Whispers of Intimacy: Savouring Every Authentic Moment
Have you ever found yourself amidst dances, events, or workshops, yearning to genuinely connect with others? Wishing there were spaces where flirtatious energies could playfully dance or where a simple, platonic touch could resonate deeply with your heart? Whether you've recently ventured into singlehood, or have been walking the solo journey craving deeper bonds, or even if you're intertwined in the beautiful dance of monogamous or poly/open relationships, there exists a realm of intimacy waiting for you.
A realm where every moment is savoured, where the dance of connection is slowed down to truly honor the feelings, desires, and vulnerabilities that emerge when two souls meet.
To ensure a space of ease and safety, our journey delves into the energetic exchange of intimacy, learning to navigate desires and boundaries as an entry point. This is a fully clothed event, further emphasizing a pressure-free environment. Our focus is on the richness of authentic connections that can be found at the edges of platonic and flirtatious connections, honoring each individual's boundaries and wishes, we hope to create a space where everyone feels safe and respected.
And if you've ever been intrigued by deeper sensual realms but held back by apprehension, consider this your gentle invitation. Dive in, as we guide you on a journey to rediscover intimacy in its most authentic and heartwarming form.
How will we explore intimacy?
While intimacy often conjures images of physical touch and sexual or romantic possibilities, the essence of true intimacy lies much deeper. Through this workshop, we invite you to unravel your definitions of intimacy, shedding layers to discover the myriad emotions that form the foundation of genuine connections.
- Moment Slowing Practices: Techniques that amplify the beauty and richness in every shared moment.
- Desire & Connection: Unearth the power of clearly articulating desires and forging genuine connections.
- Beyond the Surface: Delve into speaking and meditation practices, fostering deep bonds with yourself and the group.
- Play & Exploration: Explore both platonic and flirtatious expressions of intimacy – from touch to silence, from words to play – all while connecting with the core essence of vulnerability and desire in a group dynamic.
Who is This Journey For?
From those rediscovering singlehood to couples exploring boundaries, from the verbally expressive to the quiet contemplators, this workshop is a space for all. If you seek a deeper bond with yourself and others, we welcome you.

Setting the Boundaries Clear:
Celebrating diverse connections, it's important to understand: There will be NO sexual acts, kissing, or erotic body-to-body touch. Our goal is to unearth the myriad emotions and richness that surface even before such connections take shape.
Though vast and multilayered, our journey into intimacy will explore the depth that precedes the act of physical closeness - this might involve movement together or solo and platonic touch like hugs or hand-to-arm contact. Your consent and personal boundaries are of utmost importance and we will support you in expressing your full ‘yes’ or ‘no’ on how to move or include your body in the group.
We invite you with an open heart, to immerse yourself in a journey of true connection, to welcome each soul, each emotion, and every experience while remaining rooted in what feels authentic, safe, and true for you. Rest assured, every step you take will be supported.
In a beautiful and relaxing venue in North London, we will gather and create a safe environment, to relax, move and be held in together. The venue is so special and offers a retreat like atmosphere with many spaces for you to chose from and a main room where the workshop will be held.
