and overactive patterns of our sexuality. Working with archetypes opens a doorway to embody a more powerful and integrated expression of our sexual self. Pan and Lilith teach us how to activate and use our primal sexual power in a balanced way.
The Dark Erotic will also delve deeply into the erotic wisdom of the heart, into heart sex. We will explore erotic intimacy through the heart as a gateway to reveal our true power and vulnerability, we will crack open together. Through ritual and group practices we will open the ecstatic realms into transcendental love which penetrates the core of every atom, breaking through all armour of the heart.
We will meet in the sublime state of rapture.
This weekend is for anyone who is brave enough to penetrate the layers of control, resistance and self imposed limitations that buffer the aliveness and ecstasy of our soul.
This is a weekend to remind you that you are already free.
We will delve into the following ;
Exploration of masculine/ feminine polarity beyond gender- penetrative and receptive powers.
Shadow hunting- consciously working with the unconscious energies of the psyche, dancing with what we hide, uncovering shame and fear- bringing it back home to love.
Exploring our unique expression of eros and love- riding the ecstatic current- guided by the limitless nature of our soul.
We will delve into our wilderness- the untamed parts of our self, our unbridled self.
We will expand our capacity for intimacy, pleasure and love, opening to more life force.
We will deepen the power of our sexual expression beyond gender, identity and body-mind constructs. We will uncap whatever is buffering the erotic force that wants to thunder through – your aliveness.
You will have the opportunity to explore greater intimacy between yourself and others- this is a weekend where we offer full permission to show up as you are authentically.
To express your aliveness that is unique to you.
To feel your inherent freedom as a soul.
The weekend will include;
Individual and group practices
