Sacred Desire Playground
The next step - diving deeper into the gift of conscious sexuality
October 27 - 29th 2023, Österbybruk
Have you been exploring conscious or sacred sexuality and you are interested in more?
Are you up for exploring how your shadows are holding you back in becoming more of what you actually are?
Are you ready to leave behind any shame and choose a path of stronger self-love and self-care?
It the answer is yes, please keep reading!
"This is an opportunity for deep healing through playfulness, desire and conscious kink. And its very, very safe, you do what you want to and everything is possible."
From tender to spicy,
from light to dark,
come explore and expand your comfortzone with us.
As you are well aware of, consent and integrity are crucial to establish the fertile ground we want to grow in.
However many workshops we have undertaken on this subject, there are always layers deeper into the fun of freely asking and courageously requesting what we want.
We’ll explore the difference between a ‘Yes’ and a ‘Hell Yes!’, as well as get more intimate with ‘No’s’.
Can a ‘No’ feel even good to express? Or to receive?
Can caring for a boundary even feel pleasurable?
Play safe and with pleasure!
We want to create an environment where we can expand our range of sensational and sensual experiences. Through conscious kink, polarity games and the power of ritual we get to shine light on the parts of us that might be hidden in the shadows.
This is shadow work: instead of being ruled by them in our decision making without knowing it, we can have lots of fun in learning how to play with them in awareness.
This weekend is about integrating our shadows in a light way while being gently and surely held by the group.
We believe that this is peacework: together we can un-shame and heal old wounds that have been with us for centuries. We'll be embracing and playing with the wide spectrum of genders, abilities, ages and identities.
"A huge surprise I in how deep the work is.
I feel very very grateful and humble. I know the tantra world, but this is something different. It’s another kind of work, looking and inviting for something else.
It’s also about so much more than sex - It is about LIFE ENERGY. It’s a bridge to reach levels in myself - and I speak as a person who has had many years of therapy. And you see me here… It's amazing work!
I’m back home now and in a wonderful state. I feel more connected to me as a body and I’m so immensely in love with Life.
I also found myself more deeply connected to my husband with whom I have been together for 24 years. My body really loves to be back home with him. Lovely. Small surprise actually. Usually it takes days to calibrate to each other after workshops…
I think the Playground weekend made me more relaxed and at the same time more disentangled from him/others - more free to be me. And that makes love flow so much more freely.
You do alchemy!"

"A bit like onboarding a new rollercoaster at the entertainment park. You know things are gonna happen, but don't know What and When and How. You're safe! You may like it, get scared, laugh and/or cry. But you'll definitely remember the ride!"
