In addition to our Womens’, Mixed and Couples programmes, we have a number of Stand Alone workshops for individuals and couples which have a special theme. These cover specific aspects of sexuality and focus on some more advanced topics for people with experience of working with tantra and sexuality.

A very liberating and beautiful experience! – thank you.‘
Rose and Thorn – 3 day workshop
Tantra meets BDSM (Bondage, Discipline, Domination, Submission, Sado–Masochism). Rose & Thorn is a stand-alone workshop; it is a close companion to, & follows on from our Aspects workshop.
The power dynamic is present in all of our encounters and relationships and exerting or surrendering our power with another can hold both fascination and fear. BDSM is a practice which explicitly explores the use of power and this workshop weaves the excitement and energy of BDSM with the principles of Tantra. Our intent is to provide clear guidance about the use of BDSM techniques as a means of attaining immense pleasure, deep connection and learning and to offer experiences of BDSM in a safe, immensely exciting and heartfelt way.
The workshop is open to both individuals and couples and will involve experiential interplay. We welcome people who are new to BDSM and also those who have experience and wish to indulge their passion.
Yin Yang Days
Yin Yang can be seen in terms of the ancient oriental concept of ‘Yin Yang’ symbols of the complimentary principals of negative/positive receptive/active female/male. The yang partner expresses wishes. The Yin partner fulfils those wishes. They then change roles back and forth.
What is learnt is to take responsibility for and expressing your desires including your wildest dreams being inventive, creative, challenging, generous, open, receptive, responsive, loving and playful.
This day will challenge your deepest inhibitions about deserving pleasure, asking for what you really want and your deep desires for wanting the very best for ourselves.
To be able to receive without having to reciprocate is rare. This structure game takes you to some of those rare moments. You can discover that giving yourself permission to ask for what you want is a gigantic step in your growth as a happy fulfilled mature human being.
From the yin perspective there is the learning that in the giving you can merge and become as one in a reciprocal energy exchange. The Yin Yang Day provides a safe environment, where you can look at boundaries, communication, intimacy and affection. It is a drug and alcohol-free way to meet fascinating people in a relaxed setting, a laboratory in which you can experiment with what makes you feel alive, adventurous and safe. Yin Yang is a place to reframe your assumptions about men and women and remember, you don’t have to do what you don’t want to do EVER.
“A woman’s highest calling is to lead a man to his soul, so as to unite him with the source;
Her lowest calling is to seduce, separating man from his soul and leave him aimlessly wandering.
A man’s highest calling is to protect woman, so she is free to walk the earth unharmed.
Man’s lowest calling is to ambush and force his way into the life of a woman.”
